The Dark Forest is the opposite of StarClan's hunting grounds. It is a place where cats that have committed great crimes against their Clans and against the Warrior Code go when they die. However, cats who commit crimes but believe they are following the Warrior Code by doing them can usually join the ranks of StarClan instead. Here, they are slowly forgotten by living cats, and are subjected to fading away. Dark Forest cats are sometimes known for preying on young cats - training them against their Clan. These cats can also create prophecies, but it less common for those messages to reach Medicine cats or Leaders.
