Zerah is 5'5½" tall, and slim. She has black shoulder-length hair and large blue eyes. She is cool and self-possessed and moves gracefully.
Strength and Abilities Edit
"The Wheel of Time Companion" lists her strength as 19(7); strong enough to Travel.
Zerah comes from a wealthy family in Mayene. She was born in 928 NE and went to the White Tower in 943 NE. After spending seven years as a novice and eight years as Accepted, Zerah was raised to the shawl in 958 NE. She was allied with the rebel Aes Sedai during the White Tower schism.
She has no Warder.
Zerah, as well as nine other sisters, was sent by the Salidar Aes Sedai to the White Tower to spy, and to spread the rumor that the Red Ajah set Logain Ablar up as a false Dragon. Unfortunately, Pevara Tazanovni and Seaine Herimon suspected her of being Black Ajah and questioned her with the Oath Rod, causing her to unwillingly betray her allegiance to the Salidar Aes Sedai, as well as the names of the other spies. She was also forced to swear an oath of obedience to Pevara and Seaine.
She is now part of the group of sisters who are hunting the Black Ajah in the White Tower.
"The Wheel of Time Companion" reveals that Egwene successfully convinced Seaine and the others to remove Zerah's oath of obedience.
