Orpheus is a rogue cat.  His parents are Aella and Somnus, and his sister is Icy.  Orpheus' parents were killed by an evil rogue group lead by a cat named Fang, when he was about eight moons old.  Fang threatened the family to make Orpheus join his group for a reason that still remains unknown.  Shortly after his parents died, he met a she-cat named Eurydice, and the two fell in love.  Sadly, a snake bit and killed Eurydice, and Orpheus fell into a deep depression.  He even traveled to the Eternal Darkness to try and save her, but failed.

Only a few weeks after Eurydice died, Orpheus' sister Icy fell ill. She was very close to death when a cat spirit came to Orpheus. The cat was from The Place of Eternal Darkness, a place where all evil cats go when they die. The cat spirit was Achlys, the ruler of the Eternal Darkness. She had disguised herself as a angelic Place of Starry Skies cat and said she would heal Icy if Orpheus agreed to do one deed for her, which she refused to speak about. Orpheus agreed, unaware of what he had just agreed to.

Icy was healed, as promised, but Achlys took over Orpheus' body an used him like a puppet, unlocking the strange and incredible powers gifted to the young tomcat.

Orpheus was transformed into an evil killing machine, the thing that he hated most.  He doesn't remember much of what happened during this time, but he often has nightmares about it.  He was freed from Achlys by Pegasus, the leader of the Starry Skies.


Orpheus is very quiet, caring, and shy.  His past seems to haunt him, but he tries to ignore it as much as possible and rarely talks about it.  He is deeply and truly in love with Eurydice and nothing could change that about him. He dislikes fighting, but will if he has to.  Orpheus is also very trusting and forgiving, but he is often betrayed.

Orpheus is very depressed when Eurydice is not around. He never smiles and rarely talks during this.

Orpheus can be very sneaky, deceptive, and witty. He can trick others easily, but uses his normal, kind personality to make himself seem innocent. He is also a disturbingly good liar.  Though, he rarely does this.
