Appearance and Abilities Edit
Ester is under five feet tall, with large brown eyes, a short cap of dark brown curls and a small, upturned nose. She is cute, almost doll-like, which she does not like having pointed out, any more than she enjoys anyone referring to her height.
Her strength level is 16(4), a high level in the Aes Sedai hierarchy. She is strong enough to Travel.
Among the ten ferrets, Ester is the second in hierarchy by strength and years of training.
Her father was a shipowner in Illian; she came from a line of shipowners, ship captains and shipbuilders.
When Siuan was raised Amyrlin at such a young age she openly expressed reservations, earning a stiff penance; she felt no anger over this as she accepted that she had overstepped her bounds. However, this was used as part of her cover as a ferret. Also used was the fact that Siuan has outpaced her as a novice.
She had one Warder to whom she was married.
When Meidani Eschede is freed from her oath of obedience, it can be assumed Ester was as well.
