SUNFLASH THE MACE.  Male badger.   Son of Bella and Barkstripe, grandson of Boar, great-grandson of Old Lord Brocktree.  He was born less than a year before Verdauga arrived in Mossflower.  He snuck out of Brockhall one night to avenge his father's death but was far too young to face Kotir. He was presumed dead but was actually the prisoner of Swartt Sixclaw, who called him "Scumtripe."  Sunflash was about the same age as Swartt. He had a golden-colored headstripe and dark brown eyes.  He crippled Swartt’s sixclaw while escaping with Skarlath, who named him Sunflash because he could not remember his real name.  His favorite weapon was a large mace.  He was a defender of the poor and helpless who liked writing poems, farming and playing with young ones.  He was a life long enemy of Swartt, whom he eventually killed.  He later visited Redwall and was reunited with Bella.  After her death, he moved back to Salamandastron, changed his name to "Sunstripe" and became a farmer.  (MF, OR)

SWARTT SIXCLAW THE WARLORD.  Tall, sinewy male ferret.  Also known as "The Pitiless One."  Husband of Bluefen, father of Veil.  Nightshade was his closest confidante.   He wore the teeth and claws of defeated enemies around his neck, a bright blue cloak and a snakeskin belt.  He wore stripes of purple and green warpaint on his face and dyed his teeth red.  He had six claws on his left paw, which was crippled by Sunflash. After that, Swartt wore a meshed brass mail gauntlet on his sixclaw, and he and Sunflash became lifelong arch-enemies.  He was originally from Bowfleg's horde, but he left while still young to make a name for himself.  He later returned, killed Bowfleg and took over the horde.  His war banner had a sixclaw symbol on it.  He married Bluefen, and their son was born just prior to her death.  Swartt ignored his offspring, who was soon abandoned near Redwall.  Swartt’s horde grew in size and strength over the years but was decimated in a battle at Salamandastron.   Swartt’s son, Veil, was briefly reunited with him in Bat Mountpit.   Moments after accidentally killing Veil, Swartt himself was slain when Sunflash threw him off the top of the mountain.  (OR)
