A local bookworm who managed to spend many years skulking around the covenant's library as a reader, Elishiva has been assigned to research Tribunal records to find any vis source references belonging to extinct covenant and report them to the magi for investigation.

Late in 1226, Yentl the matchmaker and her parents finally managed to arrange a marriage for her with a man from another community down the Severn. He is over a decade younger than her and overawed by the covenant and its inhabitants. They are now pressuring her to have children as soon as possible as she is pushing 30 without a family.
