Aludra is an Illuminator that was rescued by Mat in Aringill. She stole fireworks from the Illuminator's guild and gave some to Mat in return for his rescue. She has offered to build a weapon for Mat and travels with the Band of the Red Hand. Mat has feelings for her, and she for him, but it never comes to fruition. She was chased for awhile by Tammuz.
