"When her littermates received warrior names, Briarlight was given one too, a reflection of her fierce-burning spirit, a recognition of the unimaginably difficult and unique apprenticeship that she had served."

Briarlight is a sleek-furred,[1] dark brown she-cat[2] with a broken lower spine,[3] sky-blue eyes,[4] firm shoulder muscles,[5] powerful forepaws,[6] and inoperable rear legs.[7]


Briarkit was born to Millie and Graystripe. She almost died from greencough, along with her mother, Millie.


Briarpaw's mentor is Thornclaw. She tries to save Longtail from the falling tree, but it results in getting a broken lower spine.


Briarlight, though useless, was useful in the medicine cat's den with Jayfeather. She couldn't go to Gatherings because of her condition, though she remained doing daily exercises to stay fit and strong.
