Appearance & Personality
She is an older, bony woman who is short sighted and has to wear glasses. She relates choices made, by herself and others, to the Vorin faith and has a tendency to use all available opportunities to preach about the Almighty.
Despite her deep commitment to the Almighty, Jevena readily accepted Evi Kholin, regardless of her pagan beliefs, when she was first betrothed to Dalinar Kholin. Jevena saw an opportunity to convert the woman to Vorinism.
She led Gavilar's funeral, held in the Royal Catacombs in Kholinar, giving a eulogy for the deceased king as well as reading the ritual sayings, a collection of traditional and personal keteks. Like many of those in attendance, she found the Soulcaster to be unnerving and preferred to keep at a distance when they transformed the king's body into stone. After the Soulcaster was finished and the statue of Gavilar was in place, Elhokar, in front of those who had been in attendance, swore the other Highprinces to war against the Parshendi and created the Vengeance Pact.
