Born to a loner and an ex-clan cat, Duck grew up with the knowledge of living in both worlds. His mother disappeared while he was still a kit and so he grew a close bond with his father. However as he grew into the equivalent of a young teenager his relationship with his father became slightly strained. The two would often bicker, causing Duck to venture off and spend most of his time with a group of loners close to his age. It was here where he formed his first romantic relationship, having fallen head over heels for one of the she-cats. Unfortunately his father began to start to show early signs of feline dementia, and would often become confused and disorientated. One night his dad woke up with the feeling that he had no clue where he was and walked straight onto the road where he was hit and killed by a monster. During this time Duck had slipped off to spend time with his newfound friends and will forever regret not being able to be there for his father.
A few more peaceful moons passed where he living with his friend group yet his unambitious and lazy nature was what caused his lover to end things, after confessing that she had fallen for a fellow member of the group. This caused him to snap and accuse the entirety of the group of betraying him before he angrily fled his makeshift home. He spent only a few days by himself before deciding that joining a clan would be the best thing for him. Knowing where WindClan was located, thanks to his father, he wound up at the border and was accepted by the past leader, Eaglestar. It was here that he would begin the rest of his life.
appearance realistic reference
A domestic short-haired brown tabby with green-gold eyes. His pelt is a mixture of light and darker brown, some of which hold a very faint red hue especially near his paws. Black stripes litter his body, He has a particular angled face that appears to look disinterested towards everything, although his warm eyes are always flickering with amusement. Sharp triangular ears sprout out from the top of his head, one of which has a wide nick cut out from it after a scuffle he had with other loners. White whiskers frame his dark berry pink nose. Overall he has a lithe build, built for running, but despite this he is fairly muscular and can hold his own when need be. He is also a very tall feline, with most of his height attributing to his long legs.
A smart-aleck tom with a mouth that often runs away from him. His 'speaking before thinking' mentality often leads him into some sticky situations or rubbing those he meets the wrong way. First impressions aren't exactly his strong suit but behind his layer of nonchalant aloofness is a cat who can easily grow attached to others. Some would even call him clingy once he develops a fondness. Becoming friends with him is incredibly easy despite what his words or actions may project.
AESTHETICS; Gold-tinted brown feathers, a muggy pond swarmed by bugs, wheat brushing against skin, hot summer afternoons, taking a nap when it's still light and waking up to darkness, damp hair
