Orual appears before the judge in the court in the mountain when she presents her complaint against the gods. She can’t tell if the judge is male or female, as it’s entirely veiled in black.

This makes sense, since she need only see herself more truly to understand that her case against the gods is ridiculous.
The timeline below shows where the character The judge appears in Till We Have Faces. The colored dots and icons indicate which themes are associated with that appearance.
