Strength and Abilities
Sarainya is weak in the One Power. Her strength is 46(34), one level below the minimum to test for Aes Sedai. It is around the same level as Alise, Dimana or Caiden, but unlike them, she would be able to become Accepted, but never beyond that. The Wheel of Time Companion reveals that she was raised to Accepted only for political reasons, as she came from a great noble family.
Sarainya is 76 years old, she was born in 924 NE, went to the Tower in 940 NE and was a novice for ten years. In 950 NE she was raised Accepted for political reasons and after that was sent away from the White Tower. It is not clear why she chose to join the Kin instead of returning to her noble family.
She, along with a number of other Kin, were starting to develop a backbone and she had started to question Aes Sedai decisions.
