Adine is a plump Andoran with blue eyes and short black hair.
Adine is relatively weak in the One Power. Her level of strength is described by "The Wheel of Time Companion" as 34(22) which is a quite low level in Aes Sedai hierarchy.
She becomes close friends with Siuan Sanche and Moiraine Damodred just after they are raised to the shawl. She was also friends with Leane Sharif, who introduced them to one another. Moiraine places a level of trust in her, and thinks she is not at all arrogant "for an Andoran".
She receives reports on behalf of Moiraine from her agents, including Nieda Sidoro.
She has allied herself with the Salidar Aes Sedai during the split with the White Tower. She taught novice classes.
