She is slim and elegant, with dark hair and blue eyes.
She is the one to announce to the other Aes Sedai that Tamra Ospenya had "died in her sleep".
When the Seanchan landed at Falme, she and Sheraine Caminelle were captured and made damane. Ryma was renamed Pura and trained harshly. When Egwene al'Vere was collared she met Ryma, who asked her to remember her real name. Bayle Domon witnessed the capture of Sheraine Caminelle, who screamed for Ryma to help her.
After Falme fell she was taken to Cantorin where the sul'dam Taisa holds her leash. Suroth questions her on how the White Tower controls the Dragon Reborn. Suroth does not believe that Pura does not know. Later she was brought back to the Westlands after Amadicia was taken. She is now completely broken.
