"When she was grown to full stature and beauty she was tall and strong, and loved much to ride and hunt in the forests. There she was often in the company of the sons of Feanor, her kin; but to none was her hearts love given." "She was pale, though her hair was dark, and she was never arrayed but in silver and white." (The Silmarillion, QS, Ch. 5 - Of Eldamar and the princes of the Eldalië.)
She was strong-willed and stubborn, doing what she wanted rather than listening to other peoples' advice (see QS, Ch 16 - Of Maeglin). Turgon was her favourite brother.
