Samalin Naerodea is an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah and a Sitter in the Salidar Hall.

Appearance and Abilities Edit

Samalin is a fox-faced Murandian with a mannish stride. [1] Despite being sharp-faced she has a surprising sense of humour and a bright, clear laugh.

Being a Sitter in the Hall for a while means that Samalin is also a high-ranking sister and a strong channeller by Aes Sedai standards. Thus she has the strength needed to use the travel weave.

This is not confirmed by "The Wheel of Time Companion" where her level of strength is described only as 22(10). But this is probably a mistake because nine levels below the strongest Sitters would mean that Samalin was a too weak Sitter compared to them.

Samalin's true level of strength can be guessed by the time she spent in training, a total of eleven years, roughly the same or little less than Sarene Nemdahl, Verin Mathwin, Alanna Mosvani or Merana Ambrey that are between levels 17(5) and 18(6), in fact the time spent in training usually reflects the strength of an Aes Sedai.


Samalin is Murandian and 65 years old; she was born in the year 935 NE and went to the White Tower in 952 NE. After spending six years as novice and five as Accepted she was raised to the shawl in the year 963 NE.

Samalin has only one Warder, to whom she is married, though that is not widely known.

Samalin was elected Sitter for the Green in Salidar although she was young for it.

Activities Edit

She is one of the Aes Sedai in the Little Tower who rejects Egwene al'Vere as Amyrlin in the first vote. But she stood immediately for Egwene the second time.

She votes YES on the Rebel Aes Sedai declaring war on Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan.

She votes YES in the Rebel Hall of the Tower, this time for an alliance with the Black Tower.

At Lelaine Akashi's emergency meeting of the Hall, she stands to accept the offer from the Dragon Reborn of bonding forty-seven Asha'man.

She was unseated upon the reunification of the White Tower, her seat being taken either by its previous holder, Faiselle Darone, or the newly elected Green Sitter, Farnah Sadaou.

It is presumed that she fought in and survived the Last Battle.
