No, unless an accidental mauling countsExplain your Plot:
Briarpaw was destined to become a great warrior, named Briarthorn. But starclan new that unless he was first trained as a medicine cat, he would have no compassion and get out of control with a growing lust to fight that would consume him. The long story:
Briarkit spent longer In the nursery than most other kits. With Lichenmask on the loose, there was no time to make him an apprentice. Not long after Lichenmask and his group of exiles and rogues were defeated, Brindlestar was prompted by StarClan to make Briarkit into Briarpaw, the MCA of WindClan. Goldeneye, the old, grumpy MC of RiverClan trained him. Before his training was complete, Jaystar forbade Goldeneye from training Briarpaw any longer. During the fight with the dogs, Briarpaw notices that he had no training in fighting, and that WindClan needed more warriors. He puts that thought to the back of his mind then, telling himself that he need to put his Clanmates first.
Here’s the part were it goes to plot instead of what’s already happened.
While with the tribe, Briarpaw gets a dream that tells him he needs to travel to the Moonstone. When he eventually does, he is confronted by an old WindClan cat. The cat tells him that he was always destined to be a powerful warrior. When Briarpaw asks why he was made a MCA, the cat will tell him that it was so he could learn compassion, and to not let battle consume him.
As he begins to be trained, he finds he loves to fight. Every time, he feels this Thrill rise inside him. It is not very strong in the beginning, but it grows. His mentor tells him to forget everything that he learned as a MCA, because it will make him weak, so he pushes those memories to the back of his mind. Briarpaw gets into a border skirmish, and defeets someone with more battle training than him. This surprises his mentor, who trains him harder. The more he trains and fights, the more of a thirst to fight he has. He goes on patrols hoping to get into border skirmishes so he can fight.
On his moonstone journey, Briarpaw is reminded by that same cat that he needs to remember what he learned as a MCA, because it’s important. He dismisses it, and becomes a warrior, earning himself the name Briarthorn.
He falls in love with a she-cat, and they become mates, and she becomes pregnant with his kits.
Time goes on, and Briarthorn becomes extremely arrogant and self centers. He gets into a lot of border skirmishes and fights, winning many of them. His mate confronts him about this growing problem, and it evolves into an argument. In his anger, Briarthorn leaves on a border patroll,
Briarthorn gets into a fight, and the Thrill he feels when he fights leads him to do more damage than he intended, severily mauling the cat. He snapes out of it, and is horrified at what he had done. He tries to be more careful, but every time he tries to fight, the Thrill threatens to consume him. He tries to remember what he leaned as a MCA, but his memories seem faded from being repressed for so long.
Briarthorn wants to make things up with his mate, but he doesn't want to get close to her again, for fear that he will hurt her. But slowly, their relationship is heald. Having her forgive him helps Briarthorn, but the Thrill is still there. He notices that the more time he spends with her, the more he remembers from his days as a MCA. He learns to control the Thrill, rather than letting it control him. It helps him be a better warrior, and a better father to his kits. Kits he would never have been able to have, from a mate he wouldn't have been able to have, if he’d become a MC. How will this impact the characters/clans involved?:
This will help me grow Briarpaw as a character, and could possibly help WindClan be more active.Provide links to relevant topics:

Because I need something to do with Briarpaw so I don't kill him because he's boring
It could help WindClan be more active, since there would be something cool going on after the flood is over. Also, WindClan needs more warriors.
