Deni Colford is a member of the Queen's Guard of Andor. Before, she kept order in a wagon driver's tavern in Low Caemlyn. She is a graying, bulky and placid-faced Andoran with wide shoulders (WH, Ch. 7; CoT, Ch. 11).


  • She is in charge of the Guardswomen to replace Devore's, but she ignores Elayne's orders for them to keep out and announces that a servant came to inform them Lady Dyelin has returned (KoD, Ch. 16).


  • Deni does not know how to use the sword, but she is skilled with a cudgel (WH, Ch. 7).
  • She likes one of the other Guards, but Birgitte disapproves that they let it show when they are on duty (KoD, Ch. 17).


"The short man nodded to Deni, then straightened his back stiffly at a disapproving frown from Birgitte. Deni smiled at him shyly--Deni! shyly!--while a pair of Guardswomen went through the inevitable routine." (Elayne; Knife of Dreams, Chapter 17)

"Deni had taken her instructions literally; the Guardswomen had pummeled Mellar severely, leaving him a mass of bruises from head to foot." (Elayne; Knife of Dreams, Chapter 35)
