Kiruna Nachiman was an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah.


Kiruna was statuesque and regal-looking, with dark eyes, arrogantly beautiful. As a member of the Royal House of Arafel, her queen-like demeanor was hardly surprising.

Strength and AbilitiesEdit

Kiruna was strong in the One Power, belonging to the upper tier in strength amongst modern Aes Sedai. This is confirmed when Merana Ambrey realizes her embassy from the Salidar Aes Sedai to Caemlyn are deferring to Kiruna because she is stronger than Merana. The fact that Merana, who is about equal in the One Power to Verin Mathwin, is noticeably weaker than Kiruna indicates that she is quite a strong channeler. She equals other Aes Sedai such as her companion Bera Harkin, Kwamesa, Anaiya and Myrelle Berengari. She was strong more than enough to open a gateway to travel.

This is confirmed by "The Wheel of Time Companion" where her level of strength is described as 14(2).


She was the sister of the King of Arafel, Paitar Nachiman. She had four Warders.

She and Bera were pillow friends, though both exclusively liked men after becoming Aes Sedai.


Kiruna sided with the Rebel Aes Sedai in the White Tower Schism[1].

Kiruna and Bera Harkin were sent by the Salidar Aes Sedai to make contact with Rand at the Aiel Waste. En route, they discovered that Rand was in Caemlyn and traveled there instead, joining up with the Salidar Aes Sedai embassy already there. She took over leadership from Merana Ambrey and dissolved the Salidar delegation, going with Bera to see if they could catch up with Rand in Cairhien.

Kiruna was one of the Aes Sedai who assisted in rescuing Rand at Dumai's Wells, and was forced to swear fealty to him after the battle[2].

Kiruna was made an apprentice to the Wise Ones in Cairhien. Cadsuane Melaidhrin arrived in Cairhien and found her and Bera and drilled them on all the events that had occurred recently. Among the Salidar Aes Sedai sworn to Rand, she had the hardest time adjusting to her new status.

She put Shalon din Togara Morning Tide to the question as to why she was found bound with Ailil Riatin.

During the Last Battle, while in a circle with Aviendha, Damer Flinn and Sarene Nemdahl, Kiruna and Faeldrin Harella were killed on the slopes of Shayol Ghul by Hessalam.
