Personality

Traits

  •  +  Witty - He has the clever eye of a fox. Genuinely he shows his lighter "snarky humor" to young felines his age hoping to charm them. Often this skill is needed to give an injured cat relief.
  •  +  Perceptive - This is a very good trait for someone of his practice. He must be careful. His job is not only to check the physical injuries but the mental injuries as welll. Being able to tell what is wrong with a feline is key.
  •  +  Playful - Nightmoth tends to be immature and optimistic, depending on his mood. Sliding in a joke or two in the most serious of moments. Sometimes the tom acts oblivious to his duties to get a gist out of injured or sick cats. His jokes are never dark or downing however, just simple teases encouraging a feline to do better. At least that what he intends. Due to not always being the best mood, Nightmoth's mischievous attitude is rare.
  •  +  Protective - He's more so a guardian to his herbs and his patients. He comes off as very nurturing in a gentle way. Nightmoth is often known to vow to an injured cat's safety. Despite this his cowardice would get in the way. He is know brave cat but his heart is in the right place. His herbs and his patients seem to kept in a priority explainable to most cats.
  •  +  Romantic - He's the Romeo to almost everyone. He's no knight in shinning armor to rescue his prince or princess but he is the local pastor that nobody would mind tinkering with. Or at least that how he sees it. Nightmoth himself is very flirtatious around cats he takes a liking to. Even in the most serious moods Nightmoth can't seem to help himself by taking a shot with Cupid's Bow. He tends to be a hopeless romantic.
  •  ±  Knowledgeable -- Nightmoth is a handy brainiac. His memory is rather extensive of that of an average feline. It helps him keep stock of his herbs and remember important dates for other felines. Keeping mental notes in his mind, Nightmoth is a walking catalog. However he finds no joy in what he knows. He perhaps lives a more melancholy moment thinking back to what he knows.
  •  ±  Sarcastic - Sassy, this feline is. He snaps perhaps at this most annoying ticks even though they can't understand him. Nightmoth takes advantage of those ignorant cats who simply do not understand his witty charm. This may cause him to come off as arrogant and pumpus, but it is only a sign of bitter humor.
  •  ±  Prideful - Nightmoth's biggest flaw is his pride. He lets it get in the way of everything. He takes a compliment to his craft as a worshiper's praise. Even so the sensitive cat lets his pride be a boost of self-esteem. He often leads to a positive view as a medicine cat. As much as he brags, he is not bad at his job nor is he an amateur. All though he is not the best like he perceives to be, Nightmoth is gifted. However his hubris does not cut short at other's demeaning comments. His opinions simply grow to facts. One day, this pride may harm more cats than it help himself
  •    Cranky - The tom is bothered by little things. Leafs falling on his clean pelt, the annoying chatter of early young warriors, and the simple sounds of the creaking tree that wake him up. All of these minor things seem to throw off the tom's overall mood. Nightmoth lets them effect him in all and makes him come off as rude. He simply lets his bad morning mood get the best of him.
  •    Perverted - The normally innocent looking tom wouldn't seem to have a lustful agenda, but he does. Sometimes if he takes interest in cat he will persistently flirt until they leave his presence. Perhaps he thinks of himself as very handsome, so why not swing a try at a handsome tom or beautiful molly.
  •    Impatient - Nightmoth can't sit still. Unless he's napping or eating, he likes to get what he wants when he wants it. Often he throws tantrums if he doesn't get his way immediately. As Nightmoth approaches his prime he tries to keep this to a minimum. He simply can't help becoming a little heated when something isn't presented to him right away. This is especially true when herbs are expected to be delivered to him.
  •    Sensitive - If his pride in a situation were to grow to where it was his only armor, Nightmoth is more tender than ever. His sensitivity goes overboard. Even so in more damaging sitations, the tom is prone to crying and throwing a tantrum, it seems as if he had never growwn up in these moments.
  •    Immature - Solidly, Nightmoth loves to do stuff that he shouldn't. Often times he makes jokes about the failures of others. Aside from that, Nightmoth gets aweful angry when one admits a negative truth about him.

Likes

  • Flora
    • He has had a fondness of flora since he opened his eyes. As a kit he would always bring it to his brother and decorates his pelt with flowers. The leaf crown on his head is always there to symbolize his love for plants
  • Mischief
    • As long as it isn't targeted at him Nightmoth likes to get into trouble. Perhaps he likes to see other's angry or flustered, it gives him the reminder that he's not the only hot-tempered feline in the world.
  • Food
    • Nightmoth's period of feeling down seemed to been of cured by a love from eating berries when he was feeling down. He takes advantage of his inablity to hunt and snakes away, especially when prey is plentiful.

Dislikes

  • Rain
    • He's never been fond of rain. He retreats to his den when puddles form and comes out when the wet stuff as dried. Nightmoth has always felt as the rain is a threat to his pretty face.
  • Talkative Cats
    • Nightmoth is a recognizable introvert who enjoys the quiet and being alone. Often times he'll show this in his cranky attitude by yelling at kittens who dare explore his lair. However he seems to have more beef with talkative felines than ever. On the contrary, Nightmoth's definition of talkative can be exaggerated to a feline speaking an extra word.

Goals

  • Being the best Medicine Cat
    • His goal to be the best is rather minute due to the fact of him knowing that him being such a gifted and well known medicine cat is minute. His skills are still yet to be perfected. He's never lost a feline before in his practice when it is not expected, but he's never healed the blind either. Perhaps its hopeless, but its still a dream.
  • ""Seducing"" a Mate(DONE)
    • Perhaps he lets his mind drift to his heart way to much. He yearns something to love more than anything. Of course he has his brother, but he could never love him more beyond being a friend. Of course all of this goal is connected to sexual desire, but its hard not to blame him for wanting a lover.

Fears

  • Hatred
    • If his exile wasn't enough Nightmoth couldn't bare for anymore cats to frown upon him. This fear of being hated has often caused him to be a people-pleaser in the past. He tries his best to uphold his reputation in ShadowClan the best he can.

"I miss her, best if I move on,"
*Nightmoth shrugs*

Its so much better in ShadowClan, nobody judges you for your eyes and I know longer have to shut them. No more bullies, no more worries. Perhaps I have still less a liking to the lack of plump rabbits I received as a kit, but if I'm lucky a rabbit will wander into ShadowClan's territory and right between my paws!

Trivia

  • Nightmoth has mild scopophobia, when in a particular position he would like to be out of and being stared at tends not to be a good mix for him.
  • He is an unlikely mix of WindClan and loner blood, no ShadowClan at all.
  • Nightmoth is a bossy fellow. Often he feels as if the medicine cat duty is to be everyone's adviser.
  • Tropes
    • Would hit a girl: The medicine cat has a tendancy to be brutal. He believes in gender equality of course, he'd do the same thing to a tom-cat. That is as long as they are just as dainty as him. He wouldn't hurt anyone bigger or more muscular.
    • Fatal Flaw: Nightmoth's pride may or may not get him killed. Perhaps his hubris may too much for a cat who determines the fate of the wounded.
  • Nightmoth is rather out of shape, he often could pass with a build similar to a kittypets.
