Beverley Brook is the Genius loci of the London river with the same name.[1]

She is a confident, intelligent woman who appears as a physically attractive 20 year old with dreadlocks. She currently lives in an inherited London townhouse on Beverly Avenue, and is a student at Queen Mary University reading Environmental Science.[2] 

Personality Edit

She enjoys spicy food and t-shirts with assorted sayings printed on them. She has demonstrated an interest in cars-- especially Nightingale’s Jaguar--and has destroyed several since meeting Peter Grant.  

Due to her frequent trips underwater her mobile phone is carried in a waterproof case and she owns a purple neoprene wetsuit.[2][3] 

Early Life Edit

Her original, human form was found floating in the brook by the Kingston Vale dual carriageway.[4] During the events of Foxglove Summer she tells Peter she used to run away from her home and go to the river. [3]

When she joined Peter Grant in the search for two missing girls she is estimated to be 20 years old.[3] However her real age is unknown as genius loci can appear older or younger than their years. She does appear deferential to her older sisters: Tyburn, Fleet, and Effra.


She had been in an intimate relationship with Peter Grant since the events in Foxglove Summer.

She has an affinity for some types of people from the demi-monde, particularly Molly and Mellissa Oswald.

Skills Edit

She was half of the hostage exchange, after the events with Henry Pyke, made to ensure peace between Mother and Father Thames as Beverley went to live with Father Thames and Ash went to live in the city. The exchange took place on Midsummer's eve, at Runnymede.

During the Covent Garden riot she was able to control water in nearby fire hydrants.[5]
