Carlinya was an Aes Sedai of the White Ajah.

Appearance Edit

Carlinya was pale, with cool, almost black eyes and a broad face. She had dark hair which she wore short in a cap of curls.



She was somewhat messy, her hair sometimes being unkempt and her dress edge muddy from forgetting to wear a cloak. She owned a pale embroidered skirt. [1]

History Edit

She was rational to a fault, and disliked being disagreed with.[2]

As a novice, Carlinya made sure to commit one minor infraction per month so that she would not be thought to be stuck up.

She was an Accepted in the White Tower during the Aiel War when the Dragon was reborn.

When thinking of Carlinya, Siuan Sanche thought that "a great deal of logic and not much common sense: that was Carlinya."[3]

She held as much sway as most Sitters even before the White Tower schism.

She had no Warder, but she considered taking one towards the end of her life.

Activities Edit

Split from the Tower Edit

Carlinya was one of her Ajah representatives to escort the Amyrlin to Fal Dara.[4]

She allied herself with the rebel Aes Sedai; in fact, she was one of its earliest supporters and instigators, becoming one of its original six leaders, informally known as the Salidar Six

Later, when searching the Amyrlin's Study in Tel'aran'rhiod for information on what Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan had received, the Salidar Six were attacked by a stray nightmare of Trollocs. They were saved when Elayne Trakand and Siuan had to remind them about the dream not being real, in which case the nightmare faded away leaving only injury.

She brought Siuan and Leane Sharif into the Little Tower to be Healed from stilling by Nynaeve al'Meara.

She was with the rest of the Salidar Six in Tel'aran'rhiod when they summoned Egwene al'Vere to become Amyrlin Seat.

She swore an oath of fealty to Egwene and became a member of Egwene's Council. She was with Egwene and Gareth Bryne when they surveyed the area around Tar Valon.

The Tower reunited Edit

She was in council with Egwene's other advisers over Egwene's disappearance when Siuan arrived with the news that Egwene was still alive but prisoner inside the White Tower.

After the Tower was reunified, she was part of a plot to catch the Black Ajah in Tel'aran'riod. The Black Ajah got a preemptive strike on the White Tower Aes Sedai and their allies. Carlinya was one of the sisters killed at the beginning of the battle.

Viewing Edit

In Salidar, Min saw a black raven tattoo floating by Carlinya's face. It has since been confirmed by Maria Simons that as the raven is a symbol of the Dark One, this viewing represents her being killed by his servants. (fulfilled - her death in Tel'aran'rhiod at the hands of the Black Ajah)
