Del is not a hero. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you the same. Del has spent his entire life trying to stay out of trouble. He prefers reading and spending his days out of harms way. When an attack on a Longtails squad happens right outside his house, he can’t help but intervene and at least warn them of the coming danger. This one act of bravery starts Del down a path to learning of a secret locked deep inside him, as well as joining the Longtails in their quest to better lives across the Mouselands. It just goes to show that if one is going to commit to a life of not taking action, they shouldn’t let ANYTHING deter them from it.
