PROFILE

Antcreek, also known as "Ant" by his friends, is a young adult genderfluid cat. He uses he/it pronouns. It does not believe in Starclan, having grown up without the Clans' religious beliefs. He has a low, monotonous, even flat speech pattern, which complicates things when it comes to joking with other cats, as some may not understand that he is kidding around.

APPEARANCE

Antcreek has thick, long dark ginger fur, speckled and splotched with taupe on its shoulders, back, legs and tail. His ears are the same taupe colour, tufted at the tips with ginger fur. His muzzle, tail and chest matches those tufts, being a lighter tone of ginger than the rest of his body. The patch of lighter ginger on its face is speckled with the darker ginger dominant on the rest of its body. His fur sticks up at certain places, which is inevitable considering the quantity and fluffiness of it. Antcreek's pink nose is spotted with grey, and its eyes are a dark golden yellow tinge. He has a nicked left ear, a scar across his nose and a few little nicks across his right cheek. He has a bulky, square form, with muscles hidden beneath a fluffy pelt. Its cheek fur is hanging and thick, often tickling his nose and requiring frequent grooming. His facial features are frequently set in a neutral, almost bored expression. He sometimes tucks two oak leaves behind his ear as a sort of special accessory.

GALLERY

PERSONALITY

Antcreek is an honest, albeit somewhat direct cat, who will say what he means and do what he says (unless he's making some drawling sarcastic joke, which does happen often). In its past home, he was often referred to by other cats as a loner, even though it is a great team player, whether in battle, hunting, or general tasks around the camp. He can fluxuate from taking on a leadership role and ordering others around to following orders to the last detail (even though you might have to recite to him the instructions more than once: its mind is sometimes too loud for it to snag onto the words others are saying). Antcreek takes things at face detail, and has a very flat tone of voice, which may complicate things since some cats won't catch on that he's joking if it says something rude. It is a skilled hunter, but still has difficulty dealing with fish and swimming, since it was not trained as a Floodclan apprentice, and was never taught how to act in the water (his thick pelt certainly doesn't help, weighing him down considerably when he is wet). He is also a nimble fighter, despite his large form.

TIMELINE

KITHOOD

  • As he was abandoned by his housecat mother at a very young age, Antcreek, or at the time "Ant", spent his kithood alone, stealing food from kittypets and raiding garbage bins when he could. It was luckily a strong kit, and it thrived in an alley behind a Pho restaurant. He had one friend, a young cat named Silas who used to roam the streets with him and bring him stolen twoleg shirts from closelines to thicken his nest with. Silas was also the one who gave Ant its name.

ADOLESCENSE

  • Silas and Ant soon became denmates, making a home for themselves in an old out-of-use wooden chest no one had bothered to bring to the dump. As Silas was a little older than him, he would teach Ant ways to hunt mice or rats that snuffled nearby. He also taught it how to fend off other stray cats who would come a little too close. During Ant's adolescence, he developed romantic feelings for Silas.

ADULTHOOD

  • In his adulthood before joining Floodclan, Ant and Silas still roamed the city streets and parks side by side, though Ant always felt a little behind. Eventually, Ant confessed his feelings to Silas, who said he reciprocated the feelings. However, after that confession, Silas would at first leave at intervals during the night, then would disappear for days on end. One of the times Silas crept away in the night, Ant followed him and found himself looking up at a twoleg apartment complex, where his supposed mate was sitting on a patio, happily nuzzling a housecat Ant had never seen before. Understanding immediately what was happening, he stalked back to their home, tail hung low. Once it was curled back up in its nest, it decided to disregard Silas' midnight meetings. I mean, Silas still loved him, and took care of him, so why would it matter..? His mate would always choose him over any old housecat. Ant would soon be proven mistaken, as Silas would start to seem bored while around him, and even made a nest separate to his own, while still acting like their relationship was perfectly fine if Ant asked him so. Ant finally decided to bring up Silas' expeditions, and to his dismay, his mate admitted flatly, casually, that he didn't love him any longer. Ant, holding back tears that Silas had always told him were a sign of weakness, asked confusedly for an explanation, and was met with nothing. He felt his melancholy slowly ebb, only to be replaced with searing anger and betrayal, and he lashed out at Silas, chasing him away from their home. As it hissed and spat at its former mate, sprinting blindly in the night, Ant accidentally chased Silas into the street that ran along their alley. With a deafening screech of tires and a blood-curdling scream, Silas was hit by a car, reduced to a clump of fur sodden with blood. Ant skidded to his side, tears welling up in his eyes. He sobbed into his former mate's pale fur, his wails echoing in the twilight.
  • After Silas' death, Ant couldn't bear to stay in his home any longer. He walked and walked for ages, the first twoleg shirt his former mate had ever given him in his jaws, and eventually found himself in a marshy forest. As he explored, he tripped and fell into a muddy creek, and was found, filthy and soaked from his head to his tail-tip, by a Floodclan patrol. It was taken to the clan's camp and was asked if it wanted to become a warrior. Ant, with nothing to lose, and nowhere to go, agreed, changing his name to Antcreek, for the creek that led him to meet Floodclan cats for the first time.
