Sela from the Redwall TV series

Sela was a healer fox who resided in Mossflower Woods and the mother of Chickenhound. Together, she and her son lived with an unnamed band of foxes. Sela had golden eyes, and was a crafty double-dealer of information. When she was ordered to heal Cluny the Scourge, she and Chickenhound were able to steal his combat plans. However, Cluny intended for this to happen. The plans said that Cluny was going to use only a battering ram when in reality, he intended to use the ram and tunnel to infiltrate Redwall Abbey.

When it was discovered that Sela was providing information to the Redwallers, Cluny had the two traitorous foxes speared by his soldiers. Their bodies were thrown into a ditch, and Sela died from her wounds. In the TV series, Sela was injured by Matthias and caught by Constance. She was slain by Cluny's horde soon after.


Trivia

  • The TV series implies that Methuselah knew of her, since he mentions "you are far worse than your wicked mother" to Chickenhound when seeing him running from Friar Hugo with the stolen goods. This connection was also mentioned in the book.
