EWoT: Gerra Kishar

Gerra Kishar was an Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah who was raised to the Amyrlin Seat in 601 NE.[1]


Gerra held the position for thirty-seven years until her death in 638 NE. She was the successor of Shein Chunla, and Varuna Morrigan's predecessor.[1]

She was later on considered an Amyrlin as successful as Sereille Bagand, one of the greatest Amyrlins, but instead of iron will, Gerra used political prowess to turn the different groups of the Hall of the Tower against each other.

She was elected partly because her mild personality was so much in contrast to her predecessor, that many Sitters thought to be able to control her, and partly because Gerra was among the ringleders of the coup that topped Shein Chunla, which should have given the others some clue to how biddable she would be.

Anyway she used her skills as a negotiator and mediator to play factions off against each other, and an attempted coup against her was crushed utterly.

Egwene al'Vere states centuries later that she wants to be just like Gerra. [2]
