She is as tall and lean as most men.
She was a Hunter of the Horn before becoming one of Elayne's bodyguards. She is very skilled with a sword and teaches Elayne's other bodyguards how to use one. She is outside the house on Full Moon Street when the Aes Sedai's Warders go charging inside. Birgitte Silverbow gets the bodyguards to instead ride back to the royal palace and mount a strike force to try and rescue Elayne, who is taken captive.
