History: Zara was the youngest daughter of the successful merchant in a small town in Tear .Her father used to travel far because of business which kept him away from his family. Even when he is in town he was rarely home. Her mother died when she was about 5 years of age under mysterious circumstances. She was found hanging in her house by one of the servants without any note but since no other evidence was found everyone assumed her to have committed suicide even though no reason could be found otherwise. Since then she had been taken care of by her brother and her Governess Nana.
Zara is very fond of her brother and because of her quick hands her brother started teaching her how to handle knives since she was about 12 years of age and has attained good skill with that.
Life was going well for the Benaraiís when one night about a week back her father had come home with a beautiful woman. Zara did not like that woman who seemed to look up and down at her like a horse. Later in night when both the kids have been sent to sleep Zara had crept out of her bed and had over heard the conversation between the woman and their father which revealed to her that her father was a dark friend and that he meant to pledge both and her brother to the dark lord soon. Shocked out of her senses she had walked in daze back to Jeremís room and woken him up and told him about their father and what he means to do with them.
At that moment both her dad and the woman had walked in to her brotherís room and as she held them both immobile in air as their father berated them for having eavesdropped their conversation and then the woman had said that Zara is almost ready and that they can pledge them both tonight to the Great lord.
Fuelled by his fatherís betrayal and his fear for his beloved sister he had channeled (even though he did not realize it then) and had called the lightening which killed his father and knocked the Aes Sedai unconscious. Both of them had then fled after grabbing bare essentials and had hid in the woods near their town.
Jerem had gone in to the town in the morning and had seen people looking for him and his sister and he had known that they went sent by the Aes Sedai. Hunted by dark friends both of them had been on run away from their home town. On the third day of the run Jerem had developed high fever and had almost lost his consciousness and Zara had dragged him in to a small thicket away from the road. Not knowing who to trust but realizing that her brother needs help she now had decided to enter the near by town to seek help.
