Rashima Kerenmosa captured my attention since she was first mentioned. I decided to chose this rather unkown character (I mean, maybe not unknown but not an actual main character) who, to me, is the very description of Baddassery.

"Rashima was born circa 1150 AB, during the Trolloc Wars. She joined the Aes Sedai and was raised to the Green Ajah. In 1251 AB, she became the Amyrlin Seat, the most powerful position on the continent. Whilst all Amyrlins during the Trolloc Wars had been more martial than their peacetime counterparts, Rashima took this to new extremes. She served directly as a general and battle leader, rather than relying on advice from a Warder or general. She fought in person rather than relying on others. Rashima is credited with restoring morale to the faltering Ten Nations after the destruction of Aridhol and Manetheren, with Trolloc armies ranging as far south as Barashta on the Sea of Storms.

Rashima led the defence of Tar Valon when the Trollocs broke into the city and partially razed it circa 1290 AB. She began diplomatic and military overtures that led to a string of major victories for the Ten Nations over the next ten years, most notably at Kaisin Pass, the Sorelle Step, Larapelle and Tel Norwin. Rashima's efforts culminated at the Battle of Maighande in 1301 AB, where the nations achieved a decisive victory over the Trollocs. Although not the final victory - tracking down and destroying all the remaining Trolloc bands would take another fifty years - it broke the back of the Shadowspawn invasion.

Rashima died during the battle, along with her five Warders. Around their bodies a wall of Trolloc and Myrddraal corpses was found, along with the bodies of no fewer than nine Dreadlords."

So, if baddass is what you want, this woman is everything you need. She's considered the very image of what a Green must be. Nine dreadlords and a wall of Trolloc corpses? I just LOVE HER! xD

This is my personal image of the woman. Of course I think I exagerated to give her "Green-ish" and legendary features; fierce, beautiful, wearing amazing clothes. I gave her light blonde hair and golden eyes with tanned skin because I imagine her like a golden statue x'D

PD: A HORSE! I DREW A KSADFKLF HORSE!! I'm so happy, I usually suck at drawing animals xDDD This one looks too delicate thpugh, I wanted to draw a fierce stallion but this one looks more like a mare to me .-.

Really well done. I love when people chose an interesting sub character to focus on. And your art style is awesome - the horsey looks spectacular btw. My favourite Sedai remains Verin, who turned out to be pretty bad ass in a different, Brown Ajah sort of way.

I'm working on a remake on her design, keeping most of her features and coloring though...
I also love Verin, she was VERY bad ass indeed *_* 
Thank you so much!

She is mentioned a few times through the series but I don't remember the exact book.

She was a BA to the extreme! I barely recall her being mentioned, but I might have a new favorite character. :D

NICE! I love when people do truly obscure characters, it just adds more detail to the depth of the story-line.
