She has a detached nature, seldom showing any emotion at all.
She thinks about clothes as much as anything else, and her clothes are always neat and of a high quality.
Strength and Abilities
Ashmanaille is not particularly strong in the One Power, but still in the last of the top-ten levels in Aes Sedai hierarchy during recent times. In fact her level of strength is described by "The Wheel of Time Companion" as 22(10).
She is one of only nine Aes Sedai among the rebels able to make cuendillar due to her sufficient strength in Earth. She is, however, very slow at transforming iron to cuendillar, slower than Kairen Stang.
She and Phaedrine ask Beonin Marinye's advice about the murders of Anaiya and Kairen. The discussion yields suspicions of a male channeler among the camp and advice to follow the connection of both sisters being Blue Ajah.
During the Last Battle, she is on gateway making duty, and recognizes Min Farshaw when the latter asks for a gateway to the Seanchan army nearby, most probably from the time before the White Tower Schism, as she addresses Min as "Elmindreda", the alias Min used while hiding in the White Tower under Siuan's orders.
