Close the Book


This book feels kind of fuzzy, like a cat once slept on it and all that fur never quite came off. Holding it makes all your aches and pains go away but it smells faintly of dirt and blood.

Crimson Drought is a murder mystery about cats, murder and vampires.

Fowl is the colony's healer. They dislike conflict and routinely play mediator to the other cats, even though they would prefer to stay out of the way. They are quiet and the other cats sometimes find them unsettling.

They have never been seen without their mask on. The other cats don't know when they eat.

A digital drawing of a small shorthair domestic cat with fangs. He has long fur only in certain places including the tip of his tail, his chest, and his cheeks. He is wearing a collar. His body is turned away from the viewer and only half of his face can be seen.


Sylvester is a pet cat and an outsider to the colony. He is often found on the outskirts of the woods the colony lives in, observing but never getting any closer (to their knowledge, anyway). Fowl speaks to him often and appears to be the only company he keeps other than his housefolk. He is often underestimated because of his small stature and meek personality.

Harbor is a starving fox hunting anything and everything she can find, including the cats of these woods. She is always angry.

Diana is the colony's leader. Confident and social, she is a little hard on everyone but just wants the best out of them. She is much harsher towards her brother Blair than everyone else. She admires Fowl greatly and goes to them for any advice she may need.

Blair is a guard for the cats, he carries out his sister's orders and protects everyone when needed. He is judgemental and quick to prove himself, but acts much meeker around his sister.

Cloud is a hunter for the colony by day, and a pet by night. He is brash and confident, but doesn't always have the skills to back it up. His mate is Pandora.

Pandora is a hunter for the colony. She is standoffish and quiet with most, but tells her mate Cloud everything. She zones out a lot.

A digital drawing of a longhair domestic cat loafing. He has fur on his face that resembles a pair of bushy eyebrows and a mustache. He has a scar on his back.


Arty used to be a pet but joined the colony after his housefolk died. He leaves the main camp only to go on walks. The younger cats go to him for advice all the time, but whether this advice is actually good is yet to be proven.

Jigsaw is a fighter for the colony, but rarely ever feels the need to do her job. She is a little shy but is one of the kindest cats in the colony. She thinks Fowl is lonely and so spends time with them when everyone else is busy.

Cody is a fighter for the colony, but is currently on break after injuring one of their back legs. They are excitable and tries to see the silver lining in everything.
