Abbot Daucus was a male mouse in charge of Redwall Abbey. He was a brisk, energetic mouse in his mid-seasons. He seemed to be much more strict and warlike than his predecessors, having made the rare decision to exile Orkwil Prink for thievery, although this decision was later rescinded when Orkwil and Gorath the Flame returned with dire news of the Sea Raiders. He took part in the preparing for battle with his sling when the Brownrats attacked. He also led the charge on the Sea Raiders and the Brownrats with Orkwil Prink at his side. Daucus was known as a scholar of badger lore.
