Mistakes

Continuity

The following information is from sources considered non-canon or retconned.

  • In Secrets of the Clans, a 2007 field guide, Rock talks about the moons before the Clan cats came to the lake, and how he and his kin used to live there. He says he can feel StarClan's pelts brush his as they learn to walk the new sky. He briefly mentions the history of the Tribe he came from, saying that there were only three Tribes, unlike the Clans. He used to travel with the other healers to what is now the Moonpool, which is the place of not only StarClan, but of also his Tribe's ancestors. He explains their rituals for the night they go to the Moonpool, which are very similar to the Clans' way. He finishes up by saying that he hopes that the Moonpool will bring the Clan cats serenity, wisdom, and guidance for many moons to come.[11]
