When his sister dies, it seems like the opportunity for Roderick to gain freedom by burying her. According to Gale, there is a possibility that “Roderick’s malady is a psychological reaction to an incestual relationship with his sister” ( gale ).

He becomes a liar by lying about having been to Narnia and causes conflict amongst his brother and sisters. Peter and Susan do not believe Lucy’s tales about Narnia. Seeing Edmund’s betrayal as a sin, Mühling writes “It is interesting that one consequence of sin is that the children’s relationships are affected (Peter and Lucy) even though they have not all come into contact with the Witch or evil” (Mühling 28). This shows that betrayal not only causes conflict between the betrayer and the persons betrayed, but also amongst the betrayed people.
