Aisling Noon is an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She sided with Elaida when the Tower split (KoD, Ch. 20).

She was an advisor to King Easar of Shienar. When she learned that the White Tower had split, Aisling left the Borderlands and traveled to Tar Valon (TPoD, Prologue). She was then sent to the Black Tower with Toveine in attempt to destroy it. However, Malevin captured her and he bonded her against her will (KoD, Ch. 20).

Aisling is tall (NS, Ch. 3). She is fierce-eyed (KoD, Ch. 20).


  • 978 NE: As an Accepted, Aisling leaves the Tower to collect the names of newborn children for the bounty (NS, Ch. 3).
  • 999 NE: Aisling disappears from Shienar when she learns that the White Tower has split (TPoD, Prologue).
  • 1000 NE: Aisling travels to the Black Tower with Toveine. She is captured and bonded by Malevin (KoD, Ch. 20).
  • 1000 NE: Aisling and the other Aes Sedai follow Rand to Lady Deirdru's manor to prevent any further attack on him (KoD, Ch. 27).


  • Aisling was one of the Tuatha'an and so is a rarity in the White Tower; very few Tinker girls want to become Aes Sedai (NS, Ch. 3).
  • When she was learning to become Aes Sedai, Aisling applied herself with great determination (NS, Ch. 3).
  • Moiraine believed that Aisling would earn the shawl after four years as an Accepted (NS, Ch. 3).
  • Aisling peppers her speech with Borderland oaths rude enough to make Lan wince (KoD, Ch. 20).


Aisling applied herself with just as much determination as Zemaille, and with more success. She had earned the ring in five years, in the same year as Moiraine and Siuan, and Moiraine thought she might test for the shawl in another year, perhaps less. (Moiraine about Aisling; New Spring, Chapter 3).

Save for Paitar's, their White Tower advisors had all left at news of the troubles in the Tower, her own Nianh and Easar's Aisling vanishing without a trace. (Ethenielle about the rulers of the Borderlands and their Aes Sedai advisors; The Path of Daggers, Prologue)
