Listing all AIW characters

Postby Caucus Race » Thu Jan 29, 2015 3:32 pm

In AIW, the Chapter; 'A Caucus Race and a Long Tale," features a cast of "curious creatures" including a Dodo, a Duck, a Lory, and an Eaglet. but there are far more in the original John Tenniel Illustration. I see the mouse, a parrot, an owl, 2 crabs, a monkey, and a stork. but what is the bird with the puffed up chest? and the two rodents? I'm trying to compile a list of ALL mentioned or seen characters from AIW and TTLG ty c:

I have a fairly thorough list of both AAiW and AATtLG characters (which also had the genders of the characters for a separate query) though it doesn't have all the characters in the pictures of the caucus race as it's based purely on the texts of the two books, plus the nursery alice (i've added in all the cards for you since they seemed unnecessary in my last list)

Other characters (based on illustrations and extrapolation)

Caucus race: -
pigeon
ape
Some sort of small parrot I think
goose
pelican?
Owl
maybe, like, a guinea pig
and another one
(there are others in the background but they are impossible to make out, or to count)

croquet: -
a flamingo each for the cards plus alice and the white rabbit at least
the same number of hedgehogs presumably

courtroom: -
bird lawyer 1 (parrot? Lory?)
bird lawyer 2 (?)
bird lawyer 3 (vulture?)

some of these may overlap with characters in my previous list as they appear in different scenes, but could be the same one, likewise, the opposite may be true, they could be utterly unrelated. i have only done AAiW
