Author: Kyria d'Oreyn The full name was not recorded in the main series, but was given in the Wheel of Time Companion. Other information about the character is also included in the Companion, but we did not use it in the TarValon.Net Library.


Asra is a Kinswoman from Arad Doman. She wore the red belt of a Wise Woman in Ebou Dar. She looks to be no older than Nynaeve and her copper skin proves her origin. She has a strong Talent for Healing, although she is not strong enough in the One Power to be tested for Accepted (LoC, Ch. 52).


  • She and some other Kinswomen scout the area around Caemlyn for loyal soldiers and find Charlz Guybon just as he is considering fighting his way to the gates. They create a gateway to take him and his soldiers to the Royal Palace. She becomes angry when he asks her if she is Aes Sedai (KoD, Ch. 13).


"Elayne gave a start as, far from tenderly wiping the blood from his lips, the woman pulled what seemed to be a handful of herbs from her pouch and hurriedly thrust some of them into the man's mouth. Before her hand left his face, the glow of saidar surrounded her, and she began to weave the flows of Healing more deftly than Elayne could have done." (Elayne about Asra; Lord of Chaos, Chapter 52)
