she has the classic lynx look. a shaggy ticked tabby coat with dark yellow eyes. she's thick with muscle and long in limb and body.
<b>personality in detail</b><br/>
this section will mainly outline her reactions to different situations: such as meeting new people, her thoughts and feelings on other species, etc. this should help define her as an individual as must as her personality traits do.
in a non-traditional way many lynx families gather near the riverside, many miles down from where the four clans are known to live, during the spring and summer seasons each year. to help one and other protect and nurse newborns, and to train the cubs from the previous year. only a few families stay year-round, to ensure the land remains theirs, and sugars family was one of those. a large gathering of her older brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, and cousins, that would come and go. raised alongside, not just her own littermates, but the cubs of other families that stayed in the riverlands. which is how she became close friends with brother and sister, vex and rain. under the care and guidance of their parents and older relations, sugar and vex became strong and bold. sugar leaning towards brute strength and rash decisions, while vex often warned caution and analyzed each option. and it was clear to everywhere that rains talents leaned toward healing and when the three weren't training, sugar and vex were dragging their shy friend along on their rule-breaking adventures.
the first six months of their lives were bliss.
and then a new family moved into the riverlands, to stay permanently. weary of travels and the world outside.
all save their daughter, a cub their age named brightsmoke. this new family memorized the other families with the tales of their travels, of the clans and the things beyond even that. and brightsmoke wasn't above rubbing it in the other cubs faces that she was more worldly then they'd ever be, tied to the riverlands as they were.
never one to back down from a challenge sugar assured the other female that she was strong enough to take on anything in the outside world and would prove it.
there started a rivalry between the lynxes. one that vex and rain attempted to defuse as the two females clashed over the coming months. a rivalry made worse when sugar, who had long since had harbored a secret love for vex, witnessed him and brightsmoke together. enraged she confronted the other female and they fought, a vicious scuffle that rain stumbled upon and attempted to break up. but so intent on each other they paid no heed to the healer. or the gorge so close by. until rains screams broke them apart, to late to save her as she plummeted over the side.
frightened brightsmoke ran. but sugar stayed, sobbing as she leaned over the cliff. searching for signs that her friend might have survived the fall and would surface, she was a strong swimmer... and that was how the families found her. staring dully down the cliff.
a few months of grieving passed before sugar noticed that vex had hardly spoken to her. ready to reconnect with her friend she sought him out, only to be rebuffed by brightsmoke, who assured sugar that vex didn't want to speak to his sisters murderer. angry and confused she seeks him out anyway and is confronted with a male whose love for her had somehow turned to hatred. his scalding words only confirm what brightsmoke had said,
that he blamed her and that the families did too. she was known to be rash after all. hurt she lashes back at her friend and the others and flees for the night.
and it is the first night she is visited by a spirit. a young lynx cub that says nothing, merely stares off and points in a certain direction. she is confused for a while, talking and trying to touch the spirit. during this brightsmoke finds her and mocks her, revealing that while she hadn't meant to knock rain off the gorge during their fight,
it would have happened eventually since she was planning to kill her anyways. shocked sugar threatens to reveal the truth but brightsmoke is right when she says that no one will believe her. their reaction to her these past few weeks was proof enough of that.
it hurts to know they could think so little of her. brightsmoke leaves with a laugh. and sugar continues to contemplate this new information when suddenly the spirit speaks, reminding her that it was there. "the gorge doesn't kill all. mother lives." the cub moved away, stopped, and pointed again. its eyes determined. "follow me."
she gave it only a moments thought before getting up and following the near-silent spirit from the riverlands and into the unknown. something had sent it to her, and while she wasn't much of a believer in the afterlife, she believed in this. what she could clearly see. and it wanted to show her something. the timing wasn't a coincidence, it wanted to show her the truth.
