Screech is a large, broad-shouldered oriental tom with a curved triangle face. His skull shape isn't special- almost every cat born into the Tribe has the same structure. Along with this, he has large, wide ears, a common feature of oriental cats.
He has thick, short dark brown fur and a long, skinny tail. His legs are long and muscular, like the rest of his body. Pure green, almond-shaped eyes shine below Screech's ears, softly squinting when he smiles, and glinting when he's curious. His pupils are usually wider than slits, instead of the appearance of almost no pupils. Long grayish white whiskers stretch out just below his high cheekbones, giving him a better sense of what is around him. A long neck sits atop dark, broad shoulders, with long muscled legs escaping his wide joints. Screech has large dark paws and abnormally long claws. (minor mutation)
Screech is extremely protective of the whole clan and would give his life for anyone in the clan. He would never leave anyone behind no matter the circumstances, even the smallest runt of a kit or the oldest, sickest, weakest elder. He never spends a moment not caring for his clanmates. Being a warrior, or rather, now a leader (yeah, no one saw that coming), he always feels the need to take care of the clan as though they were his family. Even if most of them aren't related to him by blood, he does his best not to favor cats (even though his efforts, in the end, do nothing to stop his subconscious from favoring cats).
No matter what, Screech always gives 110% at whatever he's doing. After he gets hooked onto something or doing something, it would have to take the most persuasive cat to keep him from continuing. Always doing his best with everything, Screech works hard at everything he does. He never half-asses anything and comes at things with a level head. While others might give up on finding a solution to things, Screech has the brains to continue working at things until he gets them right. He's not stupid or anything, nor the wittiest, but he definitely understands everyday things enough to know how to get them done. Screech is determined to do more than just be a plain warrior, and actually do something with his so far simplistic life.
His new clan means so much to him, and he is so loyal to the clan, that he would give his life (or even multiple) for the clan without a second thought. Screech believes the lives of many are more important than the life of one, even if that one is himself. His loyalty to the clan never wavers, and he proves over and over each day how very loyal he is. Screech values loyalty in his tribemates, too, and will occasionally test the loyalty of his peers. Whenever caught between his clan and anything else, he will choose the former with no second thought, his loyalty shining through every moment possible.
Screech is always open to new thoughts or ideas, as he believes suggestions may turn the clan into something even more amazing than it already is. He enjoys critiquing methods and improving things whenever possible, and rarely takes offensive to criticism, even if it comes off rude. He considers all possibilities before going to work, and always knows what to do before he actually does it. Screech responds well to constructive criticism, taking it as an 'opportunity for new opportunities'. He shows this quality nearly every day as he accepts the offers to try out a new fighting technique or meet and talk with cats he doesn't normally do so with.
Screech is in no way your wise old elder who holds great wisdom and has all the greatest stories to tell kits. Rather, at a young age, he isn't very experienced in life. It might take a while for him to understand the responsibility and seriousness of being a leader. He hasn't seen the entire world and what it holds like others might, giving him a somewhat disadvantage when it comes to some things. This tends to lead him to lose arguments lot, so he may need some teaching from other wiser cats if he is to understand the responsibility of leading a whole clan, which he has been thrust into the pressure of doing so.
Along with being quite young, Screech can act quite often even younger than he already is. He's kinda impulsive when it comes to some things, but overall he isn't super serious all the time. Most others are much more mature than him, but nonetheless, he tries to be like them, serious and cold, but he usually fails at doing so. Humor runs his mind, apparently, and he's good at helping others recover by being a personal therapist, but not so much when it comes to decisionmaking and other more dire topics. When things get too stressful, he may crack under the pressure and need someone to lean on while he recovers in silence.
Screech loves his family and friends, and sometimes even too much. He's caring and kindhearted and overall means well, but he prefers his blood family and closest friends over lesser-known cats. It would be rare for him to not favor his family over strangers, but he is still polite and kind to even unknown cats. Quite frequently he may favor one cat over another, with the preferred cat usually being someone he knows personally or cares a lot about. He does this on accident (or so he claims) but his subconscious lets loose when decisionmaking. And, well, his subconscious just really likes his family and friends.
Screech was born to two cats inside the Tribe, though his parents weren't the youngest of mates when they decided to have kits. Both of them on the brink of fifty moons, they finally chose to have kits- and they had a very healthy litter.
Screech has two siblings, a brother, and a sister, who are still alive. Both his siblings are prey-hunters since they are more lean and small than him. His parents, meanwhile, have been retired as elders for a many moons.
Screech was somehow chosen to be the first leader of RootClan, much to his surprise. Such a lowly home-guard like him, suddenly overwhelmed with power and responsibility as the leader. Unlucky? Maybe. But will he step down from his position ever? Hell no.
Carried Home is a Warriors roleplay forum. We feature four clans - all four of which have futures that heavily depend on what your characters do - as well as a 50 word count minimum on RP posts, and a functioning currency and shop.
While most of the action does center around our four clans, members are also permitted to make loners, rogues, and kittypets. You can also make both StarClan and Dark Forest characters.
