Hello BlogClan!!! Violetcreek here, your friendly neighborhood warrior cats fan, who is ready (and able) to rant about my opinion. By the time this comes out, Halloween will have passed, but I am writing this on Halloween so it counts (Lol).
Now let’s get into the actual article! If you’re reading this, you have definitely heard about the big bad beasties of this amazing series. Tigerstar, Brokenstar, Scourge, Sol, Hawkfrost, and THe iMpoStER!! But there are many villains who have been waiting in the wings, getting a footnote in the story. Not the big bad beasties, but the teeny tiny terrors. And I’m going to talk about them. Here. We. Go.

(Extreme spoilers ahead if you have not read Dawn of the Clans!)

The Dreaded: TOM
Tom was featured in the prequel series ‘Dawn of the Clans’. He is a kittypet who resides at the twoleg nest The Turtle Tail temporarily lives in. It was later found out that Tom was abusing Turtle Tail so that she got pregnant with his kits. Afterword, Turtle Tail comes home, gives birth to and cares for her three new children. But trouble was not over for Turtle Tail. In a later book, Tom steals her kits and brings them to his twoleg nest. When she tries to steal them back, she ends up dying. Later, Gray Wing successfully takes them back to the warrior camp, but Turtle Tail does not join them.

I absolutely hate Tom!!! Everything he has done has been evil. Even if he had never done anything to meet his kits, abusing Turtle Tail is enough for me to punch the wall and scream: “OFF WITH HIS HEAD!!” Let me say (before everyone assumes I’m a psychopath) that Turtle Tail is my favorite character in Dawn of The Clans. She was my fav from the very beginning. And having Tom do this to her makes me want to chop of his head. It’s common sense when you think about it in a certain way. So you can assume that when I read Turtle Tail had died trying to get her kits back from Tom, I was out for bloody murder. I put the book down and paced around my room for three hours. I didn’t cry, but I felt like I was gonna throw up. *Sigh*

The Conclusion:
Tom is so evil. And he’s never recognized, and never hated enough. Sure, Tigerstar and THe iMpoStER are worse villains and have done worse things, but Tom is on another level. So that’s why I have brought my arrogant opinion to you, to try and get other people to see Tom for who he really is. AND IT’S NOT GOOD. Thanks, and good night!

    Awesome article, Violetcreek! I agree – Tom is absolutely the worst! Your article was so entertaining and dramatic regarding language – perfect for Halloween – and I really enjoyed reading your introduction and body paragraphs. Amazing job! 😀

  • Amazing article Violetcreek! I totally agree. I haven’t read DOTC yet but he sounds awful.
    He forced somecat to have kits with him. Then he steals them and his “mate” dies trying to get them back!? I’m sorry but that is not okay.
