What if the twolegs never destroyed the warrior's old forest? What if they were left to live their lives in peace after Scourge? Years have passed since the threat of Scourge. New generations of warriors are made, generations pass quietly and peacefully. The strong reign of Firestar has long since passed on as has his predecessor. All the warriors that lived under them have entered the realm of Starclan, leaving their decadents to care for their beloved clans. A new threat has entered the forest in the form of their very environment. A storm sweeps through all of the clans, food becomes scarce after the storm finally subsides. The struggle for survival has begun, and all four clans are at each other's throats. And things only get worse as apprentices from all clans are found dead on their borders, their killer unknown. It's a scent they've never spelled before, feline most certainly yet off. What was this creature? Who was it, and more importantly why was it just killing apprentices? Fear and hunger start to take it's toll on the clans. Will they survive another moon without an all out battle? Rules 1. Common Roleplay Rules apply here.

He's also got a white muzzle like his father, but his mother's beautiful amber eyes. He's got more of his mother's sleek build than his father's strong body, but he shares his father's large feet. Personality He's a rather calm yet charming young apprentice. He's always curious, investigates everything. Being as energetic as he is he tends to overlook many things in his haste. But e's a thinker, he finds solutions for things most others would not. Loyal to the core, he's got a deep seeded hatred for code breakers. His clan means the world to him. However, so does justice and fairness. He's witty and often times his sarcasm gets him into trouble. Extra (anything important about the character I didn't add here): N/A (for now) History: He's the first and only son of Quailfeather and Cougarcreek. His mother died after getting hit by a monster during one of her walks, he was nursed by other queens. His father is very protective of him thanks to the loss of his mother. He's somehow related to Bramblestar and Tawneypelt, but he doesn't know how. Just that his father talks about it all the time.

He's very large in build, powerful muscles and sharp claws. He's got a few scars all around him. Personality Cougarcreek is a very serious warrior, many speculate whether or not this jaded cat has any sense of humour. He struggles to show affection to his son, and seems almost keen to push the young apprentice farther and farther in his training. Some think he expects too much from the warriors, but he's got a reason for whatever he does. However, he's very protective of his son and will go through anything to save him. He was denied being a mentor to Hazelpaw because of his protectiveness, instead he was given to his leader Dapplestar. Extra (anything important about the character I didn't add here): N/A History: He was born to Dovepelt and Swiftclaw. Both of his parents were kind of distant, Dovepelt having broken up with her mate and their father Swiftclaw after losing passion for them. Swiftclaw eventually left the clan, turned into a rouge after swearing that he couldn't be around Dovepelt. She raised the two and watched them become apprentices alone. Cougarcreek always felt a bit abandoned by their father and there's a serious hatred for the mention of him. He met Quailfeather as apprentices, the two becoming best friends quickly. He, his brother and Quailfeather spent their days as young cats hunting and training together. They earned their warrior names the same night after a scuffle with Thunderclan, having proven their fairness and mercy. Quailfeather and Cougarcreek became mates a years after they became warriors, though cats had already thought that they were when they received their names. They only made it official after getting stuck together in an old badger den during a nasty storm. However, they didn't have kits immediately. Instead they continued their warrior careers together, it was when Foxtail retired after breaking her back leg that Cougarcreek was named the deputy. Previously he's mentored at least six warriors and proven himself a natural leader. When he was told that he would be a father, Cougarcreek began to furiously re-enforce the nursery. Quailfeather managed to calm her worried mate. Moons passed and there were certain complications with Quailfeather's pregnancy. She gave birth to four kits, but out of the four only one was alive. Hazelkit became the apple in his mother's eyes, she almost never strayed except for the walks she would take. One day, she never came back. It was found later that Quailfeather had been struck by a monster. Cougarcreek never recovered from the loss of his best friend and mate, some say that was what jaded him.
