Gray Wing.DTC-1.png "Tom? Twolegs called a Tom, Tom?"

Although this article is based on canonical information, the title of this subject is conjecture.

"Territory belongs to those strong enough to defend it—or to take it. If SkyClan couldn't dig their claws into the land they claimed as theirs, they have nothing to complain about. And if you want to stake your claim, Mistfeather, do you want to fight me for the territory right here, right now?"
Darktail to Mistfeather in The Apprentice's Quest, page 222

The Kin's campaign was a long run of invasions and attacks led by a cat named Darktail. It was instigated when Darktail and his group attacked and drove out SkyClan from the gorge, and then followed returning journeying cats to the lake territories, where he inflicted heavy casualties to the other four Clans. However, despite Darktail's death at the claws of Onestar, the damage inflicted by the Kin caused many more unfortunate events to occur, spanning a total year before the Clans were even able to fully recover.

The rogues arrive

Darktail first arrives near SkyClan territory to Hawkwing, asking for treatment from the SkyClan medicine cat Echosong since he breathed in smoke from a fire. Hawkwing brings him back to camp and he starts joining patrols and helping around camp, and he is eventually accepted into SkyClan. He initially appears to be alone, but it is later revealed he has several rogue allies that he keeps in contact with. He schemes with these rogues in the meantime while he is staying with SkyClan, and they use SkyClan's weaknesses to their advantage.

Battle for SkyClan

Main article: Battle of the gorge
Darktail secretly schemes with his rogues to take over SkyClan territory, and they drive the Clan out of their home in the middle of the night. Many SkyClan cats are killed, and all that survive the battle were forced out of the gorge, rendering SkyClan homeless and near hopeless.
Darktail's cats stay at the gorge, claiming it as their new camp until Alderpaw, Sparkpaw, Molewhisker and Cherryfall eventually come looking for SkyClan. Darktail initially tricks them by telling them that he is the leader of SkyClan, and they believe him. However, they quickly realize that these cats do not follow the ways of the warrior code at all, and deduce that they had been tricked. They are held captive for a short time until they are able to escape and flee back to their Clans to report what had happened.

To the lake

Following their escape from the Kin's camp, the Clan cats immediately head back to the lake, unknowingly leaving a trail for the Kin to follow. The Kin soon after arrive at the lake and settle within ShadowClan territory. Rowanstar, the ShadowClan leader, wishes to drive them away, but several of his younger Clanmates think he is a weak and spineless leader and refuse to listen to him. They begin to follow Darktail, as he presents himself as confident and strong in his leadership. Darktail slowly but surely recruits more ShadowClan cats until a rift forms within the Clan and it falls apart.
