The full name was not recorded in the main series, but was given in the Wheel of Time Companion. Other information about the character is also included in the Companion, but we did not use it in the TarValon.Net Library.


Berowin is one of the Kin and a Wise Woman in Ebou Dar. She is a short and stout Cairhienin in her middle years. She is not very strong in the One Power, but she has a Talent in Shielding (ACoS, Ch. 23).

She secretly thinks she and the other Kinswomen can return to the White Tower one day to become Aes Sedai (ACoS, Ch. 24).


  • While Reanne is talking to Elayne and Nynaeve, Berowin bustles in to bring Garenia/Zarya Alkaese who has been gone for several years. When Elayne and Nynaeve talk when they are told not to, Berowin holds Nynaeve's shield (ACoS, Ch. 23).
  • She, Garenia and Reanne are disputing, when Sarainya is brought in to announce the news of Callie's death. Berowin does not believe she was killed with the One Power, since neither another Kinswomen nor an Aes Sedai would do such a thing (ACoS, Ch. 24).


"One day you will run right off a cliff before you see it under your feet." (Reanne to Berowin; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 23)

"You could burst a blood vessel if you keep at that," Berowin said, almost companionably. "We do not try to reach above our station, but skills are honed with time, and this was always nearly a Talent with me. I could hold one of the Forsaken." (Berowin to Nynaeve trying to break her shield; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 23)

Not all wore Ebou Dari clothes, but two had the red belts of Wise Women, and Elayne recognized Berowin, a stout little woman who normally showed a pride far greater than her strength in the Power. (Elayne about Berowin; The Path of Daggers, Chapter 4)
