Mothkit - (The Magnificent) Mothpaw - The Magnificent Mothglowof ShadowClan "Someone has to help! If we don't, who will?"
The Dreamer - ShadowClan Medicine Cat x i believe in make-believe; fairy tales and lucky charms
Scorchstar [Father] Though she still loves her father, and looked up to him for a long time, in the aftermath of everything involving StagClan... She's found a lot of things she disagrees with and disapproves of.
Minnowcall [Mother] She loved her mother, but they weren't exactly close.
Silent Snows [Sister] She loves her sister unconditionally, despite all the issues they've dealt with. Mothglow still wishes to repair their relationship somehow. Poppyheart [Half-Brother, Mentor] Her first mentor and elder brother, she looked up to him.
Asterspark [Half-Brother] Her elder brother, she looks up to him.
Mentors and Apprentices:
mentors and apprentices:
Poppyheart [First Mentor] [see Family]
Thornstar [Second Mentor] She's intimidated by Thornstar at times, but still looks up to and respects her. Considers her a mother figure after their time together on the West Shore after the flood.
Friends and Enemies:
Batbite [ThunderClan] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs.
Lynxtail [ThunderClan] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs.
Minkpaw/Strom [RiverClan] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs.
Aspenheart [WindClan Medicine Cat] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs. Now also a fellow medicine cat.
Eaglepaw [SkyClan] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs.
Copperheart [ThunderClan] Lynxtail and Batbite's brother. He's fun to talk to.
Sharptooth [ThunderClan Exile]
Amberdawn [Kittypet] SkyClan's former medicine cat. Looks up to her, but also considers her a friend.
Mossbloom [ThunderClan Medicine Cat Apprentice] ThunderClan's medicine cat apprentice. One of her closest friends.
Mistleshine [RiverClan Medicine Cat Apprentice] RiverClan's medicine.
Appearance: A large long-furred black tabby with vibrant orange eyes, Mothglow bears a striking resemblance to her father, Scorchstar. Under her thick fur she has a few scars from being captured by Twolegs as an early apprentice, but they're barely visible. She always moves with confidence, and is unable to keep still. Oftentimes she seems to bounce on her paws and shift her weight from side to side, usually when told not to move.
Personality: "StarClan honors your inner light and seemingly endless supply of love." - Thornstar Mothglow is idealistic and enthusiastic in all that she does, though she sometimes comes on a little too strong to those unfamiliar with her. She believes in showing compassion to others regardless of who they are or where they come from. Time has tempered her aggressive nature into something kinder; and where she once responded to any hint of danger with outright aggression she now does her best to see the best in everyone and everything (though occasionally her pacifistic nature and refusal to hurt others gets her into trouble or makes things difficult).
(Even the darkest nights will end with the rising sun, though another night is sure to follow.)
She is naturally curious and enjoys exploring and playing games, however childish she may seem, though she's smarter than she sometimes lets on. Friendly and outgoing, she is protective of those close to her, attempting to defend them from harm. She tries to believe the best in everyone, and thinks that in an ideal world everyone could be friends - to that effect, she also believes that they can make this world ideal. Extroverted and incredibly outgoing, when left alone she falls into a panic and is unable to act. Because of this, she's terrified of being left alone. In addition, she has an unfortunate tendency to ignore her own problems until she breaks down.
Favorite prey type is frogs/lizards Likes moths (also other types of bugs, but primarily moths) and collects them Couldn't be stealthy if her life depended on it virtues: kindness and enthusiasm human name: Autumn Melaina voice claim
"Someone has to help! If we don't, who will?" - Blood In Common
Starlit Silence Mothkit and Silentkit sneak out of the nursery to see the night sky, and Scorchstar catches them in the act.
The Belly Of The BeastAct I, Act II, Act III Mothpaw sneaks out of camp with Silentpaw to go see the place where Gatherings take place. Once they find Fourtrees, though, they get kidnapped by twolegs along with some other apprentices. They escape, but have to find their way home through the Twolegplace.
Tell The World; I'm Coming Home I, II After finding their way back to the Clan territories after the events of The Belly Of The Beast, Mothpaw and Silentpaw are almost home. Burntpaw finds them in the snow and helps them get back to ShadowClan camp, where they are finally reunited with their family and Clanmates - bar one. Mothpaw's brother and mentor, Poppyheart, is nowhere to be found.
Ready, Set, Nope. Mothpaw goes out for training with her new mentor Thornbriar and her other apprentice Silverpaw after learning that her original mentor, Poppyheart, disappeared not long after she and Silentpaw did.
January Gathering 2019 At Mothpaw's first actual Gathering she meets Copperpaw, the brother of her friends Lynxpaw and Batpaw, as well as getting to see her friends from the Twolegplace Journey once again.
Shadows Fall, Hope Is Lost [SC Flood Topic] ShadowClan camp is flooded in the middle of the night, when everyone is sleeping. In the ensuing chaos, Mothpaw is swept away from Clan territory-- and, more frightening than that, loses sight of her family.
Tearing Through After washing up on an unfamiliar shore, Mothpaw desperately searches for someone familiar. Her wish is eventually granted in the form of stumbling across her mentor, Thornbriar, but also her recently-deceased mother's body.
Bridging The Gap [Swept Away Topic] The West and East Shore cats are reunited; and Mothpaw in particular is reunited with not only her father and sister, but also her brothers Asterspark and Poppyheart. However, she also has to deliver to her father the news of her mother's fate.
Let's Try This Again Mothpaw, excited at being back with her sister Silentpaw once again, wants to go on an adventure. Silentpaw has some reservations about this idea.
Starry Nights On the Clan cats' last night at the lakeshore, Mothpaw's dream is visited by a StarClan cat that introduces himself as Thornbriar's brother, Sootstrike.
Blood In Common [Newleaf Tears Finale] Though the cats swept to the lakeshore have finally returned home, Mothpaw volunteers for a battle patrol to venture into the mountains and help the cats who managed to escape. The experience of watching her friends and family risk (and lose) their lives leaves her overwhelmed and uncertain of what she wants to do.
Home Destroyed Home Along with the cats from the mountains, Mothpaw finally returns home to ShadowClan's near-completely destroyed camp.
Change Of Fate A few days after returning to the Clans, something occurs to Mothpaw: ShadowClan doesn't have a medicine cat, and after her experiences in the mountains she no longer wants to follow the path of a warrior. She brings her concerns to Scorchstar and offers to become a medicine cat apprentice.
Mothpaw's Medicine Cat Apprentice Ceremony SkyClan's younger medicine cat, Amberdawn, takes Mothpaw to the Moonstone for her medicine cat apprentice ceremony. In StarClan, she is greeted by two kind StarClan cats who promise to teach her as best they can. After, she receives an ominous message from a ShadowClan warrior named Flamestrike; who tells her that ShadowClan will be destroyed and that there is nothing she can do to stop it.
June 2019 Medicine Cat Meeting Mothpaw's first medicine cat meeting, and formal introduction to most of the other medicine cats. She's pleasantly surprised to see more than one familiar face.
Red Like Roses Foxes are encroaching on ShadowClan's territory. The ensuing fight leads to Scorchstar's death (as well as the near-deaths of others).
September Gathering 2019 A different kind of chaos unleashes at the Gathering, as a SkyClan queen's kits are delivered at Fourtrees.
September Medicine Cat Meeting A stranger named Sunpaw appears in Mothpaw's dream, giving her pieces of a prophecy and telling her to piece them together on her own. Also, Amberdawn is gone and Sagelight has taken her place.
Mothpaw's Medicine Cat Ceremony A despondent Mothpaw is cleaned up by Thornstar and finally taken to the Moonstone to receive her full medicine cat name - Mothglow.
Uncrossing the Line After speaking with StarClan at her medicine cat ceremony, Mothglow caught a glimpse of a cat that looked suspiciously like her sister, Silent Snows. Now, she races back to ShadowClan to confirm or deny her suspicions.
Acquainted With The Night After Silent Snows' death, Mothglow copes in her own way; speaking to the stars to find peace for herself, wondering if they're listening.
November Medicine Cat Meeting 2019 At the half-moon medicine cat meeting, Mothglow receives an incomplete message from StarClan, and a sign she doesn't completely understand regarding Nightpaw.
Equisse of Violence [WAR]//Lionize The tension between ShadowClan and SkyClan breaks into bloodshed along with an unexpected third party, and Mothglow finds herself unable to do anything to help as cats on both sides die for what feels like no reason at all.
December Gathering 2019 As the first Gathering since the war between ShadowClan, SkyClan and ThunderClan approaches, Mothglow attempts to remain neutral despite her part in things.
Dark Won't Yield To Dawn Seeing Thornstar's depression in the wake of the war, Mothglow decides to spend some time with her adoptive mother - and have some much-needed conversations.
Lost Package A stranger has appeared on ShadowClan territory, injured and unconscious.
In The Spirit Of The Season Mothglow, on her last visit to the Moonstone, found what she believes to be a piece that may have chipped off of the stone. There's one cat in particular that she finds it reminds her of.
Sharp Thorn Thingies Flintshard and Frecklepaw wind up in Mothglow's den after an encounter with a porcupine.
January Gathering 2020 The truth about Thornstar's kits is out in the open, as is the identity of their father. StarClan is angry, and Mothglow is resentful towards her ancestors.

Batkit - Batpaw - Batbiteof ThunderClan "You've scarred an apprentice for life tonight, I'm sure. Congratulations."
The Rebel - ThunderClan Runaway Warrior x some people would say to accept defeat; well if this is fate then we'll find a way to cheat
Leopardstar [Adopted Father] Her father, blood or no blood. She looks up to him and wants to be able to protect the things she loves like he could.
Oakstar [Mentor, Father Figure] Dad #2! Looks up to him almost as much as she does to Leopardstar.
Birdflight [Adopted Sister] Looks up to her, as a more experienced warrior.
Copperheart (Copper) [Brother] Her brother, and one of the cats she's closest to. Her partner in crime and fellow troublemaker.
Lynxtail (Lynx) [Brother] Her brother, and one of the cats she's closest to. They're even closer after surviving being kidnapped by Twolegs together.
Minkpaw/Strom (Mink/Strom) [Mate] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs. They grew closer when they felt like neither of them fit in with their clans, and they ran away together to start something new.
Mentor and Apprentices:
mentor and apprentices:
Oakstar [Former Mentor] Looks up to him almost as much as she does Leopardstar.
Friends and Enemies:
Silent Snows [ShadowClan] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs. Fellow small friend. Mothglow's sister.
Mothglow [ShadowClan Medicine Cat] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs. Silent Snows' sister.
Aspenheart [WindClan Medicine Cat] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs.
Eaglepaw [SkyClan] One of the cats who was also kidnapped by Twolegs. Fondly remembered.
Waspburn (Wasp) [RiverClan] Batbite defended Wasppaw against a SkyClan apprentice at a Gathering, and has since decided that Wasppaw is a close friend of hers. Thinks of her like a sister, and has a lot of respect for her after what happened in the mountains.
Sharptooth [ThunderClan Exile] She protected the kidnapped Clan cats and helped them find their way home. Fondly remembered.
Ferretnose (Ferret) [ThunderClan] Apprentices at the same time. Started to truly consider her a friend while in the mountains after the flood.
Mossbloom (Moss) [ThunderClan Medicine Cat Apprentice] Considers her to be pleasant company and a decent friend. Also, less intimidating than Pricklebush.
Appearance: Batbite is noticeably smaller than the average Clan cat, due in part to being abandoned along with her siblings as a kit. Her fur is long and thick, and a pitch-black color, hiding the few scars she's gained throughout her life so far. Her eyes are a bright green, and usually sparkling with mischief. Despite her size and her origins, she looks much like any other Clan cat and keeps her head held high, carrying herself with pride - unless, of course, she's currently sneaking up on an unsuspecting victim.
Personality: "StarClan honors your humor and dedication." - Leopardstar Typically cheerful and outgoing (and incredibly dramatic), it often seems that Batbite takes almost nothing seriously. She's always got an idea or two to try, even if they're not the most well thought out. Eager to make friends, she's not particularly aggressive, though she's prone to playing tricks on even those she counts among her friends. She tends to stay close to her family despite her outgoing nature, partly because she's secretly afraid of being abandoned again. Despite her impulsive and energetic nature, she possesses a surprising amount of patience and respect for planning ahead - and occasionally shows a drier sense of humor than one might expect. A dangerously impulsive individual, she's bound to run into trouble. Despite her playful personality, she is willing to take things seriously if someone or something she cares for is threatened.
She feels no personal ties or attachment to the warrior code, and strongly disagrees with some of its policies, but remains mostly within them for the sake of her family. She has little issue, however, with breaking most other rules; especially if they somehow interfere with her understanding of right and wrong. She also possesses a sense of wanderlust that often takes her to the edge of the territory, staring out into what lies beyond the borders. Of late, she acts primarily in her own self-interest, and resents herself for it.
Occasionally refers to her closest friends/family members by their prefix or some other nickname Favorite prey is squirrels Lacks respect for rules she doesn't understand, particularly regarding borders and friendships Prefers stealth to outright aggression Prefers talking things out to fighting in general voice claim virtues: humor and dedication, cleverness and integrity vices: pride, wrath, envy human name: Nocturne
"You've scarred an apprentice for life tonight, I'm sure. Congratulations." - January Gathering 2019
Deja Vu Leopardstar finds a litter of abandoned kits in ThunderClan territory, and decides to take them in as his own.
This Is Home The recently-named Batkit, along with her siblings, starts to adjust to life in ThunderClan.
The Belly Of The BeastAct I, Act II, Act III Batpaw catches Lynxpaw sneaking out of camp while sick, and follows him both because she's worried about his safety and curious about where it is he's going. They end up at Fourtrees along with several other apprentices, and are kidnapped by twolegs. While they manage to escape their captors, they have to find their way home through the Twolegplace.
A Family Reunion After the events of The Belly Of The Beast, Lynxpaw and Batpaw are finally back in ThunderClan territory; and reunited with their brother Copperpaw at last.
Welcome Back Patrol After their triumphant return to ThunderClan, Marshstorm takes Lynxpaw and Batpaw on a hunting patrol and offers to answer one of their questions for every piece of prey they catch.
January Gathering 2019 At Batpaw's first Gathering, she sees her Twolegplace friends again, and befriends Wasppaw; a RiverClan apprentice who causes chaos.
Batpaw's Moonstone Journey Batpaw's faith in StarClan is hesitant at best, and she doesn't have especially high hopes for her Moonstone journey. Despite that, Drizzlepaw's time with her is enough to give her faith in something.
Thunder Crashes [TC Flood Topic] ThunderClan's camp floods in the middle of the night, while everyone is sleeping. Batpaw manages to escape being swept away, but loses sight of her family in the chaos.
I Hate You, You Hate Me After an irritating conversation, Batpaw accepts a challenge from a Tribe cat to go hunting along with a ShadowClan warrior; to not only prove herself but also prove a point.
Looking For Trouble The Clan cats have been with the Tribe for a few days, and Batpaw is already bored again. She decides to make her own fun by playing pranks on the other cats, which seems like a great idea until she gets caught by her own prey.
Blood In Common [Newleaf Tears] The Clan cats taking shelter in the mountains must fight not only the dogs that drove away WindClan and SkyClan, but also the Sharptooth that endangers the Tribe cats.
A New Hope [TC Reunion Topic] After the events of the mountain battle, Batpaw returns home with her Clanmates; and after a tearful reunion she learns that Copperheart, Lynxtail, Leopardstar and Marshstorm are alive and well.
July Gathering 2019 [We Are Golden] During the Gathering, Batbite makes plans to meet up with Minkpaw a few days later to continue their conversation.
The Wretched Truth Batbite, along with the rest of ThunderClan, learns what became of Ridgelight's kits; and witnesses Ridgelight's exile.
A Mysterious Meeting [We Are Golden] Batbite and Minkpaw meet at Fourtrees, as planned during the previous Gathering. They come up with a rumor that peaceful former Clan cats are living in the barn near Highstones.
One Of Those Ghosts Some time after her resolution, Batbite hasn't yet spoken to Strom about her plan to return home. After yet another sleepless night, she realizes that she can't stay much longer, and wonders how she lost the ability to see herself in her own reflection.
Been on at least 1 patrol Had at least 1 development topic Been a Tier 1 warrior for at least 2 weeks
The Lover - WindClan Warrior x be not afraid, come follow me; answer my call and i'll set you free
Dianella [Mother, NPC] A clever hunter and talented fighter, Dianella taught her daughters many things: how to hunt, how to fight, and - perhaps most importantly - how to avoid conflict. She often shared tales of their ancestors, as well - the same ancestors that walked where the stars shone, and followed them throughout their lives; wherever their paths would lead. It is this particular wisdom that gives Zinnia peace on lonely nights.
Chrysanthemum [Father, NPC] Chrysanthemum taught his kits the value of kindness; in a way their mother couldn't match. Each day he went out of his way to offer assistance to all who asked (and many who didn't), and at the beginning of each day he'd present his mate with treasures he'd found on his little adventures; often bringing flowers back for his daughters as well. It was from him that Zinnia learned to never turn away from those in need - a philosophy she holds close to her heart even now, so far from home.
Lunaria [Sister, NPC] Lunaria is Zinnia's older sister, and one of the handful of healers in the Garden. Mostly, she deals with the plants; tending to the ones that grow within the garden and - more rarely - venturing into the outskirts of their territory to find the few things that don't grow there. Calm and gentle, she values peace and quiet; but rarely refuses to company of her family. It's thanks to her that Zinnia can name a handful of plants, though their uses have long since escaped her.
Primrose [Sister, NPC] Primrose is Zinnia's youngest sister, and unlike her kin she hasn't decided what she wants to do with her life - or, at least, she hadn't decided the last time Zinnia saw her. Socializing, playing games and trying a little bit of everything is how she spends her time; with plenty of catnaps. Some days she'll spend by the shallows of the water, keeping an eye on adventurous kits; others she tags along with the daily hunting patrol, and still others she doesn't do much of anything. Still, despite her lack of ambition (and the fact that she's often somewhat unreliable), she's always supported the choices of those around her, even if she doesn't understand them - in particular those her sisters have made.
Finchstar The first Clan cat she encountered, Finchstar showed Zinnia nothing but kindness despite the Clan in which he resided having fallen on dangerous times. She considers him an honorable and wise individual as well as a respectable leader; and is proud to call him a friend.
Appearance Somewhat taller and more lithe than the average forest-dwelling cat, Zinnia's medium-length fur is a very pale gray with hints of white and tabby stripes that, though they are a slightly darker gray, sometimes seem to shift into hints of golden. Her brilliant green eyes are often found turned upward, looking to the sky on sunny days and starry nights alike. She carries herself always with grace and dignity.
Personality While Zinnia is overall perfectly capable of caring for herself, and certainly not a child, she's often lost in a world of her own - one that makes little sense to Clan cats. How much of her oddness is part of the distant culture she hails from and how much is entirely unrelated remains unclear. Her attention is easy to catch and hard to keep, though she doesn't mean anything by it - she always seems genuinely apologetic whenever she catches herself zoning out of a conversation, eager to learn all she can about the Clans and their way of life. However, if one were to try and settle on a single word to describe her, they may decide on 'peaceful'. A relaxed individual who tends to go with the flow, she dislikes and actively avoids conflict. What she truly enjoys, however, is the pursuit of happiness - left on her own, she does the things that bring her joy, which are often simple and even strange to those unfamiliar. That pursuit has led her to WindClan, where she has decided to stay and lend her skills. One might assume her to be gullible or easily tricked, and this is true to an extent - she offers her kindness and assistance to any who request it. But should she realize she has been tricked or betrayed, she will not take it well.
Born in a distant place known as the Garden Carries the culture from her birthplace with her even in these distant Clan territories A strict - albeit conditional - pacifist, she fights other cats only when attacked, though predator and prey receive no such mercy voice claim Often talks to the breeze or the night sky
the flower on the breeze [solo] After catching wind of a society of cats living beyond the stone and strange, unfamiliar structures of the Twolegplace, Zinnia sets off in hope of finding a place that feels a little more like home.
dear fellow traveler Zinnia encounters a cat by the name of Finchstar in the closest place she's found to the Garden since leaving it, and learns of the foxes plaguing the territory.
sunset; moonrise Unwilling to let innocents suffer, Zinnia seeks out Finchstar to offer herself to their cause. He accepts, and while she keeps her name, Zinnia becomes a warrior of WindClan.
November Gathering 2019 Zinnia's first Gathering proves to be an interesting - if slightly overwhelming - experience.
Sounds Of Life Zinnia and Raventail spend some time getting to know each other.
Glass Animals In the chaos of the ambush on WindClan's camp, Zinnia inadvertently breaks the only rule she's ever lived by - never to harm another cat.
December Gathering 2019 The first Gathering after the confrontation with Ovinnik and Dae, and the first time Zinnia has found herself prepared for the event.
Silent Night In the aftermath of the confrontation with the pelt-wearing predator-cats, Zinnia reflects; and comes to accept that living in WindClan means she must change as well.
January Gathering 2020 Finally accustomed enough to Fourtrees to make the trip there absentmindedly, Zinnia finds herself zoning out during the Gathering, and witnesses StarClan's wrath.
