Squirrel appears to be cautious, as he continually tries to keep Daffodil and Violet from raising their voices while outside of Valor, preferring to stay behind with Ivy, Daffodil, and Violet while Foxglove scouted the situation with the ice dragon.
Squirrel was guarding the exit to Valor alongside Foxglove. He taught Ivy how to become a Wingwatcher illegally and was known for illegally conspiring against Heath, Ivy's father. He also went up into a tree with Violet, Daffodil, and Ivy to make sure they didn't get hurt by any dragons.
Squirrel was there when Ivy, Daffodil, and Violet went searching for Heath's hidden treasure. Later in the book, he was mentioned to be taken prisoner by Heath.
- "I'll just stay here and keep you company, […] Not because we don't trust you, but because we remember being young Wingwatchers, too."
