Adders of Mossflower
« on: July 06, 2011, 12:27:08 AM »

They made appearances in the series from beginning to end, throughout all known history of Mossflower. In many times the Quarry northeast of the Abbey was a home of theirs. They are hypnotic, hate about everything it seems, and generally are a serious problem. Shrews are by far the most terrified, they just can't deal with the fear adders put on them. Adders use fear as their greatest weapon.

Adders are defiantly somewhat mythical in the Redwall series, and legends abound in their descent and location, behavior and mood.
I'd say they were one of the Abbey's greatest enemies when they showed up.

It'd be cool if there was a snake hoard that tried to take the abbey. That'd make a good book...

That would be interesting. I don't think we've ever seen adders work together outside of Triss, and they hardly had a choice about that. A snake baddie - not like in Doomwyte, but an adder warlord in effect - would be awesome.

In Outcast of Redwall, there was tons of adders in the Quarry which had fun attacking two vermin who wanted treasure. One had a battleaxe.

But yes, adders are very indepedent, and never once worked outside their species. Baliss the Slayer is not an exception.

My favourite adders are Zassaliss, Harssacs, and Sesstra. It made me feel creepy just reading about them.  :o it was cool how they learned to move together, but I was a bit grossed out when I realized the the awful smell came fromt their wounds.

I think you're remembering Zassaliss and his two siblings from Triss, there was a large amount of adders in the Quarry in Outcast of Redwall

Maris is actually right.

The scene that y'all are referring to is when Balefur, the Northern fox in Outcast of Redwall, is tricked by Nightshade into entering the quarry in search of treasure. He takes along two younger foxes with him to pick up the treasure. When they're surrounded by adders, the first one jumps into a deep pool and drowns; the other one, along with Balefur, are hypnotized and killed by the snakes.

Forgot those two.
So, I was actually originally right, except I forgot the number.
