Lucy Warbeck is one of the background characters in the Tiffany Aching series of books, sort-of-ish written for children. She is one of the coven that Tiffany encounters first in The Wee Free Men, along with Annagramma Hawkin, Petulia Gristle et al. By the third book (Wintersmith), she has become a recognised witch, and is in training to become a Witchfinder like Miss Perspicacia Tick.

Even at this young age, the new generation of witches are developing the sort of amusing eccentricities and character quirks which can only get more marked as they grow older. For whatever reason - eccentricity, forgetfulness or perhaps just boffo - young Lucy meticulously makes up her hair every morning whilst incorporating a knife and fork into her coiffure. And don't you just know, in seventy years' time, Old Mistress Warbeck will be seen as weird by a new generation of witches, and the knife and fork won't even be noticed any more by her peers...
