Hi, Whitepaw here and I was wondering about a question that many of you guys have probably wondered about: Who is the leader of StarClan? After reading Moth Flight’s Vision, I came to a conclusion that makes a lot more sense than I first realized: Half Moon. This article is more of a Half Moon is the leader of StarClan than a who is the leader of StarClan article, but I will be exploring other possibilities at the end. Anyway, let’s get started!

I have a fair amount of reasons why Half Moon is the StarClan leader. Even though she wasn’t really a part of the clans, she was a true founder because she sent the cats to follow the Sun Trail and establish the clans. She also talked to Moth Flight like she was the leader of StarClan. She was one of the first cats to go to StarClan and it just makes sense. It makes sense that a cat named Half-Moon would be the first leader of StarClan. Imagine she’s the moon and the rest of StarClan are stars. That’s kind of strange, but it kind of makes sense as well. Also, I just like Half Moon and she had a great destiny. If she’s the first leader of the tribe, can’t she be the first leader of StarClan and the Tribe of Endless Hunting as well?

I can’t think of anybody else who could be the leader of StarClan. Shaded Moss or Gray Wing make some sense, except Gray Wing is pretty much ordinary if you think about how the books could have been about anybody but they chose Gray Wing. We just don’t get to see that much of Shaded Moss and I don’t think she would be the leader of StarClan. I guess the founders could lead together, except the cat before the founders was Half Moon, and none of the six of them will ever be forgotten as long as the clans exist. I have something interesting to say. If Half Moon is the leader of StarClan, then she is one of the founders, kind of, which means she deserves to be the leader of StarClan. But that’s like saying she deserves to be the leader of StarClan because she is the leader of StarClan. Basically what I’m saying, is that if you wanted the leader of StarClan to be a founder, the first leader of StarClan would be a founder anyway. I think that Gray Wing ought to be the leader of StarClan because he deserves to be a founder, except Half Moon was there before him I think and her name makes more sense.

Anyway, that’s who I think the leader of StarClan is and why. I hope you liked the article and comment below to say who you think the leader of StarClan is.

Am I the only one who doesn’t like Half Moon? I think that the original leaders would probably lead it together.

What about STAR FLOWER?!? (That’s what I’d been thinking, anyway.)

I pretty much agree, but Half Moon is never mentioned in the latter series, so I think she may have been the leader before Bluestar & Firestar’s time, but not now

I have a theory.
It seems me that starclan are not the greater force.
I doubt that they’re vague only 2 annoy the clan cats, i think it is because they don’t know the answers themselves, someone or something, some force makes the prophecies and tells them 2 starclan, but then the question is, who are these cats?
And i have had an idea, are these cats the early settles or whatever they’re called, or maybe even just the cats who made the clans?
It is confirmed that Shadowstar hasn’t faded in the prologue of River of Fire because she is seen in Starclan but what if she just came from some other place and came down 2 starclan 2 send that one message?

I think the leaders are rock and midnight. they are older than the clans.

It seems like bluestar makes the executive decisions in starclan. 🤷‍♂️
