Cornflower the Warrior?

Martin wouldn't be happy if he found out about this. She's not Matthias. :p

OT: If anyone's wondering why this is a cut out of her, I found a DVD cover of season 2 on IMDB, but had to edit it so she wasn't covered up by the border, and that meant the whole background had to go. Haven't found a good image that would serve as a background yet.

Why do the men always complain about this stuff?  It fits like a glove....a heavy, sharp glove...

"Mariel's got nothing on me."

(it's surprising how prominent she is on the second DVD, that you'd think it was all about her or she did something amazing that outclassed everything else. But her moment as a warrior is, what, only a few minutes long? And it's not a moment I'd think back on when recalling "Mattimeo". After all, there's Slagar, the multiple times the good guys were in trouble, the crows invading the Abbey, and Cheek. Maybe the publisher just thought it'd look really good diversity-wise to have a female hero on there. Seeing Cornflower like that is probably one of her more memorable moments, yet I never saw her as being a major character. But you wouldn't immediately see that art if you had the complete Season 2 set which had a slipcover of Mattimeo and I think Tess on it)

"I'll be the next warrior of Redwall, you'll see!"

OT: I actually find Cornflower to be a major character. In the credits of season 1 she's always listed second (right after Matthias) and in season 2, she's listed fourth (after Slagar, Mattimeo and Matthias). In seasons 1 and 2, she's the lead female. Though I find it strange she's credited in fourth when she did more in season 2 than in season 1.
