The Confusing Questions

This is a sort of mini biography to the Series of Unfortunate Events, where Lucia Snicket delves into her ancestors past to discover the truth of a range of characters that made up the popular series of books her brother, Lemony Snicket wrote.


3. Violet Baudelaire


Violet Baudelaire is probably one of the most caring, kind and intelligent teenagers I know. While having probably the worst childhoods in the world, Violet keeps her sweet and polite nature, and while having an enormous natural talent she has never once boasted. One of the most puzzling aspects of this amazing girl is what was her life like before the books or after the books? Well I can tell you all I know, so I hope this answers your queries.

Violet’s birth date is still unknown, but what we do know that Violet was 14 in the first 10 books, and turns 15 in the 11th book.

At this point it is probably best to mention that after the Baudelaire’s parent’s death the orphan’s were left behind an enormous fortune and estate, which started the tragic events looped on and on during the Baudelaire’s lives.

When Violet was 5, she won her first invention competition with a fantastic automatic rolling pin. She used a window shade and six pairs of roller skates. This clever invention earned her a gold medal and a compliment from the judge, who bet that Violet could "invent something with both her hands tied behind her back." Around her tenth birthday, she invented a special pencil sharpener. Before the death of her parents, she enjoyed visiting the Verne Invention Museum and its many exhibits, including one of the mechanical demonstrations that had inspired her to be an inventor when she was just two years old.

Count Olaf’s first initial plan involves marrying Violet in a ceremony made to look like a play, The Marvelous Marriage. As Violet’s husband, Olaf would have control over her entire estate, including the fortune. Thankfully, Violet signs the marriage certificate with her left hand instead of her right. Since she is right-handed, Violet has not signed the document in her "own hand," thus voiding the marriage. After Violet and her siblings defeat Olaf’s first treacherous plan, he and his associates escape.

By the end of the series she is most likely 16, but sadly Violet’s existence is still unknown. Violet's favorite book is The Life of Nikola Tesla, and she has a strong allergy to peppermints, which she shares with her siblings Violet grows itchy hives if she eats them. She does not like the song, "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" because of the part, "Life is but a dream". It brings back to many bad memories and it explains her and her sibling’s life too disturbingly. At the end of the series, she, Klaus, and Sunny adopt Kit Snicket's baby daughter, Beatrice Baudelaire. In The Bad Beginning, My brother describes Violet as having pleasant facial features, like her siblings. She hates the color pink and finds the color lavender a sickly color, as mentioned in The Wide Window.

Violet and her siblings adopt Kit Snicket’s child, Beatrice, after Count Olaf and Kit Snicket died. The fate of her and her siblings is unknown as they left the island with the baby girl. As mentioned in The Hostile Hospital and The End, despite all of Lemony’s research and hard work, even he still does not know the current location, position and status of the Baudelaire children, though a poster from The Beatrice Letters shows the remains of the ship showing Violet's ribbon amongst the debris. While it is stated in a special version of The Bad Beginning that Violet returned to Briny Beach a third time, implying her survival, but this is unconfirmed. Their boat, The Beatrice, sank when they were close to the mainland as the boat is seen torn up on some sharp rocks. It is possible that she is dead, despite the statement by Beatrice in The Beatrice Letters that Violet survived. It is also possible that her entire estate, including the fortune, was ultimately destroyed.
