My family is my life, and everything else comes second as far as what's important to me.

Swan is a oriental long-haired cat, with soft whispy feather-like fur that particularly sticks out along her appendages and her flanks. Primarily, she is a pale white with lilac points on her ears and her bottle-brush tail; tinting half of it as if she were dipped into a creamy gray paint. A few off-colored spots mare her upper body on no particular pattern, as well as a large splotch that mars her left eye.
Her features such as her paw pads and her nose are a pale pink, and her eyes are bright, lively green.
Swan seemed destined to be someone's mother; if not for her own kits, than for someone else's. She has always worried over the well-being of others; often being the first to lend a paw when it comes to a cat in need. She is usually found taking up the mantle of a peacekeeper; never wanting to cause a fight, as she has learned that fighting has simply lead to the needless loss of life.
She is a soft-spoken she-cat, prone to letting her emotions get the best of her. When she is happy, she can be deleriously taken away with good humor...but the same can go for her darker emotions. Rarely angry, she is more prone to being serious despondant and sad if anything were to happen. Losing her kits, be they adult or still children, is a major blow and has been known to make her desperately sad for long periods.
She is a cat who takes everything to heart; and despite her age, she can be a little naive when it comes to jokes. She takes things, all things, seriously.
Swan was born to two loyal, if elderly home-guards as part of their last litter; in fact, they only bore one kit; herself. Due to being born late in the season, she was rather lonely without many siblings: she made friends with one of the only other cats her age, Raven, and bonded immediately. They would often playfully try to one-up one another as they played, and became somewhat competitive when they were to-bes...but they never really took things too far, and eventually fell in love and became mates in the adult life.
As she grew older, she noticed that it was rather odd for there to be few cats in the nursery. She began to dream of having a large family, especially when her parents were killed in an accident shortly before she became a full prey-hunter. She leaned instead on Raven, and it was no surprise to anyone that she was expecting his kits a mere moon afterwards.
She gave birth to a large litter, and raised her first children with the careful guiding paw that her mother had taught her. They grew up to be fine hunters and guards, but unfortunately she would lose two of her sons - Pigeon and Wren - during a particularly harsh leaf-bare. She would lose her only daughter, Robin, as well; as the she-cat was killed in a border skirmish with a badger.
Soon though, she was pregnant again; giving birth to another litter. This brood was a little more successful, as only one of them, Dove, was killed in a battle with the clans. By the time she was expecting her third litter, she seemed almost a fixture in the nursery as much as with a hunting party.
Sadly, her third litter was not a lucky one; shortly after her kits were born, a flash flood caused her to lose all but one of her children; Hawk. She was devistated for a long time, and became even more protective of those she had left to her; even her adult children.
Since Hawk, her youngest, has become a to-be, she has returned to being a prey-hunter. But she is worried about the current state of affairs, and what it means for her family.
