Geranid is a scientist and Ardent living with her husband, Ashir, " ... on a tiny Reshi island, technically sent to provide for the religious needs of any Vorin visitors." However, according to her husband, living there was a way of getting away and focusing on both Geranid's and Ashir's own experiments.
Geranid discovers that when she measures spren, they vary in size, luminosity, and shape. But when she makes a notation they immediately freeze in their current state.
