The Deptford Mice Wiki

The Hawthorn Realm was one of the five royal houses of black squirrels. They were very secretive, and closed their borders to outsiders hundreds of years ago, never to be heard from again. Their queen was said to be an enchantress who cast spells with a hawthorn branch. She wore a gold hawthorn blossom around her neck.

When Morella and Modequai arrived in Greenwich Park, it was rumoured that they were the last survivors of the Hawthorn Realm. However, due to the implication that they are not what they seem, this is unlikely to be true.
