Bluestar: The Legend
“Like fire, you will blaze through the forest. But beware, even the most powerful flames can be quenched by water.”
Very soon after, Bluepaw and her sister, Snowpaw, receive their Warrior names: Bluefur and Snowfur. Only a few days after their Warrior Ceremony, the clan leader, Pinestar, takes them to visit the Moonstone. Bluefur dreams about drowning in a fierce current of water and wonders what the prophecy had meant. One day, she finds an enemy Riverclan Warrior, Oakheart, sunning himself on Thunderclan territory. She makes him leave after a brief argument in which she fell into the stream, but finds she cannot stop thinking about him. Bluefur’s sister, Snowfur, announces that she’s expecting kits with Thistleclaw, a Thunderclan warrior who Bluefur is at constant odds with. Though displeased at her sister’s choice of mate, Bluefur is supportive of her. Eventually, Snowfur has a son named Whitekit. About a moon afterwards, Bluefur coaxes Snowfur out of the nursery for a walk. Only moments after they leave camp, Snowfur spots Shadowclan Warriors over the border and chases them onto the Thunderpath. The enemy warriors escape, but Snowfur is hit and killed by a Monster. After her sister’s death, Bluefur falls into another depression and neglects to care for Snowfur’s son, Whitekit. Some time afterwards, Sunfall, now Sunstar, talks to Bluefur and tells her to let go of the past. She becomes a bigger part of Whitekit’s life, and watches him grow up into a warrior named Whitestorm. Bluefur also mentors one of Whitestorm’s foster sisters, Frostfur. One night, Bluefur meets Oakheart at Fourtrees, breaking the Warrior Code, which states that cats from enemy clans cannot be mates or friends. They race to the top of one of the oaks, and she teaches him how to climb along the way. The next morning, they sadly part ways. About a moon later, one of Bluefur’s clanmates, Leopardfoot, notices that Bluefur is pregnant. This shocks Bluefur, as she hadn’t realized it. She doesn’t name a father, as the real father is Oakheart of Riverclan. Her clanmates assume that Thrushpelt, one of her close friends, is the father, since he was in love with her. He offers to say he is the father, and Bluefur agrees. Another moon passes, and Bluefur gives birth to three kits during leaf-bare: One tom, Stonekit, and two she-cats, Mistykit and Mosskit.
When the kits are a moon old, the current Thunderclan deputy at the time, Tawnyspots, begins to grow ill and it is apparent that there’s only a matter of time before he has to retire. Bluefur and Thistleclaw are the two primary choices to be chosen as the next deputy, but because of Bluefur’s kits, she cannot become deputy. She quickly realizes that she must make a heart wrenching decision: Give up her kits or let the bloodthirsty Thistleclaw become deputy instead. She sadly decides to give up her kits to save her clan. At the next Gathering, she meets Oakheart and tells him the situation. He agrees to meet her at Sunningrocks the next night. The night of the meeting, when everyone is asleep, she sneaks her kits out of camp. Along the way, the weather turns nasty, and the kits grow cold. She digs holes and carries the kits from hole to hold to try and keep them warm. When they grow tired, she stops and sleeps in one of the holes with them. After a brief sleep, she wakes up the kits, but Mosskit doesn’t get up. Bluefur hears her dead sister, Snowfur, telling her to let Mosskit go. She looks up to see Mosskit’s spirit walking away to Starclan with Snowfur, and her heart breaks. Eventually, she and her two remaining kits reach Sunningrocks. Oakheart is there to meet them, but is confused as to where Mosskit is. Bluefur sadly replies that she’s dead. This is the last time she and Oakheart speak to one another. After burying Mosskit’s body, she returns to camp, tears a hole in the nursery, and tells the clan that a fox took the kits. Eventually, she is chosen as the new deputy of Thunderclan. Her kits, Mistykit and Stonekit, are made into warriors: Mistyfoot and Stonefur. They have no recollection of their Thunderclan past. When Sunstar dies, she receives her nine lives and the name Bluestar. She appoints Redtail as her first deputy.
Some time passes, and while out on patrol one day, Bluestar spots a bright ginger Kittypet sitting on a fence. He is gazing out into the forest. The kittypet attempts to catch a bird, but fails. However, Bluestar sees promise in him. She returns to camp, and the Thunderclan Medicine Cat, Spottedleaf, tells her of a new prophecy:
“Fire alone can save our clan.”
Eventually, she returns to where the ginger Kittypet lives with a patrol. She sends an apprentice, Graypaw, to attack him. This is a test, as she wants to see how well the Kittypet handles himself. After a brief fight between Graypaw and the ginger tom, Bluestar and the rest of the patrol reveal themselves and she offers the Kittypet, whose name is Rusty, a place in Thunderclan. He accepts the offer, and she gives him the name Firepaw. She offers to mentor him herself, which is a special privilege. Just after Firepaw’s Apprentice Ceremony, a warrior named Tigerclaw returns to camp with the body of Redtail, the deputy, stating that Riverclan invaded Sunningrocks and Oakheart murdered Redtail. Tigerclaw then says that he took Oakheart’s life out of revenge. Bluestar names Lionheart deputy in Redtail’s place. A while later, she takes Firepaw and a few other apprentices to visit the Moonstone along with their mentors. On their way home, they are attacked by rats and Bluestar loses a life. When they return, they discover that Shadowclan had attacked the camp. Lionheart was killed in the battle, and Bluestar replaces him with Tigerclaw as her new deputy. After another battle with Shadowclan in which they drive out Shadowclan’s tyrannical leader, Brokenstar, along with a few of his closest followers, she gives Firepaw and Graypaw their Warrior names: Fireheart and Graystripe.
Some time after, Fireheart talks to Bluestar about Oakheart killing Redtail. Bluestar is skeptical, as deputies typically don’t kill one another. Not only that, but she already knew what kind of cat Oakheart was from a long time ago. Fireheart suspects that Tigerheart had killed Redtail out of a hunger for power. She sends Fireheart and Graystripe out to retrieve Windclan from exile. (They’d been driven out by Shadowclan’s old leader, Brokenstar, so he could take over their territory.) After their return, she comes down with a severe case of greencough, causing her to lose another life, with only one left. Fireheart discovers that Tigerclaw set a trap for Bluestar by the Thunderpath. Because of her illness, she couldn’t go, and Fireheart’s apprentice, Cinderpaw, goes instead. She is hit and nearly killed by a Monster. Luckily, she survives, but is crippled for life. Nightstar becomes leader of Shadowclan in Brokenstar’s place. Fireheart investigates the death of Redtail and Oakheart once more, and consults Mistyfoot, who introduces him to her “mother”, Graypool. Graypool reveals that Mistyfoot and Stonefur are not her kits, but that Oakheart is their father. She scented Thunderclan on them when they were first brought to her, but didn’t think anything of it. She also reveals that Oakheart was killed by a rockfall, not by Tigerclaw, which adds further evidence to Fireheart’s suspicion. Bluestar initially denies Fireheart’s accusations towards Tigerclaw and also denies that Mistyfoot and Stonefur are her kits. She finally believes Fireheart about Tigerclaw’s treachery when he leads Brokenstar’s rogues into camp and attacks Bluestar in an attempt to kill her and become leader. She is saved by Fireheart and exiles Tigerclaw, saying that if they catch him on Thunderclan territory again, they can kill him. She makes Fireheart her deputy in his place.
After this, Bluestar becomes a shell of her former self. She only trusts Fireheart and Whitestorm, her nephew. She and Fireheart attempt to visit the Moonstone, but are stopped by a Windclan patrol and forced to return home. She begins to think that Starclan do not want her to speak with them. At the next Gathering, the other clans wonder what happened to Tigerclaw, but Bluestar refuses to talk about it. After spotting two seriously ill Shadowclan warriors in their territory and forcing them to leave for the safety of her clan, it is revealed that there is a serious, deadly sickness in Shadowclan. A forest fire starts in Thunderclan’s forest, forcing the clan to evacuate the camp and take refuge in Riverclan’s camp. While Thunderclan is sheltering with Riverclan, Bluestar decides that Starclan has turned their backs on her and declares war against Starclan. She goes through a depression, caused by Tigerclaw’s betrayal and Starclan’s lack of help and direction. Fireheart tells her that Tigerclaw has become the new leader of Shadowclan, Tigerstar, after Nightstar and his deputy died due to the sickness. Bluestar grows to loathe Starclan at this point. She believes Windclan is stealing prey from Thunderclan even though evidence shows a dog has stolen prey, not cats. She prepares to attack Windclan, but Fireheart believes it is a pointless battle. He sneaks out to convince Windclan to talk with Bluestar and prevent a battle from occurring. Windclan agree to meet with Thunderclan to talk, and the meeting is successful. However, Bluestar is upset that Fireheart went behind her back. She leads a patrol past Sunningrocks one day, and they are attacked by Riverclan, who want the rocks back. During the battle, Bluestar is cornered by her kits, Mistyfoot and Stonefur, and they threaten to kill her. Fireheart saves her by revealing to them that she is their mother and they cannot hurt her. To Bluestar’s dismay, her kits reject her and retreat.
She sneaks out to the Moonstone, unknown to the clan, who worry about where she’d gone. She returns safely, stating that as clan leader, she can go where she pleases. She tells Fireheart that she received warning of a “pack”. Wanting to prove themselves worthy of Warrior names, two apprentices, Swiftpaw and Brightpaw, sneak out of camp one day to confront a mysterious threat that had been living at Snakerocks for a few moons. Bluestar had neglected to give them their warrior names, and only named Fireheart’s apprentice, Cloudtail, due to his lack of belief in Starclan. When the clan discovers they’re missing, Bluestar sends out a patrol to find them. When the patrol finds the pair, it’s a gruesome sight. Swiftpaw had already been killed by the time the patrol arrived, and Brightpaw is left hideously scarred and scarcely alive. They are brought back to camp, and Bluestar performs the Dying Warrior Ceremony on Brightpaw, naming her Lostface, in memory of Starclan’s punishment. Fireheart comes up with a plan to get rid of the threat at Snakerocks, which is revealed to be a vicious pack of guard dogs. The dogs had been fed and lured by Tigerstar, who was hoping to get his revenge on Thunderclan. Whitestorm stands as Bluestar’s guard while the plan is carried out. As Fireheart is running in front of the Pack Leader during the plan, Tigerstar jumps out at him and pins him down so the dog could catch up to him. Fireheart is saved by Bluestar, who had careened into the side of the dog. Shocked, the dog lets go of Fireheart, losing its balance and falling into the Gorge. As the dog is falling, it grabs Bluestar’s leg and drags her into the Gorge with it. Firestar leaps in after them, and swims frantically after Bluestar, who is struggling in the current. He grabs her, but she’s too heavy for him to carry alone. Suddenly, her weight is lifted from him when Mistyfoot and Stonefur come to the rescue. They take her to shore, and she realizes that Starclan had not betrayed her. She had seen the clan working together to remove the threat, and knew that they were still loyal and brave, and shouldn’t have to face the danger alone. She is forgiven by Mistyfoot and Stonefur and they accept her as their mother. They share tongues one last time, and she names Fireheart leader, saying that he is the fire that would save Thunderclan. With her faithful deputy and beloved kits at her side, she dies peacefully beside the river.
