During a fire, Hawkpaw is forced to make a choice, and one that will shape his life for many moons to come.

Tigerclaw, the former deputy of ThunderClan, has just been exiled. He was confronted by Bluestar for attempted murder, and she eventually decides to banish him. Seething with rage, the dark tabby lashes out at her, saying that she's a poor excuse for a warrior. Tigerclaw then leaves alone, since no cat opts to come with him. He vows to get vengeance on ThunderClan, and on Fireheart. Tigerclaw treks around for food and shelter, and runs into the former ShadowClan cats once aligned with Brokenstar. Clawface offers him some prey, and the dark tabby accepts it. He immediately seems to take charge, sending Snag and Tangleburr on a hunting mission. Blackfoot asks about what happened to Fireheart, but Tigerclaw says no one will speak of the kittypet.
Tigerclaw says that they will move their camp closer to ShadowClan territory, so the cats prepare to leave. Some of the group are worried their former Clan will see them, but none voice these concerns. Tigerclaw soon finds a suitable living place in the form of a large hollow tree. Everyone sleeps, and the next morning, the dark tabby begins battle training. He starts to wonder what happened to Tangleburr and Blackfoot, who are on a hunting mission. Stumpytail chips in that they go to check on ShadowClan sometimes from afar. He notes that while they may not live with their former Clanmates anymore, they'll always be in their thoughts. Tigerclaw goes out to find Tangleburr and Blackfoot himself, and they explain themselves. They note that ShadowClan is weakened by illness, and Fernshade later confirms their words when he meets a patrol.
Tigerclaw has a dream, where he comes to the conclusion that he would need ShadowClan's help to destroy the ginger cat he longs for revenge upon. He meets with more ShadowClan cats the next day, and tells them he wants to help. They are distrustful, but agree to let them stock the ShadowClan fresh-kill pile. Tigerclaw and his cats are welcomed, but after some brief conversation, they depart. The dark tabby then goes searching for Mowgli, and finds the loner holed up in the Twolegplace. The tom agrees to serve Tigerclaw again, and they head back to the hollow tree.
Tigerclaw continues to help ShadowClan, and leads a hunting patrol into ThunderClan territory. They ambush Runningwind, Mousefur, and Thornpaw, killing the dusty-brown tom. The other two run off for help, and when they return, a battle ensues. At first, ShadowClan seems to be winning, but RiverClan comes in and turns the tide. Tigerclaw backs off, and every cat heads back to camp. The dark brown tabby has a dream from Mapleshade, telling him about his destiny. He believes her, and the next day, he and his cats are invited to join ShadowClan. Tigerclaw graciously accepts, and gives Snag and Mowgli the warrior names Jaggedtooth and Nightwhisper.
A quarter-moon after, Tigerclaw is awoken by the news that ThunderClan's forest is on fire. He goes over to their territory, worried for his kits, Bramblekit and Tawnykit. Tigerclaw sees his daughter and former mate, but his son is nowhere in sight. The former deputy panics, but finally is able to see Fireheart save Bramblekit off a burning branch. Soon after, Tigerclaw gains reputation in ShadowClan. Runningnose sees a sign of a tiger's claw, and declares that Tigerclaw will be their new leader. The Clan cheers, and he is content to hear cats call his new name.
A mentor is a warrior who, along with their regular tasks, trains an apprentice of their Clan the ways of the Clans and how to be a warrior. The mentor teaches them how to hunt, fight, and patrol borders; as well as the ways of the Warrior Code and their own Clan. The leader, and sometimes the deputy, decide on who the mentor of a apprentice will be. Warriors may request to apprentice a kit, but in general, cats are not allowed to mentor family.
In some cases, cats must delay their apprenticeship or pause their training. The most common reason is from injury, in which case the apprentice often ends up becoming a medicine cat.
Violet Dawn is a sleek, dark, stormy gray she-cat with black fur edging her paws and her wide, soft ears. She has a long, thick tail, a soft muzzle, and amber eyes. She is an Early Settler of ancient ThunderClan.
In Path of Stars, Violet is a rogue in Slash's camp, and she is first seen defying Slash in the middle of camp. She is given a scrawny piece of prey, and insists that they have more than enough for every cat. Slash says it's only fair, as she is the weakest hunter. He goes on to insist that if she became his mate, then she'd never go hungry. Violet seems appalled by the idea, and declines him before stalking away. Some of the cats head outside of camp, and the gray she-cat organizes for them to hunt near the Twolegplace. Red and Juniper seem worried that dogs will find them, but Violet points out that they can run faster. However, the dogs to find Red and chase him back to camp. He leads them to the other cats, and then runs away to save himself. Violet is horrified, and tries to tend to her injured friends when she finds out.
Violet and the others are split amongst the groups of cats in the forest, and the she-cat ends up in Thunder's camp by request. She works very hard to earn the respect and trust of her campmates by joining many hunting patrols and helping clear bedding in the mornings. Thunder and Violet begin to grow closer, and are often seen discreetly hanging around each other. Her compassionate nature allows her to convince the rest of the cats to let Ember have more time to fit into Thunder's group. He is a rogue from Slash's camp, as well, but doesn't seem to realize that he should fit in with their culture. Thunder admits his feelings to Violet soon after, and they are deeply in love with each other.
At a full-moon meeting, the cats formerly from Slash's camp are asked if they would like to change their names to be more like their campmates. Violet agrees to this proposition, and names herself Violet Dawn. Thunder purrs, saying that it's a lovely name. However, their moment is interrupted when Slash breaks into the meeting saying that he's after Slate and her kits. Thunder leaves to go and help, and Violet Dawn begs for him to return safely. He does return, and thinks of her the whole time he is away.
In Thunderstar's Echo, Violet Dawn is Thundertstar's mate and shares her den. The tom finds her standing in Cloud Spots' den, and asks her why she's there. She excitedly reveals to him that she's expecting his kits, and the leader is overjoyed. Thunderstar is worried about being a good father to them, but she comforts him, knowing he'll be as great as Gray Wing was to him when he was a kit. However, dogs begin to pose a threat to ThunderClan. They come into the camp one time, and Violet Dawn just barely is able to climb a tree to avoid them. Thunderstar and Lightning Tail decide to go fix the problem, and follow the dogs the Twolegplace. However, the deputy is killed in their first attempt when he saves his leader. Thunderstar is sad, but also very grateful because he's still alive to go back to his expecting mate. The ginger-and-white tom finds the problem and solves it, before heading back to camp. Many grieve for the loss of Lightning Tail, but are accepting of Owl Eyes as the new deputy.
