Mawk is a doubting but innovative male weasel. He is easily frightened, and often considered a coward by the other members of Sylver's band. Mawk is quite good at the gambling game holly-hockers. He was introduced to it when he attempted to best a group of mole bandits at it, in hopes that they would release his imprisoned friends if he won.
Mawk is a cowardly weasel, but sometimes, usually in situations with dire consequences, he pulls himself together and is almost heroic.
