EDIT 7/20/17: updated everything! I added on a couple scars left from the eagle attack (I felt no injuries would be a bit unrealistic) and revised all of the descriptions/history! She's up for roleplay y'all 
EDIT 6/18/17: updated the art and design!! I'll be steadily revising the bio over the month once I finish a few more map parts, and hopefully this'll be finished by the end of the month :'o I'll add another edit like this when I do

Physical Appearance

Metea is a light gray she-cat with a dark gray stripe going down her back to her tail. This stripe provides a base, for lack of a better word, for the spotted tabby markings along Metea's flank. Metea's fur palette is compromised of few colors - an off-white color, silver, and dark gray. Additional colors (two different shades of pink, another off-white, and light blue) pigment her ears, eyes, nose, scar, and ear tufts. Besides her spots and stripe, Metea also has off-white paws, chest, and tail. Those markings are joined with a dark gray ring around each one. Thanks to a raptor attack at birth, Metea has two visible scars - one on her shoulder and a torn ear. Fortunately, no blow from that misfortune has been strong enough to break or fracture any bones. Metea has yet to show off any strong muscles, but her average size and light bone structure are worthy tools for fighting and hunting. Finally, although this feline's soft, thin coat doesn't provide much shelter against rain and the cold, it lets Metea be able to not feel threatened by the sun's heat.

Personality Types - Lawful Good, (mbti to be added later)

-easily distracted

[Bullet; Green Empathetic] - Metea strives to be kind to others - she never wants to hurt others' feelings on purpose. Whenever someone is hurt in some way, physically or not, she always feels pity, and normally attempts comforting them. Sometimes this doesn't work however, and Metea, who is unsure of what to do next in this situation, often resigns to a lone place in attempt to comfort herself from her failure. Although her knowledge of medicinal herbs is limited, she still also wants to help others when they are physically injured, occasionally even asking for advice on how to treat others. But this happens rarely, as she is normally introverted and uncomfortable asking others for help.

[Bullet; Green Thoughtful] - Metea enjoys thinking about life and wondering about certain things in life that puzzle her. Sometimes when she's around someone she trusts, she asks about their opinion on life and ideas. She has, however, a pretty vivid imagination because of how she thinks, and so she can create wild theories about certain subjects that even she can question herself, either fully turning down her idea or completely believing the thought. 

[Bullet; White Shy] - As mentioned before, Metea can feel uncomfortable, anxious, or shy around cats that she had never really known or talked to before. She tries to hide this, usually, though it can sometimes be pretty clear to see.  After talking to her for a while, and getting to know her, though, Metea does become more open and talkative, especially in conversations where she can voice her opinion.

[Bullet; Red Dwelling] - Metea has trouble forgetting and not focusing on things that happened in the past. If she makes one mistake in something, she can trouble herself with worry for a while - possibly a few hours - about what others will think of her. If she sees someone else doing something she doesn't particularly appreciate, she can hold it against them without meaning to. This can cause her some emotional anxiety sometimes, and cause her to feel somewhat alone at times. 

[Bullet; Red Impatient] - Even for such a shy cat, Metea can really snap whenever a task takes unnecessarily long. If someone is working with her on something, and are taking more time than she would on a job, she can be surprisingly snappy! If her partner in the project doesn't continue taking so long, she does normally calm down and apologize for her outbreak. If the cat continues behaving slowly, however, Metea can get really angered at her partner(s), and can take a while to regain her normal friendly and occasionally anxious nature.

Brief History

Prologue: Metea doesn't remember much from her early life. All she remembers is a mysterious screech, a cat howling, and a feeling of rough feathers and wind against her skin. She remembers seeing everything blurrily, with a gray catlike figure staggering toward her. Then she remembers more noises, and a few voices debating something, and being picked up by a gentle feline jaw and being carried away.
This is all she remembers before her life at the South Region.

What really happened was that as a very young kit, less than even a few moons old, Metea was attacked by an eagle as her father Ash was hunting. Her mother, Lila, was protecting her and her light gray tabby brother Ethan as they were sleeping in their cave home. The eagle, however, managed to make off with Ethan, causing Lila to chase after it in desperation. But as it turned out, the eagle wasn't alone - it had come with a younger raptor, perhaps one of its own children. It grabbed Metea and soared off, its prey in its unforgiving claws. However, as Metea's father wasn't at home and had a good view of the sky as he was hunting, he spotted his child. Being a good jumper, Ash was able to injure the younger eagle's wing, but unfortunately was not able to retrieve his daughter. But later, the eagle did become weak from the injury, and fell upon South territory. After Metea lay there for a reasonable amount of time, a patrol of three found Metea and took her into their group.

But what became of Metea's parents? Lila chased after the eagle carrying one of her children  so far, she was so lost, she couldn't return home. The eagle flew farther and farther away, until eventually Lila couldn't go longer. Weary from exhaustion and grief, she simply fell onto the ground and didn't want to get up, until a family of four found her: a mother, a father, and two kits. Lila was eventually comforted by them, and ended her life as a loner living near that family's home. As for Ash, he never found the rest of his family again, and suffered a less comfortable fate. After treading onto Follower territory and being attacked by them and being left for dead, he gave up his search and retired to living in a makeshift den near West territory. He died a moon later from infected wounds. 

Lila was a white-furred searcher of West territory in her younger years. She was determined, gentle, and overall much like her future daughter. One significant difference between her and her female kit, however, was her confidence. Having never any hardships for a long time, she was a natural born leader. If only the incident that would happen in her later years hadn't happened, maybe Metea would have shared that trait. Metea's father Ash, though, was a dark gray tabby loner who lived on the outskirts of Lila's group. He was a collected, clever, rather flirtatious feline. One time as Lila was out looking for ability stones, she encountered Ash hunting - on her group's territory! Angered, she leaped upon him, inquiring what he was doing. He hissed in reply, "I didn't know I was not supposed to hunt here! I won't hunt here again if cats are jumping around whenever I want a snack. Just get off of me now, I'll leave if you want." Lila did, and returned home silently questioning the stranger. Eventually, she began regularly meeting him, and eventually confessing her love toward him. When Ash replied that he had the same feelings for her, they agreed to keep this a secret. Even if Lila was a rather extroverted cat, she still refused to let her friends and family know that she was in love with a rogue. Later, however, when Lila began expecting kits after, she knew her time at her birth home was up. She admitted this to her mate, and they ran away to retreat into a small cave near a few mountains close to North territory. There they lived, and there were their kits born, up until the event which caused Metea to live her life not as a rogue, but a South member. 

History (kithood): As said earlier, Metea barely remembers anything from before her life in South Region. She only remembers noises, blurry figures, and voices. She does remember one thing, however - the name Metea. So this was why she decided to be called this - after her mother, dead sibling, who knows, maybe that was the name her parents have given her! She wanted to give some sort of tribute to them of their name choice. 
In South Region, as a kitten, she was never completely in touch with her young companions. She was born into an independent family that lived far from the the four regions, and as a late bloomer when it came to opening her eyes, always was anxious meeting others her age and speaking to others in general. Alas, Metea was never really open to others; she was still unsure about her past, and so she never really made any friends yet. Instead, she would retreat to where the elders would sit. She'd listen to their stories, and was able to communicate with them, thus gaining more confidence in herself. Now that she's a little more confident in herself, she hopes that as a rookie, she'll be able to be more open and get to know others more.

Rookiehood: In the early days of Metea's Rookiehood, she was interested in the hunter rank because of what had happened to her in her early life. That is to say, she wanted not learn how to fight cats, but how to fight whatever had driven away her parents. She had a feeling that whatever had attacked was not a cat. As for recieving her first ability stone, she was terribly excited and nervous. She never believed she would come this far! She felt ready to show everyone how good of a rookie she would be.

RolePlay Sample

Metea sat under the cooling shade of the oak tree, soaking up the cold of its refreshing shade, away from the piercing rays of the orange sun. As she watched her fellow kits in front of her, playing vigorous games of chase, she considered joining them. She sighed. No. Remember last time? I fell and hurt my paw...She winced, remembering how it hurt like a thousand bumblebees. No, let's not think of THAT again. Metea looked up. A fly was buzzing over her head, just out of reach. Metea's light blue eyes widened. Why hadn't she noticed that bug before? She sprang up and attempted catching the black insect, yet it somehow escaped to a refuge in a knot in the oak behind her. Metea sat under it, her gray tail swishing, frustration burning through her veins. 

Role-playing Methods 
I'd highly prefer notes!! As I no longer have a Skype, notes would be easiest. I can substitute with Google Hangouts if you prefer it more, though :0
