Name- if you could just bother to look up..... Gender- tom. Family- none. Mate- good luck with that. Appearance- Dark grey pelt, tall and sleek but is still very strong. Light blue eyes and black claws that can tear a cat to shreds. Personality- He is very lighthearted and loves to joke around. However if you were to ever get on his bad side, run for it. History- no need to be nosy.
Male. 20 moons. Would like to be dep. Needs mate and really wants one. Moves at very fast speeds. Is a great fighter/hunter
