Rosil is an Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah.


She is slender and lanky, with a long neck.[1]


She was the Mistress of Novices under Egwene al'Vere.

She is known for her skills in helping Aes Sedai grieve the death of a Warder. [2]


Rosil is one of three Yellow sisters who accepts Nynaeve al'Meara as a full sister before she is actually raised. She explains to Nynaeve that she has been so welcoming because she is impressed with how effective Nynaeve's new weaves are.

She leads Nynaeve to her test to become Aes Sedai, where she allows Nynaeve to break custom by allowing her to leave her Great Serpent ring on the finger of her choosing and by allowing her to speak. When Nynaeve finishes her raising test and returns from the ter'angreal, Rosil Heals her. She then stands aside as the Sitters debate whether Nynaeve actually passed the test, and concludes the ceremony as tradition dictates when they have made their decision.

After a meeting of the Hall, Egwene comments that while Rosil has been lenient with her so far, she would never allow Accepted being put in danger.

The Last Battle

Rosil is the Aes Sedai in charge of the Healers stationed in Mayene during the Last Battle. [3]

After the death of the Amyrlin Seat she served, it is likely that her position has been succeeded by whoever has been chosen in her stead in accordance with Cadsuane Melaidhrin's raising to the Seat.
