Men listened closer to calm tones than to the loudest shouts, so long as firmness and certainty accompanied the calm - Lan PoV (NS, Ch. 1)

Faiselle Darone is an Aes Sedai and Sitter of the Green Ajah for the rebel Aes Sedai. She is stocky and copper-skinned with a square face (TPoD, Ch. 19) and "mocks every tale of a seductive Domani" (KoD, Ch. 23). She has two Warders (KoD, Ch. 2).

She is one of Lelaine's supporters (LoC, Ch. 37; TPoD, Ch. 16; CoT, Ch. 19).

Quotes

"'I expressed myself forcefully on duty.' Faiselle, stocky and square-faced, was forceful in everything; in truth, a hammer of a woman. She mocked every tale of seductive Domani. 'I pointed out that Llyw had been becoming more and more dangerous to himself and others since Kairen died, and I told her it couldn't be allowed to continue. I made her see that as the only sister ever to save two other Warders in the same circumstances, she was the only choice to try doing it again. I'll admit I had to twist her arm a little, but she eventually saw the right of the matter.'" (Faiselle about Myrelle and Llyw; Knife of Dreams, Chapter 23).
