List of Narnian Creatures

List Of Narnian Creatures

Narnian creatures are any non-human inhabitants of Narnia, the fantasy world created by C. S. Lewis as a setting for his The Chronicles of Narnia. This is a series of commentaries on the creatures of Narnia. Entries include information on physical, habitual, and behavioural elements of the creatures, as well as noting any important members of the species. Each commentary draws on specific references and citations from the books and officially sanctioned Disney films. Many animals that are found in our world are also present in Narnia, and some species include talking variations. At the birth of Narnia, Aslan the Lion stares at certain animals and breathes upon them. This enabled them to think and talk in a manner similar to humans, and also altered their size (MN). Smaller Talking Beasts – such as rodents, birds and small mammals – are generally larger than their non-talking counterparts, whereas larger Talking Beasts are generally smaller than average. There is never any mention of talking fish or insects, although there are Naids, or water-spirits. Lewis freely drew on various sources for inspiration; the creatures contained in this list include many from classical mythology and English folklore.
