Aeldra is lean with short white hair and coppery skin.
Her name and appearance may hint at a Domani origin.
She was raised after Gitara Moroso died.
She caught Moiraine Damodred looking in on the Amyrlin's Study door when trying figure out who else Tamra had picked to search for the Dragon Reborn. She gently turns Moiraine away, attributing her actions to grief over her uncles' deaths, but does warn her she will have to take notice if she catches her again.
She was in the testing room to welcome Moiraine and Siuan Sanche to the Blue Ajah. She used her position as Keeper to be the sixth sister to welcome/kiss Moiraine and Siuan making her the one to receive hand-baked pies from the new sisters. Unfortunately, Siuan's fish-pie did not suit her, and since Moiraine had always had her food cooked for her, neither of the pies made her feel very well. She had to be Healed after eating the pies. Anaiya found this some sort of justice, since she considered it unjust of Aeldra to use her position in the way she did.
