Jenny Roberts was Odyssey's first blind child character. Her disability gave room for a great deal of discussion on handicaps, joy, and prejudice. She has at least one brother, presumably younger. She had a pen pal, Melanie Jacobs. In the three-part episode The Perfect Witness, she was kidnapped from Holstein's Books and made use of her heightened senses of smell and hearing to help catch the criminals. She moved to Odyssey to attend the Connellsville School for the Blind.

In #318: “A Touch of Healing, Part 1” she is Jason Whittaker's first guinea pig in a program that would disabled children to do things they can't in the real world. Because it had been so long since she could see the program didn't work for her.


  • She enjoys The Chronicles of Narnia
