The Deptford Mice Wiki

Halia was a sea maiden, one of the daughters of the king under the sea.


The creature Halia most resembles is a mouse, but with fin-like ears. She has golden hair, and grey fur which flashes in light like the bright silver of a fish's scales. Her eyes are sapphire blue in colour.


Halia is haughty, vain, and mean-spirited. She begins to taunt Woodget Pipple and Thomas Stubbs when she notices them admiring her, scorning them for their lack of knowledge about undersea life. She refers to Thomas as a triton and calls Woodget a worm, with the latter especially resenting his new nickname. Halia also mocks her sister Zenna, urging her to come to the surface of the water so the two mice can see how gloomy and plain she supposedly is.
