Airavata is the 2nd-ranked sura in the Kinnara clan. She has yet to appear in the story, but she has been mentioned several times. Her son, Shess, is the one of the oldest living rakshasas, and she occasionally sends him out to do tasks for her.
Airavata sends her son Shess to Willarv in order to help Taksaka find out about the incident that took place in Ian's village. According to her, Tak is second place in the Vritra clan for poorest emotional control, so they should help him avoid causing more troubles for his clan. Shess assures Taksaka that she is truly worried about him.

It is unknown if Airavata agreed to take part in their plan.
