Wolftooth takes a different look at Tigerstar.
Hello! My name is Wolftooth, and today I Will be talking about are well known killer, Tigerstar. He is one of the well known villains, for MANY things. But,
He Is Not Evil
He was not born evil, he was not evil, and he isn’t
And here is where I will prove that statement
Let’s go back to the first part I know.
He has a strong connection with ShadowClan, because we soon figure out in a book (I think) Secrets of the Clans, that some warriors of ShadowClan, saved his life when he was a kit, from some foxes. He told the cats he liked them, and that he would repay ShadowClan
As you may also know, the other cat, Thistleclaw, is not a very nice cat.
Now, before we get into this tom, you may be wondering, What is so important about Tigerstar as a kit with ShadowClan? Well, we will get to that soon, I promise!!
Okay, like I said, Thistleclaw is not a good cat, and if you have read, The Rise Of Scourge, a manga made by the Erin Hunter team, you may see a scene, when Tiny wanders into the forest, and walks in on a patrol of ThunderClan cats, made up of Bluefur, Thistleclaw, and his apprentice, Tigerpaw. Thistleclaw says that Tiny needs to be taugh a lesson for trespassing, even though Bluefur’s pleads that he is just a kit, and a kitty let, no knowing of the Warrior Code. Thistleclaw demands for Tigerpaw to punish the kit, and Tigerpaw attacks Tiny, ripping the bell of his collar, and giving him many scars. You see, Thistleclaw teaches Tigerpaw to be violent. And I bet you, he taught him how to be ambiguous, which come to the “I will become leader” stuff. Since Tigerclaw says he will become leader, does stuff for that, fails, gets exiled, and Joins ShadowClan, and becomes their leader, you realize that, He was doing all that, because of Thistleclaw. Snow fur, why you fall in love with evil?
Thistleclaw taught Tigerclaw all this stuff, if Thistleclaw was not Tigerclaws mentor, things would be better. Way better.
Tigerclaw is not evil. Thistleclaw is. Tiger is just being manipulated.
Hope you enjoyed my Theory!
