Creating a Character!

Post by Daisyleap on Wed Jul 15, 2015 4:47 pm

Please read this so you know how to post an audition. Do NOT roleplay until a StarClanner has accepted your audition. There are many types of templates; choose which one you'd like to use. We at Blazing Tails chose for many selections so you can pick which one is right for you. Honorchior is an acception for a completely different template because she needs the special time. For each template, members MUST include a roleplay sample just on their first audition so I can see how well you can handle a cat and if you can roleplay well.
~~~~Audition Template #1 must have these requirements:~~~~
Name: (present, future, and past **if any**
Age: (in moons, please)
Gender: (she-cat or tom)
Preferred Position: (deputy, medicine cat, apprentice, queen, etc)
Clan/Tribe: (StreamClan, FallowClan, the Tribe of Secret Souls, etc)
Alive Family: (all of your cats alive family members)
Deceased Family: (all of your cats deceased or dead family members; please include HOW they died)
Description: (the appearance of your charries pelt, face, body features, and any other extras like scars or a ripped ear)
Physical Abilities: (the skills and weaknesses of your cat)
Personality: (the positives, negatives, and neutrals of your cats personality go here)
Likes and Dislikes: (optional; what your cat likes and dislikes about life)
History: (at least 5 sentences of what happened in their past like kithood, apprenticeship, etc. Optional if you're creating a kitten)
Accomplishments/Plans for the Future: (something your cat has accomplished in life and plans on doing in the future. Examples are, how will they die, will they get a mate and kits, what plot you'd prefer to be involved, etc, etc. Also optional)
Extras: Anything else you'd like to share about your cat, like sexualities, mental disorders, diseases, being blind or deaf or mute, etc, etc. This is optional)
Roleplay Sample: (only for your first audition. it just explains how well you can roleplay and, if you auditioned for a higher ranked cat, if you can handle the role well)

Example of Template #1 (made by Littlefern on WC)-
Name: Cloudnose
Age: 98 moons
Gender: she
Preferred Position: Elder
Clan/Tribe: FallowClan
Alive Family: Shadowheart (brother), Willowfeather (sister), Petalbreeze (sister)
Deceased Family: Adderhunt (father), Mistybreeze (foster mother), unknown kittypet mother
Description: Click here. Short-haired black and white cat in tuxedo fashion.
Personality: When she was younger, Cloudnose was very much the fun-loving cat who was up for anything. Even after her quest to find her real mother, she remained very easy going but came back with a slight serious edge. Nowadays, Cloudnose is a grumpy elder to everyone but her denmates.
Physical Abilities: Cloudnose never had a skill she was better at than all the others, she was pretty much average at everything and nothing was exceptional about her.  Like most elders, Cloudnose despises that she is now too old to be able to look after herself without help. She often has trouble with joint aches.
Likes & Dislikes: She loves to eat robins and the occasional rabbit. She absolutely hates getting wet, and prefers to stay dry.
History: Cloudnose was born to a kittypet mother and a clanborn father. Her father had a brief romance with a kittypet, which lead to kits that neither were ready for. There were only three kits in the litter. Addertooth, Cloudnose's father, decided that he would not see the kittypet anymore and as a parting gift, the kittypet gave Cloudnose to Addertooth. Addertooth brought Cloudnose to FallowClan and after the initial surprise and shock, Mistybreeze nursed her along with her own kits. Cloudnose was brought up thinking that Mistybreeze was her true mother, as later Addertooth and Mistybreeze became mates and when she was apprenticed and found out, Cloudnose left the clan briefly in search of her real mother. She was a kittypet for a short time during her search, but as she never found her mother, she came back to the Clan. She is now an elder in the Clan.
Accomplishments/Plans for the Future: N/A
Extras: N/A
Roleplay Sample: Cloudnose & Petalbreeze padded out of the elders den. Cloudnose looked up at the sky and sighed. "It might rain later." a voice said. Shadowheart popped out from behind his sisters, making them jump with fright. Right then Willowfeather had trotted over, and she bumped into the black and gray toms shoulder roughly with her own. Shadowheart rolled his eyes and groaned. Cloudnose flicked his ear with her tail. "Oh, shut up, you old flea." she mewed with a purr of amusement rumbling in her throat. When the FallowClan leader called for everyone attending the Gathering to clump around the camp entrance, Willowfeather and Petalbreeze waved their tails to their brother and sister. "Bye sis! Bye bro!" the yowled together in harmony. "I feel bad for them. They have to stay and guard the camp all by themselves with the most annoying litter of kits since we were apprentices." Cloudnose nudged her brother as she started padding towards the Gathering place, the siblings holding up the rear of the gang. Shadowheart shrugged. "Ehh. They'll get used to it. I guarded so many times I think I'm going deaf from those nasty little kittens." Chuckling, his eyes sparkled when he saw the Gathering area. He'd been there and seen it so many times, but once he steps foot into the hollow, he feels like he was just born and was young again, with so many more things to explore and discover. Cloudnose rolled her eyes at her brother and quickly found a place in the front to sit so she could see FallowClan's leader more clearly since she had a secret love for him, even though he already has a mate. Sighing, she went lost in her thoughts while everyone was getting ready for the Gathering to start.

You could also do Template #1 this way:

Cloudnose ~ 98 moons ~ FallowClan
Cloudnose is a short-haired black and white she-cat in tuxedo fashion. She is an elder of FallowClan at 98 moons. Her only family alive are her littermates, Shadowheart (brother), Willowfeather (sister), and Petalbreeze (sister). Her father Adderhunt is deceased, and so is her unknown kittypet mother. Her adoptive mother Mistybreeze was swept away by greencough, so she is also dead. When she was younger, Cloudnose was very much the fun-loving cat who was up for anything. Even after her quest to find her real mother, she remained very easy-going but came back with a slight serious edge. Nowadays, Cloudnose is a grumpy elder to everyone but her denmates.  Cloudnose never had a skill she was better at than all the others; she was pretty much average at everything and nothing was exceptional about her.

~~Audition Template #2 MUST have these requirements:~~
Name: (their past, present and future name **if any**)
Age: (written in moons; not months/years, please)
Gender: (tom or she-cat)
Clan/Tribe: (FireClan, StreamClan, the Tribe of Silver Phantoms, etc)
Appearance Picture: (a picture of what your cat will look like)
Appearance in Words: (explain how your cat looks like)
Personality: (happy, shy, depressed, evil, etc)
Preferred Position: (kit, warrior, leader, elder, etc)
Skills & Flaws: (the strengths and weaknesses of your cat)
Family/History: (at least 5 sentences about your characters past and family. Auditioning kits means you must tell at least a sentence or two about their birth, like if they have any birth defections, etc. If you're making a kitten that's about to be born, tell us what their birth will be like)
Extras: (anything else you'd like to add about your cat to let us know. Optional)
Roleplay Sample: (only if it is your first audition. It is optional to do it every time you audition)

Example for Template #2 (made by Littlefern on WC)-
Name: Mousey, used to be Bailey when a kittypet
Age: 37 moons
Gender: tom-cat
Clan/Tribe: none
Appearance Picture/Link: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/a4/07/c0/a407c0f8270d03b48c334ab32ef63260.jpg
Appearance in Words: Big, bi-color Maine Coon tabby with irregular white markings.
Personality: Mousey is very skittish when it comes to housefolk he doesn't know, but was very affectionate with the housefolk he lived with and a bit of a goofball. As for other cats, he gets along well when he wants to but will often try to initiate rough play fighting. In short, though he is an adult cat, he acts like a big kitten and is very wary of the unknown.
Preferred Position: Loner/Rogue/or may stay kittypet
Skills & Flaws: Mousey's only redeeming skill is being able to cheer up just about anycat with his goofiness. He is an Awful climber, fighter, hunter, you name it. Anything forest cats are good at, he sucks at. But, he'll get around to it sooner or later.
Family/History: There's nothing too special about Mousey's history. He was born to a kittypet mother who he loved dearly and had several sisters. He was the only boy so he often would bully them and play too rough, which would get him a stern tail-flick from his mother. After several moons, he was taken away from his mother and received his own housefolk. He was originally an indoor cat and his owner has only just begun letting him out to explore the world. His next door friend named Astrid helped him escape, and now they are traveling somewhere together, far away from the odd kittypet life. Mousey has a crush on Astrid, and hopes they will become mates soon and have many kittens.
Extras: N/A
Roleplay Sample: Mousey ate a squirrel he had caught last night. His friend Astrid had begun to collect and gather leaves to make a nearby bush their den for a few sunrises before they set off again. Once Mousey finished his squirrel, he went over to his friend to help her collect sticks and leafs. After they collected more than enough together, they padded back over to the sheltered bush under two large, hanging baobab trees. The fat trunks of those unique trees would keep their bush warm, cozy, and toasty since it was leaf-fall, comin' to leaf-bare, since the bush itself wasn't so warm. They started to weave the sticks and leaves together and then twirled them around the bush. Then they kept running in and out of the bush to hollow out what could be a real den, and then, finally, they were done! "It's perfect!" they called in harmony. Astrid and Mousey shared tongues, then snapped their eyes shut in wait for tomorrow.


~~Audition Template #3 MUST have these requirements:~~
Name: This is simple, just your character's name.
Desired Name: This is only applicable if your character is an apprentice, or a loner, rogue or kittypet you intend to have join a Clan. Otherwise, just leave this blank. Also, if you'd prefer to let the leader of your cat's Clan choose their name, you can leave this blank as well.
Age: Your character's age. Please list this in moons.
Rank: Your character's rank in the warriors world. Keep in mind this is only applicable to Clan cats and other organized groups. If your cat is a rogue, loner, or kittypet, you can leave this blank.
Allegiance: The group your cat belongs to.
Birth Moon: Moon and Year format. The current moon and year can be found in the tabs to the right of every page. If you use this site, just have a look at the full moon of the moon we're currently in and then count backwards from the character's age through the full moons until you reach zero.
Gender: Your character's gender. Must be either a tom (un-neutered male), queen (un-spayed female), gib (neutered male) or a molly (spayed female).
Appearance: This should be at least a few sentences, describing your character's appearance in detail. This is for you or other players to refer to when necessary. This is also used to create genotypes. You can include a picture if you choose.
Personality: Give a summary of your character's personality. Try not to say what other people generally think of them, as that is considered powerplaying. Instead, describe how your character looks at the world, what they think of things, and how they act. Include lots of detail here; it doesn't have to be paragraphs, but more than a sentence or two.
History: Here you can give a quick history of your character's life so far. Unless something of importance has happened in your character's past, you can leave this blank if you choose. We at BTGF would rather have you explain a brief kithood, apprenticeship, warrior ceremony, etc. Of course, the more info the better!
Example of Template #3 (made by Zesha on The Clan Renaissance)-
Name: 

    Blackcloud “Boots”



Desired Name: 

    N/A



Age: 

    149 moons (12 years, 1 month)



Gender: 

    Queen



Birth Moon: 

    Pink Moon, 2003



Allegiance: 

    Kittypet; Former: StreamClan


Rank: 

    Former: Medicine Cat



Appearance: 

    Click for image. (This is a picture of my real life cat. Please do not use elsewhere.)



    Blackcloud is an old Persian mixed breed, with long, black fur and a white chest and paws. She was the runt of the litter when she was born, and her small size has stuck, though it isn't too huge of a difference. She's roughly two inches shorter than a regular cat of her breed. Despite the fact that she now lives with Twolegs, her fur gets matted often, and large clumps of fur can be found mostly on her sides. Due to her age, she wobbles a bit while she walks, but her legs are still rather strong for an old furball. Aside from the wobble, her teeth are her only problem, with one of her fangs missing and the rest yellow like her eyes.



Personality: 

    Calm – Caring – Decisive – Dutiful – Focused – Grumpy



    As the old Medicine Cat of StreamClan, Blackcloud, called Boots by her Twoleg, is a highly intelligent and hardworking cat. Even when she “retired” from her Clan she continued to care for cats around her new home until she became too old to do so. Her soft spot is for kits, and she views each of them as her own.Of course, age has also made this compassionate cat grumpy at times, though usually only regarding the Clans. If she starts talking about them, she expects silence and respect, and will snap at anyone who interrupts her or has something bad to say about the Clans. Even if it's about another Clan, and even if the moment before she had been telling them of a horrible deed done by that Clan. Even with the destruction of the Clans, she remains loyal to GalaxyClan, and longs for the old days. She knows, though, that her old bones will never take her farther than the edge of her Twoleg fence now, though. Once a determined cat that couldn't be convinced to back down once she made up her mind, she now spends her days content, but lonely, in her little garden.



History:

    Blackcloud was born to a lovely, gray, long haired queen in new-leaf many, many moons ago. She was the last born in a litter of five kits. It is unknown who her father was.At a young age, she became drawn to the medicine den. She found joy in helping their medicine cat, Raindrop, sort through herbs and heal sick cats. It was obvious long before she even turned six moons old that she would travel the path of a medicine cat. Nothing could have made Blackcloud happier than healing her clanmates. She was naturally compassionate towards all cats, and empathetic with those in pain, whether it was physical, mental, or emotional. She had been an apprentice medicine cat for roughly 36 moons (3 years) before Raindrop became far too old to continue, and retired to the elder's den. He still gave omens from GalaxyClan, but his sight as well as his nose were failing him, so he stayed out of the medicine den.Blackcloud was getting on in years herself when the great battle tore apart the Clans. At 60 moons (5 years) she was nearly ready to go to the elder's den herself. The Clans had been restless, though, and even her apprentice Icestorm could sense that something wasn't right. Both were told to remain in camp the night of the gathering that the battle raged. When one of their clanmates came swimming back to the island out of breath, Blackcloud held her breath.“They're all dying!” the queen had wailed, alerting every cat in all of StreamClan—meaning all the nursing queens, kits, elders, and the two medicine cats, as the rest were at the battle. “The Clans won't survive this, we have to run!”Blackcloud didn't want to believe that. The Clans weren't supposed to fight at the Gathering. But as she gazed at the night sky, she saw stars falling rapidly, so many of them, and she took it to be a sign that warriors were dying out there. Defeated, she and Icestorm helped the cats they could to escape into Twolegplace and the surrounding areas. Before she left for good, she stopped by Raindrop's gave to tell him goodbye.Once she got into Twolegplace, she was quickly taken in by an elderly lady, who calls her “Boots” due to her white feet. For the past seven years, Blackcloud has lived here. At first she ventured close to her old home, but as the moons dragged on, she has stayed closer and closer to the Twoleg nest. Despite no longer being part of a Clan, and having not heard from GalaxyClan since the battle, she still recites herbs, the warrior code, old stories, and anything that could help her remember her old existence. She holds on to hope that one day, the Clans will exist again.



Fun Facts:

  • She is based off my real life cat Boots.

  • I've actually written part of a story about the Clans being destroyed and Blackcloud telling a couple of kits about what it was like.





Social:

    Mother:     Unnamed QueenFather:     UnknownSibling(s):     2 toms, 2 queensMate(s):     NoneKit(s):     Every kit she has ever seen is her adopted kit.Acquaintances:     None IC.

Also, if you want, you could also do this way like Example #2 of Template #1. Please don't copy these auditions; they are special examples to show you how it would look. Put some thought into it!
