Wolfkit (or paw, or *Warrior name*, depending on when this eventually gets published… sorry folks for the delays) asks whether Whitestorm is truly evil.
Hi there! Wolf here with a theory about Whitestorm’s behavior. Could he be evil? By evil, I mean ambitious to take Bluestar’s place, like Tigerstar evil.
Let’s look at his behavior. In Rising Storm, he’s always by Bluestar’s side. This could be considered that he’s just really nice and thoughtful and doesn’t want his sick leader get hurt. Or, he is going to do Tigerstar’s tactic to get really close, become deputy, and kill Bluestar. In The Darkest Hour, he is deputy for a while and then gets killed. He is super nice and grateful for this, but you have to act nice in order to proceed in the rankings, because no Clan wants a criminal as their leader. In The Last Hope, Whitestorm tells either Greystripe, Sandstorm, or Dovewing (ugh, can’t remember) when Tigerstar and Firestar have their big fight of a climax to not get in the way of their fight. I can view this in a way that he wants Tigerstar to kill Firestar in revenge for Firestar becoming deputy instead of him. And in Into the Wild, when Whitestorm jumps infront of Clawface, he might just be proving his loyalty to the Clans to get himself as deputy.
If you are not moved yet by my evidence here is some more that will blow your mind! Thistleclaw’s son was Whitestorm, INFLUENCE! Whitestorm’s good friend was Tigerclaw, INFLUENCE! And imagine what it would be like to have your mother be dead when you were just a kit? Imagine how much that would drive for a desire for revenge! INFLUENCE!
In most of the books when Firestar is deputy, Whitestorm usually does things when Firestar is gone. He might of organized patrols as a substitute once and found out he was really good at it and became friends with Tigerclaw starting an influence from Tigerclaw of ambition and started up a plot similar to Tigerclaw’s.
And StarClan may not have known he was ambitious and evil, or the thing with the after life system, he didn’t actually do anything too bad for the Dark Forest.
So, after writing this I believe that he was ambitious and had a plot. I hope that you enjoyed this article. You guys are awesome! Bye!
