Place of Origin:Salamandastron
Weapon: Fists
Death: Unknown
Appears: Lord Brocktree

Southpaw was the twin hare brother of Bobweave and grandson of Stiffener Medick, and was an orphan. They were both champion boxers, and their names reflected this. Southpaw being that he would use a southward punch to finish off his opponent.

The pair left Salamandastron due to the restlessness of youth, and eventually fell in with the court of King Bucko Bigbones, where they met Lord Brocktree and Dorothea Duckfontein Dillworthy.

Southpaw and Bobweave were both quite taken with the latter, and would often end up tussling over things such as the honor to clean out her Hardee Gurdee or carry her haversack. They were also the only two creatures who could endure her less-than-mellifluous singing.

Southpaw and Bobweave decided to help Dorothea win her challenge against Bucko Bigbones. When asked why they didn't challenge Bigbones themselves, each twin said that he couldn't bear the thought of ordering his brother around. In the contest between Bucko and Dorothea, Southpaw and his Bobweave served the food in the feasting challenge, and along with Fleetscut, gladly finished the meal after it was over. After Dorothea won, they joined Brocktree's army and aided in the recapture of Salamandastron from Ungatt Trunn and his Blue Hordes.


  • In boxing terminology, the title "southpaw" is usually a nickname for someone who is left-handed. As both he and his brother Bobweave (bob-and-weave) seem to be named after boxing terms, it may well be that Southpaw was left-pawed.
