————— THE DANGEROUS MASTERMIND —————--BASICS--
Name :: Lotus
Gender :: She-cat
Age :: 72 moons
Description :: A brown she-cat with fierce copper eyes
Position :: Rogue--PHYSIQUE--
AppearanceWearing mostly an expressionless face imposes hidden meanings, dangers and unpredictability of the deceptive rogue. Furthermore, her sharply narrowed eyes burn as fierce as the sun of golden-copper colours. The illuminating coppers contrast with the bold ring of black around her sly eyes, enhancing her frighteningly expressionless face. She was born blind in her left eye and is often very difficult for other cats to recognise the disability as both her eyes physically seem normal. The brown face is slim and triangular shaped. Shades of brown vary across her face; the muzzle, the area under and around the eyes are lighter shades, and the darker shades form a very subtle 'mask' (cheeks, nose bridge, forehead area). Her small nose is triangular and are shades of brown and tan. Lotus has two broad, triangular ears with tufts of dark fur sprouting at the tips. Her flashing, white fangs are smaller than average but are just as sharp as any other cat.
The brown fur of chocolate, coffee and sandy shades mix throughout her pelt. It is short and rugged, giving off the rough texture and feel. Lotus often feels the chill in cold conditions and favours warmer temperatures.
An average sized feline with a toned and muscular build, this muscle also adds weight to her body. She has long and very toned leg muscles with small feet and dark drown pads beneath. Lotus has long claws with a lethal point.The length of her tail is longer than average. She moves on three legs as her lower right hind leg is mauled and is missing a few claws in her front paws.
Lotus' body and face is heavily scarred, some are permanent and some are temporary. The temporary scars are usually freshly red small scratches and bites. Permanent scars are usually old and large, dried and dark. She has noticeable black gashes on the left side of her neck.
The sound of her voice is harsh and husky-like. It carries a tone of teasing and playfulness, some manner of politeness but with a scary linger of danger about it.Her emotions are hard and unpredictable to read.
AbilitiesThe greatest strength of the brown cat is her high intellectual ability however, it is inappropriately used for her cunning, deceptive and manipulative acts on many cats. Her dangerous mastermind behaviour has made her become notoriously known for committing deception and chaotic occurrences between cats. She has also used this ability to gather information, share that information with others in order to commit her acts of deception.
Lotus is a tactical and strategic battler with well developed battle techniques due to her mental ability. She is a fast paced battler and fights optimally in an environmentally smaller/crowded/obstructed areas (e.g. trees, rocks, cliffs, caves, dense vegetation) as she specialises in taking advantage of her environmental surroundings to optimise her battle movements. She doesn't fight as optimally in wide open areas with limited environmental surroundings to work with which may require running (speed is a weakness). Also, her balance may not always be great during fights and hunts however, with her intellectual ability she will avoid areas which reveal her weaknesses and use the areas which will be to her advantage.
The three-legged cat is very capable of running, climbing and moving just as quickly as any cat but her mauled leg can sometimes disadvantage her in terms of speed and balance. It also affects her swimming ability, she isn't a strong swimmer against powerful, rushing water. She is effective battling up in trees because she specialises in taking advantage of environmental surroundings to aid her in survival.
Her endurance/stamina is high and strong however, she prefers to be a fast paced battler and often attacks in instant movements. She can't exactly take advantage of her stamina, especially over long distance runs as her leg injury disadvantages her speed.
Toned muscles allow powerful blows and extra crushing weight however, some battle techniques of which requires standing on one hind leg may lead to her disadvantage in battles.
The disability of being born blind in one eye has allowed her to develop sharp senses especially of sight detection in the right eye, hearing, accuracy, reaction and reflexes however, her right blind eye may hinder her in battles if the opponent is silent. Since both eyes appear physically normal, it is often hard for others to recognise that she has a blind eye.
Her hunting ability varies. She is a poor hunter in wide open areas which require long distance running however, areas crowded with environmental components can be made use of for her fast paced movements.--PERSONALITY--
Likes :: Deceiving other cats, values natural beauty such as flowering plants, insects for food
Loves :: Gathering information just for knowledge (and perhaps to use it in some way of deception), has a particular interest in intelligent and reasonable cats, having freedom and free will
Hates :: To be bound by an alliance with a code to follow, to be controlled, pitied or looked down by another cat
Fears :: To change - as her intellectual ability makes her very aware of herself which makes it difficult for her and fearful of how and what she'd change into
Flaws :: Her injuries which may lead to some disadvantages such as speed, balance and limited use of techniques, other flaws found in 'Abilities' section of the biographyThe expressionless face reflects no emotions but her burning eyes show some slyness and trickery, she is difficult to read and understand. Lotus is highly intelligent and cunning, dangerously deceitful and teasing and a mysterious and confusing trickster. She deceives others because her high mastermind games cause interesting events to occur between cats which is her entertainment. It is being intelligent and having a strong mental understanding of abstract and non-abstract ideas which make her bored in life to want to deceive others and see if it offers unusual reactions. Lotus will often deceive and manipulate others for her own benefits such as gathering information.
She has a composed, collected and indifferent aura about her with a lingering danger about it. This behaviour makes her hardly angered and she never attacks out of anger and without reason. Though, her reasons tend to be for her own benefits of deceitful acts and she'd prefer to keep some cats alive for that use too. Lotus isn't worried about death or anything in life, she will face most things as it challenges her and risk her life with an indifferent attitude.
Nobody knows her true self, even she does not know her true self and fears to change which may or may not reveal her true self and the fear of the new path she'll have to wonder. But she feels indifferent towards this matter at the moment and is content with the way she lives her life so she does not need or care to change. Her deceptive behaviour makes her seem dangerous, confident and strong on the outside but being intellectually aware of herself and fear of changing makes her fragile on the inside and inability to understand her true self. However, no cat has ever tried to look for her fragile side as her strong and dangerous side is much more dominant. Lotus also doesn't open up to other cats and often lies, another factor which makes her wonder about her true being. She isn't a character of trust and honesty.
Lotus has no strong morals or beliefs - she feels quite indifferent towards most topics and usually will give a light opinion on it. With a high intellectual ability, she is able to have deep and sentimental thoughts which she wonders about but she will usually feel indifferent about it. These emotional thoughts usually link to her strong self-awareness and moral reasoning. Although her intelligent mind is used for deception, she has strong understandings and can have powerful and meaningful thoughts and ideas but she rarely speaks it. Strangely, she values natural beauty such as flowering plants and calm ponds or lakes.
Not a typical disrespectful, bloodthirsty and vicious rogue but will live her life by freedom and of her own free will. Generally, she is a quiet type of feline and will listen to others and consider their thoughts but with an indifferent attitude. However, this behaviour could just be a form of deception to gather and use information. She will not mind banding with a few rogues or other cats, making deals with other cats or socialising with other cats in some way but in the end, she will most definitely deceive them. She seeks other intelligent cats as they mayhave interesting concepts and will be an interesting challenge. Lotus lives differently from other cats and will live her life alone, bound by absolutely nothing. But she knows, one day she'll have to meet the day to confront her fear of change for better or worse.--HISTORY--
Kin :: None alive
— birth of the beautiful and pure lotus —
Lotus lived in lake terrains with dense and lush vegetation, within cliffed and rocky areas of a part of the gorge way further up from the Windclan and Riverclan bordering part. The mother gave birth to a litter of one and died from a disease many weeks after Lotus' birth. Her grandfather who was also born blind in one eye and father raised Lotus and shared a close bond with her. Innocent and curious she was, the kitten often explored the rocky and wet terrains of her home. Her guardians would share their advice, tales and knowledge with her in which her intelligence built on from. This new wisdom helped her in explorations and discovering new knowledge from her surrounding environment. Lotus was proud and respected her two guardians the most as she believed they were the wisest and strongest.THE RED LOTUS FLOWER
— symbolises the heart of love, passion and compassion —
Still young and exploring the lands and beyond. It was around this time she had discovered the clan cats weren't just tales. Her knowledge further expanded and ventured to many places where she obtained information about interesting events, but she always returned home to her guardians. Lotus found other cats in the area to play with and would use her knowledge appropriately to share news and give help, she was also quite the playful and active one. Exploring and knowing about the world of cats was her greatest adventure and also learning from her guardians.
As time passed, she noticed her intellectual ability was greater than the group of cats she played with and felt superior. At first she only teased them with cunning remarks just for fun and laughs. Lotus still adventured into other lands and eventually clashed with other cats in battles. In her explorative travels, she encountered and battled dangerous animals. Slowly, her intellectual ability came through to aid in overcoming challenges. Although she was being battle trained by her guardians, she was able to train herself in new techniques and began taking advantage of her intelligence to strengthen her survival ability. The further she traveled away from home, the more experience and knowledge she obtained and the more troubles she caused as she became a bit mischievous and thieved for food during the cold seasons.EMERGING BLUE LOTUS FLOWER
— symbolises the wisdom of knowledge and closed heart —
Eventually, her behaviour extended to becoming somewhat deceitful and definitely known to be cunning as she became bored with the same information gathered and toyed with the minds of cats. When she returned home from her long journey through the lands, her grandfather and father were disappointed and raged at Lotus' notorious existence. This is because her old aged guardians respected and treated wisdom and knowledge quite preciously, they never expected Lotus to use it for manipulating others.
A severe battle broke out between the grandfather and Lotus as she dared to manipulate and deceive him. The tight battle resulted in the death of her grandfather and Lotus received many permanent scars and bites and the mauled foot. She left her home area and father to travel further and discovered Shadowclan, Thunderclan and little information on the Cats of Purity. Her journey and challenges were difficult with three legs but over time she adjusted and was able to function quite well. Lotus wandered the land alone and made observations and gathered information in which was used for deceitful and manipulative acts. During this time, she was often caught up in many battles and confrontations. Her intellectual ability made her very aware of herself, it changed her worldview in which she now perceives everything indifferently and without strong morals or beliefs. It is obvious that the once curious and innocent Lotus has changed into a dangerous cat.
Many, many moons had passed and she returned to her father. The gashes in the side of her neck resulted from the fight with her father. Her father was the only cat that she killed in cold blood and without reason. She wonders why. When she killed her grandfather a long time ago, she could feel strong killing intentions from him and had to kill him to save herself. He must have felt very enraged and ashamed to have kin that disgraced wisdom. The time she spent alone after killing her grandfather, she had realized she had surpassed a powerful cat and had some growing intention of killing her father to prove that she has surpassed both her guardians strength and wisdom because she had once believed and respected their talents.
Later on in life, she understood that killing and surpassing her guardians did not satisfy her. Her life had no meaning. Lotus only ever wanted to live happily with others but it seemed her intellectual ability took control of her in the wrong direction and turned her into something dangerous.
The blue lotus flower represents wisdom and the centre or heart of the bud never opens. Lotus has closed off her heart, living life contently and roams the land deceiving others and unable to find her true self. But she shouldn't be pitied for she was the one who chose this path.
Currently, she is interested in the information of the Cats of Purity.

RP sampleTHE RED LOTUS FLOWER
Water droplets slid down the drooping leaf of a fern then clung onto the tip for dear life then it slowly dropped. Plop! It hit the small puddle of dirty water beneath it. Plop! Plop! Plop! Many drops of water flew off the tossing ferns and landed in nearby pools of water as the deceitful feline leaped through and shook the thicket of ferns. Lotus dug her muddy and soaking paws into the spongy soil as she landed softly then stiffly stared behind her. Inhaling the damp air through her nose, she loosened her posture and parted her jaws open to release two dead rabbits she had successfully stolen. A deep red tongue slid out to clean the pale-pink blood stained on the muzzle. Lotus dropped onto the side of her left haunch and stretched her long, front legs forwards. Vibrations of her movements rippled the surface of the pool of water next to her. She lowered her neck down to the puddle and her thirsty tongue slipped through open jaws to lap the water up a few times, she made quick and quiet licking sounds as she quenched her thirst. A faint noise of singing birds was detected by her acute hearing and her judgement tells her that the birds are some distance away from her. She glanced at the freshly killed prey of plump rabbits and her glistening tongue stopped its lapping movements. Lifting her head from her quenched thirst, her narrow copper eyes darkened to crimson under the dark shadows of the forest. They stared blankly ahead of her. Lotus blinked her eyes lightly in thought of her wise guardians back at her lake and cliffed home. She remembered the time when she laughed with them as they feasted on fat rabbits in the tingling warmth of last Greenleaf. Her jaws lowered to crunch her teeth into the haunch of a white rabbit and roughly ripped it off. Blood and the delicious smell of the warm prey intoxicated her nose and chewing mouth.
The birds in the distance chirped in alarmed calls and the noises dispersed. Lotus' prey was half eaten with its red insides sprawled out and drenching its white fur. She tasted the tangy blood of rabbit around her muzzle as she licked it clean. Her expressionless face slowly turned to look at the dark vegetation behind her. Those birds weren't that far away.... Rising onto her three legs, she thought to herself and shifted her eyes towards the stolen prey. Haha, how persistent — I knew they'd follow. Soft rustling noises in the distance grew louder as the pursuing cats approached, possibly with fury. She positioned herself in a relaxed stance and faced her head at the nearing cats with sharp and frightening copper-crimson eyes that will greet them. Her long tail danced languorously behind her and excitement rushed through her in anticipation to toy with her pursuers.
