These are three of the main characters in Blackwater, Brodie, Pauline and Otis. Here are a few things about the characters and what they are like.
Is a thirteen year old girl who enjoys bats and also watching them. Brodie and John think Hannah is weird and strange. In the story Brodie pulls Pauline Geniros leg because he is jealous that she is kissing Otis. Otis tries to keep Pauline on the rock but he falls into the Blackwater too. Brodie thinks that Hannah wrote a note to try and persuade him to come up and tell the truth. Hannah is a bit suspicious and she creeps around a bit.
Is also a thirteen year old who is threatened by notes he is receiving after manslaughter. At first he wants to be honest and tell the truth but his little cousin Alex is making it worse for him telling everyone he didn’t do it. Brodie asks Hannah if she was sending him the notes she said yes and then Brodie was convinced to tell the truth.
Is Brodie’s younger cousin who witnesses Brodie pulling Pauline’s legs. He is actually quite sly when he lies to the police telling them that Brodie tried to save them when he saw them fall in. Alex really wants him and Brodie to be friends but it is never going to happen.
