A tall slender black she-cat pads into the camp. She narrows her leaf-green eyes and meows, "May i join this clan?" Her voice is quiet, but clearly authoritive. "I am known as Nightbeeze."

Izla Moon stood high on a cliff, her fur sparkling in the moonlight and flying in the wind. Her eyes set high on the sky, her gaze steady and serious. Izla Moon is here.....

A medium built tom-cat with gray fur and brown paws and spots padded in and addressed Imperator Heineken. "May I join the ranks of this Clan" he asked in a gruff voice.

A deep russet she cat padded in. She held her head in a confidant manner. Her gold and green eyes peirced into each cat's eyes as she past them as if daring them to challenge her. "May I join?" She asked.

A dainty gray Siamese padded in. She was small, but full adult at 18 moons old. The only thing that held a hint to the wiseness of her years was cold fire that glinted in her cerulean orbs. "Hello?" She purred, sounding fairly calm - but slightly unsure of herself.
