Sandwing is a fierce she-cat with a bold personality. She has great morals when it comes to loyalty and justice. She was born to be a leader. Cats seem to just flock to her honest personality and know she is a cat they can rely on. She has a beautiful coat which she loves to flaunt, she thrives being the center of attention.
Sandwing was born to Muleclan as a littermate to Mulestar. As kits she and her brother were very close when growing up. They were always seen together along with Redkit.
As apprentices Mulepaw began to spend more time with the leader than his sister and friend. Sandpaw and Redpaw grew closer in their relationship. She was one of the best apprentices and showed great skills in one on one combat. She showed bravery and great strength in a battle with the Twoleg's Farm Dogs and became a warrior.
As a warrior she was originally given the name Sandflower which she hated. She felt like -flower represented her as a delicate cat when she was the complete opposite. Not too long after she became mates with Redcinders. For the first pawful of moons she lived happy within the clan. Something was off though. Her brother began to draw farther and farther away till they had no relationship at all.
When Redcinders told her about what he witnessed she decided to help him with preventing her brother from destroying the clan. When their plan failed she took things into her own paws. The day Mulestar made his way back from receiving his 9 lives Sandflower attacked and killed her own brother. She was hoping that his injuries would be bad enough to take all 9 lives but he only lost one life. After that Mulestar banished her from Muleclan and threatened to kill her if she ever showed up again.
Sandflower fled the territory. At first Sandflower stayed close to the border but not close enough that they would detect her. She became close friends with the barn cats at the Two-Legged Cattle Farm. They told her about a strange cat that lived in the mountains who once a moon would travel to the farm for herbs. They told her that this cat seemed to be very similar to her and might be able to help her in her new journey of life. After a moon she left, heading towards the mountains.
Sandflower wasn't in the mountains for too long till the cat the barn cats talked about revealed herself. To Sandflower's surprise it was Lionleaf, the clan's old medicine cat who they all thought had died. Lionleaf did not explain to Sandflower why she left but did tell her how to survive. Lionleaf began to show her some of the most important skills of a medicine cat. The two she-cats lived happily together for a long time till one night Starclan came to Sandflower in a dream. She was to continue her journey. With a heavy heart Sandflower left her companion.
As Sandflower traveled over the mountain she ran into a lot of trouble. But the worst was the monsters. She had never dealt with these sort of smaller monsters and had never seen a black paved thunderpath before. In an attempt to cross the thunderpath she was attack by one of the monsters and left to die along in a ditch. She was in and out of consciousness and thought that Starclan had come to take her away. Instead it was her saviors. Tribe cats.
The cats that saved her were from Tribe of Roaring Peaks. The cats that saved her were Lilac In Dawn Light "Lilac" and Sap On Tree Bark "Sap". They saved her from near death and said she was "reborn". They gave her a new name, Sand on the Bluebird's Wing "Sand". She spent a long time with these cats and finally felt like she was home. During her time here she found a new mate named Wayward Wind's Night Storm "Wayward" and even had kits with him whom she named named Glow of Setting Sun "Glow", Flame Burning In the Sky "Flame", and Mud On Grass Blade "Mud.
One night Starclan came to Sand again. They told her about what was happening to Muleclan and that she had to go back. Once she returned she challenges her brother to the death. She ends up defeating Mulestar and rejoining Muleclan. Timberfang who becomes leader renames her Sandwing because of her tribe name and also because she spread her wings and flew away but return.
