—Kairen Stang, Lord of Chaos
She was described as being beautiful, with an oval face and icy blue eyes.
Her strength is given as 18(6) in the Wheel of Time Companion, meaning she is quite a high-ranking Aes Sedai. She is strong enough to use Traveling on her own.
She was born in 937 NE and became a novice at age 15. She spent 8 years as a novice and 8 as an Accepted and she was raised to the shawl in the year 952 NE.
She had one Warder, Llyw.
She was one of the few Aes Sedai among the rebels that has the ability to create Cuendillar. She finds her slow progress very frustrating.
Egwene notes she has been spending a lot of time with Lelaine Akashi lately.
She was murdered by Aran'gar, who broke her neck with saidin. Kairen is survived by her Warder, Llyw, whose bond was passed to Myrelle Berengari. She was murdered for the same reason Anaiya was; unless incapacitated, they could have exposed "Halima's" lie to have been the secretary of Cabriana.
Her death meant that turning the Southharbor chain to cuendillar fell to the novice, Bodewhin Cauthon, though Egwene decided to go herself instead.
