Franchise: Redwall

Slagar the Cruel is a fox who was once known as Chickenhound; son of Sela the the healer. During the war between Cluny the Scourge and the Redwallers, Sela and Chickenhound were double dealers of information. Eventually they were caught and Cluny killed Sela but Chickenhound survived and was taken in by the Redwallers. Chickenhound betrayed their kindness and during one of the battles started to loot everything of value he could find. He was stopped by brother Methuselah but Chickenhound killed him and ran. In Mossflower woods he hid only to encounter the giant adder Asmodeus. Chickenhound miraculously survived but was disfigured from the attack.

Chickenhound adopted a silken harlequin colored head mask to cover his disfigurement, renamed himself Slagar, and became a slave trader for the kingdom of Malkariss. Slagar blames the Redwallers for his disfigurement and vowed revenge.

In the cartoon series based on the books by Brian Jacques the character was voiced by two different voice actors. In the Redwall saga Chickenhound was voiced by Jonathan Wilson. In the Mattimeo saga Slagar was voiced by Tim Curry.

Comparing both performances almost seems a bit harsh, as both are for different phases of the character. Wilson aptly conveys the sneaky aspect of the younger Chickenhound and doesn't feel out of place. Having said that, though, Tim Curry absolutely goes to town with the older, nastier Slagar the Cruel. The man had a real passion for doing villainous voices, and this is yet another great role for him. Both did very well. I honestly can't choose which one I liked better.
