Not unlike his father, Birchpaw reflect his father in everything besides build. Clearly of slender build, Birchpaw his lithe but with a enough girth to keep him steady when trekking across through GorgeClan's territory. Birchpaw remains sure-footed and confident in his stride regardless of the terrain he covers.
Birchpaw's brown tabby and white coat is the only genetic marker that proves him to be related to Brackenclaw. Nothing else similar to his sire, not that Birchpaw minds too much.
He much prefers to have no connection to his father and often daydreams his father is a much more noble warrior.

A tom-cat that alludes confidence with every step, Birchpaw remains humble. It's perhaps a small blessing for GorgeClan that Birchpaw is nothing like his father. The Clan would surely crumple at the paws of the two of them.
Friendly to the point he can be over-baring, Birchpaw enjoys being the center of attention. An prime example of an extrovert. He is known for making friends of all shapes and loyalties without issue. Birchpaw has a talent for making cats feel comfortable with them, he makes it a goal to memorize one thing about a cat so that he can make them feel special.
The inner drive to make others feel important is fed by his father's manipulative nature. Birchpaw witnessed countless times his father belittled someone for his own personal gain, it never sat right with Birchpaw. Thus his father's actions propelled Birchpaw into being a bit over-baring with his friendly nature and perhaps a touch naive about the harsh realities of the world. A bit of a hopeless romantic, Birchpaw envies some of the older warriors who are settling down. While he understands it will come in time, he can't help but wonder what it will be like to be a better mate then his father ever could be.
Never the less, Birchpaw retains his youthful outlook on life and a bubbly personality.
The unlikely pairing of Willowbreeze and Brackenclaw will forever be an enigma for GorgeClan. The idea of love between them is laughable, more likely Brackenclaw convinced the she-cat to be his mate in a last ditch attempt to have a son. Granted such a son, Brackenclaw ridiculed Willowbreeze for birthing only a single kit. It never occurred to the father of many that his son heard those awful comments which allowed for resentment to grow.
Willowbreeze in an effort to soothe her son's hurt. Willowbreeze encouraged him to turn the other cheek. She taught the young tom to be kind and friendly, often the one to prompt him to go make friends. Birchpaw sought out his older half-siblings, curious about their adventures. Asking them about their warrior duties was easy practice for starting conversations with just about anyone.
Brackenclaw remained unimpressed by his son's actions but Willowbreeze refused his influence on Birchpaw. Often cutting off visits between the two and by the time Birchpaw left the nursery Brackenclaw's parenting had no effect on him.
Excited to be an apprentice, Birchpaw holds on to a budding affection for his clan's medicine cat apprentice. A feeling he refuses to talk about and instead hoards quietly in his heart, for safe keeping.
