Occupation Poet

Anasai, often titled of Shienar or of Ryddingwood, was a Shienaran poet.


One of her most famous and most often quoted lines is:

"The rosepetal floats on water.
The kingfisher flashes above the pond.
Life and beauty swirl in the midst of death."

   —Anasai of Shienar


It is unknown just how well known she was. Lan Mandragoran quoted her, yet it was revealed later that he knew her because she was a favourite of Moiraine Damodred's. Furthermore, her importance is hard to determine since it is not known if she is alive or not.


Her name was not revealed until A Memory of Light, nor her gender.
