thin, dark and long-tailed, quillfrost is a rather small cat in both size and build; he stands just below average compared to his bulkier clanmates, and his body is lithe, almost frail. his pelt is an ashen grey hue, marked in soft bars of smoky black that is densest around his extremities. his tail is long, the fur plumed but thin. usually his pelt is a mess, cowlicks sticking up like downy tufts and herb dust tangled in his fur. pale skin shows through his shoulder in the form of long clawed scars, and on his sides the fur is thinned slightly as it struggles to grow again over old wounds.

his face is his most distinctive feature, triangular in shape with sharp, proud cheekbones and tall, tufted ears, one notched deeply in the side. his eyes are pale, faintly blue, and always unfocused - the pupils are moonlike in color, clouded with cataracts. more than anything the tom visibly shows his age, skinny and gaunt and scarred. he walks with a light limp, which worsens when the weather is cold or wet. as he's aged his pelt has begun to bleach, a much paler hue than in his prime.

quillfrost comes across, at first, as confused and muddled. he is prone to being distracted by his surroundings, always looking for signs from starclan in the patterns of the birds around riverclan's territory; he mutters to himself often, and gazes off into the distance as though remembering something far away. therefore it is hard for younger cats to take him seriously, and he's often teased by the apprentices for being frail looking and fishbrained. he doesn't appear to notice. and yet, the older cats of the clan do not echo these jokes. they seem to understand that there's something about quillfrost that is not to be jested about.

beneath the distant exterior is a cat of great shrewdness. nothing escapes his sharp eye - not literally, of course, being that he's blind. he is attentive of his surroundings and the behavior of his fellows. he views the world around him like a puzzle, and every observation like a piece of it. he must carefully puzzle it all together until he has the full picture.

politically intelligent and a clever tactician, quillfrost is warrior minded, an unusual trait for a medicine cat. he cares little for helping cats of other clans, his loyalty primarily to riverclan unless it's beneficial in some way for himself or his clan. he can barter with the best of them, sort out strategic advantages...and his morals, though generally sound, are much darker than one would expect of a medicine cat.

✥ PRE-BIRTH — quilltail was a warrior every clan cat respected. the oldest senior warrior of the clans, she'd lived through many seasons of struggle; she was wise and thought several pawsteps ahead of her clanmates. in the end, it was her age that failed her. a battle with thunderclan ended with her dead on the shore of the river, the younger warrior having struck too close and too hard for her frailer body to withstand. her death was grieved by every cat, though perhaps the most by one of her daughters, featherheart. featherheart was from her mother's third litter, the only remaining as her first littermate was stillborn and the second, silverfoot, had died of greencough on the first leafbare of his warriorhood. she was, at the time of quilltail's death, pregnant by a tom by the name of otterclaw - they barely have a relationship, and he is never in his kits' lives past siring them in the first place.

✥ 0-5 MOONS — a week or so after quilltail's death, featherheart gave birth to four healthy kittens: two toms and two she-kits. among her kittens there was a single solid black kit, sharing the black pelt of quilltail, and so she named him quillkit in honor of her. his siblings took the names reedkit, shellkit, and ternkit. to his parents' surprise, as the moons progressed, that black kit turned out not to be black after all. gradually, parts of his pelt began to lighten, leaving him with soft-edged smoky bars over softly silver fur. as a kit he was unlike his siblings, who often play-fought and got into mischief as kittens often do. whenever quillkit tried to join them, his small size was a hindrance, and so he seemed to prefer playing by himself. he showed a particular fascination with birds from the start, and often watched them as they flew over the camp or settled on the river nearby.

✥ 6-12 MOONS — quillpaw, ternpaw, reedpaw, and shellpaw are given their mentors. featherheart and otterclaw are delighted when quillpaw is selected to be the apprentice of the deputy, slatefang. though his siblings ribbed him jealously over the privilege, they were proud of their brother. as an apprentice, however, quillpaw struggles. he does not easily grasp fighting or hunting techniques, and his thoughts are often elsewhere, watching the birds or getting lost in his thoughts. by the first moon of his apprenticeship slatefang tires of him, and often sends him to help the medicine cat, graycloud, rather than bother with training. it is here where he thrived, surprisingly: his small, nimble paws were perfect for sorting herbs, and he showed an immediate ability to remember their appearances, scents, and usages. with this in mind, graycloud petitioned silverstar to take him as her apprentice, and silverstar agreed. at his third moon, quillpaw begins training to be riverclan's next medicine cat. starclan gives him no time to prepare: his first duties are to assist graycloud in treating two cats: erminepaw, brought to riverclan after breaking his jaw as graycloud had experience in treating the injury; and whitekit, a victim of whitecough, who should have been an apprentice if not for her illness. where quillpaw never liked erminepaw and was often unnecessarily aggressive in the treatment of the snooty tomcat, he begins to bond with whitekit as he helps to beat off her whitecough and keep her strength up, a progression of events that would tie them together for their entire lives. whitekit recovers, and at last is named whitepaw, mentored by larkjaw.

✥ 13-18 MOONS — quillpaw's siblings are named ternfeather, reedwhisker, and shellheart. he keeps his friendship with whitepaw, who is named whitewater four moons after his littermates receive their full names. quillpaw is quite attached to his mentor; her gentle wisdom seems to calm his eccentric behavior, and keep him reined in whenever he gets ahead of himself. they work as a very efficient team. when featherheart dies of greencough, his attachment to graycloud becomes ever stronger, and she becomes a mother figure of sorts in his life. by his eighteenth moon, he is at last given his full medicine cat name: quillfrost, for the pale barring in his coat and his reserved, introverted nature.

✥ 19-30 MOONS — quillfrost becomes certain that he is able to read starclan's messages in the flight patterns of the birds that cross riverclan territory. other cats mock the prospect, but graycloud is intrigued, and encourages her apprentice to share with her every sign he sees. for the most part they are banal: he interprets that riverclan would have sufficient prey that moon, or that the weather would be stormy. he himself begins to lose confidence in the true importance of what he's seeing, certain that he'd be doomed to interpret the weather forever. his sister, reedwhisker, becomes deputy under linnetstar, and he is proud of her. one moon, while herb picking near the gorge, he happened a glance down into the tumbling waves and saw a bird's corpse, floating in the water. it was a reed warbler, often seen searching for food in the reed-beds near camp. immediately, a sense of horror filled him - he was sure that what he saw meant something, but knew nothing of what it could be. graycloud told him that its message would come true in time, and if it did, he would know for certain that starclan was speaking to him. at his 30th moon, he is called upon to treat whitewater for the second time, after she drinks bad water and miscarries as a result.

✥ 31-40 MOONS — three moons after what he witnessed at the gorge, its prophecy came true. a fight, on a patrol led by reedwhisker and joined by whitewater and larkthistle, breaks out with a windclan patrol caught too close to the border. what was once foul insults quickly turned to bloodshed as both patrols met fang to claw; reedwhisker, fighting viciously with brightnose, the deputy of windclan, tumbled over the edge of the gorge. the two were so tightly interlocked that neither could save themselves, and both perished in the churning water below. thus the message of the reed warbler finally made sense. the clan grieves her, and linnetstar selects whitewater as his new deputy. a moon later, dawnfeather dies suddenly and without explanation, leaving her pregnant daughter larkthistle behind; quillfrost sees another omen in the death of the she-cat, but after being so badly rattled by his sister's death and the sign leading up to it, he assumes he's merely being reactionary, and doesn't tell his mentor.

✥ 41-50 MOONS — larkthistle gives birth to a single kit without incident, reassuring quillfrost that the fear was all in his head, though he can't help but keep a close eye on the family for fear of the worst. graycloud catches greencough and successfully fights it off, though her age combined with the recent ailment leaves her weak. their leader is not so lucky, however, and linnetstar loses his final 4 lives to greencough, leaving whitewater as the new leader of riverclan. quillfrost spends as much time tending to graycloud as he does his usual duties, fretting over her like a queen. graycloud's difficulties distract him from his worry over larkthistle's kit, who becomes snowpaw, apprenticed to whitestar. his initial gut feeling did not betray him, however, and she comes down with a terrible illness that causes her to cough blood; graycloud has seen the illness before, and diagnoses her with redcough. she dies a moon later, after a great deal of suffering. quillfrost is devastated, left feeling as though he'd failed her.

✥ 51-60 MOONS — quillfrost's vision begins to fail, starting with a blurriness and darkening of the outer corners of his vision that gradually gets worse. graycloud catches a second bout of greencough, and this time is not strong enough to recover; despite quillfrost's best attempts, she succumbs, leaving him the sole medicine cat of his clan. he is immediately faced with a near insurmountable challenge: whitestar begins to show lethargy and disinterest in eating, often dazed and confused. it is no doubt that she has begun to wyrdwalk, the most dreaded illness to plague the forest. (read the oneshot here) terrified to lose his old friend after all of this suffering, he takes the risk of venturing to shadowclan alone to request entry into the brightmire. crowstar, though initially hesitant, accepts his request, and after bringing whitestar to the brightmire, she survives.

✥ 61-75 MOONS— by now, quillfrost is entirely blind. for a long time, he is plagued with no other troubles, focused merely on the menial tasks of a medicine cat as he adjusts to no longer having his mentor beside him to assist him, while finding even the easiest duties much more difficult due to his lack of sight. at his seventy-first moon, whitestar returns to camp waterlogged and barely alive; as quillfrost tends to her, her younger sibling redwing tells the story of how whitestar's former mate, duskfur, attempted to push her in but perished in the water when he too fell over the edge. though the rest of the clan believes it, quillfrost finds the story peculiar somehow, but he does not push. whitestar leaves his den when she has fully recovered from her ordeal.

✥ 76-?? MOONS — quillfrost selects graypaw as his new medicine apprentice, partly due to his need for assistance due to his blindness and partly because his name along reminds the tom of his dearly departed mentor. the two grow quite close. at the harvest moon gathering quillfrost confronts erminestar over his stubbornness in listening to their ancestors, which devolves into a physical altercation that brings the gathering to an immediate end. after rainstar's petition to seek the new moonstone quillfrost leaves for the harvest moon medicine meeting hoping to glean some knowledge from starclan, but the medicine cats are ambushed by foxes in the mothermouth tunnel and graypaw perishes alongside sagewillow and lambpaw of windclan. quillfrost is stricken by his death and struggles to cope with his grief over the loss and his inability to save his apprentice.
