Violet Baudelaire was the eldest Baudelaire child. She was 14 years old, right-handed, had a real knack for inventing and building unusual devices. When Violet Baudelaire tied up her hair like that, it was a sure sign the pulleys, levers and gears of her inventive mind were working at top speed.
Klaus Baudelaire was the middle child and only boy. He was a little older than 12 and wore glasses, which made him look intelligent. He was intelligent.
Sunny Baudelaire was an infant, a word which here means “a person of the age at which one mostly speaks in a series of unintelligible shrieks”, so most people had trouble understanding what she was saying. What Sunny lacked in communication skills, however, she made up for with the size and sharpness of her four teeth.
Lemony Snicket was deeply in love with Beatrice Baudelaire, yet when she and her husband were killed by the tale’s antagonists, his telling of the events that followed showed full support for the children. Well, to the greatest extent he could while pursued by the same villains. Snicket’s love was eternal, but so was his respect for the woman he loved and her choices. And that is why Lemony Snicket is 8000 times better than Severus Snape.
