The Giver

She is Jonas's and Asher's friend, and was assigned to be a Caretaker of the Old in her community. It was revealed she had red hair when Jonas had started seeing colors.


When Matty asks Leader (Jonas) if he ever loved a girl, leader tells him there was a girl once, when he was young. Matty questions her fate, and Leader replies that she changed.

Film Adaptation

  • Because in the movie light eyes have nothing to do with the Receiver of Memory, Fiona has light eyes instead of dark eyes.
  • In the movie adaptation of "The Giver", Fiona is portrayed by Odeya Rush.
  • Fiona is 16 in the film, instead of 12.
  • Since Larissa is taken out of The Giver movie, there is no longer a need for Fiona to be Caretaker of the Old, so she is a nurturer .
  • Fiona is adapted to be a love interest for Jonas in the movie and assists him with his and Gabe's escape. She is later apprehended for this and is nearly released before Jonas gives the memories back to the community.
