The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe Terms
An allegory is a story whose characters, events or setting represent another meaning, often an abstract meaning.
Aslan is the Lion King of Narnia and its’ founder. He is both powerful, frightening, gentle and loving. He appears when Edmund is in danger and vanquishes the White Witch. At the end, he crowns the Pevensie children Kings and Queens of Narnia.
This is the castle where the four thrones wait for the Sons of Adam and the Daughters of Eve. They reign there during the Golden Age of Narnia. The castle is very beautiful, with an ivory roof, tapestry hung walls and its’ west door is hung with peacock feathers.
The centaur is one of the nine classes of Narnian creatures. They are both human and animal, with bodies like ‘huge English farm horses’ and heads and chests like ‘stern but beautiful giants.’
Lucy’s cordial is a strong, sweet wine, made from the juice of the fire-flowers that grow in the valley of the sun. It is one of the gifts Father Christmas gives to Lucy. It has healing powers.
Words of Deep Magic are inscribed on the Stone Table. Deep Magic symbolizes the ultimate right and wrong, and has existed since the dawn of time.
Deeper Magic from Before the Dawn of Time
This is magic the White Witch does not understand. Only Aslan fully comprehends it. It is a mercy that surpasses human understanding.
Edmund is the third of the Pevensie children, and he is inclined to tease, sulk, grumble and hold grudges. He undergoes a transformation of his character as the result of his trials at the hands of the White Witch. He is later called King Edmund the Just.
Emperor Beyond the Sea
Aslan’s father, and the author of the Deep Magic and the Deeper Magic.
During the Hundred Years of Winter, ‘it was always winter, but Christmas never came.’ The appearance of this huge, bearded man in red robes signals the end of winter and the approach of spring. He brings Peter, Susan and Lucy gifts that will help them defeat the White Witch.
A wolf in service to the White Witch.
A giant who had been turned to stone by the White Witch. When Aslan breathes on his feet and releases him, the Giant helps defeat the White Witch in battle.
The Mother of the White Witch.
The lamppost marks the far western boundry of Narnia. Its’ light burns day and night,and it is one of the first things Lucy sees in Narnia on her first visit through the wardrobe. It is one of the last things the children see as they chase the White Stag, at the end of the Golden Age of Narnia.
Lucy is the youngest child and the first to go through the wardrobe and discover Narnia. She is the child who most cares about the others and she is also the closest to Aslan. She has great courage and is known by the title Queen Lucy the Valiant.
Mr. and Mrs. Beaver
Mr. and Mrs. Beaver welcome the children into their home and give them dinner. The Beavers explain who the White Witch and Aslan are and recite the three prophesies that foretell the coming of the children and the end of the Hundred Years of Winter.
Naiads and Dryads
Peter is the oldest of the four children, and used to sorting out their arguments. He is a natural leader, being both serious and fair. Peter becomes High King of Narnia after the White Witch is defeated.
Professor Digory Kirke
Uncle to the four Pevensie children, he welcomes them into his large country house when they must leave London for their safety during World War II. He is 52, and not married, and the children like him very much because they think he will leave them alone to have their fun. Digory and his next door neighbor Polly are the first to discover Narnia many years before the Pevensie children venture there.
Susan is the second oldest of the Pevensie children and she is not naturally adventurous. She acts as mother to the two younger children. When she ascends her throne, she is called Queen Susan the Gentle.
Satyrs are among the nine classes of Narnian creatures. They are more goatlike than fauns. When Aslan calls for Narnia to awaken, they are among the wood people who emerge.

The Stone Table
A low slab of gray stone, engraved with strange lines and figures of an unknown language. The White Witch calls it a ‘proper place for a killing’ and it is thought to have existed forever. Although the White Witch doesn’t know it, it was decreed before Time began that it would crack when a willing and innocent victim was killed in place of a traitor.
Time in England and time in Narnia do not proceed along at the same pace. Lucy’s first visit to Narnia and tea with Tumnus take hours in Narnian time, yet the other children think she is missing for just a moment. The children rule Narnia for quite a few years, yet when they return through the wardrobe, only a few minutes have passed.
Tumnus, the Faun
Tumnus is the first creature Lucy meets when she steps through the wardrobe for the first time. He has goat-like legs and a long tail, the face of a man, and two horns coming out of his head. He leads Lucy to his cave, and serves her tea. He means to betray her to the White Witch, but having met Lucy, cannot do so. The White Witch turns him to stone for failing to report Lucy to her.
Turkish Delight is a very ancient kind of candy, made of fruit juice, nuts, and gelatin, dusted with powdered sugar. The White Witch feeds a great deal of it to Edmund, who falls under her power.
The White Stag
The children chase the White Stag, a beast of extraordinary beauty, into a thicket where they find the lamppost and make their way back through the wardrobe.
The White Witch
The White Witch rules Narnia, and has brought to it the Hundred Years of Winter. Like the snow she has brought to the land, she is pale of face, and wears white fur. She rides in a sleigh driven by a dwarf and pulled by white reindeer. She is evil and determined to bring about the death of the four children, because prophesies say they will be her undoing.
World Ash Tree
One of the three places where the words of Deep Magic are written. The tree is a mythological symbol for existence.
