Eshonai's Mother is an elderly Parshendi who lives on the Shattered Plains on Roshar. She is described as being solid despite her advanced age, having a neat round face and wears her hair strands in a braid tied by a ribbon given to her by Eshonai. She wears workform.
She knows old songs which tell of Parshendi history, and lives on the edge of Narak. She is suggested to be senile, often forgetting important details, people, where she is and seeing objects that are not there. She is rounded up with the Parshendi who refuse to adopt Stormform when Eshonai begins to take control of Narak with the new form. She escapes with Thude and the rest of the dissenters.
She refused to change forms, despite the discovery of new forms, due to a belief that it would encourage stratification and bring harm to her people.
It has yet to be reviewed.
