North's family! Nov 19, 2017 22:40:53 GMT -6

North, West, East, and South were raised by two negligent parents who cared more about each other than their kittens. The kittens were left to learn street smarts on their own and were eventually tossed out. In the end, North and East had a disagreement and separated, leaving the West and South to go their own way.
Sex is non-negotiable but gender is totally up to you. I'll draw reference art at some point if you're interested in having art of them. Personality can be tweaked a bit, too, if you want to tweak it!
Cardinal - Mother (oO/BB/Dd/aa/Mcmc/SS/ll/DmDm/CC/ww/ii)
Cardinal is a striking older calico with a black base intertwined with ginger mackerel tabby. Her body is covered in white, save for her ears, tail, and a patch of colors on her hindquarters. Her eyes are green and her fur is long and luxurious.
She was born in Winter and she is 5 years old. She has had one litter so far (North and her siblings) and is probably up for more with her mate of one year, Adder.
Her basic personality is dismissive and somewhat self-centered; as a young kitten, she grew up with little support from her parents, and this has led to her being nomadic for most of her life (prior to settling down with Arrow). She feels that, since no one else will look out for her, she will take care of herself, and to that end, she is independent and high-functioning. She knows more than meets the eye when it comes to the streets and may have some knowledge of a variety of hiding places for taking refuge during a storm.
Arrow - Father (O/BB/DD/Aa/McMc/ss/Ll/DmDm/CC/ww/ii)
Arrow is a ginger mackerel tabby with no white and short, dense fur. His eyes are an orange hue. He has no other defining features outside of a scarred nose from his repeated fight-picking.
Arrow was born in Spring and he is 7 years old and has been mated to multiple cats during his life; however, he has decided to settle down with Cardinal and protect a tiny patch of their own personal haven.
He is rash, easily offended, and quick-thinking, making his relationship with Cardinal a bit of a whirlwind. He is passionate about her, thinking very highly of her, but won't hesitate to debate with her about small decisions. They aren't a very healthy couple, but, hey, I guess they're happy?
East - Brother (o/BB/Dd/Aa/Mcmc/Ss/ll/DmDm/CC/ww/ii)
East is a black-based mackerel tabby with white paws and a nose-blaze. His eyes are green, like his mother's and North's. His fur is thick and long, easily matted if not taken care of properly.
East was born in Summer and is 3 years old, the same age as North and her other siblings.
East has always been a roamer, with restless tendencies and an inability to sit still. He craves interaction and discussion and considers himself quite the debater. He tends to start debates at inopportune times or pushes the line when he should be leaving the other party alone. When it comes to loyalty, he is dedicated, but it's rare that he will make a trusting connection. He's a bit of a loner.
West - Sister (Oo/BB/DD/aa/McMc/Ss/Ll/DmDm/CC/ww/ii)
West is a black-based tortie with white paws and a 'locket' marking on her chest. Her fur is short and compact, giving her comfort in the colder seasons. She has a deep 'V' scar down her left ear from a fight in her youth. Her eyes are orange, like her father's.
West was born in Summer and is 3 years old, the same age as North and her other siblings.
West has always been a bit of a rebel, often doing things others wouldn't dream of - taunting a dog over the fence, stealing food, you name it. Her moral code is closest to chaotic neutral, as she'll do anything to protect her family but may not care so much for rules and laws. She's often gotten into fights with other cats over food and has had issues with weight gain in the past, as the scrawniest kitten of the litter. She is passionate about things like philosophy but lacks the same tact that East has towards polite debate.
South - Sister (OO/BB/Dd/Aa/McMc/SS/ll/DmDm/CC/ww/ii)
South is a white cat with ginger mackerel tabby patches, ears, and tail. Her eyes are green, like her mother's. She has a scar that crosses her lips on the right side from a spat in her youth. Her fur is long and thick, perfect for colder weather but hard to keep groomed.
South was born in Summer and is 3 years old, the same age as North and her other siblings.
South is timid, shy, and envies West for her outspoken nature and go-getter attitude. She is bad at trusting others but wants to be better. West is protective of her, and the two share a traveling bond, exploring the world together. She talks more with her body than her voice. She has a tendency to look away or disengage herself from situations unless she thinks she has something genuine to add to the conversation. She's honest, but minces words if it might hurt another's feelings.
