Minnowleap lists their favourite characters from the series. Spoilers for AVOS!
I will be sharing my top 3 favorite warrior cats, I could go all day long with this so I narrowed it down to these fantastic kitties! (There IS a possible chance for spoilers!!! be warned….) Also, this is my first article! ^^
1.) Gray Wing
Gray wing is my most favorite! The reasonings are, When his brother Clear Sky decided to leave the mountains he had a hard choice to make. He stayed with his mother because she needed him, his sister Futtering Bird was slowly dying, meanwhile his other brother, Jagged Peak was a curious little kit! So Gray Wing decided to stay with his mother. But of course Jagged Peak ran off to find the group of cats that were following The Sun Trail. This leads to my next reason, Gray Wing goes through 3 cats that he cared and loved for, The First Storm. After Storm rejected him, had kits with Clear Sky, and then got crushed by a boulder, leaving a tiny kit that he soon named, Thunder, he forgave Clear Sky and moved on. His second love, Turtle Tail gave him affection and never left his side. She then decided to go to the Twolegs with her friend Bumble (if I remember correctly) and had a forced and abused relationship with a tom cat named tom. When Turtle Tail arrived back Tom stole her kits, Gray Wing later finds out the Turtle Tail got crushed by a monster!! Poor Gray Wing. Finally, he meets Slate, I don’t see why people get mad about this because he moved on with Turtle Tail, bc if he didn’t he would still be grieving. Anyways Slate, his last and final love, they had kits and a strong romance. (skip ahead in time again) After Gray Wing falls to the ground in the snow, Slate tells him to go back into his den bc he needs rest. After all his family comes, and surrounds him, he thanks them, and sadly dies. Gray Wing is a very important cat in this series, without him the Clans would have never began, also after the rejection of his kits moving to different clans, he still forgave and kept a positive attitude, this is why I love Gray Wing!
When I first read Bluestar’s prophecy I couldn’t stop reading it! Throughout the book you see how she fees and reacts to things in her P.O.V. I don’t like her just because she was a Clan Leader but bc of her Loyalty, Bravery, and going with her gut feelings. Im going to skip ahead in time by A LOT. Like when she had kits with Oakheart, she loved them as much as any mother besides Rainflower *glares* Anyways, she new deep down inside that she couldn’t let Thistleclaw be clan leader, some people think of this selfish..I see why you think it is but what do you think would happen is Thistlestar existed…*shivers at the thought* Bluestar met up with Oakheart and gave her kits back, she lied about a fox or something taking them, all the clan was horrified but her, and Goosefeather. Out of this, this makes Bluestar a TRUE leader, having to do what no other cats would even think of. She also risked her last life to help Fireheart(star) and at the last moment she saw her two kits, Stonefur, and Mistyfoot(star) and she told them the truth and how great of a mother their foster mother was, and that she was sorry and over them very much.
I will say that I’ve only read The Apprentices Quest and Shattered Sky. but Needletail is still my top 3…along with others. The reasons won’t be very convincing or long, one reason I like Needletail is bc she is basically a mother to Violetshine and she always looked up to her and followed her. Needletail was very loyal and fun to read on the chapters she was involved in (in my opinion!!) Her death was very brutal with Darktail (the kin) and I respect the fact that just bc she went on that quest with Alderpaw(heart) docent mean that she has to like him AND he’s a med. app so like…he can’t have a mate o.O. Needletail is a worthy Starclan warrior and I and Violetshine will always look up to her :3
Im vey sorry this was so long, it was my first soooo tell me your opinions about my article and the cats, say if you agree or not! Im okay with that :).
Questions to answer; Do you think Needletail deserves to be in Starclan, and explain why?
Do you think Bluestar was selfish to give away her kits for Clan Leader?
Did Gray Wing deserve to have so much bad things happen to him?
