Yarrowclan is one of the four clans. It is located on the orchard cliff, and its main territory is covered in yarrow. They specilize in catching any land prey, such as mice, rabbits and voles. It was named after the flowers that grow around the camp and its founder, Yarrowstar.
Yarrowclan is one of the four clans, bordering Hollyclan and Echoclan. They hunt through the yarrow, which they disguise their scent in when catching prey, since all Yarrowclan cats get used to stench of yarrow and they learn to blend into it as well. Sometimes the scent of the yarrow even defends their camp since some Rogues and other clan cats can't stand the smell.
It was founded by Yarrowstar and she simply chose it as her territory because she was the only one who could stand the smell, plus she has felt like it was destined to let her camp live there, and now its lead by Featherstar.
Yarrowclan cats are stealthy and blend into yarrow, but also are very quick and smart. They are always stocked on herbs and don't enjoy getting into drama, so they avoid all conflict. and for this, they are normally called cowards. For along time, Echoclan and Yarrowclan cats have remained a close bond, and have never broken that bond and for this they're known as a force not to be reckoned with, since Yarrowclan are very trustworthy and helpful.
But Yarrowclan does have their downsides. They can have very strong winds, which can cause them to nearly go flying, such as Yarrowstar, who died when the wind carried her to her death when she was blown away off the cliff. It also suffers from fires, but this is rarely. and they even have the chance to coming across predators, such as foxes and badgers, and even the rare chance of wolves.
