Silkflower takes some warrior names by their literal meanings.
Hello! In this article we are going to take warrior names very literal. Let’s start!
Rainflower— A flower that rains? Ok?
Ferncloud—does she rain leaves? No? What does she rain? Green rain?
Bluestar—Blue stars are stars that have at least 3 times the mass of the Sun and up. Whether a star has 10 times the mass of the Sun or 150 solar masses, it’s going to appear blue to our eyes. An example of a blue star is the familiar Rigel, the brightest star in the constellation Orion and the 6th brightest star in the sky. The hottest stars are blue, with their surface temperatures falling anywhere between 10,000 K and 50,000 K. A blue supergiant is a hot, luminous star, often referred to as an OB supergiant. They have luminosity class I and spectral class B9 or earlier. Blue supergiants are found towards the top left of the Hertzsprung–Russell diagram, above and to the right of the main sequence. In exchange for their tremendous size and energy, blue supernovas have short lifespans. They only live around 10 million years, which sounds like a long time … until you realize the sun can live to be 10 billion. While they’re alive, blue supergiants produce a tremendous amount of energy within themselves. Is she really all of that? I don’t believe it. (Can’t argue with science.)
Alderheart—is his heart made of alder? Yes? No? Why is he named that?
Juniperclaw— umm… I thought juniper berries were red…
Bristlefrost—is she bristling her fur all the time, then it got frosted? That might happen, because if she was bristling her fur in the lake were Rootspring fell into, when she got out, her fur is going to be frozen in the bristling pose!
Icewing— hey! Is warriors copying wings of fire by naming her Icewing?
Crookedjaw—that makes sense. He has a crooked jaw. (What if Brambleclaw was named that?)
Thistleclaw—he has claws made of very sharp thistles? That explains why he was able to kill Antfur so easily.
Tigerclaw— does he have tiger claws?
Feathertail— ooh, is she having a feather as a tail? or is she a feathertail glider? The Feathertail glider is endemic only to Australia. As a matter of fact, this animal is the smallest gliding possum and one of the smallest known gliding mammals. The animal is so called due to its tail, which looks like a bird’s feather, and is composed of long, stiff hairs, pointing down on both sides. The short fur of the possum is brown-grey in color. The thick membranes between the elbows and knees help the animal when gliding, while the serrated pads on its toes allow the glider to easily stick to smooth surfaces. The Feathertail glider is a native Australian species, found across much of the eastern and south-eastern parts of Australia. Its range stretches from Cape York (Queensland), reaching south-eastern South Australia. The animal has also been spotted on Fraser Island, located off the southern coast of Queensland. The feathertail glider can live in a wide variety of habitats from tall open forests and sclerophyll forests to woodlands but usually prefers wet and old-growth forests to dry or regenerating areas. This possum can also be seen near suburban areas. Probably not her. She died in a cave, not a rainforest.
Moonflower—Moonflower is a tender perennial vine that can add incredible beauty and powerful fragrance to a night garden. Often grown as an annual outside of its tropical and subtropical USDA hardiness zones, this vine is sometimes regarded as a night-blooming species of morning glory. It features large, heart-shaped, dark green leaves on robust, slightly prickly stems. Its trumpet-shaped flowers begin blooming in mid-summer and last until fall. They are typically an iridescent white and grow around 6 inches long and 3 to 6 inches wide.1
The blooms unfurl from cone-shaped buds as the sun goes down, as well as on cloudy days. They stay open all night, exuding their sweet fragrance into the air, before closing up again the next morning.
Moonflowers, as a member of the Ipomoea genus along with morning glory, is recognized as having hallucinogenic seeds and being mildly toxic to humans and pets. Gardeners should be cautious about their use of any Ipomoea species in homes with small children or where dogs, cats, or horses are present.
Conefoot—is his foot a cone or what? How does he walk?
Squirrelflight—is she a flying squirrel, or does she fly like a squirrel?
That’s all, hope you liked it!
