This question has been bugging me for awhile and I hoped someone here could at least point me to where I could get it answered, if not here. So...

Page 87 of TSR 9475 The Seven Sisters:

There is an illustration of three women; two I'm presuming are Alustriel and Laeral (or maybe The Simbul?), but who or what is the multi-armed woman holding the book, scroll and candle?

Probably an apprentice, but I have no idea.

Certainly looks like an apprentice to me.

Just to note, I see at least 7 hands. From the way it looks kind of... it looks like she has two sets of arms... one set is normal. The other at the elbow breaks out into 3 separate forearms, kind of like the way a sharn's forearm breaks into 3 sets of hands. I wouldn't be surprised if she's some kind of transformed sharn.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Interesting, though the arms look separate to me in the picture...

My guess, up to this point, was that she is some kind of unique construct.

You might think of just asking Valerie - she is pretty cool about people talking about old D&D drawing

It appears you would be looking for Valerie A. Valusek, google search does appear to indicate she has a facebook presence. With facebook you might not get correct one. Other ways to contact would be contact publishers of her work to request message be sent to her.

That is correct. She is on Facebook, and is friends with some of the other old staff there (including Ed). When you search for her she is really the only one that comes up and it says she worked for TSR in her profile so its hard to get that wrong.

I know she's been in the hospital lately, so she might respond slowly.
