||Looks:|| she is a pitch black she cat, her eyes are bright green almost like an apple. Her hind quarters are covered in silvery thin scars, from years of self harm. ||Mate/ kits:|| none. And most likely not gonna have one. ||personality:|| she is extremely skittish and shy. But if you become close to her, she will be nice. She can be sweet at times, but most of the time she just stays by herself. ||life story:|| she was abondoned by her mother as a kit. In which completly ruined her life, her first mate was taken from her by a plague. Because of never fitting in, in any clan, she normally tries to stay out of everyone's way. The longest she has ever been in one area was her home clan, for 15 moons. ||contact info:|| kik~ that.girl.whoBITES or beccabitee

Sparx_and_DocPhantom_READ More than 1 year ago
So. My nook was taken away so I cannot chat like I used to. I tried to find the chatting room on the pc but could not. Can someone give me the exact title and author please and tell Nightcloud and Dawnfeather to read this please? I have a feeling that I may not have the nook back for a long time so I am stuck posting from the laptop whenever I am on and connected to the Internet....which is not as often. Anyways. I really need to chat, That clan has saved me from many bad feelings, Going to it after an argument with my parents really helped calm me down. And with DocPhantom loving Nightcloud and Sparx loving Dawnfeather, my moods greatly bettered and I felt normal for once. My parents seclude me and this was the only social life I was able to have... So please either tell me the location, or if it not on the pc list, then can I make a new one please? I especially want Nightcloud and Dawnfeather to join it. I am sorry for this concurrence and was greatly depressed by it myself.

Beautiful black she cat with pinkish underbelly and paws. Has orange eyes and bushy tail. She has four kits and her mate (deceased) is Gorsetail. Her crush is someone named Sparx. Her mother was Juniperheart and my father was Bonewhisker. Both of which are deased. Worst enemy is Russetpelt (the cat who led the attack on my clan).

Name-..... Age- 14 moons. Gender- female. Appearence- very dark grey pelt. On one haunch there is a silver cresent moon with a spot in it. She has a scar that runs from her forehead to her eye to her lower jaw, therefor missing an eye. Her one eye is white. She has weird joints so she can fit into unusual places. History- long story short, she was born a rogue to a cat named Mitzi. Obsidian had one brother, fleck. One day her mum left and never came back so shd and fleck live on their own. The two siblings could not be separared. Until one day. They went hunting and got attacked by a bear. It was a cub but still dangerous. Fleck died and obsidian lost her eye. And her brother. She has been living on her own ever since. Other- ask:3

Name: Shiresoul, named for the beauti country side where she was born. <br> <br> Age: 19 moons. <br> <br> Gender: &female (female). <br> <br> Rank: Warrior. <br> <br> Appearance: Shiresoul has a pale grey pelt, that is sleek (like RiverClan) and soft. Her chest and tailtip are flecked with dark grey, and her left ear is black. She has black socks on all but her right forepaw. Her build is pretty well muscled after living in the wild for her whole life, and her stature is tall because of her limbs being long. <br> <br> Persona: Friendly most of the time, slightly hotheaded when it comes to fights, but wil always stick up for friends and family. <br> <br > Kin: <br> Mother, Bluesmoke (Living, whereabouts unknow). <br> Father, Thorntree (Death suspected, but unknown). <br> Uncle, Rainpelt (Living, hereabouts unknown). <br> Sister, Lorientree (Living, whereabouts unknown). <br> <br> History: Shiresoul was born to a grey she cat named Bluesmoke, and a golden brown tom known as Thorntree. Her sister was called Lorientree. Shiresoul ad her family lived on a moor, near a large forest. When she was growing up, her father was just a name, never a real cat. The tom had been wandering the forest in search of prey for his mate and newborn kits, but never came out. Bluesmoke's brother, Rainpelt, had gone in search for the tom, but came back alone. When they were kits, Shiresoul and her sister always thought of their uncle as father figure, in place of the one they lost. Even though she was fully grown, Shiresoul stayed with her mother, as did her sister, so she could care for the aging she cat. One day, Bluesmoke started rambling one about Thorntree. The poor old queen had parted from her right mind moons ago. As she was rambling, she seemed to blame Shiresoul. Somehow, in Bluesmoke's mind, Shiresoul wa the cause of Thorntree's disappearance, and the old cat drove her daughter away. Heartbroken for her mother, Shiresoul was forced to leave. After that, the young she cat wandered the moors and forests as a loner, until she came upon EmberClan. <br> <br> RPer: Y. P. F. Jordan. <br> <br> Other: She has no crush or anything. Obviously. Anything else, just ask! <br> <br> ~&#404<_>. &#420<_>. &#402<_>. J&#1060&real&delta&alpha&eta
