EWoT: Asne Zeramene

Asne Zeramene was an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah and secretly a member of the Black Ajah.[1] She was a part of Liandrin's group of Black sisters.

Appearance and Abilities

Asne was a typical Saldaean with a bold nose and tilted eyes. She dresses modestly for a Saldaea, but is as bold as any other. She is 5'4 tall.

She had a strength level of 18(6), strong enough to Travel.


She was from Saldaea.

She was Aes Sedai for over a hundred and thirty years. Born in 837 NE, she went to the Tower in 853 NE. After seven years as a novice and eight as Accepted, she is raised in 868 NE.

She had four Warders. Only one of them, Powl, was a Darkfriend, but she was confident the other three would believe what she told them and do anything she ordered.[2]


After fleeing the White Tower, she and the others in Liandrin's group went to Tear and worked for the Forsaken Be'lal. They tried, unsuccessfully, to trap Rand al'Thor just after he released Callandor. After this failure, she fled to Tanchico to try and steal the male a'dam from the Panarch's Palace. This Black Ajah plan was also foiled, by Elayne Trakand and Nynaeve al'Meara.

After Tanchico they went to Amadicia where Moghedien took charge of the group.[3] There Liandrin tried to take advantage on a wounded Moghedien, but the Forsaken was more able than her, leaving Liandrin severely punished, demoted and shielded permanently. Upon leaving Liandrin's group, Moghedien placed Eldrith in charge, as the strongest in the One Power of the remaining sisters.

She then traveled to Samara with Chesmal Emry, Eldrith Jhondar, and Temaile Kinderode after Moghedien ordered Temaile to Ghealdan. When Eldrith Jhondar's Warder Kennit arrived, they fled to Caemlyn.[2] Asne had found the Balefire rod which Moghedien had hidden, and brought it with her.

After fleeing Samara, Asne stopped masking her Warder bond so that they could find her. She intended to keep the presence of her Warders a secret, holding them in reserve in case she needed protection.[2]

She walked in on Elayne, Vandene Namelle, Sareitha Tomares, and Careane Fransi trying to arrest Mili Skane, Falion Bhoda, and Marillin Gemalphin. To overcome them Asne used a terangreal that she had found hidden in Moghedien bedroom in Amadicia. She used it to stun all the opponents.

Vandene, Sareitha, and Careane were all killed and Elayne was taken captive. Working with Chesmal, Falion Bhoda, Temaile, Marillin Gemalphin, Eldrith, and Lady Shiaine, Asne attempted to try and flee from Caemlyn with Elayne. Birgitte immediately organized a rescue expedition. Asne opened their way using a terangreal that produced balefire. In front of it Birgitte persuaded the Windfinders to intervene and so Asne was killed by lightning thrown by a circle led by Chanelle.
