The original series of Warriors books, first published in 2003, has expanded with four main spinoff series of novels (The New Prophecy, Power of Three, Omen of the Stars and Dawn of the Clans), as well as other limited series and one-offs. All of the books take place in world of cat characters, which belong to different "clans" that have developed different talents, abilities, and loyalties. Though the cats do not display human physical abilities, they think and feel the way humans do, harboring feelings of love, loyalty, and prejudice toward members of other clans. They engage in numerous wars and battles, and develop friendships and romantic relationships. The books explore ideas concerning nature vs. nurture, prejudice, and the dubious merits of war/violence.

In the Warriors universe, the characters in the five warrior Clans (ThunderClan, RiverClan, WindClan, ShadowClan, and SkyClan) have names composed of two parts. Each cat's name has a prefix (Blue, Bramble, Tall, etc.) which generally stays constant throughout their life. The name's suffix varies through the character's lifespan and position within the Clan, with the bestowing of the new name being a component of the ceremonies marking these role changes. As a kitten, the character's name ends with "-kit" (Bluekit, Bramblekit, Tallkit, etc.). Upon becoming an apprentice (a warrior or medicine cat in training), "-paw" replaces "-kit" at the end of the character's name (Bluepaw, Bramblepaw, Tallpaw, etc.). When the character completes their apprenticeship and is promoted to a full warrior or medicine cat, the suffix to their name is then changed to one chosen by the Clan leader or medicine cat (Bluefur, Brambleclaw, Talltail, etc.). If a cat becomes a Clan leader, they are granted the suffix "-star" at the end of their name (Bluestar, Bramblestar, Tallstar, etc.). If a leader commits a crime, they may be deemed unworthy of their name, stripped of the "-star" suffix, and return to using their warrior name. A cat may also have their name changed in a special ceremony.
When Clan cats die, their spirits go to a place called StarClan if they were good cats in life. If the cats were not good in their life, their spirits are sent to the Dark Forest (also known as The Place of No Stars), a hellish type of purgatory. Cats may also try to communicate with StarClan through a chunk of quartz deep in a mountain off the Clans' lake territory called the Moonstone, or a secluded pool of water called the Moonpool.
