General Information

Ilyena Moerelle Dalisar was a woman alive during the Age of Legends. She was most known as the wife of Lews Therin Telamon. She had the nickname of Ilyena Sunhair as her hair was red-gold and very notable. She was described as having a pretty face, skin like cream, and has a strong resemblence to Elayne Trakand in hair color, leading to speculation that Elayne could be Ilyena reborn.


Ilyena was apparently a very coveted bachlorette before marrying Lews Therin Telamon in time before the end of the Age of Legends. She was desired by Barid Bel Medar who would later become Demandred. Mierin Eronaile, who would later become Lanfear, was extremely jealous of Ilyena.

Although it isn't known her profession during the Age of Legends, she attained a level of fame and contribution to society as she was given a third name, which was a very rare thing during the Age of Legends.

After Lews Therin Telamon and the Hundred Companions sealed the Bore on the Dark One's prison, the counterstroke by the Dark One tainted saidin and caused all the male channelers to go insane. Lews Therin was driven instantly insane due to his proximety to the Bore as it was sealed and he killed his family, including Ilyena.

Ilyena is constantly referenced by Lews Therin inside Rand's head during the Third Age as he remembers his wife whom he killed.
