Snowthunder lists their favourite female characters from the series.
Hiya! Snowy back with another one! As you read in the title, I’ll be counting down my favorite She-cats in the Warriors series.
I already know I’m going to get a lot of backlash for this one, but we’re all entitled to our opinions. I am a strong Mapleshade lover. I do believe she was an awesome character, a compelling villain, and yes, she did deserve her fate. (Another article on that soon) I think Mapleshade is overall a very powerful and cool character, without whom the series would be forever changed.
As far as I’m concerned, Ivypool is one of the best cats still alive. (I’ve only read up to the first AVoS, so bear with me) Her character was very well thought out, her rivalry and jealousy of Dovewing I found to be an incredible story arc, her training in the Dark Forest made for a wonderful plot device, her overall character was absolutely amazing and *breathes* I hope we get an Ivystar in series 8.
Here we go, another controversial character. I personally found Hollyleaf’s character to be very magnetic. Unlike a large portion of the fandom, I thought her obsession with the Warrior Code when she was young was a breath of fresh air, as we got to see a different view of Clan life. Her whole murdering-Ashfur-and-then-almost-her-mother-and-exposing-the-secret-anyway was a strange but kind of fun piece of storytelling. Her return in OotS was completely iconic, and teaching ThunderClan to fight underground with Brightheart was a turning point in the battle with WindClan.
4. Turtle Tail
Alright! Heading back in time to my personal favorite arc, DotC, we have the lovable and bubbly Turtle Tail, who would never hurt anyone and only has eyes for Grey Wing. Despite her crush completely forgetting she exists for three books, she finally gets to be at Grey Wing’s side. She becomes expectant of Tom’s kits, and runs away back to the Clans, where Grey Wing helps her recover from kittypet life. The whole time, she knows her heart belonged to him, and her loyalty never falters as the books continue, and when she died rescuing her kits from their father, I cried sooo hard.
Anyone who has read Crookstar’s Promise can agree that Willowbreeze was an incredibly kind cat who put everything else before herself just to make sure they were
