21 June, 2012 - Warriors Wiki is now six years old. It's been a very eventful year, we've gained a lot of conscientious, enterprising staff members. We've gained the chat which has become a learning ground for many of our newer members. We've also got a new content project. We've had our setbacks, but we've risen above them, and I hope we will continue to do so in the years to come. Lightningtalk, 07:02, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
Starting out seasons after the events of The Darkest Hour, things are relatively peaceful within the Clans. Firestar, leader of ThunderClan, has had kits with his mate, Sandstorm, naming them Squirrelpaw and Leafpaw. Bramblepaw has become a warrior by the name of Brambleclaw and his sister, Tawnypelt joins him in the ranks of warrior, still residing in ShadowClan. Graystripe's kits have become Feathertail and Stormfur, still living in their mother's Clan, RiverClan.
All is well, for now. However, a prophecy causes unrest in StarClan, home of the ancestors of the living Clan cats. The forest is in danger, and StarClan must pick one cat from each Clan to travel in order to find out how to save the Clans. After meeting in StarClan, those four cats are chosen. Brambleclaw of ThunderClan, Feathertail of RiverClan, Tawnypelt of ShadowClan, and Crowpaw, an apprentice from WindClan. Accompanying them are Stormfur and Squirrelpaw, and the six cats travel to a place where the water drowns the sun.
Meanwhile, Twolegs are destroying the forest, tree by tree, and prey is getting scarcer by the day. After the disappearance of the six questing cats, tensions are even higher. Their leaders can only hope the cats return, safe and sound.
TigerClan was an ancient Clan that supposedly lived in the forest in the years before the modern Clans. It, along with LionClan and LeopardClan formed the three Great Clans. Modern TigerClan, formed by Tigerstar was inspired by this ancient Clan. TigerClan was composed completely of tigers: huge cats with flame-colored pelts crossed by jet-black stripes. They were amazing night hunters and the darkness of night was said to reside in their souls. They were first mention in Into the Wild, when Lionheart quizzed Graypaw, Firepaw, and an unnamed ShadowClan apprentice over their mythology. It is believed by the Clan cats that they inherit their ability to hunt at night from the tigers. They were mentioned again in Secrets of the Clans in the myth "How TigerClan Got Their Stripes" when a young TigerClan warrior by the name of Thorntooth is said to have been jealous of the spotted and maned LeopardClan and LionClan respectively, as tigers were simply orange at the time. His jealously lead him to steal kits and prey from the other Clans and TigerClan was punished by only being allowed to hunt at night, where they developed dark black stripes. In "How LeopardClan Won the River" Shadestar from TigerClan along with Goldenstar from LionClan would allow LeopardClan rights to the river if they could kill a boar in their territories. When Fleetfoot manages to slay it they both agree to give LeopardClan the river.
Oakheart is a sleek, muscular, thick-furred, reddish-brown tom with amber eyes. He is born to Rainflower and Shellheart of RiverClan during a thunderstorm that flooded the camp. His brother, Stormkit, is his only littermate, though he is half-brothers with an unnamed kit.
About a moon later, Oakkit and Stormkit venture out of the RiverClan camp and run into Goosefeather. The siblings flee from the ThunderClanmedicine cat, but Stormkit shatters his jaw. After this, Oakkit is seen to be supportive of his brother through his recovery and renaming to Crookedkit, despite their mother's obvious favoritism toward her uninjured son. Oakkit is made an apprentice, Oakpaw, during this time and his mentor is his father, Shellheart, as requested by Rainflower.
Oakpaw is made a warrior after saving a patrol from a dog. Rather unusually for a young warrior, he addresses all four of the Clans at a Gathering soon after, and is given Loudpaw as an apprentice a little while after. He meets Bluefur at Sunningrocks eventually, and the two have a brief affair, meeting for one night at Fourtrees before breaking off their relationship. Bluefur soon gives birth to their kits, Mosskit, Mistykit, and Stonekit. At first, Bluefur chooses to raise the half-Clan kits as ThunderClan, but due to the rising threat that Thistleclaw was posing to her Clan, Bluefur brings the three kits to RiverClan, although Mosskit dies on the journey. Oakheart tells his then-leader brother, Crookedstar, that he had found the kits abandoned by a rogue, but the tom soon learns their true heritage.
Although Crookedstar and Oakheart had often promised as kits that whoever was made leader would choose the other as deputy, he was not made deputy of RiverClan until after Crookedstar's first deputy, Timberfur. By this time, however, Oakheart had mostly lost the ambition to become leader he had had as a kit.
Oakheart dies right before Rusty's arrival to the Clans, being killed by a rockslide in a battle with ThunderClan over Sunningrocks while fighting the ThunderClan deputy, Redtail. However, Tigerclaw claims to have killed him in revenge for the death of Redtail to cover up his murder of the ThunderClan deputy. He posthumously becomes a driving force in Fireheart's struggle to out Tigerclaw's actions, which eventually leads to Bluestar revealing that she had been his mate.
He makes several appearances in StarClan, including being the one to chose Feathertail as the RiverClan representative on the journey to find midnight. He also gives his daughter, Mistystar, a life of courage to follow her heart in her leadership ceremony.
