The Tribe of Rushing Water is a mountain group living in a cave.But how much about the Tribe do you know?After analysing (cough cough stalking Tribe pages on Warriors wiki cough cough) the Tribe’s history,I’ve found some interesting ideas.
The Tribe didn’t always live in the mountains.According to Stoneteller in The Sun Trail,there was a lake that was the former home of the Tribe.In the New Prophecy,Leafpool discovers the Moonpool,which is surrounded by rocks.These rocks are worn with the pawsteps of many cats…
An Ancient Stoneteller from long ago,maybe?
The Tribe eventually split into two groups,those who lived in hhe mountains and those who followed the Sun Trail.
The Sun Trail cats are the base of the entire Dawn of the Clans arc,but they are not the original forest cats.Those were the rogues.Eventually the rogues and former Tribe cats became the Clans,and knowledge of the Tribe was forgotten entirely.
Then the Clan cats went on the Journey to Sun-drown-place,and on the way home they met the Tribe.Everyone knows the poor story of Feathertail,who died to save the Tribe from destruction.
On the Great Journey the Clans and the Tribe meet again,and Stormfur decides to stay with Brook Where Small Fish Swim.Many moons after the Clans reach their new home,Brook and Stormfur arrive,looking to rejoin RiverClan.
At first they are welcomed,but Hawkfrost convinces the Clan to force them out.So,the two cats go to ThunderClan for shelter,and there they settle.
So,in all,the cats were meant to live at the lake after all.First the ancients,then they migrated to the mountains,and the forest,and back to the lake.Who says cats don’t like water?
The Tribe counts seasons differently than the Clans,but there is no confirmed seasons other than spring,known as “Freed-water,”reffering to the waterfall freed from ice,and winter,known as “Frozen-water,”reffering to the frozen waterfall.And the ancients lived far from the water-fall.Did they use the same seasons as the Clans?
So,that’s the story of the Tribe,complete and simple.Nothing irrelevant was added,so yes there are details that I missed,but this is,in general,the complete Tribe history and encyclopedia.
