* IWasQuiteALooker: Despite his rough-hewn features in the main books, he was more or less a {{bishounen}} in his youth, and a ladies' man as a result. We see some of this in ''New Spring''.



* LastOfHisKind: The last pure Malkieri of the royal line.

* LastOfHisKind: The last pure Malkieri of the royal line.line, and he regards himself as the last of the Malkieri in general. This is subverted in the last few books, as Nynaeve gathers together the remaining diaspora of his countrymen so they can fight together in the Last Battle, [[spoiler: and with the Dark One re-sealed, it's reasonable to assume they were able to re-found their country]].

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:She survives the Last Battle and her ultimate fate is being detained in an Ogier ''stedding'' with the hope that, given time, she may yet turn back to the Light.]]

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:She survives the Last Battle and her ultimate fate is being detained in an Ogier ''stedding'' with the hope that, given time, she may yet turn back to the Light. While not the most ideal of fates, it's vastly better than what most evil characters and many of the good guys get.]]

* WrongGenreSavvy: Elaida had basically attached herself to House Trakand of Andor because she had a fortelling that the royal line of Andor would be all important in the Last Battle. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, as it turns out, Rand Al'Thor, the prophesised saviour of the world just happens to be the son of a previous heir to the throne who went AWOL. Whoops.]].
** The current Queen of Andor could very well have a very large role to play in the Last Battle.

* TheUnfettered: She's utterly dedicated to her quest and, in her own words, will do anything short of [[BadFuture bedding Rand]] to see the Dragon fulfill his destiny.

* TheUnfettered: She's utterly dedicated to her quest and, in her own words, will do anything short of [[BadFuture bedding Rand]] to see the Dragon fulfill his destiny. (And even for ''that'', she clearly considered it; the only reason she won't is because she had a vision of the future where she tried it and it made everything go very, very badly.)

* LoopholeAbuse: They are very big fans of telling truths FromACertainPointOfView, and follow this route through much of their interactions as well.

* {{Determinator}}
* LightningBruiser
* MasterSwordsman

to:

* {{Determinator}}
{{Determinator}}: Most get chosen for the bond ''because'' they're already this. However, even those who don't start out as determined doers quickly become such, thanks to the gifts the bond brings and to the culture that exists around warders.
* LightningBruiser
LightningBruiser: Most qualify as soon as the bond settles on them: enhanced reflexes are part of the package.
* MasterSwordsmanMasterSwordsman: Even if they don't start out this way, most wind up training to be masterful with not just a sword, but many other weapons, too.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: Not mentioned much, given that she is an Aes Sedai and, being consequently removed from her old life, and all of her immediate relatives might be dead, but she is a scion of House Damodred of Cairhien, which was and still is a notorious vipers nest of politics, lies and assassinations. Her uncle was King Laman, whose blasphemous actions kicked off the Aiel War, and her half-brother was Taringail, husband of Tigraine of Andor - with whom he had a son, Galad - and, following her disappearance, of her distant cousin Queen Morgase of Andor - with whom he fathered Gawyn and Elayne. Taringail secretly plotted to murder Morgase and usurp her throne. [[spoiler: And to top it off, she marries Thom Merrilin, the man who ''assassinated'' Taringail when he found out about his evil scheme, and who became Morgase's ''lover'' afterwards no less.]] This, incidentally, makes her the ''aunt'' of Elayne, Galad and Gawyn, and sister-in-law of both Morgase ''and'' Rand's mother.
