Sunpaw questions why Tigerstar tried to kill all half-clan cats in TigerClan.
It’s always bothered me that Tigerstar tried to kill half-clan cats in TigerClan despite TigerClan being an effort to combine all the Clans. The excuse used for it is “Half-Clan cats can’t be trusted”. My problem with that is they have no other Clan to go to if they do betray TigerClan. I have some theories;
1. I noticed that all the half-clan cats that Tigerstar tried to kill/killed are half ThunderClan. It’s been heavily implied(or stated(I just came up with this theory while watching Moonkitti’s I Spoil The Darkest Hour video, so I haven’t read The Prophecies Begin in a while)) that Tigerstar has a grudge against ThunderClan so this could be a way of getting revenge.
2. Tigerstar just doesn’t follow logic because this shouldn’t happen. All 9 of Tigerstar’s lives were given for compassion and other similar feelings. One would assume that¬¬¬¬¬¬¬ if that is true, Tigerstar wouldn’t be killing half-clan cats out of a grudge, or just Tigerstar’s grudge is too strong to follow StarClan’s wishes.
3. It could also be a grudge against Firepaw/Fireheart/Firestar, In The Last Hope, Tigerstar said he hates Firestar so he trained the dark forest to wipe out all the clans, I’m going to say that Tigerstar has always tried to destroy Firestar by destroying the thing he loves the most, his clan.
4. Tigerstar might just hate all cats that aren’t followers of him, so he decides to kill the Half-Clan cats first, because they’re the easiest cats to kill and get away with it.
Why did Leopardstar agree with Tigerstar’s plans?
The real question here is, why did Leopardstar agree with Tigerstar to form TigerClan, I find it strange that she believed Tigerstar that they would be joint leaders of TigerClan, it looks like Firestar and Tallstar have more sense than a leader who’s been leader for longer( I think ).
Leopardstar is probably one of the oldest leaders, so that might be a problem as well, she forgot what make sense and what doesn’t.
Another reason could be that Tigerstar’s treachery to ThunderClan wasn’t revealed to all clans before he decided to form ShadowClan and RiverClan into TigerClan. If I’m correct, when Firestar tried to tell the other Clans about Tigerstar being evil and all that, a storm came and interrupted him right before the gathering ended.
