"The Wheel of Time Companion" describes Covarla's strength level as 21(9), which can be just enough to open alone a Gateway for Traveling, Covarla has learned this weave from Katerine.


She has been Aes Sedai as long as Elaida a'Roihan had been alive[1]. She is strong enough to Travel [2]. She was born in 919 NE and went to the Tower in 936 NE. She spent nine years as a novice and five as Accepted. She was raised in 950 NE.


She returned to the White Tower from the debacle of Dumai's Wells[3] in the early hours of the morning to give Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan the bad news that Rand al'Thor had escaped[1].

She stands highest among the twelve sisters that initially returned back to Tar Valon. Elaida has her and her group stay away from the White Tower to hide her secrets and stay in the village of Dorlan[1].

Later, Tarna Feir arrives in Dorlan and displaces Covarla as leader of the group. Some time after also Katerine Alruddin arrives in Dorlan displacing Tarna; Katerine and Tarna leave the village and are able to reach Tar Valon, passing trough the besieging army, so Covarla is again in charge of the group[4].

When an embassy from the White Tower arrives in Dorlan leaded by Narenwin Barda, Covarla bars Gawyn Trakand's entrance into the meeting with threats of replacing him as captain of the Younglings. Narewin takes charge of the group and explains that Elaida ordered the sisters in Dorlan and the Younglings to start a guerilla against the rebel army that is occupied in the siege of Tar Valon[4][5].
