BeachClan

Clan description...

"The water has been our home since the waves called out to us, our ancestors once lived on these shores, hunted these waters and now so do we. we lay nestled against the hard rocky walls and watch the harsh waves cascade into the shore underneath us as we watch from the cliffs. Sunbathing on the rocks and occasionally travelling into the pine forests to the west. we hunted the waters and felt no fear in the currents, we are beachclan and our ancestors reefclan watch over us from the deep. underneath the water, our ancestors will keep us afloat through the hardest times." [104/100]

Information...

Lead by MackerelReef, StormHeart and in small way, FlowerPond, BeachClan stands out for being a clan for the wanderers, the lost and weery. There's said to be a pull for those looking for a new chance here, that leads any and all to it's haven if they just listen.
A beach side clan all about giving cats a new chance at life. While most clans are vicious when it comes to their borders BeachClan is noticably lax.
Their diet consists almost completely of fish with the occasionally birds and mammals from the nearby pine forest.

“My family is my life, and everything else comes second as far as what’s important to me.” –Michael Imperioli

Territory...

The territory stretches along the seashore, the territory is filled with cliffs, sand, pines and clear blue water. The camp is settled amongst a hidden cove, soft sand under paw and stone cliffs covering from behind and the stone outcroppings covering the worst the ocean has to offer. To the northern side of the territory is doted in step cliffs, rocky outcrops leading into the distance. To the south are sand and stone pools, safe enough for apprentices to learn the art of swimming in the ocean. Located on a rocky outcrop is the sacred place of the clan, cats wait for a low-tide when a rocky path is revealed and climbing to the top of the outcrop is possible. [clan territory: 120/100]

Traditions...

THE WHISPERER FIRSTBORN
the firstborn of a coral whisperer is assigned the title of acolyte- a compromise for letting them have kits. they assist with ceremonies, queenings and memorials for the dead. they train as warriors but have minimal training in herbs.
CEREMONIES
from births to new mateships, the clan has ceremonies and celebrations for every event and often make up new ones. the clan leader, deputy and acolyte are the ones who organise and lead them.
MEMORIALS
When any cat dies on BeachClan's territory the clan finds a sizeable piece of driftwood to lay out their dead upon. Once they are on the driftwood, the clan members bring flowers and decorate the body. The acolyte will be pulled aside by clanmates who were close to the deceased and informed about their favourite memories. During the afternoon the Acolyte will give a speech before the clan, detailing the memories they were told and the story of the deceased time in the clan. Once the moon starts rising the driftwood is pushed out to sea, escorted by waverunners if needed. If the body travels safely into the horizon it means they are with reefclan and have received their place among the reefs. [123/100]

Reputation...

The cats of beachclan are known for being whimsical and spiritual, cats who build and defend their family with their life. while most clans follow starclan, reefclan is where their ancestors watch over them. this disagreement over where their ancestors go is what causes most clan's to have a downward view of beachclan. all and all beachclan is known for its beliefs, traditions and value in family.
