Mountainstorm shares their favourite and least favourite characters from the series.
Hello warriors, kits, apprentices, elders!
My name is Mountainpaw, and I am new to this Clan, and this is my first fan article. So I thought writing about my favorite and least favorite characters would be a nice introduction. I’ll start with my least favorites. Number one will be the character I hate most, and I will explain why. And do not be mad at me…..this is my opinion!
Personally, I do not hate Hawkfrost. What I do hate is that he was made evil just because his father was Tigerstar. And after reading a Shadow in RiverClan, it was pretty upsetting to find out he really DID turn evil after Feathertail’s message that heritage does not matter and you have to judge cats for who they are, not who there parent’s were. I thought it was a really nice message, but, instead of sticking to it, Hawkfrost DOES become evil. Just because. And that really deflated the message of “do not judge a book by its cover” So, all in all, I do not hate Hawkfrost, but the way he was used.
I completely understand his decision to leave SkyClan. The only thing that upsets me about this character is that he broke his promise right after he made it. He listened to Leafstar’s words, and said “I do” And right after, he broke it. He had the right to leave the clan, and I understand him, but then why did he say “I do”?
I think this choice is pretty obvious, but I had to put it in. He made kits kill an apprentice,
and did not even care. He was very cruel, but he had a second chance given to him. And what did he do? He threw it out the window. Or should I say threw it out the den?
He was ok as Brambleclaw, though a little plain. But when he was leader…He is a horrible, unfair leader, and treats his mate and deputy like fresh-kill. He does not really take in note other cats feelings, especially Squrrielflight’s. And once again, the problem with Tigerstar’s kits.
1. After hard thought, I chose Ravenwing.
Sure, he was a fine medicine cat, and Mapleshade was kind of too trusting in her clan mates, but Ravenwing…. First, he told Oakstar Mapleshade’s secret. Frecklewish I kind of understand. because she was blinded by her broken heart for her brother. When she found out that her friend’s kits were actually not her brother’s, but his killers, she snapped. She was not able to see that Mapleshade loved Appledusk before Appledusk killed Birchface. But Ravenwing had no connection to Birchface, and just betrayed Mapleshade because he could.
Ok, now for my favorite ones!
Sure, he is super grumpy, and some people hate him because they say everyone is trying to help him and he just lashes out. But you have to see it from everyone’s point of veiw. To Jayfeather, he can smell and hear and feel everything the others can, and even better. And he has the rest of the warriors going around, treating him like a kit when he is perfectly capable. I love characters with personality, and Jayfeather is choke full with it.
Leafstar is fair and kind, and strong and wise. She had her paws full with her kits and her clan, but she handles it well and stands tall on all four paws. Who would not enjoy reading about this strong leader?
Ok, I know most people hate her too. But I actually like her. She was a young and foolish leader at first, blinded by ambition. But she stood up again, admitting her mistakes and saying sorry to Feathertail and Stormfur. She learned from her flaws, and fixed her clan. And RiverClan stood tall once more.
I did not enjoy Squirrelpaw too much. She was stubborn and ignorant. But as a warrior, Squirrelflight is wise, strong, and independent, but not too much. She is another character who does not lack any personality!
All right! Time for my number one favorite character…DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
I LOVE Feathertail. She is intelligent, independent, wise, strong, brave, kind, caring…
She lived through a terrible period in her apprenticeship, when she was in TigerClan.
But she stood tall, and helped fight off BloodClan with fierce loyalty. She is ready at the command, and I think she would have made a fine leader. After reading A shadow in RiverClan, I conformed! Feathertail is the best! She selflessly sacrificed herself for her true loves life, and for the life of the tribe. I cannot tell you how bitter that scene was for me. But, Feathertail lives on in the books, in our hearts, in our minds. Feathertail is truly an inspiring character, who will always make number one on my list.
Alright, thank you for reading, I had tons of fun writing this!
And do not never speak to me again if you disagree. Everyone has their opinions!
Till the next gathering!
