Character Information

Name (first and last) of this character: Lissandra Trelaine (Lissa for short)

State whether this is a Traditional or a Salidar character: Traditional

Age of this character * 120

Name of country where this character is from: Andor



Hair: Brown hair falling straight down to her mid-back, tied back with a simple ribbon.

Eyes: Hazel

Skin: Fair

Height: 5’5’’

Voice (low? high? any other characteristics? ie what does she sound like): She speaks softly and in even tones, so that you have to be quiet yourself and pay close attention to hear what she has to say. When under rare circumstances she does yell, it seems so out of her character that it attracts attention, which is exactly her goal.


Other: Lissandra is fairly utilitarian and wears very little as far as ornamentation. She tends to wear dresses that are simple and comfortable, and the only jewelry she owns has sentimental value to her. Lissa wears only one pendant, a gift from her little sister, and her great serpent ring.



Special Skills: Lissa is an exceptional cook, and unbeknownst to many also dabbles in poetry

Knowledge Weakness: Having grown up in a city, she knows very little of farming and agriculture.

Physical Weakness: Nothing specific, she is of average build.

Personality weakness: Though polite and personable, she is no social butterfly and her quietness is often mistaken for aloofness by those who wish to befriend her. She is a bit socially awkward, though she has grown out of this a bit over the years since novicehood.


Personality Lissa is more of an introvert, unless she is seeking answers. She prefers to listen than to talk and often it seems as if she is carefully analyzing every word you say. When needed, she will look you straight in the eye and tell you something you need to know but may not want to know. But she will do it in a quiet, calm voice. Lissa almost never appears shaken or upset. She has a fine sense of duty and loyalty, and a keen desire for knowledge that drives her.




Lissa’s father was an innkeeper in Caemlyn, and as soon as she could walk she was quickly pressed into service helping around the inn. But her mother seemed to want more for her children than having bawdy men stare at them as they blossomed into women. Sometimes visitors would leave books or notes behind and her mother taught her daughters to read from them, and would tell them stories. Lissa’s younger sister was the light of her world in childhood, though also a concern for her mother because she was born with a deformed hand.


As would happen from time to time, a pair of Aes Sedai came to take up a room at the inn. While Lissa was bringing out their meals one of the sisters asked if she would like to try something interesting. She was tested and soon after left the inn for the trip to Tar Valon carrying only a heart shaped pendant her sister made for her and a few pairs of clothes.


Lissandra did well in her novice years, accustomed to hard work and thrived in the intellectual challenge of her classes. She had acquaintances but very few friends in novicehood and acceptedhood, and spent most of her time at her studies. The White Tower opened up a whole new world for her, and an outlet to her insatiable curiosity as well.


Even before she knew it herself, some of the sisters could already see a White in the making. So it was little surprise when she finally petitioned to join their ranks upon gaining sisterhood. Finally finding a home that felt heart and soul to be where she belonged, she was a woman driven in the search for truth and the inner workings of men, events, and things. Not known to take much leisure, she found over the years that she enjoyed a few things when the moment was available. One of them was poetry, a secret interest that she shared with no one but her journal. Though it might seem odd for someone of her ajah to explore their more subjective and creative sides, Lissa would likely tell you that poetry held its own sort of truth if you looked deeply enough.


Lissandra was eventually promoted to Sitter, a duty and honor that she takes very seriously.
