The Long Patrol is a specialized, elite army of hares that live at Salamandastron and are commanded by the resident Badger Ruler of the mountain. As in a military, they are divided into a specific hierarchy of rank and function. Though hares have served under a badger at Salamandastron for as long as anybeast can remember, it was the first modern badger lord, Brocktree, that organized them into an actual regiment that became henceforth known as the Long Patrol.
Hares of the Long Patrol are perilous in battle and are feared by vermin everywhere. Though they are occasionally lazy and almost always eat a lot, the hares are good creatures that exist to rid the world of evil.
