Show Summary

The tranquil Abbey of Redwall basks in The Summer of The Late Rose. It is a haven of harmony and peace that is abruptly threatened by a mercilessly savage bilge-rat Cluny the Scourge intent on destroying it. He is a demented rat haunted by nightmare visions of a mystical mouse warrior, and his destiny - or some mystical force - has lead him and his verminous horde to Redwall. Ill equipped to defend themselves the villagers of Redwall find in their midst a young orphin mouse who will grow into a great warrior and leader. His name is Matthias. This hopeless dreamer's own hero is Martin the Warrior, a legendary mouse who once upon a time defended the same abbey. Matthias longs to emulate the heroism and valour of Martin the Warrior whose exploits are well-known to all through the cherished and detailed tapestry that hangs in the Grand Hall of Redwall. Matthias is about to get his chance. Redwall is the story of how Matthias finds himself and his destiny in the long siege mounted by Cluny. Combining the strength of truly remarkable friends, the affection of a kitchen mousemaid, the mystical connection with Martin the Warrior, and his own resources of intelligence and raw courage, Matthias pursues his quest to save Redwall Abbey. Characters Matthias- As we begin our story, we are introduced to a wide eyed, daydreaming novice named Matthias. Matthias is an orphin, having lost his parents When Cluny the Scourge raided his village. He now lives within the protective walls of Redwall Abbey where he does his best to follow in Father Abbott's footsteps. But he longs for more. As he gazes daily at the grand tapestry detailing the legendary exploits of Martin the Warrior he dreams of one day embodying the qualities of his hero. Already, he sees himself bowing to the cheering crowd after wrestling the enemy to the ground. Goodness and honesty must prevail but violence should always be a last resort. But be careful what you wish for! For one very bad day, Redwall Abbey is attacked by the evil Cluny and the life all Redwallers knew is shattered almost beyond repair. It is up to the courageous and the few to defend the only home they have, facing one perilous adventure after another. Matthias must meet his destiny and realize that bravery comes from within not from any weapon. Cornflower- Cornflower is no ordinary kitchen mouse and unlike Matthias in many ways. She's no dreamer or romantic, she tackles the world as she finds it - directly and without complaint. Her primary duty is tending to and caring for members of Redwall Abbey. Whether the air is full of seet smells and buzzing bees or acrid smoke and showers of screaming arrows Cornflower shows great courage and resourcefulness as she braves these dangers. Cornflower also harbors a secret love for Matthias. She sees past the awkward manners and seeming flightiness of the young orphin to the kindness and bravery of the soon-to-be-warrior. She will be a worthy partner for Matthias as together they experience more hardships and more happiness than either of them could have imagined. Abbott Mortimer- Known as Father Abbot, Mortimer is the dignified, twinkle-eyed old mouse of Redwall Abbey, helplessly smothering his laughter in a deep shadow behind Matthias. His tolerant amusement of Matthias's antics as genuine as his love for all the creatures in his care, the same love that caused him to take in the tiny orphin and raise him as if he had been his own son. If he is frustrated by Matthias it is because he wants him to grow into responsibility. His vocation is the happiness and contentment of al and obedience to the Order's solem vow never to harm another living creature. It is a vow that is to be sorely tested as our story unfolds. Matthias's creed is full of the spirit of Abbott Mortimer - to be peaceful but to be ready, to courageously defend that which you believe in until belief is no longer enough. Then, and only then, do you resist by any means that come to hand. Constance- If there's something heavy to haul or a principle to be upheld or a silence to be ordered or a rat to be terrified - one bark from Constance and the job is done. Constance is a tower of streangh at Redwall Abbey and when faced with danger or fools she is fierce and quick to anger and she is also - always - right. But she is no bully - she just doesn't suffer fools or cowards gladly. And she doesn't suffer rats at all. She is one Redwaller they respect to the point of fear. Even Cluny the Scourge will retreat before those dark, sharp eyes, razor teet, mighty claws and that deep enormous grow. As Matthias's unswerving friend, as solid defender of the abbey walls and as hard-nosed practical advisor, Constance the Badger never wavers, never doubts, never draws back from trouble, fever forgives treachery - and never fails in friendship. Basil Stag Hare- A delightful, insanely brave, huge and lanky aristocrat. His dignity is only slightly marred by his wildly uncontrollable appetite. Courtly, formidable and principled, he is an expert scout, wilderness guide and backleg fighter. He is a lone woodland samurai, an old school defender of the innocent, a hare injudiciously packed to the limit with the right stuff. And best of all, he hates RATS. He becomes Matthias's fighting ally, strategist, conspirator and friend. Cluny the Scourge- Cluny the Scourge is a toughn mangey, ragged-eared brute of a bilgerat, terrible to beyhold. No one knows where he came from. But wherever he is from, wherever he goes, trouble is sure to follow. He plunders the land at the head of his evil army of vermin. He rules by terror, acts of his every evil whim, is unpredictably savage even to his own men and fears no living creature, for he terrifies all who see him. Even his henchrats faun and cringe under his perilous temper and live in terror of his next command. This merciless raider squints at the world through his one, beady eye (The other was gouged out by the teeth of a freshwater pike and fester beneath a greasy patch. The pike did not survive). Cluny is hell-bent on pillaging Redwall Abey and enslaving every living thing within it. But there is something else, something which haunts him every night and every waking moment. He is recurrent nightmares of a mouse. A mouse in armour. A mouse with a great sword. These mystical visitations are of Martin the Warrior...or I Am That Is - Matthias. They drive him on. They drive him mad. Season 2 Mattimeo- Son of the now-married Matthias and Cornflower, Mattimeo is spoils by just about every woodlander within the abbey walls. We learn early that he is the ringleader to the young creatures of the abbey and, at times, a bad influence on them all - although he is fond of his peers, particulary young Tess. Mattimeo feels encumbered simply by being the son of Matthias, warrior of Redwall - everybeast expects him to live up to the name that his father has earned. When he and his companions are held captive by Slagar the Cruel, Mattimeo's natural leadership abilities finally come to the surface - he keeps the others calm and their hopes high. In the toughest of situations he realises he can bring a smile to his friends' faces. It is here that we begin to se a change from old Mattimeo. With his pas chained together he resolves that if he ever gets free and returns to Redwall he will always be a good son. Tess Churchmouse- Tess is a beautiful young mouse from Redwall Abbey. She is also among the Redwallers taken from the abbey by Slager and forced to join his horrible slave trail. Although terrified herself, she soon gains streingh from offering comfort to the younger captives. Separated from their parents, both Tess and Mattimeo work together and calm. She is a good Companion to Mattimeo, reminding him that the weak ones amonst them look to him for defense. She is not at all surprised to see Mattimeo change from the wayward mischief-mouse to the young warrior he is capable of being. Their experiences and adventures they share bring them closer together and what began as a friendship soon blossoms into everlasting love. Orlando the Axe- Orlando is a devoded woodland father. He and his daughter, Auma, are the only surviving members of their family following a vicious attack by Slagar the Cruel. But misfortune visits again as Slagar claims Auma as one of his slaves. Orlando's mission is clear. He seeks revenge. His vengeful gourny intertwines with that of Matthias. Could it be fate that's brought them together? They become unified in the quest to rescue their young and punish the evil Slager. The Redwallers gain a new and just hero in Orlando. Throughout their journeys Orlando helps to protect the Redwallers with his strengh and the use of his axe. Auma- Auma is the daughter of Orlando the Axe. Her mother died when Auma was a young girl. While she is raised by her father, Auma had been looking after him untill she was taken from him by Slagar the Cruel. She's fiesty, independant, and very wise for her young age. Whithin the group of slaves, she has taken on the "mother" role by taking care of the little ones. Slagar the Cruel- Son of Sela the Vixen, Slagar is a slave trading fox whose real name is Chickenhound. Slager lives to seek revenge on the woodlanders at Redwall who, he claims, speared his mother and left her to dye in the ditch. They then held him "prisoner" in the infirmary at the abbey from which he easily escaped. Shortly after his escape he was attacked by Asmodeus the snake, an attack that left a hideous scar on his face. Slagar scoured the streets, gathering a rabble of treacherous stoats, ferrets, and weasels to work in his slaving band. They are an unsavoury crew of thieves, tramps, and beggars, untrustworty liars dressed in filthy rags stuffed with an asortment of rusty daggers, spikes, spears, axes, and knives. Those who step out of line feel the piercing bite of Slagar's cane or the sharp end of his sword - he'll threaten their very live without a second thought. Even his laughter sends shivers through every creature. General Ironbeak- Ironbeak the raven is the leader of the crows, rooks, and magpies. They all flew with Ironbeak from the north where he was the most feared fighter in the land. Now they are keen to settle in this warm, lush land of easy foraging - Redwall Abbey is Ironbeaks targeted dwelling. Ironbeak's army of birds came up against Cornflower and the Redwallers - and drove them into the Cavern Hole by attacking the abbey from the roofs. Ironbeak's assault is successful, he takes several hostages and rules, for a time, with an iron claw. That is until Redwall's newest ally, Stryk Redkite, takes on Ironbeak in a spectacular mid-air battle that sends the once-powerful raven plummeting to the ground.
