Flamepaw shares what they noticed about the series.
I wanted to make an article, but my thoughts for an article fell a bit short, so I just have a compilation of thoughts. My main focus is on lineage. (Spoilers for TPB, PoT, OoTS, AVoS, TNP, Moth Flight’s Vision, Firestar’s Quest, Bluestar’s Prophecy, Tallstar’s Revenge, Enter the clans, and Code of the Clans Every Single Warriors Arc and probably all Super Editions and Novellas as Well.) You have been WARNED!!!
Mothwing is from all of the clans. *Shocked Silence* (Side note – Mothwing is also a Kittypet. The reason Tigerstar(1) hates kittypets so much is because his father, Pinestar, left to become a kittypet. So Mothwing is also a kittypet. Also, Hawkfrost is all of this as well.)
I might go off on a bit of a tangent sometimes, but here we go. Mothwing is one of the 2 cats from every single clan. The other is Hawkfrost. There may be more, but I don’t know. Some of this is based on great assuming skills. It is proven in the books(for the most part). First of all, she is obviously from Riverclan. That’s where she lives. Second, she is from Shadowclan because of Tigerstar(1). This one is a bit less obvious, as it may slip your mind. Third, she is from Thunderclan, again, Tigerstar(1). You probably forgot this one even more than the others. Fourth, she is from Windclan because Moth Flight spread her descendants into every clan (this is just a hunch). She would have to be a descendant of Moth Flight’s kits (Bubbling Stream, Honey Pelt, Spider Paw, and Blue Whisker). This has a high chance of being true, as she is from all of the clans her kits were spread into. Fifth, she is from Skyclan. In Firestar’s Quest, Firestar realizes that Tigerstar (the 1st) looks an awful lot like Gorseclaw, Cloudstar’s son. That means that she is also a bit Skyclan. I know almost none of you noticed that one. So, based on this analysis, Mothwing is from all 5 clans. (Side note – Bramblestar and His descendants are from all clans except Riverclan)
Alderheart and Sparkpelt are almost half Kittypet.
This one is much easier. Firestar is all Kittypet. So Squirrelflight is half Kittypet. That means that Alderheart and Sparkpelt are ¼ Kittypet. They get an additional 1/16 from Bramblestar. *Surprise!* Pinestar is all kittypet. Tigerstar(1) is half kittypet. Bramblestar is ⅛ kittypet. That means Alderheart and Sparkpelt get an additional 1/16 kittypet, resulting in a total of 5/16 kittypet for them.
Mistystar is the oldest cat in existence
This one is much more obvious. She is the oldest cat by far. She dates all the way back to Bluestar’s prophecy, the only one from that book who is still alive (I think). Mistystar is a bit younger than Tigerstar(1), And he has been dead for countless seasons. Everyone that old has been dead for a while. The only cat who is kind of maybe close in age is Rowanstar, but he’s dead. There is no one nearly as old as Mistystar. As far as I can tell she has been alive for roughly 17 seasons (I think???), and most cats die before seven seasons. At this point, she is even older than Tallstar was one his deathbed!!! She should have been in the elder’s den for at least seven seasons now, but she still continues to lead her clan. If you thought Tallstar was old, then Mistystar is Ancient!!! She is a living Rock, still alive and leading her clan. She will be like Tallstar, Dying of old age or in combat, like Russetfur, dying in battle because she was too old to fight. The cats that would be close to her age are cats like Yellowfang, who have been dead forever. Mistystar is like a 120-year-old lady, expected to die any day now.
She should definitely die by the beginning of The Broken Code or die in the very first book. She is far too old to still be able to do all warriors duties. She has been everything but an elder, and she should already be one. There is nothing else I can say on this without repeating myself. She should be dead, and in my mind, is like a living skeleton. I am done with this.
On a completely random and unrelated note, the Erins should link the warriors wiki and the warriors discord to Blogclan, and link that to the warriorscats.com. It would really help people be connected, and people could try each and every experience and see which one they liked best. It would be reaching out to each and every warriors site so you can go on whichever you’d like. That would be nice.
Medicine cats have become a main POV
This should be very interesting. Medicine cats have become some of the main characters with a POV. It all started when they added cinderpelt to the series. The crippled medicine cat went over quite well with the fandom.
So, the next step was to have a medicine cat with a warrior sibling: Leafpool and Squirrelflight. Both of these cats having POV’s went down wonderfully with the fandom. You got the regular warrior experience while getting to experience being a medicine cat for the first time. Next, they added the 3 to the mix, 1 medicine cats and 2 warriors. They all had POV’s, so we got to experience reality in 3 different ways. Now we get 1 medicine cat and 1 warrior, only 1 with a POV. Then give 2 kits of a prophecy a POV and, you have an amazing series.
The Final Topic – Warriors in general
The Erins have done a wonderful job of masterfully sculpting the warriors series into what it is today. All the arcs, the plot twists, the new, innovative ways that warriors run into problems and deal with them, but it still feels like we are with the original clans from TPB. I just wanted to thank the Erins for doing this, giving us this wonderful series that I have been attached to all my life. It must take so much time and effort to do this, so thanks. This is the best book series I have ever encountered, and have loved it ever since.
Everyone should just take the time to introduce someone they know to the series. Even if they don’t like it, it is definitely worth a try. I think I’ve run out of things to say.
