Current leader of SleetClan.
“There may be a herb for just about every ailment or injury, but much to my disappointment there is not one that could make you less irritating or even tolerable” — Petrelfrost to Coriandersprig.
Large, fluffy, thick and long furred, snowy white Norwegian forest cat tom. His pelt has small blue-gray spots that slowly fade to a darker shade. His legs start out as pale silver, and eventually fade to ashy black paws. His tail is very fluffy and plume-like with a medium grey tail tip. Petrel's eyes are an emotionless and dull cobalt blue, with tiny flecks of various shades of blue mixed in. He is very well-muscled and has a medium, but robust, frame. His claws are long and slightly hooked. Has no scars at all and while his pelt is long, thick, and fluffy, it is always well kept and almost completely water proof. Ears have tufts of white fur in them.

Petrelstar is often expressionless, or seeming to have a slightly stern gaze despite any situation. He has a very thick Norwegain accent, yet speaks in a flat manner with a mostly monotone. He is rather intelligent, and spends most of his time in solitude thinking, collecting herbs, or working on his own. He is very reclusive and secretive in nature, seldom trusting any cat for very long. He is blunt, preferring not to beat around the bush even if it upsets others. He is known for his skill and dedication to medicine and the task of healing, becoming the medicine cat who trained more apprentices than any cat before, often stepping in when medicine cats disappeared, or died from other causes. He can be seen as harsh or cold hearted, but is not like that for those who he trusts. It is known of him to be fairly snarky, as well as a stickler to the rules. He shows disdain to those who don't follow any code as they should. He is fearless and will not hesitate to charge into battle, but he definitely would rather want to plan things out. He tries to lead his Clan to the best of his ability, while trying to avoid making enemies from much early on.

Petrelfrost was born as Petrel the loner to Solstice and Morningtide. He was the second litter between them, being the only kit born that time. His older brothers, Mackerel and Firefly, were born in the first litter. His name came from his love of water and fish, as well as his feather like fur. His kithood den was a large cave system in a frozen tundra. Since Petrel and his family lived so far away from the other cats, he played with his brother and two cousins (who happened to live near by) the most. He spent most of his time with Mackerel, wanting to be as much like him as possible. It got to the point where he wanted to be with him more than he wanted to be with Morningtide. Petrel admired Mackerel the most, but still liked Firefly very much (even if he [I]did[/I] find him a bit annoying).
When Petrel was 4 moons old, his family took him hunting for the first time. Unfortunately, it would be the last time he ever saw them. While they were crossing the frozen river beneath a frozen waterfall, the ice began to crack. It was thawed from the unseasonably early spring and was much weaker than normal. All of his family barely had anytime to react as the force of the waterfall broke the ice encasing it, the water thundering down onto the river below. The ice cracked quickly, all of the cats falling in and struggling to swim as the waves created by the waterfall swept them away. Petrel had managed to sink his small claws into a broken ice piece, hanging on as he was rapidly pushed down river. He fell unconscious after the ice slammed into a rock, causing him to hit his head.
He woke up in an unfamiliar and warm place on the sandy shore. Not knowing what happened to his family, he started to seek them out. He spent most of his time traveling, and occasionally stayed with a loner for a night. He eventually came upon the border to MeadowClan, and believed his brother, Mackerel, was there. He was found heading towards camp by warriors, and was taken into the clan. He was named Petrelkit and settled in. He made friends with another kit named Rabbitkit, who was his only friend there. Soon after joining, Cranberrycloud picked him as his apprentice. Petrelpaw then vowed to do his work as best as he could.
He drifted apart from other cats, and gave up looking for his family. Deciding he didn't want to have to emotionally lose anyone again, he shut himself off and became the icy-hearted cat that he is today. He dedicated all of his time to either studying, working, or hunting for herbs. He quickly became skilled and well respected despite his cold demeanor he now had. Petrelpaw showed disdain for the other medicine cats from the other clans due to the fact that they didn't seem to take work seriously. Petrel liked only his mentor, and barely tolerated the rest.
When he got his full name, he was made Petrelfrost. The -frost suffix being chosen due to his cold and biting personality, bitterness, and to honor the place where he was born. After Cranberrycloud ran away, Petrelfrost worked even harder to prove himself. He became arguably the best medicine cat the forest has ever seen, inventing new practices and training others. While he was emotionally cold, he understood other cats and their behaviors extremely well, and was able to analyze their behaviors down to a single reason.
One day when he was sorting herbs in the back, Moonfish (MC warrior) came in for treatment. While he was patching her up, she mentioned Mackerelkit and how he left the clan. Upon further questioning, Moonfish revealed that Mackerelkit [I]was [/I]indeed the one who matched his brother's description, and had left the clan a moon before he joined. Petrel wasted no time getting ready to leave to find his family member. Petrelfrost had no apprentice at that point, so he chose Creekkit to take his place, said his goodbyes, and left to find Mackerel.
After two moons of searching, he found Mackerel. The two quickly caught up and soon lived together, but Petrelfrost still occasionally missed the clans (as much as he claimed to hate them). He moved to linger around them more, coming back to train Creekpaw as well as many others.
One day, Spiderblood (MC med cat) came to Petrelfrost as he was walking along the MC border. Knowing her from having a training session or two with her, he coldly greeted her and then to his shock (and mild disgust) he realized she was pregnant. Spiderblood told him everything, including that the father was Deathberry (DC med cat). Spiderblood wanted him to take the kits once they were born so that they wouldn't live a life in judgement and hate from the clans. Petrel agreed to it but only if Spider never let it happen again. Spiderblood kit at the gathering after talking to him, and he was there in time to help and to take the kits.
A moon or a few later, the big battle between Torrent Clan allied with Meadow Clan versus Dawn Clan was to happen. Petrelfrost joined in as a medic. During the battle, he helped to save cats' lives and to drive back the rogues when he wasn't healing. The other medicine cats were tending to cats on the edges of the battle while he was in the center of it, when a rogue went to attack Hootpaw and the other medicine cats. The rogue attacked, Spiderblood was heavily injured from jumping in the way to save Hootpaw, and Hootpaw's tail was ripped off. Petrelfrost quickly killed the rogue and healed his fellow medicine cats. Spiderblood later bled out at the battle end, dying as she helped other cats. Petrelfrost believed this was the ultimate redeeming action to repay Light Clan for having kits, and he has since not let a single cat disgrace her name or her work because of her noble actions. Spiderblood's apprentice was untrained when she died, and Petrel stepped in as the temporary medicine cat to train Bubblepaw, as well as Mintpaw because Deathberry had also passed away.
Petrelfrost reconnected with his actual apprentice, Creeksong. The two met at a border, and Creeksong admitted he didn't feel happy since he was no longer a medicine cat. Petrel offered for Creeksong to come be a loner, and invited Creeksong to live with him. He loner, and lives with his cousin, Creeksong, and two kits, adopted from Spiderblood.
Petrelfrost eventually met Glitteringfrost, leader of the Pack of Falling Sleet. One night, be brought the pack to one of the gatherings, where he declared the Pack of Falling Sleet as a new clan due to the aura that showed during that night. He lead the newly formed SleetClan to their new camp, taking the duty of medicine cat until one could replace him. Once the clan had another medicine cat, we resumed his duties as a warrior and eventually became Glitteringstar's deputy, taking over as leader when her time came.
