Title Amyrlin Seat
Rank Aes Sedai
Ajah Brown Ajah

Kirin Melway was an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah who was raised to the Amyrlin Seat in the year 922 NE.


Kirin held the position for twenty-eight years until her death in 950 NE. She was Aleis Romlin's successor and Noane Masadim's predecessor.[1]

Kirin was a quite weak Amyrlin, though not so lacking in influence and strength as her predecessor Aleis. In truth many of the things she did helped pave the way for some stronger Amyrlin to come after her.

Verin Mathwin last made a serious mistake during Kirin's reign. This was probably her choice betwen joining the Black Ajah or die. [2]

Vandene and Adeleas retired at some point durign Kirin's reign, most likely in the late 920s. [3]

At least two of the Kin, Zarya Alkaese and Sarainya Vostovan, ran away or were sent away during Kirin's reign. [4]
