Amberle Elessedil: the daughter of Aine Elessedil and the granddaughter of Eventine Elessedil. She was one of the Chosen selected by the Ellcrys to tend to her needs. She was the first female Chosen that had been selected in 500 years.Her selection as a Chosen was quite controversial at that time, as the Ellcrys rarely selected any female Chosen. It was revealed later in the novel that the Ellcrys only selected female Chosen when she thought that she might be dying, as a female was needed if a rebirth of the Ellcrys to take place. Thus, when the Ellcrys felt that she was beginning to die, she chose Amberle to help "give birth" to a new Ellcrys. However, in their conversations, Amberle became quite frightened by the Ellcrys, as she felt that she was losing her identity to the tree. As a result, she fled from her duties as a Chosen. When the demons started breaking through the Forbidding, they slew all the Chosen except for Amberle.Allanon sent Wil Ohmsford to protect Amberle while she traveled to the Bloodfire to renew the seed of the Ellcrys. In addition, they were aided by Crispin and half a dozen Elven Hunters. During their journey, a Demon named the Reaper stalked them in an attempt to kill Amberle and therefore stop any attempt to renew the Ellcrys and restore the Forbidding.After defeating the Reaper and placing the seed of Ellcrys into the Bloodfire, Amberle and Wil returned to Arborlon with the aid of Perk, a Wing Rider-in-training. In order to save the Elves, Amberle became a new Ellcrys and shut the Demons away once more in the Forbidding.
