Desala Nevanche is an Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah.

Appearance Edit

Desala is a beautiful Cairhienin with large dark eyes and a voice like chimes.


She has quite a temper. The surest way to rouse it is to have harmed a child.

She despises wilders and purely hates women who pretend to be Aes Sedai.

She likes to dance with men, when given the chance. She was known to dance numerous men off their feet in a night.


Desala, along with Arebis, Melare, Zanica, and three other Aes Sedai, were involved in Leane Sharif's capture at Northharbor.

She flogs Leane when she sticks to claiming that she is Leane of the Green Ajah. She assumes she is lying and is just a wilder. Melare is afraid to leave Leane alone with her for long.

Desala was one of the Red sisters, along with Pevara Tazanovni, Javindhra Doraille, Jezrail, Melare, and Tarna Feir, sent to the Black Tower to put the proposition of Red sisters bonding Asha'man as Warders to Mazrim Taim. He has agreed to this. Desala was chosen because, unlike most Reds, she did not hate men.

Desala was Turned to the Shadow because Pevara affirmed that only herself among her group was able to escape the Turning.
