Appearance and Abilities
Seonid is a short (5'1 tall) and pale Cairhienin with dark hair that fell in waves to her shoulders with big, dark, bottomless eyes. While she is not particularly slender, neither is she stocky or stout. She is atypical for a Green in that she is cool and reserved, with an air of dignity and authority, with sometimes a determined smile. Her normal attitude is to be brisk, practical, businesslike and methodical.
She sometimes wears a Kesiera on her forehead, with a white fingernail-sized stone.
This is confirmed by "The Wheel of Time Companion" where her level of strength is described as 17(5).
Seonid is 72 years old. She was born in the year 928 NE and went to the White Tower in 946 NE. After spending thirteen years as novice and twelve as Accepted she was raised to the shawl in the year 971 NE.
She chose the Green Ajah because it is the Battle Ajah but, as mentioned above, Seonid is atypical for a Green. She is a lesbian, but she does not hate men, she just does not want to bed them.
Ambassadress to the Dragon
She is allied with the Salidar Aes Sedai and is a member of the embassy sent from Salidar to Rand al'Thor in Caemlyn. Min reported that Seonid mulled over every rumor from her native Cairhien, and kept her own counsel as to her opinion of Rand.
The embassy arrives in Caemlyn. Seonid visits the Dragon Reborn, along with Merana and Masuri - the first three to do so. She is also one of the seven who confront Rand with the Mask of Mirrors after Demira is injured. Later, the embassy members connect with Verin and Alanna, deciding to form an alliance with them.
Seonid and Masuri Sokawa of the Brown Ajah accompany Perrin into Ghealdan to track down Masema Dagar. Masuri and Seonid were sent by Rand under the order to obey Perrin as they would to the Dragon, something that left room for interpretation, as she, Perrin and Masuri are all aware. In Seonid's mind, she was determined to fulfill her Oaths to Rand; and one of the best ways to do that was to suppress the Dragonsworn in whatever way possible.
She considered Rand as arrogant as any king, and had the typical Cairhenin attitude towards the Aiel.
Tracking the Prophet
In Perrin's camp, Annoura stays with Berelain but Masuri and Seonid stay with Edarra and the other Wise Ones. She becomes an apprentice to the Aiel Wise Ones and even has to suffer beatings from them.
Perrin and the others leave Abila and return to their camp to discover that Faile and others are captured by the Shaido.
Seonid, Masuri, Carelle and Edarra join Delora, Janina, Marline and Nevarin in the Wise Ones' tent to discuss the kidnapping.
Seonid, Masuri and the Wise Ones join the Two Rivers men as they all prepare to head south after Faile.
After the rescue, Seonid, Furen and Teryl join Perrin and Faile. Seonid Heals Perrin's and Faile's injuries.
Meeting with the Whitecloaks
From Malden, Perrin and his followers travel slowly through Ghealdan to the Jehannah Road. A bubble of evil brings black snakes and the Aes Sedai are bitten. Healing does not work properly.
While Perrin's army travels they come across an area of land which is diseased as the Blight. Perrin orders Seonid, Masuri, and the Wise Ones to burn it. She then attends a meeting with Perrin to decide where the army should go.
Seonid advances enough in the Wise Ones opinions that she is allowed to speak without their permission. She decides to accompany a scouting force that will be sent to Cairhien to start looking for Rand.
Perrin requests Seonid and the other Aes Sedai to meet with him just as his force is about to engage the Whitecloaks. He charges the Aes Sedai to create a massive trench between the two forces but she declines as her oaths prevent her due to possible damage to the Whitecloaks who are close.
The Asha'man, Aes Sedai and Wise Ones link and open a large gateway for Perrin's army to Travel to the Field of Merrilor.
The Last battle
Seonid is not mentioned in the last book but as with many Aes Sedai sworn to Rand, she probably fought the Last Battle on the slopes of Thakan'dar. It is not stated whether she survived or not, so it is likely that she did.
She is one of the few confirmed lesbians throughout the series.
