Shandi was a performer with Lord Greyfallow's Men.

In the troupe

She worked with Teren.[1] Shandi made a cloak with many pockets for Kvothe's twelfth birthday.[2] After Abenthy's departure from the troupe, Shandi taught Kvothe courtly dances from around Temerant.[3]

She was killed by the Chandrian along with the rest of the troupe.[3]


During Kvothe's time in the forest, one of the songs he played of his memories was called Watching Shandi Dance.[4] When Kvothe had nightmares after killing Alleg's false troupe, he dreamt of chasing her through the forest as she cried.[5]
