The scene my sister Rachel is going to be drawing today is of Leopardstar confronting Graystripe, telling him to choose! Fight Fireheart or get the heck out of her Clan!
If I were Leopardstar I would be so mad! She had her doubts about trusting Graystripe, she didn’t think he was entirely loyal to RiverClan. And guess what – he wasn’t!
So yeah – she exiles him from RiverClan, and back to ThunderClan he goes.
I’d love to hear in the comments section down below what you would do as the RiverClan leader, it was Crookedstar who accepted Graystripe into the Clan because he was basically Crookedstar’s son in law, but… it becomes very apparent after this that loyalty to RiverClan is very important to Leopardstar. The needs of her Clan comes first, and any opportunity to better RiverClan’s chances of survival is an opportunity to be taken.
