Redwall Wiki | Brian Jacques and Redwall Information

Shadow was alleged to be a pitch black-colored rat, although it was believed that he could be a weasel, or even a hybrid of both species. Lean and wiry, Shadow was also an accomplished climber and burglar. His ability as a spy made him very important to Cluny the Scourge, who ordered Shadow to infiltrate Redwall Abbey and steal the tapestry of Martin the Warrior in an attempt to demoralize the Redwallers.

While Shadow entered the Abbey and gnaw out Martin's image, he was discovered by Matthias, who sounded the alarm. Shadow made a run for it, but was stopped at the top of the wall by Mr. Fieldmouse and Constance. Shadow wounded Mr. Fieldmouse with his dagger, but as he turned on Constance, she struck him with her paw too hard, causing Shadow to lose his balance and fall off the wall to the ground below.

Cluny recovered the tapestry at the bottom of the wall and took off, while the abandoned Shadow died shortly after. He lived long enough to calmly tell Matthias that Cluny was now in possession of Martin's tapestry.

Nelvana Redwall TV Series[]

  • In the Nelvana Redwall TV Series, Shadow's fall off by wall is caused by a tug of war with Matthias over Martin's tapestry, which Shadow wins, but the sheer pull of his winning tug causes him to lose his balance and fall.
