About Her

Living… in Professor Digory Kirke’s mansion in the English countryside. Susan and the other Pevensie children were evacuated from London to escape the Nazi air raids, and as the oldest girl in the family, she is trying hard to fill their absent mother's shoes.

Visiting… the wondrous world of Narnia. Through the back of a magic wardrobe is the magical kingdom of Narnia, a world that has sadly been plunged into perpetual winter by the White Queen. Here, evil watches and lies in wait for the Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve.

Profession… student and child. Susan tends to forget the latter, though, since she's in a hurry to grow up.

Interests… becoming an adult. On Earth, this meant hovering over her siblings and learning vocabulary from dictionaries. In Narnia, however, adulthood takes a darker turn, and Susan must learn archery and healing in order to stay alive.

Relationship Status… single. Susan’s still a child, but since she's considered the beautiful one in her family, there's no doubt she'll have many suitors when she is older.

Challenge… going back home with her brothers and sister. Susan is not fond of change, and landing in Narnia when she just wanted to hide in the wardrobe is just the kind of impossible change that she can’t stand. Her siblings may want to explore this hidden world, but Susan would prefer to go home, where she can be warm and safe.

Personality… motherly and practical, if occasionally unimaginative. Often the voice of caution, Susan's suggestions are often sensible, but she expects the world to follow the same rules she does. As a result, she's reluctant to accept things that don’t make sense: “he’s a beaver," she exclaims upon meeting one of her first Narnians, "he shouldn’t be saying anything!” She cares for well being more than heroics, and if that makes her unadventurous, so be it – Susan would rather her siblings be cowards than dead heroes.
