MARTIN THE WARRIOR. Mouse. Son of Luke the Warrior. Mother killed by searats when he was an infant. After Luke’s death, taken as a slave by Badrang. Escaped, visited Noonvale, returned to liberate Marshank from Badrang. His love, Rose, died in the battle. He then travelled south to Mossflower and was imprisoned by Verdauga. He escaped with Gonff, then went questing with Gonff, Dinny and Log-a-Log to Salamandastron. Returned to Mossflower and liberated it, killing Tsarmina. He was severely wounded in the battle but survived. Then hung up his sword and led a life of peace, becoming Redwall Abbey’s co-founder with Abbess Germaine. He was buried in a tomb beneath the Abbey. His ghost sometimes appears in dreams and visions to offer advice to troubled Redwallers. (MW, MF, LL)
