The RiverClan of the Erin Hunter world is a petty group, seemingly lazy compared to the rest of the Clans due to their very different hunting strategy. They are depicted with time to worry about small wastes of time such as decorating their dens with things they’ve found around the river. CoSC’s RiverClan is rather different.

While appreciative of the beauty found within their territory, the RiverClan of CoSC is full of cats who are dedicated to the warrior code and upholding it as best they can. In off seasons, they can be seen training to catch prey on land and perfecting their fighting techniques-while in peak fishing season, their lithe and agile bodies conquer the water with ease.

Priding in all that which is loyal, honest, and hard working, RiverClan is a picture of poise and grace.

Territory

RiverClan has a variety of terrains in its territory, but the most notable feature is the river that runs through the eastern side of the territory. The western part of the territory is open fields that provide access to a variety of prey.

Prey

While fish is the primary food of RiverClan for 3 seasons of the year (Leaf-bare renders the river un-fish-able and sends the fish into hibernation), leading to their perfected fishing tactics, stream-side rodents such as water-voles are also frequently hunted. While they are not experts at hunting them, rabbits can be found in Northfield, and squirrels frequent the River Copse. These staples are supplemented with mice and birds.

Character

Lifetimes of fishing has resulted in a Clan with an unusually high number of cats with well developed patience; although, in the same vein, they are commonly very stubborn. Amongst the other Clans, these traits have become well known simply due to passing patrols noting a cat fishing when they pass and seeing the same cat in the same place upon their return trek.

Appearance

RiverClan cats trend large for Clan Cats. Color is of little consequence to a RiverClanner, and in accordance they come in a multitude of shades and don’t think about things like how well camouflaged a pelt might make one.

RiverClan Allegiances

Home to 11 cats, of which 5 are Male, 6 are Female, and 0 are other biological genders.

Territory and Maps

Camp

Leader’s Chamber

Located near the medicine cat’s chamber is the leader’s personal chamber. It’s a simple chamber that provides a private place for the leader to rest or meet with other cats.

Deputy’s Chamber

A small chamber at the forefront of the Warren lies the chamber that belongs to the deputy of the Clan.

Medicine Cat’s Chamber

Back just beyond the deputy’s chamber lies what is called the medicine cat’s chamber. Despite its name, it is not just a single space, it is really a complex of chambers. The first of the three chambers is the one where most examinations happen, off which stem three hollows. The largest of these hollows is used as a sickroom, and the smallest is devoted to medicine cat’s personal sleeping quarters. The medium-sized chamber is devoted to the storage of herbs.

Nursery Chamber

A large chamber deep within the rabbit warren that is lined with the fur and features of prey for the warmth of the infant cats who’ll experience their first weeks of life almost exclusively in this warm, dark place.

Elders’ Hollow

A hollow hidden in a well protected area of the TwinWillow’s roots that provides a place for the Clan’s oldest members to stay warm and dry while they rest.

Warriors’ Hollow

Amongst the roots of the TwinWillow is a large open area in which the bulk of the Clan’s warriors sleep. It’s comfortable, and sheltered overhead by branches, leaves and grass.

Apprentices’ Hollow

Much like the warrior’s hollow, the apprentice’s hollow is just beyond it and constructed in much the same way amongst the roots of the tree.

Freshkill Hollow

A small hollow amongst the roots of the TwinWillow that provide a sheltered and protected place for the storage of Freshkill.

Description: This open, grassy knoll is a fine place to fish, providing access to areas of the river where fish crossing it are forced close to the surface by shallowness, but are tempted to brave in efforts to get to deeper, stiller waters to the north. The area also provides access to birds and squirrels near the borders.
