Personality

Tayva is known for for her patience, however once it is gone she is also known for her temper and lack of forgiveness. She views it as practical to allow people to make mistakes, but to punish them if they do not try to rectify their problems.

 

History

Tayva was born and raised in Saldea. When she was nine years old her father went on a campaign into the Blight and never returned. Her mother took her pledge to take up his sword literally and when he did not return with the others she armed herself and went out alone into the Blight to join her husband in death. Left an orphan at the age of ten Tayva was the last of her family alive. Having no one to take care of her she learned quickly to take care of herself.

 

The blight scared her, though, and as a young girl she travelled from town to town working anywhere she could find in order to pay for her keep and eventually ended up on Arad Doman. She was entranced by the culture of the Domani and stayed there for two years having been taken in by a kindly Domani woman who was unable to have children of her own. The woman taught Tayva her culture and her way of life.

 

When she was seventeen Tayva was hauled off to the Tower by a Sister who who realized her potential with the One Power. Though it was against Tayva's will she changed her mind when she saw the logic behind developing her ability to protect herself. She had always been very logical about how life worked which was something that her parents instilled in her from a young age. Death was just another part of life and they had wanted their daughter to understand the unforgiving world in which she lived.

 

Tayva learned what she could to the best of her ability, though she wasn't very strong in any one thing she did try to learn at least a rudimentary knowledge of anything she could get her hands on, including basic healing. Her logical approach to things drew her to both the White and Grey Ajahs when it was time for her to choose her Ajah. She eventually chose the White because she believed that their search for Truth should include the fact that Truth is based on perception and that everyone's perceptions are different. She has worked hard to add a more common sense and practical perspective on things.

 

While she wasn't always agreed with, she could never be dis-proven either, and therefore developed a healthy respect from the others in her Ajah in spite of her somewhat uncommon ideals. Her extreme sense of empathy often allowed her to see other's perspectives quite clearly and made her a very good negotiator as she applied her talents to seeing the truth behind conflicts.

 

After Taedra's mysterious disappearance the elder Sisters of the White Ajah began their search for a new Ajah head. Someone who would take all things into consideration when judging the future of the Ajah. After much deliberation they chose Tayva, much to her surprise. She swore to do this job to the best of her ability and became more dedicated than ever to her search for the Truth behind all that is happening and has already happened.

Just one thing. Saldaeans don't have red hair. Few people do outside of the Aiel. Rand's hair colour is often noted as making him stand out amongst other people.

I know of one Saldaean with red hair - Sheriam, the MoN. That's the only reason I allowed it to go through  :D

Thanks, Tigsy  ;D

 

I changed her character count now - forgot to put in there earlier that her 1st character died, so she now officially only has 2.

Red hour outside of the aiel is rare but not totally out there - Morgase comes to mind too, and I always imagined Elayne's hair as a strawberry blonde kind of colour :)

I know that. Red hair is still discouraged much the way green eyes are. Everyone wants red hair and green eyes and it gets a bit monotonous is all.  :)
