"I had been here for seven years when Ajihad connected to the Varden. I have seen Nasuada grow from a nice little girl, to the woman she is today. A little irresponsible sometimes, but a good, born leader for Varden. The people will love her."
— Elessari talking about Nasuada to Eragon
Spoiler Eldest

Elessari was a human female, and a member the Council of Elders. She had long gray hair and carried a dagger. She supported controlling Nasuada as she led the Varden. The other four on the council are: Jörmundur, Falberd, Sabrae, and Umérth.

Paolini perhaps created the name out of inspiration by the Lord of the Rings.[1]The name Elessari sounds very similar to Elessar which was the elven name for Aragorn son of Arathorn in Tolkien's mythology.
