IN THE BEGINNING there were four. four that had lived together longer than any memory could reach. many struggles had passed between these four, but somehow it made them closer than ever. each clan--thunder, wind, river, and shadow--had their own battles to fight and grew stronger because of it. for a stretch of time, relative peace had settled among the clans.
far off in a land little knew of, another clan was struggling. prey was few and far between and warriors had little energy to travel further in search of more. drought stung the clan while kits and elders passed from lack of water. they clung to the hope of a coming rain, but it soon became apparent that none would arrive. skyclan found themselves in a position they never dreamed of--the clan would have to move, and soon.
it was not soon enough, however, when a fire started in a nearby clearing. it raged quickly, eating up the distance between it and the camp. despair struck when its heat demolished anything left of the camp and took beloved clanmates with it. skyclan fled with its remaining members and wandered aimlessly for a few long nights. clearly in need of help, starclan sent a dream to the medicine cat, telling of a land plentiful of prey--and cats.
a half-moon passed before the clan arrived at their new home, but the welcome gazes were absent. the original four clans were less than thrilled at the new arrivals--some more than others. after all, who would be the one to cave and share territory? how could this new clan waltz in and demand a piece of their land? no, it was not going to be easy.
skyclan was eventually nestled between thunderclan and windclan, though the borders are still disputed. each clan had to give up a portion of their precious land to make room for the newcomers and the lines drawn between the new cuts of territory are not yet set in stone. border skirmishes are common and vicious--no clan wants to give up more than their share. six moons have passed since skyclan's arrival and feelings are still raw. the fight for more territory leads to more prey and ultimately a more flourishing clan. will yours fight for survival?
