Redwall Wiki | Brian Jacques and Redwall Information

Guosim was the leader and President of the Guerilla Union of Shrews in Mossflower, a tribe of argumentative shrews who lived a nomadic existence in Mossflower Woods that feared predators. She was named after the group itself. Guosim was dearly loved by Log-a-Log, a wise elder who succeeded her. She led the tribe at a time when Captain Snow and Asmodeus Poisonteeth terrorized them, and when the Guosim used the Blackstone.

When Matthias entered Guosim territory in his search for the Sword of Martin the Warrior, Guosim was initially snappish towards him, but Log-a-Log cast the majority vote for the shrews to aid in the mouse's quest. She later joined Matthias, for if he killed the adder Asmodeus, Captain Snow would lose his bet with Squire Julian Gingivere and never eat mice or shrews again, ensuring Mossflower would be safe for the tribe.

Guosim and Log-a-Log escorted Matthias to the Quarry, the residence of Asmodeus, where they had tracked the sword. The trio initially spent the better part of a day scouring the edges for possible openings, as the interior tunnel network appeared to be sealed. Guosim momentarily sat on a large rock and told the others of their possible next move, but the rock, revealed to be a hatch, gave way and she fell into the adder's lair.

Matthias and Log-a-Log later scaled the tunnel down, but upon arrival, couldn't find sight-nor-sound of Guosim. Just as Matthias located the cave where Asmodeus slept, Matthias noticed a motionless Guosim up against a cave wall. When Matthias investigated the scene, she slumped over; he discovered that she was dead, having been bitten by Asmodeus and then dragged to the cave.
