She can be daring, teasing Adolin while he's known to be courting someone else.
She was noted by Adolin to be very talkative about herself and court gossip, which he found dull.
Again, according to Shallan, the pretty young woman stands with her nose perpetually in the air, and is the type of person whose very enunciation makes Shallan's skin crawl. The woman's arrogance is what Shallan doesn't like - not, of course, that Adolin had been courting Janala soon before meeting herself.
For Shallan, something feels ... off about Janala. Like many women at court, her laughter sounds rehearsed, contained. Like she uses it as a seasoning, rather than actually feeling it.
The Way of Kings
She comes to fetch Adolin from a leatherworking shop, waving her handkerchief over her nose to ward off the foul smell, then bids him to walk with her.
Adolin then drags her to a temple which she finds unromantic, leaving soon after. After this rather poor date, Adolin's relationship with her is noted to be rocky, unable to be repaired by his expensive gifts.
After having been asked by Adrotagia about what she means with regard to mechanisms in the tower at Urithiru, Janala says that they talk about the lifts, the strange fabrial column, the twisting hallways. That they try to understand these things merely from their designs. That maybe instead they should figure out the tower's needs, and then work backward to determine how those things might have been met.
