Overview

The first major battle in the Western theatre of the American Civil War, Shiloh came as a horrifying shock to both the American public and those in arms. For the first time they had some idea of the terrible price that would be paid for the preservation of the Union. On 6 April 1862 General Albert Sidney Johnston caught Grant and Sherman by surprise and very nearly drove them into the River Tennessee, but was mortally wounded in the process. Somehow Grant and Sherman hung on and the next day managed to drive back the hordes of grey-clad rebels.

Dusklock<br>I have very little idea how to describe Dusklock's fur because I never had to post that many bios for her in the long time she's existed... But basically, she has this sort of brown color like coffee with a lot of creamer in it, that fades into a coffee without creamer sort of color around just above her legs, like she was swimming in soda or something. I guess. And hazel eyes. Almost forgot that.<br>Personality: A tiny bit nice and responsible and stuff, her personality is the only remnant of her past as good.<br>History: She was the deputy of ViridianClan, at least until it was destroyed by the Gorg, giant aliens who seem to enjoy killing cats.[Enter rp. That was backstory.] She found SwiftClan and quickly became respected, and the co-leader next to Cloudstar. Then when SwiftClan's number began to dwindle, Cloudstar dissapeared. By then there were too few cats to care that technically she was now leader. Then a post in the first result appered advertising that all the cats of SwiftClan should leave and join another! Furious, Dusklock went to that Clan and started smashing the heck outta sh<_>it. Then she went back and posted a lot of ads, and SwiftClan was strong once more. The cats demanded that she become their leader, but she insited that they wait until Cloudstar returned. A cat said they knew Cloudstar in another rp, and they summoned her. Cloudstar said she had left because she assumed that SwiftClan was already dead, and reluctantly she took back her position. It was all fine and dandy until SwiftClan died again a short time after. Dusklock temporarily lost her sanity and started crying out to nothing at all, asking what she had done for the Clan to just die like that. She kinda almost joined the rival Clan from earlier but eventually ended up in AshClan, where she developed a crush on Griffinwing, but she ended up giving up on it all and left to the mountains where she found a bunch of hairless elderly toms living in solitude, worshipping something other than StarClan. She stayed there with them were she was slowly rotted away by her troubles. One of the monks gave her advice that she took the wrong way, and swifty she left for BloodClan, then to here once she realized how much BloodClan su<_>cked.<br>Mate: never had one. This is one reason she corrupted. Crush: not yet, and of course no kits. Go away.<br>Other: for some reason, she doesn't cast a shadow. Feel free to ask why, but I'm not putting it here.<p>Paradox<br>Fluffy white fur, more so than a kit or kittypet's, and green eyes.<br>A sort of catlike personality. Can't describe in another way. But she also has a sort of responsible demeanor, like Dusklock.<br>History: not notable.<br>Also mateless and kitless.<br>Family: Mr. Cuddlypants (father), Nettlewing (mother), Enigma (brother), Glitch (yes, the famous one, brother)<br>Other: nnope.

White she-cat w/ black paws, ears, and tail tip. Green eyes. Has very little story, not enough to even tell. Quiet, but ferocious once riled up.
