Rufflecloud is a large and long-haired cat of the substantial body type, meaning that she has a large size and broad, muscular body that is not rounded like the cobby body type of some cats.
She is also a mix of three breeds (Turkish Van, Maine Coon & Ragdoll) resulting in a off-white or creamy-white-coloured cat with brown tabby patches in the van pattern (tabby patches & markings on head and tail) with Mackerel or Classic tabby stripes. Her eyes are blue, another result of bearing Ragdoll breed ancestry.
Her paws have tufts of fur between the paw pads (an appearance trait of the Maine Coon, one of her breeds), her front right paw in particular bearing a few extra toes from a Polydactyl mutation, making one of her paws mitten-like in appearance.
Rufflecloud also has very long, shaggy fur with a soft, fluffy texture and fur tufts at the end of her ears.
Rufflecloud is a clever, mature, laid-back, quirky and
reserved she-cat who takes her work seriously, obeys rules without question and
does what she is asked without complaining.
Ruffle tries her best to be kind, but she thinks that she isn’t doing good enough. (That's not true! Ruffles is one of the most kindest people I know! <3) (Thanks, whoever said that! <3 - Rufflecloud) She is quite humble and honest to other people though. Her sense of humour is dry, which means that she says something amusing without any emotion.
She likes to think herself as an introvert, but she might be an ambivert. She is mostly quiet and only says something when someone else wants to talk to her or she has something to say. Ruffles is also optimistic and content.
It is unknown
how Brightsky found BlogClan, but she most-likely found it through the Warriors
Wiki. She looked around the blog for a while, and decided that she would
comment on the New Members’ Page. Her first and only comment as Brightsky was
on the old blog’s first New Members’ Page, posted on the 8th of
December 2013. Brightsky then explored the old pages of the blog, and found
that a member that used to be on the blog was also called Brightsky. Not
knowing what to do, she left the Blog without giving a thought about changing
later, in March 2016, after becoming interested in Warriors again for the
second time, Brightsky was reminded of Blogclan’s existence when she found out
about two characters being named after Blogclanners in Mothflight’s Vision and
the allegiances for The Apprentice’s Quest.
out the changes to the blog and seeing that a new group of members have
replaced some of the older ones, she decided to join once again. A new Purrsona
was created, combining the appearance of a cat version of herself and a name
she got from a name generator elsewhere, thinking that Brightsky wasn’t fitting
for her anymore. After checking with the search box to see whether there were
any other members with the same name as two characters chosen to be possible
Purrsona choices, she commented for the second time on Blogclan, and the first
time under the name of her new Purrsona: Mapleheart. At first she was hesitant
about commenting, thinking about having to follow rules every time and not using
any social media, but Mapleheart commented anyway, mentioning in the post that
she was afraid of breaking any rules. The replies she got from other members
stated that the rules are simple and straight forward, and that as long as she
uses common sense she is okay. These comments calmed her anxiety.
Mapleheart commented on the Blogchat and interacted with these new members that joined
after she first commented as Brightsky, and since there were other members with
the same Prefix (Maple-), a nickname had to be decided for her. Mapleheart suggested
Mapl’, with the last vowel omitted from her prefix, but someone else suggested
a different one, replacing the l with the first letter of her suffix.
With a new
nickname, Maph commented frequently, asking for Art to be made of her Purrsona
by other members.
Gravatar account that she made when she was still called Brightsky, Mapleheart
commented with a picture of a cat similar to her new Purrsona with a rubber duck
on top of his head.
period of commenting, she started to stalk the blog more and comment on random
occasions; she once stalked the blog for so long that when she commented for
the first time in a while the members were surprised and happy to see her.
She took part
in gatherings on the blog, choosing one of whatever teams they had at the time,
including the Relatively-Excitable Stoats.
In 2017 she
only commented when something interesting happened in her life (which is rare)
and when there is a discussion about something that she is interested in.
time she decided that she was going to change her Purrsona, even though she had
a connection to her current one. She stayed with Mapleheart afterwards.
she decided that she was definitely going to change her Purrsona this time,
making up some characters named after her characteristics and with her
favourite cat breeds.
A poll was
posted to decide her new Purrsona, with only three out of the seven choices
being actual characters/names. Out of these characters Cloudstep was the most
liked, with the second most-popular choice being “Don’t change your Purrsona”.
Coming up with
two new characters, she posted a choice of the characters, including the newest
the most chosen character once again.
what her new Purrsona would be, she posted a third poll; this time with two more
new characters, one eliminated and another one with a new name.
On the 1st
of January 2018 her new Purrsona was revealed, based on the tri-coloured Maneki
Neko and representing her love of lucky cats: Beckoning Paw.
With yet again
a new Purrsona, Beckoning Paw (Nin for short) had a plan to comment and
participate more on Blogclan; the results of whether she is sticking to the plan
or not can be seen on the pages of the Blog.
After a few days, Nin starts to feel unattached to her Purrsona,
and decides to create a new one.
Due to problems with receiving forms, the Allegiances still
displayed herself as Beckoning Paw for about five months. Nin still stuck with
being Beckoning Paw through all this time, until it changed.
She first joined the Wiki in June 2016,
creating a page for her Purrsona at the time.
She commented on a few pages but
stopped altogether, although she was on the Wikichat until the Blogclan Discord
server became popular.
She still commented on the chat whenever it wasn’t inactive and took part in Wiki gatherings.
In late 2017, when she decided to change her Purrsona, she frequently discussed her choice of characters to be a possible future Purrsona on the Wikichat, and when she was unsure of which one to pick someone else helped her choose her future Purrrsona.
Rufflecloud appears in the Blogclan story project as Sundrift, one of her older Purrsonas in Chapter Twenty-Four, written by Cheetahspark. In the chapter, Sundrift tells her troubled clanmates to calm down and listen to Cakestar as the Blogclan Leader calls for a Clan Meeting.
She makes an appearance in the story again as Hootsnout in Chapter Twenty-Five where she and Starblossom joined Lionfire (the Writer of the chapter) and the other cats in the group who were speculating what Cakestar was going to say in the Clan Meeting. Hoot grins as she joins the group and asks what they are talking about when the conversation gets negative and awkward.
Ruffle is briefly mentioned for a third time in Chapter Twenty-Six (Written by Kat) under the name Plumeflake when she is seen returning to the Blogclan camp with Viperfrost and Rainshine after picking flowers to decorate the Camp with.
Say what you think of and like about Rufflecloud (me), if you want!
(NOTE: Just to avoid confusion, past compliments may mention Rufflecloud by her old Blogclan name, Plumeflake AKA 'Plume'.)
Plume is so nice and gives encouragement when we need it. She also lets us rant in front of her XDD -Dusty
You are very kind and always greet people (including me) so nicely, especially on BlogChat, and you are also REALLY smart!-Minnowkit(dust)
Plume is a great BlogClanner and friend, is amazing at making the Pronouns and Shipping Preference lists, and I would love to see her become a senior warrior. -Moons
Plume is really nice. She is my friend. We both like They Might Be Giants. I’m happy that Plume has gotten all her vouches, and will become a senior warrior! ~Turtlepaw/ dapple who is too lazy to link their name. 😛
Plume is so approachable, nice, funny, and kind. She was so kind that she married me and eBay two times. Thank you, Plume for that. But knowing Plume, that is definitely not the only outstandingly weird nice thing she's done for other people. -Amazon
Plume is awesome and a great cat and an amazing, wonderful BlogClanner! She's super understanding and smart!!- Smokeyy <3 <3
Ruffles, you’re amazing. You’re great to talk to and joke around with. I know it’s strange, but you’re almost like an older sister to me. And, if you are leaving BlogClan, well, I will never forget you, because you’re fantastic. ~Captain

Rufflecloud first commented in 2013 under the name Brightsky.
She joined Blogclan again as Mapleheart in 2016 after nearly a three-year break.
When she was still called Mapleheart, Ruffles was jokingly shipped with the American supermarket chain Wal-Mart in the joke ship called Maple-Mart. She doesn't remember who started the ship, but is pretty sure that it was either Willowlight (Wollow) or Winterwhisper (Wint).
Ruffle was the Blogclanner who suggested that Blogclan "fursonas" could instead be called Purrsonas.
She runs the Shipping Preferences/Sexuality List (where Blogclanners' sexual orientations and preferences on themselves being shipped are listed by alphabetical order) on the Shipping Discussion Page.
Rufflecloud also came up with the idea of the Pronouns List (the Genders and Pronouns of Blogclanners are listed, also in Alphabetical order) on the Allegiances Discussion Page, but has since given the role of running the list to Monkeypaw.
The scar that Rufflecloud's purrsona bears on her left cheek in the above infobox drawing is based on a real-life scar that she got when she was 6 when she tripped over one of her old dogs and hit her head on a table. It now appears as a dimple on her cheek whenever she smiles or squints her eyes.
She has one dog, an Alaskan Malamute called Malakai.
Truffle has owned two chinchillas in the past.
She knows how to swim, but hasn’t done so since 2013.
She owns a collection of lucky cats, including 15 ornaments and coin banks.
She once had a crush on the number 7 as a child, strangely enough.
Her favourite number is 3. Other numbers that Ruffle likes are 4, 7, 64 and 180.
Her least favourite number is 9.
If she could choose which Clan to live in, she would choose Riverclan or Skyclan because she likes the cultures and agrees with the values of both clans.
If Rufflecloud had to choose which role she would be if she was a Warrior Cat, she would either choose being a Senior Warrior or Elder because she does not want a special role like Deputy or Medicine Cat, but still wants a rank of experience as she is quite old in age but still wants to help out in whatever clan she is in, and , and also because she would like telling stories to Kits if she was an Elder.
Her Horoscope is a Taurus and her Chinese Zodiac is the Metal Snake (like Pablo Picasso).
Her Myers-Briggs personality type is INTP-T and her D&D Alignment is Lawful Good.
Her S.T.A.R. personality type is either Structure or Task-orientated and her Keirsey personality type is either Guardian or Idealist.
There is a star in Andromeda that is actually named after her, no joke.
She has roots in Scotland and possibly also the Scandinavian countries, most likely Norway.
