Barel Layden is the High Seat of a minor Andoran House. He is one of the nobles who opposed Gaebril (LoC, Ch. 28). He supports Elayne's bid for the Lion Throne (KoD, Ch. 17).


  • Barel rides to Elayne's support when Arymilla begins the siege of Caemlyn. He does not turn back on learning the odds (KoD, Ch. 17).
  • On her way to the Map Room, Elayne stops to speak with several of the minor nobles who support her. Barel is one of them (KoD, Ch. 17),
  • When Birgitte arrives at one of the Traveling grounds to lead the soldiers in the rescue of Elayne from the Black Ajah, she finds all of the lords and ladies loyal to Elayne gathered and mounted. Barel rides down to lead his men, not hesitating when his banner appears (KoD, Ch. 32).
