Cythera of Naxen, born Cythera of Elden (pronounced SITH-er-ah of NAKS-enn) is a Tortallan noblewoman. She is married to Sir Gareth, the heir to the dukedom of Naxen. She is the mother of four children by Sir Gareth, Gilmyn, Zenoby, Jaquetta and Geoffrey of Naxen.
Cythera of Elden was trained to be a lady and was presented at court when Alanna of Trebond was a squire. She was present when Alanna fell through ice in what was thought to be an attempt to kill her. Cythera was considered to be the most beautiful lady at court, although she has since been replaced in this position by Queen Thayet.
Cythera has been given the position of social secretary of the Queen.
Lady Cythera has ash-blond hair and blue eyes. She is described as being extraordinarily beautiful.
