Ishmael • “Omeros held up a deck of playing cards he had found, but Ishmael convinced him that a deck of cards was likely to lead to gambling, and he dumped his item into the sleigh.”(pg.78) • Ishmael is a unjoyful being which does not want fun items on his item and he always has an excuse for why something is not of use without another item.
Klaus • “Klaus took his glasses out of his pocket, where he had put them for safekeeping, and was relieved to see they were unharmed.” pg(29) • From this we can tell that Klaus is caring for others besides himself. Klaus likes to keep his glasses safe and we can tell this because he’s taking them from his pocket from safekeeping.
Count Olaf • “You three are really quite slow-witted”. The villain said(pg.20) • Count Olaf is very slow
Kit Snicket • “Kit cried from the top of the raft.” • Kit is an very emotional person • We can tell this because in this quote It details that she is crying on top of a raft
“The Baudelaire's had pushed the large, wooden boat off the roof of the Hotel Denoucement in order to escape the fire engulfing the hotel, as well as the authorities who wanted to arrest the children for arson and murder.” pg(3-4) The Baudelaire’s set fire to Hotel Denoucement. The Baudelaire’s get stuck with Count Olaf on the same wooden boat but, meanwhile inside Hotel Dunoucement V.F.D. agents had been in the hotel when it caught fire.
“Floating in a particularly filthy part of the water, stretched flat out on his back with his harpoon gun leaning across one shoulder, was Count Olaf”.(pg.31) The Baudelaires get caught in a storm and Count Olaf falls off the boat but the Baudelaires manage to stay on the boat.
“They often traveled at night, when the sun would not give them sunburn and when the coastal shelves in the area in which they lived were not flooded with water.”(pg.176) These characters were known as nomads. They had lived on the coastal shelf because they had been banished from the island.
“Weyden and Ms. Marlow stepped toward the villain, wrestled the harpoon gun from his hands then dragged his toward the bird cage, the Baudelaire’s were unsure exactly how they felt but on the other hand they had waited their entire lives for someone to punish Count Olaf for his dreadful acts”.(pg.132-133) • The author is Omniscient and all-knowing. • In this quote the author gives us his opinion on the character Count Olaf • His opinion is villainous and dreadful.
“It is useless for me to describe to you how terrible Violet, Klaus, and even Sunny felt in the hours that followed.”(pg.23) • The narrator finds it very useless for him to tell you how the Baudelaires felt.
“The Baudelaire's were in the dark about the mystery of their own lives, which is why it was such as a profound shock to think at last that these mysteries might be solved.”(pg.194) • This shows that the author is all knowing because he knows the detailed words like were in the dark. • Only an all-knowing narrator would know if it were dark or light about.
