Family NameEdit

Barran seems to be a common name in the Two Rivers, especially around Emond's field. The following other Barrans are mentioned:


She is one of the girls that Verin Mathwin and Alanna Mosvani plan on taking to the White Tower to become novices. They only get as far as Caemlyn before hearing rumors about the White Tower Schism. She and the other girls stay with the Aes Sedai at an inn called Culain's Hound. Rand sees her there when he calls on Verin.

She and the other potential novices are taken to Salidar by Valinde Nathenos, Berenecia Morsad, Demira Eriff and Kairen Stang. They meet the rebels in Murandy. On arrival, they are enrolled as novices and later follow the Aes Sedai to Tar Valon.
