The full name was not recorded in the main series, but was given in the Wheel of Time Companion. Other information about the character is also included in the Companion, but we did not use it in the TarValon.Net Library.

Nisain a'Cowel is an Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She sided with the Salidar Aes Sedai when the Tower splits.

Nisain was one of six sisters chosen to Travel to Shadar Logoth to discover what the large amount of channeling was (the cleansing of saidin). They then returned to the rebel camp and reported their findings to the Hall. Since Nisain was the best at reading residues, she gave half the report.

She is gangly and has blue eyes and a strong chin. She is from Murandy.
