~~~ ☾ ShadowClan ☾ ~~~
The Dark Heart of the Forest!
Made by Moonblazer!!!
|☾ ☼ ϟ ≈ ☁|
Greetings. I am Cedarstar. You must be brave indeed, to approach the territory of ShadowClan. Few are welcome here in our world of secrets and darkness. We are a Clan of cunning and cleverness, a Clan well suited to the shadows and the cold north wind. No other Clan can walk the paths of night like we do. Other Clans may be faster or stronger, but we are the most dangerous warriors: fierce, proud, and independent. We are ruthlessly willing to do what it takes to protect our great Clan. There won't be any softhearted alliances here! ShadowClan will always be the dark heart of the forest!
The Next Gathering is...The 17th of each month
The Medicine Cat Gathering is...Last day of each month
Season...Whatever season it is in RL
Newest on top
- Smokestorm and Snakesong are now mates!
Just a head's up: I (Moonpower) will not be on much from Friday, June 5th, to Thursday, June 11th! I will be on vacation with my family. I don't know how my service will be, but I'll try to keep an eye on the Rp from my phone. Firebelly will lead ShadowClan in my absence.
Kinkfire is Slatepaw's mentor!
Snowdance headed to the Moonstone for the half-moon medicine cat gathering! Opalmist remained behind to look after the wounded.
Thistlestalk, Poppyflame, and Stormfury have returned from warning WindClan! They are unharmed and were able to get to WindClan in time to warn them of the flames. WindClan has suffered losses, but Swiftstar sent the message that they're in ShadowClan's debt!
Talltalon and Ravenpaw have returned!!! In the middle of rebuilding the camp, Ravenpaw burst through the camp entrance, wildly and frantically looking for her siblings: Sunpaw and Sproutpaw. It was Cedarstar that finally got her to calm down and Talltalon explained to the Clan that when the twolegs took them, they took them far away and it was thanks to help of a well groomed cat in the twoleggedplace that they were able to make it home at all! Everyone is grateful for the warrior's and apprentice's return; however, Cedarstar had the unfortunate role of telling Ravenpaw that Sproutpaw didn't survive the fire (when in reality their rper was deleted due to inactivity). Ravenpaw didn't take it well. She lashed out at Starrylight and Cedarstar who were only trying to console and give her time to rest and grieve and then she ran away.
Everyone is to work together on rebuilding the camp! While Cedarstar recovers from his wounds, Cloudscar has been heading the recovering! Oakstalk and Goldberry are to take patrols out to look for materials to rebuild the camp with! Frogleap and Dustrose are to head hunting patrols! Everyone needs to help where they can!
Flintclaw returned to Fourtrees from ShadowClan's territory! Ashrock, Shortcloud, and Lynxdapple remained behind to start cleaning up the camp. Flintclaw reported to Cedarstar that the territory was safe and Cedarstar called the Clan together! Bumbleskip, Kestrelgaze, and Brittlefoot will remain at Fourtrees to wait for the patrols still in SkyClan, RiverClan, and WindClan territories, and hold the Fourtrees territory as ShadowClan's, but everyone else is to follow Cedarstar back to camp! Apprentices are to help queens with kits and Snowdance and Opalmist with herbs and warriors are walk with the elders! Once back at camp, Cedarstar and Cloudscar will organize hunting patrols and repair units!
Back at Fourtrees, Mouseclaw presented Turkeykit to Cloudscar, wanting to take the kit directly to Cedarstar, but Cedarstar had been resting. For the time being, Turkeykit was brought to Spiderfang and Leaffrost at the makeshift nursery where Turkeykit got to meet the other kits and ask some questions about the Clan. When Cedarstar woke, Mouseclaw brought Turkeykit before him and admitted the little kit's history and that he and Spiderfang were willing to care for Turkeykit. Cedarstar spoke of the warrior code and how they couldn't turn down a kit in need. Cedarstar decreed that Mouseclaw and Spiderfang can look after Turkeykit; however, if Turkeykit ever chooses to leave ShadowClan after we've nourished him, he will not be allowed back.
While on the patrol to scout the territory, Mouseclaw and Ashrock discovered a little kit in the ashes of the pines. The kit is only four moons old and severely malnourished. The kit claimed to be Turkeykit, a former kittypet was told to come to the Clans by his mother in order to avoid be sold to other twolegs. Mouseclaw immediately wanted to take the kit to the Clan at Fourtrees, Lynxdapple and Flintclaw agreeing with him. Ashrock protested saying they should drop the kit off at ThunderClan or with one of the kittypets in the twoleggedplace, but everyone else in the patrol shot him down. Mouseclaw took Turkeykit straight back to Fourtrees while the rest of the patrol continued to scout the territory.
As dawn rose the day after the Great Fire, Cedarstar and Cloudscar discussed the Clan's next steps. At Cedarstar's order, Cloudscar called Flintclaw to lead Shortcloud, Ashrock, Lynxdapple, and Mouseclaw on a patrol to scout the territory and determine if it was safe for ShadowClan to return to it.
Stormcloud and Kinkfire are now mates!!
Stonesong and Ashrock got into a fight! Ashrock was running himself ragged trying to hunt for the Clan, but Stonesong finally got him to rest by knocking some sense into him, literally! So exhausted, Ashrock couldn't fight back. He finally gave in when Stonesong pinned him. Back with the Clan, Ashrock had a bit of an emotional moment, but Stonesong was able to calm him down.
Mothpaw's mentor is Pinefeather!
Even amidst the tragedy, the ShadowClan survives! Burningpaw, Vixenpaw, and Hazelpaw have earned their warrior names! Burningpaw is now Burninghope! Vixenpaw is now Vixenflame and Hazelpaw is now Hazelblaze! In addition to new warriors, the Clan also has two new apprentices! Strikepaw's mentor is Ravenflight while Rowanpaw's mentor is Sootwhisker! Russetshade has moved out of the nursery.
Cedarstar announced that the Clan will remain at Fourtrees until the fire dies out of their territory. When they return to ShadowClan, everyone will need to work together to rebuild the camp! Prey will be hard to find, but perhaps the Clan could get help from Gregory and Shimmer like they did during leaf-bare! If not, patrols will have to hunt beyond ShadowClan's borders to find prey for the Clan. Cloudscar will be in charge of setting up patrols to scout the territory when the flames begin to recede so we know when its safe to go back!
Due to inactivity, downtherabbithole and frostwind have been deleted! Their characters Pepperpaw, Sproutpaw, and Yarrowblossom have been killed off. Jykell has been added to the inactive list!
Tumblefoot and Burningpaw returned to Fourtrees with a vulture! In these dark times, we have the peace of mind knowing that the Clan won't go hungry tonight thanks to their catch!
Cloudscar has made an announcement! Though the Clan has much to mourn and with Cedarstar recovering from his wounds, Cloudscar announced that with the fire spreading, the other Clans needed to be warned. It was too late to warn ThunderClan, the embers of the fire raging through ThunderClan's trees, but the other Clans could still make it out. Cliffheart and Cardinalblaze were ordered to go warn SkyClan, Pinefeather and Moonpetal are to go warn RiverClan, and Thistlestalk, Stormfury, and Poppyflame will warn WindClan. All messengers are to be careful and report back to Fourtrees as soon as they can. If the fire is too dangerous to be able to reach the other Clans, then the messengers are to give up the mission. At Fourtrees, apprentices should be gathering moss and other bedding for the kits, queens, and elders. Warriors are to assist Snowdance and Opalmist in searching for herbs and hunt to the best of their abilities. Not much prey has been gathered, the Clan can't go hungry!
Ashrock was breaking the news of Owlshadow's death to Hiddendream, Eaglesight, Smokestorm, and Songbreeze. Unfortunately, Ashrock is not the most sympathetic cat in the Clan. The four kits of Owlshadow were taking it hard and Ashrock snapped at them to get over it. At least they had what time they did with Owlshadow when others (like himself) didn't even know their mothers. Ashrock stated that all the 17 cats that were lost to the blaze would never be forgotten, Owlshadow's kits should be helping the Clan, not moping around. Safe to say, Ashrock royally ticked off Hiddendream, Eaglesight, and Smokestorm--Songbreeze panicking after getting yelled at. An argument broke out, but Lionscorch calmed it. Hiddendream, Eaglesight, Smokestorm, and Songbreeze remained in each other's comfort while Ashrock stalked off to hunt once again. Tigerfury followed after Ashrock and the two got into a heated argument. Later, Coalpaw noticed his mentor (Ashrock) patrolling alone and tried to talk to him. Ashrock ended up pushing Coalpaw away. Later, Falcontalon tried talking some sense into Ashrock, but Ashrock wouldn't open up--stubborn furball. This began on page 90 of Fourtrees if you wish to read it over.
The Clan is slowly recovering at Fourtrees, while the territory still burns. Cedarstar woke up, but is under orders from Snowdance to rest. With Roseleaf's death, Pearlkit is motherless and needs a surrogate queen for milk. Falcontalon begged Songbreeze for her help even though Songbreeze just lost her two kits. Songbreeze agreed, deciding that her two kits could never be replaced, but she would love Pearlkit as her own.
Kestrelgaze's patrol of Eaglesight reported the the fire is spreading into ThunderClan territory, but has yet to come in the direction of Fourtrees. Warriors are to keep a lookout.
Goldberry's patrol of Smokestorm and Dustrose reported that the fire hasn't crossed into WindClan territory yet. Pinefeather's patrol ended up bringing back prey for the Clan to eat. Opalmist and Snowdance are working tirelessly to treat the wounded.
Honeypaw and Oakstalk had a heart to heart after what happened to them in the flames. Honeypaw felt guilty that Oakstalk wasted time saving him instead of Ribbindance, Oakstalk's mate. Oakstalk assured his apprentice that as his apprentice, Honeypaw was Oakstalk's responsibility. It was Oakstalk's decision to go out looking for Lynxdapple and Morningpaw instead of being beside his mate. So, Oakstalk felt that Ribbondance's death was his fault. The mentor and apprentice are actually starting to get along and agreed to a fresh start!
Stonesong admitted her feelings for Ashrock while marking Fourtrees with ShadowClan scent. Ashrock being...well Ashrock, he didn't take it too kindly, telling her that she was wasting her time. With how much the Clan hated him, they'd reject her for loving him. Upset by his response, Stonesong stormed off. Kinkfire came up to Ashrock and called him an idiot.
Pinefeather egged Ashrock when she noticed him trying to join a patrol. She asked if he was trying to show up Cedarstar again and wasn't shy of reminding him of how he fed Cedarstar poppy seeds. The two departed from of each with furs raised.
At Fourtrees the Clan tried to recover. With Cedarstar injured and unconscious from exhaustion and burns, Closesky took over. The elder ordered patrols out: Pinefeather took out a hunting patrol, Ashrock took some cats to cover Fourtrees with ShadowClan scent to make sure the other Clans stayed away. Kestrelgaze and Goldberry took separate patrols to scout the fire. Fourtrees was turned into a makeshift camp and a list of missing cats was made. Some warriors in the Clan were able to admit the fate of those they saw perish. Others, no one knew their fate.
Cedarstar and Ashrock began arguing in the middle of camp! Cedarstar's intent was to lift Ashrock's punishment; however, Ashrock hardly let the leader get a word in. In the middle of the argument, a scent caught Cedarstar's nose and he silenced Ashrock with one bark to investigate further. Cedarstar jumped up on Clanrock and his fears were confirmed by Tumblefoot and Goldberry barging through the camp entrance. Tumblefoot was shouting warning of a fire and Goldberry explained that a twoleg contraption burst into flames and the fire was spreading quickly across the Carrionplace where they had been hunting. The fire was sweeping through the territory, ShadowClan needed to evacuate the camp. Cedarstar quickly began barking orders to get cats out. Cinderspeck, Redspark, and Sandflower were selected for a patrol to scout the fire's spread. Scorchfire, Icefire, Oakstalk, Honeypaw, Vixenpaw, and Burningpaw volunteered to head out into the territory to search for and warn the patrols still out. All cats are to evacuate to Fourtrees by use of the tunnel underneath the Thunderpath marking ThunderClan's border.
Cloudscar led the first group to Fourtrees and assisted cats in crossing the Thunderpath of ThunderClan's territory, keeping an eye for ThunderClan patrols.
Ashrock, Coalpaw, Hollowpool, Smokestorm, and Frogleap assisted Snowdance and Opalmist in saving ShadowClan herbs. Ashrock passed off his herbs to Smokestorm and Hollowpool to stay behind with Cedarstar. Snowdance got separated from the group on the way to Fourtrees. She got lost in the flames, but thankfully Burningpaw and Vixenpaw found her and were able to lead her safely to Fourtrees!
Queens and their mates made sure to get their kits out of camp, some warriors escorting them (Cliffheart, Cardinalblaze, Snakesong, and Lionscorch.)
Kestrelgaze and Houndthroat escorted the apprentices out of camp. Palepaw and Whorlpaw feared for their father, Cedarstar.
Stormcloud and Kinkfire assisted in getting the elder's out. Closesky was supporting Raggedthorn, but Raggedthorn suddenly collapsed, the smoke and haunted memories getting the best of him. They had to leave his body to the flames.
Owlshadow was making sure the apprentice den was clear when the den suddenly collapsed on her! She was trapped inside! Cedarstar and Ashrock tried to tear the brambles free and save her, but they weren't fast enough. Owlshadow died in the blaze. The same thing occurred to Mosspaw and Onyxtip when they were clearing the warrior's den! Cedarstar and Ashrock tried to free them, but the den erupted in flames and the two were killed!
On the way to Fourtrees, Roseleaf collapsed from breathing in too much smoke, Quailfrost and Tumblefoot tried to urge her on, but they weren't strong enough to carry her. Remembering Ashrock was still in camp, Tumblefoot retreated to get the stronger warrior's help. He found Cedarstar and Ashrock by a blazing apprentice den and begged for their help. However, it was too late. Roseleaf died from smoke inhalation and Quailfrost was curled up beside her, suffering the same fate as she refused to leave her mother's side. Ashrock took Tumblefoot to Fourtrees while Cedarstar went back into the blaze to make sure everyone got out.
While leading Tumblefoot out of the territory, Ashrock heard a cry for help. He scared Tumblefoot into continuing to Fourtrees and turned back to the blaze to find the cat that needed him. He ended up finding Stonesong trapped by the blaze and rescued her.
While escaping camp, Cottonfur was crushed by a falling tree branch, the impact killed her.
Marshsong was helping Ratmask carry Longkit and Lightkit to safety. However, Ratmask and Lightkit got blocked by falling, flaming brambles. Marshsong rushed back to help her brother clear a path and pulled her brother along when the path was clear. However, more branches fell from the pines above their heads. Marshsong shoved her brother out of the way to save him, and took the blow for herself. The impact killed her instantly and Ratmask was left with the two kits, staring at his sister's body in shock. Thankfully, Tigerfury was nearby. He was able to carry Longkit and lead Ratmask and Lightkit to the safety of Fourtrees.
Leopardshadow and Mistsong escaped together. Mistsong had collapsed from the smoke during their flight and Leopardshadow dragged her the rest of the way to Fourtrees. By then it was too late, Mistsong had died along the way.
Shortcloud got Brittlefoot to Fourtrees by following along the thunderpath, large red, screaming, and flashing monsters roared past them.
Ribbondance, with her leg injury and age, couldn't make it out of the fire! She died from smoke inhalation.
Foxshadow got separated from her group escaping the fire. When Ferretclaw realized this, he went back into the blaze to find her. Foxshadow had gotten trapped in the flames, but Ferretclaw saved her life. When a burning branch fell from the trees above, Ferretclaw shoved Foxshadow out of the way. The impact didn't kill him as the branch wasn't of the larger variety. It did, however, burn Ferretclaw's back. Foxshadow helped Ferretclaw out of the flames, the two saving each other.
Oakstalk and Honeypaw fought through the fire in attempt to locate the patrols that were out in it. They found Lynxdapple and Morningpaw stuck in the blaze and were able to guide the pair to safety. However, on the way to Fourtrees, Honeypaw got separated from the others. Oakstalk valiantly leaped back into the fire to go save his apprentice. The two made it to Fourtrees burned, but alive!
Cedarstar ended up finding Crowfur struggling through the flames. The ShadowClan leader did his best to get Crowfur to safety, but he wasn't fast enough. Smoke infiltrated Crowfur's lungs and he suffocated in Cedarstar's grasp. Feeling like a failure, Cedarstar had to leave Crowfur's body behind.
Icefire and Scorchfire were able to locate Littlemoon's patrol of Sootwhisker and Viperpool caught within the blaze. The two senior warriors started to lead the young cats to Fourtrees when a burning tree fell upon them. Scorchfire and Icefire were separated from Littlemoon, Sootwhisker, and Viperpool, fire blocking all their exits. The two senior warriors shouted for the others to go on and they began their walk in StarClan together.
Redspark got separated from the others in her patrol. She was struck by a falling tree branch and killed. Cedarstar came to her aid too late.
While sprinting out of the forest, Viperpool was hit by a falling tree, the impact killing him. Sootwhisker ran ahead to Fourtrees, but Littlemoon was lost in shock at what occurred. With Scorchfire and Icefire already not making it out, she was shocked numb with Viperpool's death. Thankfully, Cedarstar found her frozen in place. The ShadowClan leader was able to get her to Fourtrees.
At Fourtrees, Songbreeze started kitting early due to the stress. Her mate, Lionscorch, and her father, Cliffheart were with her and they were able to get help from Opalmist when the medicine cat made it out of the firestorm; however, Songbreeze's two kits, Heartkit and Shinekit, were stillborn.
Cedarstar was the last to arrive at Fourtrees, dragging Littlemoon behind him. Upon reaching Fourtrees, Cedarstar collapsed from exhaustion, burns all over his body.
Cedarstar and Snowdance argued in the middle of camp! Snowdance wants Ashrock out of her medicine den, believing the warrior's punishment has gone on long enough! Cedarstar, however, doesn't think his brother has learned his lesson for drugging him with poppy seeds, he was too stubborn to give his brother a second chance and too paranoid that Ashrock would try something like it again. Their argument ended with Cedarstar questioning Snowdance's advice and what she knew on what it meant to be a warrior. Snowdance stormed off to go gather herbs.
Roseleaf gave birth to Falcontalon's daughter: Pearlkit!

Talltalon and Ravenpaw have been taken by twolegs! While on a patrol with Sootwhisker and Houndthroat, the two got caught in a twoleg cage trap! Ravenpaw was lulled to the scents of food inside in and in an attempt to pull her back, Talltalon triggered the trap and both got caught inside! Sootwhisker tried to get them out, but twolegs appeared and took the mentor and apprentice away! Not knowing where Houndthroat went, Sootwhisker ran back to camp to warn the Clan. Cedarstar then had Sootwhisker lead him, Lynxdapple, and Scorchfire to the place where Talltalon and Ravenpaw were taken. On the way there, they ran into Houndthroat. The young warrior had tracked a frog away from the hunting patrol and hadn't realized what had happened.
Fishy has left the forums. Sunpaw's new mentor shall be Copperheart! dustbinni, Leafbeart1, and Littlecreek have been deleted due to inactivity!
It is a sad day in the Clan. Hazelpaw returned from a hunting patrol, dragging Oceanstorm's body. While out hunting, a tree limb snapped under the weight of the snow and landed on Oceanstorm. Hazelpaw bravely tried to dig her out, but it was too late. The Clan mourns.
Shadedpine and Eaglesight are now mates!!!
To celebrate the patrol's victory and the feast that ShadowClan will be sharing tonight, Cedarstar made Tumblepaw a warrior for his impressive catch! His warrior name is Tumblefoot!
Cedarstar and his patrol returned! They were wounded, but Cedarstar announced that they were victorious! When arriving to ThunderClan, the camp was being attacked by rogues! Without ShadowClan and WindClan, the ThunderClan cats would've lost their camp! The rogues were driven out and Lightningstar was returned to leadership when Shadeclaw admitted that he wasn't chosen by StarClan. Cedarstar and the patrol left ThunderClan afterwards, knowing that Lightningstar was in their debt.
Goldberry and Tumblepaw brought this huge vulture back to camp! Thanks to it and the prey from Gregory and Shimmer, the Clan won't go hungry tonight!
Cedarstar took Lionscorch, Shortcloud, Oakstalk, Shadedpine, and Stormfury with him to Fourtrees to assist Lightningstar in his take back of ThunderClan!
I'm changing up how I make apprentices into warriors! If you want your cat to be a warrior, they gotta earn it! I posted a notice about it on Page 615 please read it over! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
Cedarstar and his patrol returned from WindClan! He announced that originally he, Swiftstar, and Lightningstar planned, in three days time at Sunhigh, Cedarstar will lead a patrol of five volunteers to Fourtrees to meet up with Lightningstar and a WindClan patrol. With Shadestar's current mindset, none of the leaders anticipate a fight. Shadestar won't be expecting ShadowClan to support Lightningstar, so its believed that the patrol just needs to show up and look intimidating! It is preferred that the cats who volunteer are large and intimidating. However, after the three leaders came to this conclusion. Nettlefrost of WindClan reported to them that they met Ghostscreech of ThunderClan on the border. If Ghostscreech can be trusted, Shadeclaw will attack WindClan in two days time! Cedarstar will announce who is on the patrol soon.
The day after the Gathering, Cedarstar called the Clan together. He announced that after speaking with senior warriors last night and having time to think on it himself, he has decided to offer assistance to Lightningstar in chasing the Dark Forest out of ThunderClan. If Lightningstar accepts their help, Cedarstar will lead five volunteers into what battles or assistance Lightningstar requires. Cedarstar stated that he will be taking Sootwhisker and Lynxdapple with him to WindClan to discuss things with Swiftstar and Lightningstar. In the meantime, border and hunting patrols should be going out. Cloudscar will organize them.
After the gathering patrol returned, members of the clan sat together and talked about what happened and what could happen in the future. Cedarstar called the senior warriors together to discuss the news of the Dark Forest in ThunderClan and if they should get involved.

In a shadowy marsh on the other side of the Thunderpath live us, the ShadowClan warriors. We are the dark warriors of the forest, who always seem to be plotting something sinister - according to the other clans. Our territory is marshy, with stunted trees and bushes, and a cold wind always blowing. The camp is near the Carrionplace, the Twolegs' garbage dump, and we always have to beware of catching the rats' diseases. Our territory is covered in pine needles and we don't have the luxury of thick trees. Our camp is protected by brambles and the entrance is a tiny path. There is hardly any grass on our territory leaving the ground muddy and cool, sometimes it freezes in leaf-bare and can be quite cold. The leader's den is beneath the root of a big oak tree. The warriors' den is under a bramble bush. The den looks thorny on the outside, but inside, it's lined with pine needles and moss. There is a small boulder at the edge of the clearing, which serves as Clanrock, where the leader addresses the clan. Propped up next to Clanrock is another rock, and it creates a sheltered cave underneath. This cave is the medicine den, sick cats can rest in the ferns surrounding the boulder. There is another hollow shielded by a thorn bush. This is the nursery and the thorn bush offers great protection.
All the ShadowClan dens have a shallow dip in the ground, sheltered by tightly woven thorns and enclosed by the circle of brambles. The dens surround a clearing beneath pine trees, with the entrance to the camp at once end and a large lichen-covered rock, known as the Clanrock, at the other. ShadowClan Camp: A dark, well-concealed hollow, the camp is hidden deep in the shadows and is surrounded by brambles as prickly and fierce as the hearts of the ShadowClan warrors.
Carrionplace: Yuck! Smell that? This is an evil place where rats and disease lurk.
Thunderpath: The ability of ShadowClan to move freely across the most feared border of the Thunderpath has enhanced our reputation for mysterious strength and invincibility. The tunnel underneath the ThunderClan on ThunderClan's territory belongs to ShadowClan along with with the territory that leads to fourtrees from the tunnel. There is also a tunnel under the Thunderpath that is WindClan's border. The tunnel must be checked often just in case WindClan preystealers have crossed into our territory.
Burnt Sycamore: An ancient tree destroyed by lightning many moons ago. Apprentices are often trained here to hunt at night and stalk noiselessly though the undergrowth.
RP Rules are found on the Joining Page please follow them for all our sakes!

~~ShadowClan Attributes and Trivia~~
- Tigerstar must have seemed like the cat who would lead ShadowClan back to the days when they were feared and respected throughout the forest. (From Cats of the Clans)
- Blackstar never harks back to the days when ShadowClan won every battle, when it looked as if they really would take over the whole forest and make the other clans serve them.ShadowClan warriors are proud and fight well. (From Cats of the Clans)
- Their territory is the least rich in prey - no rivers running with fish, burrows full of rabbits, or leafy trees hiding songbirds and squirrels. They share their territory with lizards and frogs, and rats that feed on Twoleg waste in Carrionplace.
- If the other clans fear them, perhaps it is because ShadowClan is an enemy no cat would wish to have.
- Sometimes it even seems that StarClan shares the forest Clans' fears;...ShadowClan will have to battle for a long time yet against the better-favored Clans. Ok so this makes it look like ShadowClan is StarClan's least favorite...Taken from Cats of the Clans
- ShadowClan cats hunt by night better than other Clan cats and are most skilled at skulking unseen throughout the undergrowth.
- It is said that the cold north wind that blows across the ShadowClan territory chills their hears and makes them suspicious and untrusting.
- Shadowstar was the first leader to lose all her lives. She was a strategist, ferociously independent, and untrusting of clanmates.
- Pebbleheart, future medicine cat of ShadowClan discovered that the carrionplace is the source of infection for the Carrion Place disease.
- ShadowClan's dark reputation has been earned over the years by an unfortunate run of corrupted leaders, twisted minds, and bitter plots.
- They are proud, loyal, defensive, and slightly arrogant; often seem to be misunderstood and portrayed by the other Clans as battle-hungry, aggressive, ambitious, and greedy for more territory.
- ShadowClan tends to hunt on ThunderClan territory through leaf-bare and because they believe ThunderClan is too busy with RiverClan, to notice.
- Kittypets tend to stray into ShadowClan territory.
Apprentices who are further along in their training will taken as a group to the Burnt Sycamore by one or two mentors to learn the Night Ambush, ShadowClan's special technique.
As far as I know the books don't say anything unique for ShadowClan when leaders call the clan together so I just say: "Let all cats old enough to STALK their own prey gather beneath Clanrock for a meeting!" or some variation of it.
