How does Lyra not recognize Lord Boreal???

I still don't understand how Lyra does not recognize Lord Boreal at first. Sure they had like a 2 second conversation at Mrs. Coulter's cocktail party, but I think he left to big of an impression to have been forgotten.

There was a lot going on at the time of the cocktail party...

But also you have to remember that the events of TSK happen several weeks, probably even a few months after the cocktail party, accounting for the narrow boat trip from London to East Anglia (~100 miles in a boat that does 5mph tops) and a voyage by ship to the north (south-east england to scandinavia).

Two or three months is a long time when they had only a brief conversation at the party...

^impossible to remember a lot of names and faces in a few seconds.

Wonder if it wouldve made a big difference if Lyra had recognised him?

I think if Lyra had recognized him there wouldn't have been any other books. Will would not have gotten the Subtle Knife, and Lyra and Will wouldn't have become the great friends they become.
