Cindertail will discuss if Thistleclaw should be in the Dark Forest or not..
*SPOILERS FOR, BLUESTAR’S PROPHECY, CROOKEDSTAR’S PROMISE, etc*
Hi everyone! This is Cindertail here with a article about Thistleclaw!
In Bluestar’s Prophecy, he was first seen as a young kit and Bluekit states that, she does not like him because of, Thistlekit’s personality.
He then falls in love with Snowpaw and of course, Bluepaw is angry. Goosefeather’s prophecy, Sharp like Thorns, means that Thistleclaw will influence Whitekit into a aggressive, battle-hungry warrior. Alot of people argue that, Thistleclaw had not influenced Tigerpaw into a blood-thirsty leader.
I disagree. BUT I think Thistleclaw influenced Tigerpaw’s personality. If you read ‘Bluestar’s Prophecy’ and ‘Into the Wild’
You will notice they have SIMILAR personalities. One of the Erins revealed that Thistleclaw went to StarClan and Bluestar chased him out.
In Crookedstar’s Promise, however, we first see him training in the Dark Forest with Shredtail, when Crookedjaw was looking for Mapleshade. Sometime later, When Mapleshade introduced Crookedjaw to Thistleclaw and his Dark Forest mentor, Silverhawk, Thistleclaw offers Crookedstar for him to teach him (Crookedjaw) the ‘killing bite’. Crookedjaw refuses
and Thistleclaw spills the beans that, Crookedjaw is in the Dark Forest. To me, Thistleclaw wanted to be there but only wished Snowfur and Whitestorm is with him. BUT if you have a different thought, that’s fine!
