Galea Blackrudder is a skilled herbalist and seer. Blackrudder's not her real name, her real name's Wavedog. She chooses to go by Blackrudder.

Nicknames: Gale, Gael Age: Fifty

Galea is an older black otter with gray eyes. She can see better in her visions than she can with normal right.

She wears a long, blue robe and a green seaglass pendant of a running otter on a thong around her neck. She carries an ashwood staff.

Galea was a former Redwaller, but left Redwall Abbey after being unable to save Sabine Wildlough's life. She moved to Green Isle, but moved to Summerdell after the war because she didn't think she'd be welcomed anywhere else.
