We killed your father, Jasnah Kholin.

—Gangnah to Jasnah[2]

Gangnah is a listener elder and foremost member of the Parshendi ruling council.[2]

History[edit]

Gangnah was a member of the Five during Eshonai's days of exploration and the beginning of Venli's search for new forms. She and the other elders heard both Eshonai's plea to unify the listeners and Venli's petition to try to adopt warform from the painspren she had trapped in a topaz. Gangnah expressed appreciation for Eshonai's efforts on her expedition but wished that the listeners did have a more unified government. After receiving doubtful comments from some of the other elders, Eshonai asked for permission to show the listeners her maps, thinking that her people would surely want to unite in the face of such a big world; after telling her that they would consider the matter more, Gangnah and the other four dismissed Eshonai and proceeded to interview Venli more closely.[3]

Gangnah attended the feast celebrating the signing of the peace treaty between the Alethi and the Parshendi. She, Varnali, and Klade remained behind in the wake of Szeth's assassination of the Alethi king, Gavilar Kholin. She confessed her responsibility for Gavilar's death to Brightlady Jasnah Kholin, but offered no explanation beyond that they were attempting to avoid the return of their gods. Gangnah and the other two were hanged for their crime.[2]
