After the Foretelling that Gitara Moroso had that the Dragon had been reborn on the slopes of Dragonmount, Tamra Ospenya used the Accepted Moiraine Damodred and Siuan Sanche to deliver five messages to five sisters. These were to be Tamra Ospenya's Searchers for the Dragon Reborn.
All five of these women were people that Tamra thought she could trust to keep her secret about the Dragon being reborn. All of them had been Aes Sedai for well over a hundred years - presumably she had known them all almost from the time she was training as novice or Accepted. All of them also had a reputation for adhering very strictly to the law. This is important because, as Amyrlin, she can have the information Sealed to the Flame and these women are likely to take their duties very seriously and never betray the secret of the Dragon Reborn.
The details of the searchers and their fates are as follows:
|Meilyn Arganya||White Ajah||Died in her sleep|
|Kerene Nagashi||Green Ajah||Drowned in the River Alguenya|
|Valera Gorovni||Brown Ajah||Cause of death unknown|
|Ludice Daneen||Yellow Ajah||Cause of death unknown|
|Aisha Raveneos||Gray Ajah||Killed by bandits in Murandy|
All of the Searchers were killed by the Black Ajah. Meilyn was supposed to have died in her sleep, yet Siuan Sanche was under her bed and Meilyn never came to her room that night. Her cause of death was announced by Chesmal Emry, a known Black sister.
Her searchers were representative of all Ajahs except the Red and the Blue. The Red Ajah would have been excluded simply because Tamra would not have trusted them with information on a male channeler, even if it were the Dragon Reborn.
