- 6 Notes and references
There is controversy about the definition of rogues and loners:
- The Prophecies Begin and Secrets of the Clans refer to rogues specifically as being cats exiled from a Clan.
- Most other books imply that rogues are cats who have chosen to live by themselves without other cats or Twolegs and scorn the Clan cats for their beliefs.
- Some books, such as Firestar's Quest, call every cat living on their own a "rogue," even if they are not hostile, and act more like loners.
In the Clans' point of view, rogues are usually depicted and thought of as being selfish and aggressive. They do not respect the warrior code or the cats who follow it, unlike loners. Cats who are banished from their Clan usually live as rogues. They occasionally trespass on Clan territory to steal prey, but if a patrol finds them, they will chase him or her back over the border. Even when they live in a band, they aren't afraid to turn on each other. They are very violent and are known to not have any qualms about attacking the elderly and very young cats. They sometimes kill without having a good reason. Rogues have also abandoned their kits in the past.
Sometimes a group of rogues may raid a Clan, such as when Tigerclaw led a group of exiled cats and had them attack the ThunderClan camp, or when a group of rogues attacked the Tribe of Rushing Water.
