General

The full name was not recorded in the main series, but was given in the Wheel of Time Companion. Other information about the character is also included in the Companion, but we did not use it in the TarValon.Net Library.

Berana Shemon is a Sitter for the White Ajah chosen in Salidar. She stands for declaring war against Elaida (TPoD, Ch. 19). She is one of the Sitters whom Siuan pointed out as being too young. She reacts with icy cool to the fact that "talks with Elaida have been licensed". She stands for an agreement with the Black Tower (CoT, Ch. 19).

Berana has big brown eyes as cold as snow (CoT, Ch. 19).

In the discussion about the involvement with the Black Tower, Berana points out that absolute rationality is needed in negotiations with the Black Tower (CoT, Ch. 20).

She agrees with Egwene's plans to seize every Aes Sedai and make them re-swear the oaths (TGS, Ch. 43). She steps down after the Tower is re-unified (ToM, Ch. 27).

Quotes

Berana, face a mask of haughtiness and big brown eyes as cold as the snow, paused to offer cool courtesies to Egwene and frown at Akarrin. (Crossroads of Twilight, Chapter 19)

Dealing with the Asha'man was sure to inflame passions, and anything except cold logic would surely lead to disaster on the spot. (Berana; Crossroads of Twilight, Chapter 20)
