Heya peeps! I'm Adde and this is a guide to making OCs! I really hope this guide is helpful!
NOTE: This guide contains my opinions so don't blame me if all I say is correct
O-C = Original character
OC, stands for original character, now original means first and so technically OC would mean the first and original character someone made but people(like me) just use this term for characters.
WARRIOR CATS OC
Warrior cats! The series that started the main wiki AJCW! To those who don't know what Warrior cats is, Warrior cats is a novel series written by Erin Hunter. The series is about groups of feral cats with lore, rituals, ceremonies, and their own slice of life. Eventually the series worked its way into Animal Jam creating large Warriors inspired roleplays and finally was made its own Wiki.
I love naming OCs(Well, who doesn't?)! You have two naming options, the most common naming is the two part warrior names with a Suffix and a Prefix(ex: Stormfur, Smalllily, Sweetbriar, Pinefoot). The second option are rogue names, usually being being a one part name(ex: Fern, Billy, Storm, Icy, Thomas). Rogue names are not normally used in clans and groups, the only canon warrior in Warriors with a rogue name is Boulder. How do you tell a prefix from a suffix you ask? Well a prefix and a suffix can be any word, it really depends on where you place them. Take the name Honeytail, See how I put Honey in green? And Tail in red? What I put in Green is the prefix and what's in red is the suffix! Hey! Did you know that in warrior cats, cats with different ranks have a different suffix? Heck yea of course it's true! In the table below you can see some examples! Their are so many ways to name your OC! You could name them on how they look, personality, backstory, a meaning, moral, and much more!
PHYSICAL TRAITSPhysical traits are quite important! They show what your OC looks like! Make sure your OC looks real tho, for example there's no such thing as a pink cat, or a black cat with lightning stripes, or a 3 eyed cat. Also remember cat breeds! In the table below will note some cat breeds!OTHER OCS
Always remember, OCs don't have to be always a cat, you can have dragons, lizards, dogs, humans, humanoid species, fantasy species, and much more! In the table below I have some humanoid species.
