Rank Mistress of the Ships

Nesta din Reas Two Moons was the Sea Folk Mistress of the Ships. She sailed aboard the Windrunner.


She had dark eyes, white hair and a thrusting jaw. She had started to put on a little weight, going from stocky to fat. She had six rings in each ear and numerous medallions on the chain connected to her nose.

She had an air of power; when she said "go", people went.


Her Windfinder was Renaile and her Master of the Blades was Baroc.

She met Nynaeve al'Meara and Elayne Trakand when they came aboard Windrunner while she was docked in Ebou Dar. She organized a successful bargain with Aes Sedai concerning the Bowl of the Winds that was greatly in favor of the Sea Folk.

She sent twenty Windfinders to the Tarasin Palace to assist with the Bowl of Winds.

When the Seanchan attacked Ebou Dar, Nesta's ship fought a delaying action to allow others to escape. She was taken and refused to accept their rule and was executed soon after; both she and Baroc were impaled. Neither screamed while on the stake. Their heads were placed on poles outside the gates for the crime of Rebellion.[1]
