Attack on Shoyul Ghoul
Egwene was born in Emond’s Field and was the daughter of Bran, Mayor of Emond’s Field, and Marin al’Vere. She has four older sisters: Elisa, Alene, Loise, and Berowyn. Her family lives in the Winespring Inn in Emond’s Field.
She is the Amyrlin Seat. She was raised from Accepted because nowhere in the Tower Law does it say that the Amyrlin Seat must be Aes Sedai. Although she never got to choose an Ajah, she wanted to choose the Green Ajah.
Egwene has dark brown hair and big brown eyes, and she is about 5’2". At Bel Tine in 998 NE, when she is 17, Egwene is allowed to braid her hair to show that she is of marriageable age. She wears her hair unbraided once she leaves the Two Rivers because few Aes Sedai wear their hair braided. As Amyrlin Seat, she wears the striped stole that goes with her title and wears the Great Serpent ring to show that she is Aes Sedai.
