never got to see their warrior ceremony.

Hello readers, I’m Brookepaw! I have an article to share. This is possibly spoilers so beware!

Apprentices. Where do I even start? Apprentices are kits who are old enough to begin training. Usually they are 6 moons old when they begin and 12 when they come out as warriors. It depends on their training progress. Some apprentices never become warriors and never get their true name. But now they will.

Ravenpaw- Ravenpaws death is unknown to me, but I know that he was never made a warrior because of TigerPHYCOPATH! Anyways, Ravenpaw as a younger apprentice was jumpy and uneasy so Bluestar might have given him the name Ravenshiver. But as an older cat, Ravenpaw was nice, calm and relaxed. Barley was a great help. If Bluestar knew Ravenpaw then, she would’ve named him something like Ravenfur or Ravenbreeze for his easiness.

Swiftpaw- I remember his death so well. Again it was TigerPHYCOPATH’s fault! Swiftpaw died because he wanted to prove to Bluestar that he was ready to be a warrior. He brought Brightpaw with him. At Snakerocks where the pack of dogs were, was where Swiftpaws life changed. Or ended. The dogs shredded the two apprentices. Swiftpaw wasn’t as lucky as Brightpaw was. Bluestar would’ve named Swiftpaw something easy for her to remember like Swiftrun or Swiftflight bu Firestar would’ve taken the chance to name him something like Swiftstorm.

Sweetpaw- Sweetpaw is one of the apprentices I don’t remember much, but I do remember that she died from food poisoning which is not a good reason to die. No offense Erin Hunter’s! Sweetpaw was alive in Bluestars time. Bluestar would have named her something like Sweetrose. Roses smell sweet so it makes sense.

Oakpaw- Oakpaw from way back in the days when Skyclan was kicked out of the forest, died from who knows what? Starvation? Well, his clan, Skyclan, got forced out of the forest and he died beside his clanmates. His name could’ve been Oakleap. The other apprentices, Tansypaw, Acornpaw, Snailpaw, and Mintpaw died too. There names could’ve been Tansywing, Acornleaf, Snailflight, and Mintwater.

These are not apprentices but kits. These would be their names.

Snowkit- *sniff* This deaf kit who wasn’t named because he got captured by a hungry eagle? Hawk? Anyways, his name would be Snowsong. He will sing his rights and truths.

Mosskit- I think it’s unfair for Mosskit to freeze to death while her brother and sister grow up in Riverclan. Mosskit’s name would’ve been Mossstream or Mossriver. Or maybe even Mossrain.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this article and that’s all for today!
Fun fact: Brookepaw- ginger and black tortoiseshell she-cat with a white chest, paws, and blue eyes
