Appearances

~ Prince Caspian ~ (1951)

Wimbleweather joins the Old Narnians at the Dancing Lawn to fight against Miraz. However, no one warns Caspian that giants are not terribly clever. During one battle the Giant Wimbleweather breaks out at the wrong place at the wrong time, causing more damage to his own side than to the enemy. He feels terrible for costing the Old Narnians the battle, and that night in the camp his giant tears splash onto the Talking Mice who had just gotten warm and drowsy. He hurries away from their shrill, angry voices and accidentally steps on somebody's tail, and somebody bites him. All in all, he is quite miserable until he is asked to be one of the Marshals for the duel between Peter and Miraz. He fights during the Battle of Beruna, and, we assume, lives happily ever after.


About Wimbleweather

Wimbleweather is like most giants — eager to help, but not always very helpful. He is honest, humble, and eager to please. He wants to fight for the Old Narnian cause, but his mistakes in following directions often cost the battle. He suffers from guilt over this and simply wants to help in any way he can. When Peter takes pity on him and asks him to be a Marshal for the duel, Wimbleweather is delighted to be of service. Wimbleweather always tries to help those smaller than himself (though the dwarfs to whom he offers a ride wish that they had walked instead!).
