Masema Dagar

Mesema Dagar was once a Shienaran soldier who later became the Prophet of the Dragon. In the novel, when he first met Rand al'Thor he regarded him with barely disguised contempt due to Rand reminding him of the Aiel he faced in the Aiel War. He informed Rand that he couldn't leave Fal Dara while the Amyrlin Seat was present. Later Masema witnessed Rand's fight with Ishamael at Falme and started treating Rand with a religious fervor thus he is important for the plot. Most see, Arnas Fedaravicius as Masema Dagar, a warrior of Shienar.


Elayne Trakand 

Coveney's new character Elayne Trakand is by the Grace of the Light, Queen of Andor and Cairhien, Defender of the Realm, Protector of the People, High Seat of House Trakand, and Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. Elayne was born to Queen Morgase Trakand and Prince Taringail Damodred, and was Daughter-Heir of Andor from birth. As was tradition, she was sent to the White Tower for her education as Daughter-Heir, where she was enrolled as a novice after it was discovered that she had the potential to be one of the most powerful channelers of the era. She grew close to Egwene al'Vere, Nynaeve al'Meara, and Min Farshaw, and had their first encounter with the Seanchan and Black Ajah in Falme. Elayne was raised to be Accepted at the behest of the Amyrlin Seat, Siuan Sanche, and decided to hunt the Black Ajah in Tear with Egwene and Nynaeve.


Last year it was announced that Ayoola Smart would play the role of Aviendha. So let's take a look at who is Aviendha.  She is a Wise One of the Nine Valleys sept of the Taardad Aiel, and one of the three lovers of Rand al'Thor. Aviendha was once of the Far Dareis Mai, and was sent west of the Spine of the World to hunt for He Who Comes With the Dawn. On her return to the Three-Fold Land, she was made to give up the spear and train with the Wise Ones, as she was discovered to have the ability to channel the One Power, and was made an apprentice after her first visit to Rhuidean. 


Turak Aladon

The High Lord Turak of House Aladon was a Seanchan High Lord, and the original commander of the Hailene. Furthermore, it's been reported that Daniel Francis has been cast as High Lord Turak Aladon for Wheel of Time season 2.
