Was this string of leaders intended:
Pinestar – Tigerstar 1.0 – Bramblestar – Tigerstar 2.0

Or this possible leader string:
Bluestar – Mistystar – maybe Reedstar (Reedwhisker)
I just thought it was cool that we’re bringing back the olden days of leaders being decided by kin.


Firestar, thank you.

You forgot about Firestar………………………
But anyways, since Firestar is indeed Tigerclawstar’s brother-in-law, I guess it counts. But Reedwhisker’s too old to become a leader. Mistystar just die already.
But I personally think the leader should be Icewing or Sneezecloud. Because SNEEZESTAR.

I honestly think Sneezecloud is a disgusting name, that poor creature, it just reminds me of a cloud that comes out when you sneeze. Sneezecloud deserves better. And also, I meant a direct string of leaders, as in children of children of children, and so on. I think that’s what you were talking about 🙂

Some do. Runningnose is listed as an elder in some of the books and Mistystar ordered Mothwing to retire to the elders’ den after realizing Mothwing didn’t believe in StarClan.

Hi, I have a question that dates wayyyyy back to the book that started it all, Into the Wild. I was going through it and found something interesting. Tigerclaw claims that it was Oakheart who killed Redtail, but why would Bluestar believe that when Oakheart was her mate? She would at least question that. And if she has suspected Tigerclaw when Firepaw/star first came to her with what Ravenpaw had told him, then the series would have moved along a lot quicker. Maybe Bluestar wouldn’t have gone so… insane!


Firestar, thank you.

I’ve always wondered how Bluestar felt about Tigerstar after he claimed he killed Oakheart. That could be part of the reason why she wanted Lionheart as deputy. Also, Crystalpaw, maybe she wouldn’t have, but I think she still would’ve gone crazy. Maybe she would have just a bit earlier, but it is true that she wouldn’t have the shock of seeing him try to kill her, she would just have the shock of knowing there was a killer in the clan if she even believed Fireheart. Bluestar might believe that Oakheart killed Redtail because she hasn’t really known him since she had kits as a young warrior. He has probably changed, whereas Bluestar probably last talked to Redtail and saw that he was fine that morning. Buestar is more likely to believe that Oakheart killed Redtail than vice versa, but that’s just because the other option is so unlikely. Wow, this was a long reply!

Apparently, when Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovewing die, they will be their own selves, and not Jay’s Wing, Lion’s Roar, and Dove’s Wing. So what will happen to the spirits of JW, LR, and DW? And what happened to the real Jay’s Wing when Jayfeather went back to his own time? He just disappeared?

Half Moon is the daughter of Rising Moon. Tall Shadow and Moon Shadow are siblings. Moon Shadow’s son was named Sun Shadow(by his mother, Dewy Leaf, who vowed that his kits would never know his name. And then she goes and names one after him?).
My point is, names, at least in the ancient Tribe, seem to run in families. Could Broken Shadow be related to Tall-,Moon- and Sun Shadow?
Also, while I’m at it, if Sun Shadow had lived (why did he have to die?!?!) and become the next leader of ShadowClan, would he have been Sunstar or Shadowstar II?

  1. Short answer is it depends if your ThunderClan or not
  2. I think they usually last around 6 moons.
  3. It depends on how much they want children
  4. Probably senior warrior age which is uhhhhhhh
  5. I like to think 10 moons, because they are always described to have longer apprenticeships

The only relevant cat. They didn’t really think the readers needed to know all of this clan because the clan wasn’t even present until Fire and Ice.

  1. It depends, for all I know, one day ThunderClan can have 500 cats.
  2. As long as it takes for them to get gud.
  3. Depends on when they want to have the babies.
  4. I think its usually senior warriors who get picked, but Fireheart was just appointed because of plot convenience.
  5. When they get gud.

  1. There were probably around 20 total cats in each clan when the series started, but I think that number has at least doubled in ThunderClan and since they only list the relevant characters from the clans in the allegiances, there’s no real way of knowing and what’s the point of counting the cats in your clan anyway. So, forty or fifty by now I guess.
  2. Firestar and Graystripe’s apprenticeships were very short, maybe around four or five moons. If the clan needs more warriors fast, then they are allowed to make apprentices that age warriors because they need more warriors. I think the usual number of moons is usually seven or eight, which means they would be a little over a year old when they became warriors. The youngest cat to ever become a warrior was Badgerfang, but I don’t feel like talking about Brokenstar right now.
  3. It kind of depends how old the she-cats are. There are a number of factors that could go into deciding this. I have no idea how long cat pregnancy lasts, but a queen will probably not have become a queen right after they become a warrior because they shouldn’t be pregnant while they are apprentices (should I mention Willowpelt and Darkstripe?). Some cats, like Dustpelt and Ferncloud knew they wanted to become mates or at least Dustpelt knew when she was just a young apprentice. She’s an apprentice in The Darkest Hour and she’s a queen with her first litter being apprentices and her second litter being kits when we next really see her in Midnight. She must have been a queen at a pretty young age, vs somebody like Squirrelflight, who’s mate found her the most annoying little furball the world has ever known when they first knew each other, and it took them a while to patch things up after Ashfur and then after Jessie and then she finally got around to having kits four series after she was introduced or something. It really depends. Maybe the range is 15 moons at least if you’re not Willowpelt and really most of cat life after that. Think about Speckletail
  4. I think that Redtail was pretty young when he became deputy and you know that Firestar became deputy two books after he became a warrior. Bristlefrost wasn’t even allowed to be deputy because she hasn’t had an apprentice yet, but she was super young. Oh, and I think Redtail was young because he was in the same litter as Spottedleaf and Willowpelt. Some cats can be pretty old like Crowfeather or Whitestorm and most cats are kind of in the middle like Mistystar or Blackstar. Like some of the other questions, it really depends. I think the range is 20 moons or something all the way up to Whitestorm’s elderly age.
  5. Well, I stated that I thought usually cats are seven to eight moons old when they become warriors, and we know that medicine cat apprentice training takes a little longer than that. I’d guess about ten moons old when they become full medicine cats but are still listed as apprentice. Medicine cats can be pretty old when their mentor dies, though.

Wow, this was one long reply! Hope you read it and this wasn’t all for nothing.

Does Squirrelflight have a POV? If so, in which book? (besides Squirrelflight’s Hope)
Are Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf the only cats that have a POV in Power of Three?
Who all has POVs in the fourth and fifth series?

Sorry for all the questions, I just want to know for something I’m doing.

Squirrelflight had several POVs during the New Prophecy series, but I can’t tell you exactly which books because cats like Brambleclaw(star) also had POVs in the same books as well.

Yes Jay, Lion and Holly were the only ones

The POVs for the fourth mainstream series (Omen of the Stars) were Dovewing, Lionblaze, Jayfeather, Ivypool and Flametail
The POVs for the fifth mainstream series (A Vision of Shadows) were Alderheart, Violetshine and Twigbranch.
In the official warriors website, it says that the Dawn of the Clans series is the fifth series so I’ll just tell you their POVs anyway. The POVs were Thunder(star), Clear Sky (Skystar) and Gray Wing.

Squirrelflight has a POV in The New Prophecy! And also in the manga for Bramblestar’s Storm, and in Squirrelflight’s Hope, like you said.
Yes, Jayfeather, Hollyleaf, and Lionblaze are the only ones with POVS in Power of Three.
In the fourth series, Omen of the Stars, the POVS are Jayfeather, Lionblaze, Ivypool, Dovewing, and briefly Flametail.
In the fifth series, A Vision of Shadows, the POVS are Alderheart, Twigbranch, and Violetshine.
