Appearance and Personality Edit
Nyein has dark skin, hair, and eyes. Like other Sea Folk Aes Sedai, she doesn't wear any jewelry except for her Great Serpent ring.
Outwardly, she is a shy, withdrawn woman.
She is one of the Atha'an Miere and works in the White Tower Library, along with Aiden din Shimura and Zemaille din Amassa, the other Atha'an Miere Aes Sedai. They tend to stay on the upper levels of the library with the secret records.
At the time of the Dragon Reborn's birth, there were four Sea Folk Aes Sedai in the White Tower, and two of them were almost 300 years old. It is possible that Nyein is one of them.
As with the other Aes Sedai of Atha'an Miere origin, Nyein is relatively weak in the One Power.
She went to the White Tower at twenty-six and claimed she was eighteen. She slowed at nineteen.
