Relationships Within the Clan
LEADER & DEPUTY
The deputy was once Mulestar’s apprentice and had a close bond with his leader. Mulestar was very fond of Timberfang who was only a year and a half younger than him. After Timberfang became a warrior he was appointed as one of Mulestar’s closes confidants. They spend over 90% of their time together and were often seen huddled together in close conversation. Some even thought that the two were more than close friends. About 12 moons after Timberfang was made a warrior, Mulestar’s sister and deputy at the time Sandflower attacked her brother while out hunting, she pushed him down a cliff where he died, losing his first life. When Mulestar returned to camp he banished his sister from Muleclan.
Without a second thought from anyone Starclan appointed Timberfang as the next deputy. A moon or so later things began to change in the relationship between the leader and deputy. For reasons unknown to the clan Timberfang’s view on his leader began to change. It happened slowly, he would question simple things here and there. He drew away from Mulestar and was often found with Sandflower’s mate Redcinders. Mulestar mostly felt betrayal from his deputy but kept a professional front up for his clan. When they need to the leader and deputy work well together, they can plan and support each other very well, but there is also a lot of deceit between them.
Timberfang has a small group of clan cats who support Sandflower and wish to see her as leader not her brother. Although they are very secret and are planning ways to get rid of Mulestar, they have known that it will take time and are waiting patiently. Mulestar believes his position as a leader should be given to his first born son. When the time is right and his kit is old enough he will kill off Timberfang, making it look like an accident, and replace him with a cat of his choosing.
