History

"The Fox in the Woods" is a old Callowan song written during Proceran occupation. The song is supposedly about Alistair the Fox, who is "the closest thing to a trickster king my home had ever had" according to Catherine. Based off context, Alistair was a thief king who led a resistance against Proceran occupation from the countrysides of Callow.

Lyrics

Run the hounds, rides the hunter

His spear in hand, banner aflutter.

Charging that way, this one baying

Trampling the paths, again raging.

But we know, oh we know,

That in the woods, the fox is king

Yes we know, oh we know,

That in the woods, the fox is king.

The lyrics below are a part of the song but its not confirmed where their placement should be. Presumably they are the second verse.

The henhouse stands unlatched

All within, by the fox snatched.

So here they go, once again,

Chasing a red tail into the glen.

But we know, oh we know,

That in the woods, the fox is king

Yes we know, oh we know,

That in the woods, the fox is king.

Notes

The Fox in the Woods is first mentioned in Book VI,Chapter 17: Felonious and receives its second verse in Chapter 18: Clout
