By taking up her father's sword, Aisling conjured more than just his memory.
Aisling is perhaps one of the better heroes for new players to start with, as she is capable in both offensive and defensive capabilities. Calling Cador in tight situations is definitely always a card that can be played, as even the worst situations can at least be mitigated, and at best turned around, when you fight with Cador by your side. Alternately, using Cador's passive damage boost can help with one on one encounters, so long as you watch your six and corners to ensure you're not being pulled into a trap.
Also, Aisling's focus skill has a pretty significant impact on the field if used when enemies are near. This, coupled with some of her other talents and the ability to switch between defensive and offensive positions, is incredibly powerful.
