Tessa? She is a flamed colored squirrel with trianksbbraided in her hair from fallen enemies. (Her little inside joke), courageous and friendly but has a mean side,when she gets annoyed with someone. Loves to play pranks on other beasts and enjoys life for the most part. Overall she had a good heart and strives to always do her best.
Thinking thinking thinking.
I could bring:
A. A kind but no nonsense middle aged beast who has worked his way up the chain of comman all nice and propper, never once having to draw his blade in anger or survive a siege. This is an otter or mouse or badger
B. A bounty hunter who got injured in the redwall area decided to stay afterwards. She has been a scout and because she can count past her paws, she was given the job. But hasnt acclimated to it well. This is a female otter.
C. A corrupt and greedy beast who is secretly funneling coins into his own pocket and looking the other way on crimes for a bribe. This is an otter and or badger
D. Young up and coming guard gets the job because his father was the head guard before him. He has a very strict, up tight appearence, but secretly has a vermin lover he sneaks out to meet at night… Who may or may not be a scout for a war lord...
This is an otter or mouse.
What do you guys think? What would best serve the needs of a story? And yes. Each character is open to dying or being replaced as needed
