A battle hardened master-at-arms
Your training instructor on Oghma Island, Evandra took little pity on her pupils and hardened Bertug, Nymeria, and Veranas into the warriors they are today. When the island was attacked, she sacrificed herself to buy you time to escape. Her presence at the ceremony seemed to indicate she knew this would occur.
Before her death, while battling Bahamut, she was named Avandra by the fierce Dragonborn.
