General

Joslyn Aybara is a woman from the Two Rivers. She is married to Con Aybara, and their children are Perrin, Adora, Deselle and Paet. The Aybara family lives on a farm near Emond's Field (TEotW, Ravens Prologue; TSR, Ch. 29).

She is a pretty woman, with a smile to rival the sun (TEotW, Ravens Prologue).

Timeline

Miscellaneous

Quotes

“Mistress Aybara smiled fondly. Joslyn Aybara was a pretty woman, and when she smiled, it seemed the sun might bide its head in defeat.” (Egwene; The Eye of the World, Ravens Prologue).

“He should have restrained himself at the Aybara farm, but Con Aybara had laughed in his face, and Joslyn had called him a filthy-minded little fool for naming her son Darkfriend. Well, they had learned, screaming, burning.” (Padan Fain; The Shadow Rising, Chapter 31).
