|Groups||Taishin, The Field|
|Featured In||White Sand|
Appearance and Personality
He is a broad-shouldered man with a full bushy red beard and shoulder length hair.
In the first vote of the Taishin on the subject, Gennel voted for the dissolution of the Diem, saying that sand mastery is too dangerous. He was unavailable when N'Teese attempted to set up a meeting with him on behalf of Khriss.
When Kenton was searching for Vey he visited Gennel in his home and used his sand to pull Gennel's assistant into the air and threatened to turn it on him if he wouldn't tell him where Vey went. Terrified, Gennel begged Kenton not make him tell since Vey will be very angry with him. Kenton realized he is being mean and let Gennel's assistant down. He then told Gennel that he won't force him to answer, but asked him to please tell him where Vey went. Gennel refuses and Kenton leaves.
In the final vote of the Taishin, Gennel voted in favor of the Diem. It is implied that this is because Gennel always listens to Vey.
”Vey will be very angry if I tell. I'm his... friend. Can't you ask someone else? Oh, please don't kill me!—Gennel to Kenton
