Welcome to the Forest of Shadows. You may have thought that all Clans follow the same beliefs. But that is not so. In the Forest of Shadows, the cats follow a slightly different code and have a different set of ancestors. In this forest, the Clans believe that their ancestors are their shadows. Whenever the cats here see their shadow on the ground, they do not feel scared. They feel proud and brave, as their ancestors are watching them from that shadow. Their shadow contains the spirits of their ancestors. The shadows are their past, present, and future. DarknessClan, ShadowedClan, ShadedClan, and TwilightClan have lived like this for many, many, many moons, and do not fear the dark, but embrace it. I am a part of these Clans. And you will be part of us soon.
1. You will be ready to die for your Clan no matter what, and you will ALWAYS be loyal to your Clan. If you have a mate in a different Clan, then you will be exiled and your kits (if you have any) will be taken to the mother's Clan.
2. No hunting/trespassing on other Clans' territory. If you are caught, then you will take a Vigil of Shadow.
3. Kits will always eat first. Then comes the ill, queens, leader, med cat, deputy, elders, apprentices, warriors in that order.
4. Prey is killed only to be eaten or, at a difficult time, to make sacrifices to the Shadows.
5. A kit must be at least six moons old to become an apprentice and their Shadow must be unlocked.
An apprentice must be at least twelve moons old to become a warrior, but they must have unlocked their Darkness Within.
6. New warriors take a Vigil of Shadow one night and a regular vigil on another. They will also visit the Shadow Rock for the ceremony.
7. A cat can only be deputy if they have mentored an apprentice.
8. The deputy will become leader after the leader dies, retires or is exiled.
9. After the death/retirement of the new deputy, the new deputy must be chosen at midnight.
10. Gatherings are held every moon at the Stone Clearing.
11. Boundaries and borders will be checked daily, and all trespassers will be punished unless they are in dire need of help.
12. No warrior can neglect a kit in danger, even if the kit is in a different clan, unless the kit was born with a Light Soul.
13. The word of the Clan leader is the warrior code.
14. A warrior does not need to kill other cats to win their battles, unless they are outside the warrior code it is necessary for self-defense, or it is written in the shadows.
15. A warrior rejects the life of a kitty pet.
Darkness Within - the true purpose and bravery of a cat, the loyalty to the Shadows and the Clan.
Light Soul - a cat without a Shadow. Most that are a Light Soul are it because they are not worthy and are evil inside.
Shadow(s) - the ancestors of the cats, the ancestors are said to be inside of a literal shadow. All cats cast a Shadow except for Light Souls. You must have a Shadow to be an apprentice.
Vigil of Shadow - a punishment where the punished is trapped in a den with nobody but their Shadows whispering in their ears.
DarknessClan lives in a very dark, thick pine forest.
ShadowedClan lives in a deciduous forest.
ShadedClan lives on a very rocky plain, inside the caves.
TwilightClan lives by the Dark River.
The Light is a group of Light Souls that is dedicated to destroying the Clans. They live in a sunny meadow farther off from the Clans.
