--BASICS-- good men must die, but death cannot kill their names. -proverb
Reason behind name: The first part of his name, Cinder, is due to his gray fur. -storm was given to him because he fights fiercely in battle, but is calm and kind everywhere else, much like a storm.
Age: 41 moons
Appearance: A lean and graceful tom, Cinderstorm has short gray fur that covers strong muscles. Deep blue eyes watch the world around him, often displaying some sort of emotion. A long tail keeps him balance and sharp claws help him hunt fish. His fur is mainly just one shade of gray, stuck somewhere between light gray and dark gray. He carries himself with pride and self-confidence, though he will not hesitate to sacrifice pride if it means helping another cat.
Short Description: A fairly unimpressive looking gray tom with deep blue eyes
--PERSONALITY-- we continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die. -albert campus
Personality: Cinderstorm, despite his fierce name, is a completely selfless tom; he will go out of his way to help others, and he views it as more of a habit than some duty ingrained in him. This genuine tom is kind and respectful to other cats, even if they get on his nerves, and he has a lot of patience, willing to answer question and deal with energetic kits that would annoy others. Since he enjoys the company of other cats over solitude, Cinderstorm is often found socializing. He takes his warrior duties very seriously and will not skip them. As a very loyal cat, he hopes that others find him very trustworthy, and he tends to keep the friends he has made. He does not dwell on problems, nor does he hold grudges, always moving on and, for the most part, leaving the past in the past.
When in battle, this gentle-hearted cat becomes fierce and formidable. He is persistent and would fight to his death, often having to be ordered, multiple times, to leave the fray when injured. The combination of his high pain tolerance and adrenaline in battle allows him to keep fighting, ignoring the pain. However, Cinderstorm does not have th best concentration or strategizing skills, often attacking before thinking. The noise and action of a battle tends to distract him.
Ambition: Cinderstorm wants to have a happy family and kits of his own, as well as seeing RiverClan prosper. He also wants to help out everyone that he can.
falling to his death
bonding with others
Attitude towards strangers: He tends to change depending on how the stranger reacts. If the other cat is kind, then he is welcoming, whereas if the other cat is hostile, then he becomes guarded.
Attitude towards Clanmates/familiar cats: Toward clan mates and familiar cats, he is kind, willing to help out and make life easier for other cats.
Three words describing cat overall: selfless, genuine, hopeful
--HISTORY-- experience is simply the name we give our mistakes. -oscar wilde
he is scared of heights
he feels as though he killed Cloudpaw by not warning him about the rock and then startling the other cat
Family: Cinderstorm has stayed close to his family, and they often talk and socialize, valuing one another's company.
History: Cinderkit Born in a loving family with a stillborn brother and a weak sister who died later that night, Cinderkit's parents were afraid he would not survive. When he did, they treasured him, though not to the point of spoiling him, and raised him to be polite and kind to others. When he was about 2 moons old, another kit was born in the nursery, to less experience parents. It was as though the other cats neglected him; it was more like they did not really know how to care for a kit. this kit, Cloudkit, was snow-white and stood out from the others, so Cinderkit befriended him.
Cinderpaw Cinderpaw and Cloudpaw remained friends all the way through their apprentice-ship, and the two curious toms had a fairly uneventful training. It happened when Cinderpaw was 11 moons and Cloudpaw only 9. The two had been walking near the gorge, having sneaked out of camp towards the end of the day in order to see what was so forbidden about the area. They both looked out over the edge, marvelling at how far down the river was beneath it. Cloudpaw made on mistake while trying to see out farther, trusting his wieght on a loose rock. Cinderpaw had known that that rock was loose and had not thought that Cloudpaw would try to venture out farther. Worried, he shouted a warning to his friend, startling Cloudpaw, who then lost his balance and tumbled into the gorge. Cloudpaw was never a strong swimmer and was even weaker after being stunned from his fall. Cinderpaw watched in a panic, not daring to get any closer to the edge, but at the same time, trying to see how he could help his friend. The apprentice could only watch as his friend was swept out of sight by the water, his white head struggling to stay above the surface. Cinderpaw did the only thing he could do: return to camp and tell his story. He left out the part where he had startled his friend, feeling as though he had killed Cloudpaw and knowing that it was his burden to bear alone.
Cinderstorm After a 2 moon delay in becoming a warrior as a punishment, Cinderpaw finally gained his warrior name, Cinderstorm. Despite the happy occasion, he could not help thinking that Cloudpaw should have been up there with him. But after a few moons of dwelling, the new warrior decided to move on. He developed a somewhat new attitude, for his friend's death only strengthened his natural desire to help others. He learned not to dwell on things or hold grudges, for no cat knew how short life could be. The gorge had its lasting effect on him, for Cinderstorm tenses every time he has to walk past the place where his friend fell. Nothing major has happened since Cloudpaw fell. Though never forgetting his friend, Cinderstorm has moved on as best he could, but he still holds onto his guilt for startling the white cat.
Other: Would it be possible for Cloudpaw to have survived and be found my a CoP? Or should I just kill him off for sure?
