Far Dareis Mai (a Maiden of the Spear).
One of the Forsken. Having been one of the first to awaken, and (as supposed by some of the other Chosen) too hasty, was killed in tEotW. He was the first of the Forsaken to be overocme, and is now believed to be Osan'gar.
Nynaeve was the Wisdom of Emond's Field, the same village as Mat, Egwene, Perrin, and Rand. She has very long, dark hair, which she normally keeps braided, amd dark eyes, as well. A strange habit of hers is to yank or pull her hair whenever she is nervous or angry. After following Egwene and the boys, Moiraine "discovered" her. After being brought to the originally united Tiwer, she was Raised to be Accepted on her first day of being there. SHe is currently the most powerful Aes Sedai. She is of the Yellow Ajah of the Salidar Aes Sedai, and is one of few who uses all five Powers in Healing, which is disconcerting to the older Yellows. She is also the first Aes Sedai to Heal stilling and gentling (she Healed Siuan and Leane's stillings, and, accidentally, Logain's getling). Though she is the wife to Lan (al'Lan Mandragoran, the uncrowned King of Malkier, signified by the ring Nynaeve wears around her neck), he is not her Warder. It is supposed that next time she and Myrelle meet, the bond will be passed to Nynaeve. Among her Talents is the ability to Dreamwalk with the use of a ter'angreal. As well, she uses aliases such as Mistress Maryim on The Darter in tDR when she needs to get around.
Not much is known about Kari other than that she was married to Tam al'Thor and that she was the foster mother of Rand. She expided with Tam to Dragonmount, thereby finding the baby Rand, nearly dead.
Lews Therin Telamon "Kinslayer" (the Dragon) Reborn. Rand has red hair and grey eyes, and is very tall. He is actually of Aiel descent. His mother was Tigraine, and he is therefore is Galad's half-brother. His Father was Janduin, an Aiel clan chief. He is the subject of at least three Prophecies, as well as a Darkfriend "Prophecy": The Karaethon Cycle (Prophecies of the Dragon), He Who Comes With the Dawn (Aiel Prophecy), Coramoor (Sea Folk Prophecy), and a Darkfriend Prophecy, an ambiguous prophecy, which I'll have to look up. He is in love with--and beloved of--Min, Aviendha, and Elayne, and formerly Egwene. He is from Emond's Field. He is also ta'veren of a greater degree than even the legendary Artur Hawkwing. His surrogate parents Tam and Kari al'Thor found him on the slopes of Dragonmount. He now has an unhealing scar from two battles: his battle with Ishamael over Falme (?) in tGH, and his fight with Padan Fain. In this instance, Fain wielded the ruby-hilted dagger that was from Shadar Logoth, and which the Aes Sedai Healed form Mat.
Tam was Rand's surrogate father in Emond's Field, Two Rivers (Manetheren), Andor
Along with Kari, he found Rand on the slopes of Dragonmount
He was one of few people to ever return to the Two Rivers after leaving.
He also possessed a heron-marked sword (the sign of a true blademaster), which he gave to Rand after the Winternight events of tEotW
Aldieb is Moiraine's white mare. Its name means "west wind" in the Old Tongue, namely the wind of the spring rains.
