NAME!AGE! Ten moons.
Minnowkit - Minnowpaw
RANK! Medicine Cat Apprentice
Minnowpaw is a long-furred, fluffy silver she-cat with soft green eyes.
Minnowpaw has her mother's body and fur, but she has her father's eyes (Before being blinded). Her tail is long, with fur flowing out like a feather. Her chest and paws are lighter than the rest of her coat, while her face is darker. She's small, but lean; built like a warrior apprentice even though she isn't one. Her eyes are a soft teal, leaning more on the green side. Judging by the size of her paws, she's going to go through a growth spurt before she's matured.
Minnowpaw is fiery and rebellious; most cats in WindClan describe her as "the medicine cat with a warrior's heart," or more simply, "a warrior at heart." She's prone to teasing cats for injuries that could have been avoided easily, though she respects cats who were injured in battle and will ask questions about it to the point of being slightly annoying. When the medicine den is empty, Minnowpaw can be found in the territory hunting rabbits, which she's quite talented at. Robbed of her opportunity to fight, she finds time to bring food to the queens and elders as often as she can, even when they aren't particularly hungry. Minnowpaw respects the deputy and leader, though she occasionally expresses irritation that she was never given a chance to strive to become leader one day.
Minnowpaw has been teased for her name, saying that she'd fit in more as a RiverClan cat. She doesn't like being compared to "those stupid fish faces," and will grow irritable and snappish for about half a day after being teased. As she's grown older, she often expresses desire for a mate and more bitterness that she can never have one. Fortunately for the Clan, she's loyal to the Warrior Code and has a huge fear of disappointing or angering StarClan. She loves her family, but the Clan comes first. Though her personality is annoying, sometimes hateful, and teasing, she really is a good cat, and will do her best as the WindClan medicine cat.
Minnowpaw was born to two full-blooded WindClan cats, Beetlewing and Bluestream, along with her sister Flintpaw. Her father was loyal and loving, and her mother was eager for the two to become the best warriors they could be, teaching them the warrior code and how to hunt even before they were named apprentices. Minnowpaw was the more outgoing of the two, going out to explore the camp and eavesdrop on warriors and elders exchanging war stories as soon as she was allowed to leave the nursery. She was always irritated with her sister for being so shy and reserved, but Minnowpaw did love her. It was when Minnowpaw was eavesdropping at the edge of the warrior's den that she overheard some mean comments about her father and his appearance. She had never noticed that he was different in any way, but after that, she always noticed the scars that showed when he visited, though she still didn't think he was ugly. In fact, it made her admire him more.
Bluestream and Beetlewing were so proud when their kits were named apprentices, and Minnowpaw was excited to make her own war stories and maybe even save the Clan one day from some terrible prophecy. She was excellent in training, but a moon later, Batflight made an announcement; StarClan had called Minnowpaw to become a Medicine Cat apprentice. A few cats expressed disappointment that the apprentice with so much potential was to become a medicine cat, but no cat was as disappointed as Minnowpaw herself. The moment her name was mentioned as the new medicine cat apprentice, her voice was the loudest in the outcry. However, she was not one to go against StarClan, and went along with it. The Clan got over it pretty quickly, although Minnowpaw still harbors a grudge. Nonetheless, she respects Batflight and does her best to learn the medicine cat trade.
"It's so boooooring," Minnowpaw cried out, rolling on her back. Batflight had gone out to pick some herbs, leaving her alone to look after the medicine cat den. To Minnowpaw, there was nothing to do, even though the medicine storage needed to be sorted and she could always check up on the queens in the nursery. "Whyyyy did I agree to this?" Minnowpaw purposefully put a whine in her voice, hoping StarClan would hear and maybe make her an apprentice again, even though she knew that it wasn't going to happen. She was chosen for a reason, no matter how stupid the reason was. Why hadn't Flintpaw been named medicine cat apprentice? She was quiet and reserved and hated training to be a warrior! Minnowpaw rolled back over on her stomach, laying her head on her paws with an irritated grunt. Cats were walking around camp, grabbing fresh-kill from the pile and generally having a good time. Stupid other cats. Stupid StarClan, Minnowpaw thought to herself. When's Batflight coming back? At least when Batflight was around, Minnowpaw could talk to her mentor. "Soooooo boooooring."
