  • Tallstar explains how the other Clans are quick to call WindClan cowards, but WindClan are the most closely descended from the mountain cats.
  • Like the mountain cats, they need the sky above their heads and the breeze, not going under trees and getting wet to find prey.
  • WindClan may be lithe and small, but they run faster than other Clans, and are the only ones that can catch rabbits on the moor.
  • They see enemies from far away, and if that makes them more watchful and alarmed to danger, that’s only because it keeps them safe.

  • Onewhisker was loyal and courageous but had none of the fierce ambition most leaders have.
  • He made friends with Fireheart after he rescued WindClan, and that friendship helped both their Clans.
  • Onewhisker helped persuade Tallstar to not fight ThunderClan after Bluestar falsely accuses WindClan.
  • When Onestar became leader, he had to prove WindClan can survive on their own, the friendship he shared with Firestar becoming a burden.

  • Hawkfrost told Mudclaw that Onestar not grabbing land will lead to his Clan hungry and weak during leaf-bare.
  • Mudclaw met his allies from the other Clans in secret, and one night led them on a probably foolish but brave attack on Onestar.
  • Firestar’s aid for Onestar led to a defeat, and Mudclaw fled back to the island.
  • He was killed by a tree that was hit by lightning, a sign that Onestar is the true leader and Mudclaw was wrong.

  • When he learned of Leafpool’s kits, he refused to acknowledge that, living in torment as he cannot connect with Breezepelt and resents Nightcloud.
  • In the Great Battle, Crowfeather fiercely protected Lionblaze from Breezepelt, and told Leafpool he never regretted a thing, close to accepting their kits.

  • Nightcloud was concerned she would never have kits when Crowfeather asks to be his mate.
  • She tried to make him fall in love, but realized that he only asked to prove his loyalty, choosing the short-tempered defensive she-cat.
  • Nightcloud didn’t respect nor like Crowfeather, but loved their son Breezepelt with a strength that came from Crowfeather not liking him equally.
  • Breezepelt was desperate for acknowledgement from his father, and heard the whispers of Crowfeather’s past. He was determined to not be disloyal.
  • He could have been a great warrior, but Crowfeather’s negligence and Nightcloud’s insistence he answers to no one gave Breezepelt arrogance and fury.
  • Breezepaw saw Brambleclaw’s warm treatment of his kits and his fury burned brighter, as well as his horror when he learned they are Crowfeather’s kits.
  • The Dark Forest gave him a chance to be a better warrior, and knowing their true nature, relished the thought of punishing the ones that made him suffer.

  • ThunderClan and WindClan relations shattered as Onestar is determined to prove he doesn’t need ThunderClan and many border clashes start.
  • Lionpaw decides he cannot meet Heatherpaw anymore, but when WindClan kits go missing, both apprentices knew where they are hiding.
  • The apprentices found them in the tunnels, and due to torrential rain they were washed out to the lake, barely surviving the experience.
  • Heatherpaw knew it was over, with the Clan wars and limits of loyalties. She had to face Lionblaze in battle, and her duty to WindClan dominated.
  • Heathertail never forgot Lionblaze entirely, and hasn’t ever found his equal to her among WindClan.

  • Crookedstar explains other Clans are suspicious of his Clan because of their swimming skills and interest of getting wet.
  • They are descended off cats mostly not from the mountains, but from cats that saw the use of the river.
  • Those cats saw the easy access of food in every season and protection from the other Clans.
  • Their main diet of fish gave them thick glossy fur and RiverClan decorate their dens with shells and other valuables.
  • RiverClan warriors fight bravely, but are called cowards as they rarely go into battle.
  • There’s not need as an enemy that is not willing to cross the river isn’t an enemy worth picking a fight with.
  • Sunningrocks however was an exception, since the river changed its course and ThunderClan can reach them. There countless battles over the rocks.

  • A false prophecy by Mapleshade convinced Hailstar to make Crookedjaw deputy, and her realized that he Mapleshade is a Dark Forest cat.
  • He turned his back, but Mapleshade reminded him of the promise, and Crookedjaw's world fell apart, even after he became leader.
  • Crookedstar got everything and wanted and lost everything that mattered. He hid so much of the suffering and was a strong, fair-minded leader.

  • Mapleshade was loyal and keen as an apprentice, and skilful and bold as a warrior.
  • Her courage and pursuit to the warrior code stirred whispers that she will become leader, and Mapleshade basked in her ambition.

  • Her impulsive nature was however softened by her mother’s gentleness, and she was loved by her Clanmates.
  • She is a true RiverClan cat with freshwater in her blood, and never intended to fall in love with Graystripe.
  • There weren’t any romantic notions as she saved Graystripe from the river, only that her Clan doesn’t like dead cats polluting the river.
  • Graystripe begged to see her, and Silverstream did out of curiosity, and her fondness grew despite her instincts screaming to stay loyal to RiverClan.
  • When they met secretly she felt like she was walking on thorns and fish stuck in her throat as she returned to her Clanmates.
  • She could not deny her heart’s pull, and her joy outweighed fear when she discovered she is expecting kits.
  • She bled to death giving birth. It’s unknown if she would have been happy away from the river but her courage could have given her a chance.

  • Leopardfur was keen and ambitious and Crookedstar saw her as a loyal straight-forward cat that isn’t haunted by shadows.
  • Leopardfur's black-and-white approach to the warrior code made her see half-Clan cats as a grave weakness.

  • They parted ways, and Crookedstar asked for Oakheart to be his deputy but he refused, torn between his loyalty to his Clan and Bluefur.
  • After hearing Bluefur's expecting, he started planning a future but Bluefur is raising them alone, so Oakheart swore to be their father if they need him.
  • Bluefur gave their kits up to Oakheart and he gave them to Graypool, and watched them grow strong.
  • Oakheart was killed before Tigerstar’s reign and destruction over half-Clan cats, dying by a rock slide during a battle over Sunningrocks.
  • Oakheart had a true warrior’s end, a cat with more courage and dignity that his Clan has ever realized.

  • Bluefur took her three kits through the snow and gave them to Oakheart. Only Stonekit and Mistykit survived.

  • When Tigerstar took over RiverClan and targeted half-Clan cats, Featherpaw and Stormpaw were targeted, kept prisoner in a fox den.
  • They watched Stonefur die before being rescued and taken to ThunderClan. After the battle against BloodClan, they returned back to their Clan.
  • Feathertail was selected to make the journey to Midnight and Stormfur went too, loyal enough to not let her travel alone.
  • She wasn’t alone though, falling in love with WindClan’s representative, Crowpaw as she saw the loyal warrior beneath the prickly temper.
  • Feathertail was part of another prophecy that she will save the Tribe. She did, giving her life to save the Tribe and Crowpaw's life.
  • Feathertail was buried behind the waterfall and walked with the Tribe of Endless Hunting watching the Tribe of Rushing Water.

  • She still carried the same foresight and gentleness shown in her short but courageous life.

  • Hawkfrost, Mothwing and Tadpole are born to Sasha as loners but after losing Tadpole to a flood, she brought her kits to RiverClan.
  • She hoped that Clan life would give her kits a better chance of survival and when she came back for them, they were already loyal.
  • Before Hawkfrost knew his father he wanted to be leader, training hard to catch fish over and over even though he hasn’t got the instincts for it.
  • His reward was temporarily being made deputy, but knows that being Leopardstar's favourite doesn’t guarantee respect from the rest of the Clan.
  • To gain this, he faked an omen to make his sister the medicine cat apprentice. Tigerstar saw potential in the coldhearted ambition cat from the Dark Forest.

  • She was fascinated with healing herbs and only objected Hawkfrost's method of making her a medicine cat apprentice and feared it being discovered.
  • Mothwing is a quick learner, sensitive to sick and injured cats and well trusted but suffered a fatal flaw: She doesn’t believe in StarClan.
  • Instinct and experience replaced guidance from StarClan, and Mothwing was forced to do as Hawkfrost tells her due to him threatening to reveal her secret.
  • Her lack of belief started to destroy her Clan as she could not receive important warnings. Terrified, Mothwing confided in Leafpool, who helped.
  • Mistystar's leadership ceremony forced Mothwing to confess her secret, prompting Mistystar to think her leadership is threatened.
  • An omen however convinced Mistystar otherwise as StarClan found a better solution in Willowshine.
  • Willowshine showed an interest as a kit with a keenness of herbs and effort to help made her a great choice for Mothwing's apprentice.
  • Willowshine eventually knew of Mothwing's secret, but learned of StarClan from Leafpool, not caring of the secret.

  • Cloudstar also had to leave his mate Birdflight and their kits Spottedkit and Gorsekit behind, leaving him grief-stricken.
  • Cloudstar found a new home for his Clan, but his faith in StarClan was shattered enough that he didn’t heed the warrior code.
  • Cloudstar watched his Clan dwindle to dust as rats scattered them many moons after his death.
  • Skywatcher was the last descendant living in the gorge when Firestar came. He knew of SkyClan from his mother's teachings and stories of the Clan.
  • Skywatcher was alone with thoughts muddled with age, most nights sitting on a jutting rock and staring at the stars, giving him the nickname of Moony.
  • Firestar saw the value with the rambling and when he rebuilt SkyClan, Skywatcher was welcomed as an elder before peacefully joining StarClan.
  • He never forgot the debt he owes to Firestar, chosen to deliver the prophecy to the ThunderClan leader.

  • Leaf was a loner, living happily on her own and hunting for herself when Firestar invited her to join SkyClan.
  • She was curious enough to come to the meeting to hear more. The tales of StarClan and cats helping each other survive convinced Leaf to join.

  • She helped her Clan set borders and fighting as fierce as a lion against the rats that tortured SkyClan.

  • With great support, Leafstar led her Clan through the early seasons, fending off attacks and negotiating new types of warriors: daylight warriors.
  • Leafstar knew they would not be fully respected, but knew things were different and needed the number of cats in SkyClan to increase.
  • Some daylight-warriors proved unable to stay with the Clan and others did not, but Leafstar was right to let them be a Clan cat and SkyClan flourished.
  • Leafstar had her own kits with Billystorm, Firekit, Stormkit and Harrykit were rescued them from a Twoleg. Billystorm realized how much his family meant to him so became a full warrior.
  • The only fatal mistake Leafstar made was sending away Sol. It’s not dangerous for her Clan but is for the four other Clans.

  • Echosong had pure kittypet blood, no SkyClan blood in her delicate paws and fluffy fur.
  • She however dreamed of cats with stars in their fur and Firestar and Sandstorm came to the Twolegplace to find Echosong expecting them.
  • Made restless by her dreams, she was ready to leave her housefolk to live in the gorge.
  • Her sensitivity to StarClan and quick knowledge of herbs thanks to Sandstorm made her the greatest choice as SkyClan’s medicine cat.
  • The loners in the Clan were suspicious of Echosong at first but she was patient and loyal enough to prove herself.
  • She saved lives after the battle against the rats and shared the grief when Rainfur died.
  • She received the sign that showed Leafstar to be leader, and traveled to watch Leafstar’s leader ceremony.
  • Firestar knew that SkyClan was in safe paws with these two cats.

  • Sharpclaw was a loner named Scratch when Firestar came to the gorge, already have the ability to jump and courage of a warrior.
  • Sharpclaw was very willing to join the rebuilt Clan, learning to defend the borders and stock the fresh-kill pile.
  • He was however too arrogant and dismissive of former kittypets, certain they will never survive in the wild.
  • His impulsive need to protect his Clanmates causes trouble with jumping into skirmishes but his strength and bravery played a role against the rats.
  • Leafstar didn’t hesitate to make him deputy, but Sharpclaw knew in his heart he deserved to be leader, but his loyalty made him equally committed.
  • His kittypet impatience spilled when the daylight-warriors were too slow to keep up their Clan duties and quick to return to their Twoleg dens.
  • Leafstar made him give a chance to prove themselves while Sharpclaw grew close to Cherrytail, giving a sense of purpose he had not known before.
  • We will see what kind of leader he’ll become, probably a bit steadier after Leafstar’s leadership for Sharpclaw's aggression to battle.
  • For now, he is the ideal deputy guiding the Clan to a more secure and better future.

  • Stoneteller explains that the Tribe was shaped by the mountains as they are lithe, fast and with fur the color of stones to blend in.

  • The Tribe cats came from beside the lake, and Stoneteller wonders if the Clans know they have done a full circle.
  • The Tribe struggled at first in the harsh climate but then split into two roles, cave-guard and prey-hunter depending on a cat’s talent.
  • They also made the role to-be’s, for young cats training to become cave-guards or prey-hunters.

  • When the six Clan cats came, she was the first to question if Stormfur was the cat of the prophecy that a silver cat will save them.

  • Clan cats came to help them but Crag was reluctant to let them help.
    • He was afraid the Tribe will lose everything they value if they follow Clan ways, but helped establish territory and joined patrols.
  • After the death of Stoneteller, Jayfeather needed to choose an experienced cat to succeed him, a cat with courage, faith and selflessness. Crag was that cat.
    • Crag was astonished and honored to be chosen and promised to serve his Tribe for the rest of his life.

  • Before the time of the Clans, the territory had no borders and was ruled by rogues and loners.
    • But cats from the Ancient Tribe arrived to find a better place to live, a warmer and prey-filled climate rather than the cold mountains.
  • Half Moon introduces herself as Stoneteller back then, battling difficult conditions and leading a too large group for the mountains.
  • Since cats migrated from beside the lake, too many cats came and the mountains couldn’t support them.
  • Half Moon had a vision of a new warm place for cats to go. She was too old, but blessed those with enough courage to find a new home.
  • They found trees for forest hunters, a river for swimmers and a moor for runners.
  • Half Moon admits it did take a long time for the warrior code to be created, as well as five Clans.
  • The Clans personalities came from the Early Settlers, and they fought and shared defeats and victories.
  • Every day and action crept closer to the modern Clans and further from the memories of the Tribe.

  • Half Moon lived beside the lake with the Ancients but when they had to decide whether to stay or leave, Half Moon votes to leave.
  • She loved Jayfeather, whom she knew as Jay’s Wing, and was shattered when he mysteriously disappeared while the group moved to the mountains.
