Feline Kingdom

on Thu Jan 04, 2018 3:35 am
In a large forest full of old ruins resides a mass of organized feral cats who found shelter in each of the four ruins scattered throughout the land, here they have created their own separate societies where each cat has a place; whether it is to fight, hunt, lead, advise, heal, teach, these cats rely on each other for leadership, survival and knowledge and would not have it any other way.

There are four kingdoms that rest in this forest of old ruins. Erstwhile, Sassoon, Eskium and Farenvale. Which kingdom do you belong to?


Rank:
Higher-class
King: the ruler of the kingdom typically makes decisions and solves civil issues that arise amongst his citizens

Queen: the mate of the king and the secondary ruler unless the king dies she will retire if she has had a litter of kits old enough to take the place as main ruler. The queen may also retire if her mate chooses to retire as well

Prince/Princess: the oldest of their siblings, first in line for the throne and will take over immediately if the king or queen should die or retire. They are normally expected to pick a mate of royal blood but there is an exception if a cat of higher-class has not reproduced with a mate (excludes High Priests/High Priestess, and nobles) or if there is not an available higher-class cat from a neighboring kingdom with a current alliance to the Prince or Princess’ kingdom

Nobles: the youngest children of the king and queen, usually next in line for the throne if their older sibling has taken the place of the king or queen

Advisor(s): the advisor or advisors are the king’s or queen’s right hand, if they should need a second opinion on something these cats will give them advice on what should or shouldn’t be done. They also inform the king or queen of any arising problems both inside and outside the kingdom, as well as making small decisions

Royal guards: these cats stay in the main ruins along with the rest of the higher-class citizens to serve and protect the king, queen, their advisor(s), the nobles, and the prince or princess

High Priest/High Priestess: residing in the temple ruins they are expected to be able to communicate with the Divines and receive messages from them, at some points the king or queen may call upon them to assist with decisions if the advisor is away or if they need any divine intervention. To be able to continue to focus their spiritual connection the High Priest or High Priestess must refrain from any activities outside of their duties. They are forbidden to hunt, reproduce, kill, and fight

Military-class

Commanding Officer: the leader of the kingdom’s military, gives and finalizes orders. Usually stays in the barracks ruins unless a battle should arise he or she will normally be leading the troops

Lieutenants: second in command of the military, able to give smaller orders but is capable of giving larger ones as long as the Commanding Officer finalizes it. The lieutenants typically lead patrols and set up small camps outside of the kingdom to keep watch and give out orders to the troops they choose to go with them if word of a long-term threat outside spreads throughout the civilization

Veterans: any senior members of the military, if the lieutenant should die or retire the Commanding Officer will choose a veteran to take his or her place

Infantry: normal troops of the military, generally participate in patrols and some are chosen to accompany a lieutenant to any camp outside of the kingdom. The ones left behind are used to guard the kingdom in case a threat makes it way past any patrols. Some might be currently training a recruit

Recruits: any younger military troop that is still going through training

Scouts: members of the military that normally travel outside of the kingdom to report any threats to the Commanding Officer, sometimes some of them might be chosen to accompany hunters in case they need protection

Mid-class

Note: Mid-class cats reside in the other areas of the ruins, this however excludes any mid-class cats involved in religion they will reside in the temple ruins with the High Priest or Priestess as well as excludes Scholars, whom reside in the library ruins, and healers who reside in the infirmary ruins

Hunters: cats that are usually lean with longer legs than normal but this does not always have to be the case; their only purpose is to hunt so they do not receive any battle training. They have been trained by retired hunters whom have taken their place as a scholar

Scholars: usually the record keepers, these cats are the most intelligent of the society; they can either be students who have chosen to become a scholar, an older and wiser cat or a retired hunter. Their duties are to pass on knowledge to younger cats known as students, and keep track of historical events; their teachings consist of hunting, religion, medicine, and history

Students: Kits who are old enough to eat on their own as well as speak and are capable of being without their mother

Priests/Priestess’: strict followers of the religion in this society, one of them will be chosen to become a High Priest or Priestess when the current one retires

Monks: students who have decided to pursue religion rather than become a hunter, healer or scholar

Healers: cats more educated in the knowledge of medicine, they treat sick and wounded cats and may occasionally be called out of the kingdom if a military member or hunter is wounded outside of it

Messengers: these cats do not need any training; their only duty is to carry out messages to other kingdoms or cats that need to travel outside of their own (i.e. military-class members or healers that have been called out)

Low-class

Kits: kittens who are still too young to become students

Elders: older cats that have retired from their place in the kingdom, this also includes retired kings and queens

Nurses: any female cat currently nursing and raising kits


Divines:
These are the gods the cats believe in.

Orion: the God of war, the only one of the divines that was once a mortal but through his heroic deeds was accepted into the court of the divines

Reina: the Goddess of light

Tidos: the God of strength, brother of Erdos

Erdos: the God of speed

Larenell: the Goddess of love and beauty

Sarus: the God of the hunt

Names: Nero

Gender: Male

Kingdom: Sassoon

Age: 40 moons

Rank and class: King, high class

Appearance:


History: Originating as a prince from the neighboring kingdom Farenvale, Nero's arranged mate was to be the youngest daughter of the Advisor; unfortunately the kingdom had suffered a massive fox attack where some had managed to get in, in all the chaos his would-be mate had suffered severe wounds and later died in the infirmary. Wanting him to still have a mate of royal blood his father called upon the former king and queen of Sassoon to see if they had any available offspring. As luck would have it, they had an eldest daughter with no mate, but that would mean Nero would have to join Sassoon and become their future king. Nero's father agreed to this terms and the young gray tom was on his way to a new life.

Personality: Nero was very adventurous in his younger years, while he enjoyed the good life of a high-class cat the young tom couldn't help but sneak out of the kingdom every now and then to explore the rest of the territory despite the risks. He was and is still friendly to every cat that he comes across, that doesn't pose a threat; because of his good nature he is very easy going and lenient.

Name: Ivory

Gender: Female

Kingdom: Sassoon 

Age: 38 moons

Rank and class: Queen, high-class

Appearance: 

History: Before she was the queen, Ivory was the princess of Sassoon but unfortunately had no potential mate for none of the current high-class cats had reproduced yet but once her parents heard that the prince of Farenvale was in need of a mate they were ready to arrange for the two become mates so that Sassoon would have a future king. At first the young she-cat was against having to be committed to someone from a rivaling kingdom but eventually learned to accept him as well as his young daughter. 

Personality: Unlike her mate Ivory is the opposite of adventurous, she quite enjoyed the luxurious life of being a princess and refused to associate with any cats outside of the higher-class of the kingdom. As she matured she grew a little out of her stuck-up, prissy phase but still retains a little bit of it, and would rather her adopted daughter Nieve act more elegant and proper.

Name: Nyx

Gender: Male

Kingdom: Sassoon 

Age: 60 moons

Rank and Class: Commanding Officer, Military Class

Appearance:  

History: Not much is known about Nyx's past, he never tells about it and certainly seems to prefer to not remember it and as far as he's concerned he has been in the Military since he could remember, and for the most part he is right. Originally when Nyx was only a kit he had longed to be a hunter, he liked the idea of chasing something and catching it; to him it seemed to be the more rewarding of the positions in his kingdom. Unfortunately his dreams of being a hunter had never came true, he was too heavy set and ultimately would have been too slow to catch an ideal amount of prey but due to his size it was suggested that he train to become apart of the military. The young feline was gladly accepted by one of the infantry cats, and while Nyx wasn't very enthusiastic about this but trained hard regardless. 

He later gained his proper place in the infantry, and had faced many battles giving him his rough outer appearance, as he grew older he moved up to veteran and not long after moved up to Lieutenant after the previous one had chosen to retire. A few years later the commanding officer had also retired and left the responsibility to Nyx; he has been commanding officer since. 

Personality: As a young cat Nyx was very curious and imaginative but despite that he had a generally aggressive attitude towards other cats but he would never unnecessarily attack any cat of his own kingdom unless they attack first. No one really knows why he's mean the majority of the time, or how he ended up that way but some do believe that he has a gentle side that he protects and hides from others in fear of getting hurt emotionally and they're right. This old cat would rather stay emotionally distant than become emotionally close with any other feline he comes across, even though he sometimes longs to have some sort of companionship that involves an emotional connection.

Name: Misty

Gender: Female

Kingdom: Sassoon

Age: 23 moons

Rank and class: Advisor, Higher-Class

Appearance:  

History: Having her mother as an advisor for Sassoon it was pretty obvious that Misty would soon follow in the older she-cat's pawsteps to aid the king and queen in decision making, and the young she-cat wouldn't have it any other way. Her father whom had been part of the infantry on the other hand wasn't so thrilled about her taking on, what he viewed, as an easy task; he would have preferred that she make herself more useful and become one of the many troops in the military-class, because of her intelligence he dreamed of her becoming a great commanding officer as far as strategy goes. 

Though he doesn't agree with her choice, her father continued to love her and did his best to support her and keep quiet about his thoughts. 

Personality: Misty is a reasonable and intelligent feline, she is mostly kind but she does have a stern side if she finds a flaw in one of her fellow advisor's suggestions to the king or queen. However she is not without fairness and will allow others to speak their mind, but there are those who find her later critiques, on their opinions or suggestions, quite pretentious and condescending even though she makes an effort not to seem that way. 

Extra: It is often speculated that she was named "Misty" due to her different colored eye that happens to look somewhat clouded over at first glance.

Re: Feline Kingdom

on Thu Jan 04, 2018 3:48 am
Name: Nieve

Gender: Female

Kingdom: Sassoon

Age: 4 moons

Rank and Class: Princess, High Class

Appearance:

History: Nieve was first-born to the current king and queen of the Sassoon Kingdom. Being the oldest, and only kit for the moment, she was trained in the ways of being a princess and what her life was going to be once she took over for her parents once she was old enough or they retired or killed before she was ready. This grew boring for the young princess very quickly. She didn't like the fact that she was stuck inside all day learning about things she'd have to do once she took over. She wanted more than that as any young cat would. Because of this, she ended up sneaking out of the castle one day without anyone noticing her, much to her relief too. From there, she explored the kingdom she was going to rule over one day and even made a few friends upon doing so. The first two cats she came across where two hunter class twins named Jinx and Spell. Nieve quickly bonded with the siblings and became friends with the lower classed felines. Soon enough, she had to return back to the castle. She bid farewell to her new friends and returned home. She got into trouble for it, but she didn't regret any of it. To this very day, she still continued to sneak out of the castle to see her friends and the world.

Personality: Nieve is a young she-cat that is adventurous. She loves to explore and that normally leads her into getting into some trouble. Unlike most princess' she isn't so uptight and snobby. She's a friendly cat that just wants to be normal and not treated with such high respect all the time. She loves making friends and she's not afraid of getting dirty. She has a big heart and willing to do the right thing, even if others might not thing it is the right thing to do. She'll even go against her parents' wishes if she feels she's doing the greater good in the end. She puts others before herself and will stick up for those who are being mistreated. While she may not look it, Nieve is a tough cat that won't take things laying down and will fight until her dying breath. She is a caring young feline that is loyal to her kingdom, but this doesn't mean she'll turn her nose away from a cat from one of the other kingdoms in need. She'll help anyone she comes across. She has a bit of a afraid of loosing her parents before she's ready to take over the kingdom. She holds great respect for Jinx and Spell and she'll hang out with them when she can.

Name: Bandit

Gender: Male

Kingdom: Sassoon

Age: 26 moons

Rank and Class: Royal Guard, High-Class

Appearance:

History: As a young kit, Bandit was eager to begin his training as a royal guard. From a young cat, the kit would often sneak out to watch the older guards train. One night, he was caught. Instead of getting into trouble like he expected, the head of the guards saw potential in the young feline. He was let off with a warning that he was not to be out there unless someone knew, as he seemed eager to learn the ways of being a Royal Guard. The head guard, a black she-cat named Eclipse, spoke to the king and queen if she could personally train the young cat once he was old enough. He was allowed to be trained by the very feline he looked up to and took his new job seriously once he started his training. He passed his training with flying colors and joined the ranks of the Royal Guards once he was finished.

Personality: Bandit is a loyal member of the Royal Guards. He takes his job seriously in protecting the more higher-ranked cats. He doesn't take kindly to those slacking on the job; often quick to snap at them to pick up the peace. It's rare for him to show a more less serious side, but it does happen from time to time. He'll do whatever he can to protect his current charge(s) and will give his life for them. Deep down, Bandit is a rather caring young feline behind that tough outer shell of his. Few people have seen that softer side of him, however.

Re: Feline Kingdom

Name: Eclipse 

Gender: Female

Kingdom: Sassoon

Age: 36 moons

Rank and Class: Royal Guard, High-Class

Appearance:

History: The black she-cat was born into the kingdom of Sassoon. Her mother was a Royal Guard while her father was a hunter. While she liked both jobs, she leaned more towards following in her mother's pawsteps and becoming a guard. She grew up along side Ivory, becoming friends with her future queen. She promised her friend that once she became a guard and the older cat became friends, their friendship wasn't going to change at all. She promised that she would protect her and her future family with her very life. That promise never changed, even when Nero and Nieve came to the kingdom. She was a little wary of two cats from a rival kingdom being around her life-long friend, but she came to accept the two as her king and future queen, vowing the same promise to protect them as she had Ivory moons ago.

While she was training some of the younger cats that were going to become future Royal Guards, she found Bandit spying on them. She questioned him, wanting to know what he was there and found that he wanted to see what it was like to be a Royal Guard before he was even old enough to begin his training. She let him off with a warning before she spoke to her rulers to see if she could personally train Bandit once he was old enough. She was allowed to and she shaped him into a fine young guard.

Personality: Eclipse is an easy going feline. She's not as strict as some cats might think she is. Don't let that fool you however, she is no stranger to pushing the younger cats in training to their limit, but she's fair about doing it. She's loyal to her kingdom and will fight to the death to protect those she is in charge of or anyone for that matter. She's not want to loose her temper very often, but if one pushes her buttons, she'll snap or hiss at the other that ticked her off.

I like how we don't have a campfire for this roleplay.

Re: Feline Kingdom

Today at 12:57 am
The small white she-kit purred as she stalked towards her two friends. As far as she knew, Jinx and Spell were unaware of her creeping towards them. The princess smiled as she inched ever closer to the twins. Once she thought she was close enough, she bounced on the one closest to her with a playful yowl. She kept her claws in as she purred, looking down at her victim.

"I caught you!" Nieve purred loudly before she scrambled off her friend. Her face suddenly shifted from joy to worry. "I didn't hurt you, did I? I'm sorry if I did."
