Personality and traits
Heyward is a perfectionist, and he always found fault with the hedges entrusted to his care at Cloud Mountain; he would take his eye for detail to the extreme, so that he would seem silly, as he cared very much for the things that he had charge over--things other rabbits didn't care about; but he had a deep, feeling personality, and desired to do as much as he could for The Cause, to make a good difference in the world.
Heyward is a white-furred rabbit. As a votary, he wears a blue robe.
- The name "Heyward" is of American origin. It is a variation of the surname "Hayward", which was an "Occupational name for a person who protected an enclosed forest".
