Quote "I said you were Not Hardly Alice, but you're much more like her now, infact you're Almost Alice."

Absolem is a character in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Absolem is a caterpillar that appears in both the real world and Underland, however like Pip in Enchanted, Absolem doesn't speak in the real world.

Role in the Film

Absolem seems to be Underland's oracle. When there is a problem or uncertainty, Absolem is who the characters in Underland go to for answers. He is the keeper of the Oraculum; a compendium of Wonderland's history.

Absolem appears in the real world on two separate occasions. One is in caterpillar form when Alice is proposed to by Hamish. When Alice notices a caterpillar on Hamish's shoulder, she, being the "gentle giant" she is (compared to Absolem), rescues Absolem by placing him on the gazebo. Later, when she stands on a ship bound for China, she sees him in butterfly form and she recognizes him by name.
