The Deputy is an important part of a clan. He or she is chosen by the current leader to help them guide and lead his or her clan. A Warrior takes this position, only after mentoring at least one apprentice. The deputy sleeps in the warriors den. They are in charge of organizing nearly every battle, hunting, and boarder patrol. If the leader dies or retires, the deputy becomes the new leader after receiving nine lives from StarClan. Deputies sleep in the warrior den, go on regular patrols, and are very active in his or hers clan activity.
