Like all other wolf packs, the Clans had trouble from the beginning. From mysterious occurrences, to forbidden loves and nearly blood-shed, there has always been tension between the four. The original four Clans: ThunderClan, RiverClan, WindClan, and ShadowClan soon morphed after various events in the territories took place. RiverClan and ShadowClan joined to become StormClan, and SunClan arose on the mountains that seemed to touch the heavens.

Then, something began happening in the forest, and it was up to these four Clans to come together and rid the forest of this danger.

Long ago, when the paws of our ancestors reached this land, there were three Clans - DireClan, FoxClan, and CoyClan. DireClan wolves were known for their strength, and wolves of both FoxClan and CoyClan were known for their intelligence and cunning nature. It is hard to say where these Clans lived, however most agree that CoyClan populated what is now WindClan territory, FoxClan in what eventually became ShadowClan territory, and DireClan taking up the rest - that is, ThunderClan and RiverClan territory.

The three Clans lived in peace for a time, however tensions soon arose. Despite owning half of the forest, Whitestar, the leader of DireClan, desired even more territory. Fierce attacks were launched against the other two Clans, who were hardly able to fend off the merciless DireClan warriors. In a moment of desperation, CoyClan sent a young apprentice named Crystalpaw to FoxClan, hoping that the other Clan could save CoyClan from the destruction looming over them. Crystalpaw quickly snuck away from the battle and raced across the moors to FoxClan territory. The journey seemed impossible, but thankfully, as the apprentice crossed over to FoxClan territory, she met a border patrol and was able to deliver news of the fate that would befall CoyClan if they were not saved.

Accompanied by FoxClan warriors, Crystalpaw hurried back to CoyClan, praying that they weren't too late. The journey back was harder than the young apprentice had anticipated - the FoxClan warriors were slower than Crystalpaw, which was not helped by the unfamiliar terrain they now faced. However, they still arrived at the CoyClan camp in time, and eventually the DireClan warriors were forced back towards their own territory. With the battle barely won, the two Clans realized that there was no hope in defeating DireClan for good unless they fought together, and an alliance was formed. The day after the battle, Crystalpaw, even though she had not yet completed her training, was made a warrior and given the name Crystalshadow, as she slipped away from the battle and to FoxClan territory like a shadow.

After that fateful battle, nothing was heard from DireClan for moons. CoyClan took this oppurtunity to rebuild and train, while FoxClan worked on expanding their camp and building up their defenses. The two Clans frequently met at the FoxClan camp to plot their next battle with DireClan, and discuss possible reasons for DireClan's absence. Eventually, FoxClan decided to send a spy out to DireClan territory to discover why they had suddenly disappeared. The spy, a warrior named Ashwind, remained in DireClan territory for three days before returning to his own territory, where he announced that disease had severely weakened the other Clan. Following Ashwind's announcement, the unanimous decision to attack DireClan was made.

The following morning, all CoyClan and FoxClan wolves who were able to fight moved toward the DireClan camp. The attack took DireClan by surprise, and, thanks to the disease that had weakened them and the number of attacking wolves, the once fearsome Clan was easily defeated and banished from the forest. The territory was split in half, with CoyClan now owning what is now WindClan and RiverClan territory and FoxClan owning what eventually became ShadowClan and ThunderClan territory.

Peace once again ruled the land, however, again, the peace did not last long. Early one morning, the FoxClan deputy, named Tawnywing, snuck into the CoyClan camp and assassinated the CoyClan leader, Heatherstar, and her deputy Silverfoot. Unfortunately for Tawnywing, Crystalshadow caught the FoxClan deputy by surprise as he was sneaking away, and Tawnywing was killed. The warriors of CoyClan later declared Crystalshadow leader, who then declared war on FoxClan. Many fierce battles were fought, and he number of deaths on each side was overwhelming, and eventually only a small amount of wolves from each side remained, and many of those survivors left the forest and never returned.

Eventually, more wolves arrived in the forest, and the wolves who arrived after the war are our ancestors. Fierce territory battles were held, and thankfully these disputes were solved at the first Gathering, where the first leaders of ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan stepped forward to claim the lands best suited for their Clans, and agreed that Gatherings would be held at every full moon. Mothermouth was later discovered by a wolf named Moonwing, who was banished from WindClan for almost dying while following a feather. StarClan later made contact with Moonwing as she touched her nose to the Moonstone, and she was then welcomed back into WindClan, and the decision to have one medicine wolf for each Clan was made. Additionally, the Warrior Code was established, and that is when the history of the four Clans we know now truly began.

The above was a contest entry by Nightfeather called the "Legendary History Contest". It was the first place winner.
