Altan has a very interesting pelt. Her main colours are that of her uncle Naran and her mother if she was not albino. However, they seem to have mixed weirdly with the coat of her grandmother (Seidon’s mother) who was entirely black, much like her brothers Jay’s pelt. She has the bright yellows but then black on her legs tail and back, as if her spots have melted together and just left her with some freckles.
Bracelet (worn as tail wrap like Anane) made for all the little ones by Philos and Seidon to calm there mother's worries of losing them due to lack of sight. They are made from seaweed so they have a distinct but mostly unrecognisable (to most cats) scent and are personalised for each cub.
Major Traits: [Strong-willed & Stubborn] [Hotheaded & Emotional] [Protective & Caring] [Bright & inquisitive] [Proud & Arrogant]
[Strong-willed & Stubborn]
Altan has a very strong drive when she wants to do something she will move the sun to do so, and no one or anything can persuade her otherwise. Much to her parent’s dismay. Once she’s got her mind stuck on something she’ll stick at it until it works. This may pay off when it comes to training but for now, it just causes a lot of worry for her parents.
*Spends all day trying to climb tree*
[Hot-Headed & Emotional]
It doesn’t take much to get Altan wound up about something... Teasing is something that will quickly result in a fight, claws sheathed though she’s not cruel, but she is easy to anger, in the flip side she is also very emotional, she can be upset almost as easily as annoyed. Most of the time, however, she is just her happy self.
“WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY ABOUT MY BROTHER?!”
[Protective & Caring]
Raised by a healer has worn off on her slightly. She is a very caring cat, who tries to always look out for others, along with this she is very protective, especially of her brother Jay.
“It’ll be okay, here, let me help you”
[Bright & Inquisitive]
Like her parents Altan isn’t afraid of using her brain, she asks questions about everything, like many cubs, but she is also quick to put together pieces of information and is always striving to know more.
“Mum? Why do bees visit flowers?”
[Playful & High-Spirited]
Although she is quick to be upset or angry she is usually very happy and playful, happy to roll around in the mud, hunt for bugs and try all manner of new things! So long as she can have a cuddle with mum and dad afterwards.
"Quick! It flew that way!!"
Altan is the middle child of Seidon and Sara, younger brother to Proteus and older sister to their little brother Jay. She was born with her litter mates during a warm spring day much to the delight of her parents and extended family. Her personality will develop into being rather polar, much like her unusual pelt.

Rosa stormed out of the healing den, head down hair in front of her face to try and hide her tears... She was heading to the nearest outcropping of rocks. Anywhere to get away from this stupid camp full of stupid cats. The ice and snow had begun to melt but there was still a stiff breeze in the air, and though she was excited to see this so called spring she was still sad to the snow she had enjoyed so much, leaving. If her mother wanted her out the way then out the way she would go! With a sniff she tried to wipe the tears out of her eyes as she looked to hop up a mini cliff. She could make that right?
Kelpie had spent most the morning listening to his sisters bicker and Cougio attempt to break them up. Not exactly out of the ordinary but definitely not what the nearly year old cub was planning on doing for his morning. Especially when it was the same arguments over and over again. Huffing a sigh the dark hybrid had simply faded out of the den (easy to do when you're quiet in his family) and made his way out into camp. Only to discover that there wasn't much happening there either. He sighed again and began to weave his way slowly through dens and cats, nodding politely and greeting as he went. Eventually he came to an outcropping of rock where a small cub was glaring at the outcropping and he stopped to watch. He cocked his head, his light bangs swishing out of his eyes to give him a better view of what was happening.
With eyes slightly squinted, she dropped her body, legs crouched and ready to hop. But just as she felt herself ready to spring she could feel the eyes of another rest on her. She froze before hopping and turning on the spot. She wasn't happy. This day had gone badly enough and now a cat was going to see her at her worst. Luckily it was just another cub, an older one yes but it was hardly someone worthy of her attention. "What do you want?! Here to rub it in?!" She spat, the lucid part of brain trying to remind her that it was highly unlikely this dark cat knew anything of what was going on but that couldn't stop the pure venom just overflowing. She hated this. Hated that she seemed so incapable of being a nice, sweet cub like her stupid siblings. Why did they find it so easy to not just... Well... Do this...?
Kelpie's brow twitched up and his eyes widened slightly, enough to see the glimmer of his bi-colored eyes. So, another spitfire. How strange they all seemed to live in Ice Empire. His mouth twitched and he huffed out a breath that might have been a laugh at his own little joke. His head righted itself and his bangs fell to cover his eyes again. "I was simply waiting to see what you have planned. The top of that particular outcropping tends to get really cold with the breeze, so I doubt you really wanted to stay there." He said, easily brushing off her harsh tone and words. After all his sisters tended to always sound like that. "I just figured you must have something interesting hidden up there."
How DARE he laugh at her! How DARE he just let the words slide past. He was so unbothered. So uncaring. Here she was upset and crying and all he cared about was 'stuff'.
His lack of reaction if anything just took all the wind out of her sails. Why bother. He didn't look like he'd care anyway. She turned away, deflating. Sad eyes looking back up at the rocks. She might as well. She had nowhere else to go. Aloe would be in the nursery, he'd ask too many questions. She dropped down again and sprung with all her might. She just reached it, back legs scrabbling to help her up. At least up here she wouldn't have to deal with uncaring know it alls.
Kelpie watched with bright fascination as the cub jumped. She had made it, somehow... Getting up again he moved till he was a little bit beneath her and sat down again cocking his head up to watch. "And so she leaves her new companion to face a life alone upon the mountain." He said dramatically and his mouth twitched again as his smirking face drew in a deep sigh of feigned regret.
She had just sat down with her little tailed curled around to cover her chilly paws, ready to descend into a pit of self-pity and the voice from the male started again.... What was his problem? Did he like seeing cats upset? But no.. he seemed to be genuinely trying to be funny. Shame he failed miserably. Mostly... Okay, it was nice to finally have someone that wanted her around. Even jokingly. Even if it was a virtual stranger with too much hair, she flicked her own delicately out of her eyes for what felt like the millionth time that day....
"One can only hope that the cold brings about your quick demise" She replied, but this time she didn't have the venom dripping from it. No this was actually a joke. Though she almost worried he wouldn't take it as such. Eh. Why did she care, she dragged a paw over her face. Trying to get rid of any evidence of past tears.
Kelpie snickered to himself and made his way silently to the bottom of the ledge before looking up, his face a mask of solum hurt and distress. "Such dark words coming from someone so young." He said seriously, shaking his head in mock disappointment. "Death threats already and I don't even know your name." He said sighing.
He glanced up then, his eyes opening just enough to catch a glimmer through his bangs before stretching up on his back legs and placing his paws on the short cliff. "Now, I hope your finished pouting. It's not lady-like or fun. And I have more interesting things to do then be threatened with death. Though I will admit, it is amusing from time to time." He said with a friendly smirk.
As he replied she turned and moved to the edge, looking down at him gracefully. "Oh please, you needn't know my name for me to threaten you, though I guess I could grace you with it, my names Rosalie, though I'll allow you to call me Rosa" she smirked at the male below her. It was nice to be able to speak freely to another. Mari and Cam were so delicate, while she was half convinced Aloe was conspiring against her...
As he reached up towards her she couldn't help but raise an eyebrow. "I can pout as much as I like thank you very much" she stuck her tongue out at him. " And why must I be lady like? I'm but a cub you know" she fluttered her eyelids. Before cracking a sly smile. "Now please, do tell me what's more interesting than speaking to me?"
"Rosa... Rosa... hmm" He thought about it hard for a moment before he shook his head sadly, "That, unfortunately, is a name for a lady. I believe the name Lorelei fits you better." He said putting off the question as he removed himself from the cliff and began to walk toward the brush. "As for what is more fun," He paused and grinned, "Why there is so very much a cub can get into just out of the watchful eye of their parents. Apprentices can get into even more fun like," He paused, his tone becoming more informatory, "Did you know that the camp entrance isn't the only way in and out of the camp?"
The female tilted her head as he spoke of her name, ear tufts fluttering. What did he mean by that? Was she not as pretty as a rose as mummy said..? But the male redeemed himself quickly by giving her another pretty name. Lorelei. She liked it. But before she could ask why he perked her attention with his next action.
He moved away from her towards a bush. His words were like a melody. A way out of camp..! Her and Aloe had been investigating such things but... they had never managed it. Cam was too much of a tattle tail. Always ruining their fun.. but he wasn't here today noooo, he was with goodie two shoes Mari, helping mummy with the smelly herbs.
But she held herself back not leaping straight after him. Instead, taking her time to hop down gracefully. "Oh but I shouldn't just go wandering off with a stranger. What's your name?"
Kelpie stopped as she called out to him and cocked his head. A stranger. What a strange idea. He hadn't thought of that before or for that matter he wasn't sure he had even met a stranger before. Well in a way he guessed he could count the cub, but still. Up until now his family had made up his whole world, and yet there were cats that still thought of his family as strangers. Kelpie smiled, maybe this empire had more surprised than he thought.
"Kelpie."He answered. "Though if it makes you feel better you can call me Kal."
With that, he started walking along the brush line every once in awhile ducking his head into the bushes to check the depth before tsking and moving on. Finally, he found the spot he had scouted out days ago.
"Here it is." He said with a grin.
"Hmm Kelpie. I like it" she stuck her tongue out at him before slinking after him, making sure to keep her head low and tail down. This was going to be such a fun adventure! After the male had stuck his head into the bushes a few times they apparently reached the spot he had mentioned. Though to Rosa it looked like any other spot they had looked at....
She tried to pretend she wasn't the least bit hesitant but... She had never done something quite like this before. Sure she tattled on the others... Sometimes with half-truths but... She had never actually done something she was forbidden to do.. But the allure was strong. She could still hear her mothers look and the words she didn’t say: Why can't you just be good like Mari and Cam?. She had tried so hard and yet. It was never enough... This hole would be freedom! "Lets go!"
The cheetah hybrid grinned mischievously again, his eyes opening the barest slit as he pushed his way through the brush and brambles onto the other side. Sticks and twigs tangled in his fur and burrs and thorns were soon pricking his skin but he didn't mind all that much. He was about to spend the day away from camp and the rest of the rules with it. Though stepping out of the cover of thorns into a small clearing hadn't really been what he was expecting. All the other weak spots had opened to marvelous views of the territory stretching miles beyond the seer's sight. He sighed heavily and waited for the cub to get through. "Coming Lorelei?"
Rosa paused as the older cub pushed his way through the bushes. She followed quickly after, not wanting to be left the wrong side of the fence. She closed her eyes to avoid the twigs and thorns but a couple caught her pelt but she pushed through none the less. His question using his nickname for her hastened her movements and soon she too had popped out the other side.
She took a deep breath as she stepped out. Funny. Didn't seem all that different. The clearing seemed nice though. "Now what?"
"Now," the hybrid grinned. "we find out just how much ground we can cover before they figure out we're missing." And with that, he picked a random direction and began setting off at a brisk trot. He wasn't planning on using that particular weak spot again so he didn't really bother hiding his tracks. So in a way, he was at least helping his empire. "Was there anything, in particular, your were wanting to do Lori?"
His happiness and enthusiasm was contagious and she was more susceptible to others thoughts than one might think. To have his sole attention and the excitement of an adventure as like a drug. She as paused to listen to him explain the plan, or well lack thereof, she could feel it start to course through her body. Freedom.
She skipped a few steps to catch up this him, an elated smile on her face. "I want to see what the WHOLE of Ice empire looks like! Mumma always speaks of flower fields and ice blue lakes and and" she paused... Mum has also said how those things would only be visible when it stopped being so cold... "Could we see how high we could get and see what the view looks like?" Yes the camp was pretty high and the view when moving to the new camp had been good, but surely the view would be better somewhere higher.
Kelpie paused in his steps and glanced toward where the top of the mountain was supposed to be. Unfortunately, his poor field of vision as obscured by bangs, branches, and overall distance helped very little in judging how far away that was. And whether it would contend with dinner time. "We can try, but first we're going to have to find the other end of camp so that we don't get spotted by the guards." Last thing he wanted was to have his sole refuge taken from him for something as petty and easily avoided as walking the other way around camp.
