The Caniedrin wiki last edited by Spacey on 04/10/14 09:31PM View full history


Born and raised in Kandor, Caniedrin became a soldier as many Borderlander youth do. During the Aiel War he fought alongside al'Lan Mandragoran, distinguishing himself as a skilled soldier. He had a tendency to laugh in battle, and was often impatient to fight.  


Caniedrin was created by Robert Jordan for his book series The Wheel of Time, making his first appearance in the prequel, New Spring. He made his first comic appearance in Wheel of Time: New Spring #5, written by Jordan and Chuck Dixon and illustrated by Mike Miller

He is shot several times by Bukama and Ryne. With his dying breath he informs the group that he was hired to kill Moiraine. 

Powers and Abilities

Caniedrin was an archer of unusual skill. He was presumably also at least competent with a variety of weapons.
