Valera was short and plump. She always smiles. (NS, Ch. 7)


978 NE: Tamra summons Valera to ask her to search for the boychild (NS, Ch. 7).

979 NE: Valera is killed by the Black Ajah (NS, Ch. 18).


  • Valera had a reputation of being for strict adherence to the law, this was what linked her to the other searchers (NS, Ch. 7).

"Valera Gorovni, a plump little Brown who always wore a smile and seemed to be bustling even while standing still." (Moiraine about Valera; New Spring, Chapter 7)

"Meilyn finally departed the Tower, and then Kerene, followed in turn by Aisha, Ludice and Valera, but Moiraine's relief that the search was under way at last was tempered by frustration at being kept out of it." (Moiraine about the search for the boychild; New Spring, Chapter 14)
