Leaf is one of the children of the forest in service to the last greenseer. In the television adaptation Game of Thrones she is portrayed by Octavia Alexandru in Season 4 and Kae Alexander in Season 6.

Appearance and Character

Leaf is one of the children of the forest. She has nut-brown skin dappled like a deer's with paler spots, and large ears. She has large liquid gold and green eyes which are slitted like a cat's eyes. Leaf's hair is a tangle of brown, red and gold, autumn colors, with vines and twigs and withered flowers woven through it. She wears a cloak of leaves.[2]

Bran Stark thinks that from far away Leaf looks no older than himself or his sisters, Sansa or Arya, but close at hand Leaf seems far older.[3] Her voice is high and sweet, but also sad.[2]


Leaf was born in the time of the dragon and walked the world of men for two hundred years to watch, listen, and learn. She might be walking still, but her legs were sore and her heart was weary, so she turned her feet for home.[2] She is the only one of the children in the cave of the three-eyed crow who speaks the Common Tongue of Westeros.[3]

Quotes about Leaf

That was not Arya's voice, nor any child's. It was a woman's voice, high and sweet, with a strange music in it like none that he had ever heard and a sadness that he thought might break his heart.[2]
