Sarella Sand is one of the famous Sand Snakes, the bastard children of Oberyn Martell. She is nearly twenty years old, and has a reputation for insatiable curiosity and "pushing in where she didn’t belong". Her mother is from the Summer Islands and the captain of the Feathered Kiss.
A Feast for Crows
When Doran Martell orders Areo Hotah to take the Sand Snakes into captivity, Sarella is outside of Dorne. Doran says that he prays she will show more sense than her sisters, and tells Areo to "leave her to her game".
It is widely believed that Sarella Sand is in disguise in Oldtown as the novice Alleras, studying for a maester's chain. The name Alleras is Sarella backwards, and Alleras ("the Sphinx") bears a resemblance to Oberyn Martell. Furthermore, disguising herself as a man to learn the secrets of the maesters would be in keeping with what is known of Sarella's character.
