Serana is a village in Tarabon that lies halfway between Elmora and the border of Amadicia. It is a halfway point for merchant trains traveling between Tanchico and Amador, and has many inns. It is located about 400 miles south of Tarabon's border with Almoth Plain.
In the spring of 1000 NE, a mixed group of Dragonsworn, Taraboner rebels, and troops from Arad Doman under General Rodel Ituralde launched a suprise attack on a Seanchan encampment next to the village. They destroyed it as part of Ituralde's plan to provoke the Seanchan into assaulting Arad Doman and falling into a trap.
