Gwendolyn is a female mouse and the matriarch of the Mouse Guard.

Characteristics and PersonalityEdit

Gwendolyn has cream-colored fur and typically wears blue clothing, most commonly a ceremonial gown with a blue cloak fastened with a brass ring. Although her duties usually see her behind a desk, she is known to be proficient with a halberd.

Gwendolyn tends to take a very professional approach to her duties as Matriarch, although in her personal writings there is an undercurrent of uncertainty of the future of the guard.


Early Life Edit

Gwendolyn was born to a weaver in Lockhaven, but was orphaned at a very early age. She was raised in Thistledown by an adopted mother by the name of Leah, who, like her birth mother, worked as a weaver. In her teens, she joined the Guard and became a guardmouse.

Becoming the Matriarch Edit

Gwendolyn's patrol years were short before she was soon needed to rise to leadership. Her predecessor died very suddenly and Gwendolyn became one of the youngest Mouse Guard matriarchs known in recorded history. She had inducted many of the mice serving in the Fall and Winter of 1152.

War with the WeaselsEdit

During Gwendolyn's early years as a matriarch, she was forced to wage war with a hostile group of weasels from Darkheather.

Midnight's RebellionEdit

"Sadie, please travel to the northern shore post of Calogero..."
During the Fall of 1152, Gwendolyn sent three of her best Guardmice Kenzie, Saxon and Lieam to investigate the disappearance of a merchant mouse who never arrived at his destination. During the same season, she also sent the Guardmouse Sadie on a mission to find out why Conrad (an oldfur stationed at Calogero) had not replied to the Guard's mail.
