Briarstream
A Player Character played by Ames

Affiliation
Medicine Cat of ShadowClan
Vitals
A Female cat by Falconeye out of Pending Dame.
Living At the age of 29 Moons (2.2 Years)
Appearance
 
Short Descrpition: A chocolate tortoishel she-cat with a gray right eye and no left eye
Long Descrpition:

Briarstream is a chocolate tortoiseshell cat with gray eyes. Or eye to be more specific, as her other one is currently missing due to a fox attack during her apprentice years. She is a very lean cat, and thus finds it very easy to get in and out of tight places, although her coordination does not aid her in this.

Personality
 
 

Briarstream is a bit of a snappy cat, easily annoyed by others. She begrudgingly does her job, and she does it well, but she doesn’t really enjoy it. She feels she was forced into the role, and is forever bound to be a medicine cat. She desperately wants to fall in love, and may be prone to a forbidden romance should the opportunity strike.  Briarstream is also a very wily cat. She is very clever, but very busy minded, as thoughts come and go. She tends to keep her mind focused by keeping busy, either sorting her herbs or going in search of more. She is filled with energy, and can often be found roaming the swamps just to remain active.

History
 
Key Dates:
  • Born in the Moon of Running Prey (2017)
Full History:

Briarstream was born to Falconeye and Ashthorn, alongside her siblings Hazelfern and Poppyshine. She was always competitive with her two sisters, and they played games to see who would be the better warrior. *However, this bliss could not last forever as unfortunate events occurred during kithood. She had snuck out of camp one day, only to have an encounter with a fox. Thankfully Briarkit’s absence had not gone unnoticed, and a warrior arrived just in time to take on the fox and successfully drive it off’ but not before it took Briarkit’s eye. After this incident, Briarkit grew extremely uncoordinated. It was deemed that she could never be a warrior. The leader and medicine cat at the time took pity on her, and assigned her to be the medicine cat’s apprentice, rather than forcing her to the elder’s den. Briar begrudgingly accepted, rather than risk humiliation, but she was very unhappy with the decision. It had been her dream to be a warrior and she blamed StarClan for what happened to her, growing to hate them for what happened rather than realizing it was her own fault.  While Briarstream may not have enjoyed her job, she was actually rather good at it. The healing part anyway. She was quick to memorize the herbs, and quickly treat her patients. However, what she did not have was a strong connection with StarClan, and cats began to resent her for this. While she spoke with them when needed, she did not truly care for what they said, and some cats thought her terrible for this. After all, what kind of a medicine cat didn’t care about their ancestors?  She was not respected as much as an authority figure, and rumor has it might have been removed had it been for the fact that no cat could take her place.

  1. I’ve pulled out the specific problem areas (which are also marked with asterisks in the sheet itself) and explained the issues.

    “Briarstream is also a very wily cat. She is very clever, but her mind cannot seem to allow her to stay in one place.” – This section is not well supported as to why these interpretations should be made, and in accordance has become a power play.

    “However, this bliss could not last forever as unfortunate events occurred shortly after becoming an apprentice” – Just a quick note that you should remember to add both this apprenticeship and her MC apprenticeship separately in the Key Dates list when you set that up.

    ** – This section represents a major issue that stems from CoSC specific lore. That is to say, Medicine Cats in our lore meet as a group. If a cat can’t reach StarClan the rest of the MCs would know about it. And since our ceremony is different (http://children.chosenofstarclan.com/index.php/Info:Clan-Ceremonies link to the old site included here because I haven’t imported out ceremony document yet) and requires the Mentor and Apprentice to meet with StarClan to be approved for ordination prior to the leader granting the name… this would mean she wouldn’t have been able to earn her adult name. It’s okay if her relationship with StarClan isn’t great or to have worsened to the point of her being unable to reach them, but to have been made a medicine cat without being able to reach them is impossible here.

    “However, what she could not do was speak to StarClan, and cats began to resent her for this. After all, what kind of a medicine cat didn’t speak with StarClan? She was not respected as much as an authority figure, and rumor has it might have been removed had it been for the fact that no cat could take her place.” – See previous.
