When Rhonin opens the portal to the small isle, Jaina's companions go before her. After she is pushed by Rhonin and awakens in the isle, they are nowhere to be found. What happened to them?
They are referred as companions rather vaguely, they also seem to be the ones that Jaina sends to look for Rhonin when she realizes that the Focusing Iris is dampening her portals. They get to Rhonin, and are referred as "the five Jaina had sent", again, pretty vague. He tells them to report back to Jaina, and finally they bring her to him and are sent through the portal first.
Where they supposed to be player characters of an scrapped scenario idea? They are never referred by race, name or occupation, they just seem to be a group of people following Jaina. I don't remember seeing them before Jaina is tending the wounded, maybe they where mentioned before.
