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.
