Damn you into the darkness! I'll not be made to betray my Lord Hrethel!
―Heglyr's last words

Heglyr was a Knight of the Moon in the bat army, captain of the ninth colony. He was wounded in the attack on the Hazel Realm, taken prisoner by the squirrels of that land, and interrogated. He maintained a haughty attitude and assured his captors that Rohgar and his army would return that night to finish what they had started and destroy the Hazel Realm and all there. Lady Ninnia had the idea to send him with Ysabelle and her entourage to serve as a guide to Greenreach, and implied that if he did not give them the information they wanted, torture might be used. Horrified at the thought of being made to betray his fellow bats, Heglyr committed suicide by impaling himself on a squirrel guard's spear.
