Several seasons have passed since the original Clans died out. The remaining cats, confused and afraid, left their friends and family behind to live with loners, rogues or even strangers. Kits were killed, families seperated, and cats murdered to keep just one feral feline alive.
But one cat remained faithful to the warrior code.
Desperate to save the code that countless warriors had lived by, he fought, losing blood and flesh, to bring the Clans back. When his task was complete, he knew the days of the original Clans were over - this was a new generation of young and old alike, ready to grasp the ways of the warrior code and tread the path of a warrior. These were the new warrior cats.
