I had just learned otter speech when I left, it's totally gone, and I haven't read the book in ages, I apologize
Rewriting his history, making it his ACTUAL history, his journey through the ROC sniff It's been so long, when I retire, I'll miss this character
Hm, just realized I messed up Sharkrudder's age, I shouldn't have copied and pasted from word, Sharkrudder should be 40 seasons old
Fishrudder's young life started out at Redwall Abbey, in only the 8th season of DAB. His parents decided on a different life style for their holt of two families, Fishrudder's family, and the Vale's. They headed out to the River Moss and found a cave along the bank, they spent much of their time playing in the river, as Fishrudder, Sharkrudder, and Aral Vale got older, they learned fighting techniques from Rankin. Once Fishrudder, Sharkrudder, and Aral were 16, 20, and 14 seasons old, respectively, they were set upon by a band of cowardly vermin at night. All four of the parents were killed, and Aral and Fishrudder ran away, thankfully together, however, Sharkrudder, in anger, went hunting. Fishrudder and Aral wandered around Mossflower for two seasons, until they stumbled upon a fort in horrible disarray. They approached the fort carefully, with the wariness they had learned on their own. With only a sling among the two of them, they entered the fort, quietly skulking around, looking for food. They spent the night in a room at the fort. When the awoke in the morning, they heard a noise from the courtyard, when they arrived at the keep entrance the looked out to see an array of veteran warriors, several mice, otters and a family of hares.
As time passed they learned under this group of warriors, Fishrudder apprenticed under a warrior mouse from the North named Raiden Silversword. And Aral, well, Aral learned his own trade, leaving Fishrudder for awhile, he came back with the profession of assassination. He never said were he learned his trait, but, he was certainly good at it, and it saved Fishrudder's life several times, so he didn't question it.
Once the two of them became skilled warriors they left the group, which had been called "Guardians of Mossflower", They headed towards the coast, befriending a group of hares, and another otter, named Stealth. The hares took the trio of otters to Salamandastron, where, they stayed for a season. Before they left, the current Badger Lord outfitted them with weapons, and armor.
They headed north up the coast, eventually landing at, yet again, another fort. This one named, aptly, Otter's Fort. Surprisingly, it was lead by an otter with the name of Finnerator Rudderbow, one of the otter's that had been with the "Guardians of Mossflower". Fishrudder took control of the group of Land Warriors not long after he had been at the fort. He appointed Aral and a mouse named Linx as his lieutenants. They spent many many seasons there, roughly 13 seasons before Finnerator decided to retire, during this time, Stealth died at the age of 39 seasons. She, having become close friends with Fishrudder, left him in control of the Fort. It was then, in his 37th season that he got word of a vermin hoard that was set to sweep into Mossflower. After much discussion, the fort's military decided to uproot itself and head up, to help defend Mossflower. The small army's weapons were impressive, with armaments that were unheard of throughout Mossflower. Balls that threw fire, repeating crossbows, and wicked looking swords and other melee weapons. Once they met up with the rest of the defending force, they entered combat not long after. They managed to win a Pyhrric victory; however, Fishrudder lost most of his friends. He and Aral being the only two of his band to escape…. That he knows of.
There we go, that's my entire notable history
(I re-copied and pasted it, fixing a few things, I'm sorry if the history timeline doesn't add up, I wrote it, then realized it was at the bottom)

Character attributes are brilliant! I should put some in for Sonnis. Oughta be good for a laugh, and help me understand how I should treat him in the future (he's changed a bit, I think).
I think it's pretty nicely done!
PS: Hoarding of vermin is prohibited by the Vermin Code of Conduct, since vermin are not valuable. Seriously, you ever try selling a slave stoat? (sounds much funnier than I think it…)
