Gillian Roberts was a close friend of Susan Foreman and John Brent at Coal Hill School.


Susan met Gillian not long after starting going to Coal Hill School. Susan and Gillian began hanging out together and, with the weather gradually getting colder, they began to make snowmen together.

She and Susan would often encounter bully named Francis Minto. "F.M." had a history of destroying the snowmen they made. One day in particular, however, the snowman he attacked did not des integrate, but water came to life, and started attacking him. He was put in the hospital after this ordeal, and Susan and Gillian were punished with detention for a week.

One night Gillian and Susan went off to a club attempting to pass off as adults. There they met Zack, a bike rider who tricked Susan into admitting that they were too young to be there.

Upon turning 16, she left school and left to marry Zack, much to the annoyance of John. (TN: Time and Relative)


She enjoyed giving nicknames to the people she knew. She would often call John "The Martian" and Susan "Forehead." She was also a skilled fighter, often getting into school fights. She found it hard to be greatful for John's father's sacrifice to save her life, calling him "crazy." (TN: Time and Relative)
