Natasia is an Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah from Saldaea. She is slim, and as is common among Saldaean's, has dark tilted eyes and high cheekbones (NS, Ch. 12).

Moiraine describes Natasia as a lenient teacher (NS, Ch. 12). She has a habit of lecturing pedantically (NS, Ch. 14).


  • Natasia is one of the Aes Sedai who teaches Moiraine and Siuan the Aes Sedai weaves (NS, Ch. 14).


  • Almost every flat surface in Natasia's rooms is covered with figurines, small carvings and painted miniatures (NS, Ch. 14).


"The mind must be as still as an unruffled pond throughout. Focusing on a point behind your navel, in the center of your body, you begin to breathe at an unvarying pace, but not as normally. Each inhalation must take exactly the same length of time, and each exhalation, and between, for that same space, you do not breathe. In time, that will come quite naturally. Breathing so, focused so, soon your mind becomes detached from the outer world, no longer acknowledging heat or cold. You might walk naked in a blizzard or across a desert without shivering or sweating. Frostbite and sunburn would present difficulties, after a time. Only the mind is truly distracted, the body much less so." (Natasia to Moiraine and Siuan; NS, Ch. 14)
