Rank Windfinder

Senine din Ryal is a Sea Folk Windfinder.


She has a weathered face with gray through her hair. She now wears only six earrings, but some more holes in her ears are signs of her former high ranking.

Strength and Abilities

She has a strength level of 19(7). This is enough to open alone a Gateway for Traveling.


Senine now is among the low ranking Windfinders, because she serves on a soarer, but used to be the Windfinder of one of the former Mistress of the Ships, and also to many Wavemistresses; in fact Senine is more than five hundred years old.

As it is the rule among the Sea Folk after one Wavemistress died, if her Windfinder does not find another Wavemistress to need her service, she is required to move down to the lowest level in a new vessel and works up back up. So Senine became the Windfinder to the Sailmistress of a very small soarer.


Because of her relative strength Senine was selected in Ebou Dar among the twenty strongest Windfinders to go to use the Bowl of the Winds and so she traveled to the Kin's Farm with the others.

Senine did not link in the circle that worked the Bowl, because stronger channelers were available. Nevertheless, she was consulted during the use.

After the Seanchan conquest of Ebou Dar she and all the others channelers in the Farm fled to Andor.

She is one of the Windfinders being tutored by Aes Sedai in Caemlyn.

When Elayne Trakand is captured by the Black Ajah Birgitte Silverbow manages to convince Chanelle din Seran White Shark and the rest of the Sea Folk Windfinders that without Elayne there is no bargain. They Travel to the area where the Black Ajah are riding a wagon with Elayne inside. The strike force ride towards the wagon, but are decimated by Balefire from Asne Zeramene. Birgitte finally convinces the Windfinders to actively attack the Black Ajah. The Windfinders all link with Chanelle in control and attack the wagon with lightning, killing Asne in the process. They shield all the remaining Black Ajah members so they can be taken captive by Elayne's troops.
