General Information

Zerah Dacan is an Aes Sedai of the White Ajah. She is definitely not Black Ajah (TPoD, Ch. 26).

Zerah has black hair, big, blue eyes and a prideful air about her. According to Seaine, she is "properly self-possessed." (TPoD, Ch. 26).

Zerah sided with the Salidar Aes Sedai when the White Tower split. However, she was sent back to the Tower to spread dissent among the sisters. She, along with nine others, did this by telling sisters that the Red Ajah had set Logain up as a false Dragon. (TPoD, Ch. 26)

When Seaine and Pevara searched for the Black Ajah, they thought that Zerah was Black. They forced her to swear to obey them on the Oath Rod and then asked her if she was Black. Zerah denied it but in the process she admitted that she was a Salidar spy. Pevara ordered her not to mention the rumors about Logain again and forced her to tell them about the other nine Salidar moles (TPoD, Ch. 26). Zerah was then forced to help hunt the Black Ajah (WH, Prologue).


  • Zerah has worn the shawl for less than fifty years (TPoD, Ch. 26).
  • Zerah's dresses have a lot of embroidery for a White (TPoD, Ch. 26).
  • Zerah truly believes that the Red Ajah set Logain up as a false Dragon (TPoD, Ch. 26).


"Zerah did not hesitate in going down. Logically, she had nothing to fear from a Sitter, a White Sitter. Logically, Seaine would tell her what she wanted when the time was ripe, and it would be nothing that she could not do." (The Path of Daggers, Chapter 26)

"I should not be subjected to this... but I will re-swear all of the Oaths, if that's what it needs to satisfy you. And I will demand an apology from you both, afterward." Zerah to Seaine and Pevara (The Path of Daggers, Chapter 26)
