Appearance:If Blackbird crouched in the corner of a dark room, he would be nearly invisible. His sleek body would blend with the shadows, his tall, thin legs mixing with the darkness. Even his whiskers, which are jet black, would be invisible. Two round orbs would stare out from the darkness, a thin, black pupil splitting through the center. These two perfect circles are colored a yellowish orange, like trees in the middle of leaf-fall.
When he steps out of the shadows, you can see Blackbird's slim, lithe body, and long tail. His narrow eyes dart back and forth, always alert, always watching. His black claws slide out from his paws, and you can see them glinting in the sunlight. This is not a warrior you want to meet in battle.
Personality:What are ThunderClan's traits? Bravery, honesty, courage. What are their skills? Hunting, fighting, climbing. What are their disadvantages? Swimming, running, temper. Blackbird is almost the opposite of any ThunderClan warrior you might meet.
This particular tom is calm, cool, and collected. He never loses his temper, but when his voice becomes cold and stiff, you know you're in trouble. He's intelligent, and very curios about the other Clans and their lifestyle. He's a technical kind of cat, always worried about technique over skill. He watches the performance more than the results.
Blackbird is stealthy and witty. He can sneak around unnoticed, and some may in fact mistake him for a ShadowClanner. He can be silent whenever he wants. He has excellent control over himself, and always seems to know what to say.
History:The one thing no one knows about Blackbird is that he has the blood of all four Clans running in his veins. It might explain his ShadowClan characteristics, but not the lack of ThunderClan traits. You see, each of his grandparents came from different Clans. The two on his mother's side were from WindClan and ThunderClan, while the two on his father's side were from ShadowClan and RiverClan. Because his parents were Half-Clan, his grandparents didn't want anyone to know about them, and happened to drop them both off at the ThunderClan border. Well, they grew up together and voila! She's expecting kits.
While his mother was in the nursery, Blackbird's father died in a fight against ShadowClan, and Blackbird was raise fatherless. Motherless, too, actually. She gave birth to five kits: four stillborn, leaving Blackbird as the only survivor.
He grew up like any normal cat, though rumours were passed around about his heritage. He didn't always feel fully welcomed, but he could usually convince himself otherwise. He became a warrior, and when a badger took the life of Dustwing, the former deputy, Blackbird took her place.
