Amalisa, Lady (ah-mah-LEE-sah): Shienaran of House Jagad; Lord Agelmar's sister. (The Great Hunt, Glossary)

The strength evident in her brother's face was in hers, too, and no less for the softer line of cheek and jaw. There were those who said that as hard and renowned a fighter as Agelmar was, he was no better than even a match for his sister. (Moiraine about Amalisa; The Great Hunt, Chapter 4)

"I am Shienaran, of a noble House and the blood of soldiers. My line has fought the shadow since before there was a Shienar, three thousand years without fail or a day's weakness." (Amalisa to Liandrin; The Great Hunt, Chapter 5)
