General

Sheraine Caminelle was once an Aes Sedai. However, she was captured by the Seanchan and collared. The sul'dam gave her a new name, Mylen (WH, Ch. 14).

Sheraine and her Warder were in Falme when the Seanchan ambushed them. Her Warder was killed while she was shielded and made damane (TGH, Ch. 43). Sheraine did not cooperate with the sul'dam holding her, refusing to eat and drink (WH, Ch. 14). She was later taken to Seanchan, where she was bought by Tuon. All of the der'sul'dam expected her to die but Tuon persevered and trained her. Sheraine became the perfect damane and is Tuon's special pride. She was chosen to be one of the six damane to accompany Tuon back across the Aryth Ocean (WH, Ch. 14). Melitene chose her to be one of the damane involved in rescuing Tuon after her kidnapping (CoT, Ch. 4).

Sheraine is very short and a trifle plump. She is pale and has dark hair. From this description it seems likely that Sheraine is Cairhienin (WH, Ch. 14). She is pretty (TGH, Ch. 43).
