EWoT: Renna Emain

For the similarly named Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah, see Rina Hafden.

Renna Emain was a Seanchan sul'dam.[1]


She was short of stature and pale with long brown hair and big brown eyes.



She was in Falme when Egwene al'Vere was captured and collared with an a'dam.[2] She was the one who held Egwene's leash the most during her time as a damane in Falme, including giving Egwene her damane name "Tuli". Egwene was later freed by Nynaeve al'Meara, Elayne Trakand and Min Farshaw, and the group left Renna and Seta, another sul'dam, collared by a'dam in Egwene's kennel while they made their escape.[3] On a planned visit to "Tuli", a third sul'dam Bethamin Zeami finds vomit-stained Seta and Renna attempting and failing to release each other from the a'dam. Bethamin is so terrified at the realization that sul'dam can be collared that she flees Falme, leaving the pair to be later found and released by Alwhin. Following this discovery Renna and Seta were kept under High Lady Suroth Sabelle Meldarath's watchful eyes in order to keep secret the knowledge that sul'dam could be held by a'dam and therefore were capable of channeling - a fact that could have toppled the whole Empire if it became common knowledge.


She then went to Ebou Dar to administer the damane kennels. She was no longer allowed to train damane. She used to be over-bearing but since Falme had become very timid.

Egeanin Tamarath was told by Bethamin Zeami about Renna and Falme. Egeanin then used Renna in Matrim Cauthon's plan to escape with some captive Aes Sedai. She held Teslyn's a'dam as they escaped from Ebou Dar.

After fleeing Ebou Dar, Mat's group joins up with Valan Luca's Traveling Show as a cover to escape Seanchan notice. She later stabbed Egeanin Tamarath and attempts to flee back to Seanchan controlled territory. She is killed by a crossbow bolt shot by Gorderan, and an arrow from a double curve horsebow shot by Harnan.[4]
