Mouse Guard: The Wolfsbane Saga
Battle of Lockhaven
“We will fight for and defend all that is ours.”
―Matriarch Gwendolyn, Fall 1152
The Battle of Lockhaven was a conflict that occurred during the Fall of 1152 when the traitorous Guardmouse Midnight brought his army of followers to Lockhaven’s gates. Dissatisfied with the Guard’s role in the Territories, Midnight sought to take over Lockhaven under the authority of the Black Axe, and rule over all common mice as a tyrant.
His attempt to conquer Lockhaven failed, and the Guard’s matriarch Gwendolyn had her mice march him beyond the Scent Border, far away from the protection of the Guard he so desperately sought to destroy.
The exact recounting of the events have been lost to memory. However, a few dedicated Guardmice scholars, including Matriarch Isolde, have read and memorized a detailed accounting of these unfortunate events.
