She has dark hair, braided in the Taraboner style, a broad face, a wide mouth, a beak of a nose, and the typical ageless Aes Sedai look. She has a stocky build.
Annoura was not very strong in the One Power. Her level of strength is described by "The Wheel of Time Companion" as 33(21) which is a middle/low level in Aes Sedai hierarchy. With this level of strength she was unable to open alone a suitable gateway to Travel, so she burned out herself of the power when she tried to open one to save Galad.
She is from Tarabon and is 162 years old. Born in 838 NE, she went to the White Tower in 854 NE. She spent twelve years as a novice and ten years as Accepted before being raised to the shawl in 876 NE.
Colavaere's advisor Edit
Annoura is taken as an Aes Sedai advisor when Colavaere Saighan takes the Sun Throne for herself. When Rand al'Thor arrives back in Cairhien he deposes Colavaere and spares Annoura from being sent to the Wise Ones with the other Aes Sedai prisoners; instead he puts her back as Berelain's advisor. She is in the throne room when Cadsuane Melaidhrin arrives. She is shocked at her being alive. Cadsuane then grabs her and grills her on all the events that have occurred recently.
Searching for the Prophet Edit
She leaves Cairhien with Berelain and Perrin Aybara and Travels to Ghealdan to track down Masema Dagar. Perrin sends her and Berelain to meet with Queen Alliandre. She brings Alliandre back to the camp and helps Faile and Berelain pressure her into keeping her oath of fealty to Perrin by staying with the army.
Later she is seen meeting with Masema by herself after Faile is kidnapped by the Shaido Aiel. She accompanies Perrin when he looks over the Shaido camped in Malden. She goes with Perrin and Berelain to So Habor, where they collect grain for their troops. She accompanies him back to camp and witnesses him cleave a Shaido prisoner's hand off when he is looking for answers on his missing wife. She later goes with Perrin and Berelain when he makes his deal with the Seanchan. Berelain has become wary of Annoura ever since she learned of her meeting with Masema.
When Perrin is meeting with Tylee Khirgan, Tylee tells Perrin of a rebellious group of Whitecloaks moving north, not far from where the camp is. Annoura informs the group that the Whitecloaks are led by Galadedrid Damodred. Annoura assists in the attack on the Shaido and the Wise Ones in the Battle of Malden to rescue Faile.
Encounter with the Whitecloaks Edit
While traveling from Malden, she is with Perrin when they find land that appears to have been affected by the Blight. Later she attends a meeting with Perrin to decide where the army should now go. A decision is made to send a scouting force to Cairhien to start looking for Rand. She is present during Seonid Traighan's report to Perrin on current events that are happening within the continent. She attends the second parley between Perrin and Galad. She links with Masuri Sokawa and Jur Grady to create a gateway for the last of the non-combatants to leave Perrin's camp and make their way to Caemlyn.
