Trissiny Avelea is a student of the class of 1182 at Unseen University. She is a paladin and the Hand of Avei.

This title also gives her the rank of General, recognized by the Sisterhood and the Imperial Army.

Her birth mother is Principia Locke but she was raised by Mother Narnasia Darnassy at Viridill Abbey.

When she was fifteen, in 1179, Avei visited the Abbey and proclaimed Trissiny her new Hand. Later the same day, the goddess explained to Mother Darnassy that Trissiny would leave for the Unseen University in three years.

She is tall and wiry and her hair is blond.

After her excursion and the fighting against the centaurs in the Golden Sea, she received the divine horse Arjen from Avei.
