Tamarla is one of the Kin based in Ebou Dar.


She has long streaks of white in her dark hair. She is bone-lean with olive skin and dark eyes.


Her level of strength is 47(35), a very low level, two levels below the minimum to be tested for the shawl.


She was originally from Altara and she is a member of the Knitting Circle.

She is 319 years old, in fact she was born in 681 NE. She went to the White Tower in 696 NE and after spending two years as Novice she was put out because she had reached her potential and was not strong enough to be tested as Accepted.


She is insulted that the Aes Sedai think the Kin are lying about their numbers. Sareitha Tomares calls her a liar to her face.

She is among the Kin who accompany Elayne Trakand and Nynaeve al'Meara to the Rahad to find the Bowl of the Winds. She only just survives when the gholam attacks. Nynaeve seems to find her injuries difficult to Heal, but Sumeko Karistovan steps in and saves her, using techniques even Nynaeve does not know. After Tamarla is Healed she takes care of Janira's dead body.

Tamarla has respect for Matrim Cauthon .

She Travels with the the rest of the group led by Nynaeve and Elayne from Ebou Dar to the Kin's farm with the Bowl of the Winds.

She is one of the Kin who is ready to come to blows with the Sea Folk Windfinders and embraces the Source ready for a fight.
