EWoT: Nelavaire Demasiellin

Nelavaire Demasiellin is an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She was one of the Tower Aes Sedai captured at Dumai's Wells.

Appearance and Abilities

Nelavaire is not particularly strong in the One Power. Her level of strength is described by "The Wheel of Time Companion" as 28(16) which is a middle level in Aes Sedai hierarchy. With this level of strength she is unable to open alone a suitable gateway to Travel.

She is 5'2 tall, slim, wiry and whipcord tough.


"The Wheel of Time Companion" confirms her Cairhienin origin.

Nelavaire is 150 years old. She was born in 850 NE and went to the White Tower in 863 NE. After spending ten years as a novice and six years as Accepted, she was raised to the shawl in 879 NE.

She was born with the spark and was allowed to enroll at thirteen, despite ordinarily being too young, because it was beginning to manifest itself.


She remained loyal to the White Tower during the split following Siuan Sanche's deposing. She is one of the sisters who was captured after the Battle of Dumai's Wells, made da'tsang, and then swore fealty to Rand under Verin's compulsion. She has now bonded the Asha'man Naeff.

Naeff informs her of Nynaeve Healing his madness.

She probably fought in the Last Battle alongside Naeff. During the battle of the Field of Merrilor, Naeff is seen without Nelavaire, but she is presumed alive. Had she died, Naeff would have shown the effects of their Warder bond being broken.
