Covina was a Maiden of the Spear.Covina had been a Maiden for almost two years, and she was one of the best. Awoman named Avenda raised her, but she had known a young age that Avenda wasnot her true mother. Butshe had been kind.
At the age of Three Covina began practicing how tostalk. There was morethan one occasion that she caused her mother to take a spill, by jumping out to scare her. She used to run around caring kitchenknives pretending to be a Maiden. By the time she was nine, she had startedrunning everyday, tryingto get herself into shape. Her mother was proud thather daughter had so much drive and determination, but cautioned her not to grow up to fast.
Because of her attention only on becoming a MaidenCovina never made many friends, and all of her free time that was not spenttraining she spent reading. She was an intelligent and witty girl but had a lack of social skills, which caused her to have no friends. Overthe years she became bitter and angry. By the age of 15 she had a temper that everyone was afraid of.
At 15 Covina went through the trials to become a Maiden, and since she hadbeen dedicated. Many of the others thought that she was too serious, and because of that she did not have many friends. Infact she Never spoke unless it was necessary. Maiden hand talk was all she used to communicate with the other girls. She did not seem to mind that she was alone. At the age of 19 she had been hurt badly and was being tended by a Wise One. The woman explained to her that she was able to channeland that she was to become a wise one. Covina wanted nothing more than to cry, but no maiden would waste a tear.
The day she stood facing Ruieden was perhaps the worst day of her life. The one thing she had always known, counted on and loved was gone. She feltutterly and completely alone. Becoming a Wise Onewas the last thing she wanted.
UPDATE. Many things had changed since that fated day on the sloaps of Rhuieden. She had rised to great heights in the Aiel, she is the Head Wise One with the Aiel and married to the Clan Chief. For Ghaul she uses a firm hand in public, but always has sweet words for him when they are alone. Her temper has slacked some, though she is no less hard than before. She is also expecting her first child to arrive soon.
