Echomist examines the number of non-Clan cats in ThunderClan.
Hello! This is Echomist with another article!
This article is about how many cats have kittypet/rogue/loner/halfClan blood running through their veins (yeah that sounded weird)
So I’m going to attempt to do fractions, and I might stop at one point if it’s too hard (let’s hope my maths teacher isn’t reading)
MINOR SPOILERS FOR PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING. AND A MAJOR SPOILER FOR POWER OF THREE.
Whoops I did that in caps lock. Let’s try again.
Cloudtail is full kittypet. He and Brightheart have Whitewing, Ambermoon, Snowbush and Dewnose. Snowbush and Lilyheart have Leafshade, Honeyfur, and Larksong. Larksong and Sparkpelt have Finchpaw, Flamepaw, and Flickerkit. Whoa. Deaths all round.
Whitewing and Birchfall have Dovewing and Ivypool. Ivypool and Fernsong have Flipclaw, Bristlefrost, and Thriftear. Hold on, I didn’t know Bristlefrost was a she-cat!
Anyway Dovewing and HORRIBLE OLD TIGERHEART WHEN IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BUMBLESTRIPE have Lightleap, Shadowpaw, and Pouncestep (I don’t know what Shadowpaw’s warrior name is. Is it Shadowspots? It’s something like that.) They have no kits so the line ends there.
Whitewing, Ambermoon, Snowbush and Dewnose: half
Honeyfur, Larksong, Ivypool, Dovewing and Leafshade (I love that name): quarter
Flipclaw, Bristlefrost, Thriftear, Lightleap, Pouncestep, Shadowpaw, Flamepaw, Flickerkit and Finchpaw : eighth
Firestar is full kittypet. He and Sandstorm have two kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. They are both half-kittypet. But because Leafpool is a medicine cat, she doesn’t have kits- oh yeah, I actually seriously forgot that Lionblaze, Jayfeather and Hollyleaf were her kits there. Okay, so Leafpool and Crowfeather have those three. Hollyleaf does not have kits (or maybe she does with Fallen Leaves. Who knows?) and Jayfeather doesn’t either. Meaning that Leafpool’s kittypet blood is only carried by Lionblaze and making my life a lot easier.
So Cinderheart and Lionblaze have Hollytuft, Flywhisker, Sorrelstripe, Fernsong, and Snaptooth. That’s when things get a bit weird because Ivypool is Fernsong’s mate when they are actually very closely related. Ivypool and Fernsong have Flipclaw, Bristlefrost, and Thriftear. Sorrelstripe and, uh, I don’t know have Baypaw and Myrtlepaw.
Squirrelflight has Sparkpelt, Alderheart, Dandelionkit and Juniperkit with Bramblestar. Sparkpelt and Larksong have Flickerkit, Flamepaw and Finchpaw. Alderheart does not have kits because of med. cat stuff.
Just a quick recap:
Leafpool and Squirrelflight: half
Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, Alderheart, Sparkpelt and Jayfeather: quarter
Sorrelstripe, Fernsong, Flywhisker, Flamepaw, Finchpaw, Flickerkit, Flipclaw, Bristlefrost, Thriftear, Snaptooth and Hollytuft: eighth
Baypaw, Myrtlepaw: sixteenth
Owlstar is half kittypet because of the whole Tom thing. But he doesn’t have kits, so that’s the end of that.
Well I am regretting this idea. Okay, I said that I would do rogue and loner blood too, so here we are. Onto Daisy’s family tree.
Daisy is full loner. She has Berrynose, Mousewhisker, and Hazeltail with Smoky, and has Rosepetal and Toadstep with Spiderleg.
Berrynose has Cherryfall and Molewhisker with Poppyfrost, but they don’t have any kits.
Berrynose, Hazeltail and Mousewhisker: whole
Toadstep, Cherryfall, Molewhisker and Rosepetal: half
Why do I have to do Leafpool’s family tree again?
You know what, I’m just going to skip to the recap which makes no sense but I don’t care.
Lionblaze, Jayfeather and Hollyleaf: half
Hollytuft, Flywhisker, Sorrelstripe, Fernsong, and Snaptooth: quarter
Baypaw, Myrtlepaw, Flipclaw, Thriftear and Bristlefrost: eighth
Wow, this one’s a big one. Eaglestorm is full WindClan. He and Squirrelwhisker have Windflight. Windflight has Thrushpelt and Dappletail, and Windflight and Poppydawn have Thistleclaw, Sweetpaw and Rosetail. Dappletail and Runningwind have Featherkit and Cricketkit. Thistleclaw and Snowfur (StarClan knows why Snowfur was with Thistleclaw. IT’S BASICALLY TIGERSTAR AND GOLDENFLOWER!) and they have Whitestorm. Whitestorm and Brindleface have Ferncloud, Ashfur, Elderkit and Tulipkit, and Ferncloud and Dustpelt have Shrewpaw, Birchfall, Foxleap, Hollykit, Larchkit and Icecloud.
Birchfall and Whitewing have Ivypool and Dovewing. I AM NOT GOING TO REPEAT DOVEWING AND IVYPOOL’S FAMILY TREES FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.
Now, on the other side of things, Willowpelt and Whitestorm have Sorreltail, Sootfur and Rainwhisker. Sorreltail and Brackenfur have Cinderheart, Honeyfern, Poppyfrost, Lilyheart, Molepaw and Seedpaw. I have already done their family trees so I will go no further.
RECAP (StarClan help me):
Thrushpelt, Dappletail, Thistleclaw, Sweetpaw and Rosetail: quarter
Whitestorm, Featherkit and Cricketkit: eighth
Ferncloud, Ashfur, Tulipkit, Elderkit, Sorreltail, Sootfur and Rainwhisker: sixteenth
Shrewpaw, Birchfall, Foxleap, Icecloud, Larchkit, Hollykit, Honeyfern, Cinderheart, Poppyfrost, Lilyheart, Seedpaw and Molepaw: I don’t know how to say thirty-two in fractions.
Hollytuft, Flywhisker, Sorrelstripe, Fernsong, Spotfur, Ivypool, Dovewing, Honeyfur, Leafshade, Larksong and Snaptooth: sixty-fourth
Flipclaw, Thriftear, Shadowpaw, Bristlefrost, Lightleap, Pouncestep, Myrtlepaw, Baypaw, Flamepaw, Finchpaw and Flickerkit: one hundred and twenty-eighth (great StarClan)
I need a rest after that one. Please tell me in a comment if I have missed someone out and I will hopefully correct it if I am not still recovering from that.
I am going to stop there as my brain is melting from fractions and family trees. Thank you for reading, I hope it wasn’t too boring!
May StarClan light your path,
