Nesryn Faliq is a former city guard of Rifthold. She worked with Aelin and the rebels to overthrow the King of Adarlan. After the coup's success, she became the Captain of the Royal Guard.


Nesryn is slender with dark shoulder-length hair. Her eyes are always lightly lined with kohl, even on missions.


Nesryn is cold and unyielding. Aelin once thought that Nesryn could give Rowan a run for his money for her sheer iciness.

She has a strong sense of honor and joined the city guard to protect other foreigners from the discrimination and abuse she experienced as a child.


Nesryn became a city guard because, as a child, she was attacked by other children due to her heritage and none of the city guards helped her while she screamed.
