A common brown forest rat (with a lovely white belly), of middle age. Squeakers is a talkative and well fed girl, in the prime of her ratty life.


When Scout Middleton lets her, Squeakers loves to climb in the rigging of the ship. Much to the disgust of the ships cook, who fails to see the difference between Squeakers and the ship’s rats that get into his stores.

At other times Squeakers tends to live in Scout Middelton’s backpack.
