He has thick, charcoal toned marbled stripes all over his body, with a noticeable swirl pattern on his flanks. He has thick, charcoal stripes running down his face and stretching down to his nose bridge, and stripes slashed across his cheeks.

He has lighter cream around his muzzle and paws, and a small blaze running down his chest. To contrast, his eyes are a brilliant shade of amber, with darker hazel tones around his pupils.

History

Kithood (0-6 moons):

  • Bulrushkit was born to Quillshade, a warrior, and Flintface, the deputy of MarshClan in the nursery, alongside his littermate Owlkit.
    • His kithood remains uneventful, except for a few leafbares where Greencough outbreaks frequented.
  • When Bulrushkit was 4 moons old, MarshClan's camp flooded. While trying to save the kits that were still in the nursery, Bulrushkit's father Flintface died when a current swept him away as he was saving his children. After the water seceded from the camp, MarshClan mourned his death.

Apprenticehood (6-12 moons)

  • Bulrushkit and his brother, Owlkit, were promoted to apprentices at the age of 6 moons and were assigned mentors and their new names. Bulrushpaw was paired with a gruff senior warrior named Wolfsnare, meanwhile his brother was paired with a fairly new warrior, named Fleckstream.
    • Bulrushpaw hated training with Wolfsnare, due to his strict and aggressive training style. If Bulrush faltered or lingered in their training, Wolfsnare would punish him. For about a quarter moon, Bulrushpaw would refuse to train with him because of this.
      • Wolfsnare finally talks to Bulrushpaw, telling him he's only tough on him to prepare him for being a warrior, and having to deal with much more aggressive, potentially violent cats. After the talk, Bulrushpaw decides to keep training with him, and becomes especially skilled in sparring and combat.
    • When Bulrushpaw is 8 moons old, a new apprentice joins the rank. A young she-cat named Mallowpaw, who happens to be the daughter of MarshClan's deputy, Cedarheart. The two become very close, often training together or sparring.
  • During a patrol, Owlpaw falls out of a tree and breaks his leg, leaving him incapacitated for over a moon. During this time, Bulrushpaw often visited him. There, he befriends the medicine cat apprentice, Sorrelpaw.

Warriorhood (12 moons-31 Moons):

  • After moons of intense training, Bulrushpaw becomes a warrior. He is given the name Bulrushblaze by Loonstar, for his brazen attitude, and quick temper.
    • A moon later, his brother becomes a warrior as well, given the name Owlwatcher. His ceremony was delayed due to his accident, and the moon of training he lost.
    • Mallowpaw also graduates, earning the name Mallowbranch.
  • Bulrushblaze and Mallowbranch grow closer, leading Bulrush to realize his affection towards her. The feeling seems to be reciprocated, but left unsaid.
  • His brother, Owlwatcher, becomes mates with a she-cat named Sycamorefrill.

Civil War (31 moons - 35 moons)

  • Bulrushblaze is 31 moons old when one day, on a regular hunting patrol including himself and the clan's deputy Cedarheart, they encounter a strange group of cats wandering the forest. They are wearing animal bones, and look sickly and malnourished. Their leader, a tom named Herodias, introduces himself to the patrol and asks for help. He says that his group has been wandering for days without food and water. Cedarheart obliges, and leads the group back to their camp.
    • After the group has been fed and given water, Herodias explains his group more, stating they are on a journey prophesied by their healer. They explain their religion to the MarshClan cats, and the MarshClan cats become enamored with Herodias and his beliefs- the Clan's leader, Loonstar, being the most enamored with him. However, Bulrushblaze remains suspicious.
  • Loonstar is often seen with Herodias around camp, the two constantly chatting, and Herodias even spending time in his den. Bulrushblaze asks Sorrelhusk why the group hasn't left MarshClan yet, since its been 2 and a half moons at this point in time. Sorrelhusk shrugs, and seems to share the same suspicion as him.
    • Then one day, Herodias enters Loonstar's den just like any other morning. However, Herodias has a more malicious intent. While hes talking to Loonstar, he pounces on the other tom, latching his fangs into his neck. Surprised by the betrayal, Loonstar begs him to stop before ultimately bleeding out, losing the rest of his lives in the process. Herodias lets out a loud yowl, summoning his cats to go after the deputy, Cedarheart. They drag the tom from his nest, and murder him the same way. MarshClan is shocked by this betrayal, some speaking up against Herodias. However, those felines were exiled or murdered if they dared to speak out.
    • Herodias appoints himself the new leader of MarshClan, and rules the Clan with a iron fist. He publicly denounces StarClan, and tells the Clan to worship the Dark Forest like him, or they face exile.
  • Enraged by the betrayal, Bulrushblaze, Owlwatcher, and Mallowbranch hatch a plan of a revolution. They go from cat-to-cat, making sure they were trustworthy and wouldn't go and tell Herodias. The rebels meet under The Great Alder at moonhigh twice a week, discussing their course of action.
    • The rebellion's ranks make up half of MarshClan, meanwhile the other half are sympathizers of Herodias' group.
    • However, one of the cats in the rebellion was a spy, and told Herodias. He attempted to hold a public execution of the three rebellion leaders, however, a fight broke out- beginning what would be called "The Battle of MarshClan."
  • The battle lasted for hours, Clanmates turning against Clanmates. During the fight, Mallowbranch was heavily wounded.
    • Bulrushblaze and Herodias have a showdown, beginning to fight. Herodias quickly overpowers him, pinning him to the ground. During the fight, Herodias bites Bulrushblaze's ear, ripping half of it clean off. Just as hes about to kill Bulrushblaze, Owlwatcher tackles the tom and saves his brother.
  • Bulrushblaze sustains a mortal wound to his neck and stomach, collapsing to the ground. Closing his eyes, he finds himself in StarClan. Standing in front of him is Loonstar, speaking to him alongside his warrior ancestors. Loonstar and his ancestors tell him his time is not over yet, and he must return to save MarshClan.
    • Bulrushblaze is resurrected, standing up from where he died. The cats around him are stunned that he stood, thinking that he died. Hoping to finally kill Herodias, he finds his dead body on the floor, entangled with his brother's also dead body. He yowled with anguish over his brother's death, however this changed to a yowl of victory, the war being over after Herodias' death.
  • The members of Herodias' group were given a choice- become prisoners, or leave and never come back. Most of them were chased out, including some of the Herodias sympathizers. MarshClan faced great loss during the battle, the majority of the warrior body being killed, or injured.
    • Many cats were killed during the war, including the Clan's medicine cat. Her daughter, Sorrelhusk, stepped up as the Clan's new medicine cat despite her young age.

Post Civil War / Leadership [36 moons - Present]

  • Shortly after the war, Sorrelhusk gave Bulrushblaze his nine lives after receiving the same vision Bulrushblaze did when he was on the verge of death. Now ordained by StarClan to be MarshClan's next leader, he was given his nine lives and the name Bulrushstar.
  • Three moons later, Bulrushblaze confesses his love to Mallowbranch, and the pair become mates.
    • Owlwatcher's mate gives birth to a single kit, named Piperkit.
    • Shortly afterwards, Mallowbranch becomes pregnant with kits.
      • She gives birth to three healthy kits, named Otterkit, Reedkit, and Yewkit.
  • Its been two seasons since the civil war, and MarshClan is struggling. Supplies have been low, and prey has been scarce. It is now the dead of leafbare, and an outbreak of greencough erupted through the Clan.
    • Mallowbranch becomes infected, and dies due to already being weak from starvation. Her kits also seemingly succumb to the disease. Heartbroken, Bulrushstar mourns the death of his mate and kits.
    • Sycamorefrill dies of greencough as well, leaving Piperkit to be orphaned. Seeing that she is his only family left besides Quillshade, he adopts her.
  • Over the moons, he takes Piperkit underneath his wing, treating her like a daughter. Although he did not mentor her, he kept a watchful eye on her.
    • She graduates to becoming a warrior, being given the name Piperhum.
    • Only five moons later, she is appointed as Bulrushstar's deputy, despite not training an apprentice.

Character [Username] (rank)- (Relationship with them, based on a colored dot system) Description of feelings on the character (from Bulrushstar's perspective). Note that the character's opinion will change as they grow old and bonds strengthen.

MarshClan


I love my clan dearly... MarshClan has been thriving ever since the Cult has been driven away. I hope it stays like this, and I hope to make sure it stays that way. StarClan has bestowed on me a great responsibility to lead MarshClan, and to keep it from harm.

Sorrelhusk [Fawnstep] (Close Friend/Medicine Cat) - BulletgreenBulletgreenBulletgreen / BulletyellowBulletyellowBulletyellow / BulletorangeBulletorange

Sorrelhusk and I have gone through so much together. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't be standing here today. StarClan guided us through the war, and still does to this day. She is a fine medicine cat, and I'm honored to also call her my friend.

Acaciastrain [Funeralderangements] (Acquaintance/Medicine Cat) BulletgreenBulletgreen / BulletyellowBulletyellow / BulletorangeBulletorange

I don't know Acaciastrain well, but I see that she is settling well into her role as a medicine cat. She has pretty large paws to fill, and she's doing a great job. I'd like to get to know her more, now that she isn't so busy tending to the sick.

Mudskipper [Ruevolution] (Friend/Former Apprentice) | dots soon

He's definitely an odd fellow but he has grown so much in the past few moons. I hope my teachings stuck with him after this amount of time.

Wolfsnare [NPC] (Former Mentor) | dots soon

My old mentor... I have mixed feelings towards him. Although he could be harsh at times, and treated me with such ferocity when I made the slightest mistake... he taught me well. He taught me determination and to stand up for what is right. I will be forever grateful for his teachings, I would not be the same cat without his mentorship.

Bayoubrine [xo.mar] (Senior Warrior/Ex-Fling/Strained Friend) | dots soon

Bayoubrine is a strong feline with a strong temper.. like me. Its unfortunate things between us did not work out, and I hope we can move past the tension. However, that she-cat confuses me. It frustrates me greatly.

Family


I don't have much family left anymore, except Piperhum and Quillshade. I miss my family dearly, and I hope they are looking down at me now.

Owlwatcher [NPC] (Littermate/Brother) - Dead-0 / Rose / BulletpinkBulletpinkBulletpink / Bulletred / BulletorangeBulletorangeBulletorange / BulletpurpleBulletpurple

You tried to save my life. Why didn't StarClan resurrect you as well? MarshClan feels empty without your raucous laughter filling camp. If only you could see your daughter now, shes grown up to have the same laugh as you. One day I'll see you again.

Mallowbranch [NPC] (Queen/Former Mate) - Dead-0 / Heart-1 / BulletpinkBulletpinkBulletpink / BulletgreenBulletgreen / BulletblueBulletblue

Ohh, Mallowbranch- my love. You were cruelly taken from this world too soon. Our kits followed your pawsteps to StarClan as well... I hope they are with you now. If only soon I can reunite with you in Silverpelt.

Otterkit, Reedkit, Yewkit [NPCs] (Daughters) Dead-0 / Rose / BulletpinkBulletpinkBulletpink / Bulletred / BulletorangeBulletorangeBulletorange / BulletpurpleBulletpurple

You three were only alive for just merely a quarter moon, and I loved you already. My children, I think about you every day, and what fine warriors you could've been. I mourn for you all each day.

Piperhum [Eyrepium] (Niece/Daughter Figure/Protege/Deputy)- Rose / BulletpinkBulletpinkBulletpink / Bulletred / BulletorangeBulletorange / BulletpurpleBulletpurpleBulletpurple

Piperhum.. my niece. I'm so proud of her. She has grown up so fast, and now she is by my side as my deputy. Although she is young, I see much potential within her. I hope she becomes a fine leader, and serves MarshClan well once I'm gone.

Cats Outside the Clans


I don't trust outsiders anymore, not since the war. Any wanderer would be smart to stay away from our territory, our warriors have made sure to scare them away at any time. I swear, if those cultist foxhearts ever come back...

Herodias [NPC] (Cult leader) - Dead-0 / BulletblackBulletblackBulletblackTurquoisebulletTurquoisebullet / BulletredBulletredBulletred / YellowgreenbulletYellowgreenbullet / Question-0

You. You were the manifestation of evil itself. You made a mockery of our Clan, tried to take it over, and soon paid the price. I hope you're rotting in the Dark Forest that you oh-so worshipped, pond scum!

Bulrushstar in Love

When Bulrushstar is in love, his protective shell from cats getting too close to him slowly chips away. He will struggle showing his affection at first, but eventually becomes more open with his emotions. He is a kind and doting mate, always tending to his mate's needs while keeping an eye on his own. He is much more open with his mate, although he still holds onto information that hes not quite ready to share.
