UPDATES - 3/19/18 Thank you thank you to everyone who took the time to audition for RiverClan deputy. After much deliberation we congratulate Mountainfang (Mink) on getting the position! Remember ThunderClan deputy is still open for auditions, and WindClan deputy will be again in the near future! We still have some medicine cats looking for apprentices, too (if interested PM the medicine cats!).
UPDATES - 3/17/18 A big thank you to everyone who applied to and showed interest in the WindClan deputy position. After discussing the characters and proposed plots we congratulate Jackdawclaw (Yazsh) on getting the position. If you have any questions or would like help with your next audition you can send staff a PM or DM. If you missed out we encourage you to apply for RiverClan deputy before the deadline on March 19th and for ThunderClan deputy. WindClan deputy auditions will open up again in the near future, so keep an eye out!
UPDATES - 03/16/18 RiverClan deputy audition deadline is Monday March 19th! Please get auditions in before then if you're interested in trying out for the position. If you think you may need more time speak to staff asap and the deadline may be extended. Also, we have an activity check running until March 31st, so make sure and post in that ASAP!
UPDATES - 03/14/18 WindClan deputy audition deadline is Saturday March 17th! Please get auditions in before then if you're interested in trying out for the position. If you think you may need more time speak to staff asap and the deadline may be extended.
UPDATES - 03/12/18 Okay hold on to your hats my friends! We now have RiverClan and WindClan deputy open for auditions as well. Link to the high rank board to the left as well as in the news blurb below this one. Same rules apply as with TC deputy -- fill out the audition form and send it to all staff members.
UPDATES - 03/11/18 ThunderClan deputy is now open for auditions. Please be sure to read over the high rank info here. If interested in the position please fill out the audition form and send it to staff as well as Madelin. MCA positions are still open (info below). Keep your eyes open for an activity check in the near future too (and hopefully a new skin if Mink can find time to do a banner!). I should add, while not necessary, including plot ideas (even if they are far out) is very much helpful!
UPDATES - 02/28/18 Rainbow has opened a temporary WindClan MCA position and is asking that interested parties be open to them losing the position within a few months so be sure to have plot ideas as to how they lose the position (death, failing to save a patient, etc) and DM (discord) or PM them your ideas and a bit about the character if they don't already exist on the site. Both RiverClan and SkyClan MCA are now open as well, and those interested should PM/DM Madelin and Trick respectively with your ideas, bio links, or a little about the character's personality/history if they don't they don't yet exist on site.
UPDATES - 02/26/18 A nasty case of greencough has taken SkyClan's deputy, Orcasong. Thankfully, it hasn't shown signs of spreading to the rest of the clan yet. Sequoiastar has chosen Weaselwhisker as her new deputy (which will be officially announced during an upcoming meeting along with a few other exciting things for the clan). Also be on the lookout for more news about the war between ThunderClan and WindClan. Staff will likely start a sign up sheet in the next couple of days to assemble patrols once the ThunderClan meeting has progressed a bit further, so please get your cats' responses into that as well as finishing up your Gathering posts. Because of plot progression and the nature of our sandbox roleplay style, both WC and TC deputy positions may be opening up in the near future. We will open auditions and make additional announcements when that times comes, but go ahead and start thinking about exciting plots for your potential deputies and brush up on the requirements of the position, which are located here!
UPDATES - 01/30/18 A very special announcement! Please join us in congratulating Monument on her engagement!
UPDATES - 01/30/18 The activity check is over and those who did not post or speak to staff have been deleted or moved into our inactive group where they will remain for two weeks before being deleted themselves; bios are never deleted, but are instead moved into our archives. If you have been deleted and wish to rejoin please feel free, and if you find yourself in the inactive group you'll have to PM a staff member with links to your bios and threads to have those moved back. All cats have been aged so please check to see if your characters have moved into a new age bracket, or if they are old enough for a rank change (speak to your leader or update directories/names if that's the case). Be sure to check mentors & apprentices to see if anything has changed, and keep in mind staff is turning those who are not reliable with training threads away from both mentoring and receiving a mentor themselves until consistency can be shown. Our site gathering is still going on (it's just gotten started!) so be sure to check that out.
UPDATES - 01/23/18 Site gathering is up here. Please do not post until the leader of your cats clan has. Leaders have the right to deny a cat access to the gathering and will let those who cannot attend know. The gathering can count as one of your active threads for the activity check.
UPDATES - 01/19/18 An activity check is up here. It will run until Tuesday the 30th of January.
UPDATES - 01/17/18 In light of our near every-clan-wide ban/discouragement on apprentices staff wanted to address a few matters. We all know and can relate to the fact that training threads can get boring quickly, but we want to remind users that they don’t need to be the same old things over and over and over again; training threads can be fun, and the concepts that apply to being a warrior can be presented in fun and new ways. Linked are some threads that staff have themselves participated in that demonstrate a wide variety of different directions to tackle training threads from that range from puzzle solving, critical thinking, assassination attempts, games, and even role playing (patrols and the like can count as training threads too). 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. If you want to request a flash event you can ask a staff member or purchase one in the shop, and if you need help brainstorming ideas ask on our discord—we’re a collection of creative folk and we can certainly help one another out. In keeping training threads interesting and fun we hope to get more people signing up to do mentor.
In the same stroke we staff have also noticed a trend in that some sign their apprentices up for mentors, ask for training threads, but then never respond to them (or take months), and in the end end up purchasing apprentice passes for their apprentices to get their names on time. Going forward staff will request you skip signing up for a mentor (you can npc one instead) and just purchase the apprentice pass to save desperately needed mentors for those who will participate and complete training threads so we aren’t wasting mentors/time.
UPDATES - 01/16/18 Starvation Notices have officially gone out in ThunderClan. To prevent more, and to prevent those who have received them from worsening, get your cats out in patrols and hunting! WindClan, not far behind ThunderClan, is officially on notice of starvation, too. Don't be like ThunderClan and put off hunting threads until it's too late.
UPDATES - 01/10/18Staff has made a slight rule change. You can find this change noted on Rule #17 on the rule sheet, and explained in more depth on the bio guide (specifically the 'history' post, which is linked in Rule #17). Direct any questions to staff. Please make sure to read this update.
UPDATES - 01/09/18 Update concerning clans and clanless cats claiming and challenging for territory. Read about that here. As our largest clan on site we're officially giving ThunderClan a starvation warning. No one is starving quite yet, but they have rumbling bellies and an empty fresh-kill pile more often than not. Get out hunting, and not just on your own territory, ThunderClan, or risk finding starvation and illness notifications in your PMs ;D
UPDATES - 01/02/18 Happy New Year! We have a lot going on on site in terms of clan meeting and exciting, drama-filled going ons. Three of our clans have meetings up, and while two are further along than the third they are still in need of reactions to either help wrap them up, or to help their leader in making her decision. Give them a look: WC, RC, & SC. Once some of these big plot threads wrap up you can expect our next site gathering to get underway.
UPDATES - 12/27/17 There has been a change in DitM's staffing team as Cheshire has had to step away to tackle that thing we call life. You can read about that here. The staff team wishes Cheshire all the best, and a huge thank you for all they've done for the site! In light of how busy we still are we've promoted Yazsh, who has been helping the staff team already with mod stuff and flash event posts, to a full member of the staff team. Be sure to give the ma warm welcome and have patience with them as they learn the ropes! With Cheshire leaving that means Palefeather's and Graystar's plots are at a stand still, but since they are all sorts of tied up into the future of the site staff will be taking on the roles for at least a short while to keep things moving smoothly. Please direct all those character's plot questions to us. Rest assured we'll be working with Cheshire if we have questions, and the sand box environment, to see these through! Have patience with staff as well as we figure out what threads need to be done and get a handle on how to best play these characters. Thank you!
UPDATES - 12/24/17 A few days later than the set date, all accounts in the inactive category have been deleted. If that's you, you're welcome to rejoin at any time; staff can always pull things from the archives for you if you would like to remake characters. Just be aware that you may need to change names or face claims if they have been used in your absence.
UPDATES - 12/21/17 A happy Winter Solstice! Our season on site has been changed to Leaf-Bare. The staff team wishes happy holidays for those celebrating!
UPDATES - 12/06/17 The activity check is over and the site has been aged! Those members who did not respond or check in with staff have been moved to the inactive category and will be deleted on 12/20. If you were moved to inactive, just message a staff member with links to the items you need replaced and the accounts you need moved. For those of you still with us, please check characters' ages and active threads so you can claim any new stats. Please also check mentors & apprentices in case you have gotten a new mentor/become a mentor! Finally, many of us need to update our bios, at the very least to reflect name, rank, and sometimes Clan changes. If I have to call people out by name I will ;).
UPDATES - 11/29/17 We have an activity check going on! Link is here. Members have until December 5th to post. Please speak to staff if you don't think you'll be able to post by then. We are doing it a bit differently this time around so please be sure to read the post completely.
UPDATES - 11/15/17 A big thank you for all those who took the time to audition and show interest in ShadowClan deputy. After discussion between Rainbow & staff we congratulate Gillyflowerthroat (Mink) on getting the position. As promised if you have questions or desire tips in preparation for our next open high rank position you can send staff a PM or DM.
UPDATES - 11/09/17 New skin! Staff is still making tweaks to this top table potion (the link colors and navigation link colors) and to staff/site tables, but otherwise please let staff know if you still see any lingering green colors. A deadline has been set for ShadowClan deputy: Tuesday Nov. 14th. If you'd like to try out please send your auditions in before then, and if you think you will need more time be sure to let staff know.
UPDATES - 11/04/17 Auditions for ShadowClan deputy are now open. Audition form can be found in our high rank info board and all auditions should be sent to the staff team + Rainbow. A deadline will be set at a later date.
UPDATES - 11/02/17 Katzen has stepped back from the site and her role as ShadowClan's leader to focus on her senior year of college. To fill members in on what happened ICly with Vulturestar Rainbow has helpfully written a small AU you can read here.

Avocetfur (named Avocet for her black and white pelt and fur for her zero outstanding qualities) is the daughter of the late Blackfur and Firflower, possibly a sister to some cats, mate of the late Mountainfang, birth mother of Magpiepaw, the late Crowkit and Ravenkit, one time mate of Irisbear, and mother of Garlicnose, Mallow--- and Ivy---.
Avocetfur is the epitome of a spoiled brat. She was spoiled by her parents and later in life, by her mate, so she thinks she's all that (when she's not, as evidenced by her name). She thought it would be a good idea to go for a walk whilst heavily pregnant after becoming listless and lost when Mountainfang died (meaning no one was around to wait on her paw and paw), slipping and injuring herself. She gave birth to her kits outside of camp but fell unconscious after delivering the last. Ravenkit and Crowkit died as a result of her misadventure and Magpiepaw was disfigured.
Upon coming to, she took one look at Magpiepaw (then an unnamed kit) and snarled at her, naming her Crookedkit and thusly abandoning her, hoping she would die. She took no interest in her life since then, and believes Magpiepaw exists to spite her.
her sexuality is open (must be attracted to toms in some way), and I would prefer her to remain a dfab she-cat. The largest facet of her personality is how self entitled she is.
Firenose (named Fire for her ginger pelt and nose for her superior tracking abilities) is the mother of Sunheart (and possibly others), grandmother of Kestrelstream and Barkfern, and adopted grandmother of Magpiepaw. She was once the mate of agender cat Brightfur, who died in a battle with ShadowClan at least twelve moons ago.
There isn't much to say about Firenose - she tends to keep to herself, particularly after Brightfur passed on. Though she is listed as mother of Sunheart, Firenose is a transgender she-cat (therefore dmab and the 'sire' of her litter). Most everything else about her - including her history - is open to interpretation.
Her sexuality is mostly open (must be attracted to non-binary cats in some way), and her gender is transgender female (therefore dmab). Her personality is open.
Sunheart (named Sun for her golden pelt and heart for her fearlessness and loyalty) is the daughter of Firenose and the late Brightfur, possible sibling to some cats, mate of the late Mudbelly, mother of Kestrelstream and Barkfern and adoptive mother of Magpiepaw.
Sunheart is the polar opposite of Badgerfur. Kind and open, she puts the needs of others before hers under all circumstances (except when she was nursing, of course). When Magpiepaw, then Crookedkit, was abandoned by her birth mother, Sunheart did not hesitate to pick the mewling kitten up, adopt her and rename her. Magpiepaw is her own and she would skin anyone who said otherwise. Her mate, Mudbelly, was killed by ShadowClan during a border skirmish so she likely hates them.
Her sexuality and gender are open (must be attracted to toms in some way, must remain dfab), and large facets of her personality are how kind and open she is.
note - her FC has polydactyly. If you want her to have it but don't have the points, I'll gladly help out <3
Barkfern (named Bark for her brown pelt and fern for her resilience in the face of adversity) is the daughter of Sunheart and the late Mudbelly, sister of Kestrelstream and Magpiepaw, and granddaughter of Firenose.
Barkfern is a fiery, snappy young cat who used to be very bossy but has since grown out of it. She is particularly defensive of her two siblings - tearing into those who treat either of them differently (for Magpiepaw, she'd be treated differently because of her paw, and Kestrelstream, for their gender). She recently earned her name after a border skirmish with ShadowClan.
Her sexuality is open, and I would prefer her gender to remain female (dfab, can be changed to bigender, demigirl, or genderfluid). Large facets of her personality is her fire and her snappy, sharp tongue.
Kestrelstream (named Kestrel for their brown pelt and stream for their go with the flow, graceful attitude) is the child of Sunheart and the late Mudbelly, sibling of Barkfern and Magpiepaw, and grandchild of Firenose.
The quieter sibling of the three, Kestrelstream has always been a go-with-the-flow kind of cat. They never like to lead, and prefer following - but they know when to speak out against injustices or things they find unfair. They became a warrior shortly prior to Barkfern, after they saved a wandering kit from being snatched up by, ironically, a kestrel.
Their sexuality is open, and they must remain agender and dmab. Large facets of their personality are their quiet nature, and go-with-the-flow attitude.
Rooknose (named Rook for his black coat and nose for his exceptional tracking abilities) is the son of the late Condorclaw and the late Maplecloud, grandson of Blackheart and the late Firedance, sort of mate of the late Bluefur and even less sort of mate to Perchclaw, and possible father to Tansypaw, Lionpaw, Thistlepaw, Beetlepaw, Wildpaw and the late Ivykit.
Besides courting Bluefur for a time and fathering some of his kits, Rooknose is super open. He's a bit younger than Bluefur is and they wouldn't have trained together but would have become friends later on. He may have known Bluefur when he was still referred to as female.
His gender and sexuality are kinda open (must remain dmab, must be attracted to toms in some way) and whether he likes it or not Bluefur's gonna make him and Perchflame get along.
Thistle--- (named Thistle for her blue fur and --- for whatever you want) is the daughter of the late Bluefur and either Rooknose or the late Perchclaw. She is the sister of Beetlepaw, Marigoldflame, Gracklepaw, Tansypaw and the late Ivykit.
Thistle--- has recently become a warrior! Her name is up to you.
Tansy--- (named Tansy for his blonde fur colour and --- for whatever you want) is the son of the late Bluefur and either Rooknose or the late Perchclaw. He is the brother of Thistlepaw, Marigoldflame, Beetlepaw, Gracklepaw and the late Ivykit.
Tansy--- has recently become a warrior! His name is up to you.
Beetle--- (named Beetle for her black fur and --- for whatever you want) is the daughter of the late Bluefur and either Rooknose or the late Perchclaw. She is the sister of Thistlepaw, Marigoldflame, Gracklepaw, Tansypaw and the late Ivykit.
Beetle--- has recently become a warrior! Her name is up to you.
Newtnose (named Newt for her golden spotted pelt and nose for her superior tracking abilities) is the mate of the late Bramblebee, mother of the lateLeopardfang and the presumed dead Wolfstep, and grandmother of Wolfpaw, Jaguarpaw and Peregrinepaw.
Newtnose is a loyal RiverClan warrior who has known loss in her life. She most likely lost her parents rather younger (apprentice or young warrior aged) and would later lose her beloved Bramblebee and her daughter, Wolfstep. She has since become bitter about many things, including the war with ShadowClan, which she believes futile.
Her sexuality and gender are open (must be attracted to toms in some form, must remain dfab), as is her personality. In Leopardfang's bio I have stated that her parents were not "great", so please reflect that in the bio (why they aren't great can be your choice, either abusive, neglectful or some other third thing.)
Coalfeather (named Coal for his grey coat and feather for his feathery coat) is the mate of Jaypetal, and father of Asterheart, Wisteriablaze, Littlefoot, Mudwhisker and Lilacnose.
He met the younger Jaypetal at a Gathering, and despite their clans' differences they really hit it off and began meeting in secret in the contested territory. Coalfeather was ecstatic when Jaypetal told him she was pregnant, and secretly hoped to get one of the kits. She told him to go to their spot every day, and that she would be there ready to give birth. He attended her birth alone, and she gave him the one kit that didn't look like the rest - a kit he took home. Though the leadership questioned where he found the kit (his story is he found her abandoned and alone, had waited for the mother for some hours but she hadn't returned and he didn't want to leave a newborn alone), she was accepted into the clan and named Asterkit. Whether or not he took an active part in her raising is up to you, though that may ring alarm bells for others.
He must remain dmab and be attracted to she-cats in some form. He may have a mate and another family. His gender and personality are open.
Note: he has green (#10ca44) eyes. I can edit pictures for you.
Asterheart (named Aster for her grey and white pelt and heart for her unwavering loyalty to RiverClan) is the daughter of Coalfeather and Jaypetal, and sister of Littlefoot, Lilacnose, Mudwhisker and Wisteriablaze (it is unlikely she knows this, and was likely raised among another family).
She was born in the contested territory and was the sole kit taken to RiverClan by Coalfeather. She likely is unaware that he is her father, though she may have her suspicions if she's been told the story of where she was found. How she reacts to likely eventually finding out about her true heritage is up to you - including if she chooses to believe it. She could have been raised to believe her adopted family is her real one.
Jaguarpaw (named Jaguar for his golden spotted pelt and paw for his station within the clan) is the son of Muskegstar and the late Leopardfang, brother of Badgerpaw and Peregrinepaw, maternal grandson of Newtnose, paternal grandson of Swampfire, half-brother of Bloompaw, Pikepaw, Meadowpaw and Berrypaw, nephew of Mirefox and cousin of Asterfang and Waxwing.
Jaguarpaw has the luxury of being the son of the former leader - and all the baggage that goes with it. He was favoured by his father (only slightly) over his siblings, and had a run in with a bass when he was a kit. His father took him out to the quarry and the bass nearly ate him, but Muskegstar rescued him. When he was made an apprentice, Muskegstar named himself as Jaguarpaw's mentor. Now that he's gone, he has someone else - and he might feel incredibly bitter about everything that happened.
Smokefang (named Smoke for his pelt colour and fang for his overgrown teeth and fighting skills) is the brother and littermate of the late Granitestar and Tigerfur, son of the late Wolfwhisker and the late Sableheart, elder brother of Swampclaw and Bognose, and uncle of Chertpaw, Canyonpaw and the late Agatekit.
Beyond being bullied by Granitestar when they were kits and eventually growing his super teeth and being named a warrior at the normal twelve moons, Smokefang is very open. Might have a mate, kits, whatever.
His sexuality and gender is open, as his personality.
This is my only adopt where the picture is set. No replacements. Fight me on this.
Tigerfur (named Tiger for his striped pelt and fur for being average) is the brother and littermate of the late Granitestar and Smokefang, son of the late Wolfwhisker and the late Sableheart, elder brother of Swampclaw and Bognose and and uncle of Chertpaw, Canyonpaw, and the late Agatekit.
Beyond being bullied by Granitestar when they were kits and being named a warrior at the normal twelve moons, Tigerfur is very open. Might have a mate, kits, whatever.
His sexuality and gender are open. A large facet of his personality is his quiet nature.
Swampclaw (named Swamp for their pelt colour and claw for their fighting skills) is the sibling and littermate of Bognose, agender child of the late Wolfwhisker and the late Sableheart, younger sibling of the late Granitestar, Tigerfur and Smokefang, and maternal pibling of Chertpaw, Canyonpaw and the late Agatekit.
Beyond being born twenty moons after Granitestar and co, and being dfab agender, Swampclaw is incredibly open. Only their gender must remain. You can change their pronouns.
Bognose (named Bog for her pelt colour and nose for her tracking skills) is the sister and littermate of Swampclaw, daughter of the late Wolfwhisker and the late Sableheart, younger sister of the late Granitestar, Tigerfur and Smokefang. and aunt of Chertpaw, Canyonpaw and the late Agatekit.
Beyond being born twenty moons after Granitestar, she's very open. Her gender and sexuality are subject to change. She may have had a mate and kits.
Jaypetal (named Jay for her brown pelt and petal for her soft demeanour) is the mother of Wisteriablaze, Littlefoot, Mudwhisker, Fawnfire and Asterheart, mate of Coalfeather, and ex-mate of Brownfur.
When she was young she met the RiverClan warrior Coalfeather at a gathering. They hit it off despite their clans differences and sought each other out in the contested territory. They began a forbidden romance and had kits - one of which went with Coalfeather to RiverClan. During this time, she also led along Brownfur, making him her mate when she became pregnant. She has a reputation as being a bit of a hussy inside ShadowClan, at least in Wisteriablaze's eyes. She has since broken up with Brownfur after Wisteriablaze found out she was still seeing Coalfeather.
Her gender must remain she-cat and her sexuality is likely bi, pan or poly. Her personality is mostly open, besides being a bit saucy. She must have a brown parent and a buff parent.
Brownfur (named Brown for his brown fur and fur as he had no outstanding qualities) is the ex-mate of Jaypetal and the step father of Wisteriablaze, Mudwhisker, Littlefoot and Fawnfire (though he believes he is their real father).
Led along by Jaypetal, Brownfur became her mate after she became pregnant. As they had mated, he looked after her and noticed she had left camp whilst heavily pregnant. When he found her, she was with four kits, saying a fifth had died and she had already buried it (unbeknownst to him, the fifth kit went with her true father to RiverClan). He raised the litter believing they were his, not really caring none looked like him. As yet, he doesn't know that Jaypetal lied to him, nor the kits he cares about not being his. How he reacts and finds out is up to you. Jaypetal broke up with him not long after Wisteriablaze found out she was still seeing Coalfeather.
He must remain dmab, but gender, sexuality and personality are open.
Littlefoot (named Little for his size and foot for how surprisingly swift he is) is the son of Jaypetal and Coalfeather, brother of Asterheart, Wisteriablaze, Mudwhisker and Fawnfire, and step son of Brownfur (his true heritage is unknown to him).
Born with dwarfism, Littlefoot has always been small. He was closest to Wisteriablaze growing up, as Wisterblaze always made sure to include him in games and didn't bully him for his size. He doesn't yet know of his true heritage, and how he finds out and reacts is up to you.
His sexuality, gender and personality are open.
Mudwhisker (named Mud for his brown pelt and whisker for his tracking skills) is the son of Jaypetal and Coalfeather, brother of Asterheart, Wisteriablaze, Littlefoot and Fawnfire, and step son of Brownfur (his true heritage is unknown to him).
Didn't write much about him. His sexuality, gender and personality are all open.
Hawthornpaw (named Hawthorn for her pale coat and paw for her rank in the clan) is the daughter of the late Chantilly and Wisteriablaze, biological daughter of the late Sunstorm (unknown), sister of Cuckoopaw and Coralpaw, niece of the late Vulturestar, Littlefoot, Mudwhisker, Asterheart and Larkspur, granddaughter of Brownfur, Jaypetal and Coalfeather, and cousin of Lightningmouse, Heatherface and Newtfur.
She's an open slate - as she was born on site if you want to change her looks. Her sexuality, gender and personality are open.
Frostyfeather (named Frosty for her white coat and feather for her airy personality) is the daughter of Nick and Quinn, and sister of Doll.
Frostyfeather was born in a twoleg home after Quinn was taken somewhere safe and when she was weaned and old enough, because of her outgoing nature she was taken by Nick to the barn, which was her father's ancestral home. Doll stayed with Quinn, and the sisters only saw each other every few moons. Frostyfeather had a run-in with Duskstar when she was very young, and was almost taken to WindClan - had it not been for her father whisking her away with a "Thanks but no thanks." It was Frostyfeather who convinced Nick to join SkyClan with her, knowing her mother would join them.
Her gender, personality and sexuality are open.
TAKEN BY TRICK
Nick (no real reason for name) is the father of Frosty and Doll, mate of Quinn and descendant of a SkyClan cat named Frostfall.
Nick's a blank slate. He's lived in the barn on TC/WC territory his whole life, straying only to follow his mate Quinn when the human studying him took her to safety when they realised she was declawed. When his kits were weaned, he and Quinn agreed to keep one each - thus Nick took Frosty back with him, whilst Doll stayed with Quinn. They didn't visit each other often but remained loyal to each other.
His gender, personality and sexuality are open. He has joined SkyClan with Frostyfeather and Quinn, and decided to keep the name Nick.
Lionwhisker (named Lion for his colour and size, whisker for his sensitive tracking abilities and personality) is the paternal grandfather of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw, Poppyfoot and Primroseblossom, the father of Badgerfang, Spidernose, Cardinalflight and Sablebelly, and great-grandfather of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known). He had a mate named Coalfeather but she died of an infection brought on by the birth of their children.
Rather than let a queen take over full time care of his children, Lionwhisker asked permission to move into the nursery himself whilst his children were still there. This wish was granted and Lionwhisker became a temporary queen, spending all of his time with his growing youngsters and lavishing them with the love and care he knew Coalfeather would have wanted from him.
The time between his children leaving the nursery and to the current are open to you. He most likely did not take another mate as Coalfeather, in his eyes, was his soulmate. He took part in the lives of his grandkits when they were in the nursery, almost as much as he had done with his own kits (though bar the actually moving in to be a full time dad). He likely trained many apprentices during this time and is either a senior warrior or an elder.
His sexuality and gender are open (he must remain dmab), and as for his personality I would like one large facet to be empathetic and sensitive, as he was named for those qualities.
Spidernose (named Spider for her small size at birth and her pelt colour, and nose for her superior tracking ability) is the daughter of Lionwhisker and the late Coalfeather, the sister of Badgerfang, Cardinalflight and Sablebelly, the paternal aunt of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw, Poppyfoot and Primroseblossom, and great-aunt of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known).
Raised by her father after her mother's death, much of Spidernose's life is open to interpretation. Whether or not she kept close ties with her immediate family is up to you, though Spidernose is likely to have remained in the good graces of the family. She may have had a family of her own and has most likely taken on an apprentice or two.
Her sexuality and gender are open (you may change her from dfab to dmab if you so wish), as is her personality.
Cardinalflight (named Cardinal for her red pelt and flight for her speed and rather muddled, flighty personality) is the daughter of Lionwhisker and the late Coalfeather, sister of Badgerfang, Spidernose and Sablebelly, the paternal aunt of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw, Poppyfoot and Primroseblossom, and great-aunt of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known).
Raised by her father after her mother's death, much of Cardinalflight's life is open to interpretation. Whether or not she kept close ties with her immediate family is up to you, though Cardinalflight is unlikely to have remained in the good graces of the family due to her scattered personality. She is unlikely to have had a family of her own (though may have had a mate) and has probably only trained one apprentice.
Her sexuality and gender are open (you may change her from dfab to dmab if you so wish), and as for her personality i would scatter brained and flighty to be large facets of her personality.
Sablebelly (named Sable for his black pelt and belly for his friendly and flirty disposition) is the son of Lionwhisker and the late Coalfeather, brother of Badgerfang, Spidernose and Cardinalflight, the paternal uncle of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw, Poppyfoot and Primroseblossom, and great-uncle of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known).
Raised by his father after his mother's death, much of Sablebelly's life is open to interpretation. Whether or not he kept close ties with his immediate family is up to you, though Sablebelly is likely to have remained in the good graces of the family. He is unlikely to have had a family of his own yet but may have had a string of affairs, and has probably trained a few apprentices.
His sexuality and gender are open (you may change him from dmab to dfab if you so wish), and as for her personality i would overtly friendly and flirty to be large facets of his personality.
Badgerfang (named Badger for his black pelt and fang for his fighting skills) is the son of Lionwhisker and the late Coalfeather, brother of Cardinalflight, Spidernose and Cardinalflight, mate of Mallowface, father of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw, Poppyfoot and Primroseblossom, and grandfather of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known).
Raised by his father after his mother's death, some of his earliest memories are of Mallowface coming to the nursery to play with the kits, and he has had a crush on her ever since. He thought, for most of their relationship, that he only cared for her as a friend, but after some gently prodding by Spidernose he realised he loved her. They became mates but initially, Mallowface was unwilling to carry kits as she wished to be a warrior for some more time beforehand. He was in his late forties when she agreed, and he became a father to a litter of four. He was very active in their upbringing and remains so now.
His sexuality and gender are mostly open (must be attracted to she-cats in some way, and must remain dmab), and one large facet of his personality is his playfulness and paternal instincts.
MOST WANTED [100pt bribe]
Mallowface (named Mallow for her pale pelt at birth and face for her good looks) is the mate of Badgerfang, mother of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw, Poppyfoot and Primroseblossom, and grandmother of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known).
Mallowface was raised by her parents in ThunderClan, eleven moons older than Badgerfang and his siblings. Mallowface visited the nursery often, and Badgerfang had a crush on her ever since he was small. She believed he didn't like her any more than a friend when she held deeper feelings for him, but did not confess them until he told her that he loved her. Badgerfang wanted a family but Mallowface put it off initially - wanting to fulfil more duties as a warrior before bringing life to the world. She was in her late fiftees when she agreed, and gave birth to a litter of four. Since they have moved into the apprentice den, she went back to her warrior duties running.
Her sexuality and gender are mostly open (must be attracted to toms in some way, and must remain dfab), and her personality is open.
Poppyfoot (named Poppy for his ginger pelt and foot for his speed) is the son of Badgerfang and Mallowface, brother of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw and Primroseblossom, and uncle of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known).
Poppyfoot is the only son of Badgerfang and Mallowface and the only one to not really look like either of them, taking after his grandfather instead. He is the most serious of the four siblings and has tried to distance himself from his sisters since they became apprentices.
His sexuality and gender are open (he must remain dmab), and one large facet of his personality is his seriousness and maturity, and his warrior name is up to you
TAKEN BY SWIFTY
Primroseblossom (named Primrose for her pale pelt at birth and blossom for her softness and maternal nature) is the daughter of Badgerfang and Mallowface, sister of Daisygrace, the late Heatherpaw and Poppyfoot, and aunt of Murkpaw and Vervainpaw (latter of WC, not known).
Primroseblossom is one of three daughters of Badgerfang and Mallowface. She is the quietest of the four siblings and a bit of a pushover, though her siblings never took advantage of this. She has tried to stick close to her siblings since they left the nursery.
Her sexuality and gender are open (you may change her from dfab to dmab if you wish), and one large facet of her personality is how shy and quiet she is.
Roachthroat is the son of the late Acornstar and Blackwolf, brother of Spiderhawk, the late Butterflypaw, the late Mothpaw, the late Beetleclaw, the late Antnose and the late Flykit.
One of only two surviving kits of Acornstar and Blackwolf's (possibly last) litter, Roachthroat is Spiderhawk's brother. He started life as one of seven, and one of three sickly kittens. He and Spiderkit survived, and Roachthroat likes to joke that he is as unkillable as the thing he's named for. Unlike his sister, he isn't quite as harsh on judging Kestrelstar - he knows she's got big pawprints to fill, and thinks Spiderhawk is being far too harsh on her.
His sexuality and gender are open (he must remain dmab), and his personality is resilient and forgiving (and other stuff lol). note: you will need a high rank relation item for roach
Redstorm (named red for her red pelt and storm for her personality) is the mother of Tinybear, Orcaface and Spottedfur, ex-mate of Darkthorn, mate of Thistlenose and technical stepmother of Streamfur, Moleclaw and Sedgeleap.
A full-blooded warrior of WindClan, Redstorm had been Darkthorn's mate for at least 30 moons by the time she finally brought up having a family to him after Wheatstem told her she was pregnant. Darkthorn didn't want a family, lashing out at her and telling her he had been cheating on her practically their entire mateship. She broke up with Darkthorn when she was 55 moons, and got together with her childhood friend, Thistlenose.
She had her three kits and raised them with Thistlenose, telling them of their true parentage but enough that the kits knew Darkthorn wasn't a nice cat. When Darkthorn said that Tinykit should have been left out for the crows, Redstorm made sure Darkthorn knew he wasn't allowed to come near their children again - and was enraged when Darkthorn later invalidated Spottedfur's gender, saying that her son would "always be a she-cat".
Since leaving the nursery, her history is fairly open. It's unlikely she had another litter - one was enough for her. She must remain dfab and female identifying, and bisexual or pansexual. NOTE she has blue eyes, and I'm willing to edit all of Irori's CC pictures to reflect that if you want.
Thistlenose (named thistle for her pelt and nose for her intuition and tracking skills) is the mate of Redstorm and stepmother of Tinybear, Orcaface and Spottedfur.
Thistlenose was Redstorm's friend from childhood and always had a crush on her, but she knew Redstorm was in love with Darkthorn, and she had a male/dmab mate (if male, she didn't realise she was a lesbian and tried to carry on the legacy of her family). Her mate eventually abandoned her after many failed attempts at having kits, as Thistlenose is infertile (reasons why can be up to you, for example she may be infertile genetically, or have been caught, neutered and released). It wasn't until Darkthorn broke Redstorm's heart and Redstorm sought solace from her did they finally become mates. She raised Redstorm's kits like they were her own.
She must remain dfab and female identifying, and she's a lesbian.
Orcaface (named orca for her black and white pelt and face for how pretty she is) is the daughter of Redstorm and Darkthorn, stepdaughter of Thistlenose, sister of Tinybear and Spottedfur, and half-sister of Streamfur, Moleclaw and Sedgeleap.
Aside from what's in Tinybear's bio (birth, apprenticeship, warrior ceremony, family stuff), Orcaface is pretty open! Given her age, she has probably had a family of her own by now. Her gender and sexuality are totally up to you. NOTE she has blue eyes, and I can edit all of Bilbo's pictures to reflect that if you want.
Spottedfur (named spotted for his pelt and fur for... his pelt) is the son of Redstorm and Darkthorn, stepson of Thistlenose, brother of Tinybear and Orcaface, and half-brother of Streamfur, Moleclaw and Sedgeleap.
Besides what's in Tinybear's bio (birth, apprenticeship, warrior ceremony, coming out, Darkthorn being a dick about his gender), Spottedfur is pretty open! Given his age, he has probably had a family of his own by now. He must remain a transgender tom (dfab), but his sexuality is open.
Smallbreeze (named small for her tiny size and breeze for her speed) is the daughter of Glacierthorn and Brown-nose, younger sister of Cranefrost, Batface and Cougarfang, and mother of Streamfur, Moleclaw and Sedgeleap.
Smallbreeze was born only a few days after Tinybear was, and was the only kit of her litter. Always quite timid and quiet, when she was made an apprentice and assigned Darkthorn as a mentor, things started to get worse for her. Darkthorn didn't hold she-cats very high, and began abusing her very early on. The abuse turned sexual when Smallpaw entered her ninth moon, and she was so afraid of him that she told no one.
She found out she was pregnant just before her warrior ceremony and stole herbs from Wheatstem to induce an abortion. It was only because Tinypaw followed her out of camp did she survive the bleeding that happened afterwards. For the longest time afterwards, Tinybear never left Smallbreeze alone.
Unfortunately, Tinybear couldn't be ever vigilant. Darkthorn caught Smallbreeze outside of camp alone, and raped her. He had somehow found out about the litter she had aborted and decided that she had killed his sons. She ended up having a panic attack in Alligatorjaw's den when Tinybear returned to camp, and it took hours of coaxing to get the hiccuping warrior to tell Tinybear what had happened.
Tinybear left camp and Smallbreeze had no idea what happened next. All she knew that the next day, Darkthorn's corpse had been found ravaged by dogs and caught in a loop snare. She likely has an idea what happened - she saw the way Tinybear and Cranefrost spoke when Tinybear returned, and how they both looked at her.
She had her kits two moons later - Streamkit, Molekit and Sedgekit. She had been warned that she would not be allowed herbs to induce an abortion this time, as it could very well kill her, so she carried the kits to term. When they were born, Molekit bore a striking resemblance to her father, and Smallbreeze had trouble loving her like she did Streamkit and Sedgekit. Eventually, when the kittens personality formed, Molekit took more after Smallbreeze than she ever could have hoped, and she loved all the kittens in turn.
Since then, Smallbreeze has been building up her confidence and working with Streamfur to help her properly learn to talk (as Streamfur is deaf, but not totally), and it is unlikely that she has gone back to her warrior duties proper.
Smallbreeze must remain dfab and female identifying, but her sexuality is up to you. She likely has PTSD and anxiety issues thanks to what happened to her. Tinybear also has a big crush on her but that doesn't have to come to anything if you don't want it to. NOTE she has yellow eyes, and I can edit all of Bianca's pictures to reflect that if you want.
Sedgeleap (named sedge for his black and white pelt and leap for his uncanny ability to snatch birds and bats out of the sky) is the son of Smallbreeze and the late Darkthorn, brother of Streamfur and Moleclaw, nephew of Cougarfang and Batface, cousin of Gullheart, Owlscreech, Heronstorm, Stormhawk, Rabbitfur and Ash---, and half brother of Tinybear, Orcaface and Spottedfur.
Besides being the product of a non-consensual relationship between Smallbreeze and her mentor Darkthorn, Sedgeleap is open and free. His sexuality and gender are totally open. NOTE he has blue-green eyes, and I can edit all of Oskar's pictures to reflect that if you want.
Moleclaw (named mole for her black pelt and claw for her fighting ability) is the daughter of Smallbreeze and the late Darkthorn, sister of Streamfur and Sedgeleap, niece of Cougarfang and Batface, cousin of Gullheart, Owlscreech, Heronstorm, Stormhawk, Rabbitfur and Ash---, and half sister of Tinybear, Orcaface and Spottedfur.
Besides being the product of a non-consensual relationship between Smallbreeze and her mentor Darkthorn, Moleclaw is open and free. Her sexuality and gender are totally open.
Streamfur (named stream for her white pelt and fur as she had no outstanding qualities) is the daughter of Smallbreeze and the late Darkthorn, sister of Sedgeleap and Moleclaw, niece of Cougarfang and Batface, cousin of Gullheart, Owlscreech, Heronstorm, Stormhawk, Rabbitfur and Ash---, and half sister of Tinybear, Orcaface and Spottedfur.
Besides being the product of a non-consensual relationship between Smallbreeze and her mentor Darkthorn, Streamfur is a young elder due to her deafness. Though not totally deaf, she was made an elder as she still wasn't 100% on talking normally. Smallbreeze is still teaching her, but chances of her becoming anything other than a perma-queen are slim to none. Her sexuality and gender are totally open. NOTE she has blue eyes, and I can edit all of Noé's pictures to reflect that.
Auburnpetal (named Auburn for her red pelt and petal for her softness and maternal instict) is the mate of Ironclaw, mother of Violetwhisker, adoptive mother of Hawkstep and Quailfoot, and daughter of an unknown WindClan warrior.
Auburnpetal's mother likely met her father at the WindClan border. It was probably a short affair that led to her birth, and her mother made no active attempts to join WindClan as she was a city cat at heart. She was born as Braith (vibrant in Welsh) and spent her formative moons as an alleycat, living off of scraps and mice and trying to avoid the meaner shits where she could.
She first met Ironclaw, then James, through a window when she was seven moons, and instead of talking to him, she was spooked by him in the window and ran away. It was another three moons before they spoke for the first time through a wire mesh of James's cat pen, talking about stuff until James brought up WindClan. She recalled what her mother had told her and they both wished they could go to WindClan.
When Braith was fifteen moons, She arrived at James's home to find him missing after a break in, and she followed his scent trail to find him. They began travelling together in an effort to return to WindClan and became embroiled in a gang of alleycats - where they were renamed Ember and Iron. Iron protected Ember from the roving, handsy tom-cats. They remain in the gang for five moons until they decide they want to leave.
Iron puts down the leader, Grunt, and he lets them leave after Iron spares his life. When Ember is twenty-six moons, the pair bed down in an abandoned shack and had several kittens, who were killed and eaten by rats less than half a moon later. After the death of her kits, Iron and Ember begin moving again, and when she is thirty moons old, she is pregnant again. Iron finds WindClan the day she gives birth to one kit - and initially is very possessive over Violet, afraid that WindClan will steal her away. Iron assures her that they won't, so she joins WindClan and is renamed Auburnpetal.
She doesn't enjoy Ironclaw's possessive mother taking an obsessive amount of interest, and complained to the leader in order to stop her from trying to manipulate Violetkit. Of course, she didn't count on Dovefeather getting pregnant - but it was for nought. Ironclaw and Violetkit actively worked to free the two young she-kits from their mother, and eventually, Dovefeather abandoned Hawk-kit and Quailkit and Auburnpetal officially adopted them.
From there, she's open! She, of course, underwent some warrior training after the kits became apprentices. She is probably struggling to adjust to the new leadership and the fact that several non-pure cats have been murdered.
Her gender must stay female, but her personality and sexuality are open! Her father is never named as I wanted to leave it open to the adopter who her father was, but her mother always insisted he was from WindClan.
Dovefeather (named Dove for her white pelt and feather for her soft pelt) is the mother of Ironclaw, the late Breezepaw, Quailfoot and Hawkstep, mate of the late Stormfur, and grandmother of Violetwhisker.
Simply put, Dovefeather isn't really nice. She believes kits should be seen and not heard, and is highly manipulative and believes it's her way or the highway. It's because of her that one of her sons is dead and the other spent his formative seasons outside of WindClan. She was only devastated by her sons disappearing because her perfect plan was shattered and broken.
When Ironclaw came home, she immediately tried to control his life again, only for him to basically tell her to get out of his life once and for all. When she realised that Ironclaw was a lost cause, she moved on to her granddaughter, then Violetkit. Auburnpetal and Ironclaw raised their concerns about her being around the nursery with the leader, and she was thusly barred - so she actively attempted to get pregnant. She never named the father of her second litter, and had two daughters - Hawk-kit and Quailkit. When it became very obvious her perfect family wasn't happening (she taught the same "be seen and not heard" mentality to Hawk and Quail until Ironclaw ordered Violetkit to teach them to be unapologetically loud), she spitefully abandoned Hawk and Quail to try and get back at her son, only for him and Auburnpetal to officially adopt Hawk-kit and Quailkit.
Her gender and sexuality are open, but her personality is highly manipulative and not nice. Think Dolores Umbridge.
Queenie (no reason for name) is the sister of Quinn, Quaid, Quentin and Quillan, daughter of the late Eva, and aunt of Frostyfeather and Doll.
Queenie was born alongside one sister and three brothers and had a fairly ok kithood until her mother died. The twoleg decided to dump her and her siblings in a box labelled "free kittens", where she and Quinn were picked up and taken to a home. When she was five moons, Queenie was injured by the twoleg kit in the house and was dumped instead of being taken to a vet. What happens from there is up to you! It's possible she has heard of SkyClan and maybe wants to join them - and little does she know that her sister is there along with her brother-in-law and her niece.
Her gender, personality and sexuality are open.
Doll (no reason for name) is the sister of Frostyfeather, daughter of Nick and Quinn, and descendant of the SkyClan cat named Frostfall.
Doll's a sweet and slightly spoiled kittypet. She was born in a twoleg home and raised with her sister, Frosty, until the two of them were weaned. Doll stayed behind with Quinn whilst Frosty went with Nick. They've only seen each other once or twice since. She lived alone with her twoleg owner after Quinn moved back to the barn, and she knows her family joined SkyClan. Whether or not she wants to join too is up to you
Cosmos (named for the black cosmos flower) is the adopted daughter of Hibiscus, sister of Tadpole, daughter of the late Emily and the late Stark, and niece of Paladin.
Cosmos met Hibiscus shortly after she was weaned, when Emily stumbled into Hibiscus' current hide-out gravely injured. Although Hibiscus couldn't save Emily, she begged them to look after her kits - which he did. When Cosmos and Tadpole were four moons old, their uncle, Paladin, came back to finish the job he had started - it was Paladin who had murdered his brother Stark and gravely wounded Emily out of jealousy. While Paladin and Hibiscus fought, Cosmos and Tadpole ran off to find help - in the forms of Big Bear and her grown up kits, Marvel and Sparkler. Hibiscus, Cosmos and Tadpole travelled with the three cats until Hibiscus entered and subsequently left a relationship with Marvel. Currently, Hibiscus is aiming to join SkyClan and plans to bring Cosmos with him - but as she's an adult, whether or not she joins him is up to you.
Her gender, sexuality and personality are open.
Tadpole (named for tadpoles) is the adopted son of Hibiscus, brother of Cosmos, son of the late Emily and the late Stark, and nephew of Paladin.
Tadpole met Hibiscus shortly after he was weaned, when Emily stumbled into Hibiscus' current hide-out gravely injured. Although Hibiscus couldn't save Emily, she begged them to look after her kits - which he did. When Cosmos and Tadpole were four moons old, their uncle, Paladin, came back to finish the job he had started - it was Paladin who had murdered his brother Stark and gravely wounded Emily out of jealousy. While Paladin and Hibiscus fought, Cosmos and Tadpole ran off to find help - in the forms of Big Bear and her grown up kits, Marvel and Sparkler. Hibiscus, Cosmos and Tadpole travelled with the three cats until Hibiscus entered and subsequently left a relationship with Marvel. Currently, Hibiscus is aiming to join SkyClan and plans to bring Tadpole with him - but as he's an adult, whether or not he joins him is up to you.
