Erith daughter of Iva daughter of Alar is an Ogier from Stedding Tsofu.

Appearance Edit

She is small for an Ogier, standing about 8 feet tall, with a straight mouth and a short and well rounded nose. Her features were mroe delicate than Loial's. Her eyes are the color of a silverbell's ripe seedpod. She has glossy dark hair down to her back. Her ears are curving and plump tipped with fine tufts. Her voice sounded like the softer rumble of a smaller bumblebee.

First meeting with Loial Edit

Erith first met Rand al'Thor and Loial as they were pursuing Padan Fain and the Horn of Valere.[1] There was apparently a mutual attraction between Loial and Erith; before Rand's party left the stedding Erith gave Loial a flower, which he pressed inside one of his books. She told Loial she thought he was handsome; he told her she had nice ears, which would be like a human man telling a human woman she had nice breasts.

The chase Edit

She later joined Elder Haman and Loial's mother on a journey to find Loial, who, in their opinion, had been away from Stedding Shangtai too long; his mother had plans to marry him off to Erith. The three Ogier followed Rand to Shadar Logoth so Rand could seal the Waygate there, but then journeyed on to the Two Rivers and Emond's Field, where Rand last knew Loial to be located. Erith initially quailed at the thought of entering Shadar Logoth, but concern over Loial compelled her to go along with it.

They finally catch up with Loial at Lord Algarin's manor house in Tear, where Erith and Loial are wed by Elder Haman. Then they set off with Loial's mother for Stedding Shangtai, where Loial is to address the Great Stump. Erith would fight alongside Loial in the Last Battle.
