A lynx point with medium-length fur, that curls back in on itself and gives him a more woolly or sheep-like appearance; the darker markings of his face, or points around his nose and muzzle area, will begin to brighten up a bit to an almost snowy white; giving him a spectacled look around his mid-twenties (Periocular leucotrichia - his color mutation). He has light green eyes which will begin to look a little cloudier around this time as well.
He ironically will begin to live up to his name in apprenticehood as being more hesitant, taking more careful steps. At first he will try to pass this off as being apart of his cautious nature, but will be in fact due to him slowly losing his vision to Macular Degeneration. While not fully going blind, he will only be able to see around the fringes of his vision; a fish-eye lens effect if you will.
Crouchkit is a determined, fiery little fellow who gets into as much trouble as the next kit; liking to pounce first and think later. Unfortunately, caution will only creep in as he gets older and an unseen ailment takes his sight; he will never be completely blind, but it will greatly effect how he feels and sees the world around him.
As his sight worsens, he will grow defensive - doing his best to make sure that others don't pick on him and desperately try to hide his disability so he is able to become a warrior and make his parents proud of him. It will take the calming effect of others to accept him, but deep inside his cautious nature will never completely go away, worrying that others will treat him more delicately as he grows and they learn of his disability.
Crouchkit was born to Mantisclaw as one of five rowdy young toms; the last to be born. Moons prior, she had had flings with two toms so close together that it is hard to tell who the singular father of his brood is.
Other than this, he is a happy enough fellow, with the blissful unknowing nature of a kit.
As he grows, it will be learned that he suffers from Macular Degenration - sapping all but a little of his eyesight. As well, his fur pattern will develop periocular peritrochia around his eyes; giving it a lighter appearance around his eyes, like spectacles.
Mother: Mantisclaw Father: Gossamerheart or Gustwhisker (Double Father Litter) Siblings: Strikekit, -kit, Rushkit, -kit (All Boys)
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.
