...You're walking down the verge of a Thunderpath, orange pine needles prick your paw-pads as you step along the stone walkway. You swerve to avoid running into a thick pine tree, then flatten your ears as you rise to the top of a hill and get hit by an icy gust of wind. Shuddering as the wind ruffles through your fur, you keep your head low and continue walking on, following a strange howling noise.
On one side is a rolling hillside covered in short stubby dead grass, and the rare stunted bush or treed. The other a forest shadowed by the dull-brown and dead looking oaks. The sidewalk ends, but the scent continues along the Thunderpath. Suddenly you sense danger from behind, but it's too late. Three vicious-looking cats surround you with long, sharpened blood-stained claws digging into the soft ground.
"Kittypet!" A dark-as-night tom growls and steps forth, showing intimidating yellowed teeth. A red she-cat with a long coat that you envy in the frozen air looks uninterested and flicks her ear once, saying "They're not worth it, just another lost stray. Put your claws away Amberstrike, Firestreak decides whether we teach them a lesson or not."
A golden and black striped tom steps forth and raises his head, eyes narrowed. Deep within you see a flame burning, but push it aside and stand up to meet him.
"This territory is BurningClan, you should not have dared trespassed. My Clan has wiped out any others who dare oppose us, and you are no different. Unless of course you think you have what it takes to join?"
The question lingers, and even the crows that were calling seem to silence themselves. After a few moments, you take a deep breath, raise your head and say-
EchoClan was once the strongest Clan in the forest. Proud, clever warriors who hunted and fought to defend their pine territory in the Dark Forest. Their leader was Sunstar, but she was murdered and due to the fact there were hardly any warriors left the Clan split up. Once fierce and wily cats, it is now hard to find the personality that made them known far and wide, and even harder to find a cat with their blood.
These cats were wild-hearted and free, and were usually at peace. Although it had been a safe-haven from most wars and problems, they had a few of the best fighters in the forest. They lived on the side of the Thunderpath. BurningClan's leader Firestreak had a problem with ShadeClan, and is proud to say he stole most of their potential warriors. Soon only Cheetahstar and her daughter Rosepaw remained, they abandoned their home and now reside on the moor.
A few seasons ago IceClan disappeared completely. All throughout the territory, there was no sign of them. In StarClan, no one has seen any IceClan cat. It seems as if there never even was an IceClan. If ANY cat has information please contact Flamestar or Firestreak.
