PROFILE

Described by others as a gentle, caring soul, Gorselily is currently a loner of no Clan living and travelling with her mate Redsun. She is an ex-mentor of BriarClan, where she taught Skipperpaw briefly before the Clan's demise. Though she is a generous and caring she-cat, most of the time the thing that other cats notice is her injured leg. Still, she's adamant in proving that she's just as worthy as the rest of them, and she aspires to lead a Clan someday and start a family with Redsun.

APPEARANCE

Gorselily is a tall, graceful, and beautiful molly with a white base and light ginger markings. She has a very slim and angular figure, although it's hard to tell because her fur is very silky and fluffy and pads her figure out well. It is rather fluffy but slims out around her midsection and her lower legs. It has a soft texture and has a scent similar to sweet berries.

Her coat consists of a soft white base with a pale ginger mask and cape and darker ginger markings. Most of her body is white, but across her back there is a pale cape with darker spotting. A ginger mask spreads across her face asymmetrically, and she has two small orange freckles below her left (the viewer's right) eye.

Her tail is light ginger with dark stripes and a white tail-tip that stands out against the warmer tones that came before it. Her ears are tall and end in a rounded point without any tufts. She doesn't have any visible ear fluff. Her cheek fluff is spiky and has two main tufts on each side. Gorselily's eyes are a light, warm green color, which contrasts with the more orange tones of her overall pelt.

Her most noticeable feature, however, is the injury on her left front leg. However much she attempts to hide it when interacting, the dark scars and bruising are very visible. There is one main gash and a couple smaller ones around it, each of them a dark maroon. The fur near it is short and stubby and she is unable to grow fur back over the wound, making it all the more painful and obvious.

  • Weight: 6.8 lbs
  • Height: 9.9 in.
  • Length: 17 in.
  • Breed: Moggy [mutt/unknown]
  • Scent: Berries and flowers
  • Gait: Limping; but somewhat stable and quick on her feet

PERSONALITY

Gorselily is a pacifist by heart. Loving, compassionate, and motherly, she's the sweetest cat you'll ever meet. She's always willing to stretch out her neck for you and would bend over backwards for those she cares about. After her injury this nature was somewhat subdued, but with encouragement from the medicine cat and treatment she's gained back her old charm. She's very adaptable, as could be seen after the accident, and conscientious. She has a strong moral code, and wants to serve her Clan the very best that she can.

However, the staring and whispers did get to Gorselily under the surface. Before the accident she was a lot more outgoing and sociable, but afterward she was a little shy to speak her mind. She thought that others would judge her based on her leg rather than her words, and so she simply stopped speaking as much around others. She's very polite, not in a curt way but in a genuinely polite and friendly way. She cares quite a bit of about others' image of her and has deep-rooted insecurities, not just about her physical appearance.

Due to her shyness Gorselily tends to be quite the conformist. If another cat tells her to do something or expresses a popular opinion, it's likely that she'll do the same simply because she wants to be accepted by others. Due to this she's quite easy to manipulate, something her peers and even kin took advantage of when she was younger. She's not necessarily naive - she recognizes when she's being toyed with - but she backs herself into a corner she's unable to get herself out of, and is constantly thinking about what the other cat might say or do if she stopped agreeing with them.

  • Positive: Motherly, compassionate, adaptable, conscientious

FEARS/PHOBIAS

  • Ornithophobia[Severe]
    • Ever since her injury Gorselily has had a phobia for larger birds. Small birds, if she can see them, don't frighten her, but if she hears one cawing she will be afraid. freezing up, labored breathing, widened, dilated eyes, heart racing
  • Thalassophobia [Moderate]
    • If Gorselily is thrown into deep water, it will cause her to panic. As an apprentice she loved swimming, and she still does enjoy basking in shallow pools. But with her injury and leg's low mobility, she cannot swim well, and in deep water would likely drown. panic, heart racing, flailing limbs
  • Acrophobia [Mild]
    • Gorselily cannot climb. She can jump well, but as she cannot control how lightly she gets down from a height falling from them is a danger for her. As such, climbing and heights are a phobia and fear of hers. mild shaking, uneasiness

ROMANCE

  • Sexuality: Omnisexual demiromantic
  • Relationship Status: Happily taken
  • Love Language: Physical touch, words of affirmation, acts of servitude
  • Fertility: 87%
  • Current Mate/Crush[es]: Redsun
    • Former Mate[s]/Crush[es]: Walnutsnap
  • Physical Interests: Soft fur / Flowery or nature scents / Taller frame
    • Gorselily does not care much for pelt color or pattern, but she is inclined towards certain physical attributes like texture and scent of her partner. One of her love languages is physical touch, and bristly and tough pelts are odd against her silky fur. She wants to be able to curl into and up with her partner, so they would likely be taller than her with soft fur. She also likes flowery or sweet scents. Her favorites are sage, lavender, pine and rose.
  • Mental Interests: Compassionate / Affectionate / Ambitious / Persistent / Honest
    • Gorselily wants a partner who is similar to her. She needs a compassionate and affectionate person in her life, there for her to vent and talk to and someone willing to show their love to her physically. She also wants someone willing to push forward and someone ambitious to be by her side as she chases after her dreams.
  • Physical Disinterests: Rough and patchy fur / Ungroomed fur / Unnatural/human scents
    • Though Gorselily isn't super picky with appearance, ungroomed or rough fur is a total turn-off for her. She wants to be able to cuddle with and lay against her partner, and rough or patchy fur makes her skin prickle. Any unnatural or human scents also put her off, as they smell sharp and odd to her.
  • Mental Disinterests: Self-centered / Quiet / Dishonest / Aggressive / Manipulative
    • Most of Gorselily's mental turn-offs are to be expected: she doesn't want a partner who's self-centered or manipulative, or one who jumps to physical violence as their first option. But she also feels she couldn't be with someone who was very quiet or dishonest, because she wants to be able to have communication and share her feelings and thoughts with them.

TIMELINE

KITHOOD

  • Gorselily seems hesitant to share.

ADOLESCENCE

  • She does not wish to comment.

ADULTHOOD

  • Rather late, Gorselily is promoted to a warrior by Frecklestar and given her suffix. She is praised for her tenacity and gentleness.
    • However, soon after her ceremony, BriarClan disbands. Gorselily decides to leave with Redsun, a friendly and chipper tom-cat she'd befriended earlier in the year.
  • Gorselily and Redsun act as a small Clan, hunting for one another and claiming small areas of territory. They grow very close in this time, and Gorselily develops a small crush on him.
  • Redsun confesses after a few moons that he likes Gorselily. Shocked, but happy, she embarrassingly admits she has a crush on him too. From this point on, the two were mates.
  • Gorselily is pregnant with Redsun's kits. She is overjoyed, but a little put out at Redsun's protective attitude. He doesn't allow her to leave the den anymore, carrying prey and water to her. Frustrated, but also slightly flattered, Gorselily chides him and he reluctantly takes her exploring one last time.
  • Gorselily gives birth to three kits, two females and a male. The male was the runt of the litter, and Gorselily expected that she might lose him to the first cold night. However, it was one of the females, and not the runt that she had lost when morning came. Gorselily swore that she'd protect the remaining kittens whatever it took, and rarely left the den in fear that the kits would fall sick or hungry.
  • Gorselily named the female Peachkit, for her soft ginger coat, and the male Duckkit, for his waddly gait due to having very long legs and a stubby body.
