Cardinalstar is a very devoted and nurturing she-cat, especially in her work as a newly proclaimed leader. She is vocal and won't stand down so easily - able to take on challenges with no fear. She has a soft spot for kits and the elderly, presenting a motherly aura when around them. She is a naturally kind clanmate who sees the best in others and can pick her own battles. She is very blunt and will say things how they are, whether good or bad. Her need to help clanmates is strong, and she will do anything in her power to make one healthy again. She struggles to accept that some things won't go her way, especially deaths of those close to her. Cardinal is seen as composed and hardworking in her duties, but around family or friends she's much more relaxed free-spirited, always up for a silly adventure or chitchat. She loves meeting new clanmates and making connections all around, but stab her in the back, and she will become a force to reckon with. She is currently adjusting to a fresh chapter of her life since becoming TawnyClan's leader.

  • Positives: Caring, devoted, hardworking
  • Neutrals: Blunt, free-spirited, insecure
  • Negatives: Opinionated, protective, set in ways

  • Cardinalkit is born in the SequoiaClan nursery to Waspstrike and Dandelionbelly with her siblings Wolfkit, Doekit, and Nectarkit
  • Cardinalkit and her siblings are close-knit and spend the majority of their time in the nursery
  • not much else is known about her kithood

Apprenticehood [6-12 moons]:

  • Cardinalkit becomes Cardinalpaw, and her siblings become Wolfpaw, Doepaw, and Nectarpaw
  • Cardinalpaw is mentored by an older warrior named Manukasizzle
  • Manukasizzle trains her hard, but she excels in every aspect of her training

  • Her siblings see her behavior change but she ignores them, desperate for her warrior ceremony as Smokepaw promised to ask her to be his mate
  • Cardinalpaw continues to help collect herbs for the medicine cats and train with Smokepaw

Warriorhood [12-27 moons]:

  • Cardinalpaw attends her warrior ceremony and becomes Cardinalcrown, the suffix given for her slender head, which was almost shaped like a crown
  • Almost immediately, Smokepaw, now Smokethrash, approaches Cardinalcrown and asks her to be his mate
  • Cardinalcrown immediately accepts his proposal and they become mates
  • She spends the first view moons of their mateship in a lovestruck bliss, unable to see what cruel intentions Smokethrash is hiding from her
  • Her siblings are upset that she chose Smokethrash, but she ignores their warnings
  • At around 21 moons, Cardinalcrown expresses interest in having kits, but Smokethrash kills any hopes of that becoming a reality - which upsets her
  • Cardinalcrown is out hunting one day and finds Smokethrash with her friend, Goldenstream, ultimately cheating on her
  • Smokethrash is caught off-guard when Cardinalcrown appears, angry that she saw them together
  • He tells Goldenstream to leave so he and Cardinalcrown can chat, which leads to him shoving her head underwater in the clan's creek, forcing her to almost drown
  • He says it is a warning for if she tells anyone what she saw, and from that point on, Cardinalcrown is afraid of him, but he won't let her leave his side
  • Cardinalcrown is glued to Smokethrash's hip for the next moon and a half, and his true colors start to show
  • Smokethrash ends up killing SequoiaClan's leader, Swanstar, with a bundle of death berries
  • Nobody suspects it was Smokethrash behind Swanstar's death until he publicly announces it to the clan, claiming StarClan has hand-chosen him as leader
  • At first, the clan doesn't believe him, but he uses Condorflight, their deputy, to prove his point by slashing his throat and killing him
  • Smokethrash uses multiple threats and soon, the clan is forced to obey without question and fear for their lives after promoting himself as Smokestar
  • He spends the next few moons courting other she-cats and continuing to brainwash Cardinalcrown
  • She begins confiding in her brother, Wolfsedge, who is caught by Smokestar. He kills her brother in cold blood and she is left devestated
  • He starts spending his nights punishing Cardinalcrown, giving her new scars for each time she's "disobeyed" him. He saw it as a form of discipline to keep her with him
  • He even goes as far as to use public humiliation, scarring Cardinalcrown's body and forcing the whole clan to watch
  • She endures a couple of moons of relentless torture and sickeningly twisted love from Smokestar, who continuously reminds her that kits aren't in the cards, as they would ruin her figure
  • Cardinalcrown's ribcage and stomach are covered in crisscross scarring, including the lower half of her chest
  • But, at 26 moons, Cardinalcrown becomes unexpectedly pregnant, and the kits are Smokestar's
  • She is terrified to tell Smokestar, and he quickly catches on that something's wrong when she develops a bigger appetite than normal
  • Smokestar orders the medicine cat, Weaselstripe, to give Cardinalcrown herbs that will kill the kits inside of her. Much to Cardinalcrown's dismay, he threatens her life if she doesn't do as he says
  • The kits are removed from the picture, leaving Cardinalcrown to spiral into a depressive state. She ignores everyone for the next moon
  • However, with the changing seasons, the melting snow brings on a sudden flash flood
  • The flood is extreme and engulfs the camp when Cardinalcrown is out patrolling, and she and her patrol flee the area. Almost the entire clan is swept away
  • Cardinalcrown and her sister, Nectarkiss, escape the flooding forest, but their sister Doedust had drowned as did Smokestar
  • The sisters spend the next few moons traveling, leaving their birth clan
  • Cardinalcrown ends up finding a new territory that's been burnt into ruins, seeing a new clan is developing there
  • She convinces Nectarkiss to come with her after the clan, BurningClan, accepts her as a warrior

Medicine Cat [28-32 moons]:

  • Cardinalcrown has joined BurningClan as a warrior alongside her sister
  • She is apprehensive to start over, but she knows this will be good for her
  • She has met Slimblaze, BurningClan's deputy, and finds herself feeling some strange emotions when around him. Something about him has her returning like a moth to a flame
  • Cardinalcrown knows her duties as a warrior, but lately, she has been receiving strange dreams...
  • She soon recognized her calling to become a medicine cat and traveled to the Star's Mirror, receiving her blessing from StarClan
  • She returned to camp as BurningClan's new medicine cat at 32 moons
  • The clan was currently rebuilding and things were looking promising, but eventually, some drastic events occurred
  • Cardinalcrown received a strange dream of a fox tearing through the camp with wild eyes and this concerned her. She found Slimblaze and discussed this dream with him
  • The next few days, things became abnormal as cats were becoming sick and acting strangely
  • Cardinalcrown quickly realized a virus was spreading through the camp, infecting cats and turning them into "zombies"
  • The healthy cats were forced to flee or become infected, leaving the camp desolate and destroyed as the zombified cats were creating havoc to find food - which included their own clanmates
  • Cardinal fled from the camp as much as it hurt to leave, not knowing if anyone else escaped
  • She was heartbroken over the loss of Slimblaze, only naturally assuming his death back at the camp
  • Traveler [33-35 moons]:
  • She traveled for the next few moons, residing in some random clans and tribes that would welcome her in. She continued practicing medicine during this time.
  • Cardinalcrown came across a clan called TawnyClan, who was desperate for a second medicine cat. She was welcomed in immediately and brought to Hawkstar
  • Hawkstar took an immediate liking to Cardinalcrown, inviting her in and letting her get adjusted to TawnyClan
  • She explained how she wouldn't stay long and she was only passing through
  • Cardinalcrown continued her practice as a medicine cat, lingering outside of TawnyClan's territory. She feared becoming tied down again after Smokethrash's brainwashing and BurningClan's disbandment.
  • She spent only half of a moon in TawnyClan, becoming closer with Hawkstar. The tom invited her into his den some nights, thus strengthening their bond.
  • He nicknamed her "his traveling Red" because she didn't always stay in one spot within TawnyClan's territory.
  • Hawkstar confessed his feelings toward her, to which she eventually accepted. He persuaded her to share his nest with him, for behind his leader facade, he had a whole different side to him.
  • She agreed to become his mate, but only if he would announce it to his clan. He hadn't found love until Cardinalcrown and she felt it was wrong that he was keeping her a secret for the past few weeks.
  • By the time Hawkstar was working up the courage to make his announcement, a plague befell the clan.
  • Cardinalcrown wanted to stay and help, but Hawkstar sent her away, fearing the clan's retaliation that he had a "mate" who he didn't speak about.
  • She left TawnyClan's territory altogether, heartbroken by Hawkstar's rejection
  • She stumbled upon RidgeClan at 34 moons where she was welcomed with open arms
  • She worked as their medicine cat for awhile, befriending a fellow medicine cat named Wolfwrath
  • The two formed a tight-knit friendship right off the bat, as they had natural chemistry together
  • Wolfwrath quickly confessed his feelings toward Cardinal, to which she reciprocated them
  • Wolf was ecstatic, soon convincing Cardinal that they should leave RidgeClan and travel together as he's never been outside of the clan before
  • The pair leaves RidgeClan and continues on their way, passing through uncharted territories. This allows them to bond more and grow even closer, their romantic attraction toward each other in full swing
  • At around 35 moons, they encounter a badger, and Wolfwrath fights it off so Cardinalcrown can escape. She follows his instructions and runs away, not looking back. She is heartbroken when she doesn't hear or see him immediately
  • Cardinalcrown continues traveling, heartbroken by her broken relationship with Wolfwrath, but she presses on and comes upon a lake to fish
  • She has no luck fishing, but she soon discovers a wounded feline within a shrouded rainforest
  • She quickly realizes it was her former lover, Hawkstar.
  • He explains to her, whilst dying, that she must lead his clan. He views her as a savior in his dying eyes, claiming their clan is now dwindling in numbers and need guidance, as his wingman was killed after slipping on rocks
  • He gives Cardinal vital information and she has no choice but to find this clan, reciting to them what Hawkstar told her. They are devestated by the leader's death, but quickly see hope in Cardinalcrown. They view her as their savior and only hope to thrive
  • Violetleaf, a scrawny Queen then approaches Cardinalcrown, explaining that she was sent by StarClan, therefore she must become their new leader
  • Cardinalcrown is baffled by this declaration, but she accepts, traveling to TawnyClan's starclan place, known as The Starcliff. She is approached by StarClan in her dreams, who declare she must be granted nine lives, allowing her to save the clan from starvation and loss of hope
  • She returns to the rainforest as Cardinalstar, and addresses the clan of this new era. The surviving cats - which are slim - are all ecstatic to have new leadership, believing this is the sign they needed to keep thriving
  • Leader [35-PRESENT]
  • TawnyClan is steadily growing in numbers, and Cardinalstar is viewed as a respectful leader who shouldn't be trifled with

Cardinalstar in Love

When in love, Cardinalstar is very attentive to her mate's needs and what he's lacking. She strives to make him smile and be good company for him - always seeming to know what to say. She can become formal and authoritative in a flip of a switch, especially for work-related or dire predicaments. Cardinalstar keeps a clean composure, but any harm to loved ones or threats will surely break her resolve, and her need to help others will surge into the spotlight.
