EWoT: Sareitha Tomares

Sareitha Tomares was an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah.


Sareitha was a dark Tairen with inquisitive brown eyes and a square face. She looks slightly older than Nynaeve.


Sareitha was not particularly strong in the One Power. Her level of strength is described by "The Wheel of Time Companion" as 26(14) which is a middle level in Aes Sedai hierarchy (not particularly weak, but also not remarkably strong). With this level of strength she was unable to open alone a suitable gateway to Travel.


Sareitha was 35 years old, she was born in 965 NE and went to the White Tower in 980 NE. After ten years as Novice and eight as Accepted she was raised to the shawl in the year 998 NE.

She was still too new to the shawl to have the ageless look, which she sometimes plainly wished for. She had a single Warder, Ned Yarman.


Ebou Dar

She was allied with the Salidar Aes Sedai.

She was sent to Ebou Dar as part of the embassy from Salidar to Tylin Quintara Mitsobar, the Queen of Altara. While inside to Tarasin Palace in Ebou Dar, she faced off against the White Tower embassy as to whether Matrim Cauthon should be returned to the White Tower.

When Elayne Trakand discovered the secret of the Kin, Sareitha acted as the Seat of Rebuke in Merilille Ceandevin's trial against Elayne.

She Traveled with the the rest of the group led by Nynaeve al'Meara and Elayne from Ebou Dar to the Kin's farm with the Bowl of the Winds. Sareitha made it known that she feels Aviendha's name should be in the book of novices. She felt the Kin cannot be trusted because some of them claim to be a hundred years older or more than any known living Aes Sedai. She didn’t believe that can be possible and so didn’t trust them. She then journeyed to Andor with the rest of the group.

To Caemlyn

She moved through the city with Elayne Trakand when Elayne was out in Caemlyn greeting the people. She was the only Aes Sedai who thought that Doilin Mellar acted as a hero by rescuing Lord Luan Norwelyn's men, even though Luan had not yet declared his support for Elayne. Perhaps this reflects her relative youth when compared with the other Aes Sedai.

In the Blue Reception Room in the Caemlyn Palace, Sareitha and Careane Fransi threatened the mercenary captains present about the power of the White Tower in order to help Elayne bring them under control.

Sareitha was killed by Chesmal Emry in Caemlyn when Elayne and the other Aes Sedai discovered them at Lady Shiaine's house on Full Moon Street.
