She has blue eyes and curly hair. She has lost the ageless look and, instead, looks merely short of her middle years.
She stands very high in the Aes Sedai hierarchy, matching high-ranking sisters such as Saerin Asnobar and Pevara Tazanovni. Her level of strength is described by "The Wheel of Time Companion" as 14(2). After being Healed, her strength level remained the same.
Her name indicates that she is likely from Andor. She was born in 816 NE and went to the White Tower in 832 NE. She was a novice for nine years and Accepted for six. Sashalle was raised to the shawl in 847 NE.
Sashalle was one of the Aes Sedai involved in Rand al'Thor's kidnapping. Along Galina she was the strongest in this expedition, and so they where at the top in the hierarchy when the Red Ajah took charge after diplomatic failure.
Sashalle begins to challenge Samitsu Tamagowa's authority in Cairhien after she is Healed due to her being far higher in the One Power. She is present when Samitsu Heals Dobraine Taborwin from being stabbed by two robbers rummaging through his room.
Sashalle and Samitsu greet Elayne Trakand when she arrives in Cairhien and pass formally all duties of ruler-ship onto the new queen. It is unlikely that she has held the Oath Rod since being Healed.
The Last Battle Edit
Likely on Cadsuane Melaidhrin's command, Sashalle and the other sisters present in Cairhien joined the Last Battle in Thakan'dar Valley, where Sashalle was placed under Compulsion by Hessalam and forced to feed her her strength. Due to over-exhaustion, Sashalle dies on the slopes of Shayol Ghul.
