Long-tailed cousins of weasels and ferrets, stoats are found in many vermin hordes, and are all classed as antagonists, with the exception of Crumdun. In winter, the fur of some stoats turns pure white except for the tip of the tail, which remains black. These stoats are called ermine.


  • According to Brian Jacques, stoats are inspired by the London East End barrow boy. This term originally referred to a young man who sold fruits or vegetables out of a wheelbarrow in the street. In modern times, it means someone of a low social class attempting to behave in more refined manner.
