A Clan Leader's Nine Lives

When a new Clan Leader is appointed, they visit StarClan to have a special ceremony where along with their Leader's name with the 'star' suffix, are given nine lives so they can use them to protect their Clan for as long as possible.

Each life is given by a member of StarClan that has been important to the new Leader during their life or was just a significant member of their Clan in the past. Each life is also given a meaning, which will represent a certain way in which they can protect their Clan. The meaning of each life usually relates to the cat who gives the life, such as a mate might give a life of love.

Most leader's nine lives ceremonies are never revealed in the books as it is forbidden to discuss the ceremony outside of StarClan. However there has been a few ceremonies that have been revealed, below is a list of these.
