Abbot Mortimer was the mouse successor to Abbot Cedric and the predecessor to Abbot Mordalfus at Redwall Abbey. He was also the infirmary keeper. Mortimer was friends with Mr. Squirrel and Jess, and he was also a close friend of Matthias. Abbot Mortimer was described as gentle, and well-educated on Abbey history, knowing stories about Martin the Warrior, Gonff, Mariel, and Dandin.

Abbot Mortimer from the Redwall TV Series

During the Summer of the Late Rose, he ordered the Redwallers not to attack Cluny the Scourge's army when they were retreating. He was imprisoned after Cluny captured Redwall Abbey. After Cluny threatened some of the Abbey residents, Mortimer verbally defended them, which caused Cluny to assault the mouse with the poisoned barb on his tail. Mortimer died shortly thereafter. Before his death, he told Brother Alf to succeed him as Abbot.

He is the only Abbot or Abbess on record to die a violent death.
