Emma Brandstone was the wife of Dell (Chase) Brandstone. She lived with her husband and children in Westland. She had several daughters with Chase, of which one was named Lee. She also became the adoptive mother to Rachel.
When Richard, Kahlan, and Zedd came to her house bloodied from a recent attack, Emma remained unruffled (having seen Chase in much worse conditions) and cleaned Richard's wounds. Emma was still smiling but not as brightly in the morning when Richard, Kahlan and Zedd were preparing to leave with Chase as a guide.
Chase later returned home to Emma and his family, with Rachel. Emma took care of them all as Chase trained Rachel. However, having been tracked down by Friedrich Gilder, Chase set out to find and save Adie and Zedd, who Gilder revealed had been captured by the Imperial Order. After doing so, Zedd requested that Chase became a Keep Warden and set out to bring Emma and the rest of his family to the Wizard's Keep to live.
However, Chase never made it, being ambushed by the former Seeker of Truth, Samuel, who also kidnapped Rachel. Chase later helped to rescue Rachel however, and they all ultimately survived the Imperial Order War.
Personality and traits Edit
She was a kind, friendly woman, always with a smile on her face. She had gray streaked hair and also seemed the opposite of Chase since she would be mortified if she intimidated someone.
