Cherryfall is a fluffy,[1] ginger she-cat[2] with amber eyes.[3]


After she was born to Poppyfrost and Berrynose in The Fourth Apprentice along with her brother, Molekit, three Dark Forest Warriors are staring hungrily at Cherrykit and Molekit, and Lionblaze hisses, "You will not have these kits!" To them.

Two of them are known to be Tigerstar and Hawkfrost, while the third is unknown. Later on, though, he is identified as Brokenstar. When Briarlight breaks her spine, Cherrykit and Molekit climb on top of her.

Cherrykit offers her food to Briarlight, who denies sweetly and manages to get her own meal from the Clan's fresh-kill pile.

Cherrykit is astounded. Cherrykit is one of the first cats who begin to catch whitecough. Cherrykit is told by her mom, Poppyfrost, to retreat back into the nursery, due to her Whitecough. Seeing this as she is spying on ThunderClan, Hollyleaf leaves yarrow at the entrance to the camp.

She returns to her new mate, Fallen Leaves, and tells him she safely delivered the yarrow without being seen, and it worked and Cherrykit has fully recovered.

She then states that she would have liked Cherrykit for an apprentice if she had chosen to remain a warrior of ThunderClan. Cherrykit begins to recover from Whitecough, and is unharmed.


Cherrykit earns her apprentice name; Cherrypaw. Her mentor is Foxleap. When Foxleap, Rosepetal and Cherrypaw go hunting, Cherrypaw comes back with a huge squirrel that she caught.

Cherrypaw and Mousewhisker share a rotting mouse, and end up with a bellyache.

They try to treat it themselves, and end up being near fatally-poisoned when they mistook the water hemlock for parsley.

Cherrypaw has to be pinned down to keep from flailing and choking to death on her own tongue.

Poppyfrost and Daisy are frantic, but Leafpool and Cinderheart calm them down, saying that they'll be OK.

During the battle against the Dark Forest, Cherrypaw, along with her brother, Molepaw, are told to be messengers for the Clans.

When she and Molepaw are not seen for a while, ThunderClan begins to worry, but at the end of the book, Cherrypaw and Molepaw are discovered to be safe and alright.


Cherrypaw becomes a warrior with the name Cherryfall.
