Mother Huggen was an elderly hedgehog who saved to-be culled children and is a member of The Circle. It is unknown if she has children.
Mother Huggen is an elderly and kind hedgehog who always showed kindness. She aided Captain Padra and Captain Lady Arran in saving babies that were to be culled under Husk's commands along with Lugg's daughter, Moth.
When Urchin falls through the window after the Spring Festivals, she helps look after him and hide him.
Mother Huggen and others take the little ones into the Mole Palace while Catkin is missing. All the while, it is pouring and several homes are flooded and evacuated.
She, along with Moth and other maids of The Tower take the children of Mistmantle deep underground to be safe from the attacking ravens.
When children were sent to the old palace, she and Moth take care of them, and when Furtle and Ouch went missing, she starts to cry and is angry with herself.
