Lady Katsa: The main protagonist and niece of King Randa of the Middluns, she has one green eye and one blue eye. Her Grace is first thought to be killing after she kills a distant cousin with one blow of her hand as a child. It is later revealed to be survival, enabling her to endure even the harshest conditions (e.g. she never gets sick, can create a fire in poor conditions, and she can hunt and kill any prey for food or protection). Because of her phenomenal combat skills - another aspect of her Grace but also result of years of training - Katsa was used by her uncle to carry out his dirty work. Without her uncle's knowledge, however, she founds a secret group called The Council, which goes around all seven kingdoms helping those whom the kings have ignored. She becomes friends with Prince Po of Lienid, who convinces her of her independence from her uncle, but becomes furious with him when she discovers the truth of his Grace because she has a deep hatred towards mind-readers. Gradually, the two come to an understanding, and Katsa realizes that she is in love with Prince Po. She declares her independence from King Randa, ends up killing King Leck and later becomes a fighting and self-defense teacher to girls.
“If there's anyone I wish to stun at dinner, I'll hit him in the face.”
“Something caught in her throat at this second thanks, when she'd threatened him so brutally. When you're a monster, she thought, you are thanked and praised for not behaving like a monster. She would like to restrain from cruelty and receive no admiration for it.”
“What can be so funny to a prince who's turned his hair blue?”
