Sword Maiden (剣の乙女 Ken no otome) is a former gold-ranked adventurer who runs the Temple of Law as Archbishop of the Supreme God.
Sword Maiden is an extremely beautiful woman usually having a blindfold to hide her eyes. Her body is covered in several faint white lines that have all mostly healed by the time the events of the story takes place. Her eyes, which she keeps behind a blindfold, were less so.
Sword Maiden is a calm and serene person who doesn't normally get upset with others.
However, this masks the depression and anxiety beneath her exterior. The trauma that was born from her experience as a captive follows her to this day. It was only thanks to meeting Goblin Slayer that it has lessened.
Sword Maiden was once captured by goblins, and tortured mercilessly. She somehow escaped and later became an adventurer.
She made her mark in history ten years ago by defeating the Demon Lord. In particular, she put an end to the machinations of an order known as the Evil Sect. Even ten years later, the group is no closer to summoning their god thanks to her power and influence.
Having heard of Goblin Slayer's achievements, Sword Maiden enlists him and his party to slay goblins infesting the sewers underneath Water Town, the city her temple oversees.
As a former gold-ranked adventurer, Sword Maiden is one of the most powerful humans on the planet, undoubtedly being a master swords-woman. As an Archbishop, she also possesses both religious and political influence.
- As of Volume 7, it is confirmed that Sword Maiden was already blind before they took down the demon lord ten years ago.
