[102] RabadashHuman Prince in Chronicles of Narnia. After failing to court queen susan, he goes to war against a neighboring country of Narnia. But is thwarted by Edmund Lucy and Shasta. Aslan gives the captured Rabadash a chance to repent. When Rabadash refuses, Aslan transforms him into a donkey
[103] Dr. Elwin RansomA middle aged professor who is kidnapped by scientist and adventurer Edward Weston. sometimes called "The Pendragon" or "Mr. Fisher-King". He alone communicates with the good eldila. Back from Perelandra, Ransom is a kingly figure among his small band of followers, and is usually referred to as the Director. However, Ransom notes he did not call the organization together; a higher Power did that.
[104] Reepicheep the MouseHe is a large, dark talking mouse who carries a rapier, and wears a red plume tucked in his golden circlet. He descended from a group of mice who gnawed through the ropes that bound Aslan to the Stone Table after the White Witch had killed him; as a result of their service, they became talking mice
[105] Rilianthe son of King Caspian and the grandson of Ramandu the star. When his mother is murdered he goes off in search of revenge and is captured by the Lady of the Green Kirtle. He was bewitched so that he could not remember anything from before his imprisonment, which he was made to think was a rescue from some unspecified danger.
[106] RomaticismReacted against the Enlightenment’s emphasis on the primacy of reason by emphasizing imagination and feeling, and seeking knowledge through intuition. All of the Inclings subscribed to this in some aspect or another. CSL was greatly influenced by George McDonald in this regard. One example of this is in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, which promotes a ransom theory of atonement that is not Biblical but that was popular in the early Middle Ages. This version states that Jesus’ death was a ransom paid to Satan to set people free, the way you would ransom a captive from an enemy. So Jesus’ life was a ransom for a debt owed to Satan not God. To the surprise of Satan, however, Jesus rose from the dead and won. This is definitely not the Biblical doctrine of substitutionary atonement, yet in Lewis’s story Aslan sacrifices himself to the witch for the life of one boy, and there is no mention of sin or of God’s wrath on sinners.
[107] Wimbleweather RumblebuffinOne is of Deadman's Hill, a not too bright giant. The other is a Giant, turned into stone by the White Witch, and freed by Aslan.

[110] Eustance Clarence ScrubbHe appears in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, and The Last Battle. In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, he is accompanied by Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, his cousins. In The Silver Chair and The Last Battle, he is accompanied by Jill Pole, a classmate from his school. This Character is portrayed as what would today be called a nerd, as well as a bit of a bully (when he can get away with it). It can be gathered from This Character's behavior, and the tone that Lewis used in describing his family and school, that Lewis thought such behavior silly and disliked it a great deal. In fact, at the beginning of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Lucy and Edmund (heroes from earlier books) find This Character unbearable and hate having to visit him and his parents, though that has mostly to do with This Character's arrogant and unfriendly attitude.
[111] Sehnsucht"inconsolable longing" in the human heart for Joy Lewis uses this in many of his books.
[112] The Seven LordsBriefly mentioned in Prince Caspian and are central to the plot in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the second and third published books, respectively, in the series.
