Erikr was a black smoke and white tom with ghost stripes and piercing yellow eyes. The tom was local to the territories before the Clans came into existence. He had the luck of becoming the founder of ShadeClan, a group that claimed his homeland in the thick pine forest.

The tom became a driving force in early traditions for ShadeClan, some of which are still in effect for his modern ancestors. Erikr was described as a merciless tom with a driving need to conquer what he didn't have. Sadly, the tom passed away from old age only days off of seeing his grandchildren.



Erikr was a large cat with a build that eventually would influence the way modern ShadeClan cats are meant to look. He had a stocky build with shorter legs that were thick with muscle. This tom was a literal force to be reckoned with. He stood about half a head taller than most other toms, so he could tower over most of his rivals without really trying. The tom had a thick, medium-length pelt that by the end of his life, was tattered beyond belief. He had deep scars around his neck and belly from numerous fights throughout his life. They never healed well so the fur never grew back around the area. Erikr also had deep scars on his muzzle and head where it appears something larger than a cat had tried to pick him up and take him away.
The tom had a black smoke pelt. His pelt was primarily black, especially on his back. From there it faded slightly to a lighter grey. He also had some ghost striping here and there and it should be mentioned his legs were considerably darker than any other point on his body. Erikr had some white spotting along his belly, muzzle and his toes. Like his previous scars, his ears were quite beaten up too. His right ear alone was almost completely gone by the end of his life and he also appeared to have rheumy eyes. His eyes were a piercing yellow and often or not his pupils were slits, making him appear quite snake-like to some.


Now, Erikr, was an absolutely despicable character in short. Something along the lines of what happened to him growing up shaped the way he would act and treat others as an adult. It has alluded to that Erikr faced quite a challenge growing up due to the way his family was structured. He was essentially raised without proper love or care, except for the hidden affection given to him by his mother - that was, up until she was murdered by the group's former leader. Erikr became a pawn in a battle he had no idea about and became this cruel and calculating beast. The tom basically would follow any order he was given and execute it with precision.
That was until he broke his 'programming'. At some stage, Erikr decided enough was enough. Maybe it was the haunting nightmares he began to suffer after seeing the faces of those he had thoroughly ended. So, in short, the tom snapped and eliminated his former controllers. That began a new chapter where he was now free to control his own destiny. Essentially, this was the cat many learned to respect or fear. Erikr became an excellent leader of sorts. He knew how to keep his cats from committing mutiny or any other crime and he also remained popular. Erikr managed to become quite influential amongst his own cats and is remembered for his leading style by his kin.
Let it also be said that even after founding ShadeClan, the tom would still occasionally have to revert back to his old teachings. He wasn't afraid of resorting to violence come anything if he couldn't get his way. Erikr was known for his desire to conquer what he couldn't always have. He would have blood instead if that would, for the lack of better phrasing, quench the thirst he often had. After all his struggles, all he wanted was the best for he believed he deserved it.


As previously mentioned and noted, Erikr was an insanely talented fighter. He was raised in an odd environment and was taught how to protect himself and how to kill. That was the basis of all the attention he received as a child (it wasn't much outside of these two things). In short, Erikr's fighting style relies heavily on stealth most of the time. However, if he is out in the open he has size and weight on his side to overpower his opponents. The tom was arguably what would've been called an assassin for the early part of his life - having to chase down targets and eliminate them. Following his freedom, he only used his extensive skill set to further his territory and place as ShadeClan's founding leader.

Love Interests

Unnamed she-cats

Now, to put it quite simply, Erikr had quite the harem of lovers. The tom wasn't exactly a womanizer, no he couldn't really care about them. Instead, he was much more focused on ensuring he had kin to take over his rule. This ideology was the beginning of a tradition for his then young Clan. Sure, the tom might have had favoured partners due to their success as mothers or simply for their looks. But, they all remained as 'pawns' to him so that he may continue to conquer even in death. That was what Erikr was about.
