  • Gemclan

    The clan of beauty.



    History


    More than 1000 moons ago, a ragtag group of cats left their territory in pursuit to create their own home. They came across a pool of clear water within a cave, both filled with gems that glittered different colors. Their leader, Sila, paused to collect one of the sparkling objects. After a moment of fishing it out, her eyes lit up in immediate happiness. The citrine gem seemed to glow, and instantly she felt immense happiness. She was overflowing with joy, and she felt at peace. The ragtag group eventually settled a little ways off of the pool of water, which they then named the Starpool. This was the start of the beginning of the clan known to be Gemclan.



    Territory


    Gemclan's territory is made of hills and flat plains scattered with trees and flowers. Surrounding the camp are various white-flower trees, in almost a circle. Think of a wide oval orchard. Inside the camp are hidden holes that lead to the dens of whichever rank. The entrance of the dens are small hills in the ground with an opening, which are plastered with rocks on the outside of it. A few yards away from the entrance to the camp is a dead oak tree, which is known to be the Tree of Remembrance.

    Not too far away from the ending of the flat plains and hills is a river, which neighbors a forest. It is to the west of the camp, and not far from it is a neighboring clan called Spruceclan. The forest is usually dense with plants and vegetation but it is subject to drought, so usually the clan survives of of rabbits, birds, and fish. If one follows up the river, they will reach the beginning of a snow-capped mountain. At its base is a cave that is home to the Starpool. The top of the mountain is home to a clan called Summitclan.

    To the east of the camp is more open flower fields that leads to a lake. It's abandoned, complete with an old broken fishing pier. Close by is a dirt path that leads to several cottages.



    Ceremonies


    On the day of a cat's 6th moon, they are taken to the Starpool and select their very own gem. The gem is then taken to the Gemologists who will then create a pendant out of the gem, and thus it will become a necklace the cat will wear. The pendant is to represent the cat's soul and well-being, and in life-threatening times it can 'give a boost of spirit' to the wearer or others. This pendant will serve valuable for future ceremonies.


    If two cats love one another and desire to become mates, one will propose by laying down their pendant in front of the other's paws and bow to the ground. The cat will agree and the other one will rise and the other will place their pendant back on them. The two will then travel to the Prophet and tell them of their proposal. They will then choose a date to hold the ceremony. On that day, the Prophet will say a few words and then the two will recite their promises to each other. Then, they will trade pendants for the remainder of the day and can spend the night at the Starpool.


    If a clan-member dies, they will be brought to the Tree of Remembrance. They will then be buried after the clan expresses its grief. The cat closest to the deceased member will take their pendant and hang it on a branch of the dead tree. After this, the clan is free to go back to the camp and rest. All patrols and hunting-parties will be cancelled.



    Religion


    Gemclan believes in Starclan and the Dark Forest like most clans do. They also believe that there is a middle-ground called the Black Sky, where cats go to be decided if they are fit for Starclan or not. Think of it as the equivalent of the Catholic Purgatory. Most who go to the Black Sky are usually murderers who've repented and paid for their sins but aren't worthy enough to travel to Starclan. Most Prophets can't communicate with the cats of the Black Sky regularly but they can hear whispers every so often. In unique cases some may be visited in their dreams by a cat of the Black Sky, but never to receive a prophecy. Prophecies are almost always received through Starclan.

    Gems


    The pendants of the cats are worn with either a gold, silver, or bronze chain that holds the gem itself. Usually, cats with high-rankings will take their pendants to the gemologist on the day of their ceremony and are given their necklaces back with an added charm or design to it. Like I stated in the ceremony section, on the 6th moon of their life one is taken to the Starpool and select their very own gem. The gem is then taken to the Gemologists who will then create a pendant out of the gem, and thus it will become a necklace the cat will wear. The pendant is to represent the cat's soul and well-being, and in life-threatening times it can 'give a boost of spirit' to the wearer or others. This pendant will serve valuable for future ceremonies. They will usually get a certain calling in their spirit and they'll know what gem to choose.

    PERSONALITY Stoneflower is a cat created for meticulous work. They make sure that they use correct amounts of herbs on wounds. They enjoy making friends, but only confides in a few. Even with their serious nature, they make morbid jokes. They are protective at a motherly level for their close friends, and is only willing to fight when they or kits and mothers are provoked. Ever since an accident, they've seemed a little off, using their job to distract them. They usually act differently around others, especially patients, than her close friends, acting a little more cheerful than their friends would say they are. Even though they need help sometimes, they refuse it, saying that since they're a healer, they can find something to help themselves.

    SCARS She has scars on her shoulder and back due to an accident.



    HISTORY Stoneflower was born as a loner, and joined the Clans because their father lived there. They were on a patrol by themselves at night, and so was their father, and he mistook them as an intruder and attacked, and instinctively, young Stonepaw defended themselves, although, fought a little too hard and when their father realized his mistake, he ran off, never to be seen again. Stonepaw was scarred from the fight and requested that they change their pathway, simply saying that they didn't want to hurt others, and wanted to heal others instead, not mentioning the details, lying that their father was killed by a badger. They became the Healer's apprentice, and it satisfied her, despite the many herbs that she had to memorize.
