Prince Caspian Chapter 12 Summary
Sorcery and Sudden Vengeance
Meanwhile, Trumpkin takes the boys into Aslan's How. As they travel deeper into the dark tunnel, they hear loud voices echoing off the stone.
They choose to listen for a moment.
Nikabrik is arguing with Caspian that the dwarves unfairly suffered the brunt of Miraz's latest attack. He also argues that the horn didn't work. A Plan B is in order.
Before getting to Plan B, Caspian wants to know who these "friends" of Nikabrik's are.
They introduce themselves with some pretty intimidating speeches, but it comes down to one being a hag and the other a werewolf.
As for that plan, Nikabrik aims to resurrect the other great power from Narnia's past: the White Witch.
The others try to point out how bad idea of an idea this is, but Nikabrik defends it, believing the dwarves never had it as good as when she ruled.
Dr. Cornelius mentions that the White Witch is dead, but the Hag counters that witches don't really die.
A battle ensues, and Trumpkin, Peter, and Edmund leap in to assist. When the chaos settles, Nikabrik and his companions are slain.
Peter introduces himself to Caspian and promises to help the prince claim his rightful throne.
He then orders Nikabrik's body given a proper burial while the others can be flung into a pit.
Afterward, they sit down for a breakfast of a "bit of cold bear-meat […], a lump of hard cheese, an onion, and a mug of water" (12.87).
But no apples.
