Emily the Emerald Engine, is a fictional anthropomorphic steam locomotive from the television series Thomas & Friends. She is the only female member of the "Steam Team", the eight core characters of the series, and also the only member who does not appear in the original Railway Series books, until Nia and Rebecca debuted in Series 22. She is painted emerald, and has two large driving wheels, a shiny brass safety valve cover and the number 12 painted on her tender. When she first arrived on the Island of Sodor, she took Thomas' coaches Annie and Clarabel by mistake, much to Thomas' dismay to the shock of the other engines. However, after she rescued Oliver from a nasty accident, she was rewarded with two coaches of her own. From Series 8 onwards, she has been depicted as a rather bossy character, which can make her difficult to work with at times. She is sometimes a "big sister" figure to the smaller engines like Thomas and Percy. Following her rescue of Gordon from a collapsing bridge, and James, Percy and Rebecca from a derailment, Emily became Sodor's safety engine. She speaks with a Scottish accent.
