History: Swanstar's birth was never planned and quite a surprise to everyone in her clan, because her parents Larkpool and Berrystripe were older warriors when she was born to them. They were close to retirement when Larkpool found out she was pregnant. Larkpool was clearly shocked because she never though she could have kits. Larkpool and Berrystripe had tried for many seasons without any success, then suddenly it happened. They were both so excited when they got the news of the upcoming birth, that Larkpool moved immediately to the nursery to start her laying in. She was determined to have her kits. Berrystripe went to visit his mate everyday. He always brought her treats that she loved.
Swankit was born on a cool, starry night with the moon shining bright in the sky in New-Leaf. Larkpool had been in labor since sundown and Berrystripe was so nervous that he was starting to tearing her nest apart. Finally, with the last of her strength, Larkpool gave birth to a single kit- a she-cat. She was so beautiful and perfect in their eyes that they loved her instantly. All of their love that they had for each other shown in their new daughter. Her pelt was white and pale grey like her mothers, but Swankit had more white than her mother had. She looked so graceful and beautiful like a swan. In honor of the beautiful bird that graced the waters of RiverClan, they name her Swankit.
Swanpaw had a wonderful, normal beginning to her kithood. She was the center of her parents lives and she couldn't have asked for more. She loved them more than anything in the word. When mother got sick from a bad greencough when she was just four moons old, she never left her mother's side despite the urgency from the medicine cat for her health. Swankit didn't care, she wanted her be by her mother. It feel the closeness one last time, but Larkpool's sickness was too advanced to be saved. It crushed her deeply to lose her mother at such a young age but she had to stay strong for her father. Swankit was forced to be raised by a foster mother, but she could never replace her real mother. Berrystripe never took another mate, but just spent time with his daughter.
A few days before Swankit was to be made into an apprentice, her father was killed from an adder bite while out on a patrol. Berrystripe was her last known link to her family. Swankit had no other known family, at all. She was all alone in the world. All she had left was RiverClan to devote her time and energy too. She was mentored by the wise old leader of RiverClan named Swallowstar. They quickly became great friends and in no time at all, he trained Swanpaw to work very hard for what she wanted and in doing so she made a warrior quickly at twelve moons. She was graced with the warrior name Swanfeather, to signify her beauty and soft features.
As a young warrior, she developed her skills even more as a warrior and though at a young age then most, she was made deputy of RiverClan. For the old deputy had retired as an elder because of blindness. Swanfeather was really shocked to be made deputy at such a young age when there were more experienced warriors who would be a better choice. Though very flattered by the honor, Swanfeather went to ask Swallowstar why he would do such a thing to make her deputy. Swallowstar smiled softly at his old apprentice and calmly explained to her the reason behind why he did it. He told her that when she was his apprentice, he saw something in her that he couldn't teach her. It was something special that she was born with it and he felt it was something RiverClan desperately needed. He also confined in Swanfeather his deep secret; he was on his last life. She knew what that meant, when his last life was up she would be leader of RiverClan.
Swanfeather was Swallowstar's deputy for a little over six moons when Swallowstar started to get sick. It was like losing her parents all over again, she became depressed and would withdraw herself from Clan life, though she still gave duties to the warriors and apprentices. Swanfeather knew it was only a matter of time before she lost Swallowstar too. When Swallowstar finally joined the ranks of StarClan, Swanfeather was completely broken. The only comfort Swanfeather got was when she went to Moonpool, she was reunited with her parents and Swallowstar. Finally, before all of StarClan she was made into Swanstar, a cat who was destined for greatness.
