Amira Moselle was an Aes Sedai and a former Sitter of the Red Ajah.[1]


She was stocky and wore her long hair braided in the Taraboner fashion.[1]

Strength and AbilitiesEdit

Being a Sitter in the Hall for a while means that Amira was also a high ranking sister and a strong channeler by Aes Sedai standards.

This is not confirmed by "The Wheel of Time Companion" where her level of strength is described as 27(15). But this is probably an error because this is the level of sisters with an average strength, and 14 levels below the strongest Sitters would mean that Amira was a too weak Sitter compared to them.

Amira's true level of strength can be guessed by the time she spent as novice and Accepted which was in total twenty years, roughly the same as sisters that are between levels 20(8) and 21(9), in fact the time spent in training usually reflects the strength of an Aes Sedai.


Amira was born in 823 NE and went to the Tower in 839 NE. She remained novice eleven years and nine as Accepted and she was raised to the shawl in 859 NE.

She was the Mistress of Novices during Sierin Vayu's time on the Amyrlin Seat.[1] At that time it was considered quite an odd choice that Sierin, elected Amyrlin from the Grey Ajah, chose as Mistress of Novices and Keeper of the Chronicles two sisters from the Red, as Amira e Duhara.

She was a Sitter for the Red Ajah in recent years.[2] Most probably she was elected Sitter in 985 NE, along Pevara and Teslyn, to replace the three Red Sitters deposed and exiled for the involvement of the Red Ajah in "the Vileness".


Sometime in 999 NE, she stepped down from her position as Sitter and was replaced in the Hall by Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan.[3]

Amira was one of the Aes Sedai sent in the secret expedition from the White Tower to kidnap Rand in Cairhien. She was killed at the Battle of Dumai's Wells.[4] [5]
