Aunt Lucy is Paddington's aunt and Pastuzo's wife. She and Pastuzo were found by an English explorer named Montgomery Clyde. She later cared for Paddington after his parents died when he was a cub. After Pastuzo's disappeared in an earthquake, she sent Paddington off to London while she resided in the Place for Retired Bears in Darkest Peru. Paddington often writes to her about his family in London.
