EWoT: Varuna Morrigan

For the similarly named Andoran queen, see Morrigan.

Varuna Morrigan was an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah who was raised to the Amyrlin Seat in the year 638 NE. She served as the Amyrlin from 638 NE until 681 NE.[1]


Varuna held the position for forty-three years until her death in 681 NE. She was Gerra Kishar's successor and Cemaile Sorenthaine's predecessor.[2]

Varuna was an Amyrlin of average strength and influence. As a Green she focused on the Borderlands, feeling that the battle there against Shadowspawn was more important than any meddling with nations farther south. This effectively reduced the Tower's power and influence to the south.

Her focus on the Borderlands and external matters also left the Hall largely in control of the White Tower and the Aes Sedai.

During her reign, the Great Winter War was fought between Andor and Cairhien.

One of the Kin Elders, Ivara, went to the Tower during her time on the Seat and Gitara Moroso was born also during this time.[3]
