The brown-haired girl with no personality
The mean, popular, snobby girl
Unreasonably cruel bullies out to make life harder for the main character

A deep snarl curdled in his throat. Nobody else seemed to see that it was the spirits that were the problem, that they only granted the tribe cats these names and seals of power so that they could use them as their pawns.
