Aviendha of the Nine Valleys sept of the Taardad Aiel is one of the main characters of the Wheel of Time fantasy series by Robert Jordan.

She is tall and lovely with blue-green eyes. Her reddish hair was originally short with a tail in the back, and is now just short of her shoulders. She is about 5'9".

Aviendha enters the story as an Aiel Maiden of the Spear, a warrior woman who marries her weapon; she is of the Nine Valleys sept of the Taardad clan (though an early authorial error has her listed as being of the Bitter Water sept). She was one of the Aiel who ventured out of the Aiel Waste, across the Spine of the World and into the so-called "wetlands" in search of the Car'a'carn, the Aiel chief of chiefs, He Who Comes With The Dawn. This is the first time Aviendha, Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve meet. These Aiel aid Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve on their travels and eventually end up at the Stone of Tear where Rand took Callandor, the crystal sword sa'angreal. There Aviendha befriended the three women further, especially Egwene and Elayne, who she began to call her near-sisters according to Aiel custom.

While she would have gladly accompanied Elayne and Nynaeve to Tanchico to hunt Darkfriend, Aviendha was summoned back to Rhuidean in the Aiel Waste for unknown reasons. Making the best of it, she promised Elayne to keep an eye on Rand and departed, arriving in the company of Rand, Egwene, Moiraine Sedai and Lan Mandragoran. There the truth came out; Aviendha had been summoned because she had the ability to channel, and would be trained to join the ranks of the Wise Ones. She is about as strong in the Power as Elayne and Egwene, making her one of the strongest female channelers alive.

Aviendha has not been a contender in any CBUB matches.
