Affiliation The Kin

Derys Nermala is a member of the Kin in Ebou Dar.


She is slender with a pretty face. She is not very strong in the One Power, but at 41(29) is strong enough to become Aes Sedai. However, she was put out of the White Tower as a novice because she kept breaking the rules on taking male lovers.


When Elayne Trakand and Nynaeve al'Meara are deposited in the kin's house by Setalle Anan, Derys is being punished for wanting to marry and is acting as a maid.

She is one of the many Kin who have gone to live in the Caemlyn Palace. She finds Mirane Larinen's doll and links this to her being murdered.
