!! Peter Pevensie
[[quoteright:266:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/800px-Peterprincecaspianmovie_5917.jpg]]

The oldest of the Pevensie siblings and the High King of Narnia. He tries his best to protect his other siblings and to act like a responsible young adult. In the book it is implied that he is more mature than his other siblings because, after their father was called out to fight in the war, it was left to Peter by his mother to support his three siblings though the ordeal of their father going away.\\
\\
Played by WilliamMoseley in the film adaptation.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the book, he is dark-haired, while in the movie he is fair-haired.
* AlliterativeName
* {{Badass}}: Especially in the movie.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Especially towards Lucy, to whom he seems especially close.
* [[BlitzEvacuees Blitz Evacuee]]: Evacuated to the countryside along with his siblings in ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe''.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: In the movie adaptation of ''Prince Caspian''.
* {{Determinator}}
* {{Expy}}: He's an allegory of [[Literature/TheBible Saint Peter]], but High King instead of Pope.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Cynic, and at times, The Realist. He and Susan often trade places.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Choleric
* GenreSavvy: In ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'' his familiarity with fantasy stories serves him fairly well, prompting him to, for example, trust the robin which leads the Pevensies to Mr. Beaver, because robins in stories are always good creatures.
* TheHero
* HotBlooded: Especially in the movie version of ''Film/PrinceCaspian''.
* ICallItVera: His sword Rhindon.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: In the ''Last Battle''.
* TheMagnificent
* ParentalFavoritism: Or in this case brotherly favoritism, as ''Prince Caspian'' flat-out states that Lucy is his favorite sister.
* ParentalSubstitute: He has to basically replace his father for the younger siblings (perhaps just Lucy) during World War II.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Edmund and Susan's cold blue, in the movie. When compared to Edmund, he's definitely the vibrant, determined, impulsive one of the two, and he is, to an extent, more sensitive than Edmund who is logical, stoic and [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] even after his HeelFaceTurn. The books mention that King Peter was a brash man, less wise than the cold-thinking King Edmund who represented [[JusticeWillPrevail justice]].
* RedBaron: Peter Wolfsbane.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: For instance, he's absent from ''the Horse and His Boy'' because he's off beating up a bunch of troublemaking giants.
* SiblingYinYang: With Edmund and Susan.
* StandardizedLeader
* TeamDad
* TookALevelInBadass: As depicted through the course of ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'' and especially the final chapter, in which he grows from a kid to a warrior king.

!! Susan Pevensie
[[quoteright:266:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narnia2_5061.jpg]]

The elder sister and the second eldest Pevensie child. She is crowned to the Radiant Southern Sun as Queen of Narnia by [[{{God}} Aslan]], and shares the monarchy with her brothers Peter and Edmund and her sister Lucy. She later becomes known as Queen Susan the Gentle.\\
\\
Played by Creator/AnnaPopplewell in the film adaptation.

* ActionGirl: In the movie.
* ActualPacifist: In the books it is stated that Queen Susan hates violence and (unlike Lucy) avoids going to war.
* AdaptationalBadass: In the movies.
* AgentScully:
** In ''The Last Battle'', she's the only visitor to Narnia who now denies it ever happened. Some readers believe this and [[spoiler:the ending]] indicate that she will not be allowed into Aslan's country when she dies; others say that this view misreads Lewis' intent.
** In the movies, she's skeptical to almost every fantastic event that takes place at the beginning of the [[Film/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe first film]]. When Edmund leads them to hide in the wardrobe, she says "You've got to be joking." There are also other similar lines:
--->'''Susan:''' He's a beaver. He shouldn't be saying ''anything''.
** And:
--->'''Susan:''' Logically, it's impossible.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She has a cooler demeanour than her siblings, especially in comparison to Lucy.
* ArcherArchetype: She's the graceful, elegant, ladylike kind of archer. Her bow was a gift from Father Christmas, and she became a famously skilled archer as Queen, yet hated to fight or use her skill in battle. One of the ways the Pevensies prove their identities to Trumpkin in ''Prince Caspian'' is by Susan beating him in a target-shooting contest.
* [[BlitzEvacuees Blitz Evacuee]]: Evacuated to the countryside along with her siblings in ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe''.
* BookDumb: By ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'', it is stated that she is not a particularly good student.
* BrainyBrunette: Subverted. She may seem capable in ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'' and ''Prince Caspian'' (especially the movie adaptation). But by ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader', it is stated that she is not a particularly good student and that she is regarded as the pretty one of the family.
* TheConscience
* DeadpanSnarker: In the movie.
--->"He's a beaver. He shouldn't be ''saying'' anything!"
* DemotedToExtra
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Realist, and at times, The Cynic. She and Peter often trade places.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Primarily Melancholic, but very Choleric at times as well
* TheHighQueen: Queen Susan the Gentle.
* InformedAttractiveness: In at least two books, Susan is said to be beautiful, and her looks drive a couple of subplots. There's one ''very'' easy to miss reference to Susan's hair being black, and nothing else about her appearance is described anywhere.
* LadyOfWar: In the movie.
* {{Ojou}}
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Lucy and Peter's red. Susan is more calculated, calm and down-to-earth than the [[{{Tomboy}} tomboyish]] Lucy and extroverted, impulsive Peter.
* SiblingYinYang: With Lucy and Peter.
* TheSmartGirl: Only in the ''Prince Caspian'' movie. Certainly not in school, where she's said to be more of a PassionateSportsGirl.
* [[spoiler:SoleSurvivor: The only Pevensie not killed in the train station accident in ''The Last Battle''.]]
* TeamMom
* TenderTears: When Aslan dies.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Lucy's Tomboy.
* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: In Narnia, at least.
* {{Xenafication}}: In the movie adaptation of ''Prince Caspian''.

!! Edmund Pevensie
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skandar_8505.jpg]]

The second of the Pevensie children to go to Narnia. He betrays his siblings to the [[BigBad White Witch]] while [[ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil under her influence]], but as the story goes on he accepts the error of his ways. He is redeemed with the intervention of Aslan and joins the fight against the Witch. Fulfilling an ancient prophecy, he becomes King Edmund the Just, King of Narnia and, with sisters Susan and Lucy, co-ruler under High King Peter.\\
\\
Played by SkandarKeynes in the film adaptation.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the Pauline Baynes illustrations, he's blond. In the movie, he's black-haired.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling
* AntiHero
* {{Badass}}
* BadLiar[=/=]ConsummateLiar
* BeingEvilSucks: He realizes this, after he is tricked by the White Witch, which brings his HeelRealization.
* BerserkButton: Eustace constantly manages to piss him off in ''The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader''.
* BiblicalBadGuy: He was meant to represent none other but ''[[http://pillars2discuss.blogspot.ro/2006/01/judas-and-edmund.html Judas himself]]''.
* BigBrotherBully: He constantly bullies his sister Lucy, out of "spite" in ''The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.''
* BigBrotherInstinct: He develops this later for Lucy.
* BlackSheep: In the first part.
* [[BlitzEvacuees Blitz Evacuee]]: Evacuated to the countryside along with his siblings in ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe''.
* CallMyName: He and Lucy constantly call each other's name in the movie adaptation of [[Film/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader the third part]], especially when they're separated from each other.
* CharacterDepth: Edmund stands out as being the most complex character from the siblings and from most protagonists. Even though he [[HeelFaceTurn redeems himself]] in the first part, he still has many traits that make him quite different from the [[AntiHero typical hero]]. There is a full page dedicated to his [[http://narnia.wikia.com/wiki/Edmund_Pevensie/Personality personality]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Over the course of the first two books, we see him move from a bullying jerk to an outright traitor to a much nicer person.
* DeadpanSnarker: Perhaps the biggest one in the series prior to his HeelFaceTurn.
* FaceHeelTurn: In the first book, Edmund betrays his siblings. [[WordOfGod C.S.Lewis]] intentionally made Edmund to represent [[BiblicalBadGuy Judas Iscariot]] as Edmund betrays Aslan (who represents [[{{God}} Jesus/God]]) and his siblings (The Apostles) to the White Witch (a SatanicArchetype) for Turkish Delight, which is a synonym for the silver that Judas betrayed Jesus for. Fortunately, [[HeelFaceTurn Edmund doesn't end up like Judas]].
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Apathetic
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic, even though you can't tell until the second half of the first movie.
* HeelFaceTurn: Starting with realizing that BeingEvilSucks and that the White Witch is a sadistic {{Jerkass}}, he rebels against her and returns to his siblings' side.
* {{Jerkass}}: In ''The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe'', especially when he betrays Lucy by lying that he never was in Narnia.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: In the first half of the first book.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Afterwards.
* KidsAreCruel: He bullies Lucy in ''The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe''.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: In ''The Last Battle''.
* KubrickStare: [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9y9xyuCYX1qgnixfo2_400.jpg In the movie version]].
* TheLancer
* LovableTraitor
* MeaningfulName: A ShoutOut to Shakespeare of all things. Like the character Edmund in Theatre/KingLear, he betrays his brother and later redeems himself.
* TheMole: In ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'', Edmund listens in on his siblings' conversation with the Beavers, then goes to turn over all he learned to the White Witch.
* TheNotLoveInterest: He fulfills this role for Lucy in ''Voyage Of The Dawn Treader'', as they have only each other when they are sent away to their ignorant, uncaring relatives. They depend on each other and constantly look one after the other, as they are practically alone in an unwelcoming place. Plus, during the entire book, they become the closest siblings of the main four, as Edmund's main and most important priority is [[BigBrotherInstinct to take care of Lucy and keep her safe]], as well as for Lucy, who looks for her brother. So, basically, they are the most important persons to each other.
* PerpetualFrowner: He does this a lot in the movie version.
* PetTheDog: In ''Prince Caspian'', Edmund takes care to support Lucy's claims about seeing Aslan so he can make up for being mean to her in the previous book. Also, in the third part, he gets into the [[BigBrotherInstinct protective, older brother mode]].
* PragmaticHero: Especially when compared [[TheHero to the chivalrous, idealistic Peter]]. Edmund has a more cold-natured thinking, a sharp mind and logic. He is rarely driven by emotions and is mostly collected and down-to-earth, having an acute sense of justice, going to the point where he becomes unsympathetic towards enemies and downright cruel, as opposed to Peter, who is more impulsive and emotional. This is proven when Peter battles Miraz, because Edmund tells Peter not to be chivalrous and to strike Miraz. The scene suggests that, if Edmund had been in Peter's place, he would not have hesitated and would have killed Miraz in a heartbeat. This is one of the reasons he is considered an AntiHero.
-->'''Edmund:''' Now is not the time for chivalry, Peter!
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Peter and Lucy's red. The books say he was the silent, wise, cold-thinking king who represents [[JusticeWillPrevail justice]], as opposed to Peter and Lucy, who are impulsive and extroverted.
* ReformedButNotTamed: Due to his [[DeadpanSnarker snarkiness]], [[DeathGlare death glares]], and his temptation to beat the crap out of [[{{Jerkass}} Eustace]].
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: With Lucy, a brother-sister example. The book describes that the adult Edmund was a silent, wise, collected man who had a cold judgement, while Lucy was a wild, bright, tomboyish girl, driven by impulse. Their movie versions are close, since Edmund is a witty DeadpanSnarker while Lucy is a joyous PluckyGirl.
* SiblingRivalry: Between him and Lucy, in ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'', due to the fact that Edmund torments her. Fortunately they grow out of it.
* SiblingYinYang: With Peter and Lucy.
* TheSmartGuy: He is definitely more level-headed and logical than Peter and Caspian. He was also known as 'the wise king' during the Golden Age.
* TheStoic: Most of the time in ''Literature/PrinceCaspian'', but he has his [[NotSoStoic moments]] too.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: In the movie.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil: The things he does after he eats [[GRatedDrug counterfeit Turkish Delight]].
* TookALevelInBadass: In ''Prince Caspian'' TheMovie ''and how''.
* TroubledButCute
* TheUnfavorite: In the Pevensie family, in the first book, especially to Peter. This is due to [[{{Jerkass}} his behavior]].
* UnwittingPawn: Edmund to the White Witch, in the beginning. After having his pride wounded by Peter, he transforms from this into TheMole.
* VillainProtagonist: In ''The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe''. He even has a [[VillainSong villain soundtrack]].

!! Lucy Pevensie
[[quoteright:261:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/large-georgie-henley_5136.jpg]]

The youngest of the four Pevensie children, and the first to find the Wardrobe entrance to Narnia in ''The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe''. Of all the Pevensie children, Lucy is the closest to Aslan. Also, of all the humans who have visited Narnia, Lucy is perhaps the one that believes in Narnia the most. She is ultimately crowned Queen Lucy the Valiant, co-ruler of Narnia along with her two brothers and her sister. Lucy is the central character of the four siblings in the novels.\\
\\
Played by GeorgieHenley in the film adaptation.

* ActionGirl: She's good with archery and fights like a man.
* AdaptationDyeJob: She is fair-haired in the book, but has somewhat auburn, light brown hair in TheMovie.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Edmund in ''The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe''.
* ArcherArchetype: As a queen, she rides and fights with the archers in Narnia's army. Though regarded as tomboyish, she gets to do what she wants because hey -- she's the queen.
* BadassAdorable
* BadassPrincess: More like badass queen.
* [[BlitzEvacuees Blitz Evacuee]]: Evacuated to the countryside along with his siblings in ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe''.
* CallMyName: She does this with Edmund many times in ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader''.
* TheChick: Especially in ''The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader''.
* CombatMedic: She is skilled both with her bow and her healing cordial.
* CoolBigSis: To Aravis. In the film version of ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'', she becomes this to Gael.
* CuteBruiser
* {{Determinator}}
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Justified in ''Voyage of the Dawn Treader'' as she kicked off her shoes in the middle of ocean to be able to swim easier. She is shoeless for the first part of the book until she gets a pair or so at the Lone Islands. In ''Prince Caspian'', it's explicitly stated that she prefers to go barefoot.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Optimist
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Sanguine
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Blonde in the book, Lucy is the youngest and most innocent of the Pevensie children. Her special relationship with Aslan can be seen for example in ''Prince Caspian'' when initially nobody but her believes enough to see him.
* IJustWantToBeBeautiful: It is revealed in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'' that Lucy envies Susan's beauty and popularity.
* [[IJustWantToBeYou I Just Want to Be Susan]]: In the film version of ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader''.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: In '' The Last Battle''.
* LittleMissBadass
* TheNotLoveInterest: With Edmund in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader''.
* OutdoorsyGal
* PluckyGirl
* ThePollyanna
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Susan and Edmund's blue.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: With adult Edmund, who was a silent, wise and down-to-earth man, who had a cold judgement, as opposed to the adult version of her, a bright, wild, tomboyish girl, driven by impulse.
* SiblingRivalry: Between her and Edmund in the [[Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe first book]], due to [[BigBrotherBully Edmund]]'s tendency of tormenting her.
* SiblingYinYang: With Edmund and Susan.
* TenderTears
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: In the books, Lucy is contrasted to Queen Susan the Gentle as a {{tomboy}} who rides to war with her brothers and fights like a man.
* TomboyPrincess: A Tomboy ''Queen''.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: In ''The Horse And His Boy'', she talks with Aravis about dresses and girly things.
* YoungestChildWins

!! Eustace Scrubb

[[quoteright:341:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Eustace_dawntreader_945.jpg]]

The Pevensie's annoying younger cousin. He first appears in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader''. He fancies himself (not entirely without reason) to be rather intelligent, and considers this a valid reason for nurturing an arrogant attitude toward his cousins. He accompanies Lucy and Edmund on their third trip to Narnia. Upon learning that Narnia is real, his feelings toward it go from amused disdain to fear and outright hatred. It isn't until [[spoiler:transforming into a dragon (long story) and having Aslan change him back by breaking the curse that his attitude towards Narnia and his cousins change for the better.]]

He later appears as the main character in ''The Silver Chair'' and as one of the main characters in ''The Last Battle''. In these books, his adventuring companion is his friend, Jill Pole instead of his cousins.\\
\\
Played by Will Poulter in the film adaptation.

* AntiHero: Type I or III in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader''.
* AscendedExtra
* [[spoiler:BalefulPolymorph]]
* BeetleManiac: "Eustace Clarence liked animals, especially beetles, if they were dead and pinned on a card."
* BrattyHalfPint: It's extraordinarily difficult not to hate him until his CharacterDevelopment finally kicks in.
* TheBully: Pre-development, it's hard to find him having a nice word for anyone.
* ButtMonkey: Throughout most of ''Dawn Treader'' up till his CharacterDevelopment.
* CharacterDevelopment: Like Edmund before him, Eustace becomes a much better person as his adventures in Narnia make him aware of his failings.
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Diary}}: With entries chock-full of SelfServingMemory.
* FantasticRacism: Towards the animals, but especially Reepicheep.
* FlatEarthAtheist: For the first half of the third book.
** Amusingly quite literal in this case, since he's an (implied) atheist in a definitively flat world.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Cynic
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Melancholic
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]
* InsufferableGenius: Except he's not as smart as he thinks he is.
* {{Jerkass}}: At his beginning, he was even worse than Edmund at this (though unlike him, he never betrayed the others, but since "Dawn Treader" had no actual villain...). Fortunately, he improves.
** Although, despite his worse {{Jerkass}} attitude, Edmund points out that Eustace isn't nearly as bad as he during his first trip to Narnia, considering the fact that he was a traitor.
* KidsAreCruel
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: In the ''Last Battle''.
* {{Narrator}}: In the Walden Media Adaptation.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Jill.
* SelfServingMemory: Excerpts from his {{Diary}} in ''Dawn Treader'' portray him as tragically put-upon by arrogant prigs who willfully refuse to see him as the voice of reason in every situation. [[UnreliableNarrator Of course.]]
* SpoiledBrat: It's discussed that he's such a pill [[spoiler:prior to his HeelFaceTurn]] because of vapid educational and parenting philosophies that over-indulged his sense of self-importance.
* TookALevelInBadass: In ''The Silver Chair''. The film of ''The Voyage of The Drawn Treader'' takes this a little farther and [[spoiler: lets him fight in dragon form]].
* UnfortunateNames: ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'' memorably begins, "There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." Later in ''Literature/TheSilverChair,'' he's introduced with, "His name unfortunately was Eustace Scrubb, but he wasn't a bad sort."
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Heights?]]: It is mentioned in ''The Silver Chair'' that Eustace is afraid of heights, causing him to overreact when Jill goes too close to the edge of a cliff.

!! Jill Pole

Eustace's companion throughout The Silver Chair. Aslan gives her the task of remembering the Signs that lead them on their journey.

* ActionGirl
* CharacterDevelopment: Develops a much better sense of direction in the last book, whereas she had previously been known for having a poor sense of direction.
* {{Claustrophobia}}
* FireForgedFriends: With Eustace.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: In the ''Last Battle''.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Does it around the giants so they wont suspect anything.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Eustace.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: She is skilled in "woodcraft" (tracking and moving quietly through forested areas), as noted by King Tirian in ''The Last Battle''; Eustace credits this to her time as a Girl Guide, but no doubt this was supplemented by her travels and experiences in ''The Silver Chair''.
* ScoutOut: Averted; Jill is flat-out called a member of the Girl Guides and has various skills enhanced by her membership, namely tracking and archery.
* TookaLevelInBadass: Between The Silver Chair and The Last Battle.

!! Digory Kirke
Introduced in ''The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe'' as an old man ("the Professor"), with whom the Pevensies have been billeted. Eventually turns out to have a {{Backstory}} connected with that of the wardrobe, as revealed in ''The Magician's Nephew''.\\
\\
Played by Jim Broadbent in the film adaptation.

* AbsentMindedProfessor: In ''The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'' and ''The Last Battle''.
* AuthorAvatar: C.S Lewis essentially wrote Diggory's journey to save his mother as a happier alternative to his own life.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Digory to Uncle Andrew, throughout the entire book.
* CatchPhrase: "What ''do'' they teach them in these schools?"
* CoolOldGuy: A magical land in a wardrobe? Well, why not? (Of course, in ''The Magician's Nephew'' the reader learns he knew the truth all along, and was just pretending he didn't know about Narnia.)
* {{Expy}}: Of Adam in Literature/TheBible, except Polly (Eve) is trying to ''stop'' him from ringing that bell.
* GenreSavvy
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: In ''The Last Battle''.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Responsible for awakening Jadis.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Polly Plummer.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Asks Peter and Susan if Lucy is the sort of girl who makes up stories and, if not, whether that might indicate she's telling the truth.
* RedOni: Spends a lot of his time in ''The Magician's Nephew'' falling into scrapes and pulling Polly with him.

!! Polly Plummer

Introduced as Digory's neighbour in ''The Magician's Nephew'' and is caught up in Uncle Andrew's plot [[spoiler: and transported to The Wood Between the Worlds]], starting the main adventure of the book. Returns in ''The Last Battle'' as a 'Friend of Narnia'.

* AlliterativeName
* BlueOni: Definitely more level headed than the impulsive Diggory.
* CoolOldLady: In''The Last Battle''.
* GirlNextDoor: Not in the romantic sense but she does fit the characteristics of the type as a friendly, down to earth, childhood friend. Also lives over the wall to Digory. (Its even how they first meet).
* FireForgedFriends: Her and Digory. ''The Last Battle'' reveals they remain in contact their whole lives.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]: In ''The Last Battle''.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Diggory Kirke.
* PluckyGirl: Doesn't bat an eye at the existence of different worlds and happily gives Jadis a piece of her mind throughout the book.
* TheSmartGirl: Frequently.
* {{Tsundere}}

[[folder:Narnians]]
!! Fledge (Strawberry)
A 19th-century draft horse who may be the ''only'' character from Earth to wind up in Narnia [[ContrivedCoincidence by accident.]] He is twice transformed by Aslan during ''The Magician's Nephew.''

* CoolHorse / {{Pegasus}}: After his ''second'' transformation.
* TalkingAnimal: After his ''first'' transformation.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Fledge becomes 'the father of all flying horses,' but none of his progeny appear in any subsequent book. Not necessarily sinister, since the world of Narnia is large and there are only seven books.

!! Mr. Tumnus

A faun and typical citizen of Narnia in the age of the Hundred-Year Winter, Mr. Tumnus is the first Narnian to encounter a human being, [[spoiler: at least since the last humans descended from King Frank and Queen Helen were driven out of Narnia at the beginning of the Witch's reign.]]

Portrayed by JamesMcAvoy in the film.

* {{Bookworm}}
* DontTryThisAtHome: Under ordinary circumstances, it is not advisable for a little girl who is wandering alone to agree to go off to a total stranger's home.
** And to be fair, it was very nearly a bad idea for Lucy to wander into his home.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Lucy.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In ''The Horse And His Boy.''
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Lucy is more curious about him than frightened, and he goes on to become her closest Narnian friend.

!! Bree

A Talking Horse born in Narnia abducted and brought to Calormene, where he was treated as a normal horse.

* BeastOfBattle
* MilesGloriosus: He feels himself unusually brave. Eventually he breaks himself of this habit after a wiser character says he's been comparing himself to ''normal'' horses, "and you could hardly help being braver than them."
* OldSoldier: During his time in Calormen he served as a war-horse in the Tisroc's army and apparently was the veteran of several campaigns.
* [[SlaveMook Slave Mooks]]. Well kind of by definition being a warhorse. But on the other hand he was an aristocrat's warhorse so he was not just a mook.
* TalkingAnimal

!! Caspian X (the Tenth)
[[quoteright:266:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/caspian12_8946.jpg]]

King of Narnia, Lord of Cair Paravel, and Emperor of the Lone Islands, also called Caspian the Seafarer and Caspian the Navigator (born 2290–died 2356, Narnian Time) was one of the greatest leaders of the Narnian Empire who took part in the successful Narnian Revolution and began the Age of Exploration. Caspian was descended from the Telmarine Dynasty, but unlike his ancestors he chose to ally with the indigenous Narnians (talking animals, satyrs, fauns, centaurs, etc.) instead of persecuting them. Succeeded by his son Rilian.\\
\\
Played by Ben Barnes in the film adaptation.

* AdaptationDyeJob: He is described as fair-haired in the books. However, since [[spoiler: the Telmarines are descended from pirates and the native tribe of an uncharted island on Earth]] the choice to portray him as dark-haired and Hispanic stands to reason.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* AProtagonistShallLeadThem
* {{Badass}}: While he is still new to it in ''Prince Caspian'', he does have his moments. By the time of ''The Voyage Of The Dawn'', he is a self certified {{Badass}}.
* CharacterDevelopment: From a hesitant but trustworthy ruler-to-be, to a skilled FatherToHisMen seafaring captain to a just and noble king. Not bad Caspian, not bad at all.
* DashingHispanic: In the movie, he comes off as this. Bonus points on Ben Barnes basing his characterization on Inigo Montoya, a Dashing Hispanic himself.
* DawsonCasting
* DistractedByTheSexy: In the movie version of ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'', by Lilliandil, Ramandu’s daughter.
* MrFanservice: Especially in the movies.
* TheHero
* HeroicVow: Caspian made one at his coronation to search for the seven missing lords. ''The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader'' takes place during that journey.
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: Towards Edmund in ''The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader''.
* MoreHeroThanThou
* ReluctantRuler
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* SecondaryCharacterTitle
* SheatheYourSword: Used in the movie version of ''Prince Caspian'', when Caspian, after seeing an entire squadron of Telmarine assassins downed by something underfoot, is himself tripped and set upon by the unseen assailant... Reepicheep the Mouse. Reepicheep orders Caspian to retrieve his sword and face him in honorable combat, as he refuses to kill an unarmed man. Caspian's reply: "Then I'll live longer if I don't." Reepicheep doesn't have infinite patience, though, so this tactic doesn't last Caspian forever.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: In the movies.
* WhatTheHellHero: Caspian in his pride wants to stay at the end of the world; the entire crew and even Aslan calls him out on abandoning his responsibilities and promises. In the film version, Caspian is very much tempted by the prospect of staying at the end of the world to the point of [[ManlyTears crying]], but he realizes that his father wouldn't have wanted him to throw away the kingdom his father died for.
* TheWisePrince
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Towards Miraz.

!! Reepicheep

Swashbuckling talking mouse devoted to honor and chivalry. Yet behind his ferocity is a [[IndexWithAHeartOfGold Heart Of Gold]].\\

* {{Determinator}}: “My own plans are made. While I can, I sail east in the Dawn Treader. When she fails me, I paddle east in my coracle. When she sinks, I shall swim east with my four paws. And when I can swim no longer, if I have not reached Aslan’s country, or shot over the edge of the world into some vast cataract, I shall sink with my nose to the sunrise…”

* HeroicVow: To find Aslan's country in ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader''.
* [[BruiserWithASoftCenter Mouse With A Soft Center]]
* [[HonorBeforeReason Honor WAY Before Reason]]: For example, his first instinct when hearing of a dragon nearby is to challenge it to single combat. Later in the book, he jumps into the ocean because he thought a Mer-king was challenging him.

--> '''Caspian:''' "You may say what you like, Reepicheep. There are some things no man can face."

** Not that he wears armor.

!!Trumpkin

* TheCynic
* SourSupporter: Tends to be pessimistic, doesn't believe in the old legends or that some old horn can summon help, or that mythical kings can make a return, or even that the resistance can win, but is fiercely loyal to Caspian and goes to an old ruined castle to see if said mythical kings return there because Caspian asked that someone do it.
* UnusualEuphemism: All of his swearing is creative nonsense.

!!Puddleglum

A Marsh-Wiggle who lives in marshes and is perpetually gloomy and pessimistic. He guides Eustace and Jill in Literature/TheSilverChair.

* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: He's assigned to Jill and Eustace rather than seeking out heroics on his own.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Determinator}}
* DeterminedDefeatist: Everything is going to turn out horribly. The prince is of course already dead, we're all going to die instead of finding him, that food was surely poisoned, we're out of water, and we're going to freeze to death out here tonight. [[TheDeterminator Oh well, no point in delaying the inevitable: on we go.]]
* TheEeyore: He's lugubrious to a preposterous degree, yet claims that other Marsh-Wiggles call him a hopeless optimist. We see more of this in Underland, where, the text notes, he proves a steady rock for the children to cling to in the face of crushing depression. Perhaps it's that he remains at a ''steady level'' of lugubriousness regardless of the circumstances?

[[folder:Calormenes]]

!! Shasta

Shasta grew up in poverty in some nameless fishing village in Calormen, the son of an abusive fisherman named Arsheesh. When his father decides to sell him into slavery, Shasta overhears that he was adopted and decides to run away. Over the course of ''The Horse and His Boy'', he grows up (somewhat), teams up with runaway princess Aravis, and saves Archenland from the greatest danger it had ever faced. Only at the end does he learn that he's [[spoiler:the long-lost Prince Cor, son of King Lune of Archenland. He was abducted as a baby and taken to Calormen in a (vain) attempt to avert the prophecy that he would save the country]]. He eventually married his one-time traveling companion Aravis, and [[spoiler:the two ruled together once King Lune died.]] Their son was [[spoiler:King Ram the Great.]]

* BarefootPoverty: To his suffering.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Aravis.
* BigDamnHeroes: He pulls this twice. The first time when he rushes to protect Aravis and Hwin from what he believed was a hungry lion chasing after them. The second one was when he ran non-stop, after having been through almost a whole book's worth of shit -— most recently a potential suicide mission through a desert -— to warn King Lune about the impending invasion.
* ABoyAndHisX: Inverted -- Bree seems to regard Shasta as ''his'' pet.
* ChangelingFantasy: Shasta, a peasant orphan, turns out to be [[spoiler:the long-lost prince of Archenland]]. Atypically for the trope, Shasta is quite dismayed because, being [[spoiler:the eldest twin]], he'll be ''forced'' to [[spoiler:rule as king]], and his brother is only too happy to be relieved of the responsibility.
* ExactEavesDropping
* AFriendInNeed: When Shasta tells the horse that he really needs someone who could tell him whether the nobleman is evil, Bree reveals his ability to speak to tell Shasta exactly that. Which gives Bree the opening to suggest that they could run away together.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: At least in the Pauline Baynes illustrations he is portrayed as having blond hair, and he had the wholesome and kind aspect down pat. He's described by the Tarkaan who tries to by him from Arsheesh as being "fair" (like the cursed barbarians of the North).
* HappilyMarried: To Aravis.
* MadeASlave: What Shasta is fleeing.
* TheMasochismTango: He and Aravis end up HappilyMarried. If "happily" means "having constant arguments, making up, and then arguing again."
* [[spoiler: MosesInTheBullrushes: Shasta aka Prince Cor.]]
* NiceGuy
* SlapSlapKiss: With Aravis, and canonically no less.
* TrueCompanions: His devotion to his own is uncontested. Made all that much clearer when out of sheer loyalty he jumps off Bree’s back to face down a freakin' lion, who's actually Aslan, chasing Aravis and Hwin.

!!Aravis

A young Tarkheena, a female member of the ruling nobility of Calormen. She ran away from home with her talking horse, Hwin, in order to escape an ArrangedMarriage to an old man.

* BadassPrincess
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Shasta.
* BreakTheHaughty
* DefrostingIceQueen: Towards Shasta.
* AFriendInNeed: Hwin reveals she can talk just when Aravis needs her the most.
* GildedCage: This trope was the fate that Aravis was running from.
* HappilyMarried: With Shasta.
* InfallibleNarrator: Aravis recounts her entire backstory like this, and Bree explains that Calormenes are taught story-telling in school. She isn't entirely infallible, either; by the standards of her culture, she colors her narrative with painful amounts of Purple Prose, even when recounting what another character, who is present, said - causing the said character to comment that she didn't say it in nearly as fancy words
* InterruptedSuicide: Aravis in her back story, contemplating forced childhood marriage to an old man. Hwin stops her and convinces her to run away instead.
* TheMasochismTango: She marries Shasta, though there's still plenty of fighting.
* NiceToTheWaiter: {{Averted}} as part of Aravis's CharacterDevelopment: she drugged one of her servants in order to escape. When Shasta asked what happened to the servant, Aravis casually speculated that she was whipped for it. Shasta pointed out that this was hardly fair to the servant, which Aravis coldly rebuffed. Aravis did get her just deserts when Aslan attacked the party as a lion and slashed her back, giving her the same wounds as the servant received.
* RebelliousPrincess
* RunawayFiance: When her father [[ArrangedMarriage arranges her marriage]] to [[OldManMarryingAChild a hump-backed, sycophantic old man many times her own age, when she's only about 12,]] she "steals" a horse and runs away from home, intending to flee the country.
* SamusIsAGirl: Though the confusion happens at their first meeting, at night, and is cleared up quickly.
* SlapSlapKiss: With Shasta, and canonically no less.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Lasaraleen's Girly Girl.
* TomboyPrincess
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She and Queen Lucy meet they start talking about dresses and girly stuff.
* {{Tsundere}}
* WellExcuseMePrincess: This defines her relationship with Shasta from the very beginning. Their first words to each other: "Why, you're only a girl." "And you're only a boy. A rude, common little boy. A slave probably who's stolen his master's horse!"
* WickedStepmother: Aravis had one.

!! Prince Rabadash

The oldest son of the Tisroc (the Calormene king). A very impulsive and childish man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. After Queen Susan refuses to marry him, he plans to conquer Narnia, but is defeated during an attempt to conquer Archenland.

* HumiliationConga: A very good example that went on for the rest of his life. [[spoiler: During the battle for Archenland, he gets stuck on a hook on a wall. He demands to be released in order to duel King Edmund, but is denounced as a traitor, due to attacking during peace time. After this, he was put on trial for his treachery and was given multiple opportunities to redeem himself, but kept threatening his captors. As punishment, Aslan temporarily turns him into a donkey, but tells him that if he went more than 10 miles from the temple, he will be permanently transformed into one. Since this prevents him from waging war, he is known as Rabadash the Peaceful during his rule as Tisroc. But after his death, he is known to history as Rabadash the Ridiculous and the expression 'Second Rabadash' is also used for students who act incredibly stupid.]]

[[folder:Others]]

!! Aslan

''The Great Lion'', a talking lion, King of the Beasts, son of the Emperor-Over-the-Sea; a wise, compassionate, magical authority (both temporal and spiritual); mysterious and benevolent guide to the human children who visit; creator, guardian, and savior of Narnia. The author, Creator/CSLewis, described Aslan as an alternate version of Christ—that is, as the form in which Christ might have appeared in a fantasy world.\\
\\
Played by LiamNeeson in the film adaptation.

* {{Badass}}: He kills the witch.
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead]]: Just like [[spoiler:Jesus]].
** Inverted: Aslan is [[spoiler: an allegory for Christ]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''The'' most sure way of dealing with either a villain or a hero tempted to the dark side is for Aslan to give a show of force, which tends to terrify hero and villain alike...and He's more than willing to back it up with action if necessary (as the Witch found out).
* [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Hero]]: Comes roaring (literally) to the rescue in the battle at the end of ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'', with Lucy, Susan, and everybody they rescued from the Witch's castle. Lucy is very disappointed in ''Prince Caspian'' when he ''doesn't'' do the same.
* BigGood
* ButNowIMustGo
* TheChessmaster: Even when things don't go perfectly according to his plan (e.g. when Jill forgets the signs he had given her in ''The Silver Chair'', he still manages to accomplish his goals.
* TheChooserOfTheOne: Aslan chooses who enters Narnia (and would be the kings and queens), and picked the children.
* DeusExMachina: He spends the entire series behind the scenes, spinning the adventure and coming before them only when they need him most. He comes in during the last battle in ''Literature/PrinceCaspian'' to help the Narnians win after they began to lose hope.
* [[spoiler: DisneyDeath]]
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity]]
* {{God}}[=/=]{{Jesus}}
* GoodIsNotNice: To the villians, but also the protagonists.
* HolyIsNotSafe: It's pointed out a few times that he's not a "tame" lion.
* KingOfBeasts
* KungFuJesus
* MeaningfulName: His name means 'lion' in Turkish.
* MessianicArchetype
* TheOmniscient
* PantheraAwesome
* RealityWarper: Basically [[ThePowerOfCreation creates Narnia]] and can teleport people to places at will. He chooses not to abuse his power.
* [[spoiler: SacrificialLion]]: [[LiteralMetaphor A literal example.]]
* TalkingAnimal
* [[CrystalDragonJesus Talking Lion Jesus]]: Though unlike most examples he's not merely an equivalent. Instead it's hinted that he literally ''IS'' Jesus.
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself

!! Jadis, The White Witch

Jadis, commonly known as the White Witch, is the [[BigBad main villain]] of ''The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe''. Jadis also appears at length in ''The Magician's Nephew'', which concerns her origins and the origins of Narnia. She is the Witch who froze Narnia in the Hundred Years Winter.\\
\\
Played by TildaSwinton in the film adaptation.

* AboveGoodAndEvil: Jadis thinks she's exempt from morality just because she's magical and special. "Ours is a high and lonely destiny."
* AdaptationalBadass: The film adds a sword fight with Peter, where she parries all his strikes with contemptuous ease and seems to mostly be toying with him, until [[TheCavalry Aslan]] arrives and she starts to get desperate.
* AdaptationDyeJob: The original design for Jadis is pale skin and dark hair. However, the recent revamp for the film franchise has a blonde portraying her. Everything else about her (the red lips, the pale skin, and her outfit) are the same.
* BigBad: In ''Wardrobe'' and ''The Magician's Nephew'', at least (arguably ''The Silver Chair'', if the Lady of the Green Kirtle is indeed supposed to be a reincarnation of Jadis); after that, she is little more than a bad memory. However, the movies seem to be giving her a much greater presence post-mortem.
** Particularly ''Dawn Treader,'' which the [[ExecutiveMeddling scriptwriters insisted]] had to have a villain. Apparently it's not a spiritual journey without a BossBattle.
* BlessedWithSuck: After biting the Silver Apple, gains immortality but intensifies her misery.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: In "The Magician's Nephew," she points out torture chambers, dungeons, and locations of massacres in Charn as casually as if they were minor tourist sites.
* CainAndAbel: Fought a long and bloody civil war against her sister for control of their kingdom that culminated in the destruction of their ''entire universe''.
* CompositeCharacter: She is based on four characters in fiction: {{Satan|icArchetype}} from John Milton's ''Paradise Lost'', Ayesha from ''She'' by Rhyder J. Haggard, the Snow Queen from Hans Christian Anderson's fantasy story of the same name, and the Queen of Babylon from the ''Story of the Amulet'' by Nesbit. The mythological character of Lilith was also an inspiration for her character and Jadis is said to be descended from her in the stories.
* CrystalDragonJesus: The [[SatanicArchetype Satan version of this]], though in ''The Last Battle'' Tash elbows her out of that role.
* DarkActionGirl
* DoesNotLikeShoes: ''The Magician's Nephew'''s illustrations shows her barefoot.
* DualWielding: [[MagicKnight A wand and a sword]] in TheMovie.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: In the books, her hair is black and her skin is literally white "like snow, or paper, or icing sugar," clearly intended to look creepy and unhealthy. Not true in the movies, in which she is blonde and has a more or less natural skin tone.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Plunges Narnia into an infinite winter in which neither spring nor Christmas ever occur.
* EvilOverlord
* EvilSorcerer
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Literally.
* HoistByHerOwnPetard: Her insistence on demanding Edmund's life, and her gleeful willingness to kill Aslan in Edmund's place, leads to her defeat thanks to her ignorance of the Deeper Magic beneath the Deep Magic she invokes.
* HumanoidAbomination: She's an immortal monster who's destroyed ''an entire universe'', turned [[{{Arcadia}} Narnia]] into [[{{Mordor}} a frozen wasteland]], appears human [[UncannyValley until you take a good look]], and [[SatanicArchetype became Narnia's very own Satan in the end]].
* IceQueen
* InTheBlood: She mentions that one of her ancestors has single-handely slaughtered over seventy nobles, because some of them had rebellious thoughts. Apparently it was normal thing in her family.
* KarmicDeath: AND HOW!!
* LadyOfWar: A dangerous, evil bitch but a graceful one nonetheless.
* LargeHam: In the [=BBC=] adaptation in the 80s.
* LastOfHerKind: The sole survivor of the entire population of Charn, her home universe. [[SelfMadeOrphan She killed all the rest herself.]]
** It came as something of a jar to her when she realized that her magic didn't work elsewhere. [[FridgeLogic Apparently it took her centuries after arriving in Narnia to learn how to manipulate magic there.]]
* LightIsNotGood
* MagicKnight: In the [[FilmOfTheBook film of]] ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'', she went into battle with a sword and a wand of petrification. A pretty nasty combination by anyone's standards, and she put both to pretty good use.
* MysteriousPast: The Beavers tell the Pevensies that she's some kind of djinn-giantess something, without explaining where she came from (presumably they don't know). ''The Magician's Nephew'' fleshes out her origin and past.
* OmnicidalManiac: Via SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum, which [[StayingAlive she survived]]. [[IfICantHaveYou She REALLY doesn't take defeat well]]. Charn is so utterly depopulated that when she, the last living being, is removed, the whole universe collapses into an existential hole.
--> "[[NightmareFuel That world is over now.]]"
* RoyalBlood
* {{Satan}}: She is a representation of the Devil just like Aslan represents God/Jesus.
* SealedEvilInACan: In ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew'' she put herself into suspended animation after destroying her world, and left [[SchmuckBait a way for any visitors to wake her up]], so that they’d take her to a new world.
* TheSociopath
* StatuesqueStunner: She's what, eight feet tall? Nine? And gorgeous, especially before eating that apple and turning paper-white.
* TakenForGranite: Her main method of dealing with her enemies, using her magic wand. [[HumanPopsicle She even did it to herself in the film]].
* TheVamp: For Edmund and Digory. Uncle Andrew has just as strong an infatuation with her, though in his case the reason is not that Jadis is deliberately seducing him like a Vamp; he's attracted to her just because EvilIsSexy, without any deliberate effort on Jadis's part.
* WaxMuseumMorgue: Her entire castle courtyard, filled with statues. Take a wild guess where she got them. Her hall in Charn ''resembles'' this, but the statues are actually just statues in this case -- except Jadis herself.
* WinterRoyalLady
* WitchSpecies: The House of Charn, of which she is the sole survivor. Magicians like Uncle Andrew that [[SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic went by-the-book]] did exist in Charn, but were "[[FantasticRacism inferior]]", and [[FinalSolution were wiped out long ago]].
* WomanInWhite: Not in a good sense.
* WouldHurtAChild
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: As the traditional EvilSorceress, Jadis runs Narnia as she wishes. It does win her a few friends - Talking Wolves, Hags, and the People of the Toadstools, for example.

!! Tash

The primary god of the Calormenes, who unwittingly summoned him to Narnia during ''The Last Battle''.

* TheAntiGod
* EldritchAbomination
* GodOfEvil: So much so that anyone who genuinely believes him to be good, and worships him as such, is actually worshiping Aslan rather than Tash.
* SealedEvilInACan
