Evelyn Blake was a classmate of Emily Byrd Starr.
Evelyn Blake was probably born in Blair Water, Prince Edward Island, to Mr. and Mrs. Blake. When she was probably six years old she started going to Blair Water school. A few years later she met Emily Byrd Starr, who had moved to live at New Moon Farm with her great-aunts. She played a cruel joke on Emily in the middle of the year by drawing a moustache on her face before an exam, and most of her bad deeds are done through jealousy of Emily.
She is described as tall, clever rather handsome, with long, bright treacherous brown eyes. She talks through her nose and is dishonest.
