Widowpelt writes an analysis about Ashfur.
Hey blogclan! I’m here to make an analysis article about ashfur (even though I suck at these but eh) who is one of my favourite characters in the Warriors franchise.
Ashfur is born to Whitestorm and Brindleface, and his siblings are Ferncloud, Tulipkit and Elderkit. Ashfur is seen as a nice loving kit, apprentice, and young warrior. But, in the Power of three: Long Shadows, he attempts to murder/drive out Hollyleaf, Jayfeather, Lionblaze and Squirrelflight, but gets killed by Hollyleaf. As a young kit, his littermates, Tulipkit and Elderkit, barely survive two books. His mother fosters Cloudkit in the nursery, but he eventually gets taken away by twolegs. Ferncloud isn’t much help either with Dustpelt. Brindleface and Whitestorm die before he becomes a warrior, so he loses everyone around him. The only person in his life he really loves is Squirrelflight. They have a little relationship but she turns him down for Brambleclaw. Ashfur is absolutely devastated because he has no love or affection shown for him. If you weren’t shown love or affection would you go crazy? Probably! So he tries to murder the three, but fails, and decides to reveal their secret at the gathering, which is an appropriate reaction. But then Hollyleaf kills him and reveals it at the gathering. Yellowfang accepts him into starclan because he loved too much and I totally agree with her. He didn’t have anyone who loved him on earth, well anyone who showed it and he loved Squirrelflight too much. This gives him so much uniqueness and lots more character than piles of sawdust like Hollyleaf. People should stop judging him because Squirrelflight rejected him and focus on why he did the things he did.
