age; 0-1 moons
clan; Auroras Faithful
first glance; Small black and white tom with light orange eyes
appearance; Arctic is a black and white tom, the same colour as his mother. Around his eyes, his ears and the top of his head are black, carrying into a long sweep of coal black down his back, ending with his tail. Underbelly, paws and his muzzle are all soft ivory white, along with a stripe between his eyes. His nose is black, with a splodge of black next to it, as if someone has coloured in his nose with black chalk and accidentally smudged it onto his muzzle. His ears are slightly too big for his head, though everyone is sure he will grow into them, with fine white hairs growing out of them. His whiskers are the same white, spiraling off in all sorts of directions. His eyes are one of his nicest features, a light orange colour, almost like caramel with a hint of hazel, like his mothers, with sharp black irises in the centre of each. These can give an intense, piercing stare and are a slightly odd shape, more oval than the normal circular shape. One eye is slightly squint, but he can see out of it perfectly, it only affects his appearance. Light paws hold sharp little white claws and his white muzzle holds a perfect set of little pin-prick teeth.
persona; Arctic's personality is quite similar to his mother, Solstice's. Though he is gentle and kind-hearted most of the time, he can be a little sarcastic, especially when the other kits and, when he gets to that stage youngsters, cant keep up. He was born with the gift of intelligence, and is very quick thinking and logical but cant understand why it sometimes takes others longer to understand, especially as he has a very intelligent mother as well. He hopes when the time comes he will get a good mentor who will teach him well and not treat him like a kit, especially as he is so clever. He likes to focus on what he is doing, so will be a good youngster for any cat to teach, as he is always willing and determined. He has been brought up to obey everything about Auroras Faithful and is very supportive of it indeed. He does not like to see cats who don't believe it is right and he will always stand up for his own opinion. Through all this though he is a kind and friendly tom who tries to be nice to everyone, although if you fight with one of his friends or family be prepared for an argument. He loves his mother dearly and looks up to her immensely. She is his heroine.
past; Arctic was born to Solstice and Cross of Auroras Faithful, the only kit they had. He doesn't remember his dad, as Cross was killed in a hunting accident before his eyes were properly open. A faint memory of the night he was born he can still remember, although obviously he couldn't see. Happily suckling, lying beside his mother in the warmth of the nursery he was suddenly pulled away from her. He squealed in protest and herd a faint murmur from his mother but then he was carried outside into the cold. He squealed and wriggled piteously, not wanting to be taken from his mother by this strange thing that smelt so different from the warm, milky scent of Solstice. He felt them climbing upwards and still mewed for his mother, but knew she wouldn't hear him now. He was suddenly aware of being held in the air, the wind whipping round his small body as he was buffeted over what he know knows is the Spire. He heard the cats sound their relief and was quickly returned to his mother. He heard them tell her the lights had shone and then they left, never bothering him again.
Now Arctic is a moon old and beginning to cause all sorts of mischief. He can't wait to become a youngster and is eager to know who will mentor him, though deep down he knows he will miss his mother when he leaves her side to sleep with the youngsters instead of the nursery.
