[I'm still looking for images for most of these so if they don't have an image linked then you can use whatever cat you think fits their physical description! :3 Feel free to claim any of these even though this is far from being finished ^u^;; If you're interested don't hesitate to say so! <3]
These cats are either family or mates, and are vital to Ashenfang's life.
Shadowstrike [x] || 61 moons || Elder
While he wasn't a typically doting father, no one can deny that he loves his family more than life itself. He used to spend hours telling stories to his kits, or playing games to occupy their vivid imaginations. He was an excellent warrior in his youth, gaining the respect and friendship of his clan, and many see much of him in his son Ashenfang. After the death of his mate, Dovespring, he lost much of his self and retired to the elders' den a shatter husk of the warrior he was. While some of his mind has returned, he is still obviously a bit 'distant.'
A long furred tom of fairly large size, A smokey tom with darker points and some tabby markings around his legs. Eyes are green or yellow.
Poplarstep || 46 moons || Warrior
In her youth she proved to be particularly selfish and ambitious in a way that culminated in a most tragic event. The death of Shellnose was a terrible accident, but in truth it was just that: an accident. Still, due to her undeniable involvement in the incident her family has fiercely disowned her, and she has moved as an outcast on the fringes of their bonds. [Whether or not she has any relationship with Hollystream, Quailwing, Spiderleap, or even Shadowstrike is completely up to whoever claims these cats, but Ashenfang and Boulderheart have no love for her as of now. Her relationship with the rest of the clan or whether she's even still in the clan is also completely up to whoever claims her.]
Grey, black, or brown tabby markings over a white or pale colored pelt (there should be a fair amount of the paler color) with green or yellow eyes.
Boulderheart [x] || 46 moons || Warrior
Older brother to Ashenfang, this tom grew out of his rambunctious days rather quickly after the loss of their brother, Shellnose. That day still remains as a constant thorn in his side, and he is reminded of his inability to save his brother every time he catches a glimpse of his reflection. He holds a deep and utter loathing for his sister, Poplarstep, and refuses to even look at her to this day. Still, with the other members of his family and the rest of the clan he is quite a welcoming and relatively happy tom. He possesses a quiet sort of kindness which makes itself known in small actions and brief words. While he might not be extremely close with Ashenfang, they certainly aren't distant and it isn't odd to see them hunting together or on the same patrol. Occasionally they will share a meal, but both toms are more interested in seeing their younger siblings succeed than reliving the past in each other's presence. Despite Spiderleg's ailment, Boulderheart grew quite close to his youngest brother, perhaps as a way to make up for time lost between he and Shellnose. At any rate, he is extremely protective of his remaining family and if you want to make him mad you need only threaten one of them.
A rather large, brown or gray tabby with green eyes. His muzzle is scarred and twisted into a permanent half-smirk, and he is missing half of one of his ears. One of his hind legs is mottled with scars from being bitten by a dog on the day Shellnose was killed.
Hollystream [x] || 31 moons || queen or warrior
Hollystream has long been considered the most docile of the family, and she possesses a tranquil sort of calm along with a delicate grace. A very feminine creature, she was often ruffled by her sister's more energetic antics and the two often find themselves at odds despite their closeness. This fae has a very distinct mothering quality and can be described somewhat as the glue which binds this family so completely. She hates the idea that her siblings might be hurting in any way, and does her best to ensure they are taken care of even before herself. Hollystream is the closest to Spiderleg, and tries to find reason to speak with him every day if only for a short while. It broke her heart when he failed his apprenticeship and was forced into an early retirement to the elder's den, but she takes comfort in knowing that at least he has Shadowstrike to keep him constant company and an endless list of tasks he can undertake around camp to keep himself busy. A soft spoken creature, she is far too passive to truly enjoy the brutish work of a warrior and would rather spend her days seeing to the needs of cats around camp or hunting. She absolutely detests fighting, and goes out of her way to avoid it. Shadowstrike has often noted that of his daughters, she is the most like their mother, Dovespring. [Any relationship with Poplarstep is completely up to whoever claims this girl.]
A slender, mostly white or all white she-cat with blue eyes. She is of no notable size, falling in the range of average or slightly below.
Quailwing [x] || 31 moons || warriorCLAIMED BY ALEE
Like her older brothers, Quailwing was quite the whirlwind as a kit; however, she never quite outgrew that energy and she remains quite excitable today. A dedicated she-cat, she throws herself fullheartedly into everything she does with an almost reckless abandon. Though she lacks her sister's more mothering nature, she definitely does her part to keep her family connected and perfectly embodies the idea of a kid-sister constantly nagging for attention. With how desperate she is to be the best she can be for everyone, it isn't a rare occurrence that she spreads herself too thin and suffers for it. Her heart really is too big for her own good, and she wears it plainly for anyone to strike at in passing. Though she is good at putting up a brave front, the careless and apathetic nature of Ashenfang's personality can sometimes cut her deeper than he realizes. Quailwing tends to take things to heart, forming strong attachments quickly with cats she maybe shouldn't, and more often than not she can end up upset over a sideways comment taken the wrong way. The most emotional of the family, her moods can swing from one end of the spectrum to the other, but there is hardly any sort of middle ground to be found with her. [Any relationship with Poplarstep is completely up to whoever claims this girl.]
A brown or gold tabby with yellow or green eyes. She is of no notable size, falling in the range of average or slightly below.
Spiderleg [x] || 22 moons || elder
The youngest and last kit to come of Shaowstrike and Dovespring's mating, Spiderleg plays an interesting roll within the relations of his family. In his early youth he desperately wanted to be a warrior, and realized in no way why he couldn't. He worked hard to do his best as an apprentice, but when the verdict came that he would never be able to become a true warrior he took it fairly hard. To this day he holds the hope that maybe by some miracle he will be able to become a warrior, but outwardly he has accepted the fact that it simply isn't going to happen. While he spends much of his time in the company of Hollystream or Shadowstrike or doing odd jobs around camp, whenever he sees one of his warrior siblings he can't help but bombard them for information on how their latest patrol or hunting trip went. He loves to listen to stories of old battles and alliances, and has retained an almost kit-like awe toward most warriors. Quailwing would be the cat he is closest to aside from Hollystream as she is the most easily convinced to sit still and tell him everything he wants to know, but he holds a strong adoration for his older brothers and lights up in their presence especially if one of them addresses him directly. [Any relationship with Poplarstep is completely up to whoever claims this guy.]
Being the runt of his litter he is on the small side for a tom and has a gangly appearance made more so by his twisted leg. A black, medium to long furred cat with green or yellow eyes.
These cats play more minor roles in Ashenfang's daily life, and their names can be changed if need be.
Troutwhisker || 20 moons || warriorCLAIMED BY BERETTA
Ashenfang's second apprentice. While she holds no spectacular skill in fighting she is an amazing tracker, and uses this ability to boost her hunting skill. An energetic and dedicated warrior.
A calico she-cat of any size with any eye color.
Stormpelt || 14 moons || warrior
A fairly even tempered tom who became quite serious about his warrior duties thanks to Ashenfang's strict mentoring. Even though he is a hard worker, he can be a bit lazy at times and he strongly values his down time.
A blue or gray cat with any eye color.TAWNYGAZE
These cats are either family or mates, and are vital to Tawnygaze's daily life.
Mapleclaw [x] || 33 moons || warrior
Tawnygaze's only full-blooded sibling; while they were somewhat close during kithood, the two have since fallen apart drastically. The distance between them began to grow in their early youth when it was discovered their mother truly was no such relation to them. Mapleclaw took the truth badly, and turned her disappointment into a burning resentment toward their father. She blames Waspnose for their sorry upbringing at the paws of Thistleleap, and begrudges her sister for forgiving him so easily. Since she has become a warrior, the two have hardly spoken though Tawnygaze consistently tries to rekindle some sort of relationship with her sister. Mapleclaw throws herself into her warrior duties with an almost vengeful determination. Something darker is growing within this she-cat, though, and Tawnygaze fears for what might become of her sister if she remains this hateful and brooding sort. [How Mapleclaw acts around other clan cats is completely up to whoever claims her.]
A ginger tabby and white cat, preferably with medium to long fur (courtesy of their true mother). Green, yellow, or orange eyes.
Waspnose [x] || 54 moons || warriorCLAIMED BY SKYY
A dedicated father if nothing else, Waspnose did his best to bring his children up with love and care. They are the light of his life, and he loves all of them dearly despite what his ex-mate might try to say or has said in the past. It's hard to say whether or not he loves Thistleleap any longer, or if he regrets his past transgressions with the late Applefur, but he has never let any mistake tarnish his love for his children. In her youth, Tawnygaze spent much of her time seeking the solace of her father's affectionate presence, and would often spend the night on the edge of the nursery wrapped in the protective comfort of burrowing into his side. While they don't spend as much time together now, their bond is still unbreakably strong and it isn't rare to see them in each others company. A true regret is the failed relationship between himself and Mapleclaw. While he still loves the daughter that shuns him so completely, and has tried for many moons to patch things between them, he has long since accepted that until she decides it's time to forgive there will be nothing but hurt and anger on her end. [His current relationship with his other children, Thistleleap, and the rest of the clan is completely up to whoever claims this guy.]
A ginger tabby with or without some white markings. Green, yellow, or orange eyes.
Thistleleap || 53 moons || warrior or queen
Thistleleap loves her children with the fierceness of one about to lose them. She coddled them through kithood, with the acceptance of Tawnygaze and Mapleclaw, and no mother could possibly have been as proud as she when they passed through their apprentice and warrior ceremonies. Perhaps she could have continued on with this bias, choosing her blood kits over the fostered products of her ex-mate's infidelity; however, something has begun to change in the she-cat's mind and heart in regard to the kits she once wrote off so easily. While Mapleclaw with hardly look at her without a twisted hiss rising to her maw, Tawnygaze was always the softer of the two and it is upon her whom Thistleleap has chosen to focus her little rebirth. After Tawnygaze's accident in the river which left one of her hind legs almost unusable, Thistleleap has had a considerable change of heart. While it is slow to show itself, she is interested in Tawnygaze and Mapleclaw's well being and any interactions with them are stiff with regretted past words. She wants to make amends with her foster kits, desperately, but she has no idea how. [Any relationship with Waspnose is completely up to whoever claims this cat. Please PM me upon claiming her because I have an idea that could be supercalafragalisticawesomesauce!! ^u^]
A gray or blue she cat with or without tabby and/or white markings; long furred. Green, or blue eyes.
These cats play more minor rolls in Tawnygaze's daily life, and their names can be changed if need be.
Hailpelt || 33 moons || warrior
This tom was quite the whirlwind as a kit who grew into a respectable young warrior; albeit with much hard-knocks and stern words from his mentor. As a kit he regarded his foster siblings with an awkward sort of "survivors" guilt, and there are times when this is still displayed; especially when in the presence of Mapleclaw. [This guy is pretty much free reign for whoever claims him!]
A blue-gray classic tabby with green or blue eyes.
Sedgewhisker || 33 moons || warrior
As a kit she was exceedingly close to her mother, but as she grew out of her kithood she began to garner more and more attention from males of the clan which drew her away from her mother's side. Somewhat vain, she always has to look her best before doing anything, and she loves attention - especially from males. Likes to be in charge, and is constantly using the excuse "because I'm the oldest." [This girl is pretty much free reign for whoever claims her!]
A beautiful, gray or blue she cat with or without splashes of white; long fur. Green or blue eyes.
Jaystrike || 36 moons || warrior
Though she and Tawnygaze were once quite close, when the latter confessed feelings of romantic nature Jaystrike awkwardly tried to explain she lacked similar feelings, but the hurt Tawnygaze had already raced away. For moons after Jaystrike was shut out by her friend, each attempt to reconnect with the younger warrior shot down with some half-worded excuse, or she was avoided completely. It was during this time that she met and fell in love with a tom, their coupling resulting in the news of kits shortly after Tawnygaze became apprentice to the medicine cat. Here, the two rekindled their fast friendship, but with so many things on her mind and the responsibilities of keeping up with her warrior duties and Tawnygaze keeping up with her tasks as the medicine cat, they don't often find time to spend with each other. Though they still consider each other close friends, there is still a slight distance between them that was absent in their youth.
A pretty she-cat of any coloration; any eye color.
Pale-eye || 51 moons || warrior or elder
Former mentor to Tawnygaze, and previously known as Sootcloud, Pale-eye is a dedicated and level headed she-cat. She would often give wise council to her apprentice, and Tawnygaze values her opinion more than most other cats in the clan. It isn't rare for the two to be seen sharing tongues or eating a meal together, or simply relaxing with some pleasant conversation. [She is pretty open, so long as nothing conflicts with what is written in Tawnygaze's bio.]
A pale colored she-cat with smokey markings, and one cream, blind eye. Green or blue eyes - or remaining eye cx.WOLFSBANE
These cats are either family or mates and are vital to Wolfsbane's daily life.
Plague || 37 moons || right-paw
Though Plague didn't initially jump into the life of a rogue, even turning down his brother's offers in the beginning, he has certainly learned to relish in the freedoms given by his brother's status and he loves every moment of black-hearted glee he can afford. Being the right-paw, or second in command, to his brother's expansive street gang has earned him a fair amount of respect, and what respect it hasn't earned him his own ruthless power has. Everyone knows him as Wolf's brother, and the cat that helped him overthrow the previous Leo, and they know he is not someone whose bad side you want to become acquainted with. Comparing the two, Plague is much more set in his emotions than his almost bi-polar sibling. He has an almost lethargic apathy that hangs upon his shoulders, and even in the midst of battle it is rare to see his expression falter from a deadpan stare. Most of his emotions are simply masks thrown up to appease the unspoken wants of his brother and Leo. Loyal unquestioningly, he doesn't hesitate to do Wolf's dirty work, and due to the amount of freedom and power his brother has given him within the gang, he has never considered trying to take power away from his sibling. [His history is pretty open during his time as a kittypet, and up till now even just so long as it doesn't conflict with what's in Wolf's bio.]
A brown tabby, or a black cat with or without some white markings. Yellow, or green eyes. Has a significant amount of scars from the many battles he's seen on the streets.
Whisper || 37 moons || assassin/puppet
Whisper enjoyed her time as a kittypet, in fact, she'd never had any desire to be anything other than the pampered pet of her twoleg family. However, she made the mistake of trusting her brother when he vaguely lured her away from the safety of her twoleg nest, which resulted in her being delivered right into the wicked paws of Wolfsbane. Though the two were siblings, the atrocities that passed between them that night were anything but familial. Wolfsbane never disclosed what went on in his den that night, but the physical and mental scars he left on her were apparent. Once a proud and defiantly stubborn she-cat, Whisper has become little more than a puppet on a string. Blindly obedient to her brother's commands, she would follow Wolf's orders even if it were to her own suicide. She is most often used as an attack dog, taught by both her siblings how to fight and scrap with the street cats, and over the moons since her capture she has become quite the little she-devil. Though her name has always been Whisper, Wolfsbane never changed it to something more suiting of a rogue due to an interesting little tick she picked up after her time spent getting brainwashed by her brother. Rather than arguing, or complaining, or showing any outward form of resistance to her brother's commands, she will mutter nonsense to herself until the task has been complete. It also mirrors her deadly silence, of which Wolf is particularly proud to display regularly. [Her past is fairly open so long as nothing conflicts with what is written in Wolf's history.]
A blue or black tabby marked calico with any color eyes. She was once extremely pretty, however, marked as she is by her brother and her life on the streets her beauty is now more of a grotesque resemblance of the cat she used to be.BRIAR-ROSE
These cats are either family or mates, and are vital to Briar-rose's daily life.
____ (previously Lizardpaw) || 35 moons || loner
Brother to Briar-rose, the two didn't always see eye to eye. Growing up, Briar-rose took his kindness for weakness and condemned him for it. It wasn't until the death of their brother spurred her to realize blood was more important than strength that she truly realized how much he meant to her. However, by then it was too late. Lizardpaw had made the decision to leave. Since he left he has had no contact with his sister, and it's unclear whether he's kept tabs on the rest of his family or clan at all. [His past is wide open after he leaves the clan, just make sure nothing conflicts with what's in Briar's bio before then. I'd like for them to have some sort of reconciliation at some point but that can be up to you!]
A brown or grey, long furred tabby with splashes of white on his chest and belly. Green, yellow, or blue eyes.
These cats play more minor rolls in Briar-rose's daily life.
Frostwind || 55 moons || warrior
Former mentor of Briar-rose. Though she once idolized him as a young apprentice, since the loss of Aspenshade she has hardly spared him a second glance. In truth she's hardly spared him a second thought. It's quite difficult to tell if she even remembers he exists at all.
Can have any color pelt or eyes so long as they correlate somehow with his name.
Ratfang || 70 moons || warrior or elder
The second "mate" of Stonefeather, the truth of their relationship is a lot simpler. In all honesty, Ratfang never held any sort of affection for the queen nor did she delude herself into feeling anything for him. Stonefeather had merely been using him as a tool in her attempts at another litter of kits, and he had merely been using her in the way males have an ability to use weaker females. Though they were both aware of the truth of their non-relationship, something about him never quite sat well with Briar-rose, and since the death of Aspenshade she hasn't been afraid to let her disdain for him show. Anytime he crosses her path she makes sure to gift him with a particularly nasty sneer. While Ratfang has never antagonized her to honestly deserve such behavior, he certainly hasn't done anything to improve her opinion of him.
