Family History ∙
Family ∙ Mother: Silverspots, Father: Tawnyspot- once a loner
Birthplace ∙ Sky Clan nursery
Dapplekit was born to a Sky Clan cat and a previous loner. Born into Sky Clan, she was instantly sure of her destiny. She longed to become a medicine cat. Every day, since she opened her eyes, Dapplekit would watch the previous medicine cat at work. As soon as she could take her first wobbly steps, Dapplekit was up and helping the medicine cat. Yet she mostly got under her elders paw's.
As Dapplekit grew older, she helped out in her clan more and more. She was never one to be hailing the apprentices to teach her battle moves, Dapplekit was much happier to be in the medicine den. She yearned for the day that she could become an apprentice, a medicine cat apprentice. Into her fifth moon, every cat was sure that she would become the medicine cat apprentice. And that she did.
After moons of training, Dapplepaw gained her true name, Dapplemist She always remembers her naming with total accuracy.
"Dapplepaw, do you promise to uphold the ways of a medicine cat, to stand apart from the rivalry between Clan and Clan, and to protect all cats equally, even at the cost of your life?"
"Then by the powers of Starclan I give you your true name as a medicine cat. Dapplepaw, from this moment you will be known as Dapplemist."
Shortly after Dapplemist had finally gained her medicine cat name, her parents died. Her father died in a bought of greencough. THe greencough was brought on by an infected piece of prey. Then her mother died protecting the clan from a rat attack. She partially blames herself for her parents deaths'. Dapplemist was unable to save either of her parents. Unable to prevent them from joining StarClan. Her mentor insisted that it was more of her own fault. Not Dapplemist's.Sample
Silent as shadows, cats padded into the Sky Clan camp. The latest patrol had returned, in terrible condition. Heads down, and tails trailing in the dust, the cats made their way through the falling darkness. The last cats to enter camp carried a sad, limp form.
Dapplemist poked her head out of the medicine cat den, sensing somthing was awry. Seeing the pitiful looking cat, she grabbed a mouthful of leaves and rushed out of her den in a flurry of herbs. Lately, there had been trouble with rats, but no cat thought it was this serious.
Upon reaching the bedraggled form, Dapplmist sniffed it, checking for wounds. The two warriors had placed her on a smooth patch of ground. A gentle sigh escaped the silver she cat as she struggled to lift her head.
"No Mother," Dapplemist gently pushed her down. "You have fought your battle, now let me help with your wounds."
"No," the silver cat replied, with a determined note in her voice. She was struggling for breath. Her chest heaved. "You will not waste those on me. Save those precious herbs for a cat who needs them."
"But Mother, Silverspots..." Dapplemist's voice trailed off. "You need these as much as any other cat." Her paw trailed to the pile of Marigold at her side.
With great effort, Silverspots pushed her daughter's paw away. "I said," her eyes locked with those of her daughters, "save them for a cat who truly needs them." Her gaze faltered.
Both cats sat, eyes locked. Dapplemist could sit forever, cradled in those pools of green. Flinching, she realized what her mother meant. "Oh no...." She had already lost one of her parents, how could she loose another this soon. Star Clan forbid that she loose her mother too.
"Do not weep, little one. I will see you in your dreams." With that she mewed wistfully, "Tawnyspot, is that you?" She then fell limp, the heat draining out of her body. Tawnyspot was Dapplemist's father. He had left the realm of the living for the Star Clan hunting grounds only three moons before. Now he had come to fetch Silverspots. To take her to Star Clan.
Burying her nose in her mother's pelt, Dapplemist felt her eyes begin to water. Death. That was the aroma that filled her nose. Her mother's scent was becoming engulfed be the smell of death and blood.
No, she thought fiercely to herself. There were other cats to attend to, she couldn't be weak and fail them. There are living cats Dapplemist thought with a pang. With that, she rose, stiff legged. To fail her clan would be an insult to her mother's memory. Cats started to emerge from their dens.
Wailing, a queen ran to her mate, nuzzling her muzzle into his fur. That one will make it. Dapplemist thought to herself. The strong looking tom nuzzled his mate back reassuringly.
Tonight she would dream of Star Clan. Then she would see her mother and father together again, happy. With her heart lightened by the thought, Dapplemist stalked off to care for her clanmates. We're going to need plenty of Burdock root for all these rat bites," she thought to herself.
Since Dapplemist visits her ancestors regularly, do you think I can RP them. Not necessarily make a Bio for them and all that stuff, but can I just write what they say and do? There's only one Star Clan cat (I think) and I'm not sure if they're even active anymore...Contract
