Vanora was Jaichim Carridin's favorite sister. She was good-natured and very skilled with horses (ACoS, Ch. 15).

She liked to ride alone in the forest beyond Carmera (TSR, Ch. 38).

Jaichim Carridin told Liandrin where Vanora could be found in the hope that he would be given more time to kill Rand (TSR, Ch. 38).

She was given to Fades and Trollocs by Sammael as punishment for Carridin's failures (ACoS, Ch. 15).


"'I saw your sister Vanora recently. She did not look well, at first. Screaming and weeping, twitching constantly and pulling at her hair. Women do suffer worse than men from the attentions of Myrddraal, but even Myrddraal must find their pleasures somewhere. Don't worry that she suffered too long. The Trollocs are always hungry.' The smile faded; his voice was stone. 'Those who disobey can find themselves over a cookfire, too. Vanora seemed to be smiling, Carridin. Do you think you would smile, turning on a spit?'
Carridin swallowed in spite of himself, and quelled a pang for Vanora, with her ready laugh and her skill with horses, daring to gallop where others feared to walk. She had been his favorite sister, yet she was dead and he was not. If there were any mercies in the world, she had not learned why." (Sammael to Carridin; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 15)
