Dark Forest Battle

Posted by IvyStorm on July 12, 2010 at 5:57 PM

      The Place of No Stars ( known as the Dark Forest) is the opposite of StarClan: it is a place where cats that have committed  crimes against their Clans and against the warrior code go when they die., cats who commit crimes but believe they are following the Warrior Code  can usually join the ranks of StarClan instead (like Mudclaw).

 

In the Omen of the Stars

 

SeriesThe Fourth Apprentice

When Jayfeather goes searching for Poppyfrost and finds her at the Moonpool, they are soon confronted by Breezepelt, who attacks them. He is helped by a Dark Forest cat who appears, although Jayfeather does not know who it is. He is helpless against them, until Honeyfern appears from StarClan to save him, and she fights them both off.

Later, at Poppyfrost's kitting, Tigerstar, Hawkfrost, and the Dark Forest cat (later revealed to be Brokenstar) appear and look at the kits. Jayfeather and Lionblaze tell them that they will never have the kits. The spirits disappear, but Jayfeather and Lionblaze grow worried that the Dark Forest is recruiting new cats, like Breezepelt, and perhaps Tigerheart, and maybe the Dark Forest is even planning a war on StarClan.

 

Fading Echoes

In the prologue, Tigerstar, Hawkfrost, Brokenstar, Darkstripe, and Breezepelt are all practicing battle moves.

Later, Hawkfrost appears to Ivypaw in a field in a dream of hers. He casually offers to train her so she will be as good at hunting as Dovepaw, and she accepts. She believes him to be a StarClan cat, so she continues to let him train her.

Jayfeather, Spottedleaf, and Yellowfang later visit the Place of No Stars in search of answers. Yellowfang is too overcome with nervousness when she sees Brokenstar, so she goes back to StarClan. Spottedleaf and Jayfeather stay, and witness fierce battle training between Darkstripe, and two other Dark Forest cats, Snowtuft and Shredtail, in which Shredtail is commanded to slash open Snowtuft's belly. Jayfeather is angered by the cruelty, but is powerless to stop it.

Then, Hawkfrost finally takes Ivypaw to the Dark Forest itself, and introduces her to the rest of the cats. She is nervous when meeting Tigerstar, as she has heard tales of his wickedness, but he convinces her that he didn't mean any harm, and was cruelly banished from ThunderClan for mere ambition. He then tells her that ShadowClan is supposedly planning to attack ThunderClan, and that she must convince Firestar to attack them first to protect their territory, which she does.

I've noticed that one cat who isn't paid much attention to from each family is a dark forest recruit but Molepaw or Cherrypaw don't become dark forest recruits, maybe because its too near the battle

LOL: YOU FORGOT SPARROWFEATHER!!!

I can't believe they got Ivypool to beleive Tigerstar! She should have investigated the problem first and THEN warn Firestar. Tigerstar's way had no sense, even if ShadowClan really WAS attacking. Anyways, I can't wait for Sign of the Moon, it's almost out! And December 8th the 6th book comes out, I'm almost positive. I'm too lazy to go to Warrior Cats Wiki but it says it there... maybe not the 6th one but it's there.
