Pinepaw is a small brown tabby with small patches of white under his chest and on his toes. He will get much longer and lankier, but he wont get much bigger size wise and will always look a little awkward for his size. He has massive yellow eyes that are very expressive and tend to give away his feelings.

Pinepaw is a soft cat - both physically and mentally. While he isn’t the kind to get offended easily, he often chooses to talk out his problems instead of fighting them out. He doesn’t care for sparring and personally prefers to spend his time collecting pretty stones and feathers which he gives to his sister and mother. By far, he is closest to them above anyone else and enjoys spending time with them - whether it be hunting for prey or exploring the territory.
In later moons, Pinepaw’s innocent will be lost and he’ll be faced with a lot of tough decisions, but for now, expect him to be easily excitable and amused by everything and everyone. He has very, very little contact with his older siblings, but those that are involved in his life tend to pick on him for being so childish and soft.
He does not do well with authority but it mostly comes down to the way his mother raised him. She let him enjoy his life as a kit and spoiled him, making him difficult to get along with for those who wish to make him work for the things he wants in life.
A strong warrior by the name of Blackjaw and his dainty queen, Willowfeather, had been mates for a long time. They’d produced several healthy litters, contributing to the growth of GorgeClan in countless ways. Their children were strong fighters and skilled hunters - at least the ones that Blackjaw claimed as his own were, anyway. Known for being impatient and strong-willed, his kits were held to (sometimes) unrealistic expectations. He often bullied his kits and his mate into seeing things his way, so Willowfeather followed silently in his shadow. Of his first litter, only two of the three are still in contact with their parents. From six different litters, only seven kits chose to stay in contact with their parents and when Bonestar’s reign began, the rift between the family only grew worse. Blackjaw proudly followed his leader into battle. The few of his kits that respected their father and his opinions did too.
When Bonestar’s fall took place, Blackjaw was one of the cats driven out. His mate - who was soft spoken and quietly followed in his shadow - was finally freed from his grasp. But just after his disappearance ten moons ago, his queen - Willowfeather - announced that she was pregnant once more with their final litter.
Eight moons ago, a litter of two kits was born. A boy and a girl. They were named Pinekit and Cypresskit. The two were raised - for the first time - under the loving care of Willowfeather. In previous litters, Blackjaw insisted that his kits only be allowed to stay with their mother until they were weaned and after that, he insisted his queen return to her duties, leaving the kits to fend for themselves except for when he would appear to teach them how to fight - play fight as he liked to cover his tracks by saying. Due to the kindness and love that young Pinekit and Cypresskit were given, they were resented by most of their siblings and their other was cut off from the remainder - those that stayed after Gorgeclan fell apart after Bonestar’s rule. Since, Pinekit has become Pinepaw and has spent his time dutifully training with his mentor - Poppytail. The she-cat has recently gone missing with whispers that she ran off with the kits of a rogue in her belly. Now he awaits to be assigned a new mentor.
