Sarainya Vostovan is a Kinswoman and a Wise Woman in Ebou Dar. She is strikingly handsome with a husky voice. She is weak in the One Power (ACoS, Ch. 24).

Although she had been a noble in her native land of Arafel, before she joined the Kin, she wears her hair loose, so as not to attract attention (ACoS, Ch. 24).


  • Sarainya brings news to the Knitting Circle about the Kinswoman Callie. She has been found dead, killed by saidar (ACoS, Ch. 24).


"As usual, Sarainya swept right in before Reanne could say to admit her. In some ways, the strikingly handsome woman made Garenia appear supple, despite keeping the form of every rule exactly. Reanne was sure she would have worn her hair in braids and bells given the choice, and never mind how that would have looked with her red belt. But then, given the choice she would not have served even one turn with the belt." (Reanne thinking about Sarainya; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 24)

Neither strong enough to become Aes Sedai nor nearly old enough to stand very high among the Kin, she still stepped from the pack defiantly. "Why should we give them up to the White Tower? We have helped women run away, and rightly so! It is not part of the rules to give them back!" (Sarainya about Kirstian and Zarya; The Path of Daggers, Chapter 28)
