Below contains in-depth information for the Bluestar Speaks chapter of The Ultimate Guide. If you are looking for a shorter summary of the entire book, please check the main article.
- Bluestar notes that ThunderClan's traditions and cultures have blossomed the way they are now because of the surroundings in which they live. ThunderClan warriors can stay quiet enough to hunt their prey without being detected, even in the densest undergrowth. She explains that they are descended from the cats that lived in the forest long ago, that had the skills to hunt adeptly beneath the trees. They have the same adaptability to their territory and to fight their enemies closely, allowing them to feed and defend their Clan. ThunderClan holds the warrior code close, always depending on it and making sure to do as it said. This helps them maintain their forest home. ThunderClan prefers to avoid fighting if peace could solve the problem, though they will fight if necessary.
- One of the longest and biggest quarrels ThunderClan had was with RiverClan because of Sunningrocks. At first, only cats who didn't mind swimming could get to them, but later they became attached to ThunderClan's territory. Both Clans fought over these rocks, each believing they belonged to them. ThunderClan had more success in these endless battles than RiverClan ever did. Because of the Twolegplace, ThunderClan had to deal with kittypets, loners, and rogues trespassing on their territory. Bluestar believes that cats who do not believe in StarClan are often better than their enemies in other Clans. She thinks they could learn to follow the warrior code if they tried, though they can't always change their personalities.
