Full Name: Avelrak Krasto
Species: Gray Squirrel
Description: Has a mysterious but benevolent nature. Loves to trick, outwit, and avoid his enemies rather than fight them. Has a shade of blue in his eyes that would unnerve certain people when he stares at them. Seventeen years old (seasons). Average height. Likes to wear robes and clothes like it that have distinct cool colors. Does not care for warm colors. Was born and raised in a far away land. Has a younger sister named "Aelon" and a friend named "Arreon". Is called "Insidious" because of his surprising disabling abilities in combat and because of the fact that he looks semi-harmless.
Possessions: Distinctly colored clothing that he brought with him from a far away land. Also carries a mahogany staff with a spherical end. Uses it to defend himself or to knock foes unconscious.
Strengths: Good problem-solver. A natural leader when he has a plan. Knows the art of stealth. Talented with his staff when used for defense. Great attention to detail, especially when he thinks about what could go wrong in his plans. Trustworthy and honest. Can perceive threats before they become obvious. Calm in the face of danger. Makes it very clear to others what he wants, what he means, and what he meant to say if he blunders. Knows how to gain people's respect.
Weaknesses: May misinterpret what people mean when they say things. Split personality - sometimes likes to talk to people, sometimes silent and unresponsive when he is thinking. Doesn't fully understand danger. Has great difficulty understanding mole speech and similar forms of language. Very literal thinker, but is learning figurative statements. Can occasionally say things that are insensitive. Lack of empathy.
Background: He was born and raised in a faraway land. He came to Redwall out of curiosity. He spent a few months with his sister. Both he and his sister use "yes" instead of "aye", "year" instead of "season", and "person, nobody, and no one" instead of "beast". Both he and his sister endured the Tainted Forest without harm, physically or emotionally. Now they live in Redwall Abbey, and are very interesting residents in the eyes of the Redwallers.
I hope I didn't break the "keep it short and sweet" rule, but there are so many things about him that need explaining.
