Your character's full name: Tamar (Aalai, what's Gist's last name?)
Species: grey squirrel
Species: grey squirrel
Tamar is a plain grey squirrel with redish brown fur on her head and back and a white stomach. She wears a plain Redwall novice's habit and doesn't go out for finery. She's rather petite and her figure's not bad but she carries herself strait and tall and rather smug.Belongings:
Not much, Tamar has a few books about female heroes from the past and the advancements in the rights of female creatures. She also has a sling that she is very proficient with.Job or Position:
Redwall's resident feminist. Officially she's a kitchen helper which she finds greatly demeaning.Personality:
Tamar is independent and proud. She's basically like Kathrine from Taming of the Shrew only minus the little sister. She has officially sworn off love. But that doesn't mean a certain male squirrel couldn't get to her if he really tried.History and Background Information:
She's thrilled that there is now an Abbess instead of an Abbot especially since it's her best friend Saol. She has already apointed herself as the Abbess's personal assistant. She's torn on the idea of a badgermum. She likes the idea of a female with that much power but resents that it usually just means taking care of dibbuns. She also likes the idea of the Abbey having a female Champion just don't ask her to take up the position because she's nonviolent for the most part.
Tamar is the granddaughter of the former Abbey champion, Gist. (I was looking for his profile but I guess Aalai was just using him as an NCP. so I get to play with his history.) His son and daughter-in-law were killed by vermin leaving Tamar an orphan at an early age, so he brought her back to Redwall with him. She grew up there kind of like Mattimeo with great things expected of her and little discipline. However, she unlike the late great Matti, is female so she was often 'put in her place' by elders and she got sick of it. She's always feared that she would be married off to some warrior like Tess Churchmouse was just because 'a warrior needs a good wife.' So she rebelled and said she would never marry.Any other details:
She was about to stand up and protest Bark's appointment as Abbey champion knowing that even though she was several seasons older than him, that didn't stop ol' Matti from marrying Tess. But her good friend Saol had told her about Martin naming her Abbess and that she would never let that happen if Tamar didn't wish it.
Besides, Saol knows, as do a few other creatures, that there is another male squirrel who would be perfect for Tamar.
future love interest for Silas
I'm going to be off the computer for most of the day don't let him get to far down the path I want her to get a parting shot before he totally leaves the Abbey.
