Redival is the middle sister of the royal family. She’s beautiful, flirtatious, and empty-headed, but she can also be manipulative and cruel. Before Psyche’s birth, she and Orual are close, and Redival then becomes jealous of Orual’s love of Psyche. This, combined with Psyche’s superior beauty, undoubtedly contributes to her ill-will towards her sister. Redival threatens to tell the Priest of Ungit that the people are worshiping Psyche like a goddess, and when the Priest pronounces Psyche the Accursed, Orual blames Redival. Eventually, Orual retreats from her desire to do Redival as much harm as possible, and when she becomes Queen, she marries Redival to Trunia of Phars. Orual always thinks that Redival has the upper hand in life because of her beauty, but in fact, she is far more miserable than she lets on.
