Tribe of Eons

Clan description...

They descended from the stars speaking in foreign tongues that invaded the mind and filled it with visions. There were hundreds that surrounded them, standing on a distant land soil. And so we were called, from distant lands and far-away shores. We carried a story in our hearts and a yearning in our bones for the Valley. On our journey we met one another, and shared our visions. Many had heard of the Clans, their warriors and StarClan, but none of Clans with their bastions and the Fields of Running Stars. And so they converged on the Valley.

There we learnt the story of the past, of the Tribe of Eons, humble, brave and fortunate. Who shared their lands with few, but also shared it with many. Those whose ancestors walked our land with them in spirit and the prey around them was respected like family. Predator spoke their language, and they spoke that of the prey. They respect the land they relied on and followed an ancient code. Now we follow their example, reforming an ancient tribe and reliving their legacy for generations as they had before.  [188/100]

Information...

Lead by Kestrel Flying,  Tribe of Eons, or as it's currently known, tribe of flittering kestrel are a group of lost souls, sheltered from the world by cliffs that tower over them. Generations in the past they were summoned from distant horizons to gather at the location they now know as home to build the Tribe of Eons; once before a hundred years, so we continue on a thousand more.
Placed in the gully of a mountain range, the tribe of eons are bold and loving with a well structured clan heirachy that has been honoured for a few generations. They are all the descendants of brave heroes who travelled far distances to reach a new home and they carry that with pride.

Don't hold a glass over the flame, don't let your heart grow cold
I will call you by name, I will share your road

Territory...

The clan's territory is larger in height than in width, The tribe of Eons is situated on the side of a mountain. Half of it's territory is made up of trees while the rest is paths leading up the rocky paths leading up and down the mountain side. Pine trees are vast and cover the territory with the odd spruce tree breaking what would otherwise be dominated by pine. To the edge of the territory a large river cascades freely, fed by a spring, deep under the earth. To one side of the territory is the sea shore, with no beach to be seen, just a long drop off cliffs. [110/100]

Territory Expanded...

The clan camp is settled beside a small spring, that flows from an underground spring. On one side of the camp is the creek and tiny waterfall, on the other side is a tall cliff that offers protection from most storms. The shared adult den, Apprentices and Leaders dens are located along the cliff face. The shared den of the ambassadors, assassins, bastions and rangers is located the furthest down the cliff face, leading into a tunnel that has the space to support some 25 cats. It has been known to flood during storms that cause the creek and spill over. The vagabond den is located a little higher then the shared adult den, it leads deep into the cliff, enough space to house 10 cats spaciously. Past apprentices have carved drawings into the walls with animal bones, these drawings often depict hunting, friendships or floods. The Leader's Den is located up high on the cliff, at the same height as the start of the waterfall. While the shared adults den and vagabonds den can be reached from the ground of the camp, low enough that jumping can get you inside, the leaders den is too high for that. A path leads up to the leader's den from across the waterfall's start. A ledge offers a position for the leaders to view the clan camp and give speeches. Behind the ledge is their den, a small alcove with minimal protection from the weather. Vagabonds may often sneak up and line the leaders nests with moss, feathers or other soft materials, they may also try to build a wall to offer more shelter from the elements. The Cleric, Seer and Prophet's den is shared with the Queens and Sages. Their is a clear divide between the the sections, this divide is made up of tree roots that have grown through the ceiling and into the ground. The herbs supply is in part kept in storage at the furthest end of the den but also there is a garden inside the camp, located between a fork in the creek. During the day Kit's are taken outside onto the grassy patch of camp by Elders, who teach them the Ancient code, the legend of Ka and why they need to respect their Leaders, Prophets, Seers and Clerics.

Traditions...

Naming ceremony
Upon the graduation of an apprentice there is a naimg ceremony held. A private celebration held between the mentors and family, the graduating apprentice then leaves to spend the night out upon the territory where they will recieve a vision of their true name. Come morning they are gifted the first fresh kill caught.

Dam's ceremony
upon the announcement of a cats pregnancy a feast is gathered for the parents to celebrate their new future together.

Rite of ascension
Once one of the monarchy die the first heir to take a mate and request the position of leader ascends to the leadership position. If two cats wish to ascend to the position they are sent out to Crystal Peaks with the last surviving member of the monarch; the Pack of Running Stars will send down an omen in the cats sleep; a marking in frost, signifying the new leader.

Reputation...

You wouldn't even know they existed and if you were amongst the cats who did you would hate them with a passion. These cats care deeply for their own, would fight to the death to protect their family but care very little for outsiders unless there is a possibility of recruitment. [51]

Beliefs...

Death's on time
it is the opinion of cats in the clan that every cat has a due date with death. A season and time that their natural death will come. No cat knows their time, although their ancestors do. To kill a cat is to go against the natural order of things and is strictly forbidden. 

We are nature
the clan has a deep respect for nature, their prey and predators. If a cat share's their true name with an animal of the land they are forbidden to hunt or kill that animal for they are their kin. That animal is their kin and it isn't uncommon for aspects of that creatures language to be slowly learned by a cat. Nature is something to be respected, the clan is a part of it and should respect the ground, trees and sky above them

Your True Name 
when an apprentice becomes eligible to be a grown member of the clan they journey to a high point away from their clan. There they will receive an omen from the stars, varying from visions to encounters with animals. There is no set 'way' an adolescent receives their true name but it is often seen as a life-changing moment. The birth name of a cat is often something simple, "Mint", "Starlight", "Frost" and their true name can be quite different, "Leaping Crickets", "Kestrel Flying", "Sunny Day".
