Emberfrost and Clockpaw take a look at one of the series’s most well-known villains, Scourge.
Hi, so I’m Emberfrost, and that’s Clockpaw, kinda new to this but we honestly think that most “villains” aren’t villains. A lot of people disagree with us, and I know that, but here is my first article on this “series” I’m gonna be doing– Misunderstood Villains.
Scourge– so many things to say about this cat. He was considered a “villain” in the series “Warriors”, and if you don’t look into it too much, yeah he is a villain, he killed a lot of cats. But he was once an innocent kit too! All “villains” were, and you should understand that Tiny was attacked by Tigerpaw, who was told to do so by Thistleclaw. At this point in his life, certain cats could have prevented him from growing into Scourge. Like Bluefur, let’s start with her! Bluefur just sat there and let Tigerpaw attack Tiny, a kit who could never defend himself, she could have told Thistleclaw and Tigerpaw to just give him a warning and send him on his way.
I agree with Emberfrost, Bluefur could’ve helped Tiny, but I do get why she didn’t. He was an unknown kit, and she did eventually tell Tigerpaw that what he had done was enough and ended up saving Tiny’s life. However, we’re not done yet with our argument. After this, Tiny tried to take off his collar with a dog tooth/claw, some rogues were gonna attack him when they saw the tooth and asked how it got there, in fear of being attacked he said he fought off a dog. I mean, wouldn’t you? Anyway, so these cats had him go scare off the dog, and his shadow did– blah blah we all know that– so these cats took him in as their leader. As you can see, he was never actually evil!
As Clockpaw said, he was never actually evil. Scourge only took the claws and teeth of the victims that his BloodClan members killed, he only ever killed three actual cats! He killed Tigerstar as Firestar asked him to, and after that when BloodClan wanted to live in the forest Firestar was all like “nO!” and the four Clans came together and attacked BloodClan. Scourge may have killed Firestar once but he was defending himself. Would you just let Firestar just attack you? Or would you fight back! I would fight back.
Coming to an end, I don’t know if we did him justice or just stated facts that people already knew, even if that’s all we did we still made you realize how he became the way he is and how he isn’t a “villain” as you kittypets say.
We’ll submit the next article of “Misunderstood Villains” once this one is posted, thank you for reading!
