Nightfern shares why they think Snowkit would have been a great character if given the chance.
Hello all you people reading this. This is my first article and i decided to talk about one of my favourite kits, Snowkit!
Snowkit was born a deaf kit and i found this very interesting because in the series that far there was no deaf cats. If he had a P.O.V in the series we could have learned about how he coped with being deaf, a bit like with Jayfeather coping with his blindness. Brackenfur said that when Snowkit was an apprentice he would have liked to mentor him. To see how Brackenfur would deal with Snowkit would have been interesting( i say interesting too much in this) and we would have been able to see character development in Brackenfur as well as Snowkit. This could have affected the whole series though. Snowkit may have had a mate if he became a warrior and Brackenfur would probably have been deputy since he showed he could mentor a deaf kit.
Back to Snowkit, we would have learned more about him and how , if to become a warrior, he would have fought and hunted. Like Jayfeather, he could have had a great sense of smell and maybe sight. If he were to become a medicine cat, it may have been a bit like Jayfeather except deaf and with sight. Also it quite annoys me that Snowkit was killed off just to move Speckletail to the elders den. I think too many deaths happen just so plot points would make sense. For example Honeyfern was killed off for a reason for there to be deathberries in camp and Runningwind’s death was a bit pointless?
Anyway, like i said before, Snowkit would have been a very interesting character to read about if he maybe had a novella. I think his warrior or medicine cat name would have been Snowear because deafness reference. I was really upset when Snowkit was taken by the hawk and i want to believe the theory that he was dropped and taken in by a friendly twoleg but im pretty sure its not true. His death was quite pointless really.
And there we have it, my first article done! Tell me what you think about Snowkit and if he should have become a warrior and not taken by the hawk 🙁
Thank you for reading!
