leader of lightningclan
The sun stood proudly at it's peak. No shadows were cast, nothing to tempt the Clan into thoughts of sorrow. It was to be a glorious day. Firestar asked everyone to be home by sunhigh, eat a small meal and wait for a meeting to be called. From where she sat just outside her den. The warm sun easing into her dull coat, bringing out the colors.
Brightpool groomed her pelt lazily in the warmth of the sun. Kits toyed with a dried up mossball, an elder had ventured out to watch over the future warrior. It was moments like this that brought back a sliver of hope to Firestar's gradually growing frame. Grief still pulled at her heart and recovery remained slow but steady. What more could she ask for?
Climbing the hill to stand before her Clan, she gave a yowl. Gathering the attention of those around her. Patiently waiting for the Clan to come together, her eyes fell upon Lynxpaw. It was time.
"Lynxpaw, please step forward," Her pride as a mother shone through in the strength of her words. Once Lynxpaw stood before her, she continued to speak. "I call upon our warrior ancestors to look down on this apprentice." Firestar paused, giving a moment for it all to sink in. "She has trained hard to understand the ways of our code, I commend her to you as a warrior. Lynxpaw do you promise to uphold the warrior code, protect and defend your Clan even at the cost of your life?" No mother would be happy to state such words, but traditions demanded so. She waited for Lynxpaw's vow, quietly praying that StarClan would grant her a long life.
Lynxpaw's vow spoken, Firestar couldn't stifle the purr that sounded for just the two of them to hear. This moment wasn't Firestar naming a warrior. It was a mother recognizing that her daughter was ready to go on her own. Firestar knew she'd always worry and fret but she'd have to let go. Accept what she could not change and embrace the future that no one knew.
"Then by the power of StarClan, I give you your warrior name. Lynxpaw, from this moment you will be known as Lynxfire. I give you this name not out of vanity. You are like fire, capable of everything. You have faced every challenge no matter large. You are a warrior that LightningClan can be proud of. StarClan honors your ferocity and determination, and we welcome you as a full warrior of LightningClan," The moment the ceremony concluded, Firestar was the fire to shout her daughter's new name. Proclaimed it loudly for Lynxfire was worthy of such praise.
