She was plump but hard eyed, with a round face.
She was extremely hard and strict as Amyrlin, and imposing strict disciplinary measures on the Tower, even public castigations to many Aes Sedai. Hating also the male gender, she fired all the male clerks in the White Tower.
Many sisters were surprised that she had chosen Gray instead of Red Ajah when she was raised to the shawl. Nonetheless she chose Duhara Basaheen as her Keeper of the Chronicles and Amira Moselle as her Mistress of Novices, both from the Red.
She was secretely warned by Siuan Sanche about the Black Ajah and its relation with the deaths of five Aes Sedai, Tamra Ospenya's Searchers. It is possible that she hinted her suspicions for she died mysteriously in 984 NE; Chesmal Emry induced the Red Ajah to murder her. The Black Ajah was not directly involved.
