Do 你 think Lilywhisker could be in the Dark Forest because she's the Windclan cat who killed Badgerfang?
Well, Su claims that Lilywhisker went to the Dark Forest because she couldn't accept her fate after her hind leg was broken.
I have a theory: What if Lilywhisker went to the Dark Forest because she killed Badgerfang?
However I like to think this isn't actually the reason but simply the motivation, on what later caused her to do the horrible things that sent her to the Dark Forest.
And there's even some evidence supporting it. Here's the opening of Badgerface's story in the "Code of the Clans" and only appearance of the: "The Windclan warrior sprang with his claws unsheathed, and the little black-and-white cat fell to the ground without making a sound. A trickle of blood crept from his ear, which was crumpled in the dust. Flintfang shook off the warrior trying to sink her teeth into his tail and bounded over to his unmoving Clanmate."
What we know about Badgerfang's killer:
It's a she-cat.
It's a Windclan cat.
Though it's just assumption, it's very likely this cat is also in the Dark Forest. It's shown that simply training in the Dark Forest (Redwillow and Antpelt) 或者 being loyal to the wrong cat (Tangleburr and Stumpytail) , is enough to get 你 into the Dark Forest. So killing a kit would be 更多 then enough to land 你 in the Dark Forest. Out of the three Windclan Dark Forests 猫 we know of; Houndleap, Lilywhisker and Antpelt, it had to be Lilywhisker who killed Badgerfang. As she's the only she-cat and lived in the right time frame to be alive when Shadowclan drove out Windclan.
Antpelt wasn't even born yet and Houndleap was already in the Dark Forest when Spottledleaf was an apprentice, meaning Brokenstar wasn't even leader yet when Houndleap died.
Possible counter arguments:
"She wouldn't of been too old 由 that point to be alive.". - At this point in time, Tallstar was still alive, still serval years left in him (Not dying until Starlight). And when Lilywhisker was around the age of a young warrior (retired very early), Tallsta
