Leafdapple shares their favourite cats from the series. Which of these cats are on your list?
I’ve seen loads of people write articles on their favourite characters, so naturally I wanted to write one too. Anyway, I have a few controversial opinions as well so this should be exciting!
#5: Clear Sky
I know a lot of people hate him, but he’s such a complicated character (and I might make another article defending him). His struggles with Gray Wing and everything else make for an awesome plot and I personally found his chapters the most interesting of all of them. He is my favourite DotC character as you can see by my list.
I don’t like Bramblestar as much, but Brambleclaw is one of my favourites. I love how he continually proves himself to be a loyal warrior and separate himself from his father’s shadow. This is especially hard for him in Sunset as well because of Tigerstar’s and Hawkfrost’s influence. Him and Squirrelflight are a great couple too!
#3: Dovewing and Ivypool
Many people hate Dovewing. A smaller amount hate Ivypool, but I’m one of those people who likes both equally! I can really empathise with both Dovewing and Ivypool: Dovewing for her responsibilities from when she was an apprentice and the Tigerheart vs Bumblestripe triangle and Ivypool for the jealousy of being overshadowed by someone else. These she-cats are both brilliant and I think that there is no reason not to like both. I know they both have flaws, but if they didn’t they’d be boring (Dovewing is NOT a Mary-Sue, she has many problems like coping with her power, and would a Mary-Sue whine about it? No! And she only whined as a young apprentice. She was never mean to Ivypool, only maybe tactless).
Jayfeather is amazing and really relatable. I understand how he feels when everyone feels sorry for him all the time, and he has such courage to turn away from the destiny he always wanted, to the one he knew he must choose. He then had to deal with his true parentage and the humiliation that came with it. He’s really interesting as a character and as a medicine cat as well.
Leafpool is so kind and gentle. I can relate to her, also being sensitive and I think her life has been so hard. She had to make so many sacrifices, from her kits, to Crowfeather, for a while her job as a medicine cat, her dignity, looking after the whole cla- I could go on for ever. And all the while, she hardly ever complained (which I would have if I was her and there are certain times when people need to complain). Leafpool is one of the most dedicated medicine cats ever.
Let me know what you think in the comments!
Bye until my next article!
