WindClan, SkyClan, MoorClan, RiverClan.
BloodClan, ThunderClan, MoonClan, FireClan.

FireClan, ThunderClan, StarClan, RiverClan.
MountainClan, RiverClan, TreeClan, The Tribe of Rushing Water.
Rusty, later known as Firestar, comes to the attention of Bluestar, the ThunderClan leader. He is:
A feral kitten whose colony has been destroyed by men.
An escapee from a research facility.
A “kittypet” who’s intrigued by Bluestar’s stories of Clan life.
A stray kitten.
An abandoned kitten.
Aside from a leader and deputy, each Clan has:
Warriors, shamans, and apprentices.
Warriors and queens. None of the cats lives long enough to become an elder.
Warriors, a medicine cat, apprentices, queens, and elders.
Warriors, queens, and medicine cats.
All 4 Clans pay homage to StarClan, a group of ancestral spirit-cats who:
All of these.
Join the earthly Clans “to battle the darkness that lasts forever.”
Give new Clan leaders their 9 lives. Speak in visions to the medicine cats.
Send signs and messages.
Yellowfang, the ThunderClan’s healer, is exiled from her original Clan because:
She opposes the Clan’s new leader.
She’s at odds with most of the cats in that Clan.
She is falsely accused of killing 2 kits.
She tries to stage a take-over.
She secretly took a mate, and medicine cats aren’t supposed to have mates.
Firestar eventually becomes leader of ThunderClan. He and his mate, Sandstorm, go on a quest to find a lost Clan called:
The medicine cats are well-versed in herbal lore. Much that lore comes from:
Nicholas Culpeper’s "Complete Herbal" (1653).
The "Old Farmer’s Almanac."
The writings of Dr. Edward Bach, who developed the Bach flower remedies.
Maud Grieve’s "A Modern Herbal" (1931).
Midnight helps ThunderClan in many instances. She is:
A badger with the gift of prophecy.
A prophetess cat.
A member of StarClan.
A time-traveling lynx.
A cat older than time.
A major theme in the series is:
Doing the right thing despite the odds. Firestar and his kin are very good at this.
Forbidden love — and not just Yellowfang’s. The warrior code is very strict.
Working for the greater good.
Faith in the unseen — i.e., StarClan.
Love lost. Clan members frequently lose mates, kits, comrades, etc.
