Bonds Held by Women
Alanna had two Warders, Ihvon and Owein.
When Alanna arrived in Caemlyn, with girls from the Two Rivers who could channel, Rand al'Thor went to visit them. Here, Alanna bonded him against his will (LoC, Ch. 10), something not done for hundreds of years, and frowned upon by most Aes Sedai. When Rand bonded Elayne, Min and Aviendha (WH, Ch. 12) Alanna fell unconscious.
Anaiya is an Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah, and is a warm, caring woman.
Both Asne and Powl are Darkfriends. The bond was masked when Asne left the Tower with Liandrin. Although her Gaidin would do anything for her, she masked her bond to all four Warders. Asne has now unmasked the bond with Powl (WH, Ch. 10).
The names of Asne other three Gaidin are not known. However, all three are sworn to the Light.
Beonin is an Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah.
Beldeine is a young green and Karldin her first warder. She is probably eight to ten years older than him
After the attack on Rand in the Sun Palace, Damer was listed as a diserter and didnt know where to go. Corele, an Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah, bonded him mainly for protection.
Demira is an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah.
Daigian is an Aes Sedai of low strength and a member of the White Ajah with impeccable logic.
Eldrith is an Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah. Kennit is sworn to the Light and has sworn to kill his Aes Sedai, no matter the affects that this will have on him.
Eldrith has masked her bond to Kennit, and is now in Caemlyn, waiting for something to do.
- Elayne Trakand, bonded to Birgitte Silverbow and Rand al'Thor
When Birgitte was ripped from Tel'aran'rhiod by Moghedien (TFoH, Ch. 35) she was doomed to die. To save her life, Elayne bonded Birgitte without her permission, but Birgitte stills repects the bond and is higly protective of Elayne.
When returning to Andor, Elayne gave Birgitte a title, estate, and made her the Captain-General of the Queen Quards.
Birgitte may be the first female Warder ever.
After confessing his love for Elayne, Rand allowed her to bond him (Winters Heart) and that night they spent the night together - much to Birgitte's displeasure. Elayne now carries Rand's twins.
Elza is an Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah and many people think that she is married to her Warder.
As she is supposedly of the Green Ajah, some Aes Sedai find it strange that she has only ever bonded one Warder at a time.
Up until Dumai's Wells, Erian has four Warders. During Rand's escape, he killed two of them, leaving Bartol and Rashan as her only remaining Warders.
She will only bond another if Sleete judges him worthy (TGS, Ch. 13).
It is assumed that they were murdered by the Black Ajah along with their Aes Sedai.

Morvrin is an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah and Jori is a very wide Warder.
Moiraine bonded Lan in 978 NE (NS, Epilogue). They were sworn to search for the Dragon Reborn, Rand al'Thor.
When Moiraine followed Rand into the Aiel Waste, she was told that if Lan had not come to the Aiel Waste, Moiraine would have died. Similarly, if Moiraine had not gone to the Aiel Waste, Lan would have died (TSR, Ch. 23).
It is thought that Myrelle could be married to any three of her Warders, if not all of them (ACoS, Ch. 12).
Avar has dark penetrating eyes and a gray mustache. Croi is possibly Myrelle's youngest Warder, and is an Andoran. He is slender with yellow hair. Nuhel is an Illianer and described as "dark and bulky, with a beard that left his upper lip bare" (ACoS, Ch. 12).
Avar and Nuhel were previously bonded to sisters who have died (ACoS, Ch. 12).
After Moiraine entered the Wise One ter'angreal in Rhuidean, she realized that she may die. In the event of her death, she did something that had not been done in four hundred years. Her bond to Lan would be passed on to Myrelle, so that Lan might survive her death. Moiraine made Lan promise not to try to avenge her death. Moiraine's bond is broken and it passes to Myrelle (TFoH, Ch. 52).
Myrelle has bonded Warders who have lost their Aes Sedai before, and they have lived longer than other Warders. Myrelle swore fealty to Egwene because Egwene promised to keep Lan's bond passing a secret (ACoS, Ch. 12).
Nynaeve now has the intention of making Myrelle hand over the bond as soon as possible (ACoS, Ch. 31).

Before Alric's death (TSR, Ch. 47) Siuan and Alric had been bonded for twenty years. Siuan sometimes had to send him great distances away from her and he never complained. After his death, she bonded Gareth at his insistance (TGS, Ch. 40).
