Ok so here is the problem, I am wanting to make another OC to use but here is the thing. I have no idea if he would qualify as a traditional character or is a non-traditional character! Now here is the things about him that is causing all the trouble.
He isn't a species used in the redwall series (i am using the Japanese Sable, –-> http://eol.org/pages/328022/details) BUTTT he is a foreigner who traveled to mossflower.
Now we all know that the world of Redwall is obviously bigger than just Mossflower so there has to be more species then what is used in the books and we dont know what he was planning next for the series. But still were would I place this guy? Is it possible for him to be a traditional or does he have to go into non-traditional? This wouldn't be a issue for me but I want to use this guy in traditional rps and I doubt non-traditional OCs can be used in a traditional rp. So where would he go?
