Aes Sedai- the basics

If you are looking to become an Aes Sedai on the MUD, check out the guild page instead, though this page also has a bit of information.

This article deals mostly with the present day Aes Sedai, the Age of Legends Aes Sedai should be added to perhaps a different section.

In the Old Tongue, Aes Sedai means 'Servants of All'. In the Age of Legends, the Aes Sedai was composed of both women and men, and much more common than in the present time of both the MUD and the series.

In the present-time MUD, Aes Sedai are almost identical in purpose and direction to those in the books. Meddling- or helping out- the politics of countries, and having a large hand in quite a few of the events happening around, as well as obligatorily taking down the male channelers that pop up every once in a while.

Aes Sedai are female channelers, those who can channel Saidar to do things.

The Ajahs

As most people, even commoners, know, there are several different Ajahs in the White Tower. The exact details, however, are not so widely known. There are seven Ajahs in the White Tower, those are the Red Ajah, the Brown Ajah, the Blue Ajah, the Green Ajah, the Gray Ajah, the Yellow Ajah, and the White Ajah.

Traditionally, every sister chooses an Ajah immediately after being raised beyond the rank of Accepted. The process of entering the Ajahs are mostly unknown to outsiders.

Becoming Aes Sedai

The road to becoming Aes Sedai is further detailed at the White Tower Page

A brief summary would be simply that you start as novice, move onto accepted, and go to Aes Sedai.

Traditionally the White Tower only accepts girls for training who are between sixteen and eighteen years old, though the rules are bent sometimes for a novice of great potential. Becoming a novice is known as being "put in white", because they are held to a strict dress code: white dresses, stockings, shoes, and even hair ribbons.

Novices are latent or inborn channelers, sometimes those who have already started channeling but more often those who can only be taught to channel.

Accepted are pretty much just the next rung up from novices, they can give certain lessons, and have more privileges than the novices, as well as knowing more about channeling in general.

Aes Sedai are the final product, as it were. They have to abide by three laws- 1. Speak no word that is not true 2. Make no weapon for one man to kill another 3. Never use the One Power as a weapon, except

  • Against Shadowspawn (Darkfriends also qualify),
  • To save her own life, or her Warder's, or the life of another sister

They teach, or leave, or do things the Amrylin Seat asks/tells them- in short, go around and be mysterious and all.

Reception of Aes Sedai by the World outside

Admittedly not always welcomed by open arms- sometimes seen as meddling, sometimes just over-powerful, none could argue that when they set to do something they mostly always get their way. Tear in particular dislikes channeling, and it is said that all Tairens of all classes distrust the One Power. The Borderlands, on the other hand, have mostly accepted and welcomed Aes Sedai. Some other places think that Aes Sedai are a myth, and in others they are simply treated with respect, albeit wary respect.
