physicality — ☼☽
✧ DARK CINNAMON TABBY WITH OLIVINE EYES
— juniperthorn is lithe and nimble, a rather handsome looking tom in terms of physique, colours and pelt patterns. his body is fit for climbing trees as a skyclan cat should be- he has good balance and is relatively fast. despite what statistics might suggest he is a much better fighter than a hunter- this is due to mentality, as he is quite the tactician and tends to think too much when hunting.
— his eyes, often narrowed and simmering with some negative emotion- be it critical analysis or hatred-fuelled paranoia- are a bitter shade of olivine. there are often storms brewing behind the grey-green windows to his soul, paired with the almost permanent scowl darkening his features.
✧ INJURIES / ILLNESSES: addiction to poppy seeds, intense paranoia
— long scar spanning the length of his spine
— three slash-like scars across the left side of his cheek
— nicked left ear
— bite mark on back left thigh
mentality — ☼☽
✧ ENTJ, THE COMMANDER
— juniperthorn is bold and a rather fearless opponent, stopping at nothing to protect a cause he truly cares for. to skyclan he is undyingly loyal, having been born and raised to live and breathe skyclan values. born to lavenderstar, it is fitting he bears the traits of a natural-born leader- he is efficient, a perfectionist, and enjoys leading and commanding others. he is self-confident in his physical abilities and knows his strengths, despite what his mind might tell him about the weaknesses within himself. he is also what some may call a workaholic, tending to work to take his mind off things instead of dwelling too much on his feelings.
— the tom is also extremely logical, tactical and critical- he is talented at strategy and problem-solving. juniperthorn is a fierce and difficult-to-down warrior, as his love for strategy and battle motivates him to be ready for any move; he will not retreat in battle and will fight until his opponent is as injured as he is.
— however, he is not without... several unfavourable traits. he is both bark and bite- he spits venom and will not be afraid to poison others without regard to how his words may sting. incredibly easily angered especially when he or those close to him are disrespected, he often speaks before he thinks and does not dwell in regret for whether his scorching words may have left a mark. though he is book-smart, he's not socially clever, and often doesn't think about feelings before he speaks- he enjoys being sarcastic and oftentimes believes he is in the right, which means he often doesn't apologise for his actions unless specifically told to.
— juniperthorn is bitter and much prefers alone time- he is undeniably a staunch introvert. his oversensitive bitterness is a guard for his fear of being hurt- nightmares have tormented him all of his life, and to avoid being harmed in the real world he uses his tough and prickly front to drive people away.
