Chlorr of the Mask
is a character of Garth Nix's Old Kingdom series. She was an ancient and powerful necromancer and Free Magic sorcerer. At the beginning of Lirael, she approaches Hedge at the Red Lake, with the aim to command Hedge, as well as the power under the hill (Orannis). However, when she communes with Orannis, It binds Chlorr to Its will instead. For the rest of the series, she is a servant of Hedge. She wears a bronze mask over her face, giving her the name. She and Sabriel came into conflict early in Lirael, but Chlorr was defeated, bound, and sent into Death. She returned as a member of the Greater Dead.

Towards the end of Abhorsen, Mogget speaks to Lirael about Chlorr, saying "...even when she was an A--alive." foreshadowing a deeper past. This past is discussed in greater depth in the fourth book in the series, which is entitled Clariel: The Lost Abhorsen. Chlorr, then referred to as Clariel, was the daughter of one of the Abhorsen's children, as well as being distantly related to the King. Her mother ran away from her home; she claims that her brother had been possessed by a Dead creature, and that she had been forced to kill it, but her father refused to believe this. Both she and Clariel had the Fury, but unlike Touchstone, they had a much harder time controlling it.
