In the beginning all felines lived in Skytribe, this land was places in the dark skies above the water. It was the only land that could be found, for you see the water did not have land yet, it was not needed. All animals lived on Skytribe, from Firefly, to Bear they lived as once, but they had no names, no form, they were formless spirits. In Skytribe there were marshes that transformed into flat plains...those plains eventually rose at their edges causing steep mountains with rivers cutting through them. Forests were a popular place for some spirits, they lives amongst the tall trees, some on the ground. All was at peace in Skytribe, for as long as The Tree of Omens was intact it would be.
Time passed and the leader of Skytribe fell ill, his name was: Ground which sprouts beautiful flower. His wife, Leaf fallen from great tree, came to his aid, asking what she could do to help him. Ground said that for him to be healed she would need to get the healing feather at the top of The Tree of Omens. Feathers were rare since there were no birds, only formless spirits. The Tree held everything needed, and so Leaf had thought the tree would heal her ill husband, but as she climbed up high, touching the top of the skies, she saw the feather. As she padded towards it, the tree began to speak! The tree..talked! It was a warning..
“Leaf fallen from great tree! You are forbidden to take the feather from me, for if you do, I will die, and Skytribe will fall into the waters, do you wish to continue? Is your love for your husband more then your people?” The tree spoke great words, but knew what the future held.
“My husband and I are one, without him I am as bare and lonely as the waters below.” She explained to the tree, the tree felt disappointed, it could not show it but it allowed her to feel his emotions.
“Then you may pluck the feather, but Skytribe will be no more, and you will be destined to live in the waters below, without your husband.” The Tree mewed, deciding hear punishment. The she-cat had plucked the feather, stubbornly, and with that, the tree began to fall, it broke a hole through the land of Skytribe, she raced back to her husband to find him gone, he was dead. She took the feather, and raced back to the hole, Skytribe was crumbling, pieces falling and sinking into the waters. She jumped down, knowing that some spirits were floating in the waters below she saw them. “Catch Skytribe!” She called out to the very large spirit floating in the water, the fall took months, for Skytribe was far up, and the feather slowed her movement, eventually through the months of falling her and the feather became one, and the feather instead of being a feather began to grow inside her as a child. She looked below as she came closer towards the land, it was huge, and she was now going faster without the feather, the spirit slammed into the land.
An explosion happened, she had hit the land so hard, that she had broken off parts of the spirit and skytribe, this is what formed islands. Leaf was no where to be found, but the dust of her spirit lifted up to form the sun, for when she hit she caused islands and fire, her place was now in the skies warming the new land. Below there was a kitten, the spirits raised him, for he was the first to be born, the first of many.
As he grew he became a To-be, he walked along the bare lands and decided they needed something softer then hard stone, and decided that grass will grow. “You will grow now, but when my mother does not warm you for moons, you must die, but my mother has grown me, and will grow you. You are my sister, Sister grass.” he repeated his phrase, naming every herb, every tree, and soon all lands on ground was named, and he was no longer lonely, for now he had many sisters. Now he needed brothers, he would create those as well. The spirit walked towards his Tribe-mate and pressed his nose against his formless body, “You are Brother mouse, you will scurry around, and use Sister grass for your growth.” He mewed, and then, the spirit formed into mice, and they broke off scurrying off. He repeated this until all the animals were named, yet he still felt lonely so to keep himself busy he gave them all jobs to do.
“Brother Bird will soar to the skies, you will bring back what is left of Skytribe.” Once he said it, they took off in flight. Now the spirits spoke different languages, but The First Born knew them all, it was his gift. He looked out into the waters, “Brother Whale, you already do your job, but you will keep land floating, while Sister Dolphin will move the waves towards you to keep you cool, and take them when you are too cold.” He mewed with a simple nod, “Brother Fish will move the water inside Rivers and streams, since Sister Dolphin cannot travel there.” After they understood he left, walking up to the valleys, sitting down he looked into a puddle, he had seen for the first time he had a form. He had two pointed ears, and a long tail, he did not look like the others, he was..his own. He placed stones in a shape to look like himself, and filled the stones with earth, he commanded that in three days a Sister will be born for him from this, and she will be his equal and they would be one, Mates, lovers, and inseparable. He was her, and she was him, forever they would walk the earth as one and produce more of the same, allowing their kind to grow.
Three days have passed, and he returned, seeing she there was nothing there he frowned, what did this mean? The supplies were gone, but she was not there. Behind him he heard pawsteps and a feminine voice, “Brother Cat.” she mewed, greeting him. “Sister Cat” He mewed back, “I name you Light that dances in skies.” He gave her, her name and pressed his nose against hers. “And you, my creator, my brother, are named Knowledge that shines through dark.” The two lived as one for years, having kittens, eventually once those kittens had kittens they were getting older.
“Brother Knowledge, where do we go once we age?” She asked him, wanted her kits to be safe. But they were young, and would not die, they were too strong, stubborn she-cat.
“Sister Light, if I throw this leaf in the stream and it floats, they will only be gone for one sunrise, and will return again at full health.” He mewed throwing the leaf in, and watching it float.
“No brother Knowledge, if I throw this pebble into the stream, and it sinks, then they will die forever, and allow more to grow, they will gather above in a new Skytribe.” She mewed unaware that she had just sealed her fate, her husbands fate and her unborn daughters.
“For that is what you say, and now it is law. All will die forever, never to reclaim their previous bodies.” This however allowed things such as reincarnation. Moons passed, and her husband, Knowledge had fallen ill and died, she mourned for him, but knowing it was her fault he would not be revived, there was now a light in the sky, showing Knowledge, this was the moon. For he would be near his mother now.
Their last daughter had been born, and was growing quickly, like all did. Her name was after her father, Moon that watches land. Eventually, Light grew too old and died as well, causing there to be stars now in the skies, showing she was with her mate, and they would always be one.
Well here is where I’ll start the tribe's history! Kit haven. Four Exiled Shadowclan kits, almost apprentice age found a new home. Wolfkit was the hunter out of the group, it was like a natural skill to him. Foxkit was a natural born fighter, and defended his family the best he could. Namikit was a master had herbs and medicine, she would make a great medicine cat if they were still in Shadowclan! Lastly, Nerukakit, a natural born leader. The set up their home in a cave system, and soon more and more kits come, soon Kit haven was large enough to be called a clan, EclipseClan. Neruka, now Nerukastar. Alongside her siblings NamiEclipse, WolfCharm and Foxtail, ran the clan.
Not long after one of the forbidden stars, Ecliipse came into Neruka’s mind. Telling her what to do and not to do. Sadly Neruka fell for Eclipse’s lies. Neruka went insane, and attacked the clans, ThunderClan and Windclan were the only ones attacked. Shadowclan was spared because they are of Neruka’s blood, and the fighting stopped before they could attack RiverClan.
Not long after this did The Try of the clear moon, lets call them Skytribe.. That Skytribe banish Eclipse to the land of no sun. [DarkForest]. Well ANYWAYS, Neruka had some kits! Ravenkit, Bloodkit, Thunderkit, and one kit that was stillborn Infernokit. This is when Eclipse tried to take over Raven and trick her, this worked at first, but when Raven fell in love, Eclipse was sent packin’!
Neruka could feel her insanity coming back and so left, leaving her tribe to her daughter, who was only a mere 8 moons. Now before she left she did one thing, Make EclipseClan a tribe, The tribe of the Burning Eclipse.
Raven led the tribe into a brighter side, she never claimed her lives until later, but she still did the best she could for them.
She had a litter at 9 moons, Alyzmi, Jade and Glow. Yet these kits never mean much, the night of her kitting, her mate was killed by Nocturnal, when she saw the body she swore she saw a bobcat running off, and so Raven is terrified of bobcats.
Moons went by of nothingness, until Raven got a message from Skytribe to attack Thunderclan, they got help from Sunclan but where defeated. After this Raven had went to shadowclan for advice, asking Winterstar if Skytribe had abandoned him, once this meeting was over she went to Moonstone. She had gotten 7 of her lives before hand, until she was interrupted. Now she was going to get the rest, after she did get the rest of her lives, she was attacked by Maskscar, and dragged to the shadowclan border. She suffered from short-term memory loss, but soon this was put to a end when Troch had to kill her to save her life. Raven heard news that her Mother had taken the tribe over again with BOBCATS of all things. She was angered and reached out for help, getting shadowclan to side with them, Raven and some shadowclanners went to Riverclan, when a meeting was help, Riverclan accepted, but during this meeting Winterstar was attacked by a badger. Loosing a life. Bobcats showed up and scared Raven away and the thread died. Raven ran to her aunt Crowfrost, where her and Torch stayed for a while until they rested up, Raven ended up mating with her cousin Myrne while there, and confessing her love for torch but ending up telling him it could never happen. Raven saw the clear moon in the sky and knew a gathering will be taken place, Her and torch ran there. And that is when Caesar, an evil bobcat attacked! Making Raven loose yet another life, and Also injuring Neruka.
A Group of cats teamed up and Caligula ended up giving the final bite killing him. Neruka, Caligula, Raven and Torch all had a meeting Neruka and her followers ended up leaving, swearing she will return for her land.
The volcano soon erupted for the second time, and the Tribe was forced to move from there long standing home, never knowing if they would ever be able to return to their haven. The remaining cats ran aimlessly as they tried to stay with their Tribe and family, and days flew by with the Tribe at a lose without shelter and safety. Many scattered and didn't return. After a period of time, they had found an abandoned burrow in a land belonging to ShadowClan and began to reside there for many moons. This time was in the days before the corruption of Ravennight, and before ShadowClan fell to the paws of NightClan; a deadly hell that had taken over the Clan Leader. Wolfkit and Foxkit became Wolfcharm
Over time, Fall of Broken Sun arrived back at the Tribe; not knowing she would soon find herself the Leader of the Tribe she had been separated from. She had been the one to announced Obsidian's absence, after noticing that she had not seen her in days since she had first found her way home to her Tribe. Things dramatically changed quickly from then on, and the Tribe decided they were going to attempt a move to the beach high in their old territory; though the threat of the volcano erupting once more was to great a risk, and their minds were quickly changed after they found a territory that would suit them well. It is the land once inhabited by SnowClan. After decisions made, Fall of Broken Sun, daughter of who was to be the true leader of the Tribe, was voted into power, and began the rise of Tribe of Burning Eclipse.
---Stuff after this is added by Piney, feel free to edit as needed---
Fall of Broken Sun disappeared after a few moons, and Eaglescreech was murdered. Leopard received this prophecy: During a great storm a Raven's chicks return, resting their wings over the Tribe, guiding a broken piece and echoing glass. Soon after, Fable of Forgotten Values and Radience of Lost Suns returned to assume leadership of the Tribe, ending the monarchy. Fragment and Songbird became the deputies.
