Many seasons ago, a flood rampaged through the forest, which was home to four Clans: ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan. In the end, it destroyed the entire forest, causing the Clans to get lost in the process. The Clans traveled to a far away land, away from all familiar areas. Many cats died on the journey, leaving just a pitiful few left. The few survivors became kittypets, rogues, or stayed as part of their Clan, trying to bring them back together. Eventually, the Clans true ancestry was lost beneath everything. No one could answer the question of who founded the original four Clans. The stories and tales of the "Old Life", when they lived peacefully in the forest were lost, the only things that remained were the names of the Clans. Everything seemed grim for the remaining Clan descendants. The Clans were just known as groups, nothing more and nothing less. But, hope shone through eventually, when four brave cats decided to finally restablish the Clans under new identities. The four cats went by the name of: Creek, Summit, Pine, and Dark. They gave names to the Clans once again, named after themselves and their territories, creating the Clans as we know them.
This is how it should be, and this is how it always will be.
SummitClan: These cats are considered to be descendants of WindClan, but some Clans consider them not one of the original four due to how they have changed. With lean bodies and thick fur, they have adapted from life on the moors to life on the mountains.
PineClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of ThunderClan, they live in the thick forest where they use the undergrowth as an advantage. Their muscular shoulders make them excellent fighters.
DarkClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of ShadowClan, but have adopted being quick instead of relying on brute strength to win their battles. Their teeth are known to be the sharpest in the world, while their territory, the darkest in the current lands.
CreekClan: These cats are considered to be the descendants of RiverClan, considered the most "pure" of all the Clans due to them being so alike to their ancestors. They are excellent swimmers, and take a lot of pride into their skills.

(Please let me know if I can start this rp here or not I'm guessing I can.) Mawu's Den
This is Mawu:
And this is his den:
Mawu is a African Desert Cat who's mother and father escaped with, another cat that Mawu thinks as his uncle, from a illegal exotic animal zoo. After he was old enough to leave the den he knew all his life he set out into the big open world. Even with his small size he can deliver a powerful bite. He always seems to be filled with energy but after a long time of being his energetic self he normally takes a long nap. Mawu is sensitive to many different textures and tastes which made it so his siblings would tease him all the time. Mawu likes to quote many things his uncle Mungo said. Gender: Male Age: 12 moons (1 year) old. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mawu walked acrossed a fallen tree branch that he used as a bridge to cross over a small stream near his den. He held his head high with a small mouse hanging from his mouth, the small cat might have not liked the texture of the mouse's tail on his tongue but he was too hungry and proud to care. Mawu thought of how his siblings would make fun of him and tease him just because he seemed to be sensitive to many things. He shook his head "Remember what uncle Mungo always said, Don't let anyone think you are less than you really are." he said to himself as he finally reached his den.
(Alicia is a pale golden tabby with amber eyes and a fluffy white stomach :) She's very shy and kind, but is very clumsy.)
Alicia walked slowly through the woods, tired and hungry. She hadn't eaten in days and desperately needed food. The seventeen month old molly recognised something that looked like a den. She smelled the fresh scent of mouse and followed it, ultimating ending up inside that den. Seeing a small golden cat, she was surprised. "Hey, do you have any spare mice?" Looking down, Alicia hoped the other feline wouldn't be upset by her request. "Please? I haven't eaten in days," she muttered.

Mawu turned to look at the older cat and jumped back a bit. He wasn't angry that the cat entered his den but just a little surprised to see another cat. When Mawu finally understood what the cat said to him he quickly moved to drop the mouse in his mouth at her feet. "You can have it I just caught it mainly to keep my mind of something." he said. The small african desert tom sat down wondering what the stranger would do.
Alicia nodded her head politely to thank the tom, and then quickly tore apart the mouse. She was absolutely starving and needed to eat very badly. After devouring the mouse in a matter of seconds, she licked her lips. "Thank you so much! I'm a really bad hunter and I can never catch myself any food," she said. "By the way, what's your name? My name is Alicia, nice to meet you." The molly noticed that the tom was small, and she realized that he was definitely younger.

Mawu smiled a friendly smile but there was something in his eyes that told a story of horrors he had seen. "My name is Mawu its after some sort of thing called a creator goddess if I remember what Uncle Mungo said." he said with his ears flattened to his head as he tried to remember exactly what Mungo told him.
Alicia's expression changed slightly when she noticed a bit of a mixed mood flash into Mawu's eyes. She quickly changed it when she noticed that he seemed to be hiding it, at least from her point of view. "Your name is very nice, Mawu!" Alicia smiled, but she couldn't help but wonder what the expression change was for.

Mawu forced a small grin "Thank you it is a name from where my ancestors came from." he said. He shivered a bit thinking about the stories that he had been told by his parents of how their parents where taken from their old territory. He hadn't been around for the true horrors but he still had seen some horrible things.
Alicia couldn't ignore what she saw anymore. Bracing herself for bad news, she asked in a hush tone, "you seem upset... Did something happen recently?" Adjusting herself, she lay down on the dirt and prepared herself to listen.

Mawu quickly shook his head "N..no no nothing happened." he lied stuttering a bit he thought he was hiding his emotions perfectly. He sighed his siblings where right about him being a horrible liar he could hear the nervousness in his own voice. ☽ Ash ☾,
Alicia allowed her ears to droop slightly. "I know you're lying..." She paused, but then looked Mawu in the eyes and continued, "but I'm assuming you are because you don't wanna talk about it." The molly regretted asking Mawu about it, but her curiosity got the best of her.

Mawu lowered his head and tried to hide his face between his paws. The small cat felt like curling up into a ball until he dissapeared from existence but he knew he could never do that. Mawu growled at the universe angrily and curled up into a small ball of fur. ☽ Ash ☾,
Alicia frowned, hating herself because she made another cat upset, especially when she had just met him. "I'm so sorry... I should just leave... I'll only make you more upset!" She darted off into the forest, feeling awful about what she did.

Mawu looked up "It wasn't you!" he called after her he was telling the truth. "I'm just upset at the universe." he explained. The small tom sighed he failed at being social again. "Why did I have to be born this way?" he asked himself sadly. ☽ Ash ☾,
Mawu ran into his den not paying attention to his surroundings and he slammed face forward into one of the walls in the den. "Ow that hurt." he whined rubbing his face with his paw. He then shook off the dirt on his head and moved to the entrance of his den waiting for his new friend. ☽ Ash ☾,
