[Home]Martha Hatter

Diana Wynne Jones Wiki Home | RecentChanges | Preferences

Martha Hatter is the youngest of the Hatter sisters in Howl's Moving Castle. Her sisters are Lettie Hatter (middle) and Sophie Hatter (oldest). Of the three, she is the only one who is the daughter of Fanny. She is probably about 14.

After Mr. Hatter dies, when all the girls have to be apprenticed to trades, Martha is sent to be an apprentice of a witch, Mrs. Fairfax. Fanny figures that this will not be too arduous for one of Martha's tender years, and that Mrs. Fairfax's magic and connections will be useful when, as is expected of the youngest of three sisters, Martha sets out to seek her fortune. Lettie and Martha are unhappy with their arranged apprenticeships and using a spell Martha finds, they swap places.
