Éowyn is Éomer's sister and Théoden's daughter. She is a trained shield-maiden, but not allowed to fight in any real conflict, because of her sex. She was born in Third Age 2995 and was twenty-four at the time of the War of the Ring.
She was very beautiful and was coveted by the evil Grìma, counselor to Théoden and pawn of Saruman. Both Théoden and Éomer were protective of Éowyn, which the free-spirited shield-maiden found smothering. She fell in love with Aragorn when he arrived at Edoras, and despaired when he left to enter the Paths of the Dead.
Feeling she had only her honor left to live for, Éowyn disguised herself as a man, called herself "Dernhelm" and joined the army of Rohan as it rode to war against Sauron's invasion of Gondor. At the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, she came to the aid of the dying king Théoden, and stood her ground defending him against the dread Lord of the Nazgul.
The mighty nazgul was not wary of her, for he feared no mortal man, having known for a thousand years of the prophecy of Gildor that he would die at the hand of no man. Éowyn, of course, was not a man. With the aid of Merry the hobbit, Éowyn slew the lord of the nazgul and successfully defended her king. But her own despair over Théoden's death, Aragorn's supposed death, and the contact with the Morgul-lord caused her to succumb to the Black Breath.
She was cured by Aragorn after the battle, who had arrived with the captured fleet of Umbar. During her recovery, she fell in love with the captain of Ithilien, Faramir, son of Denethor, who was also recovering. They were married the following year and took up residence in Ithilien.
Éowyn was tall, slender, had long golden hair and pale skin, and was said to be very beautiful. She later became known as the White Lady of Ithilien.
1. I think Éowyn's high Ego and Presence are justified by her ability to defy authority, defy convention, and most of all, to defy the Lord of the Nazgul.
2. I also thought of giving her a "Loyal to Théoden" disadvantage similar to Éomer's, but it really doesn't seem to have been much of a speedbump for our strong-willed lady. You could certainly argue that facing off against a nazgul is cause to give her the disadvantage. I wouldn't say you were wrong.
