rainstar of shadowclan
rainkit - rainpaw - rainsky
rainstar is a 55 moon old leader and a silver and tawny spotted she-cat with dark blue eyes. she is called rain for the silvery base of her pelt, and sky for her ambitious nature.

Rainstar is short compared to her clanmates, bearing graceful, but comparatively stocky limbs and a broad back and shoulders, twined tight with thick muscle under her dense, short fur. The base color of her pelt is a creamy silver hue, warmer in the summer, though her markings are tawny in color rather than the usual grey and are interspersed with several distinctive rosettes across her sides, turning into barring down her legs and along her tail, neck and face. She's build broad-shouldered and strong, muscular under her dense, short fur. Her limbs are average in length and end with relatively small, neat paws armed with sharp, curved claws. Her tail is long, dense-furred and sturdy, and it bushes to a startling size when she’s upset or angry. Its sweeping length is reminiscent of her father, though it lacks the fur length he once sported. Her broad face is rounded, with a pink nose and dark blue eyes. Her ears are small, round-tipped, and lightly insulated with snow-white fur, the edges of which are tattered with nicks and scars. Tawny fur tinges the bridge of her nose up to the corners of her eyes, like her face has been smudged with rust. The dense fur of her pelt is criscrossed with silvery scars, memories of past battles, though none are particularly significant, mostly invisible under fur that has long regrown.
↑ quick-witted, brave, perceptive

Those who know Rainstar would claim her cleverness and quickness of wit are her most notable features. She is silver-tongued, quick to fire back with cutting remarks or witty jokes, and it seems as though the wheels are always turning in her head to take stock of the world around her. She finds her intelligence best used in battle, where she can process even the fastest moving situations and rarely finds herself overwhelmed or confused. She is known best for using her brain first and her heart second, no matter what, even at occasional detriment to herself.

Of bravery, Rainstar has it in spades. She is nearly undeterred, willing to step forth into any situation regardless of its potential for danger. That is not to say that she is fearless, as fear is natural, and risk is terrifying. Rainstar does fear danger, but her fear is not enough to dissuade her from doing what she believes to be necessary. She has a strong mind and stronger will, and her pawsteps will not falter in the face of intimidation.

Rainstar is a cat that never misses details. Her augur shines through in her strongest positive trait, that of her vigilance and perceptiveness. in some ways she can be obsessive over the minutae, mind always working to find the inner meaning of all that's around her, and from time to time this can lead her in the wrong direction. for the most part, however, she exerts her ability to think a few steps ahead of her peers, cunning in finding the best route to ensure the survival of her clan even at the expense of morality and justice.

- outspoken, ambitious

When Rainstar has a thought in her head, she is more likely to speak it than to keep it to herself. Sometimes this is a positive thing: she has helpful input and offers herself as an eager assistant at meetings and in the field as a warrior, putting her mind to the test always and trying to help her Clanmates wherever she can with any problems they may have. But her input is not always desired, and Rainstar at times will butt in where she is not wanted, causing irritation between herself and her fellows. She isn't trying to be an annoyance or speak over others, she simply has difficulty filtering her thoughts before she speaks them. Developing the ability to hold her tongue when it's needed would assist her greatly in the future.

Ambition is definitely Rainstar's game. If she wants it, she will do her best to achieve it. She wants to be the greatest leader and thus she has put every ounce of her strength, intellect, and focus into making that desire a reality for herself. Her single-minded desire to succeed could be her downfall as much as her victory, and her future decisionmaking is all that will decide which way it will go. Whether she sinks to new lows or rises to great heights to reach her achievements is yet to be seen. most often, rainstar tends to lean towards a more aggressive ambition, often at odds with her rival leaders and sometimes her fellow pillars of shadowclan, mostly in regards to her cousin hickoryleaf.

↓ abrasive, hidebound, obsessive

Rainstar is known for being sharp-tongued and sassy, and to some extent, can even be abrasive around certain cats that can't take her more deprecating sense of humor. She is quite harsh and critical of others if she finds them to be foolish or lazy, and despite the maturity of leadership, her most common qualm is with the youth, as though she still has the mentality of a young warrior. She reins in her attitude around older warriors and elders, but to many she can be considered insufferable, especially combined with her tendency to be outspoken; the combination would make many who don't know her believe that she thinks she's better than others. this interpretation may or may not be accurate.

The warrior code is law for all cats, and for Rainstar, that is the case more than anything. In fact, her need to stick to the warrior code is so important to her that it would cause a rift with anyone around her, tying her paws and giving her no choice but to do what is required of her. however, she is quite talented at twisting the code to fit her desires, waiting until she has the proper level of righteous indignation to act excessively and often violently. this makes her a difficult leader to work with, one that pretends to be held rigidly to goodness while all the while searching for loopholes that allow her to act as she pleases with the backing of the warrior code to support her. for example, assisting other clans appears a purely kind venture, but will only occur if it benefits her in some way sooner or later.

Obsessiveness is a blessing for productivity but a curse for mental sanity, and that's a truth that Rainstar knows all too well. She takes even the smallest things far too seriously, and worries over them until she feels like she's losing her mind. A serial overthinker, Rainstar will lose herself in her distress over succeeding or failing, or completing all of her duties, or taking care of her Clan, until some cat steps in and distracts her from her internal panic. At times, Rainstar simply cannot see the forest for the trees, too concerned over the small details to see the big picture.

outline:

-6 moons: looking back, it seems rainstar's future was already laid out for her before she was born. her parents are two well-loved warriors, crowfoot and spottedfur - their relationship with each other is rocky but they will both go on to be significant figures in her life, albeit somewhat separately from one another. she is related to hornetstar and his mother, russetstar, through her spottedfur; she is also connected to emberstar through her father, who is siblings with his mate, sunfur. in shadowclan blood is everything, and once the clan was made aware of spottedfur's pregnancy they knew her litter would be special.

0-6 moons: rainkit is born a single kit in leafbare, under the hawk augur - same as her father. she is named rain for what at the time was a purely silvery coat, kittenfluff spotted with grey. as she grows older her full colors come through, expressing the clear tawny rosetting that her family is known for. as a young she-cat going into apprenticehood she is intense and impossible to restrain, often disregarding her parents' instructions and escaping camp on several occasions. when she is four moons old her father becomes deputy of shadowclan, ensuring a secure future for her: at her sixth moon, emberstar chooses her to be his apprentice, as it is traditional within shadowclan for the leader to mentor his deputy's kit.

6-12 moons: under emberstar's mentorship rainpaw learns discipline - her emotions are still rash and often control her decisions, but she comes to respect the warrior code, struggling less with the prospect of being restrained and becoming obsessive about sticking close to starclan's wishes. she and emberstar are close, sharing an almost fatherly bond as time passes. a fox begins to trouble the clan, several cats falling prey to its jaws - on her eleventh moon, near the end of her apprenticeship, emberstar follows them. she struggles to cope with the loss of her mentor as her father ascends to leadership, naming her rainsky for her ambition and thus the lofty expectations he saw of her future. it is a heavy burden for a new warrior to bear, but she bears it in silence, sitting her vigil outside camp.

12-24 moons: rainsky throws herself entirely into warriorhood, choosing to grieve by action; she proves herself a capable warrior, occasionally outpacing her fellows. she regularly chafes with her father, despite their formerly civil relationship, and for several moons it seems they despise each other as she stays close to her mother and avoids interacting with him one-on-one. she is embittered by the loss of her mentor, unwilling to accept her father taking on emberstar's role, but over time as her sadness wanes so does her anger. windclan's camp is ravaged by badgers; maplestar travels by herself across the forest to request crowstar's assistance in person, and he agrees, knowing that this would indebt windclan to shadowclan. he sends rainsky, among other warriors, to help windclan rebuild. she is stationed there for a moon, and becomes somewhat friendly with the windclan warrior privetfur. upon returning to shadowclan the dead bond with her father is quickly revived in the moons leading up to his deputy, birchwhisker's death at the mercy of rats. as the brown tabby she-cat lies struggling in the medicine cat den, crowstar gives rainstar her first apprentice in duskpaw, a young tom with a fierce personality that challenges her own. the move is transparent, a quick bid to ensure his daughter is a viable deputy in the event that he loses his own - and sure enough, once birchwhisker dies, he appoints rainsky as his deputy despite her inexperience. the move is questioned by few, the newest in a long line of nepotism that shadowclan has been long familiar with. by her twenty-fourth moon duskpaw becomes dusktail.

25-36 moons: crowstar begins to show illness, as do many other cats in camp. gorsethroat, already bogged down with the struggle of wyrdwalking and the brightmire, struggles to identify their illness, one that has never been seen in shadowclan before. quillfrost travels to shadowclan to request permission to access the brightmire, a petition that crowstar unwillingly agrees to, ensuring whitestar's survival and riverclan's debt. at the half moon gorsethroat convenes with other medicine cats in a desperate attempt to find an explanation for the illnesses and learns from ivytail of windclan that they are all suffering from yellowcough, the cure of which only grows on the moor. rainsky heads a patrol to request assistance from maplestar, who gladly grants it after the kindness crowstar showed her clan in regards to the badgers - she greets rainsky warmly and sends her home with more than enough lungwort to spare, but when she returns, crowstar has already lost a life. the clan is unaware of the fact that their leader was only given two, after a vague and difficult dream at the moonstone in which he could only vaguely hear the words of his ancestors. she is afraid she's lost her father for good, but after the lungwort treatment he recovers, retaining his final life much to her relief.

37-48 moons: owlflight of thunderclan defects to shadowclan after falling pregnant by a shadowclan warrior. the clan needs fresh blood and future warriors and so crowstar permits her to stay, much to rainsky's indignation. this topic drives a wedge between them in the final moons of her father's life, where crowstar's survival proves to be only temporarily prolonged. in a battle with thunderclan he loses his last life, cementing hatred of the clan in rainsky's eyes. she travels to the moonstone with gorsethroat, visited by five formerly shadowclan cats: crowstar; her grandfather hornetstar, that died well before her birth; russetstar, whom hornetstar had served as deputy under and whose reputation was fierce and well-respected; runningnose, who had been medicine cat when the infamous brokenstar ruled; and lastly, emberstar, her beloved mentor. their time with her is brief but she leaves the moonstone with five lives and a solid conviction in starclan, after moons of struggling with the quick loss of crowstar thanks to their weak bond with the stars. she selects cootstorm as her deputy upon her return.

49-55 moons: owlflight's kits, viperkit and adderkit, are of apprenticing age. distrusting the half-clan cats, she takes adderpaw as her own apprentice. viewing him coldly, she proves to be impossible to please as a mentor, and they often clash. though his sister fares better within the clan, adderpaw grows tired of trying to prove himself to the clan he was born into and decides to defect to thunderclan. angered by the disloyalty, rainstar feels her suspicions were confirmed, telling him never to return if he wanted to keep his pelt on his bones. she grows close with driftwing, and soon she falls pregnant - upon discovering this the tom flees the clan, claiming to be on a trek to find the new moonstone after the topic was raised at the last gathering. she is not fooled. she gives birth to four kits, one of which stillborn, the three remaining named swankit, lizardkit, and finchkit. they all die before leafbare is over. on a culling patrol sent to carrionplace, cootstorm is fatally wounded by rats and does not survive the journey back to camp. she grieves her deputy, of whom she was always fond, still blinded by the loss of her kits. she chooses cedarclaw as her new deputy as whispers come across the border of treachery from rival clans. rooktalon comes to petition for the right to visit the brightmire with mothstar, but, disdainful of the she-cat's erratic behavior, rainstar declines on the assumption that the windclan leader would likely die. privetfur visits her not long later to inform her that this is not the case, and that windclan is planning to force their way in. ---
