Christine is a minor character in the televsision adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale. She is a Catholic nun attempting to flee the Republic of Gilead alongside Zoe, Lyla, Peter, and Erin.

StoryEdit

Before Gilead Edit

Almost nothing is known about Christine's life before the rise of Gilead, except that she was a nun; presumably, this is why she was attempting to flee to Canada.[1]

After the takeover Edit

Christine and her group are en-route to the Canadian border when they stop at a small town to retrieve supplies. They encounter an injured Luke Bankole and, after he convinces them that he is not a Guardian, take him with them. After Zoe manages to stabilize Luke's wounds, Christine and Peter reveal to Luke that Erin was rescued from a "training center" and that Gilead had begun rounding up fertile women.

When the group attempts to cross into Canada on a boat, they are ambushed by Guardians; Zoe is killed, while Peter, Christine, and possibly Lyla are able to escape to Canada along with Luke and Erin. Christine's whereabouts after the escape are unknown, since only Erin is seen to remain with Luke in the present[1].
