The Master Healer and mother figure of the Feanorians. Is old and of half-Vanyarin, half-Noldorin descent, studied under Este in Valinor and went with the Feanorians at her friend Nerdanel's request.

Living proof that appearances may be deceiving, rules the Healing Ward with an iron fist and doesn't tolerate imperfect work; nicknamed Nasty Nesta. Likes displine (yes - that kind, too - now get your mind back out of the gutter), braids, white, corsets, tea, dancing, herbs, used to be rather promiscuous for an elf. Now is a bit of a workaholic and health fetishist, wears black leather goth boots, the existence of hobnails is subject to debate. Has an otherwise very no-nonsense, no-frills approach to life.

Also, contrary to most all the above, the mother-to-be of Curufin's twin daughters. Her fringe is a time-honoured hereditary possession that will be passed on to Laurinyelle and Laurincalme.
