Craklyn was a female squirrel of Redwall Abbey. She was the best friend of the mousemaid Piknim, and also a very close friend of Tansy.
As a young squirrelmaid, she was very clever and good at reading and writing, and was an invaluable asset in finding the Tears of all Oceans and unraveling their analogous riddles. Craklyn and Piknim were very active and agile and loved to race each other. They would often use the search for the pearls as an opportunity to challenge each other up or down the stairs and throughout the Abbey.
