The Wheel Turns...
Wisdom of Emonds Field
Nynaeve is a pretty woman of average height with dark eyes and long dark hair worn in a thick braid that hangs down over her shoulder.
When Nynaeve is annoyed or perturbed she has a habit of gripping and tugging unconciously on her braid and villagers have learned to watch for this danger sign as Nynaeve’s temper is well known and feared.
Nynaeve’s father thought of her as the son he never had and taught her to track, hunt and fish. Unlike many tomboys, however, Nynaeve later integrated femininity in her adulthood.
She was orphaned around the age of fourteen and was apprenticed to Doral Barran, the Wisdom of Emond’s Field, shortly afterward.
Nynaeve is the the youngest Wisdom the Two Rivers had ever had, and one of the most successful. She was said to be able to cure ailments no other Wisdom ever could and wounds that would leave a man maimed for life were sometimes gone without a scar [verify]. She was the only Wisdom in the Two Rivers within the span of the books who can truly Listen to the Wind. She was able to deal with both the Village Council and the Women’s Circle due to her forceful personality and her natural ability with politics.
