Background:
The ever "fearless" Tarivo Sorthen. A daring treasure-hunter born in a hut near the river in Mossflower. Finding himself bored to death of the quiet life, he left his home and family to travel and seek his own adventures. He had read a lot about pirates and other thrill seekers in books, and wanted nothing more but to be like them.
He spends most of his time chasing after rumors and tall tales he finds spread around the villages around Mossflower, and even little tidbits he's read at Redwall he thought worth investigating.
To this date, he hasn't actually found anything. People who've gotten to know him find him eccentric and laughable.

Why? His main motive is to seek out rare treasures, which could easily tie him into looking for the Sapphire, and keeping its well-being intact. The last he would ever do is turn a blind eye to conflicts such as hostage situations, regardless of whether it involves his comrades or innocent creatures. His weaknesses may directly influence their chosen paths. Otherwise, someone will have to pull him up a wall, or tie him up to a ship mast, which should be perfectly fine with everyone else.
