EWoT: Deni Colford

"... any day you wake up, maybe you die"
   —Deni Coldford

Deni Colford is a member of the Queen's Guards.


She has black hair that is graying, a placid face, strong arms and wide shoulders. She is blocky and about 5'6 tall.

She had no concept of fighting fair. Originally, she was adept with a pace-long, brass-studded cudgel but could not handle a sword. She improved after taking lessons.


She is one of the first eight of the Queens's Guards placed as a bodyguard when Elayne Trakand moves through Caemlyn to greet the people. She was a former bouncer in a tavern for wagon drivers in Low Caemlyn, a very unusual job for a woman.

She is assigned one of Elayne's guards, when Elayne arrives back from touring around all the minor Houses of Andor.

She escorts Elayne to the meeting with Dyelin Taravin and the other High Seats based in Caemlyn. When Daved Hanlon is captured and made prisoner, she and the other bodyguards pummel him severely.
