This is the up-to-date history of the Clans. This also includes information about who was important in the Clans before the roleplay 'begins', just in case it is necessary to include this information in character bios. History is subject to change as new ranking cats come and deaths occur.
Jaggedstar: a previous leader of NorthClan, died shortly before the beginning of Midnight Strike. His last life was lost when he went too far into the mountains, and slipped, falling off a cliff and vanished into a ravine. His body was never recovered, but according to StarClan he is undoubtably dead. He was a cold-hearted leader, too daring, and had an inflated ego. He had personal problems with WestClan, and as such he often liked to war with them.
Pebblestar: once the leader of NorthClan, but vanished under mysterious circumstances. She had barely been leader for more than a couple moons before this occurrence. It is unknown what happened to her. She was known for being protective and caring.
Foglight: Jaggedstar's first deputy. He was best friends with Jaggedstar ever since they were apprentices, so naturally he was first in line to be chosen as deputy. He was killed in a battle with WestClan, and as such Jaggedstar declared them the eternal enemies of NorthClan. He was known for being good-hearted, but somewhat naive.
Hollyshade: The second deputy of NorthClan, prior to the current leader of the Clan. She was the mentor to the current deputy of NorthClan. She was killed in a battle with feral rogue raiders who tried to steal prey from NorthClan. She was known for being level-headed, and strong-willed.
Snowflower: the first deputy of Scatterstar. She was known for being patient and kind. She was not the deputy of NorthClan for long before she vanished, like many others.
Blackstorm: the second deputy of Scatterstar. He was known for being strict, a suck-up and not very likable. He drowned in the Ice River in an accident along with Bluestripe.
Prior medicine cats:
Truefaith: the previous medicine cat of NorthClan. Died due to an unfortunate heart condition. Was very old when he died, and used to like to ramble about things. He was the medicine cat throughout Jaggedstar's reign, and even partially throughout the reign of the leader before Jaggedstar. He was known for being scatter-brained, but kind-hearted.
Flamespirit: the medicine cat after Truefaith. He served his Clan under the leadership of Scatterstar, but was one day never heard from again, like many other cats of the Clans. He was known for being very serious, and taking his job seriously as well.
Mapleberry: the medicine cat who succeeded Flamespirit. She was known for being kind but sometimes unpredictable and irritable. She was presumably killed in the battle between EastClan and NorthClan.
Whitestar: a previous leader of EastClan, died moons before the beginning of Midnight Strike, and was replaced with the current leader. Her last life was taken when she was bitten by a rabid fox, and thus had to be killed with deathberries by the medicine cat in order to stop it from spreading. She was known for being tough and no-nonsense.
Hollowstar: a former leader of EastClan. Vanished under mysterious circumstances. No one knows what happened to her, and no body was ever recovered. She was known for being meticulous, tough, and intimidating.
Ripplestar: former leader of EastClan. Was killed in the battle between EastClan and NorthClan by Fishbone and Poisonthorn. He was known for being laid-back and carefree, and respected by his Clan.
Roseheart: a deputy who came before the deputy who is now the current leader of EastClan. She was gravely wounded in battle, and soon died from her injuries. She was young, and hadn't been deputy for more than a couple moons. She was known for being sweet-natured, but weak.
Tigerflight: a deputy under the leadership of Ripplestar. He was not the deputy of his Clan for long before he went missing. He was presumed dead by his Clan, and a new deputy was appointed. He was known for being ambitious and strong.
Prior medicine cats:
Barleytooth: the medicine cat of EastClan before the current one. Was young when he died in the same battle with SouthClan that killed Roseheart, whilst trying to help some of the injured cats on the battle field. He was known for being generous, but somewhat solitary.
Brightstream: the medicine cat of EastClan after Barleytooth. She left the Clan in search of Hollowstar, only to come back later. She lost her rank as medicine cat, but she lived on to be a warrior in her Clan.
Wintersong: the medicine cat of EastClan after Brightstream's disappearance. She was never the apprentice of Brightstream, but StarClan appointed her to be the medicine cat in her absence. Soon after Brightstream returned, Wintersong stepped down from her position to become a warrior.
Kestrelclaw: the medicine cat after Wintersong, who was killed in the battle between EastClan and NorthClan. She was known for being kind and caring.
Montana: formerly a rogue, Montana worked his way through the ranks to become to the leader of SouthClan. He was not leader for long before his Clan rebelled against them, angry at having a rogue for a leader. He was killed during this rebellion, and the medicine cat appointed a new leader by StarClan's choice. Montana was known for being fair and strong, but these good attributes did not stop the prejudice of his Clan.
Zephyrstar: the 'chosen' leader of SouthClan, picked by Hawkeye, the medicine cat at the time after the rebellion. He was known for being clam and collected, and for having a somewhat childish side to him. He led his Clan for a long time before he disappeared, and was never seen again.
Redtooth: Montana's deputy who was also killed when the SouthClan rebellion occurred. He was killed for being a supporter of Montana. He had always been good friends with Montana, ever since the rogue arrived in the Clan, and it was feared that if he became leader he would continue to let outsiders into the Clan. He was known for being sarcastic, but loyal.
Prior medicine cats:
Hawkeye: formerly a warrior, Hawkeye found her calling in being a medicine cat shortly before Montana's rise to power. She always hated Montana, and did everything within her power to instigate a rebellion against him. The final straw was when she faked a sign from StarClan, which sent SouthClan into a frenzy, and caused them to finally end Montana's leadership by force. She then appointed a new leader, whom she claimed to be StarClan's choice. She was found dead the next day inside her den, the causes were unknown. She was known for being manipulative, vicious, and harsh.
Lonestar: the previous leader of WestClan, died a fairly long time before the beginning of Midnight Strike. He was swallowed alive by a giant snake in the swamp, while out on a hunting patrol. His death was predicted by the medicine cat at the time, in a sign from StarClan. He was known for being somewhat gloomy, and keeping to himself. He had a terrible fear of snakes.
Scarletstar: the rogue successor of Lonestar. She took over the Clan a few moons after Lonestar was killed, much to the mixed opinions of the members of the Clan. She was known for being prideful but level-headed. She vanished from WestClan, leaving her deputy to succeed her.
Damage: a former loner who refused to take on a Clan name. She was thought to be Lonestar's mate. She stepped down from deputy position after she found out that she was pregnant, presumably with his kits. It turned out that they were actually the kits of a NorthClan warrior, and it's suspected that Lonestar had Damage killed shortly afterwards out of jealousy. She was found dead near the tunnels that go between NorthClan and WestClan. She was known for being sly and smart.
Applewhisker: the next deputy appointed by Lonestar. She was gorgeous, and young. No one thought she had what it took to be deputy however, and they were right. She was found drowned in the swamp near the border, with her throat torn out and SouthClan scent on her body. She was known for being air-headed, cowardly, and rebellious.
Prior medicine cats:
Fastbrook: the medicine cat prior to Cardinaltail. He died of old age. He was known for being slow and sluggish, and somewhat lazy.
Cardinaltail: she was only the medicine cat of the Clan for about two moons before she was found mysteriously dead at the Standing Stones. It is still unkown to this day what happened to her. Not even her apprentice, the now medicine cat, seems to know what happened. No one knows if they're telling the truth or not. Her last words were reportedly, "The Monster strikes at midnight..."
