atatosk is the name of the squirrel that lives in Yggdrasil, the world tree. It relays news and insults between the serpent Nidhogg who lives in the roots and the eagle who lives in the top of Yggdrasil.

Ratatosk is the squirrel

who there shall run

On the ash-tree Yggdrasil;

From above the words

of the eagle he bears,

And tells them to Nithhogg beneath.

Grimnesmàl (the sayings of Grimnir)

The colour is a reddish brown, inspired by the colour of a squirrel's fur. Chestnut mingles with other hues of brown and red.
