Caraighan Maconar was an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah who lived between 212 and 373 AB. Caraighan is considered a legend, the archetypical Green sister and the embodiment of the goals and ideals of the Green Ajah.
Along with Rashima Kerenmosa and Cadsuane Melaidhrin, she is considered the greatest of the Green Ajah's heroes. Amongst her exploits were putting down a rebellion in Mosadorin and quelling the Comaidin Riots at a time when she had no Warders. At some point during the 4th century AB, she was raised to the Amyrlin Seat, and remained so until 373 AB.
Circa 300 AB, she took Mangore Kiramin, a sword-bard of Aramaelle, as her Warder. As well as an accomplished warrior, he also undertook a translation of the Prophecies of the Dragon that is still quoted and referred to today.
According to Loial, she is said to have brought a male channeler two thousand miles by her own after he killed both of her Warders to have him gentled in the White Tower. However, this is considered doubtful, since six Aes Sedai were not enough to capture Guaire Amalasan, or Yurian Stonebow. Indeed, many of her exploits are considered unlikely, despite being written of in White Tower records.
