Howl Jenkins Pendragon (born Howell Jenkins) is the titular deuteragonist of Howl's Moving Castle.



At the beginning of the movie, he was rather vain, and did not really seem to care about a lot of others besides himself. He was still kind enough to let Sophie clean the castle, and even tried to break the curse on her. Not to mention he had taken in Markl as both his ward and apprentice. As time goes on, he becomes more gentle and caring for everyone, Sophie included.

Physical appearance

Howl is renowned for his stunningly handsome features, and a gaudy sense of style. At the beginning of the film, Howl had blonde hair, but because of an incident while Sophie was cleaning Howl's bathroom, Howl briefly had orange hair, before it turned black. In the book, Howl had naturally black hair.
