|Warrior of WindClan
Living at the age of 29 Moons (2.2 Years)
|A stocky red classic tabby bicolor tom with copper eyes.
Cloudflare is a broad tomcat, built stocky with a wide, muscular chest. His thick legs are made less for bounding and more for building momentum in his stride. His circular face is supported by a solid neck and taut shoulders and set with a pair of vibrant copper eyes. His short haired coat is white, but the back of his neck, ears, forehead, shoulders, back and tail are bright ginger in a classic, blotched tabby pattern.
Cloudflare is generally a laid-back, confident sort of tomcat. While normally outspoken and self assured, he does have moments of reflection where he can become morose and removed from his clanmates, but those moments are becoming fewer and farther between. Little can distract him from providing for his clan and upholding the warrior code to the best of his ability. Integrity and honesty means a lot to Cloudflare. Towards the spiteful or dishonest, Cloudflare is distrustful and has a hard time learning to forgive, mostly instilled into him by his dame. In his comfort zone, he is a flirtacious tom, adopting his mentor’s witty and outgoing personality where persuasion and patience has become his weapon of choice. Rarely will Cloudflare be moved to anger, his temper being more petty and sarcastic rather than explosive, another trait hammered into him as a kit. Cloudflare is generally intuitive and has learned to trust himself through the tutelage of his mentor, acting on intuition when he feels its necessary – even if that means questioning what others might say or think if he believes it to be for the good of the clan. He possesses a fierce pride in his Windclan heritage, yet that fierceness is smoothed over by a thoughtfulness over their existence under Starclan’s eye and within the forest they live in.
Mistystep and Emberback’s relationship was based solely on convivence which begun as a mutual respect between them. Cloudflare, born on a bitterly cold morning, was born as Cloudkit along with a stillborn she-kit after a long, harsh leaf bare. His dame, Mistystep, fussed over him – keeping him close and warm between suckling and the occasional guest to the nursery. While strict and overbearing, she was his lifeline and his playmate. Where he could have developed into a playful, bouncy kit, her temper and high expectation she had for him molded his kittenhood into a more careful, thoughtful one as he grew older.
Approaching his apprentice hood brought a newfound excitement, all too eager to leave the nursery behind. Cloudkit, in his moments of escape, got to know many of the cats in his clan, including a witty, friendly she-cat by the name of Featherflight. The older she-cat took an interest in the near apprentice, and by his apprentice ceremony, Featherflight had been named his mentor. Finally free from the stifling atmosphere of the nursery, Cloudpaw was free to express himself, and his mentor was the first cat to coax him out of his shell. Cloudpaw proved to be an inquisitive and quick study. And while he patiently took to his oral lectures, Cloudpaw was most excited to prove himself out hunting, and was eager for a skirmish be it with a weasel or a rival clan cat should they cross his clan. His confidence blossomed under Featherflight’s tutelage, and learned to trust his instincts. Reckless decisions came few and far between, but Cloudpaw learned from his mistakes as disappointing his mentor was one of the worst feelings imaginable. It reminded him of his nursery moons trying to gain the approval of his dame. Needless to say, any mistakes were corrected by his mentor with a firmness that didn’t last – Featherflight was quick to forgive.
Cloudpaw was named Cloudflare at his warrior ceremony under the proud gaze of his mentor. A name suggested for the personal growth and sparking flare of his newfound self and fierce dedication to his clan, nearly a 180 degree transformation from the reserved, stifled kit he used to be. During his vigil he sat, quietly contemplating his journey so far. Of what it meant to be a part of his clan. He thought about his mother, and while he generally avoided her around camp, he secretly appreciated her for the hardship she brought, an obstacle to overcome. He had come so far and yet his life was only beginning. Cloudflare’s career as a warrior was marked by steady patrols, hunting to provide for his clan, and the occasional border confrontation or scent of a passing predator. He relished in the chance to throw his weight around, and had grown into a considerable tomcat. Yet even the most fit and prepared can succumb to the harshness of leaf bare. Cloudflare saw many of the cats he knew fall to starvation and general malaise of the cold. It was during one of those cold days that he sprung after a skinny hare, chasing the creature until it turned a sharp corner and escaped. Cloudflare, meanwhile, could not stop fast enough and tumbled down a shallow rocky outcrop disguised by the snow, causing him an extended trip to the medicine cats den for a sprain in his back right leg. During this time spent in the den, he was forced into the company of his dame, Mistystep, who had taken to sickness. At first they had little to say to one another, but only until Cloudflare spoke up did they finally find some common ground. The burden of his anxieties slowly ebbed as his dame accepted her fate and joined Starclan shortly after. Once Cloudflare was fit to leave, he slowly worked up his muscles and to this day continues to stretch and strives to be at his peak, wary of slippery hares in the dead of leaf-bare.
