How to Create a Good Warriors OC

How to Create a Good Warriors OC

The Basic Stuff.

➟ Before we start naming our cat and giving them a personality and skills, let's decide their gender, shall we? I know it doesn't seem to matter, but tortoiseshells and calico cats are almost always female. If a tom were a tortoiseshell, he'd be a chimera or whatever, he'd be sickly and would need human care, and wouldn't be suited for Clan life. If you have a male character that's a calico or tortoiseshell, no, just no, please. If they have a mate or kits, no again, there are only three fertile tortoiseshell toms in the world.

➟ If you want your character to be a tortoiseshell, please make them a she-cat. Female cats can also be called mollies, and I prefer to call them that. Molly, keep that in mind. They say mollies are less temperamental than toms, for that matter. We can, however ignore it for now, you always can get an oddball here and there.

➟ Now that we know all this, let's decide the gender of our cat. I personally go with a molly.

➟ We can now go onto the looks. Before we do, I'll need to point out a few things you shouldn't do if you want to make your cat realistic. Let us begin!

➟ Eyes.
That is super important, really. A white warrior with blue eyes tends to be deaf, not always, but very often. You want to avoid that, unless your cat is odd-eyed. Usually the eyes are blue and yellow, so no experimenting here! The ear on the side of the blue eyes is likely deaf, too. Now let's face a common mistake, icy blue eyes. I've had many character with 'ice blue' eyes, but they're impossible. Pale blue eyes are acceptable, but never on a black cat. Black cats DO NOT naturally have blue eyes. Purple eyes seem to pop up here and there as well, you probably know by now that's not possible. Avoid red, neon and generally weird eye colors.

➟ Purebreds.
Pointed cats, Siamese, Persians and Angoras are exclusively bred cats. Do not make your warriors pointed or purebred, they are feral cats, related closely to the wildcat. Your purebred cat would have to be a kittypet or have kittypet ancestry, but we've had enough of them in the Clans. I only suggest one or two non-Clan cats that live in a Clan when you're writing a fan-fiction, it gets boring when everyone is a kittypet.

➟ Now that we have all our no-no's, let's get down to it! Pick a gender keeping the above info in mind, and choose a pelt color for them. Remember all the eye info when having a white or black cat in mind. I may as well go with tortoiseshell when I'm shaping a female. It's always handy to know the majority or your tortie's colors, so I go with mainly golden, patched with brown and little other colors.

how are we supposed to think of a personality without copying yours, when we had 1 n mind and it was THE SAMETHING and every time I try t think of another personality, I cant because it has something to do with the others!!!!!

You can have some traits another person used in their personality, but as long as you add some twists of your own, it's fine! [Sorry if I answered wrong, I really don't understand the middle part of this post].

I have three main OC's. See what you think:

Acornwish - Black and brown tabby she-cat with one black ear and black front paws.
- Medicine Cat
- Good at climbing and healing

Shadowmane - Black and brown tabby tom with thick, black fur around his shoulders. See More▼

If you go for lyrical names, that's fine by me. If I were to rate them I would probably begin a rant on how they aren't Traditional and how you can make them Traditional, and because you think a name doesn't have to describe the talents of a cat I'm not going to give you suffix suggestions. If you want some color suggestions tough, Acorn- is more of a light brown/golden See More▼

I have a oc named silver flight and moon dust..... Should Make some changes or... Anything else is at my warrior cats rp it shows both of them sooo yeah. Change some stuff or am I good?
reply
T3R3Z1
Silver is okay if you're using it on a pale, silver-ish gray cat. -flight is not that great, unfortuneatley, Traditional Namers are against -wing, -flight names because the cats simply can't fly. If the cat is agile or good at climbing, a fine name for it would be -tail, useful balance tool for cats. Moon is just something too sacred for the Clans to be a name, See More▼

I guess it all comes down to territory, StreamClan or BrookClan can be used for territory with many creeks and stuff, HeatherClan for moorland, MapleClan or OakClan for a forest-based territory, with majority maple or oak. Think about the landscape for a nice name.

Ok! She was born in shadow clan but left later on. You have any recommendations for what a clan name for her could be?

Great! Moondust is okay for her as a rogue but maybe change it when she gets into a Clan.

Oh ok thanks! I choseflight mainly because she's very swift and agile like she sorta glides on the air when she jumps and moon dust is a rogue pretty much she's looking for a clan and she's i fact deaf in one of her ears and she has black splotches on her body and face (fun fact:Silverflight is based off my cat in real life)

I have a Warriors OC named Spottedfeather, and another one named Robinfoot
reply
T3R3Z1
I'm a little against -feather, it does no job describing the cat's skill but I must admit it sound pretty! Robinfoot is great, it your cat is ginger, brown or tortoiseshell, and -foot would most likely mean it's a fast cat. Well done on the names!
reply
T3R3Z1
You could use Spottedtail, it is a good name for an agile or good-climbing cat that is...well...spotted! You also keep your fave charrie parts, you know, FeatherTAIL.
