In the novel Watership Down, who is the character, Fiver?
Fiver is a small rabbit, a runt, that has visions that come true. They are often terrible and foretell misfortune for the rabbits of his warren. He is a seer in a traditional sense, and his older brother, Hazel, trusts Fiver. But because of Fiver's visions, he leads the rabbits that follow him and Hazel to Watership Down, a place much safer than the old warren.
In mythological terms, Fiver is a Shaman that has a gift and a message for his people, and the people only have to listen in order to get the gift.
