:bulletpurple: :bulletorange:Fallenstar - Kestrelflight feels that Fallenstar should be treated with the same respect and dignity that Timidbreeze shows him. She has only talked to him a few times, mostly regarding her training, and doesn't believe him to be a bad cat as everyone claims.

:bulletpurple: :bulletorange: Spiceshadow - Kestrelflight really admires the deputy, wishing she knew him better. She knows him as Sorrelfox's former apprentice, and any cat Sorrelfox is friends with, Kestrelflight wants to be friends with. Especially since he is considered Breezemoon's brother.

:bulletpurple: Breezemoon - Kestrelflight and her littermates have a special connection with the medicine cat as he checked up on them often. He and Spiceshadow are considered brothers.

:bulletblue: Barleyleap - Kestrelflight's adoring mother whom she loves with all her heart. Kessy wishes that she could train more with her, but since returning to the warriors' den, Barleyleap has been busy with the many chores around camp.

:bulletblue: Mossfire - Kestrelflight's dearest twin sister. She'd do anything for her, and will protect her with all of her might, no matter what. She was distraught when she heard about the incident between Mosspaw, Timidbreeze and the SnowClanner, but thanks to Timidbreeze, Mosspaw wasn't hurt. Mosspaw seems to have a good relationship with Scorpionpaw, to Kestrelpaw's delight.

:bulletblue: Saplingheart - Though he's adopted, Kestrelpaw has never thought of him as adopted, and considers him just as close as a blood related littermate. The two get along really well, playing and training together often. He kind of teases Kestrelpaw a lot, especially now that he's getting bigger than she is as he reaches his full size. She gets him back though, reminding him that she's actually got a tail.

:bulletblue: :bulletgreen: Timidbreeze - Kestrelflight has a really great connection with this Nursery Helper, considering Timidbreeze to be family. She was Barleyleap's apprentice, so the two are extremely close, and Timidbreeze helped out when Kestrelpaw and her littermates were kits. She even found excuses to let Sorrelfox watch them from time to time without it being suspicious.

:bulletblue: Sorrelfox - Kestrelflight's father. His identity is not known to many Clan cats, as he is public mates with Willowpool, having fathered her litter of kittens. Despite that, Kestrelflight has maintained a good, healthy relationship with the tom, often going on hunting trips or patrols with him in the party. His new kittens are nothing but excitement to Kestrelflight, and she treats them as full siblings.

:bulletblue: Auburnkit - One of Sorrelfox and Willowpool's sons. Kestrelflight is overjoyed at the announcement of his birth, and right away wants to establish a good relationship with the tom. She wants to play with him all the time.

:bulletblue: Burningkit - A more quiet of the SorrelWillow kits, Kestrelflight doesn't connect with him as well. Mossfire actually enjoys Burningkit's company more, as he is a bit more calm than his littermates. Kestrelflight still loves him though, and can't wait to help him train.

:bulletblue: Chasingkit - Kestrelflight is so excited to meet and play with Chasingkit. He's another SorrelWillow kit, and Kestrelflight wants to have a good relationship with him.

:bulletblue: Redkit - SorrelWillow's only daughter. Kestrelflight is going to treat her like a spoiled little sister. Kessy thinks Red is gorgeous, and is her BFF.

:bulletgreen: Creamrose - Kestrelflight thinks she's really cool, and likes to talk to her a lot. She wholeheartedly believes that Creamrose will follow in Patchstar's footsteps and make a great leader one day. 

:bulletorange: Frogsplash - Kestrelflight doesn't have much of a close relationship with the quiet DavePatchy kit, but she does think Frogsplash is nice. Kestrelflight is ecstatic for the new MoonClan kits that Froggy and Silversoul are raising.

:bulletorange: Scorpionfang - Kestrelflight doesn't know Scorpionfang that well, only that he's really close to Mossfire and treats her right, so Kessy likes him enough. He is one of the DavePatch kits, so Kestrelflight thinks he must be really valuable in the Clan, and treats him as such.

:bulletred: Bristlepaw - The only contact Kestrelflight ever had with Bristlepaw left a bad taste in her mouth, she doesn't get along with him at all. 

:bulletyellow: Thrushwing - They haven't talked much, but Kestrelflight thinks he's nice and hardworking.

:bulletgreen: Jackalpaw - When she was a kit, Kestrelflight had a crush on the young tom, but their lives were too different for them to spend too much time together. She can't wait to spend more time and reconnect with him now that he's an apprentice, but she probably won't like him any more than just a good friend.

:bulletpurple: :bulletpink: Birchpaw - Birchpaw is Kestrelflight's best friend and crush. She is absolutely devoted to him, and thinks the world of the brown tom. She wants to spend all of her time with him -- even when asleep. She built his nest close to hers, and was the first to take him outside of camp. They made promises to each other to make flower crowns and collect flowers for each other as apprentices.

:bulletgreen: Mothtrail - Breezemoon's apprentice whom Kestrelflight wants to talk to and get to know more. She wholeheartedly believes he does a great job as a medicine cat and supports him in every way.

:bulletgreen: Hazefire - Kestrelflight's former mentor, whom she idolizes to the highest degree. She is so happy to be paired with someone she gets along great with and has fun training with. And he's Birchpaw's father, so that kind of adds in bonus points for Kessy. Heehee.

:bulletyellow: Coyotepaw - Jackalpaw's jealous sister, Kestrelflight feels like she's walking on eggshells around her. She doesn't think Coyotepaw likes her much--though she will try everything to be friendly and nice to the she-cat.

:bulletgreen: Vixenpaw - Timidbreeze's daughter; when she was born, Kestrelflight gave her the name "Vixen" as an ode to Kessy's father, Sorrelfox. She loves Vixenpaw to death and has played a few games with her, and chatted about the other kits and apprentices with her.

:bulletgreen: Morningpaw - Timidbreeze's daughter. Kestrelflight hasn't talked to Morningkit much, but she loves her all the same.

:bulletgreen: Milkpaw - One of Timidbreeze's adopted daughters. Kestrelflight hasn't talked to her yet.

:bulletgreen: Dandelionpaw - One of Timidbreeze's adopted daughters. Kestrelflight hasn't talked to her yet.

:bulletgreen: Cottonpaw - 
One of Timidbreeze's adopted daughters. Kestrelflight hasn't talked to her yet.

~rp with kestrel to establish a relationship with her!~

|| TRIVIA ||

:bulletblack: Kestrelflight is a lot like Sorrelfox, both in looks and personality; she's very outgoing and playful. She wants as many friends as she can!
:bulletblack: She was modeled after a female American Kestrel, but then I changed her to look more like her somali father. Personally I like this one much better.
:bulletblack: She's my first character in this TWG that has amber eyes, so beautiful. She's going to have the best eyesight of all my characters, and is going to be the best mouse hunter.
:bulletblack: Squirrels are her favorite food.
:bulletblack: She is very fun to rp as, I'm really excited that she's an apprentice now!
:bulletblack: She's gone through four re-designs now, hahaha.

((Yay~ I'll start seeing as I asked~))

He felt a little foolish truthfully, having spent what was probably the last hour wondering around Moonclan's territory getting more and more lost, well he knew vaguely which direction it was back to Camp, but from here he couldn't give anyone directions to anywhere else.
He'd been looking for that flower field where he and Kestrelflight had put flower crowns together. It sounded rather awful, even to him that he'd never had a day that fun before or since. There was a wonderful sense of freedom to it, because he knew he never had to be anything but himself with Kestrelflight, an image he'd die of if any of the others knew about it.

It was those flowers that had gone missing from his nest, he'd been hoping to go and find some more from the same field as a reminder, but just couldn't find the right clearing. He blamed it on the colour of the leaves that were starting to turn yellow and amber shades, a few had even fallen to the ground. It had completely disorientated him, yes, that was the reason why he was lost.

((thank u))

Kestrelflight was a bit startled as she heard someone approach. She could hear faint murmuring, sounding rather frustrated, but the voice was too low to make out who it was. Despite her fur raising in alarm, she managed to keep her cool. Ducking down to hide herself within her field of flowers, she stalked forward, wondering who it was that had come by. She didn't think any of her Clanmates knew of this place, seeing as how it was near the side of MoonClan that bordered no one, so patrols were infrequent.

The intruder had moved away slightly, stumbling about in the opposite direction. Kestrelflight was about to abandon her tracking of the suspicious cat when she caught his scent.

Standing upright, and tilting her head slightly in confusion, she called out after him. "Birchpaw?"

He let out a sigh of relief as he finally stumbled across it, he knew this was the field. Finding places was hard, but remembering them was easy, so he was certain he was in the right place. Even though he knew he could just pick flowers from anywhere, it was important to him that they came from this field.
So Birchpaw began looking around for the brightest flowers, withdrawing to sneeze as he accidentally bent down to close to a flower with a rather strong scent.


He straightened and froze, the voice had come from behind him, and he knew he needed to turn and act natural. He turned. "Hi," his voice came out a little higher than he wanted it too, and with completely the wrong expression behind it.
"I mean," he cleared his throat and corrected himself, "Kestrelfeather, I didn't expect to see you out here?" He hid the flowers he'd already picked, behind him with his tail.

((kestrelfeather heehee ;) ))

Kestrelflight waved her tail as she approached the brown tom. Though she was a warrior and he still an apprentice, she noted that their heights were about equal. In no time, Birchpaw would be taller than she no time, his nest would be next to hers again in the Warrior's Den.

She smiled at the thought, her expression soft. "I love this place. I often come here on my patrols and stuff. It reminds me of..." she trailed off, shrugging slightly. "I didn't mean to startle you, um, I'm sorry."
sparkeythehamster Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
((Oh gosh, sorry ;^_^))

"No, no, I'm sort of the one intruding... I think?" He shook his head, then let out a sigh, "To tell the truth I was hoping to replace those flowers in the flower crown you gave me, you know, after Springpaw destroyed it," he gritted his teeth a little at the memory of the irritating spotted Apprentice, but he cleared his head again quickly, not wanting to appear to angry in front of Kestrelflight.

"You said this place reminded you of something?" He asked, focusing on what she'd been about to say instead of his own irritation, but he did show her the flowers he'd been hiding behind him to aid his explanation.
PatchyFallenstar Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
((s'all good hehehe))

Kestrelflight couldn't help but purr as her friend revealed that the flower crowns they made together held so much significance to him that he wanted to restore it. She frowned briefly at the thought that Springpaw had destroyed Birchpaw's, but shook it away and replaced it with a sheepish smile.

"Oh, this place always reminds me of you, is all. It's, comforting, I guess?" If Kestrelflight was being honest with herself she would have admitted that she came here when she could not be with Birchpaw; the flowers reminded her of his scent.
