Flamekit takes a look at Bluestar’s family tree.
Hello, BlogClan! I’m Flamekit, or Flamey, and this is my second BlogClan article. My first article was Analyzing Tigerstar’s Family Tree, so I really like looking closely at cats’ family trees and seeing if I can uncover any surprising family members.Today I’m going to be looking at Bluestar’s family tree, and, like in my last article, looking at her relationship with other cats she wasn’t related to. WARNING! Contains spoilers for The Prophecies Begin, Redtail’s Dept, and probably some others I can’t think of.
1. Moonflower- Bluestar’s mother. She died in Bluestar’s very first battle, in a raid on WindClan.
2. Stormtail- Bluestar’s father. He was rather distant from his kits, though Bluestar cared about him very much. He was mentor to Brindleface, and he died during a hard leafbare with very little prey.
3. Goosefeather- Goosefeather was Moonflower’s brother, making him Bluestar’s uncle. He was commonly known as the crazy medicine cat, as he had the ability to see into the future.
4. Daisytoe- Daisytoe was Moonflower’s mother and Bluestar’s grandmother.
5. Rooktail- Rooktail was Daisytoe’s mate and Moonflower’s father, making him Bluestar’s grandfather.
6. Flashnose- Flashnose was Daisytoe’s sister and Bluestar’s great-aunt.
7. Swiftbreeze- Swiftbreeze was Flashnose’s kit, and she was mother to Leopardfoot, the mother of Pinestar’s kits. She was Moonflower’s cousin, making her Bluestar’s second-cousin.
8. Patchpelt, Redtail, Leopardfoot, Spottedleaf, Willowpelt- Redtail, Willowpelt, Leopardfoot, Spottedleaf, and Patchpelt were Swiftbreeze’s kits, making them Moonflower’s second-cousins and Bluestar’s……… Third cousins? Second cousins once removed? I’m not sure. Redtail was killed by Tigerclaw in an attempt to become deputy. Leopardfoot was the mother of Tigerclaw, hence suckling the monster that killed her brother. Spottedleaf was the ThunderClan medicine cat when Firestar (Rusty) came to the forest, but she was killed just after he arrived by Clawface, during a raid to steal kits by ShadowClan.
9. Snowfur- Bluestar’s sister, mate of Thistleclaw and mother of Whitestorm. She was sadly killed on a thunderpath when she ran across without checking for monsters. She was the one who took care of Mosskit when she died.
1. Mosskit- Bluestar’s kit who was frozen to death in Bluestar’s desperate attempt to her and her siblings to safety with RiverClan.
2. Mistyfoot- Bluestar and Oakheart’s surviving daughter. Mistyfoot, later Mistystar, was mother to four kits, one of whom later became her deputy. She was mentor to Feathertail.
3. Stonefur- Stonefur was Bluestar and Oakheart’s son, and he made it to RiverClan with his sister, Mistyfoot. Stonefur was mentor to Stormfur, and his apprentice and Feathertail had to watch as, when he refused to kill them, the life was ripped out of him by Darkstripe and Blackfoot.
4. Perchkit, Primrosepaw, Pikepaw- Three of Mistyfoot’s kits, one did not survive through kithood and two did not survive through their apprenticeships. All three kits plus their brother, Reedwhisker, were nearly drowned when the river flooded, but Graystrigpe and Firestar saved them.
5. Reedwhisker- Reedwhisker was the only one of Mistyfoot’s kits to survive through his kithood and his apprenticeship. Mistyfoot later appointed him her deputy when she became Mistystar.
