Though he is an amazing fighter, Errol has never been very good at thinking before acting. He usually prefers to just charge into a battle or quest without planning too much, figuring it will be all right in the end anyway.
Eight seasons before the main events of Defenders of Redwall, he left with a few other creatures to bring back the Sword of Martin, which had been stolen, but he never returned.
- He is named after Errol Flynn, who played Rob in a Robin Hood movie that I really like. :)
- Errol leaving little Hiccup behind to go on a quest, never returning, and Hiccup going off to find him, is similar to what happened with Martin and Luke. And I seriously didn't even mean to do that. O.o
