Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details from the latest book.

Lady Gisela is part of the Sencen family and is Keefe's mom, as well as Lord Cassius's wife. She is also part of the Neverseen, as stated in Everblaze.


Lady Gisela is described as very beautiful, with pale peach skin and blonde hair, which she usually keeps in intricate updos. She has a red wound on her shoulder from when Keefe hit her with a goblin throwing star after she attacked Sophie, Keefe, and Silveny in Exile. Her name, Gisela, is a form of the name Giselle. This name means "hostage" or "pledge". This could refer to the fact that she pledged her allegiance to the Neverseen. It could also refer to how she became a hostage to them.


She is cold, acting with little to no emotion. In Flashback, it is said that she would crack “if she let her hair down or gave a true smile.” She does care about her son (albeit in a cruel manner) which is shown when she wants him to complete his legacy. She also does not meddle with Keefe's genetics, which gives substantial evidence that he is not created to be Sophie's nemesis. Gisela is ruthless but also ambitious, doing whatever it takes to complete her goals. In Flashback, Sophie and Fitz look into Keefe’s memories, she appears cruel to Keefe, along with Lord Cassius.


  • Keefe (Son)
  • Lord Cassius (Husband)
  • Sophie Foster (Enemy)
  • Fintan (Ally)
  • Vespera (Reluctant Ally)
  • Umber (Dead Ally)
  • Ruy (Real Ally)
  • Trix (Ally)
  • Tam Song (Kidnapped into fake reluctant ally)
  • Alvar (ally)


Lady Gisela is a known Polyglot and is very skilled at mimicking, teaching Keefe how to mimic as well. She also has a photographic memory, and she's an Empath, as revealed by Vespera in Book 6, Nightfall.

It is revealed that Lady Gisela is part of the secret ( and evil ) organization called the Neverseen. At first Keefe believed his father was part of this group. Later, he realized it was his mother when the Black Swan and the Neverseen fought on Mount Everest.


It is unknown exactly what happened to Lady Gisela after Everblaze, but it was assumed she was tortured and maybe killed by the Ogres after two gnomes saw her being dragged away by two ogres in a horribly beaten state. During Neverseen, Keefe regains a memory that Lady Gisela erased about her involvement with a secret plan called the Lodestar Initiative.


Lady Gisela helped Sophie find her parents throughout Nightfall in return for favors. In the end, Lady Gisela forced Vespera to ally with her.


Lady Gisela leads the Neverseen and follows Vespera's plan at the time of the eclipse. She later appears threatening the alicorns and invites Tam to join the Neverseen.
