Mate of Wild Cat Captain of Firefly. Dragon Island Sea Bear. Nancy Blackett is a character in nine of the twelve juvenile novels in Arthur Ransome 's Swallows and Amazons series. She is a bit of a tomboy;acting as captain of the dinghy Amazon and usually directing her friends in their various adventures. Nancy apparently has no real-world counterpart as an inspirational source for Ransome but appears to be completely the author's creation.

Nancy is sometimes viewed as a subversive character for girl readers, suggesting an alternative choice to feminine domesticity. The character appeared in a BBC television adaptation of Swallows and Amazons as well as in a film adaptation of the book. Nancy is the elder of the Amazon Pirates. An imaginative and lively girl, she lives with her younger sister Peggy and her widowed mother in a large Lake District house called Beckfoot.

Peggy reveals that "Nancy" is actually a nickname derived from her affection for pirates: her real name is Ruth, but she changed to Nancy as their Uncle Jim points out that pirates are "ruthless. She captains a sailing dinghy called Amazonand frequently uses nautical or piratical words in her speech: Jibbooms and bobstays or the classic shiver my timbers.

Nancy usually takes the lead in any adventures, and creates fantasies and adventures, eg climbing Kanchenjunga in Swallowdale instead of just a local mountain. She is a prime instigator even when she is prevented from taking direct part in the action; in Winter Holiday when she is quarantined with mumps, or when their Great Aunt Maria comes to stay and Nancy and Peggy have to be home for meals.

At the beginning of Swallowdale when the Amazons escape from Beckfoot, Nancy and Peggy want to talk as they were both tired of having only each other as listener. Titty and Roger decide to go exploring, and as Nancy and Peggy are louder than John and Susan they can only hear Nancy and Peggy as they get further away, and then the last voice they hear is Nancy's: Then they heard even Nancy's talk no more, though now and then, faint and far away as it was, there was no mistaking her cheerful laugh SD4.
