Starwatcher considers the character arcs of three warriors
First we have Firestar.
He started out as Rusty, a house cat. Rusty started out as just thinking about the forest. Than, finally he met forestp cats. Lionheart,Bluestar, and Graypaw. Now, Firestar had always been different than most kittypets (house cats). He fought back when Graypaw attacked him. Soon (as everyone knows) he eventually joined Thunderclan. Now, when you think about Rusty the kittypet compared to Firestar the leader….well, a lot is different. Firestar is more certain when it comes to big desicions. He knows what’s right for Thunderclan. Meanwhile, Rusty relies on his Twolegs (humans, owners, whatever you like to call them) to make the desicions for him. When Rusty joined Thunderclan he became Firepaw. So, if you think about it, (spoiler alert) when Firestar died for his clan, he was dying to help cats to live on. If Rusty died, he would die to save his Twolegs. Or Smudge (was that his name?) Also, overtime in every book the characters become braver,meaner,more intelligent, and better in every way.
This is one of the most changed cats. He started out as a warrior planning to become deputy, to a leader who hated non-clan cats, to a Dark Forest member who would do anything to kill everyone. Tigerstar’s plans have always failed. First of all, he was willing to kill to become deputy. Than he was kicked out. Than BAM he became a leader of Shadowclan. Tigerstar grew a hate for non-clan cats. Let me tell you a secret. The clan he was leading has had more rogues and kittypet join their clan than any other. In your face Tigerstar. LOL. He easily met his death after. He came back. Even more changed than before Along with the other betrayers he plotted to kill the living. Finally, he died forever (thankfully). Hold on people, we are almost done.
He has changed by far. Dustpelt has gone from hating Firestar to dealing with him. Also he has faced more than many can imagine. His wife (mate) died, and (I think) someone else he cared about died. In the beginning Dustpelt was rude to Firestar and overtime once Fierstar became leader, he grew to respect him. He faced many dangers and grief. Finally, he met his death when he faced the Badgers. Joining his mate in Starclan.
