Who are you?

With a nod to Camille’s site, this is rather a fun little test.

I came up as Caspian: “As Prince Caspian you are a noble, goodhearted but mischievous scallywag! Fun loving, you are admired for your easy going nature.”

  1. As Eustace Scrubb, you may have a bit of a short fuse, but ultimately you can be caring and loyal. You also have a thing for girls called Jill.

  2. You’re in good company. Chris came up as Eustace too. 🙂 We had a good laugh over that one.

  3. Funny. I always thought we had some similarities. I say that both for Chris and for Eustace, so the test itself isn’t too far off the map.

    But my favorite character has always been (other than Aslan, of course)Edmund.

  4. Really? Why Edmund?

  5. I can’t speak for the bard, but I always identified with Edmund because he screwed up so royally. Yeah, messing up is definitely something I can identify with.

  6. There wasn’t a female character that I really felt tied to–Lucy was too timid and Susan to “grown up.” I tended to waver between Caspian and Peter. Those were always my favorites. For a girl that I really identified with, we have to turn to Tolkien’s Eowyn. I have read and reread her passages so many times that I feel like I would know her at sight if I ever met her.

  7. Edmund screwed up, but Edmund changed. That makes all the difference in the world.

    Overall you have a point–Lewis’s characters are not as deep as Tolkien’s, but the books are very different.

  8. Yes Bard, you’re absolutely right. He screwed up and then changed. That’s crucial.

    I mean, come on let’s face it. Edmund is us. Screws up. Saved by Christ/Christ-figure. Christ/Christ-figure dies in his place. Then changes.

    And Monica, YOU identify with a Tolkein character? I would’ve never guessed. *cough*wedding dress*cough*

  9. Once again, you are right on, Ben. I identify with Edmund for much the same reason I identify with the apostle Peter. I do like Eustace (a.k.a. “useless” as the aging Trumpkin called him in The Silver Chair) but no so much as I do Edmund. The part in Prince Caspian, where Edmund votes with Lucy and says that she must have seen Aslan may be one of the most underappriciated parts in the series.

    Lucy is too good and sweet. Susan is too stuffy. Peter isn’t developed that well and when he is he seems (to me) a bit distantly heroic–someone to admire, but to to relate to or to hold in true awe.
