- "Never afraid, always a true warrior - that was Felldoh's way."
Felldoh was a burly young male squirrel who was a slave in Fort Marshank under Badrang the Tyrant, along with his father Barkjon. It is unknown where Felldoh was actually born, but he mentioned that Badrang had beaten him when he was little more than an infant. He was a brave warrior who was skilled in the crafting and usage of javelins. He rarely ever missed a target while throwing, and due to his great physical strength, he was an excellent close range fighter too.
Felldoh helped Laterose of Noonvale and Grumm Trencher fend off slavers that were attempting to lure hungry seabirds to the helpless, bound Martin the Warrior, who had previously defended Felldoh's father, Barkjon, from a beating. Later, the weasel Stiffear saw Felldoh throwing rocks at the slavers, one of whom tore off Skalrag's ear, and Felldoh was thrown into a pit with Brome (who had wandered into the fray unintentionally) and Martin. Eventually, Felldoh, Martin, and Brome, with Keyla's help, devised a way to escape the pit by means of a tunnel dug by Grumm. The plan worked and as the group was leaving, Felldoh swore to return to Fort Marshank to free the other slaves and slay Badrang. The group set out to sea, but due to an attack by a giant fish, the group was split in two; Felldoh and Brome in one group and Martin, Rose, and Grumm in the other.
Felldoh and Brome washed up on shore south of Marshank and met the Rambling Rosehip Players. They grew very close to the company and together created a plan to free the remaining slaves at Marshank. The plan was a partial success and Felldoh slew the treacherous bankvole Druwp during the rescue. The squirrel Celandine, who had developed feelings for Felldoh, fell behind the group and was captured by Cap'n Tramun Clogg. Felldoh resolved to rescue her and was taught how to be more effective with a throwing javelin by Ballaw De Quincewold. Felldoh, Rowanoak, and Ballaw rescued Celandine and went back to camp. During this, Brome managed to sneak into Marshank and free the rest of the slaves. Felldoh and company met the remaining slaves at a cliff and managed to rescue them with very few casualties. During a feast to celebrate the rescue, Brome noticed that they were being followed by some of Badrang's trackers. With help from Brome, Felldoh created a false trail leading to a swamp and coldly slaughtered five of the 10 trackers. Brome was disturbed by Felldoh's actions and Felldoh explained that slavery made him that way, and that he wished he lived a peaceful life like Brome. Felldoh expressed regret of the fact that his harsh life had made him capable of killing others.
Shortly after they returned to camp, Felldoh led an attack on Marshank that cost the young mouse Juniper his life. After Juniper's funeral, Felldoh once again swore to slay Badrang and his entire horde. Concerned that he no longer understood his friend, Brome told Felldoh that his words were an oath of vengeance, not a goodbye to Juniper, and he asked how many more must die before Felldoh's blood lust was satisfied. The squirrel coldly responded that it would take as many as necessary, himself included.
During a show the Rambling Rosehip Players put on for the slaves, Felldoh acted more cheerful and outgoing than usual because he was secretly planning what he thought was going to be the final attack on Marshank. In the early morning, he set out for Marshank, with a concerned Keyla, Tullgrew, and Brome secretly following him. He led a solo attack on Marshank and challenged Badrang to single combat. Before accepting Felldoh's challenge for a duel, Badrang set an ambush; due to Felldoh's determination to kill Badrang, he failed to notice. The fight did not last very long as Badrang was no match for Felldoh. Instead of killing Badrang right on the spot, Felldoh beat Badrang with one of his javelins as Badrang had had his slaves beaten. He never got the chance to kill the stoat, however. Badrang managed to escape, and in a rage that some believe to be the Bloodwrath, Felldoh killed 20 of Badrang's soldiers armed only with his wooden javelins. Overcome with grief for his friend, Brome rushed to Felldoh's side, but Felldoh was dead by the time Brome reached him, laying peacefully with a calm smile on his face and a broken javelin in each paw. He was buried outside Marshank, where he fell.
Although cold-hearted and violent towards his enemies and rather solitary and modest in the company of his allies, Felldoh's one overwhelming goal was to end slavery by whatever means necessary. He became consumed with his task at the expense of his relationships, and his steadfastness both inspired and concerned his friends.

In the Nelvana Redwall TV series, there are few changes to Felldoh. When he and Keyla are freeing the slaves, he sees Druwp attempting to murder his wounded father, giving him no choice but to kill the bankvole. When he fights Badrang one on one, he doesn’t thrash the Tyrant with his javelin and then kills 20 of Badrang’s horde members. Instead, he commandeers Badrang’s sword, uses it to fight the many horde beasts, but he doesn’t kill a single one.
