rdfs:comment
  • Razzid Wearat was the brutal male corsair captain of the Greenshroud, and a mix of species described as a Wearat, rumored by some to be a weasel-rat cross (not to be confused with Wearet). He wielded a barbed trident, and was said to be horrendously ugly.
  • Later, whilst he is recovering on a solitary island, he has his three spies (Mowlag, Jiboree and Shekra) spy on his army, to find any mutineers amongst them. After he discovers a ferret captain in his army is trying to take his place (and is also having the rest of the crew rebuild the Greenshroud - so that it can travel on land as well as in the sea), he continues to let the rest of his crew think he is dead. However, after reconstruction of the Greenshroud is complete, Razzid makes a grand entrance, beheads the ferret captain and resumes captaincy of the Greenshroud once and for all - before then making plans to conquer Redwall Abbey.

  • Razzid Wearat was the brutal male corsair captain of the Greenshroud, and a mix of species described as a Wearat, rumored by some to be a weasel-rat cross (not to be confused with Wearet). He wielded a barbed trident, and was said to be horrendously ugly. Razzid Wearat made a name for himself during the Winter of Slaughter, when he and his barbarian crew pillaged several coastal areas, leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake. However, he became overly confident, and, ignoring his seer Shekra's omens, he sailed to the High North Coast to do battle with Skor Axehound and his Rogue Crew Sea Otters. Skor and his band saw the ship coming, and caught the marauders in an ambush, setting the Greenshroud ablaze and badly burning Razzid in the process. The wreck of the Greenshroud made its way back to Razzid's home isle of Irgash, where the nearly-fatally wounded Razzid was taken away to a concealed stockade to be treated for his wounds. While he was healing, a ferret captain, Braggio Ironhook, tried to take his place; however, Razzid survived his terrible wounds, though he was badly scarred. At the first opportunity, he beheaded Braggio, and resumed captaincy of his ship. Shekra, concerned at what a second attack on the Rogue Crew might cause, convinced Razzid that Redwall Abbey would be a more rewarding prize, and his crew set sail for the Abbey. Later, Razzid captured Uggo Wiltud and Posybud, who were lost at sea, and tried to force them to tell him the location of Redwall. However, the two young hedgehogs outwitted the none-too-bright vermin crew, and escaped. His luck turned when Shekra captured Drogbuk Wiltud, who, under the influence of the strong ale the vermin fed him, told them the exact directions to Redwall Abbey. During the voyage, morale on the ship ebbed away as the crew encountered many hardships. Razzid also began to lose the respect of his crew for his authority, after he murdered Dirgo for a simple remark and executed Wigsul for supposed spying. He had Twangee assist him as his own spy, and the young weasel kept an eye on other potentially mutinous crew members, especially Mowlag and Jiboree. Upon arriving at Redwall Abbey, Razzid sailed his wheeled ship across the land, straight at it; however, the Wearat had by this time developed a terror of fire, and the sight of a bonfire on the Abbey ramparts dissuaded him from an immediate attack. He sailed off across the flatlands, hoping the Abbeybeasts would think he had gone; he then returned, one wildly stormy night, sailing as fast as he could for the gates in an effort to batter them down. He succeeded, but, unbeknownst to him, the Rogue Crew, with a score of Long Patrol hares and several Guosim shrews, had beaten him there and were lying in wait; this army proceeded to soundly rout the Wearat's crew. Razzid and his cook, Badtooth, escaped into the Abbey kitchens, but were confronted by Posybud and Uggo, the latter hedgehog holding the Sword of Martin. Uggo slew Badtooth, but fumbled and dropped his sword in the process; Razzid began to torture the young hog with his trident, planning on killing him. Posybud retrieved the sword and ran the Wearat through with it; he did not die immediately but came after her with his trident. Redwall's Cellardog, Jum Gurdy, stepped in to help, belting the Wearat in the head with a wooden stave and finishing Razzid off once and for all.
  • Later, whilst he is recovering on a solitary island, he has his three spies (Mowlag, Jiboree and Shekra) spy on his army, to find any mutineers amongst them. After he discovers a ferret captain in his army is trying to take his place (and is also having the rest of the crew rebuild the Greenshroud - so that it can travel on land as well as in the sea), he continues to let the rest of his crew think he is dead. However, after reconstruction of the Greenshroud is complete, Razzid makes a grand entrance, beheads the ferret captain and resumes captaincy of the Greenshroud once and for all - before then making plans to conquer Redwall Abbey. On his way to Mossflower country, he and the rest of the Greenshroud crew callously slaughter some young Long Patrol hares at Salamandastron - and Long Patrol captain Rake Nightfur and some other hares travel to Redwall, to avenge their fallen comrades. Later - when they are lost at sea - two young hedgehogs (Uggo Wiltud and Posybud) are captured by Razzid and his crew. Razzid, discovering that Uggo comes from Redwall, makes the mistake of assuming he will automatically know the way. Thus, he threatens the life of Posybud, saying that he will harm her if Uggo doesn't tell him how to get to Redwall. But, Uggo doesn't know - and the two hedgehogs are later able to escape from the Greenshroud. The Greenshroud does persue them, to try and get them back. But, the Greenshroud gets stuck in a swamp - and, following this and being attacked by insects, Razzid has two of his crew try to get Uggo and Posybud back. But, as luck would have it, Shekra instead manages to find an elderly hedgehog named Drogbuk Wiltud - and kindly invite him onto the Greenshroud, so that she (and Razzid) can manipulate him into showing them the way to Redwall. Razzid goes to torture the information from Drogbuk, but Shekra manages to persuade him not to do so - pointing out that it would be better that way. And, after getting him drunk on ale, Razzid and Shekra do indeed so learn the way to Redwall. Drogbuk later escapes, following an attack launched on the Greenshroud - after Razzid violently turns on him. As they later set sail for Mossflower, the Greenshroud spots some Guosim shrews sleeping whilst campaign - and Razzid has them launch a surprise massacre on the shrews, killing most (if not all) of them. Some (like Jum Gurdy [the Abbey celler-keeper], Uggo and Posy) survive the onslaught, after having hidden from sight. When he arrives at Redwall, Razzid sailed the Greenshroud straight through Mossflower - and straight at Redwall. However, thanks to him having been burnt by the Rogue Crew, he has developed a fear of fire - and, after the Abbey creatures (having been previously warned by a dream that Uggo had, that Razzid would be coming) starts a bonfire upon the ramparts, Razzid is dissuaded from attacking immediately. He then sails off across the flatlands, hoping to persuade the Redwallers that he has now gone. However, when it is a stormy night, he does return - using the wind to increase the speed of how fast the Greenshroud is sailing across the land, to make sure he has a better chance of ramming down the Abbey gates. He succeeds in doing so, but is surprised ambushed by a combined might of Nightfur's Long Patrol hares, several Guosim shrews and the entire Rogue Crew (who have returned to finish Razzid once and for all). However, Razzid is able to trick them - and he and the weasel cook Badtooth (whom he has used, along with Badtooth's nephew, to spy on Mowlag, Jiboree and Shekra, among others) escape the ensuing battle. Eventually, after having hidden behind an overturned cart in the orchard, Razzid and Badtooth try to break into the Abbey kitchen. However, the noise alerts Redwallers who are in the kitchen at the time - and they fetch Uggo, who (along with Posy) has returned to Redwall. After they manage to break open the window, Razzid has Badtooth enter the kitchen first - but Badtooth is slain by Uggo, who is carrying the sword of the legendary Martin the Warrior. Razzid enters and steps over Badtooth's body, callously saying it serves him for being a fat idiot. After Uggo inadvertantly drops Martin's sword, Razzid pushes him to the floor - and begins torturing him with the trident he wields, intent on slaying the young hedgehog. Posybud then retrives the sword from the floor and stabs Razzid with it, but he doesn't die - and as he advances menacingly towards the two young hedgehogs, Jum Gurdy (having returned to Redwall) hits him over the head with a stave, and it is this that finally kills Razzid...
