Lirazel is the present-day Chief Handmaiden of the Everqueen.
Described as having dark hair wild and unbound beneath her bronze helm, her narrow, amber-coloured eyes speak of a cold fury when roused. Though beautiful, her face, with its angular lines and narrow eyes can take on a twilit aspect that chills the blood. Her skin is tanned from a life spent in the forest, yet her pallor is deathly, as though her well-being was contingent on some external factor. It is unclear if the latter part is what happens when the Everqueen is near death, or if her pallor has always been so.[1a]
