|Laird Bosie McScutta of Bowlaynee|
Laird Bosie McScutta of Bowlaynee was a hare from the Highlands with the occupation of a warrior-bard. He played the fiddle, the bow from which doubled as an archer's bow. He fired flightless metal rods with this combination instrument/weapon. The rods were stored in the instrument itself. He claimed his grandfather kicked him out of the family castle due to his immense appetite.
Bosie arrived at Redwall Abbey just in time to save the life of Dugry from a crow under the command of Korvus Skurr. As with most hares, he was a mighty eater, as it was proven during a feast held in his honor, when he built a massive sandwich.
He later saved the lives of Furff and a mousebabe from being abducted by the raven Murig, and fatally wounded a smoothworm by stomping on its head. Afterwards, he was given the position of Abbey Warrior and took command of the Sword of Martin to defend and protect the Abbey (this makes him the first hare known to wield the great sword of Redwall).
Bosie also participated in the hunt for the Doomwyte jewels, and was one of the main players responsible for the victory over the Doomwytes, especially when he suffered major Bloodwrath and forced the Doomwytes to retreat. He then helped Zaran the Black collapse the hillside above their lair by chopping at a sycamore under direction from the mole Frubb.
Eventually, Bosie took up the mantle of resident hare of Redwall.
Besides the normal warcry of Eulalia, he had a personal warcry, Bowlaaaayneeee awaaaaa! As a warrior, he took to a calm side.
