Age: 20 Moons
Appearance: Cherryberry is, to put it simply, a red tabby she-cat. No other way around it, she is reddish colored with darker red stripes covering her body, head, and even on her legs, and well everywhere else you look. Apart from the red, the only other color you will see on this she-cat is a white/cream color. This is found on her muzzle, and stretches from there, down to her stomach, and becomes scarce as it goes past her front paws. It, the white pattern, turns into an almost orange color, cream and red mixed, between her tail and the white/cream color. Speaking of her tail, it is just your average, run of the mill kind of tail, it's average size and length.
Both her nose and the insides of her ears are a light, healthy pink color. Her paw pads, like her nose and ears, are pink, but aren't quite as light, they are a bit of a darker pink. Her whiskers are wispy and short, and look amusing when wet, being straight and appearing longer. Size-wise, she isn't the largest cat, but definitely isn't too small. She's not quite what one would call average size, just a fraction under the average. But who really cares how big or small a cat is? If they can fight, and hunt does it really matter? Besides, what she doesn't have in size she makes up for in muscles, being quite a strong she-cat. Finally we come to Cherryberry's eyes, the beautiful light green pools that sparkle and gaze into your own eyes, giving the impression she is always watching. Despite all the battles she has come in contact with, Cherryberry doesn't have any serious scars. They heal, and the fur comes back, leaving barely a trace after a couple moons of healing. The only real scars she has are in her past, not that she knows too much about them.
Personality: Cherryberry is not lazy in the least little bit, that can be blamed soley on her mentor and the drive she has had to prove her parents wrong.She was always told she was a waste of space, she is still to this day determined to prove to her parents that she is just as good as her sister. Due to the way she was treated she does have a slight temper if anything relating to her parents or siblings is brought up, or if she is having a bad day and remembering something from her past. There is, however, one cat that can cheer her up , her best friend.
The she-cat tends to overdo it sometimes, causing her body to shutdown. She was forced to push past all limits as an apprentice, so she doesn't really know her limits anymore. Cherryberry has to often be reminded to take a break and actually sleep. She has been known to also forgetting to eat. It isn't like she plans to not eat, she just forgets and is too busy either patrolling herself or assigning patrols. This is another reminded that her best friend has to constantly scold her about.
She is very helpful and is always willing to lend a paw, no matter how small the task. It doesn't matter if the task is something an apprentice would normally do, as long as it helps the clan, Cherryberry will do it. She is also a very stubborn she-cat, which is another good reason to not upset her.

Cherryberry was born into ThunderClan to two warriors, who always seemed to quarrel. Everything Yarrowleaf and Snowcrow ever said to each other ended in an argument. So when Yarrowleaf told her mate she wanted kits, Snowcrow was completely against the idea. By the time Crowsnow was ready to have kits, Yarrowleaf said she didn't want any. But somehow the queen ended up pregnant, though it was later in their lives.
Yarrowleaf gave birth to two she-kits, Heatherkit and Cherrykit. Neither she-kit looked like the other, and both quickly learned their parents should have never been mates. Their parents were always arguing and the two kits would get caught into the middle of the arguments the majority of the time. Both she-kits learned they needed to be independent and learn how to do things on their own. Obviously their parents wouldn't teach them, or really pay much attention to them. So the two spent their kithood just trying to please both of their parents. It seemed Heatherkit was better suited to sucking up to their parents and getting their approval. It seemed nothing Cherrykit did was right. Cherrykit would play with the other kits in the nursery, trying to befriend someone else, while Heatherkit was getting their parents approval.
Time passed by and both Cherrykit and Heatherkit were made into apprentices. Heatherpaw was given a mentor that was perfect, one who was best friends with their parents and treated her like her parents did, like she was the most perfect cat in the world. Once again, Fate had given Cherrypaw the worst mentor possible. Cherrypaw had been given to Bigfoot, one of the toughest and fiercest cats in the Clan (also known for killing his own kits because they were too weak). Cherrypaw had no room to be timid, not after she was given this mentor. Just when she thought she was getting a break from the nursery and her parents disapproval, the worst cat possible became her mentor.
Not everything in her life was completely awful, there was one good part that happened shortly after she was apprenticed. Cherrypaw became best friends with another apprentice, close to the same age as herself, in almost no time. It was as if the two cats were born to be best friends. Idon'tknowwhattonameitpaw was there for her when no one else was. Her sister was off being perfect, but it seemed her friend didn't care she wasn't perfect. And their friendship continued on, even in tough times.
Several moons into her training Cherrypaw was out with her mentor, at another one of his gruesome training sessions. This was the first time the tom would be training her by himself, usually another warrior/apprentice pair was with them, but not on this fine day. The day had started perfectly, her mother coming up to her and telling her that she would never be the kit she wanted. Following her mother's statement she received a visit from her father, saying she was such a disappointment, she wasn't worth being his kit. And to make the day better her sister had been watching the entire time, trying to hold back laughter. The look in her parent's eyes were so cold and full of hatred. She had done nothing wrong, and only did what she was told. How could they be mad at her for doing absolutely nothing? When Bigfoot announced they were to go training alone, Cherrypaw just followed him robotically. She was already exhausted mentally from her morning. The training session was going well, and Cherrypaw was learning a lot...that is until Bigfoot when too far. His massive claws became unsheathed and instead of demonstrating on another object, he used Cherrypaw. Blood gushed from the wounds he opened, and she cried out in pain. She thought she was going to die right then and there. Bigfoot carried her into camp, and said she was attacked by some beast. The last voice she heard before she slipped out of consciousness was her best friends voice full of worry
She woke up about four sunrises later, Istillneedtonameitpaw right beside her. She never knew what it was like to have someone actually want to be near her. Everything seemed intact, her memory was fine, but the wounds she received would take quite a long time to heal. Her parents never visited her, saying she was foolish for letting anything attack her. Seriouslyneedanamepaw was the only cat she told the truth to, that Bigfoot attacked her. It wasn't like anyone would believe her anyway. It took almost half a moon for her to recover, and was told she could return to training, but it had to be light. But light to Bigfoot was not what the medicine cat had in mind. Cherrypaw was pushed to her limits once again, and ended up in the medicine cat's den once again out of exhaustion. Though she was always exhausted she ended up staying on task and was made a warrior at the same time her sister was, and given the name Cherryberry.
Her friendship with her best friend, Stillneedanamekitty(previously Nonamepaw) continued and just after their warrior ceremony they became more than just friends. The two were always together, unless on patrols. And so life continued, and she found happiness with Meowkitty, well as happy as a cat with a horrible past can have. Just after her warrior ceremony at 10 moons (training her so hard had paid off quite well), she was given an apprentice at 11 moons to see exactly how she would treat another cat despite her rocky past. She proved to be nothing like her mentor. Yes, she was tough but also had her best friend help her and understand what emotions were appropriate.
She was made deputy not too long ago, and her parents really showed no emotion once again. Even after being appointed such an honor, they still didn’t care.OUT OF CHARACTER
