  • In Secrets of the Clans, a 2007 field guide, Crookedstar is listed as one of RiverClan's significant leaders. He is noted to be determined, strong, and willing to bend the rules for the safety of his Clan. He also mentored Stonefur.[13] When Crookedstar leads his Clan cross the river to safety because of a flood, he thinks that he and his Clan are no more powerful against the river than any other Clan. When he listens to Graystripe and Fireheart explaining how they had found the kits, he knows that this must be a sign from StarClan, saying that he should not refuse help from other Clans.[14]
