Yes, let's come to a mini-role (in the true sense of the word) :)

I really like the voles. How they always imitate Hawkbit. Yet the scene, where Hawkbit tries to talk to Clover and she must always laugh because the voles are imitating him... i love it  :D

I remember them. It shows that being a hero can have its downsides, especially when your fans are so obsessed with you that they will follow you everywhere. :D

What I find sweet about this whole situation is that the voles decided Hawkbit is their hero after Dandelion had told them about his exploits. I imagine the voles asked Dandelion to tell them about some heroic stuff Watership Down rabbits did in the past. Did he choose to give them a story about examples of derring-do pulled off by Hazel or Bigwig or Blackberry or Campion? No. He told them about brave things that Hawkbit did. If that's not true friendship, then I don't know what is. :)

Yes, Hawkbit was always the one who strained their friendship.

Yes, that competition over Heather didn't help their friendship, but in the end they reconciled with each other. :)
