Tuliptalon wonders who else could’ve be sent to the Dark Forest.
So.. some Warriors characters, such as in the Super Editions, are shown alive and currently are “living as of that book”. However, some of these characters are very sketchy to me, so I will share my thoughts.
Brightflower: Brightflower is the mother of Yellowfang, Rowanberry, and Nutwhisker. She appears in Yellowfang’s Secret, and despite her being a nice character, she did show signs of anger. She reprimands Yellowfang multiple times throughout the book, and the most numerous time as when Brokenstar told her Yellowfang murdered her two kits. She was furious and totally turned down her daughter- and her medicine cat. I would find that highly offensive in StarClan’s point of view, and maybe she was sent to the Dark Forest because of that.
Deerfoot: He is the kit of you guessed it- Lizardstripe. Lizardstripe was ambitious, and that made Deerfoot ambitious too. He appears to enjoy mocking poor Brokenkit, refusing to play his games and calling him “Badger-stinky” When Yellowfang intervenes,Deerkit looks awfully defiant.. He loves Tigerclaw when he comes to ShadowClan and supports him a lot. I really think he went to the Dark Forest because of his actions.
Stumpytail: You know Stumpytail: his mentor was Brokenstar, and he really loved Brokenstar’s ambitious nature. When Brokenstar was driven out he became a rogue and fought ThunderClan. And he supports Tigerclaw’s rise to power. Definitely the Dark Forest for him.
Lilywhisker: This WindClan elder was crippled when a cave-in occured while tunneling, while also killing Leafshine. Theories have flown around in my head for ages now, and I think this was no accident- it was murder. I think Lilywhisker was being secretly trained in the Dark Forest and wanted to murder Leafshine in a Mapleshade style. She must have done the cave-in on purpose, and she earned her rank there for sure.
Tangleburr- Of course, another kit of Lizardstripe. The queen’s ambitions reached Tanglekit and she did the exact thing that Deerkit did- mocking Brokenkit and refusing to play his games. She supports Tigerclaw all the way and fought to drive WindClan out. She must have gone to the Dark Forest for sure, if nothing else.
