The Crow
General Information
Occupation Red Bishop

The Crow is a fictional character from the novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll. It is taken from the traditional English nursery rhyme, Tweedledum and Tweedledee.


The Crow is listed in Through the Looking-Glass' dramatis personae as the Red King's bishop,[1] but Alice never encounters it over the course of the story. According to the rhyme, it is "black as a tar-barrel" and of a monstrous size. The Tweedle brothers are terrified of the Crow, and when the pair see the White Queen's shawl being blown around by the wind at the end of Chapter Four, they mistake it for the dread bird and flee through the woods. The Jubjub Bird in the 2010 movie could be a reference to the crow since it frightened the tweedles and was black (albeit striped).
