ThunderClan Family Tree by Scourgeseer ThunderClan Family Tree by Scourgeseer
I actually made it,,, so many cats,,,rip

okay so as a lot of you probably guessed, a lot of this isn't canon. i just made a bunch of pairings and litters together to get rid of close incest, fix where cats show up randomly with no family relations, and to make it easy on myself  because creating a family tree with five kits of the same litter who all had mates is v e r y  s t r e n u o u s

here's some explanations/personal headcanons:

-Crowheart, Mapleshade's dad, died in a battle with rouges when she was only seven moons old. This gave Maplepaw a lot of trauma, and it didn't help at all when Petalface, her mom, took another mate pretty much right after and had another litter. The stress of losing a close parent and her mother not paying attention to her made Maplepaw a bit of an attention seeker and a delinquent, and this is partly what sparked her relationship with Appledusk.

-Deerpaw was killed by Applefrost as vengeance for her half sister killing his father.

-Dappletail had kits with Stormtail, but he died before she gave birth. Dappletail knew that both Goosefeather and Bluefur had an animosity toward her two kits, and frankly, she didn't really want to take care of them, so she gave them to Adderfang and Swiftbreeze. Redkit and Spottedkit believed that Adderfang and Swiftbreeze were their real parents because nobody bothered to tell them the truth.

-Willowpelt was never mates with Tawnyspots nor Patchpelt. Whitestorm is the father of Graystripe and Deerfoot, a ShadowClan warrior, is Darkstripe's father. Darkstripe was bullied for not looking like a ThunderClan cat and felt replaced after his mother took another mate, so he sought Tigerclaw as a role model and voice of reason (This isn't my headcanon actually, it's from this post).

The cats with red tinted names are cats that Mapleshade had impacted in some way

Appledusk - killed by her...duh (canon)
Doestar - tormented over the death of Deerpaw
Deerpaw - killed as vengeance for Appledusk
Flashnose - her mate was willed into being unfaithful because Mapleshade enjoyed tormenting her
Moonflower - Hawkheart was warned ahead of time by Mapleshade about Moonflower destroying his herb storage
Goosefeather - he was trained by her a little bit (canon)
Redtail - Mapleshade told Tigerstar to kill him (canon...i think)
Spottedleaf - killed by her (canon)
Thistleclaw - trained by her (canon)
Snowfur - Mapleshade forced her into staying in the road
Bluestar - What happened with Snowfur/Oakheart/similar situation with Mapleshade...(pretty much canon)
Oakheart - brother of Crookedstar/Mapleshade pushed him under the falling rocks (pretty much canon)
Pinestar - he grew up in fear of Mapleshade because his father told stories about her
Sandstorm - she almost got killed by her in the Last Hope (canon)
Tigerstar - trained by her (canon)
Silverstream - Mapleshade wounded her internally as she was kitting, which ended up killing her

The ThunderClan family tree is seriously entwined with other tribes, I literally JUST noticed.

Thistleclaw be like: "Well if I can't have Snowfur, how about I have her half-sister? Brilliant idea!"

Looks great! I was looking over the RiverClan one and I noticed that Bluestar's design was a little different than what it is on here. I'm assuming this is just a mistake and you might have missed it, so I'm just pointing it out. Still looks great, though!

Yeah for Oakheart/Bluestar/Mapleshade/Appledusk/Tawnypelt/Rowanstar's designs I was just lazy with their designs and didn't bother to pull up the other file. But they all look generally the same so it's fine.

Ah, I see. I'd probably be lazy about it to tbh. It's fine, though, you're right.
