MantaPaw's brother, CovePaw, promised on his death bed that every night he'd guide her into reefclan's domain to give her a good nights rest, because she is a chronic insomniac.
A shorthair black solid with white spotting and amber eyes. Rather average in build she is often seen leaning on or against walls as she catches her breathe and steadies her mind- to say she reeks of exhauistion would be an understatement.
A curt nod as she goes on her way, eyes looking forward yet always checking the corner for something else. MantaPaw is on a mission- a mission that no-one can place, and no-one understands. She is twitchy, hyper vigilant, working
hard and working fast. She moves as if she's on the clock, like she only has an hour to live and that each moment is sacred. Yet she is so caught up fitting as much as she can into each moment that she is loosing touch of everything.
She has a waste not want not ideal, conserving of food and herbs, gentle in her approach to nature and life- that is when she isn't steam rolling through it. Determined with no sign of slowing down, she keeps going, moving forward as if her demons are chasing her. So determined she doesn't even stop to rest, vigilant in her pursuit of knowledge, understanding and spiritual gain. This combined with fear of an unknown evil has lead her to being a chronic insomniac.
Paranoia is her best friend and being busy is her ally. Thoughtful and calculating MantaPaw always has an angle going on, some plan, some idea going through her brain. She never let's her plans get in the way of respect, despite her restless behaviour she listens to authority- in fact the orders from those of higher rank are the only thing that will get her to take a break.

MantaPaw had burned the cats face from her memory, blocked out any thought of what happened that night. She remembered running alongside her kit brother, tears streaming down her face as they crossed the border and fell
into the loving arms of BeachClan, scared out of their mind of the figure in the dark. Cove remembered it more clearly, that it was a tomcat with dark fur and yellow eyes but Manta only shook her head, trying to keep
the thoughts out. It was that monster in the dark that killed her mother. No matter how much she tried to move on, that monster didn't just rob her of her mother but also her sleep and peace of mind- continuing to haunt
her whenever she closed her eyes.
Then just like that, the monster came back and snuffed one more life out but this time it was Cove, the only person she had left. She truly believed she would have spent the rest of her life fearing that monster if it hadn't been for two things. Her brother's ghost healing her fear of the night and the clan finally killing the rogue cat, the monster in the darkness. He wouldn't haunt her any longer. [204/200]
