An Ajah of the Aes Sedai. The red Ajah bends its energies to finding men who can channel and gentling them. Although women cannot detect saidin, they can read the residue of the weaves and that is their primary tool for tracking. Galina Casban, the head of the Red Ajah, is called the Highest.


After Galina Casban's disappearance Tsutama Rath is elected Highest. When the White Tower split, all of the Red Ajah remained loyal to the Tower.

  1. Tor Website Q&A
    1. Jordan states, "There are various ways that the effects of male channeling can be found, weaves that find the resonance of the residues of saidin. Check in Crossroads of Twilight. They do not detect the actual weaves, though, only the residues left after the weave is released. After that, it becomes a matter of detective work. Though perhaps stalking a leopard might be a better metaphor. As for Cadsuane, she has a few more tools at her disposal than other Aes Sedai, the reason for her extremely high success rate. Check Winter's Heart, and a few earlier mentions, for this one."
