!!'''Alanna of Trebond (and Olau)'''

The protagonist of the "Song of the Lioness" quartet, Alanna switches places with her brother to train as a knight despite being a girl. For eight years she disguises herself as a boy, makes friends both among royalty and thieves, as well as some very powerful enemies.

Alanna is a very capable fighter, especially with a sword, and a powerful Mage, though for years she was afraid of using it. She is rash, somewhat arrogant and has a terrible temper.

----
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Lightning, her sword. Helps that magic is involved.
* AbusiveParents: Her father neglected her and Thom after his wife had [[DeathByChildbirth died giving birth]] to the twins.
* ActionGirl: Later upgraded to ActionMom.
* AnimalTalk: With Faithful.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: As the wife of a baron and a regular knight she's relatively low in the noble hierarchy (although the Trebond family is very old and noble). As the King's Champion of Tortall, she speaks with the authority of the Crown when neither the king nor queen is near.
* BetterAsFriends: With Jonathan. They both marry other people, but remain extremely close.
* BlingOfWar: She has gold-washed mail picked out with amethysts for fancy occasions, but she can fight in it if she has to.
* BullyHunter: Alanna is small and weak, but she learns the skill to make Ralon leave her alone for good.
* TheChampion: "King's Champion" is the position given to the best knight in the realm. Post-''Lioness Rampant'', Alanna has held this position as Tortall's first female Champion. At the end of ''Trickster's Queen'', chronologically the last book in the series, she's held it for well over twenty years.
* CombatMedic: In ''In The Hand Of The Goddess'', where she learns to control her healing magic.
* CoolHorse: Moonlight, then later Darkmoon.
* CosmicPlaything: For the Mother Goddess. She doesn't mind as the missions are for Tortall's good.
* [[CustomUniform Custom Heraldry]]: A lioness rampant on a red field.
* FieryRedhead: She has flaming red hair, a wicked temper and, strangely, {{purple eyes}} (which match the colour of her Gift).
* FirstLove: Hers is Jonathan.
* GodWasMyCopilot: Heck, the second book is titled ''In the Hands of the Goddess''.
* HappilyAdopted: Myles adopted her in the third book.
* HappilyMarried: With George. Their daughter sees them as SickeninglySweethearts, as teenagers do.
* TheHero: Of the first quartet. She overcomes internal and external struggles, loves and loses, and her actions help to save her king and country.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Alanna, being a hero herself, was romantically pursued by the three greatest heroes in the story, namely, her WarriorPrince (Jonathan), The King of Thieves (George), and The Shang Dragon (Liam).
* IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship: She says this to George. [[OfficialCouple They ruin it anyway.]]
* KnightInShiningArmor: Seen best when Alanna and her apprentices have to defend the Bloody Hawk tribe from being attacked.
* KnightErrant: Alanna does this in ''The Woman Who Rides Like a Man'' to escape court life and find adventure.
