Loulou appears in the 11th game, Curse of Blackmoor Manor. She is a parrot that John Penvellyn brought back to Blackmoor Manor from his travels in the Amazon. She is very old by the time Nancy Drew visits the Manor- about eighty years old according to Mrs. Drake. She is voiced by Lani Minella.

Biography Edit

At some point early in her life she was found in the Amazon by John Penvellyn and brought back to his home in England, Blackmoor Manor. He was very close to her; he even had her portrait painted with him sitting on his shoulder. They enjoyed playing word games together, which John later incorporated into a door puzzle hidden in one of the secret passageways. Every now and then she would grow sullen and refuse to play unless she was told that he was "a very, very clever and beautiful bird.”  She appears to enjoy making spooky noises to scare new visitors, such as Nancy, and likes to quote a variety of media such as the movie Jaws. She can translate Latin phrases and even give hints about Nancy's case. Sometimes she’ll refuse to give hints until Nancy brings her a cake, which can be made using the Krolmeister oven in Jane's room. Be careful though; parrots have delicate constitutions and she can be poisoned by certain ingredients, which will result in Loulou getting sick and Nancy getting kicked out of the game. At some point she had offspring and has at least one grandson, Coucou, who can be found in Ransom of the Seven Ships. ==Literary Origins== Loulou is a direct reference to a parrot of the same name in Gustave Flaubert's 1877 story Un coeur simple. In the story, Loulou is the pet of the main character, Felicity, who is a servant girl. Felicity's mistress, Madame Aubain, frequently yells at her, 'Felicity, the door, the door!" and Loulou learns to imitate her. 

Appearance Edit

Loulou is primarily green with a few red feathers on her wings and yellow feathers covering her head. She is likely a yellow-headed parrot, also known as a double yellow-headed amazon.
