Cinnamonpaw talks about Darktail and Onestar during the events of AVOS.
Hey guys! It Cinnamonpaw here with a second article! I wrote The Mystery of Redstar as Hibiscuspaw, and I’m so glad you all liked it. Anyways, that’s off topic. Lets start!
So, Darktail is the main antagonist in A Vision of Shadows. And I’m sorry if this upsets everyone, but he my absolute favorite antagonist in all the Warriors books. I mean, we don’t learn of his his full story until Shattered Sky, but I still found him very interesting in The Apprentice’s Quest. He clearly was powerful enough to take over the entire gorge with his rouges, and then both Shadowclan’s and Riverclan’s territory by the lake. And looking into Shattered Sky, we find out about his past. According to Onestar, Darktail WAS HIS SON!!!! Which totally made me burst! He has the perfect character development, just like both Tigerstar and Scourge had in The Prophecies Begin. The son of a clan cat and a rouge, “rejected” by his father and taught to reject the clans and their ways, I mean, his reasons for his choices finally made perfect sense, as of Onestar’s in fleeing the battle in the first chapters in Shattered Sky. It finally made all perfect sense, and led me to absolutely making Darktail my favorite villain. And the epic father-son battle at the end of the book became my favorite battle of all time! It shows how much blood of kin does not always matter. Onestar was so loyal to his clan that he ended up sacrificing his life to save his clan- well, in that case, ALL the clans. He terminated Darktail to save everyone! I know most of you hated him as leader, and in the last arc, but he had his reasons, and ended up turning right around and killing himself and his son for the good of the clans.
Well, I am done pleading Onestar and Darktail’s cases. Their character developments made all the events in Hawkwing’s Journeys and A Vision of Shadows make sense. These two are now my favorite father-son pair. But what do you think? Do you love, or hate these two? Do you think their resons were good enough?
Thank you for listening to my frantic meowing about Darktail and Onestar! I hope you all liked this article and I’ll be sure to write more articles in the future!
