Aviendha was a Maiden of the Spear assigned to educate Rand al'Thor in Aiel ways after he became their Car'a'carn. She treated him very roughly due to her personal conflict over her attraction to him and her sense of honor regarding her close friend Elayne's nebulous relationship with him. She went on to become one of Rand's lovers as well as a powerful Wise One, and served as commander of the forces of the Light at Shayol Ghul in the Last Battle.

Weaknesses: None notable
Channeling the One Power: Aviendha is an extremely powerful channeler when compared with most others, although she is not nearly as powerful as the weakest of the Forsaken. She is very skilled at weaving many flows at the same time, allowing her to activate several weaves simultaneously.
A full explanation of channeling the One Power and the numerous abilities it grants is found here, while below is a list of Power-related abilities most relevant to Aviendha specifically:
- Ter'angreal Analysis: Aviendha has a rare Talent that allows her to divine the power and function of whatever object of Power she touches.
- Weave Unraveling: Aviendha is extremely skilled at unravelling weaves so that they uneventfully cease to exist instead of violently explode. The skill is considered extraordinarily difficult and dangerous by all Aes Sedai but it is taught among the Aiel, with Aviendha in particular having great natural talent for it.
