Wensel was an owl, a gifted artist at the Great Ga'Hoole Tree. He was well known for his extrordinary illustrations in books in the great tree's library.


The War of the Ember

After Bess fought a Boreal Owl and discovered that he knew she was hiding the Ember of Hoole, she told Coryn and the rest of the Council at the Great Tree. They decided on a plan to remove the Ember from the Palace of Mists and take it to the Middle Kingdoms. Wensel, along with Ruby and Fritha, was selected to carry one of three botkins in HALO; one of the botkins had the real Ember in it and the other two had fakes inside.

Wensel was selected for the mission because of his artistic turn of mind. It was this turn of mind that distracted him while flying with his burden; he began to daydream if the Ember was really in his botkin. This distraction allowed Tarn and two other Burrowing Owls to ambush him. If it wasn't for Soren and Gylfie following him at a higher altitude and the intervention of Tavis and Cletus, the Great Gray brothers, he would have probably ended up dead.
