Siwatu: THK Application by dancer2017 Siwatu: THK Application by dancer2017
Wow.....I was up until 4 am just drawing the cheetah.....5 and a half hours is waaaaaay too long to be drawing ONE picture! So I worked from 10:30 last night to 4 this morning, then noon to 1:30ish.....and with the description I just copied and pasted it, and I changed a couple things on it...nothing big.....GAH THAT'S A WHOLE LOT OF TIME I COULD HAVE SPENT DOING SOMETHING ELSE!

Anyway, he didn't become the Healer Tyro :{ and the picture that I had of him before kind of sucked, so I made a new Siwatu! I added new markings, a different hidden mark, he's pretty much a whole new cheetah! Yay!

Okey dokey, now for the application part of the description...


Name (in Swahili): Siwatu

Name meaning (what it means in English): Born during a time of conflict

Age: 7 moons

Gender: Male

Tribe: Half tribe, lives in the Tribe of the Crooked Tree

Rank: Hunter Tyro

Accessories: None

Personality:
~Funny: If you spend a day around Siwatu when he isn't hunting, you will find that he is very funny. Spend 5 minutes and he will tell you a joke that will make you start cracking up! But when he is hunting or training, he stays very concentrated. That is, until someone does something stupid :}
~Smart: Being a hunter tyro is not easy. It takes hard work, determination, and skill. Siwatu has all of those things, and he's smart. If you ask Siwatu any question about the history of the tribes, he will give you an answer right away. I guess all those moons listening to the elders tell stories about the tribes when he was a cub payed off!
~Brave: Not being accepted by one tribe is one thing. Not being accepted by two is a whole other thing. Being half tribe, Siwatu had to work very hard to please his own tribe, but they didn't accept him. No matter what he did, they wouldn't tell him any secrets. When Siwatu was turned down by his father's tribe too, he had to be very brave to go to the last tribe, where he was finally accepted.
~Trustworthy: Maybe the other tribes didn't see how trustworthy this young tyro was, but the Tribe of the Crooked Tree did. You could trust Siwatu with any secret. Even your darkest, most personal things you could tell him, and nobody else would know. Having a cheetah that trustworthy is something the other tribes missed out on!

Gift: Unknown

Brief History: The time when Siwatu was born was a horrible time on the island. At least for the Tribe of Sunning Rocks and the Tribe of Crowded Waters. A young sunning rocks tyro was caught stalking prey on the crowded waters territory. Cubs are taught to stay within their territory, so it's very unusual to see cheetahs from one tribe on another tribe's territory, unless they are attacking. A patrol was walking along the crowded water's territory when they saw this tyro. They assumed he was coming to attack them, so they attacked him first. The tyro, being outnumbered, was killed before he had the chance to escape. The Tribe of Sunning Rocks was very upset about this, and they attacked the Tribe of Crowded Waters. They were battling for 3 moons. During the second moon, Siwatu was born into his mother's tribe; the Tribe of Sunning Rocks. He grew up there, but right before he became a tyro, he ran away to his father's tribe, the Tribe of Crowded Waters. He didn't feel accepted at either tribe, and he was on his last hope when he went to the Tribe of the Crooked Tree, where he was finally accepted and made a tyro. He wanted to become the healer tyro so that he wouldn't ever have to see any of his family again, but only a couple days before he came to the Tribe of the Crooked Tree, another cheetah, Maisha had been made the healer tyro. At first, Siwatu was jealous and angry at her for taking the job that he had wanted so badly, but he eventually got over it and has started to like Maisha. She has treated many of his wounds from training, and during those times he got to learn more about her.

Roleplay Example: "Jaheim! Jaheim! Tell us a story!" all of the cubs called, except for Siwatu. "Ok, ok, which one?" He responded. "Not the one about how the tribes started again!" Siwatu murmured to himself as the younger cubs pleaded, "the one about how the tribes started!" "Yeah, that one's my favorite!" shouted Asali, one of Siwatu's den mates. "Not again," Siwatu moaned. As he stood up to walk around the camp, he noticed all of his tribemate's eyes focused on him. He already felt like an outcast, but now everybody was ignoring him. Except his mother. "I know what I'm going to do," he told himself, "I'm going to run away. If I can't be accepted here, I'm sure I'll be accepted somewhere else! Mom! Mom!" He yelled as he went to tell his mother his idea, but he had no idea what would come next.

Relationships:
:bulletblack: Mean/Evil/Hate
:bulletorange: Dislike
:bulletwhite: Neutral
:bulletyellow: Friend
:bulletgreen: Close Friend
:bulletpink: Crush
:bulletpurple: Love
:bulletred: Family
:bulletblue: Respect

:bulletblue::bulletyellow:-Vumbi: Siwatu had a very nice time out with the Token, where he was taught a couple things by the wise cheetah.

:bulletwhite:-Yaliyo: Siwatu has socialized with the Healer, but not enough to really know what he's like.

:bulletyellow:-Maisha: Siwatu hasn't been able to be with Maisha very often, but when he was, it wasn't a very good experience.

:bulletgreen:-Zakiya: Siwatu's mentor is one of his greatt friends. Little to Siwatu's knowledge though, Zakiya has been using his gift (The gift of animal tongues) to help him out, making prey that has escaped Siwatu's claws come running back.

:bulletgreen:-Jauhar: Jauhar is one of Siwatu's great friends. Even though Jauhar is older, Siwatu assumes he still loves hanging out with him and going on adventures.

:bulletorange:-Kulala: Siwatu really has no reason to dislike Kulala anymore, but he still has never gotten along with him. He wishes he could just try to get along with him

:bulletpurple:-Hasira: Siwatu loves Hasira, but he isn't sure if they're a couple yet. They've spent so much time together that he feels lonely without her next to him. It's the happiest he's felt since his mother died.

EDIT: Yes, I am aware he isn't shaded, I didn't want to spend another twenty hours working on it.

Hi there!

I'm sad to say that since you character never got the activity check in on time, it is now dead, and removed from the group. The group will be reopening soon however, so if you wish to make a new character and hopefully become more active, then you can do soon.

Yes! Yeah, Hasira's three, but at this point, Siwatu is probably about 9 moons instead of seven, in my opinion. Neither of them care about age <3 It's so cute

Siwatu was never really close to Akeet, or their father. The only person in the family he was close to was their mom. And I will start then!

Yes, but his father is from crowded waters, and his mother is from sunning rocks....is that ok or no? If not, I can switch them, and thanks for the fave!

Hmm... Yeah! That's reall good actually! I have an idea. Okay, so their father was the Token of crowded waters. He fell in love with a Cheetah from Sunning rocks. He kept akeet, pretending that Akeet was his AND another cheetahs, from The Crowded Waters, but it actually wasn't hers.
Akeet and Siwatu's mother kept Siwatu, and she also pretended that she had him with a cheetah from her tribe.
Afterwards, Their mother died. Siwatu was given to Akeet's father, and he pretended that he had adopted him, just so their cover was never blown. But it was, soon enough. Their father was found out, and he was so greif stricken by his mate's death and his betrayal, that he died a year later. Meanwhile, After their dad died, Akeet stepped forward to be token, and all the while, Siwatu was really jealous of Akeet, and he left.
Oh my god i'm so excited! This is great!
