Ok here is something of a background for Vitani Chevalier. It's brief. There is more to her but I didn't want to write a novelette.
Vitani Chevalier is from Andor. Not of a noble family. Her parents are farmers. She’s well trained in stewardship, husbandry (including animal), and educated. There are three children in her family. Her sister, being eldest. Aellan her brother being the middle child, she the youngest.
The eldest sister is married and moved away. Vitani did have the chance however to become quite close to her brother. Aellan is her sun, moon and stars. She grew up adoring and hero worshipping him. He is the one that taught her the ‘basics’ of healing. The pair would heal wounded wild animals and farm animals alike. Given that her father was training her to deal with trading, Vitani was educated. At the age of thirteen she could read, write and cipher quite well.
She showed an affinity with animals early on. When she was the one tending wounded animals they seemed to return to full health somewhat more quickly than if Aellan had. It wasn’t an instant healing, but the healing occurred at a faster rate.
It wasn’t long after her 13th birthday that Aellan went to the tower. He enrolled in training there to become Gaidin.
It was just six months after this occurrence that her family’s farm was attacked by darkspawn. Vitani had been in the barn with a cow that was close to birthing time. In a moment of terror Vitani’s gift wakened.
Aellan had spoken of Vitani to others at the Tower. His stories had given some cause to wonder about his sister having a gift. It just happened one of the Aes Sedai he’d befriended was on her way to meet Vitani, and had arrived just moments before the outburst of her gift.
The attack was dealt with first, then Vitani was found, passed out in the stall buried under hay the cow had churned up. Within hours of her waking, the Aes Sedai set off for Tar Valon with Vitani in tow. There could be no doubt she was gifted.
Vitani worked very hard. But it hurt for Aellan to be so close, yet she not able to see him often. He had always been her best friend and confidant. Vitani was very passionate about certain things. It often got her into trouble. She always took her punishment in silence and with good grace.
In her time as Accepted, she was a busy girl. She was responsible for starting an orphanage/soup kitchen in Tar Valon. She was instrumental in establishing a collegium of sorts to help train both young and old for better jobs. She was able to get the guild masters behind her in this endeavor. She started a hospice outside of the Tower, as well as an area to help tend to the sick animals of the city. These projects completed proved her ready for a trip through the arches.
She chose the Yellow in the end.
