The Siuan Sanche wiki last edited by Spacey on 04/10/14 09:00PM View full history

Origin

Born in Tear, Siuan was raised as a fisherwoman. She was orphaned at a fairly young age, and sent to the White Tower at Tar Valon the moment her inborn ability to channel was discovered, around the age of fourteen. There, the Aes Sedai set about refining her coarse mannerisms and teaching her to read and write, as well as to channel and other things necessary to be an Aes Sedai.  

Creation

Siuan was created by Robert Jordan for his book series The Wheel Of Time, making her first appearance in the second book in the series, The Great Hunt. She made her first comic appearance in Wheel of Time: New Spring #1, written by Jordan and Chuck Dixon and illustrated by Mark Miller.

New Spring  

Newly arrived in the White Tower, Siuan makes the acquaintance of fellow Novice Moiraine Damodred. The two quickly grow close, even becoming pillow friends for a time. Their progress as Novices is rapid, and after only three years spent as Novice both she and Moiraine are raised Accepted. During the Aiel War, while the Battle of the Shining Walls is raging outside of Tar Valon, Siuan and Moiraine are attending the Amyrlin Seat, Tamra Ospenya and her Keeper of the Chronicles Gitara Moroso. Suddenly Gitara, who has the ability of Foretelling, announces that the Dragon has been reborn and dies from the strength of the Foretelling. She and Moiraine agreed to dedicate themselves to finding the child and guiding him. They are raised Aes Sedai three years after becoming Accepted, and after both select the Blue Ajah, they begin their quest to guide the Dragon Reborn to Tarmon Gai'don. Ten years after attaining the shawl, Siuan is raised to the Amyrlin Seat.    

Powers and Abilities

Siuan is a relatively powerful channeler. She has the Talent of being able to recognize ta'veren, perceiving a glow around them. She is very intelligent, and gifted with puzzles and riddles. She is also skilled at manipulation and political maneuvering. As a channeler, her lifespan is greatly expanded compared to regular humans. However, as an Aes Sedai and thus bound by the Three Oaths, her potential lifespan is shortened.
