Physical Attributes: ShadowClan cats are generally very large in size, possessing the strong muscles needed to traverse the boggy territory, along with thicker fur to shield them from the cold. ShadowClanners usually have darker fur colors to blend in with the territory around them, and more simple patterns are also very common. Their eyes are often sharper colors like yellow or orange.
Mental Attributes: ShadowClanners are notoriously crafty felines, and are quite skilled in both witty speech and sly combat. They are also quite proud of themselves and their clan, and are willing to tussle at the slightest insult. This gives them quite the temper, and they are usually unable to keep it in check at times.
Preferred Prey: Reptiles and amphibians, such as lizards and frogs.
Hunting Specialties: ShadowClan cats specialize in stalking through the boggy marshes silently and unseen. Although they aren't the fastest cats in the forest, their large paws and strong haunches allow them to propel forward quickly enough to ensnare their prey.
Territory: ShadowClan territory is usually very boggy with many varieties of wetland flora blooming during the warmer seasons. During the colder seasons, however, the marshes freeze up, making the ground stronger underfoot and sending a perpetual chill through the air. Watery areas are uncommon, but can be found near the base of the mountain. (See ShadowClan's territory for more information).
Camp: ShadowClan camp is tucked into a natural ravine near the eastern part of the territory, and the rift is concealed by multitudes of foliage. The cats make their dens in the sides of the cliff or in natural debris left by the river that was previously there, like hollowed logs or toughened bushes. (See ShadowClan's camp and traditions + lore for more information).
