Doral Barran was the Wisdom of Emond's Field.


She was the oldest woman in Emond's Field. She had white hair and was frail, but still clear eyed. She is likely to have worn her hair braided in the Two Rivers' style.


She was the Wisdom of Emond's Field prior to Nynaeve al'Meara. She took Nynaeve on as apprentice when Nynaeve was only fourteen. Nynaeve says she taught her well.

Her first apprentice died of channeling fever. It is likely that Doral knew what this was because it explains why she fussed over Nyneave after Egwene made a suspiciously speedy recovery from breakbone fever.

She taught Nynaeve about Wisdoms who had been known to Listen to the Wind and said that Nynaeve was among the best at it.

When Mat was ten, Doral switched him for opening up an Illuminator's firework.

When spotted fever struck Emond's Field, Doral told people that covering their mouth and nose with a hankerchief soaked in brandy would help stave off the disease. It was a month after the last person fell sick before everyone stopped using the hankerchiefs.

Family NameEdit

Barran seems to be a common name in the Two Rivers, especially around Emond's field. Nynaeve says that a Wisdom seldom marries, so it is likely that the other Barrans mentioned are not her own offspring. The following other Barrans are mentioned:
