I believe that the Wart has the qualities to be an effective ruler. He is brave, respectful, and very clever. These qualities are very important for a ruler. Since the Wart is brave he will be able to overcome many challenges and lead his people in battle without fear. It is very important that the Wart is respectful because if he treats other rulers, nobles, and even common folk with respect they will respect him. His cleverness will help him when dealing with other rulers. The Wart would be an excellent ruler.
The Wart is a very brave person. Throughout the book he faced many challenges and overcame them. You can see just how brave he is when he rescues Dog Boy and Wat from Morgan le Fay's castle. He and Kay went into the castle all by themselves against a very powerful woman. The Wart killed Morgan le Fay with the knife Robin Wood gave him and rescued Dog Boy and Wat successfully. He was very heroic. The Wart was also very brave when he became a merlin and had to prove himself to the other birds in the Mews. He had to perch within reach of Cully and stay there until the other hawks rang their bells three times. The Wart barely escaped Cully's attack before the hawks rang their bells. The Wart had to be very brave to go through that experience.
The Wart is also a very respectful person. Respect is a very important quality to have as a leader. The Wart was very respectful towards the badger. When the Wart went to see the badger he was in a bad mood and threatened to eat a hedgehog. He eventually went to the badger's lair and listened to what he had to say. The badger told him the story about how humans and animals were formed and why the humans have dominion over the animals. The Wart was very respectful to the servants in the castle. He didn't treat them like dirt. He respected them for their hard work. He was nice to them and had conversations with them. Si
