Vermin young?
« on: January 12, 2013, 10:49:34 PM »

Have you ever asked your self where are the vermin young, they have to be babies at some point. The only ones I can think of are Veil (The Outcast of Redwall)  Vitch (Mattimeo) And the little band of vermin young in (The Rogue Crew)

The books are pretty lacking on any info about vermin society in general, sadly--it's one area that usually has to be filled in by fans. I think a lot of people have their own headcanons about this, which differ a bit from person to person. I really wish we'd seen more about it in canon, though.

This is kind of like the topic I made, but maybe they have like nurse-vermin who take care of them in groups or something.

its one of the bad side effects of the redwall formula i geuss brian didint add them much as it would be a bit sad to have the little vermin branded as bad.

If we're looking at how Mr. Jacques would have written vermin mothers in, it probably be something similar to what we saw in Outcast--Veil is raised by a nursing female or mother, though little care is given in raising them properly.  Hence they end up vermin because the parents either don't know any better, don't care, or don't want them to be any different.

In Outcast of Redwall, during the scene where the crows were attacking the horde, I recall reading something along the lines of those with families and young ones claiming the center of the group, so as to be safe from attack. Good parenting, I guess...? XD

Then there was the beginning of Taggerung, too, with whatshername and her son, Tagg's rival -- gosh, I can't remember, I need to reread that book! -- I've always figured that was a good indication of how vermin brought up their young. She complained about having to leave her son on the beach while searching for baby Tagg's food, but evidently it didn't bother her enough to bring him with her or find a nurse, or anything like that.

I think my brain went on vacation when school started up again, I can't for the life of me think of her name..

Yeah but this topic was about vermin who were REALLY young. The vermin gang was mostly young (14-20 years if they were people), but not that young
