In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Sarella is Oberyn's daughter whom he fathered on a ship captain from the Summer Islands. Her mother is the captain of the Feathered Kiss.

Sarella has her mother's looks of dark brown skin, curly black hair, and black eyes, though like all the Sand Snakes she has her father's widow's peak and the same shape to her eyes.

She is nearly twenty years old, and has a reputation for insatiable curiosity and "pushing in where she didn’t belong". While Obara and Nymeria inherited their father's martial prowess, and Tyene his skill with poisons, Sarella inherited Oberyn's keen intellect.

Sarella has not appeared yet on the novels or the released sample chapters, only mentioned. After Prince Doran hears what Obara, Nymeria and Tyene have in mind to avenge their father, he says that he hopes Sarella shows more common sense than her sisters. Currently she is outside of Dorne (it is not revealed where exactly), hence she is the only of the Sand Snakes who is not arrested, nor does she take any part in the missions that Doran assigns her elder sisters and Arianne to.

In the fourth novel, Sam Tarly meets at the Citadel a novice who introduces himself as Alleras aka the Sphinx, claiming that his father is Dornish and his mother is a Summer Islander trader. There is a fan theory that Alleras is in fact Sarella in disguise, since his name is Sarella spelled backwards, and based on what he tells about himself. If the theory is correct, it is unknown why Sarella is in Oldtown - whether she intends to become a maester (which is plausible in view of her thirst for knowledge), or is disguised as a part of a plan she has in store for settling score with the Lannisters.

Sarella hasn't been identified by name in the TV series, though Oberyn did mention that he had eight daughters, just as in the novels, which indicates that she probably also "exists" in the TV continuity, even if she has not yet been featured.
