Ihvon is a character in The Wheel of Time television series. He is portrayed by Emmanuel Imani.

Ihvon is one of Alanna Mosvani's two Warders, the other being Maksim. "The three of them have a complicated relationship built on love, sex and respect that welds them into a fearsome force in battle."[1]


Early life[]

Ihvon was born in Andor. Eventually, he was bonded by Alanna Mosvani as one of her Warders. He became her lover, as well as the lover of Alanna's other Warder, Maksim.[2]


Season 1[]

Maksim and Ihvon are camped with the Aes Sedai after the capture of Logain Ablar. They have dinner with the other Warders and Nynaeve al'Meara, and Ihvon is affectionately sitting by Maksim, as Stepin is joking about Lan's history. Nynaeve says she found Lan by tracking him, and Ihvon and the others laugh. When Nynaeve says that Warders are more fun than they look, Maksim jokes that he "looks fun", prompting a somewhat exasperated response from Ihvon. Nynaeve says that the Warders "serve" the Aes Sedai, and the group falls silent, with Stepin explaining that their bond is stronger than anything. Maksim says that they are proud to stand by the Aes Sedai, and Ihvon jokes that they are getting tired. When Alanna joins Maksim and Ihvon, the three retire for the night, with Ihvon once more stating that they are growing tired.

When Logain's followers attack the Aes Sedai camp, Ihvon and Maksim stand by Alanna as they hold off the oncoming army to let the others return to the cave, as they realize that Logain must have broken free. As Alanna unleashes a massive attack of the One Power, Ihvon and Maksim battle many soldiers fighting for the False Dragon. The three return to the cave as Liandrin and the other sisters link to gentle Logain, and Ihvon witnesses Alanna join the Aes Sedai in doing so.[3]

Ihvon attends the mass funeral held for Kerene Nagashi, the King of Ghealdan, and the other combatants. The group makes their way back to Tar Valon over a month with Logain kept on a leash, and returns to the White Tower. Ihvon, Maksim and Lan are with Stepin as he prepares to burn Kerene's Great Serpent ring. Stepin considers being bonded by Alanna in order to help the loss of Kerene and serving alongside Maksim and Ihvon, but struggles with the idea. Eventually, he commits suicide due to the great sense of depression induced by his Aes Sedai's death. Ihvon attends Stepin's funeral with the other Warders and guests, dressed all in white.[4]

When Alanna is called to the Hall of the Tower by the Amyrlin Seat, Siuan Sanche, to answer for the extrajudicial gentling of Logain, Ihvon and Maksim are waiting for her when she is dismissed with the other Aes Sedai.[5]


Alanna and Maksim[]

Alanna, Ihvon, and Maksim are all lovers of one another. They have an extremely close relationship, and fight fiercely in battle together.

Physical appearance[]

Ihvon is a very dark-skinned man with dark, closely cropped hair.

Except me, of course. I look fun.
