So what’s the deal with Firestar?
*Includes some spoilers*
He’s the cat who appeared in the first book, all the way to the Last Hope, and many more in between. With his blazing red fur that turns to fire in the sunlight, strong and caring personality, plus large and ever growing family and Clan of cats, what’s not to like?
But that’s just it. Many people find him to be one of their least favorite Warrior Cats and here’s why:
This cat has been in the spotlight for a whole series, Super Edtion, and even afterwards, still leaves a large and everlasting impression on the Clan. Some people find him too involved. He’s in countless prophecies, and even if they’re not about him, he usually ends up involved in them anways.
– “Fire alone can save our Clan.”
This was definitely all about him.
– “Before there is peace, blood will spill blood, and the lake will run red.”
He wasn’t even in this prophecy and yet, he was there! He caused the fight and the blood spilling which fulfilled the prophecy.
– “There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws.”
It was given to him and later included him when it updated to have a fourth cat.
Many people find him too special and too involved in the other Clans. Always going to help them, even when they refuse his help, taking in kittypets, etc.
But through all of this, he has been involved in and caused his fair share of problems. One example is when he and Greystripe fed food to RiverClan.
To summarize- He may seem purr-fect to some and be their favorite Warrior Cat ever. (*cough* me *cough*) But to others, he will always be known as a Gary Stu.
“Loyalty is what matters, and that exists now, not in the past. Loyalty must be prove every day, in each piece of fresh-kill brought back to the Clan, every claw mark on our enemies, every patrol, every training session.”
