Guide To Ranks

Leaders are an Clan's administrator. It's their job to make sure their Clan runs smoothly and every cat remains well fed and secure. A Leader's duties include:

- Making sure each and every cat has enough food and is well fed
- Keeping borders secure and territory free of all threats
- Maintaining peaceful relations with other Clans
- Should a conflict arise, Leaders must lead their Clan and face the threat.
- Making sure all Apprentices are trained well and each is assigned to a mentor
- Notice when an Apprentice is finished training and promote them to Warrior rank when needed
- Keep expecting Queens, Kits, and Elders safe from harm
In a Leader's eyes, the Clan always comes first and they must do anything they can to protect it!

Should a female Leader become pregnant, she is allowed to take a "leave" from leadership while she raises her kits. Male leaders whose mates are expecting/have had kits are allowed extended periods of time with their mate and are allowed to ask their Deputy to take over certain things. (More on this is in the rules.)



Deputys are a Clan's second in command, only lower in rank than the Leader and on the same level as the Healer and their apprentice. They're often the one's who organize and lead the hunting patrols and border checks. All other Warriors and Apprentices report unusual activity in their territory to the Deputy who, in turn, reports to the Leader.

Should an Clan's Leader die, retire, or go missing, it's the duty of the Deputy to step up and become Leader. A Deputy can refuse leadership if he/she doesn't feel like can handle the responsibilities. In that case, a kit of the previous Leader will assume command.

Deputy may become "temporary" Leaders if the current Leader is expecting kits or has to leave the territory for an extended time.



The medicine cat serves the Clan as both their spiritual leader and healer, making them akin to the idea of a 'medicine man' in a tribal society. In addition to their responsibilities to their Clan, they have responsibility to one another and StarClan. They carry out their responsibilities to StarClan once every half-moon, meeting together to discuss matters privately and share dreams with StarClan. Clan leaders often rely on them to carry messages from StarClan, as medicine cats have a link no other cat has to the deceased.
As a healer, they gather herbs and dispense them as an apothecary would. They handle diagnosis and treatment of both illness and injury for all the cats in the Clan.
In their role as spiritual leader, they teach the code, interpret omen and prophecy, and generally serve the Clan as a conduit between the earthly cats and their ghostly counterparts.
As a medicine cat, they are not allowed to have a mate or kits, but this rule has been broken by certain medicine cats. Medicine cats also exist outside of typical Clan rivalries in order to treat all cats fairly.


Healer Apprentices:

Kits +6 moons old who are taken in by the Clan's Healer to learn the ways of compassion and healing. These individuals are put on a rigorous training schedule and are often kept separate from the other apprentices because of it. They are constantly drilled on herbs, plants, and other healing remedy so that one day they may help their clan.

Healer apprentices must also complete a set number of tasks to be considered a full Healer:
RP your apprentice meeting their mentor for the first time (this will be at your app. ceremony, so it's kinda a freebie)
RP your apprentice collecting herbs
RP your apprentice helping out their mentor with a wounded Clan cat
RP your apprentice hunting! Even Healers should know the basics of hunting.
RP your apprentice doing anything of your choosing.



A warrior is a cat trained in the arts of fighting and hunting. Warriors make up the bulk of a Clan, and provide that Clan with the protection and food supply that keeps it safe and well-fed. Typically, a cat is made a warrior at or over the age of twelve moons. In their oath to become a warrior, they promise to "uphold the warrior code and protect and defend their Clan, even at the cost of their life."
Warrior dens are very often near the front of the Clan, where they can protect the rest of their Clan from attacks.
There are also senior warriors, older, respected warriors, mentioned to have a good bond with the Clan's leader.



An apprentice is a cat in training to become a warrior. Their names end in the word "-paw" (e.g. Tawnypaw, Bramblepaw, Firepaw etc). Most usually are at or over the age of six moons. They have a mentor appointed to them at their ceremony and most days are taken out battle training or hunting. They are also given the task of cleaning out bedding and removing Elder's ticks and fleas. Apprentices are not allowed to have a mate or kits, likely because of their young age or not to interrupt their training.

Apprentices must complete a set number of tasks before they can receive StarClan's blessing and go on to the next level.
These include:

RP your apprentice meeting their mentor for the first time (This one is during the ceremony, so it's kinda a freebie)
RP your apprentice practicing "offensive" type moves with  your mentor
RP your apprentice practicing "defensive" type moves with your mentor
RP your apprentice hunting with mentor present
RP your apprentice doing anything of your choosing.



A kit is a cat who has not been made an apprentice yet. Their names always end in "-kit" (e.g. Dovekit, Lionkit, Blossomkit). Most often, they are under the age of six moons. Though sometimes they are held back from being an apprentice for a certain amount of time, sometimes due to injury or misbehaving.
They stay in the camp and are forbidden to leave it, unless accompanied by an older cat, such as a warrior, a medicine cat, or any kind of apprentice.

Kits must complete a set number of tasks before they can receive a mentor and go on to the next level.
These include:
RP your kit with their parents / siblings /  or somewhere in camp
RP your kit playing
RP you kit meeting someone new
