: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.

can we rp her and leapfern??
PatchyFallenstar Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You bet! Would you start please? :)
k-eiko Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014
sure. uvu

Leapfern didn't want to stay in a stuffed den while getting her wounds treated by the medicine cat, it wasn't comfortable at all. The silvery she-cat limped her way towards a shady spot in the camp, hoping to relax there; it had been a few days since the war had ended and it had caused a few to die or be severely injured, she was among those cats. Leapfern managed to lay down without hurting herself too much, letting out a shaky breath in the process and closed her eyes, hoping to take a peaceful nap but she couldn't because she still heard the screams of those cats and the claws clashing together, it was the worst day of her life and she knew that there were others who'd agree with her as well. She opened her eyes and blinked, she saw blood in front of her and squealed in surprise as she quickly jumped up and stood there for what felt like days, it was just her imagination. "Just settle down..." She told no one in particular, shakily sitting down and wrapping her tail around her paws. "It's just your imagination."

hope thats okay. c:

((that's perf))

"Sorry? Were you talking to me?"

Kestrelflight flicked her tail as Leapfern had suddenly sprung up from what seemed like a rather unrestful nap. She'd said something Kestrelflight didn't really catch; the somali she-cat tilted her head curiously. "Are you okay, Leapfern? You don't look well. Do you need me to help you to the Medicine Cat Den?"
k-eiko Featured By Owner 5 days ago
Leapfern shook her head, obviously not wanting to go back in there. "No thank you," She managed to say in a strained voice, she cleared her throat. "Uh," She felt embarrassed for some odd reason; she hoped that she didn't come off as a mouse-brain towards the somali. "Just a bit shaken from the war, you know?" The silvery warrior let out a sigh, disappointment flashing over her features for a few moments, quickly expiring into a face of kindness, reassuring the young warrior in front of her. "But thanks for being kind, I appreciate it." Leapfern wondered if she would stay around long enough to have a conversation with her, she hoped so. "How are you doing?"

Would you like to do a quick RP with Springpaw?
PatchyFallenstar Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah let's do it!

You start >:3
sparkeythehamster Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014

Tail twitching, Springpaw glanced around the Apprentice Den. Lostpaw had lied to him and Blossompaw wasn't making any sense, so his only choice was to ask the other she-cat Apprentices in Camp and see if they would be any more helpful.
This wasn't exactly the easiest task in the world for him, he wasn't used to talking to girls, and those he did often talk to were rude to him, but he had to try and report his findings back to Mothpaw.

Dizzypaw and Bumbledpaw had told him this ridiculous story, and it was a story in all honesty that he thought perhaps Kestrelpaw might be able to solve for him, considering Birchpaw just rolled his eyes at him every time he approached as politely as he could and demanded that he tell him exactly what these 'Cooties' were and why only he seemed to mind catching them?
PatchyFallenstar Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Kestrelpaw was busy plucking a pigeon of it's feathers, the same pigeon she'd caught on her patrol with Hazefire and the others. She'd been so excited when her mentor had told her she'd earned the right to eat the prey she'd caught, so she wanted to make sure it was perfect. Unfortunately, preening the birds of their feathers never proved easy, and she was covered in the tiny down feathers, some of them getting stuck in her fur.

She looked up half-interested as some of the other apprentices tumbled about in the den; Mosspaw and Scorpionfang were talking to each other just outside the entrance, Sootpaw and Leopardpaw were arguing in the corner, and Springpaw was looking around. The somali went back to her business.
sparkeythehamster Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014
Suddenly spotting Kestrelpaw, Springpaw snuck his way over to her, making sure that Birchpaw wasn't anywhere in sight, he spotted Leopardpaw, one of Lostpaw and Birchpaw's sisters, but he'd never seen her talking with them, so it was unlikely it would get back down the line.
"Umm... excuse me... miss?" He wasn't sure how else to address one of the senior Apprentices, and usually he wouldn't have approached one, "I... have a question?" 

She seemed like a nice she-cat, at least as far as she-cats went, "Well, I'm on a mission from Mothpaw to discover the cause of these... well... 'Cooties'..." He felt a little embarrassed saying it, now he was starting to doubt it was actually a thing, "...and, I heard from Bumblepaw you may have some insight on how the whole thing works?"
