Wow... The background turned out horrible. I tried to make light patches on the ground and they suck, I tired to shade the trees and bushes and they suck. At least the cat is ok.
I drew him getting some herbs. :3
This is my tryout for medicine cat of StoneClan. :3
Age: 43 moons (3 years 7 months)
Likes: the smell of marigold, stargazing, challenging works (ex: healing a broken bone, curing green-cough)
Dislikes: easy tasks (taking out thorns from paws, cobweb on a small cut), the smell of parsley, sharp objects (not including claws), unorganized dens
Mother- Berrytail- Deceased
Siblings- N/A, might add one later...
Mate: Not allowed
Kits: Not allowed
Personality: A genuinely nice cat, intelligent, clever, loyal, noble
Description (of appearance): A lighter black with a white chest, belly, tail tip, and white front right paw. Muzzle and ear tips are also white. Very small for a full grown cat, isn't strong compared to some apprentices. Very fluffy tail and short-haired body, dull claws, sharp, yellow teeth. Grassy green eyes.
History as kit: Swiftkit was born to a dark black cat with bright, yellow eyes. Her name was Berrytail, and she was one of the eldest queens in the nursery. Swiftkit's father was unknown, but most cats assumed it to be the former deputy, Tallblaze, who died by getting hit by a twoleg monster. Berrytail was very protective over her kit and always encouraged him to try his best to be the best warrior in the Clan. One morning, the day before his apprenticeship, his mother grew fatally sick. The medicine cat tried her best to find out what was wrong with Berrytail. The next morning, Berrytail was announced dead. Swiftkit was so distraught that his apprenticeship was delayed.
History as an apprentice: Two mornings after the death of his mother, Swiftkit decided he would be a medicine cat apprentice instead of a warrior cat apprentice. When asked why, he explained that he wanted to help cats get cured or give medical-attention (not those exact words xD) so cats wouldn't feel the same way he did for the past two days. He was apprenticed as a medicine cat apprentice and he enjoyed every single bit. On the day of his first trip to Moonstone, he didn't have a dream, confusing him, but didn't tell anyone. Days afterwards, he already memorized the uses of more than 10 herbs and their names, descriptions, and smell. About a moon in, he memorized over half of the herbs. Seeing that he was learning so fast, his mentor decided to let him start helping cats when they walked into the medicine cat den when she (the medicine cat) was gone. Swiftpaw learned even faster this way. After moon after moon after moon, Swiftpaw became so intelligent with all the herbs and all their uses that he almost was a full time medicine cat. The medicine cat started introducing Swiftpaw into prophecies about 4 moons into training. His efforts slowly went down until he didn't even try to uncover the answers of prophecies, upsetting his mentor. When confronted about it, Swiftpaw admitted that he indeed did not believe in StarClan, but hoped it wouldn't ruin his time as a medicine cat. His mentor understood, but inside was gravely disappointed. 6 moons into training, Swiftpaw had his medicine cat ceremony.
History as a medicine cat: Swiftpaw had became Swiftwing! He was delighted to now be a full time medicine cat. Now, when he isn't helping a cat or collecting herbs, he is coming up with ideas of new ways to treat cats with unknown diseases and injuries. He also shares all of his discoveries with the other medicine cats when they meet. Swiftwing has saved lives with his new discoveries and hopes to become one of the most well-known medicine cats in history. He also hopes to soon have an apprentice of his own soon so he can try and spread the knowledge of medicine to other cats and save many cats from having to lose a loved one.
I love your icon btw xD
