Thoth (Tagged by ) 1.
Thoth was born in Egypt; he still believes in the Egyptian gods and holds many of their ideals and he more or less refuses the idea of the gods that the Empires believe in. He's just kind enough to not argue about it with his fellow Empiremates. 2.
Thoth is one cat that loves to tell stories. Ask him about the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt and he will spin vivid stories; everything from tales of the God he was named for all the way to the stories of war among the Gods. 3.
He is my third EBC character, and originally he was designed to be half Pallas cat, and he was meant to go to Ice Empire. After consideration and lots of time just trying to understand exactly what kind of cat he is (personality and physically), I decided he belonged in Lightning Empire. 4.
Thoth still carries a thick Egyptian accent, which he is a little bit self conscious about. Despite this, he is not at all self-conscious about anything else having to due with Egypt, from his Eye of Ra symbol painted over his eyes to his Winged Solar Disc Necklace. 5.
When Thoth became an apprentice of Lightning Empire, he didn't really know anyone well yet. His parents had left and he was alone. Soon, he was apprenticed to Ryder, and he met Neri and Fovos. He grew attached to both of them, but only one came back after the war; Fovos was left missing. Somehow, Thoth knew that she wasn't dead, though he couldn't explain how. He had a silver Winged Solar Disc necklace made and when he met Saliaribus at a Gathering, he passed the necklace onto the one-eyed Gladiator, knowing that he would have a better chance of rescuing Fovos than he himself would. For some reason, he doesn't think he will get a chance to see Fovos again, but he has taken to wearing feathers in honor of her, and the lessons she taught him. 6.
His name, Thoth, is the name of the Egyptian god of writing, magic, science, judgement of the dead, and maintaining the universe. Thoth (cat) doesn't feel nearly so godly, but he tries hard every day to be the best cat that he can, hoping to make his Godly counterpart proud of him, as well as his parents back in Egypt. 7.
He is most self-conscious of his eye sight, which comes and goes. He has an eye illness that mutes colors and blurs his general vision at random times. He trains every day by himself to be able to function well without his eyes, in case he ever looses his eyesight for good. 8.
Thoth is very mature, even though he is an apprentice. He much more prefers words to claws and teeth. But he also understands that violence is necessary sometimes. But really, all he wants is peace.Maishia (Tagged by )
Maishia was born and raised in Africa, in a city called Alexandria. It was in this city that she learned to hate humans, and she still does to this day. 2.
Maishia, after moving to Massilia, became the Pillow Thief; she never saw anything like a pillow before and so she has become quite obsessed with them. If you go to her home, there is a giant mountain of pillows in a corner. Most of these pillows were stolen from some poor unsuspecting victim that didn't protect their pillows properly. 3.
She does have a bit of a crush on Marus, but she doesn't know how to approach anything along the lines of that subject, so she has resigned herself to her life as a loner inside the city. 4.
Maishia doesn't live with humans or any other felines; when she got to Massilia she sought out an abandoned home that she could make hers. Her home doesn't have a proper door anymore, and many of the windows are gone as well. Semi-difficult to find if you aren't looking for it, you would have to wind your way through quite a few alley-ways to get to it. 5.
Maishia is reluctant to capture Empire cats. Having spent her whole life before Massilia in a cage, fighting when told and being fed when the humans chose it, she understands better than many what it is to have your freedom taken away. She is mortified by the fact that Massilia cages cats. 6.
She did help to capture one cat during the raid on Massilia, but she is far from proud of it. She has decided that the least she can do for the captured cats is try and sneak pillows and some food in for them whenever she can. 7.
She has a secret soft spot for cubs; in fact, she has had a litter of cubs once before, during her time in Alexandria. They are still in Alexandria. These cubs are being used as leverage to keep her in Massilia and obeying orders. (This was something that I added into her character recently [I knew there was something keeping her in Massilia but I wasn't sure what until now] and someday I might make her cubs adoptable) 8.
After discovering the captured felines in Massilia and talking personally with one of them, she has come to believe that every Hunter in Massilia, including herself, so long as they actively, well, hunted the Empire cats was deserving of that war. She doesn't hate the Hunters, she couldn't hate cats that only did what they were told, they weren't any different from her. But she couldn't condone the atrocities they had committed in putting cats in cages. (Mai has extremely strong feelings about cats being caged, as well as humans in general, due to her past being thoroughly abused and mistreated and caged. Were she born and raised in Massilia, she would probably be on the Hunters side all the way)
Polemos (tagged by )
Before Polemos was a Gatherer, he was a Coliseum fighter, a very good one at that. During his time in the Coliseum he didn't lose a single fight. During his Coliseum life was also when he learned of what he calls 'The Monster'. He has no better way to describe it; the 'monster' is something that surfaces when he fights, something similar to bloodlust. Because of the Coliseum fights, he always associates the 'Monster' with death; more specifically him killing another cat with him barely realizing it happened. In all reality, he is the monster. 2.
When he was young, his owner bought another clouded leopard, one that he fell madly in love with. They had a litter of cubs; the cubs were sold, and are currently floating in the space of imagined characters and full blown characters; I keep thinking about making them into adoptable characters, but my list of things to draw never seems to end. o.o 3.
Polemos still blames himself for the death of his mate, Jasmine. He hasn't taken a mate since, but he does carry his memories of her fondly; he became a Gatherer to fulfill her wish for him to become a teacher rather than a fighter. 4.
While I have been meaning to write full backstories for every one of my RP characters, Polemos is the first of only two of my characters to have part of his story up on deviantart right now (the other being Saliaribus in EBC). 5.
Polemos does have an earring. He was born in Rome to parents that he never met; if he had siblings he never got to meet them. They pierced his ear to put a tag on it for sale. When his owner, Alexander, bought him, he changed the tag out for a small silver hoop earring both as a way to give the young cat character, and to hide the hole the cut into his ear. Polemos is extremely fond of his earring and still wears it today. 6.
Polemos is one of (probably) few who still loves the human who owned him during his time in Rome. His human was kind and genuinely loved Polemos. And it was his human that set Polemos free in the wild. If asked, he will tell you that he owes his life to his old human owner. 7.
He is my second RP character ever made for RP groups on deviantart (the first would be Caedis). Despite this, Polemos is still kind of making himself, I'm sure he still has some secrets that I don't even know about yet. 8.
He doesn't sleep in the dens with the other cats unless it is a particularly stormy night. Usually he prefers the comfort of sleeping up in the branches of trees to on the ground.
COR CharactersWillow (tagged by )
Willow has a crush on Colton, although she won't admit it to anybody but herself. At this point she thinks Colton thinks of her as a close friend, and she is to afraid that she might ruin their friendship to try and change that. 2.
Before she was Medic for Sigma, she was a Enforcer with the Dogs of Paradise. She really enjoyed her life as an Enforcer. It was the death of her sister at the paws of the other Enforcers that made her decide to be a Medic so that she wouldn't have to watch anyone else die ever again. 3.
Willow has investigated many many herbs and poisoned herself a grand total of 5 times testing out unknown herbs on herself. No stranger to getting poisoned, you can rest assured that Willow knows exactly how to treat all kinds of poisonings! xD 4.
Willow discovered the use of sap from various plants and trees can be used for aromatherapy, she spent a long time collecting natural bowl shaped rocks to hold her saps. She also lines most of the nests for sick dogs in her Medic den with various calming smelling flowers. 5.
Everyday she is teaching herself, she wants to learn all she can, so that she can be the best she can for her District. 6.
She is a very jumpy dog, anyone sneaks up on her and she jumps with a very high pitched squeak. But nothing getting a high pitched or stranger sound to come from her than bugs. If another dog comes near her with a bug she will run from them. 7.
Willow isn't the biggest fan of swimming, because where there is water there is mud, and where there is mud, there is the possibility of getting mud between her toes, which grosses her out to no end. 8.
When she isn't busy at work with her herbs or with healing someone, she is a very playful dog. But... she's more of a prankster than she would seem; she loves to do things like push other dogs into a stream or throw snow at their backs.
You don't have to if you don't want to, but if you do then you get magical platter of internet cupcakes!
