An [Aes Sedai] of the [Yellow Ajah]. Her [Warder|Warder] is [Sarin Hoigan]. 

! Possible Spoilers
She joined with the [Salidar Aes Sedai]. 

! Physical Description

She is very short. ([TFoH,Ch50]) (Short enough to make [Sarin Hoigan] seem tall, she always minded [Romanda|Romanda Cassin] of a large-eyed sparrow. There was nothing tiny about her powers of observation or her intellect, however. She had been a natural choice for the council the [Ajahs|Aes Sedai] created to try keeping an eye on [Egwene|Egwene alVere], and it was certainly no fault of hers that said council had had little or no restraining effect on the woman.) ([KoD,Ch23])
