Affiliation Darkfriend

Isendre was in the company of a band of peddlers in the Aiel Waste and was also a Darkfriend.


She was young with dark hair and a pale, beautiful, heart-shaped face. She had dark eyes and a smoky voice.


She accompanied Hadnan Kadere and the rest of the peddlers into the Aiel Waste where they met up with Rand al'Thor.[1] She seemed to enjoy giving Rand seductive smiles on their way to Alcair Dal even though she was with Kadere. She even flirted with Matrim Cauthon for awhile. She was disgusted by Keille and was very rude to her and wasn't aware that she was, in fact, Lanfear in disguise. Lanfear got even with her later by planting stolen necklaces in her wagon, which the Aiel found and beat her for punishment.[2]

Seven times she tried to reach Rand's room to seduce him, but the maidens stopper her all but once. She was switched each time by the maidens. The last time when she entered his room Aviendha was there.[3] Afterwards she was made da'tsang by Maidens of the Spear. She only wore the bracelets she stole and nothing else. When the Aiel began to move towards Cairhien she was forced to wear black. She tried to sleep with Rand but only manages to sleep with Asmodean, who revealed nothing to her. Trying to again sneak into Rand's tent earns her a shaved head and a beating with stinging nettles all over her body and she finally broke. She was killed by Kadere when he gets worried she will reveal that he was also a Darkfriend.
