Auma was a female badger from the Western Plains. She was the daughter of Orlando the Axe and Brockrose. Brockrose died when she was very young. As an older child, she was kidnapped from her father by Slagar the Cruel, a slaver fox intent on selling healthy young beasts to the evil polecat Malkariss of the southern underground kingdom to work as slaves. Auma was eventually rescued along with other youths by a group of woodlanders that included her father and Matthias. She traveled back to Redwall Abbey with Orlando, where he raised her into adulthood with Constance the Badger Mother.
After Constance passed away and Orlando journeyed off to Salamandastron, Auma became the Badger Mother of Redwall. She cared for Dibbuns and helped defend the Abbey. She was a reliable badger of good sense.
In the U.S. cover art for Mattimeo, Troy Howell drew Auma as an American badger (Taxidea taxus), rather than a European one (Meles meles).
