[Home]Nina

Diana Wynne Jones Wiki Home | RecentChanges | Preferences

Nina Carrington is Polly's flamboyant, boisterous friend in Fire And Hemlock. It is on her instigation that Polly gatecrashes the funeral at Hunsdon House.

Nina loves being the center of attention, and, like her mother, has a propensity to gossip, which is the cause of some serious quarrels between her and Polly. She wears glasses and is plump as a child. As a teenager, she loses a lot of weight and develops an impressive figure ("Nina looked good and knew it"); she dyes her hair various colors, dresses in the most outrageous fashions, and becomes obsessed with boys. She goes through various crazes while Polly knows her -- superstitions, the Doors, ecology, disco, even Mozart.

She is romantically linked to Leslie Piper.
