––––– descensus facilis Averno est
MoonClan
THE DESCENT INTO HELL IS EASY – MoonClan is a clan divided in two, Those who live amongst The Clave and those the Clave has deemed as their lessers. Nocturnal by nature MoonClan cats sleep during the day and roam their Shadow world by night. It is because of this that they call themselves Shadowhunters. When they do interact with the other clans these fleet footed cats of the forest and moorland are notably adorned in runic symbols painted all over their pelts, a tradition bestowed upon them by their beloved Moon Goddess, Selene. They live to serve.

The Covenant

Sed lex dura lex. "The Law is hard, but it is the Law."

It is the duty of a Shadowhunter to up hold the law of The Clave, Shadowhunters are required to investigate even the slightest possible rumor of the Covenant being violated.

Shadowhunters must respect all laws both of The Clave and Mundane. This means you must honor and respect the laws of other Clans.

Shadowhunters cannot reveal The Shadow World to Mundanes. Mundanes who wish to join MoonClan must be escorted to and remain in the City of Ash at all times untl they decide to ascend.

Shadowhunters must never commit a crime against a fellow Shadowhunter. These crimes are punished more strictly than crimes against Mundanes or Downworlders because to harm a fellow Shadowhunter is to benifit those who go against Selene and wish to do us harm.

Consorting or Collaberating with our enemies or anyone who wishes to do us harm is considered treason. Shadowhunters found guilty of treason will be subject to The Clave's harshest punishment. The End of their families existence among MoonClan and The Shadow World. The perpitraitor will be immediately be stripped of their marks and rank and he will be made Foresaken and left to go insane until they die. The Family members of the peritratoir are simply stripped of their marks and banished from MoonClan.

While taking a Mundane or Downworlder as a mate is frowned upon by the Clave any offspring resulted from such a pair will be considered of Shadowhunter blood.

A romantic bond between Parabatai is forbidden, there are no exceptions to this rule.

SELENE'S RULE'S

ONE
You shall have no other gods before Selene. Nor shall you worship another god(s).

TWO
You shall not take the name of Selene your, Goddess in vain.

THREE
Keep the Full Moon Sacred. No blood should be split this day.

FOUR
Honor your family and your clan.

FIVE
You shall not murder another outside of ritual ceremony other than in self defense.

SIX
You shall not put an outsider before your clan.

SEVEN
You shall not steal from the mouths of your clanmates. You must always bring back something from a hunt.

EIGHT
You shall not bear false witness against yours or any other clan.

OTHER RULES
Do not speak with a spirit unless it has spoken to you first

Always bow before and after interacting with a spirit
Shadowhunter Academy

The Shadowhunter Academy is a school for Shadowhunters-in-training. Clave born cats and Mundanes who are approved for acension are sent to the Shadowhunter's Academy to learn combat and hunting skills as well as Clave law and culture. Students at the academy spend three- four months here on average. Aside from their tutors no other full fledged Shadowhunters stay at the academy. This is to get young cats used to doing things on their own without their mother and father looking out for them.

The Consul

Ravenstar

Born into the period just before MoonClan’s transformation, Ravenlight grew up in a dynamic environment. This gave him an appreciation for MoonClan’s traditions, but led him to be skeptical of the rules. While rarely willing to outright break them, he does bend them when it suits his or his Clan’s needs. Above all that, the black Maine coon is loud and prone to outbursts, sometimes violent ones, when he gets angered. His demeanor does not even spare the kits, as he treats them much like he would treat any other adult. He means what he says. Sure, he does have sarcasm, but the underlying message would be what he considers to be true. He was a kit during MoonClan’s exile, and he believes that MoonClan needed to be more involved. If they involved themselves with their neighbors, they could make allies. They could protect themselves against the rest of the world. It was perhaps an unpopular view, but he saw it as a necessary burden to ease future ones. Being a Maine coon, he is quite large for a cat. His yellow eyes are the color of the sun at midday.

The Inquisitor


TBD


The Silent Brothers

MAMMON

Mammon, the second prince of hell, the demon of wealth and greed, the jester. He cuts a sharp figure with his sleek black fur, not even a single fur is a different shade. He is a bit on the slim side, though easily towers over most cats with his long legs. His angular face holds a set of captivating eyes. They look like hellfire on earth, burning with passion that only he knows the depths of. Mammon likes to go by many names, they are just one more thing that he likes to collect. He lets very little about his past be known other than he came with The Seven Hells, in search of their missing blood-brother Leviathan. They are all unrelated though have sworn fealty to each other, betrayal is not an option. Mammon while he does like his brothers, he is often annoyed by them and prefers to avoid them to live his life off to the side. He has no desire for power, only the need to collect. Anything and everything he hoards in his secret lair, a grand name for what is just a cave. It is filled with riches, everything except prey because that would simply spoil and ruin the impressiveness of his hoard. Only his brother’s know of his hoard, though they know not of the location. Mammon is after all a cat with an air of intrigue. Of course he lets off a carefully created persona. One that is fun and playful, with just enough danger lurking underneath to draw others in.

SNOWSHOD

Once, Snowshod was afraid of the dark. The light of his goddess Selene was the only comfort to him, and he would only venture out of the camp when she was full and bright. Time and time again, the darkness made him ill. When he tried to sneak out of camp as a young kit, a tunnel collapsed over his head and he nearly died; later, he was kidnapped and held in a cave until he managed to escape. When he was an apprentice on the night of no moon, he was attacked by a rogue raiser who stole away with his left eye; moons later, he was kidnapped again. Only this time, he was stolen during the day, and this time, his future mate Spookbat was at his side. With her support, he learned how to look after himself and found confidence in his own abilities. Snowshod still loves the light of the moon, but he doesn't fear the darkness anymore. Spookbat and Snowshow had a picture perfect life with four happy kittens - Bishop Carvedsnow, Frozenlaughter, Beetleboo, and Hauntedmoon - and though she has since passed on, he is eternally grateful to his mate for being the best part of his life. Snowshod's parents are Farmpelt and Cowflop, but after his mother's early death on the moonless night she gave birth, he was raised by his aunt Hollyfrost and briefly by her lover Shivershroud as he recovered in the medicine cat's den. As a result, he has great respect for the quieter pursuits of clan life, far removed from battles and hunting. In his old age he has retired to become a Silent Brother, trading his voice for his love of history. His family no longer needs him to guide their paws, and he hopes to serve his clan in this new way. Snowshod is an undersized white tom with black patches and one blue right eye.

CLEAVER

SOUTHSPECTOR

A pale grey tabby tom, with gangly limbs and cloudy blue eyes. Almost skeletal in build, Southspectre pads through MoonClan like a ghost, always on the edge of the social circle. He finds interacting with people confusing and inefficient when he's involved, feeling left behind in conversations and confused or irritated as to why people react the way they do. As a result, he usually keeps to himself and deliberately isolates himself from most of his Clanmates. He has very little emotional expression, which can be offputting to some, and has trouble conveying what he really means. Southspectre is driven by his quest for knowledge, to understand the world he lives in and how it works.

The Painted Sisters

Abaddon

Abaddon - Noun with two definitions. It’s described as both a place of destruction and an angel of the abyss. Specifically called the king of an army of locusts. A fitting name for the monster’s sister. One that can stand on equal footing with him. She doesn’t need an introduction, walking so tall and strong that it makes heads turn. Her thick pelt is black as the bottomless pit she’s named after, splashes of white light reaching down through her chest, paws and spots on her nose. Her eyes seem to shine with whatever color she commands of them, normally sitting on a light gold. It doesn’t seem plausible she could, but Abaddon can make you believe she can control anything. From cats, to the world around her, to a horde of locusts, she’s the kind to make you believe in the impossible. Power naturally flocks to her and she craves it, a fitting relationship until her brother became the leader of Moonclan. For now, she can only pull at his strings, which she finds fun in it’s own right. It can’t be clear if she’s scheming some sort of coup or similar, she can barely be read. Expressionless and curt most of the time, she prefers to cut conversations and social interactions short. Not that she really needs to listen to what you have to say, she has an almost inhuman way of guessing what you’ll say. Having learned how to read even the most minute movements, Abby finds the day to day conversation boring yet doesn’t mind playing mind games every now and again. When by herself, she tends to attract insects to her. And soon she’ll have them jumping through hoops for her. So who knows what she will accomplish next.

BEETLEBOOplayed by pao
Bright with laughter, full of wonder, sparked with life. Beetlboo is the son of Spookbat and Snowshod, two warriors who face demons both awake and asleep. His parents are trouble, something he realized when he was but a kit. It wasn't hard. Spookbat would slither into a corner and not come out for days, his father jumped at his own shadow; simple things like that told more than words ever could. For that, he chose to be their laughter. To be their wonder. Their life. Where they could not feel free to live, love, and laugh he would. When his parents weren't themselves this chocolate brown tom would tend to his siblings. While all he could bring them was laughter and fun, it was something to help lighten the days where they're own parents scared them. Even Beetleboo was scared most days, but he pushed it down to show only a smile. His dark yellow eyes would spark at the thought of a game, of his parents' being themselves, at the little things. Games came from things like saying boo at the shadows to chase away fear, from chasing beetles across the den, from finding mother the best leaf they could. Beetleboo understood from a young age that his family was broken, beaten, and in pieces. Yet, he learned to smile through the bad times and the good. To find joy in the little things. It was all a young cat could do in situations like these. So, just say boo to the shadows and smile a little, it makes the days a little brighter.

CURSEDMARK - played by Stark Raving Mad
A long furred golden tom with one gold, eye and one blue eye. He is a half blood born to an unknown MoonClan tom and an unknown rogue she-cat, While initially being raised as MoonClan when he was just an apprentice he was stolen away by rogues and raised as one of them. When he reached the age of a warrior he managed to find his way back home. While he knows he technically belongs in MoonClan he has a hard time fitting in with his clan, and comes off as distant though he doesn’t mean to be. Though he is an exceptional fighter he is very uncertain when it comes to making definitive choices making him seem unconfident.

DELUSIONALHAVENplayed by NovaAmaro
A girl living in her own world, Delusionalhaven always had an adventurous and free spirit. Like most of her clan, she thrives under the light of the full moon. It was on a night like this that she met Burntphoenix, a Sunclan warrior. Delusionalhaven was a young warrior when she met Burntphoenix. For a long time her loyalty to her clan wavered. All she wanted was to be with this tomcat, and she briefly considered leaving Moonclan for him. She had taken her pregnancy as a sign of Selene’s blessing for the pair. However, when the time had come for her kits to be born she realized that blessing had been a curse. Scorchedwhisker and Poeticreaper were the only ones out of her litter of four that survived, and she nearly died trying to bring them into the world. The she-cat took it as a sign from the Moon god that the relationship needed to end. She left her two kits in the care of another queen and met with Burntphoenix one last time. The new queen ended the relationship and, in order to keep her surviving kits safe, told him that all the kits had died. She felt terrible for lying, but felt she had no choice. Burntphoenix was her first love, and in many ways he still is. But once things had ended she had to fight for her place in Moonclan once more, as well as for her two surviving kits. To her Burntphoenix will always her first love, no matter how things may have ended between them. Delusionalhaven spent all her time focusing on her two kits. They were her pride and joy. She would have done anything for them, and protecting them against anything. When Scorchedwhisker left, it broke her heart. The she-cat had fallen into a dark hole for many days after the departure of her son. Though she hasn’t quite recovered from her son’s departure, Delusionalhaven pulled herself up again for the benefit of her clan. She has a habit of treating Poeticreaper as though she was still a kit, as she’s the only one left and can be fiercely protective of her daughter. She is known to pray to the Moon god to keep Scorchedwhisker safe, and often wonders what became of her son

GHOSTORCHID - played Stark Raving Mad
A snowy white she cat with long satin fur, and peridot eyes. Not outgoing, nor is she exactly the quiet type, she simply exists, only approaching others when they’re alone or in need of help. Ghostorchid isn’t a huge fan of large crowds and will always clam up or disappear whenever more than four cats are around her at a time. Ghost doesn’t have to participate to feel actively included, sometimes just being there is enough for her. Most cats find her intimidating due to her slightly antisocial behavior but she’ll open right up to any cat brave enough to approach her.

HOLLOWGROUND - played by Stark Raving Mad
A seal point tom with pale blue eyes. Hollowground looks very much like a siamese cat with his long legs, thin frame, and sharp, angular face. His points are a dark, dark brown - very nearly black - and cast a cream-colored shadow over the whites of his pelt. He is not a particularly large tom but he is taller than average, although most cats wouldn't know this because he slouches all the time. He is known to be a little abrasive but very sure-footed and skilled in both hunting and fighting. In fact, he may even be a prodigy if only he applied himself a little bit more. Lately, though, he has been slacking. He does not like being told what to do and gets annoyed very easily when others can't keep up with him. He often sets his clanmates up to fail just so he can chastise them for it, although he doesn't know why he does it because it doesn't bring him any pleasure. Maybe it's just that this seal point tom has a rebellious streak and likes to stir the pot. He tends to hang out with the new ex-rouge members of MoonClan more than his family would out of spite even though he doesn't really like the newcomers either. The truth is that Hollowground does not know what he wants. He just feels... unhappy. Hollow. It was a cruel joke to be given a name that so aptly reflects his heart. Nothing seems exciting to him and he often roams across borders looking for something, anything, to catch his eye and spirit him away somewhere more exciting...

LILY - played by honeystorm
A patched tabby she-cat, soft brown with splotches of bright ginger orange and all too familiar ivy green eyes alight with intelligence, she is a feline who could not be any less her mother, Foxstar. A creature of stealth and shadows, humble, with a generally calm, amicable attitude and a clear mind, even under pressure. She is loyal and wise, willing to fight for what she believes is right at any cost. Though her parents are of SunClan, she lived most of her moons in MoonClan, the supposed daughter of Asphodel, a she-cat who died speaking out against the SunClan High Priestess when she came to take over MoonClan moons prior. The Moon is her deity, and she lives by his words each and every day, and not one person can convince her to ever return to her birthplace, to the place that kidnapped her and had her under guard as an older apprentice and young warrior.

NIGHTSHADEPOISON - played by Sweetrose
Nightshade, when you think of this plant , you think of poison. This is what Nightshadepoison is , a black and white tom - cat with dark forest green eyes. He is named after this poisonous plant because, he is a cat who will kill anything or anyone, just to please others, who , like him are cruel , evil, murderous and much more. Born to Tarantulafur of SpringClan and an unknown Rogue she-cat. . Nightshadepoison loves to fight, and often picks fights , just for the joy of hurting others.

He hopes in the future to have a mate who will stand by his side, along with his best friend. He believes that anything weak , should be destroyed and those who aren't , are to be raised higher, and stronger. A hateful gaze, or narrowed eyes is enough reason to stay away from this tom, but his stature is another reason. He stands tall, and proud , demanding respect from all he deems unworthy of his presence. Other cats often either follow him or shrink away , when he appears before them , afraid to upset him in any way. In battle sharp claws will draw blood and give little to no mercy to those who beg. Those who fight with him , he rewards, those who don't he kills. He doesn't play games, but orchestrates them to his liking, often will involve cats getting hurt or killed. He is often seen either fighting something or , practicing on his own. Hunting on the other hand, he cares little for and often eats out , and then brings in a load of freshly mauled kills for the Clan. The Warrior Code on the other hand he deems , weak and so he makes up his own Code, and follows it to a tee, never straying from it , even if the Clans disapprove. He hopes to build the Clan , stronger by getting all the weak cats out and making the other Clans fear them.

PEACHBLOSSOM - played by honeystorm
He is a rather handsome tom, bright orange with faded patches of brownish black that fades to just barely auburn at the edges. The tom is a cat who seems to have boundless energy, always up and ready to do something, help someone, at a moment's notice. His peachy eyes glimmer, always ready to make someone's day. It is only behind closed doors, where no one can see, that he can let loose, shoulder's slumping as the mask comes off, fatigue and apathy taking over, a frown overcoming his usually optimistic expression. He is happy, and bright, and the life of the den, but not for himself, for others. For it never does seem that he can make himself feel happy, so he does all he can, no matter how hard it may be even to rise from his nest, that no one around him feels as he does. Alone, in a world far too large and dark.

POETICREAPER - played by Stark Raving Mad
A siamese mix, she has green eyes and faint tabby stripes like her father and a siamese coat like her mother. She also has a small white chin that spreads down her neck. Poeticreaper is close to her mother, and was once close to Scorchedwhisker. She understood why he left moonclan, and will often sit at the border hoping to catch a glimpse of him. Similar to Scorchedwhisker, she no longer cares what her clanmates think of her mixed blood. Unlike her brother though, she does do her best to interact and be friendly with them.

REVENANTSHIELD - played by Honeystorm
Sleek ebony fur, just thick enough for a cat to say he's not entirely short furred, and sharp amber eyes. Leader of the Silhouettes, a gang that is supposed to report to SunClan, and yet, mates with Marvelstar, and among MoonClan's Shadowhunters. Albeit, the tom doesn't exactly announce his ties to such a city group, choosing to leave MoonClan in the dark so long as his mate doesn't say anything about it herself. Despite that all, he truly is loyal to the clan and his group above all, regardless of SunClan wishes. He just plays the part as long as he's able to get away with it.

ROYALFLAME -played by Stark Raving Mad This tom carries himself with equal parts pride and purpose, each step powerful, intentional. Like he knows somebody is always watching him. To be fair, they usually are. His pewter fur is short and velvety soft to the touch, the envy of many despite being such a simple, solid color. When the light hits it just right he shines like a treasure trove. Prim and proper, Royalflame's appearance is always immaculate and his posture perfect. He has intense aegean blue eyes that demand obedience and many struggle to meet. In fact, his entire presence commands respect. He emanates this authoritative, kingly aura that is rarely found in a cat so young, and most of his peers find him intimidating but just as alluring. He's always been an exceptional Warrior, skilled in hunting and fighting, which only fuels his growing superiority complex. While many find Royalflame stifling, more buy into it, so much so that he even has a bit of a fan club that follows him around, mostly cats younger than him who haven’t quite figured out that kings need crowns. Oh, he loves the attention. Stroking his ego is the quickest way to earn his favor, and, once you are part of his court, you couldn’t ask for a more dedicated friend. He’d die before he turned his back on a member of his inner circle although it’s hard to say if that’s his heart talking or his pride.

RUBYSNAKE - roleplayed by AtomHeart
Sleek and stately, Rubysnake is a stunner. With her short black coat that picks up the light over her slim and leggy frame. Her narrow face is paired with almond shaped baby blues. Her good looks and flirtatious nature means she is hardly, if ever without an admirer or two. Yet Rubysnake is not one to pick a tom and settle down, she either strings them along or brushes them off depending on her mood. She can be thought of as heartless as she always strives to be better. In that regard she is a skilled fighter often able to beat others larger than her or with more battles under their belt. Of course she is an awful hunter, her prey somehow manages to never be fresh and is often mangled. So she is almost always excluded from hunting patrols. Of course she doesn’t stop trying even if her clan mates wished she would. Unlike her brother Slientquiver, Rubysnake is not one to stay quiet in the background. She is a bold and brash cat with no fear of offending others, because how else do you get things done?

SAGESPIRIT - played by ashestoashes
An older warrior who has seen things this cat has been through he ringer and back, but nothing as slowed this older cat down. Sagespirit is a skinny brown tabby cornish rex with green eyes who is truly a force to be reckoned with. He loves his four adopted sons Radientchaos, Astutecalm, Passionatefurry, and Virtuousblade very much and only hopes for the best for them. He is always around to be an ear for them and give any advice he can give to his boys. If someone were to hurt one of his children there will be hell to pay and isn't afraid to fight someone who brings harm to their way.

SERENELULLABYplayed by cleaver
Named for her calm demeanor and soft voice, she's one of the softest-spoken cats in the clan and many assume she has nothing important to say. She's a pacifist, the smallest of her litter and the one that likes to handle problems quietly; cats look at her once, note that she struggles to tell anyone no, and write her off as another pushover. She doesn't always let it show, but she hates it when cats ignore her: they underestimate her over and over again just because she has a little bit of self control, because she's empathetic enough to avoid hurting everyone else's feelings. Does that make her a bad cat or overly soft? She doesn't believe so. She's a traditionalist and a strong believer in second chances. Innovation is too messy and all too often she sees it as cats trying to show off, so she'd rather keep to the status quo and let things rest as they have always been. Change rattles her more than she would like, and she struggles with high-pressure situations, especially when they involve violence. She was found by Levee and Nereus along with her siblings Ignitedskies, Royalflame, Wraithvapor, and Midnightmasquerade. A pure white she-cat with one blue eye and one yellow.

SILENTQUIVER - played by Stark Raving Mad
A tall black tom with icy blue eyes. Unlike his sister Rubysnake he is an exceptional hunter and while he can hold his own in a fight he has never won one. He’s a far better strategist than a fighter. Instead of focusing on his strengths he gets in his own head dwelling on all the things he feels makes him weak, because of this he can be withdrawn and snippy. His low self esteem makes him quick to jealousy.

UNDEADECHOplayed by strawberrycupid
He was dead. Deceased. Kicked the bucket. Pushing up daisies. Any other metaphor you want to use, he knows that's the truth. After all, he could only be undead if he was dead before. So where did this beating heart come from? How can these sunken gilded eyes see? He looks like he should be dead. Covered in grey fur that borders on bone white, split up by jet black tabby stripes that look like ribs. Stretching all the way down, where each bone seems highlighted by a stripe. He has a few orange patches between the stripes, like chunks of flesh left behind after his corpse was cleaned. Undeadecho was just found one day, brought to Moonclan. He barely remembers life before then, considering this a sort of rebirth. So why is he back? Who reanimated him? Who kicked him out of heaven or hell? Undeadecho isn't sure, and no one can answer the questions he poses. Even with his doubts about fitting in with the living, he speaks their language well. Walks the walk well. A bit bitter to the taste, snarky and rude to just about everyone. While he has the empathy to understand how he makes people feel, he doesn't care. Whatever sent him back to this world must have had its reasons, so till he can figure it out, he may as well assume it was for the worst. Earth must truly be worse than hell then? Any pleasure in other's pain was learned, forced on him, for some sort of justification. He carries an emptiness in his chest, and does anything he can to fill that void. Cause the one thing they forgot to leave him with was a soul.

WICKEDKING - played by Cleaver
A medium furred black and white tom with dark amber, nearly brown eyes. This tom is needlessly cruel to others simply for his own amusement, the only cats spared are those who he sees worthy of calling his friends. He loves to play pranks and give out riddles just for the thrill of seeing others struggle to win his games.

WICKEDSHRIEK - played by biyuu
A silver tabby tom with pale green eyes. Born as a kittypet with his brother Southspectre, their neighbourhood was terrorised by an out-of-control elemental that would end up killing the other cats in their social circle. They left their homes as a result; while Southspectre started on a quest for understanding, Wickedshriek began a quest of pure vengeance, vowing revenge against elementals for wrecking his home. As a shadowhunter, Wickedshriek is talented and dedicated to the cause, aiming for a promotion to luminary one day. Though he is much more social than his brother, Wickedshriek's authoritative streak and blunt attitude can put some cats off. Though he is undeniably a skilled hunter, Wickedshriek is insecure about his abilities and compensates for his perceived weakness with bravado.



DARKNESSPAW {DESIRE} - played by ashestoashes
Of dark grays and white he has sparkling baby blue eyes that seem to glitter with desire. Desire to be the best...desire to have the best...desire for others to be jealous over him. Because he IS the best and SHOULD have the best while others DESIRE what he has. With confidence overflowing him the tom can come across as arrogant but has a charm that helps most others over look that (for the most part.) As expected he is superficial so he goes for looks rather than personality as far as friends and attraction goes. Hopefully one day he will see that beauty goes deeper than the surface. That you can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime you find you get what you need.

HAUNTEDPAW {RUINS} - played by Honeystorm The firstborn, the one who had it all. Marvelstar's pride and joy, and the destined one to take over the Silhouettes. But he had life pulling him in far too many directions. He was supposed to be a SunClan cat, and yet here he was in MoonClan, groomed to take over a group that had promised their paws to the enemy. The tom belonged to the darkness, to the light, to the grayed out walls of the seemingly endless city roads. Requiem does his best to please everyone in his life, being Ryn's ruthless heir, listening to orders and preparing to rule... even against one side of his family for the other. On the other paw, pleasing his mother was never a competition. If the black tom understood nothing else in his life, he would forever be certain that his mother would always love him. His father's an entirely different story. Despite being an heir, Hauntedruins always had the feeling he was never enough for his father. He simply wasn't as ruthless or heartless where it counted. He is strong enough, yes, but far more honorable, albeit impulsive, in contrast to his younger brother Vantanoir, not nearly so cunning and crafty. Despite that, he still cares for his family dearly. Maybe one day he'll be able to balance it all, if he doesn't get broken to pieces in the process.

LOSTPAW { TREASURE }- played by racer
A golden tabby tom with blue eyes. All his life he was raised to be a rogue until one day a pair of strangers showed up and told him he was actually a MoonClan cat and the cat he had believed to be his father had stolen him and lied to him. Lost and confused he was forced to return to MoonClan. All of this made Losttreasure very angry. He refuses to accept his new life and tends to lash out and be hostile to his new clan-mates

NOCTURNEPAW { LIGHTS } - played by Stark Raving Mad
A melanistic bengal with amber eyes. Soft spoken but by no means shy. To everyone else Nocturnelights is a timid, reserved cat who sticks to the status quo without question. He’s the first cat up in the morning, bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to seize the day. What others don’t see is the free spirited insomniac who spends his nights exploring anything and everything nature has to offer. Though he may be a cat of few words he’s the first to dive head first into even the stickiest situations with little to no regard of what the consequences may be. Nocturnelights is a firm believer that his actions speak louder than words and as a result he takes everything others say with a grain of salt. Trust is something he gives freely but is quick to take it away if you lose his.

PALEPAW { FAWN } - played by ComplacentDevil
A hidden beauty under the shadows of her home, with bright green eyes that glow as if lit by the moon goddess herself. With a pretty multi-coloured pelt to match, and an upbeat attitude she strikes envy in those around her with at no fault of her own. She simply flows with life's twists and turns, her existence easy in the sheltered territory of Moonclan. She stumbled into it's welcoming embrace young, and has yet to look back, finding herself quite comfortable with all it's members, though she may struggle to make lasting connections.

PEARPAW { TREE }played by Flurryofstars Physically strong and mentally calm, he is as stable as a tree. Get to know him and you’ll find the delicious fruit that grows within his personality. Peartree is full of compassion and constantly puts the well-being of others first. He doesn’t like to be mean and steers clear of those with negative attitudes. His biggest weakness is that he takes things at face value and can therefore, be oblivious and gullible. Charisma, on the other hand, may very well be his greatest strength. That and his heart that holds an endless supply of love for the ones he holds dearly. Peartree’s care of his clanmates does conflict at times with his internal disapproval of MoonClan’s traditions and religion. He finds their code very controlling and feels like a pawn in someone else’s game. He keeps this to himself in fear of being separated from his siblings. The golden tabby has a white chest, paws, and tail tip with vibrant green eyes.

PROMISEDPAW { PRINCE } - played by ComplacentDevil
Pure. As clean as freshly fallen snow, held to the highest regard, you know you never want to disturb it, even when you have to. This cat views himself in this way, keeping himself obsessively clean, his pelt an ever-white, crisp and alarming. He finds no fault in himself, even as he stands out amoungst the rest, a beacon in the shadows that he calls home. Though, maybe none need to be found, as his shell doesn't cause him to fall behind his peers at all, in fact, it has driven him to push harder, go longer, prove himself. And he has, and will continue to, as he holds himself in the highest regard of all. Proud of who he is, Promisedprince falters not a bit, in battle or in a battle of wits. He holds that same pride in his home and his peers, always being the first to jump in to save another. Inside, he carries secrets, that only those closest to him will ever know of, and even then, they are only betrayed through the thin cracks in his bright yellow eyes.

RAVAGEDPAW { REAPER } - played by strawberrycupid
He was like a lion walking into a poacher's trap. He knew it, even before all his friends suddenly poked their heads up and walked int Moonclan's territory. Ravagedreaper was interested too, but not for the reasons they had. Even his first few pawsteps into the forest, he felt like he didn't belong. His long grey, almost taupe coat hanging over him like a cloak, and now standing on end. And his bright gold eyes like jewels wide. At first, it was just nerves. Least that's what everyone figured. Because Ravagedreaper did everything he could to hide it. The secret element he kept close to his chest. He was just messing around one day, he swears. But it was with the forces he shouldn't have, ghosts and spirits and the dark forest. And the young tom paid a terrible price. Despite his circumstances, he's a pretty optimistic tom. Always trying to stay on the bright side and help people in need. He's the first on the front lines and the last home. But he's also quiet, keeping a distance between himself and others as far as he can. For as much as Ravagedreaper craves relationships with others, he can't let go of the guilt of endangering others for his own selfish reasons. As strong as he is, he seems to live in constant fear, jumping at even the sight of his own shadow. But why will be kept as much of a secret as he can manage.

RAVENPAW { LIGHT }played by stardance
Born into the period just before MoonClan’s transformation, Ravenlight grew up in a dynamic environment. This gave him an appreciation for MoonClan’s traditions, but led him to be skeptical of the rules. While rarely willing to outright break them, he does bend them when it suits his or his Clan’s needs. Above all that, the black Maine coon is loud and prone to outbursts, sometimes violent ones, when he gets angered. His demeanor does not even spare the kits, as he treats them much like he would treat any other adult. He means what he says. Sure, he does have sarcasm, but the underlying message would be what he considers to be true. He was a kit during MoonClan’s exile, and he believes that MoonClan needed to be more involved. If they involved themselves with their neighbors, they could make allies. They could protect themselves against the rest of the world. It was perhaps an unpopular view, but he saw it as a necessary burden to ease future ones. Being a Maine coon, he is quite large for a cat. His yellow eyes are the color of the sun at midday.

SWIRLINGPAW { FOG } - played by ian
A tom whose dark charocoal fur is marbled with ebony tendrils. His eyes are a deep amber, a teasing look never quite leaving him. He is a ladies man, or a toms man, whatever his mood at any given time. Either way, he is a charmer. He doesn't believe in commitment, and lives his life seeking temporary pleasure. He is impulsive, but quick on his feet. Incredibly smooth talking and suave, but quite talented when he's on a whim to do work.

VANTAPAW { NOIR } - played by strawberrycupid
He was second best. Never quite enough. Maybe he was held back from the get-go. It never felt like he was given the same opportunities his brother was. So Vantanoir accepted his name, and let himself descend into darkness. There's not a hint of anything else in his short pelt. The only things that stand out are his striking dark blue eyes, like pools of the deepest parts of the ocean. It's immediately apparent Vantanoir came from rich blood, the son of Marvelstar and Ryn. His father runs a group called the Silhouettes, and maybe it was his own naivety that made him believe he stood a chance of becoming the successor. Cause what kid doesn't want to follow in their father's footsteps. But that was never really the case since his brother Hauntedruins was set to become the successor from the get-go. Vantanoir couldn't help but be jealous, thrown to the wayside just because Hauntedruins was only a little older than him. So where Vantanoir couldn't win fair and square, he changed routes and became a trickster. It's hard to tell if it's all a game to him or if he's serious, but he takes any opportunity to mess with his brother and try to usurp him. Vantanoir is a schemer, through and through. He always has some trick up his sleeve to get him out of trouble, or he'll lay on this classy charm he has somehow mastered to get out. He does tend to get caught up in his schemes and thinkings, sometimes you can catch him monologuing to himself. Vantanoir isn't the cheeriest guy, it's clear even through the grin. He has a fascination with the dark and the grisly. Underneath it, he is kind and considerate, but he doesn't show it often. Because that's not going to get him to the throne any faster.

AMARYLLISKIT { BLOOM } - played by Flurryofstars
A calico American Curl with round hazel eyes. She’s as sweet as her appearance would suggest, even if her upbringing wasn’t always the easiest. Being an outsider of MoonClan and adopted by Whisperwisp, she’s had to undergo a bit of bullying here and there. Ever the easy target with her shy mannerisms and easygoing personality, much of the insults she’s heard have cut deep and even she finds herself inadequate at times. However, she tries hard to overcome her weaknesses and be a productive member of the clan. Amaryllisbloom has always had a kit-like personality with an endless amount of innocence, playfulness, and kindness to go around. Even the darkest of days couldn’t take that away from her. She’s also fascinated by the concept of love and hopes to find her soulmate one day, even if she never has the courage to approach them. Above all else, her family means the most to her and she’s determined to make them proud.

ANGELKIT { BLOOD } - played by Sweetrose
Angelblood is a snow-white short-haired she-cat with amber eyes. Born to Shimmerpelt, her Mother and Blackroot, her Father, on August, 26, 2020. Her Father had asked his mate, Shimmerpelt, Angelkit’s mother to go on a walk, on January, 26, 2021. She agreed and the two left their daughter to enjoy being together that night. They walked until the moon was high in the sky and without a second thought or words, Blackroot knocked his mate to the ground and ripped her throat out, without a care. His first murder, and it filled him with happiness. After he had murdered his mate, he ran away, leaving his Daughter, back at the camp, Motherless and Fatherless. By the time a patrol found her Mother’s body, it was almost gone, a pack of badgers had been eating her and all trace of what really happened was gone. Now Blackroot is gone, or is he? Angelkit was cared for by the Clan, who mourned her parents passing, she having been five moons old when it happened, felt the loss. She was almost an apprentice, and her parents wouldn’t see her become one or a warrior. But the thought of living and forming her own family one day, made her press on. Angelblood would never know her Father, but she would get to know her half-siblings and other relatives that still lived. She is an aggressive, she-cat who will do whatever it takes to get what she wants when she wants it. As well as shoving cats back when they try to push her around. She hates it and doesn’t do well with it. She is a survivor and will push on even when it seems things aren’t going her or anyone's way. It makes her seem intense, because she is always doing something to help her clan and clan-mates even if it wasn’t asked for. Some even call her an “Angel” because she puts others first way before herself.

ASTUTEKIT { CHARM }played by pao
To most he is gargantuan, a real force to be reckoned with, but having grown up among three brothers who rival him in sheer size, Astutecalm never felt the least bit different-- not that he ever had time to think about it if it were the case. This tom is a hundred miles a minute; behind lavender eyes flick plots and plans of varying magnitudes, as every situation calls for an escape route in his mind, and he will spend as much time as necessary to hash out all the discrepancies until it's perfect. Infallible-- which is also what he strives to be. His coat is thick and, save for where it is broken up by white splattered across his chest and paws, largely the color of gray upon a stone. Fitting, as he is the rock of his brood: the rock that weathers through winter, the stone unmoved by the storm. He was adopted by Sagespirit, and his brothers are Virtuousblade (the valiant), Radiantchaos (the prankster), and Passionatefury (the livewire). He's the second youngest of his litter and thus finds himself doting on his youngest brother Radiantchaos, though that usually means spoiling him and giving in to his every whim. When it comes to Passionatefury, he balances his brother; Astutecalm is the calm where Passionatefury is the, well, fury. Astutecalm is the calm where Passionatefury is, well, the fury. It's not often he finds himself without his namesake tranquility, except for the periods where he simply isn't doing anything. When all the plans have been plotted, when all the prey has been hunted and the borders checked and rechecked again, he will find himself restless, anxious even, his mind too fast for him to keep up and steer it away from the dark thoughts that plague him. He will foresee doom unto his brothers, of what could happen if he isn't prepared, or he will envision the emptiness after death, should religion be a myth and the gods a lie. So he stays busy, even if it leads him to redundancy, and he shrugs it off when others tell him to "take a chill pill and relax" (others being Radiantchaos mostly). If it means he can keep his family safe, what does it matter that Virtuousblade gets a little annoyed about the unwanted advice he gives at all hours of the day? His brother's sanity is a sacrifice he's willing to make.

AZALEAKIT { KISS } - played by ComplacentDevil
Abandoned, though with family present in the form of Mammon, Larkspurspeckle, Oleanderbloom, Hyacinthpetal and Foxglovedawn, this she-cat holds the fear of constant loss and a lack of stability. With exaggerated features, its obvious that Moonclan was not her origin, though she is ever adapting to fit herself in so that she doesn't stick out too much. She pulls her weight, making sure that others are taken care of before herself, mostly to pass the time and to distract herself from her anxieties of being left behind and the sadness that trails with it. Though she holds these oddities it cant be said that she isn't pretty, although her beauty is of the unorthodox kind, with a pelt of black and white, long ears and a roman nose. She has olive green eyes, drab unless someone sparks a light in them in getting close to her heart.

BLACKKIT { WIDOW } - played by ashestoashes
A short-furred solid white she-cat with blue-green eyes it is rather ironic that she is named something so opposite from her. Quiet like her mother she seems cold and slow to trust but unlike her mother she has a tendency to laugh quite a bit. Unfortunately her laugh isn't one of warmth and sound of mirth but sounds as cold and harsh as she seems (when truly it isn't meant to be cold.) It turns out she has a hidden talent of being a natural born killer, but that doesn't mean she likes it. In fact if she can she will try to avoid killing if possible.

GREENKIT { STRENGTH } - played by Racer
She was named for the light green eyes that crown her skull, a callback her father was not expecting. Greenstrength is the spitting image of her grandmother, Kosma, who resides in Sunclan. Her inky black pelt splashed with reds and browns, like light creeping through the cracks. But it's not enough to take out the darkness that dominates her pelt. Even though her grandmother despises her existence, Greenstrength admires her yet wants to usurp her.

LAKESPURKIT { SPECKLE } - played by PeachesnPanda
A tortoiseshell she-cat with green eyes. The first-born and yet the smallest. She resents her mother leaving her and struggles with issues of self-worth that tend to present in anger. Her siblings are Oleanderbloom, Azeleakiss, Hyacinthpetal, and Foxglovedawn.

OLEANDERKIT { BLOOM } - played by AtomHeart
A rather pretty little thing who looks like she might blow over in the lightest breeze. Of course if you think that you would be sorely mistaken. Despite her slim frame, she is full of muscle and more importantly full of spite. If anyone tells her she can’t do something she tends to do exactly what she was told she couldn’t. Oleanderbloom after all was raised by a handful of queens, her mother, Lilith having dropped her off in the clan under the care of her uncle, Mammon. Of course as a loner, Lilith didn’t know that Mammon was forbidden from having his own kits, much less that he had no interest in raising any kits. So while he occasionally checked in on them, making sure they were well taken care of he spent very little time with them. Once she was a full warrior the relationship improved, but even then only slightly. Oleanderbloom does not resent her mother for leaving her, afterall she has enjoyed growing up in the clan. She figured Lilith had her reasons for leaving her and her siblings, but she wished she knew more. That is what really drives her, the desire to know exactly what led to being left on the border with her uncle. Or who her father is and why he isn't involved in her life. She is a vivid calico with large patches of bright orange tabby and sleek black. A wide white blaze draws attention to her acid green eyes and petal pink nose. Her large ears, roman nose, and angular frame all point to her oriental shorthair heritage, a look she shares with her uncle.

PASSIONATEKIT { FURY } - played by NovaAmaro
His orange colored pelt is almost as fiery as his personality, and his dark amber eyes glint like a powder keg ready to explode. Which for the most part, he is. Unable to share his feelings, this tom cat will always come across as frustrated or angry with the world. Passionatefury was never known for his patience, unlike some of his other brothers. His temper has always been his strength, but it has always been his weakness as well. His weapon of choice, aside from his claws and fangs, is his sarcasm. Every word out of his mouth drips with sarcastic venom, most of it directed at Virtuousblade. The two can never seem to get along, and are always at each others throats. The only one that can seem to get through his thick skull is Astutecalm. Where Passionatfury is the brawn of the four siblings, its Astuteclam that acts as the brains. Whenever the orange maine coon has one of his more infamous bad days, he will always seek out Astutecalm until he can calm down and actually breath. Because of his short-temper, Passionatefury has a problem with authority figures. He’ll always pick arguments with them, always push their buttons. Most of the time it never ends well for him, but this seemingly bad boy can never get the hint. To him, its all in good fun. Until someone drags his brothers into it. Despite the arguments, and teasing, his brothers mean everything to him. Passionatefury will not hesitate to fight for them, or with them, and will do everything in his power to keep them safe.

Boysenberrypaw

A very angular looking cat with a sharp attitude to match. Boysenberrybite is well aware of who his family is and has mixed feelings about it. On one hand it is a powerful legacy that can be used for his advantage, on the other hand it is full of twisted killers with terrible secrets. He has not quite figured out how he wants to use it yet. Regardless he is a stunning cat with lilac fur spotted and swirled with silver and cream. Bright almond shaped eyes are a beautiful green, reminiscent of Bloodystar’s, his father. Boysenberry is a chatty, gossipy cat who does love a good rumor. There is very little that goes on around him that he doesn't know about.

Ascension Process

The Ascension Process is the process in which Mundanes train in order to ascend and become Shadowhunters.

The option is open to lovers and adopted children of Shadowhunters, and, in some rare cases, other Sighted mundanes interested or selected to become a Shadowhunter.

Any cat who wishes to ascend must first petition The Clave for permission, The Clave will then consider the petition for at least three months before approval, during which the history of the Shadowhunter who had applied, as well as his family's, is reviewed, and the background and nature of the possible Ascender is examined and evaluated. Essentially, this is done without the knowledge of the Ascender until The Clave either approves or denies their petition. The Ascender is then told about his/her situation and is then given another three months to train and study to learn about Shadowhunter Law, culture, and that of the Shadow World.

Ascension Ritual

Once their training is complete The Ascender is ready to fully Ascend this is done in a ritual were The Ascender must drink Shadowhunter blood in order to transition into a full fledged Shadowhunter. Before or after they drink the new Shadowhunter would have to speak an oath, either with or without prompting.

**Important**
THIS RITUAL HAS TWO POSSIBLE OUTCOMES


Ascendants who drink from the Cup are either unaffected by the process entirely or killed outright. When the process fails for whatever reason, the Ascendant suffers extreme pain before finally dying; the Ascendant's body is charred, his/her skin cracking, and looks as if it was burned from the inside, with his/her black veins bulging out from the skin.

If the Ascender survives this process, he/she is rendered a full Shadowhunter. Mundanes who Ascend to become a Shadowhunter may then create and submit their own Shadowhunter names for approval.


Shadowhunter Oath

I will be Selene's Cup, offering my blood to our mission.
I will be Selene's Mirror; when my enemies behold me, let them see her face in mine.
I hereby promise: I will serve with the Goddess' courage.

CINDERPEAK - played by cookie
Raised a kittypet, Cinder ventured away from his twoleg's home in the mountains to explore. As he got older, he explored further and further. Eventually, the young cat reached the border of Winterclan. Fortunately for him, he befriended a clan student who didn't kill him for trespassing. Falling for her at first sight, Cinder met her every day until he finally decided to join her Clan to live with her. What he didn't realize was that clan life was not going to be what he had expected. Quite large, Cinder has the physique for being a warrior. His heart, on the other hand, is fairly weak. He's a romantic and a daydreamer. Cinder dreamed of what his life could turn into, but the rough life of the mountains was more than he had expected. Regardless, his easygoing nature and accepting attitude helps him make friends easily. But being soft-hearted can have its downsides... He's allergic to chestnuts. Though he was a bit clueless and believed himself to also be a student, Cinder was actually a prisoner and found himself doing menial tasks for WinterClan. At one point, he was made to go on a patrol to kidnap kits from DayClan. He nearly got married to a cat named Northwind, but Cinderpeak finally realized WinterClan could not be home to him. He moved on and stumbled onto another clan in the dead of leafbare. Ever the curious cat, Cinderpeak joined the clan as a Mundane.

LOSTEDEN - played by Dot
She is the vibrate color of the dusk. When the sun begins to dip below the horizon giving away to the dark night sky. The color of the moon painted on her limbs, chest, muzzle and stomach. Soft darker spots dapple her ginger fur. She is a rather lanky cat and has a slender built. Her eyes are dark amber the color of the sun. She feels like her fur is a curse for being a vibrate ginger. She has always tried hard to prove to her fellow clan mates that she belongs within Nightclan. Jumping through hoops to prove her pure blood statues regardless of her appearance which looks like she would belong in Sunclan or Dayclan. She is close-nit with her brother Dawnbringer . She's been close with him since they were kittens in the nursery. She has fond memories of her childhood. Being told stories about the cosmos and the moon that lit up the night sky for Nightclan. The cosmos have always fascinated her whole life. It was only natural that her father named her and her brother after the night sky. She heard tales from her father about the stars in the sky. Stories that connected to the strange patterns in the night sky. The tales always fascinated her more than they did her brother Dawnbringer. Her brother found them to be boring but listened to them anyway. She had a close relationship with her brother growing up. They were each other's rock when their mother died. She also developed a friendship with another kitten named Darkkit. She became the shoulder that Darkkit could lean on after she lost her sister. Duskveil had a average apprenticeship. She struggled on learning a few tasks because of her bright pelt, but worked hard with extra lessons with Darkpaw who later became Darkmeadow and her mate. As a young warrior Duskveil narrowly died when on a hunting trip when a venomous snake almost bit her. Her father pushed her out of the way and ended up sacrificing himself. Duskveil has lived with the guilt ever since. Leading to her being more protective of her clanmates, her brother Dawkbringer and her mate Darkmeadow. She is very traditional and holds her fellow clanmates to higher standards. Casts a judgmental eye to those that go against Nightclan. She would meet death head first if it meant her sacrifice was benefiting Nightclan. She suffered an injury that caused her to stay in Moonclan for an extended period of time. Rather over protective of her son Fogspire.
VIXENSILHOUETTE - roleplayed by AtomHeart
Rather small and unassuming, Vixensilhouette is a sweet, perhaps docile cat. She is very aware of her lack of blood ties to the clan, having been brought to MoonClan by her “father” with her twin sister. Unknown to her Bloodcap actually killed her parents and kidnapped Shadowqueen and herself. Of course if she knew this she would be even more ashamed of her heritage, being raised by a killer is not exactly a redeeming quality. Vixensilhouette is a pretty thing, dark chocolate fur over a delicate frame. Black frosts her coat along her shoulders and flows down to her tail while her underbelly is lighter. Her eyes, while hazel, occasionally appear green in the brighter light. She hopes to prove herself to her clan, that she is worthy of belonging to MoonClan. With her gentle nature though she would not be one to step up and find her worthiness in grand achievements. Though she is a good hunter and a decent enough fighter. Rather Vixensilhouette plans to find her place in the clan through motherhood. She hopes to raise her own kits with a MoonClan tom and through her children cement her place in her home.

ALASTOR - played by Stark Raving Mad "COME ONE COME ALL, GATHER AROUND AND WITNESS THE MOST INCREDIBLE DISPLAY OF TALENT THIS SIDE OF THE FOREST HAS EVER SEEN!! WHY, YOU WON'T BELIEVE YOUR EYES OR EARS ONCE YOU SEE WHAT WE HAVE IN STORE FOR YOU! HOLD ON TO YOUR TAILS LADIES AND GENTS, YOU'RE IN FOR A REAL TREAT! GUARANTEED YOU WON'T LEAVE WITHOUT A SMILE!" The announcer's voice comes loud, and quickly almost too quickly but, somehow they managed not to blur together and are still coherent. That's when you see him, the tall, red tom baring his sharp yellow teeth at you in an overenthusiastic grin. amber eyes flecked with gold watch you intently, his smile is genuine but, there's there unmistakable glint of ill-intent in his eyes. He notices you're hesitance, and you're fear but still his grin does not wavier. "SMILE MY DEAR! AFTER ALL YOU'RE NEVER FULLY DRESSED WITHOUT ONE!" He shouts excitedly breaking off into laughter. Alastor is an unusual sort, always smiling, in a perpetual state of amusement. He is selfish by nature, doing things for his own benefit more often than not that benefit is starving off boredom, after all that's usually the reason any one does anything. Don't let that smile fool you though, he has a sinister side, part of him revels in the pain of discomfort in others, he gets a sick thrill out of watching people try and fail, and will offer his assistance only to ensure himself a front row seat to relish in their misery. He is not one to cross, and has no issue taking care of those who stand in the way of him and a good time by whatever means necessary. He'll never make a promise he doesn't intend to keep and holds everyone to that same standard. Whenever the bill comes due you can count on him to be there to collect.

FROSTWINGplayed by cookie
Frostwing is a silver and black tabby with orange eyes. She is originally from SpringClan but was drawn to MoonClan after learning of the Moon Goddess. Eerie and odd and into the occult, Frostwing felt a connection to this dark world lit by the moon. She focuses everything on the Goddess. Her personality is still under development, but the she-cat is very mysterious in speaks in a slow, formal tone.

TWILIGHTVEIL - played by Jadie
Short, iron gray fur cloaks his rigid frame, interrupted only by frosty white patches on his muzzle, neck, stomach and paws. His eyes are a startling arctic blue and just as frigid as the ice they so resemble. He has a deep scar on his throat and tends to err on the side of sickly: Any wound or illness takes him twice as long to recover. That’s the price he has to pay for his element, Self Sustenance, which allows him to survive without eating or sleeping at the cost of his comfort and speed of healing. He has also been “blessed” with the Sight, which at least promises the company of spirits during his many sleepless nights. All things considered, though, Twilightveil is a surprisingly normal tom. Introverted and guarded - no surprise given the fact that he’s SunClan born and raised - but with a level head on his shoulders and strong moral code. Without question he put his life on the line for those he cares about, which are far greater in number than he would ever openly admit. He likes to play the tough, edgy loner-type, but all he’s got is the image, which isn’t really fooling anyone.

FOGKIT {SPIRE}played by Dot
Dark flame point Siamese tom with blue eyes. He adores the stars and all their beauty. He is an astronomer at heart who doesn't believe in Starclan. He believes the stars are powerful in their own right and that the sky doesn't contain a bunch of dead cats. He was the only elemental born in his litter. It's very unknown why he is an elemental and he doesn't even know himself. It's a fact he keeps to himself. He has empathic abilities that allow him to feel other's emotions and to even see them in the form of auras. His abilities cause him to suffer from migraines that can be debilitating at times. He has a twin brother, but doesn't remember him much, because he ended up in Moonclan at a very young age.

MoonClan's territory is made up mostly of heavily forested terrian, with an open moorland making up their most southern touch of territory. To outsiders MoonClan's territory looks plain and simple. That's how they like it. The truth of the matter is that MoonClan is home to a lot of hidden gems and ancient secrets that they don't want the other clans to know about.

The Cathedral is where The Painted sisters call home. It is a long forgotten Cathedral now overgrown with grass and lush plants and flowers in every color imaginable. This is what the Sisters use to make their enchanted paints. Only Female Shadowhunters are permitted to enter The Cathedral by Tradition and Law.

Even more hidden than the Silent City, the Cathedral's location remains unknown, despite its age. It is reached through one of a number of entrances scattered around the territory, the oldest of which is found in Alicante.

The Shadowhunter Academy is a run down homestead that has been left in little more than ruins. It is located on a cliff over looking the river on the Northern part of MoonClan's Territory. Many Tutors have tried to liven up the place and all have failed.

Shadowhunters sent to the Academy usually attend only for further training at the age of six moons, after being tutored in Shadowhunter basics at the Insitute until that point. Some young Shadowhunters, however, do not attend the school because their guardians simply chose not to send them, or they weren't accepted because of certain reasons, such lack of previous knowledge of Shadowhunting basics or poor physical condition. An exception to the age rule is also in some situations, as is the case with the much older students, such as Mundane recruits.

There are two 'streams' at the Academy: one for the students who were born Shadowhunters and another for mundanes (called dregs by some of the students and tutors). The curriculum for the Shadowhunters is more advanced, with classes for reinforcing their already existing skills in fighting, and Marking themselves up with runes. The Mundanes, having much more to learn to catch up to the Shadowhunters, study rudimentary combat skills, basic Shadowhunter history lessons, and memorized the finer points of the Covenant—things most of their Shadowhunter classmates already know by then. The two tracks spent most of the day in separate classes, but they began every day together at the training field.

Graduates can then choose to go on to attend the Scholomance.

Alicante, Also referred to as "The City of Glass" is a hidden temple located behind the waterfall in MoonClan's territory. It is named for it's constantly flowing water pouring down the walls making them look smooth and glisten like glass.

The Temple serves as a scared place to worship The Godess Selene, it is said here is where The Consul is closest to the Moon Godess. Some lucky few have even claimed to see glimpses of Selene herself wandering the Temple it's self. The Temple's secondary purpose is to serve as a burial ground for Shadowhunters who have died from anything aside from in combat.

The Scholomance is a Shadowhunter school where the most elite of Shadowhunters are trained to deal with demons and Downworlders.

The Scholomance trains the most elite Shadowhunters, particularly those that graduated with the highest honors from the Shadowhunter Academy. Before admittance, one had to pass a series of harsh tests. What was learned at the school was not to be shared with others. Students who graduate from the school become Luminaries. The Overseer of this Academy is the most elite of the Luminaries Prima Lux or First Light.

The Scholomance is a castle, with towers and corridors carved into the side of a cliff underneath the Shadowhunter Academy. It is said to be much harder and lonelier than the Academy, and some of the students have wound up failing out with nervous breakdowns.The main entrance to the Scholomance is through the side of the cliff face.

The City of Ash is the burned down ruined remains of what may, or may not have been a two-leg house at one point. It's territory offers very little shelter and can be dangerous to narigate if you aren't used to setpping over rocks and debris every where you look.

Unfortunately for them The City of Ash is where The Mundanes and Downworlders call home. It is located across the river, away from the Institute. Because Shadowhunters look down on Mundanes and Shadowhunters as their lessers they were assentially cast aside in this charred chunk of territory. Luckily for it's inhabitants though, the surrounding forest is lush and filled with prey.

The Institute in an old seemingly abandoned church that functions as MoonClan's main camp. Thedifferent rooms inside make up the various dens that house their respective Clave members. The Insitute can also sometimes Serve as an Aslyum for Mundanes and Downworlders under the protection of Shadowhunters.

The Institute

The Silent City is the base of operations of the Silent Brothers. It is an extensive and complex "city" of levels and chambers so vast and deep underground. It is made entirely from the bones of dead Shadowhunters.

Found on the upper level of the city is the council chamber. Beyond this are several other levels kept mostly a secret from and off-limits to non-Brothers.

At the lowest depths of the city are a series of levels that holds the necropolis of the Shadowhunters—the graveyard, ossuary, and mausoleums—where the bodies of those who died in battle are buried, entombed, and sometimes burned and used to fortify the City's structure; those who died of other means, are not accepted in the City and are instead buried in other places, including Alicante.

On the very lowest levels are the prisons of the Silent City, known to hold both the dead and the living. Here are several jail cells, where the worst and most dangerous of Law-breakers and wrongdoers guilty of great crimes are confined and incarcerated, whereas those guilty of lesser violations are kept in Alicante, or in the keeps of the Institute. Some criminals are simply kept there before they are called to stand trial before the Council. Sometimes, it is also used as a holding cell for those they need in the city overnight.

Much like The Cathedral, the Silent City can be reached through one of a number of entrances scattered around the territory. The Silent Brothers, and occasionally Painted Sisters, use this to their advantage to quickly travel between distant places to be rapidly deployed where they are needed. However, because of the secrecy of the Brothers with their city levels, regular Shadowhunters are not permitted to do so by tradition and Law

What Is The Clave?

THE CLAVE:
The collective name for the political body made up of all active Shadowhunters. All Shadowhunters that recognize the authority of Selene and her Consul make up the Clave. When Shadowhunters reach adulthood at age 12 moons, they declare their allegiance and become full Clave members.

LUMINARIES - Luminaries are The Elite Shadowhunters trained in survival skills and advanced combat in order to fight off demons and deal with downworlders.

Mundanes and Downworlders

Any cat born outside of The Clave is considered a Mundane and seen as a lesser to Shadowhunters and The Clave.

Any cat who posesses some sort of ability greater than the gift of sight (the ability to see ghosts and demons) are considered Downworlders, and are more often than not, strongly disliked by The Clave. (See Elementals)

Both Mundanes and Downworlders alike are permitted to join MoonClan but in order to preserve Clave secrets and uphold The Law They are immediately escorted to a secondary camp known as The City of Ash where they will remain until they decide to ascend, if they ever do.

Runes & Marks

Disclaimer: These runes may or may not actually work, but MoonClan simply believes that they do. They however definetely do not work outside of The Forest Clans

Shadowhunters were given runes by the Goddess Selene. These runes, or Marks, are painted on the Shadowhunters' fur with enchanted paint made by the Painted Sisters, and gives different effects and abilities. The paint used is water resiliant and cannot be washed off but will fade over time or once the rune has served it's purposes

When a young Shadowhunter is set to begin his or her formal training, usually around the age of 6 moons, they receive their first rune, typically the Voyance rune, in a formal ceremony done by Silent Brothers. In some cases, like when the child of former Shadowhunters chooses to join their ranks at a later age, they receive these runes later; another special case is the reception of a different Mark than what is usually given first when the child is weak or sickly.

Runes are typically painted on the fur with black paint but the color of the paint may vary depending on the circumstances.
Selene, Idris and The Afterlife

Cats in MoonClan worship the Moon Goddess Selene. This practice started ages ago with the first MoonClan leader to renounce StarClan, a former BrookClan cat known as Wastedstar. Back then the cats of MoonClan knew of their deity simply as The Moon God. It was thought that the Gods of the sun and moon were brothers and rivals. It wasn’t until the former leader Nightstar came to power that it was revealed their beloved Moon God was not only a Goddess but, she had a name. It was Nightstar’s connection with Selene that helped MoonClan develop a closer spiritual relationship with their Goddess. Since then Selene has had a deep connection with every new leader, visiting them in dreams more frequently, and whispering her guidance and wisdom to them whenever they need it most.

IDRIS:
Idris is MoonClan's version of StarClan, and it is where their soul joins Selene when it is finally removed from the cycle of reincarnation.

Limbo:
Limbo exists for all cats, but, while most Clans view this afterlife with dread, MoonClan celebrates it. MoonClan cats know that they will be blessed to wander among the living for as long as it takes for them to settle their earthly matters and then rejoin the cycle of reincarnation.

Some cats only briefly enter limbo while others remain there for decades. What triggers the cycle of reincarnation is different for every cat. Spirits are visible only to cats gifted with the Sight unless on Hallowed Ground. Spirits can be visible to any cats on Hallowed Ground but only if they wish to be seen. Typical spirits cannot be touched and most cats cannot speak to them until they have nearly completed meditation training. Some cats simply lack the skill and struggle to see them, even on Hallowed Ground, and never hear their voices.

Cats in limbo can go wherever they want but those from MoonClan typically choose to remain within Alicante, only occasionally venturing to The Institute. Only the spirits of Shadowhunters are welcome in Alicante. The rest are free to roam the territory as they please.

Shadowhunter spirits in limbo can go into a “hibernation” where they physically disappear but do not cease to exist. Typically they inhabit an item (stones, pendants, etc) within Alicante and rest there until called upon by the living or other spirits.

Living MoonClan cats deeply respect the spirits. They do not take them for granted and go through great lengths to avoid interfering with their afterlives as much as possible. The living provide and maintain a safe dwelling as the spirits transition into their next lives. In exchange, the spirits offer advice and serve as a library of MoonClan’s history should that knowledge ever be needed.

Reincarnation:
Once a MoonClan cat exits limbo, it becomes reincarnated and begins a new life. This is not a standard StarClan reincarnation as the future life knows very little of its past. This cat may sometimes have flashbacks of previous lives but rarely does it escalate further than feelings of deja vu. Often a MoonClan cat never learns the name of their past life or lives. It is believed that each life teaches a different lesson.

A reincarnated cat does not necessarily look or even have the same gender as its previous life. While it is common for a reincarnated cat to be born to its previous life’s blood relative, that is not a given, either. A reincarnated cat usually does retain a quirk or two from their previous lives. A nervous twitch, a favorite food, simple things like that.

Reincarnated cats must be born on Hallowed Ground although not all kits born on Hallowed Ground are reincarnated. Reincarnated cats have an advantage in meditation (due to glimpses of their past lives). A cat typically joins Selene in Idris by its ninth life; however, there are some that reincarnate indefinitely. It is unclear why this is allowed to happen but, the older the spirit, the more it is respected.

Demon (or Hollow; Soulless):
A wicked spirit that comes into existence when a cat who has entered limbo consumes multiple spirits of other cats. This is not a fast process and is absolutely deliberate. These spirits are powerful, dangerous and an absolute scourge to MoonClan territory, as the Hallowed Ground gives them strength and offers them spirits of the highest quality.

Demons first came into existence when a cat wanted to become a god and assumed that devouring souls was the way to do it; however, such a task is only suited for the divine. MoonClan cats are especially desirable to demons due to the fact that one soul can hold the weight of multiple, even hundreds, of lives.

Demons can prove a true threat to the living. Typically they possess cats and drive them mad by whispering in their ears, haunting their dreams and turning their loved ones against them. Some especially powerful demons can even do bodily harm.

There is no way to return a soul back to its purest state after it has been turned. Some demons may wish to repent but there is no going back.

MoonClan cats are forbidden to talk to or interact with demons. Even speaking of demons is considered taboo but still done in secrecy

Parabatai, Trials and Oath

WHAT ARE PARABATAI?

A parabatai is a pair of Shadowhunters who fight together as lifelong partners, bound together by oath, regardless of their gender. Their bond is not reflected only in their closeness and willingness to lay down their lives for one another, but also in oath—one sworn in front of the Council.

Not all Shadowhunters are required to have parabatai; it is actually less common to have them. A Shadowhunter has only 12 moons to find and choose a parabatai; once older than that, the ritual is no longer open to the Shadowhunter.

BOND

A Shadowhunter may choose only one parabatai in their lifetime and cannot perform the ritual more than once. Most Shadowhunters never have any parabatai at all; so, being fortunate enough to find someone worthy of becoming ones' parabatai is considered a blessing. This ritual bond enhances the natural feelings of love and friendship that already exist between the pair; however, this does not prevent rivalry or hate from forming between them.

The parabatai runes placed upon them enable them to draw on each other's strength in battle. They also maintain a strong connection between one another and are able to sense each other's life force; Shadowhunters who have lost their parabatai describe being able to feel the life leave their partner, and when something supernatural happens to the other. n addition, Marks made by one parabatai upon another are stronger than Marks drawn by others.

SERVERANCE

The parabatai bond is broken, normally, only by the death of one of the members of the partnership. However, the binding can also be cut, or may fade, in some rare circumstances: if one becomes a Downworlder, if one leaves their life as a Shadowhunter to be with a mundane, or if one is stripped of their Marks and becomes a mundane, and if one is exiled.

When one becomes a Silent Brother or a Painted Sister, the bond dissolves naturally. Additionally, when the bond is severed or twisted in any way, when they are separated or if a great distance is placed between them, the partners would feel the connection break, or could feel constant or sudden painful sensations comparable to literal tugs to their hearts, or some other strange feeling easily associated with it.

The only bond forbidden to the parabatai is the romantic bond, and it has become a rule upheld by the Clave, written into the Law.

THE RITUAL

parabatai must be bonded in childhood; that is, before either has turned 12 moons old. They are not merely warriors who fight together; the oaths that newly made parabatai take in front of the Council include vows to lay down one's life for the other, to travel where the other travels, and indeed, to be buried in the same place.

THE TRIALS

Trial of Water
Prospective parabatai must undergo some tests before their ceremony to make sure their bond is true; the trial of water is one such test. The test itself is kept secret and must be done without prior knowledge to it being taken—knowing ahead of time and preparing can tamper the results.

The pair consume water from the river. The waters of the river will cause them to hallucinate. The objective is to see if they both go to the same place in their mind and, when put to the test in this hallucination, that they both risk their own lives to save the other, defying the point of where they should die in order to rescue one another. Passing the test proves the existing link between them before the bond makes it official.

Trial of Fire In the actual ceremony held to bind the parabatai—referred to in name as "the Fiery Trial"—there will be three rings of fire on the ground: two for the individuals, and a third one in the middle that will serve as the shared ring, seemingly symbolizing the union or joining of the pair as parabatai. The words of the parabatai oath are spoken, and parabatai runes are exchanged and placed on each other.

WITNESSES Two witnesses are required for the ritual, though their presence is mostly symbolic and are typically two people of importance to those being bonded. During the ceremony, each stands near the person who chose them's ring of fire.

THE OATH
Entreat me not to leave thee,
Or return from following after thee—
For whither thou goest, I will go,
And where thou lodgest, I will lodge.
Thy Clan shall be my Clan, and thy God my God.
Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried.
The Godess do so to me, and more also,
If aught but death part thee and me.
Other Traditions

BIRTH

Newborn Shadowhunters have spells cast on them to protect their minds from demonic influences. These rituals protect the Shadowhunters from demon visions and possessions directed towards them. Technically, the ritual is mainly only necessary for those who are in danger of being targeted, so people with Shadowhunter blood but who are un-Marked and raised among mundanes, with no one knowing what they are, will remain unaffected, or minimally so, by the lack of the spell. The rituals are performed by a Silent Brother and an Iron Sister. Since Shadowhunter blood is mostly dominant, if a Shadowhunter has children with any cat, their children will still be a Shadowhunter.

DEATH

To honor a Shadowhunter's death, most of them are burned, and their remains are later interred. Those who die in battle are buried in The Silent City, Those who die by any other means are buried in Alicante.

However, those whose deaths are not considered honorable, such as criminals, and monsters, are instead buried, whole and unburned, in other places.

FUNERALS

During funerals, or when a Shadowhunter dies with another present, their name and the words Ave Atque Vale, which means "hail and farewell" are spoken.

Before being set on the funeral pyre, the Shadowhunter's body is presented so that words of mourning can be spoken and those left behind can pay their last respects. The eyes of the dead Shadowhunter are bound with white silk, and they are laid to rest with their forelegs crossed over their chest. Then traditionally conclude with a the words Pulvis et umbra sumus.—"We are dust and shadows."

MoonClan burial ceremonies were generally for Shadowhunters only, but an exception could be made for those who died in the service of the Clave.

MARRIAGE

The color of marriage is gold. Shadowhunters generally wear gold runes on their pelts. Marriages are often done in Alicante.

A tradition in Shadowhunter weddings involves a significant person to the bride and groom: who would "give away" the bride/groom to her/his partner and welcome the other into the family. THis person would be of significance—a father, mother, sibling, child, friend, parabatai, or an elder who symbolized the whole family—chosen by the bride/groom. It is not always necessary or even possible to have This significant person.

The Shadowhunters mark each other with permanent runes of love and commitment over their heart and arm, signifying their love and devotion for one another.

INTERMARRIAGE

Relationships with mundanes are generally looked down upon by the Clave. In fact, marriage to mundanes is forbidden. However, Shadowhunters can be with Downworlders; they simply cannot be wed in a Shadowhunter ceremony because the Downworlders cannot bear the rune that is a part of this ceremony.

To be able to marry a mundane, a Shadowhunter will have to leave the Clave and become a mundane, stripped of their Marks. There are three rules for those who leave the Clave. First, the Shadowhunter must sever contact with any and all Shadowhunters they have ever known, even their own family. Second, they cannot call upon the Clave for help. And third, the Clave can still lay claim to their children, wherein they can their children will be made aware of their lineage and will be offered to become Shadowhunters every moon until they are 12 moons old. However, this can be avoided if the prospective mundane lover Ascends to become a Shadowhunter.
Colors and Meanings.

Black for hunting through the night

For death and mourning, the color’s White.

Gold for a bride in her wedding gown,

And Red to call enchantment down.

White Silk when our bodies burn,

Blue banners when the lost return.

Flame for the birth of a Shadowhunter,

And to wash away our sins.

Gray for knowledge best untold,

Bone for those who don't grow old.

Saffron lights the victory march,

Green will mend our broken hearts.
