Nasin was the High Seat of house Caeren, one of the nineteen houses powerful enough that they have a say in any succession and the single most powerful house in Andor (CoT, Ch. 15). He is considered scrawny, and is goat faced with thin white hair (TFoH, Ch. 19; KoD, Ch. 17). Though he is the High Seat, he often seemed addled (LoC, Ch. 1).


  • After Gaebril is deposed, he becomes one of Rand's sycophants (LoC, Ch. 1).
  • He accepts Sylvase being kept by Arymilla to prevent his removal as High Seat (KoD, Ch. 17).
  • He suffers a seizure during the final battle for Caemlyn and Sylvase replaces him as high seat (KoD, Ch. 33).


  • He would tumble any woman he had the chance to.
  • He would sometimes wear a flower in his hair (LoC, Ch. 1) and robes so heavily embroidered they could be mistaken for a woman's (KoD, Ch. 17).


His wife, Miedelle, died thirty years ago (CoT, Ch. 15).

He seems half convinced Arymilla is his favourite daughter (CoT, Ch. 15).

He keeps a tight watch on his granddaughter Sylvase (CoT, Ch. 15).

He believed Elenia was his betrothed and threatens to kill Jarid to prevent him bothering her (CoT, Ch. 15).


"Remember, you will be High Seat of Caeren after I'm gone. After I'm gone you will be high seat" (To Sylvaese; Knife of Dreams, Chapter 17).
