Foxes were an intelligent species that fought on the side of Narnia and the Pevensies.
(From what is known, only one species of fox lived in Narnia, which was that of the Red Fox.)
They are very noble creatures, and are immensely loyal to the great lion Aslan.
The Narnian fox has a much larger body than that of an Earth fox. Its body is elongated, with relatively short limbs. The tail, which is longer than half the body length, is long, fluffy, and reaches the ground when in a standing position. The forepaws have five digits, while the hind feet have only four, and lack dewclaws.
Their fur coats are generally a bright, reddish-rusty colour, with yellowish tints.
They are known for being very agile, capable of jumping over 2 metres high, and can swim very well.
When Narnia was born, foxes were mentioned among the many creatures that were summoned from the ground, and gathered in The First Council of Aslan. They helped chase Andrew Ketterley, when they thought that he might be evil, and for a time kept him as a pet. They were also later seen at the coronation, where Frank I and Helen became the first king and queen of Narnia.
At the end of Narnia's days, during the Battle at Stable Hill, Eustace Clarence Scrubb killed a fox named Slinkey, who had joined the Calormenes, so not all foxes were as loyal or noble as their ancestors were.

Film AdaptionEditIn the 2005 film, a fox helped the beavers and the Pevensies escape the Secret Police by telling Maugrim and his wolves that they had run north, despite nearly getting mauled by them, which gave the five travellers more time to travel to Beruna.
While they did this, the fox travelled around the woods to gather creatures that would fight in Aslan's Army. He was later found by some wolves in the Shuddering Wood, where he was still gathering troops to send to Beruna.
The wolves captured him, and brought him forth before the White Witch, but he refused to tell her anything about the Pevensies or Aslan.When the fox did this, the Witch was about to turn him into stone, only for Edmund, trying to save his life, to end up telling her that his siblings were on their way to the Stone Table, and Aslan was building an army there.
When Edmund did this, the fox had looked at him in sad pity, no doubt in despair that he had given the Witch what she wanted, and also perhaps knowing what was about to happen, just before the Witch turned the poor animal into stone anyway.(Any Narnian would undoubtedly know what the Witch was like, and knew she was not to be trusted. So the fox would know that once she had what she wanted, his life was forfeit.)
Fortunately, the fox was resurrected by Aslan's healing breath, and was most likely part of the reinforcements who helped turn the tide of the First Battle of Beruna.
He was later seen at the Pevensies' coronation, where they became the new monarchs of Narnia, standing next to a mountain lion.
(The lion's face had a comical moustache and glasses drawn upon it, which had been done by Edmund, who had done that while the lion had been stone, when he had visited the Witch's castle.)
