Lucy Cunningham-Schultz-Davis was the most recurring child character on Adventures in Odyssey, with over seventy appearances, more than any other child character. Lucy was an ace reporter for the Odyssey Owl, her school newspaper. She worked as an intern at the Odyssey Times and was often considered to be a "goody two-shoes" and was indeed strong and sincere in her Christian beliefs. Her biggest character flaw was that she had a sarcastic streak and could also be prideful at times, though she always owned up to her mistakes. She was frequently the counterpart and moral adviser to her friends Isaac Morton, Sam Johnson, Jack Davis and Curt Stevens. She either lived on Greentree or Lynnwood. When she grew up she married Jack Davis. In A Rathbone of Contention, she lives across town from the Electric Palace.
