General

Eadyth is the First Selector (Head) of the Blue Ajah, as well as a Sitter in the Hall (NS, Ch. 12). Kairen Stang says that she is perhaps the most capable Blue in the last hundred years (NS, Ch. 12).

She is round-faced and stout; her hair is white and reaches her waist (NS, Ch. 11, NS, Ch. 12).

Timeline

  • Eadyth welcomes Moiraine and Siuan to the Blue Ajah (NS, Ch. 11).
  • Eadyth speaks to Moiraine and Siuan about sensing the strength of power in other sisters (NS, Ch. 12).
  • Eadyth gives Moiraine and Siuan each a letter-of-rights in the amount of one thousand gold crowns and tells them that they will receive the same each year (NS, Ch. 13).
  • Eadyth speaks to Moiraine before she leaves to find the Dragon Reborn (NS, Ch. 14).

Relationships

Eadyth seems to have good relationships with all of her sisters in her Ajah. She is kind when welcoming Moiraine and Siuan into the Blue Ajah, and whenever she speaks to them, it is with some degree of warmth or friendliness.

Miscellaneous

Eadyth is very uncomfortable while speaking to Moiraine and Siuan about gauging the strength of other sisters (NS, Ch. 12).

Quotes

"Welcome home, sister. We have waited long for you." (New Spring, Chapter 11)

"For six years you have been taught that the second greatest rudeness is to speak directly of someone's strength in the One Power. In truth, I find it difficult to do so now, necessary though it is. For six years, you have been strongly discouraged from thinking of your own strength in the Power or anyone else's. Now, you must learn to compare your strength to that of every sister you meet." (New Spring, Chapter 12)

"Spend wisely. You can obtain more if need be, but ask too often, and you will have to answer questions in the Hall. Believe me, being questioned in the Hall is never pleasant. Never." (New Spring, Chapter 13)

"The Amyrlin can be fearsome toward anyone who goes against her wishes in the smallest way, Moiraine." (New Spring, Chapter 14)
