Nela al'Caar is a woman from Emond's Field (TSR, Ch. 45). Her husband is Paet al'Caar (TGH, Ch. 23). She has raised four children, the youngest being six years older than Perrin (TSR, Ch. 45). Two of her children are sons (TGH, Ch. 23).
She has a long face and a gray-streaked braid (TSR, Ch. 45).
Shortly after a battle against the Trollocs and after the Tuatha'an arrive in Emond's Field, Nela asks Perrin where the children should be allowed to play. Perrin replies in exasperation that she knows more about children than he does, and that as long as they don't go beyond the houses, they can play anywhere. She replies that she just wanted to make sure it was done according to his wishes (TSR, Ch. 45).
In the second arch of Nynaeve's Accepted's test, Marin al'Vere tells Nynaeve that Nela al'Caar went crazy after her two sons were discovered dead. She was found wandering around, laughing and crying at the same time, and screaming that her husband was the Dark One and that he had murdered their sons (TGH, Ch. 23).
