Rashima Kerenmosa, born around 1150 AB, was an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah during the Trolloc Wars. She was raised to the Amyrlin Seat in 1251 AB, and held the position until her death in 1301 AB (LoC, Glossary).

Most probably because of her involvement in the Trolloc Wars, Rashima was known as the "Soldier Amyrlin". She personally led the armies of the White Tower and won many victories, examples being Kaisin Pass, the Soralle Step, Larapelle, Tel Norwin and Maighande.

It was at the Battle of Maighande, described to be "one of the greatest battles of the Trolloc Wars", where "the victory of humankind" began (TFoH, Glossary) that Rashima died (LoC, Glossary). She and her five Warders were found dead, surrounded by dead Trollocs and Myrddraal, and at least nine dead Dreadlords (LoC, Glossary).

According to Merana Ambrey, Rashima was one of the strongest Amyrlin Seats, both in power and in heart (LoC, Ch. 49).


"Merana sat very still. She prayed that the Hall had chosen an Amyrlin by now. Someone very strong, in the Power and in her heart. It would take another Deane, another Rashima, to make them once more what they had been. She prayed Alanna led them to al'Thor before he decided to acknowledge Elaida. Even another Rashima would not save them then." (Merana Ambrey; Lord of Chaos, Chapter 49).
