Yarin Maeldan is a stork-like man with a long nose. Judging by his speech, he is not an Illianer, like his captain.
He informs Domon on Carn's death. They leave Illian and sail for Ebou Dar. While sailing, they are boarded by Egeanin Tamarath and her crew and forced to sail into Falme. Later, Domon promises to take Nynaeve al'Meara out of Falme. Yarin and Domon are in port ready to sail the Spray when lightning begins to light up in the sky and the sea goes mad. Yarin says that they have to sail immediatly, but Domon waits for as long as he can before sailing away without Nynaeve. It is unknown what has happend to Yarin after Bayle was made da'covale, however his death would be something about which Domon would have spoken.
