Aslan’s Country is equipped with an excellent team of moderators and news posters dedicated to keeping you up to date on everything Narnia – as well as ensuring your safety and enjoyment. Without each and every one of them, Aslan’s Country as it is today would not be possible.

Cyclops – news reporter and moderator
Cyclops is a news reporter and forum moderator on Aslan’s Country. He joined the site in 2009 when asked by his good friend Poggin.

He is captivated by C. S. Lewis’ books and the recent film adaptations. His interests include jokes, laughing, mint Tic Tacs, web design, writing fanfiction, animation, computers, filming, and anything Narnia-related.
