Mustardseed the fairy is a character from William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream. Along with Peaseblossom, Cobweb, and Moth, Mustardseed is one of the royal retainers who accompany Queen Titania in most of the Queen's scenes. The retainers are stock characters with very little character development or individual personality, and are not considered especially desirable roles for actors, nor the subject of extensive analysis by Shakespeare scholars.

Mustardseed in "A Late Symmer Night's Battle"Edit

Mustardseed was one of the royal retainers of Queen Titania of Faerie. She was at the Queen's side throughout the much-publicized humorous dispute with King Oberon over the apprentice Ghosh. Like a large percentage of Faerie's female population, Mustardseed was a former lover of Robin Goodfellow.

Mustardseed was also a soldier in Faerie's standing army. Shortly after the arrival of Ghosh, the army was mobilized when a tribe of German kobolds invaded Faerie.
