Droggtail was a maimed and disfigured vixen, Seer to King Mortspear. Her growth was stunted after she suffered a blow to the back from mortspear himself. previously, Mortspear had killed her mate, the vixen harbored a deep hatred for him because of this but did no dare to show it openly.
Droggtail fell out of favor with the wildcat after she ordered the death of Lord Cetruler, whom Mortspear had wanted alive. Mortspear forced Droggtail and captain Graul to scour the caves in search of eighteen hares that had escaped his clutches. instead she and captain Graul tried to escape from Salamandastron. Droggtail escaped and was washed out with the tide.
