Shrikekit is a true mix of her parents. She has the mostly chocolate fur of her father, with his thin build and shortly cropped fur (at least, as soon as her kit-fur evens out as she grows up). Her eyes too will fade from baby-blue to the light green that she shares with her father, rather than the vibrant leafy-hue of her mother.
However, she has a little bit of a more delicate body that she gets from her mother; the entirity of her coat seemingly covered in a smokier hue, as if her mother's paleness is trying to wash her pelt out a bit. She has snowy white markings that cover her belly and throat, as well as half of her muzzle, and a perfect blaze between her eyes. Her back legs are mostly white, while white socks mark her front paws. The fur inside her ears and at the tip of her tail add to the rest of her white markings.
She has rather long, distinguished whiskers - white against the darker fur around her face.
Despite her mother's proding, Shrikekit certainly lives up to the more violent and less songbird aspects of her name. She wants to be one of the boys - rolling around with her brothers and generally being more tom-ish than others. She likes to get down and dirty, unafraid of getting messy and getting into general mischeif - making her somewhat of a terror when it comes to behavior and training. She doesn't like to sit still and listen to other people's advice - and any mentor who has to put up with her underpaw is going to have an issue.
Shrikekit absolutely abhors her mother's belief that she-cats are supposed to serve their clan as a queen first and a warrior second. She doesn't like her old antiquated ideas that they're better hunters than fighters too. Absolutely desperate to prove that if anything, she is better than her taller, bigger siblings, Shrikekit is not delicate flower who'll need to be protected. Indeed; it is more likely that others will need to be protected from her.
Shrikekit was born in a rather fruitful litter; her mother, Swanstream, having her fourth litter with her longtime mate, Ravenbranch, shortly after the former Tribe of Ancient Roots became Rootclan. Most of her siblings, both those the same age as her and older, are all toms; which may have something to do with her mannish mannerisms.
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.
