BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Billy Costa grew up on a gyptian boat with his mother, Ma Costa and his brother Tony Costa.

KidnapEdit

During the Horse Fair in Oxford, Billy got captured by the Gobblers after running off in the middle of holding a horse-trader's horse. Billy, Roger Parslow and a few other children were then taken to Bolvangar.

Meanwhile at the Horse Fair, Ma Costa had begun to search for him, and soon Lyra had rounded up a few children to help search for him, but he wasn't to be found. Roger was taken by the Gobblers later that day.[2]

BolvangarEdit

The day after arriving at Bolvangar, Pantalaimon, Lyra's dæmon, saw Billy behind Lyra in the lunch queue. She, Roger and Billy sat together and talked about the site. Billy told her that he had heard from one of the nurses that children who had had the operation were taken to hostels further south. Roger had the most helpful news, though, as he had found a loose ceiling panel and discovered that you could crawl above the whole site.

During the fire drill that afternoon, Billy stood guard with Roger whilst Lyra and Kaisa freed the severed dæmons from a little outhouse on the site. Billy never saw the dæmons fly away.[3]

After the children fled from Bolvangar, he was reunited with his brother when the gyptians and witches liberated the children.[4]
