The Clan Leader may choose to punish cats who broke the Warrior Code. These include scolding, giving a warrior apprentice duties, or giving an apprentice some unpleasant task. In severe cases, the cat may be exiled from the Clan.
Cats who broke the Code severely and repeatedly end up in the Shade Place after their death, instead of reaching SpiritClan.
