thought it'd be fun to design the leaders directly before the current leaders :) heres some info about them below the cut
Asterstar - Rippleclan - Female - leader from 61-110 moons ago - Approx. 110 moons at death
- Asterstar was a close friend of Snakestar, the two of them were often found hanging out together even before she appointed him her deputy. She had no other deputies during her long reign.
- She was nervous and hesitant and often needed Snakestar to make the big decisions for her. She was well-loved within the clan for being a soft, caring figure for the youngest of kittens to the oldest of elders.
- Despite her best wishes, Asterstar lead her clan into many battles against Thornclan, as she had major disagreements with the clan often. Towards the end of her last life she was distant, as watching many of her clanmates die around her really began to wear on the older leader.
Mintstar - Gorseclan - Male - leader from 65-10 moons ago - Approx. 90 moons at death
-Mintstar had an odd reputation among the other clans due to his zoned-out stares that often frightened cats. Mintstar, however, paid this no mind.
-Mintstar was friendly and kind towards cats of his clan and other clans alike, though his kindness was often taken advantage of. He had to fight in battles he was uninterested in a lot, due to tensions between the three clans rising.
- Appointing Shrewstar as his deputy was a no-brainer to Mintstar, who only wanted to avoid conflict from others. Shrewstar was stoic and calm and served as an amazing deputy to him.
Wolfstar- Thornclan - Male - leader from 20-15 moons ago - Approx. 30 moons at death
-Wolfstar was assigned as deputy to reinstall vigor into the clan, a move that Venomstar had no clue would lead to a horrible down-turn for their clan, leading to many cats leaving. While Wolfstar was an amazing leader and did what he thought was best for the clan, he also brought them into countless battles during these five moons.
-He chose Deadpaw as his deputy because of Deadpaw's skills and a different attitude to his own. Though he knew another young deputy was maybe not the best move, Wolfstar had no reason to believe he'd die so young.
-Though his insistence on battling kept the clan strong, and meant that no territory was lost, it wouldn't be what inevitably killed him. When a horrible sickness ran through the clan, Wolfstar lost three lives to it and died in a way that left the clan afraid of what was next.
