Who This IsEdit

Abbess Saffron and Friar Dimp

Species:Red Squirrels
Place of Origin:Redwall Abbey
Gender:female and male
Weapon: none, unless you count rapping disobedient kitchen helpers with a soup ladle
Death: unknown
Appears: Gingiverian: A Tale of Redwall; Dimp is mentioned in Eulalia!.

Elder brother and younger sister, separate in age by only five seasons, the pair of squirrels who ran Redwall Abbey and its kitchens shared a great love for their work, and each other.

Friar Dimp, the brother, had a great love of food and was predictably a bit pudgy. His favorite dish to cook was Mushroom Pasty, for which he had created a special secret recipe. He was an incredibly tidy squirrel, always insisting that his kitchens, and the white tunic and apron he wore, stayed as clean as they possibly could. Dimp was known for being a bit mischevious, and for innocently poking fun at other creatures; some said he never outgrew his Dibbun seasons. He was also a very good singer, with a deep bass voice and a talent for creating his own rhymes.

Abbess Saffron, the sister, was a dark eyed, unusually beautiful red squirrel; she was very sprightly for her age, and an excellent climber, far better than any other squirrel in the Abbey during her time. Her dress usually consisted of the standard green habit and cowl, with a white cord tied about her middle. When not overseeing Redwall's day-to-day activities, she spent most of her time helping Sister Flim take care of abbeybabes, and assisting her brother in the kitchens. She was a gentle creature, but would not hesitate to be firm when necessary. As a Dibbun, she acquired the pet name 'Ronny', which stuck around all her life; however, her brother was the only one allowed to use that name without rebuke.
