Cornflower is an
anthropomorphic mousein the Redwallseries of books by Brian Jacques. She was voiced by Rachel Murphy in the full-cast audiobook of "Redwall" and by Alison Pill and Melissa McIntyre in the television series of "Redwall" and "Mattimeo", respectively.
Cornflower is the pretty and kind young fieldmouse whom Matthias fell in love with. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fieldmouse, and after marrying Matthias, becomes mother of Mattimeo and grandmother of Martin the Second. She is a skilled cook and often wore headbands.
In "Redwall", Cornflower was of great help to
Redwall Abbeyduring the Late Rose Summer War and was able to fend off Cluny the Scourgeduring one of his attacks. She threw a lantern onto his siege tower which caused it to burst into flames.
Mattimeo", when Redwall was under attack by General Ironbeak, Cornflower came up with an idea to dress up as the ghost of Martin the Warrior to scare the superstitious birds. Her plan worked, and the rooks and magpies became extremely frightened. She would have continued her masquerade, but Abbot Mordalfus then told her to stop because she could have been killed. Matthias and Mattimeo still were not home yet, and Cornflower began to get very worried. But finally, as she was staring out from the walltop, she saw them coming back and ran down to greet them.
