Appearance and Abilities Edit
Eldrith was quite strong in saidar; at 16(4) she was among the strongest in her group of Black sisters, just a pair of levels under Liandrin herself.
She was a little vague; considering her relative strength she could have risen faster as a student, but she was too much dreamy and absent minded even then.
After fleeing the White Tower with the other Aes Sedai of Liandrin's Group, she went to Tear and worked for the Forsaken Be'lal. They captured Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve and tried to trap Rand al'Thor just after he released Callandor.
When this failed, the group flees to Tanchico to try and steal the male a'dam from the Panarch's Palace. This plan was foiled by Elayne Trakand and Nynaeve al'Meara. In Tarabon Eldrith killed the stray cats that Marillin Gemalphin kept.
After Tanchico they went to Amadicia where Moghedien took over the group. There Liandrin tried to take advantage on a wounded Moghedien, but the Forsaken was more able than her, leaving Liandrin severely punished, demoted and shielded permanently. Upon leaving Liandrin's group, Moghedien placed Eldrith in charge, as the strongest in the One Power of the sisters remaining.
They next travelled to Samara. Eldrith let her Bond with her Warder slip on more than one occasion. So he was able to locate her, determined to kill her as a murderer and a possible Darkfriend. He was willing to suffer madness and death to see it done. Eldrith, however, wasn't willing to suffer the pain of his death through the bond, and refused to allow the other Black Ajah to kill him. Instead, they travelled to Caemlyn were presumably Elayne and Nynaeve were directed.
Some time after Elayne, who was under disguise of a Forsaken using the Mask of Mirrors, was interrogating Chesmal when Temaile and Eldrith burst into the cell. The first fell to her knees thinking Elayne was really one of the Forsaken, and Elayne shielded her before knocking her unconscious with a weave of Air. However, Eldrith did not recognize Elayne as one of the Chosen and the Black sisters started to fight back.
After a ferocious fight Elayne was able to kill Chesmal and to knock out Eldrith. Doilin Mellar, who also turned up, acted on orders and stabbed Temaile after slitting Eldrith's throat. He then fled the scene.
