Moonmist lists their 10 favourite Warriors characters. Do you agree with their list?
Hello! This is my first article so don’t blame me if I don’t get it right.
So my favourite cats are…
I think Purdy doesn’t get as much love as he deserves. He got the group of cats to the sun-drown place, however long it took. But they were all annoyed by him and he was just trying to help them. Purdy was also a very important cat in Clan history. He fought in the Great Battle. So give him some respect, for StarClan’s sake!
The poor apprentice that was struck by a monster. She didn’t want to be a medicine cat, but I suppose it was her destiny. But I still hold a grudge against Firestar because he didn’t try to stop her.
Onewhisker, not Onestar. Onestar is a pain in the tail.
Retrieving WindClan was one of Fireheart’s first warrior duties, and when he and Greystripe went on the quest, Fireheart came home with a friend in WindClan. Onewhisker wasn’t hostile when all of the rest were. Did I mention I hate Onestar?
A nervous apprentice who was scared out of his mind by his mentor, Tigerclaw. He was taken to the farm to live with Barley, and now he is not nervous. It’s a happily ever after.
I don’t know why he is seventh. I have just always had a soft spot for the terrorised apprentice.
Firestar and Ravenpaw were very close. It must have been hard to leave him behind when they left in the Great Journey.
The graceful leader who’s mind shattered after Tigerclaw’s betrayal. The cat that brought Firestar into the forest (Firestar betrayed her at one point). The cat that had to give up her kits. She gets to be sixth because I feel bad for her.
Ooooh, halfway there!
Crookedstar was the greatest leader the Clans have ever known. But it cost him a lot. He broke his jaw, and his mother (Rainflower) didn’t love him any more. But he became RiverClan’s leader, so she is a mouse-brain. I quite like Crookedstar.
Not Tigerstar. Tigerclaw.
The unsuspected senior warrior. Always quick to leap into battle, and judge kittypets, of course! He tried to murder Bluestar to become leader. The evil cat’s ambition was bloodthirsty, and he would stop at nothing to get what he wanted. He was mentored by Thistleclaw, making it the mentor’s fault that he was evil. He killed many, many cats. Annoying furball.
Okay, Mapleshade? You might be thinking, “Why is Mapleshade number three on your list? She shouldn’t even be on your list!”
I know, but if Ravenwing hadn’t been a mouse-brain, and if Frecklewish hadn’t been a badger-heart, and if Appledusk had kept his mouth shut, she wouldn’t be in the dark forest. She would be in StarClan. She would have lived longer.
So it’s their faults, not hers! ALL SHE EVER TRIED TO DO WAS LOVE! Oh, and it’s Perchpaw’s fault too for killing her. She is quite clever. She tricked Crookedstar and that is quite hard to do.
I have always loved the old she-cat that foster-mothered Bluestar’s kits. She was killed by Tigerclaw (how many cats were killed by him?) to find out who the real mother of Mistystar and Stonefur was. She told Firestar about Mistystar and Stonefur; how they weren’t her kits. She was Crookedstar’s mate’s sister, making her a very important cat in RiverClan. She deserves it.
And finally, in first place…
The she-cat that suffered so much as she watched ShadowClan be destroyed by her own son. She was banished by him too. That is cruel. But he didn’t know that she was his mother. It is breaking the medicine cat code to have kits. Oh, and the son killed the father. Harsh.
Anyway, ThunderClan took her in as prisoner, but she died a medicine cat! Another happy ending!
Not her death. That isn’t happy.
She also mentored Cinderpelt (if you want to know more about her, go to number nine).
Bye for now!
