Carlys Ankarin is a lesser Andoran noble (LoC, Ch. 1). Her sign is paired White Leopards (CoT, Prologue).

Carlys has curly gray hair and an open face. Rand thinks that she has a devious mind (LoC, Ch. 1).

She is among the Andoran nobles who spend time with Rand. She is present when Rand is practicing the sword and praises his wisdom (LoC, Ch. 1). When word comes that Mazrim Taim has arrived at the Royal Palace, she and the other nobles leave on Rand's orders (LoC, Ch. 2).

She is oathsworn to Elenia Sarand, and supports her for the Lion Throne. Bashere spots her banner and many others about a league from Caemlyn, where Arymilla, Elenia, Naean, and Nasin are laying siege to the city (CoT, Prologue).

Carlys is not mentioned in "Knife of Dreams", but because of Arymilla's loss to Elayne, it can be assumed, if she is not dead, that she is either one of Elayne's prisoners or with Jarid Sarand, who was not captured and whom Elayne thinks will cause trouble for her (KoD, Ch. 33; Ch. 35).
