Celandine was a vain young squirrelmaid who was good at singing and a member of the Rambling Rosehip Players. She seemed to take a liking to Felldoh and often flirted with him. She added frills and lace to her Rambling Rosehip Players tunic which unfortunately hindered her as she tried to escape from Badrang's cronies, causing her to be captured. Fortunately, she was rescued by Felldoh, Rowanoak and Ballaw. Celandine was not very brave or strong but was not bad-hearted either.
She was known to bat her eyelashes at all handsome woodlanders, whether they were squirrels or not, and often shirked her duties in the Rambling Rosehip Players' camp (cooking, cleaning, etc.).
Her name is pronounced with the letter 'C' as 'K', not as in 'C' in "cell", but as in "Celeborn".
