"I guess I did, but today I saw just how fragile that freedom is. You have to fight for everything - for your food, even somewhere to shelter. I like to know where I will be sleeping every night, and that there will always be food when my belly grows empty. And I like my housefolk. Not all Twolegs are as bad as the ones destroying your home."

Cody is a soft-furred[1] brown mackerel[2] tabby she-cat[3] with bright[4] blue eyes.[3]


When Leafpaw is trapped in the Twoleg Nest, Cody is in the neighboring cage. She encourages Leafpaw to cheer up and eat some food. The two cats become good friends and Cody shows her some of the other cats who have also been trapped; Mistyfoot, Brightheart, and Cloudtail. While talking to Cloudtail, she mentions that she knows Princess, Cloudtail's mother, and Smudge who had said a cat named Rusty used to live where she now lives, and that he joined the wildcats in the forest. Cody asks Leafpaw about her father when she learns that Firestar has the same color coat as Rusty's.

Cody tries to bond with the workfolk, by purring and letting them stroke her. Leafpaw thinks she is mad, but Cody says that it can't hurt to try and escape this way. When a loner named Coal is badly injured by the workfolk, Leafpaw instructs Cody to pass some cobwebs to him, so that he can stop the bleeding. Afterwards, Cody tells Leafpaw how impressed she was about how Leafpaw handled the situation.

When the four Clans leave, she tells Leafpaw that she is not suited for Clan life, and that she is much happier with her Twolegs. It is also noted that Birchkit asks where she will go once the Clans set out on the journey. Leafpaw remembers that Cody was too busy to ever ask if Firestar was the former kittypet, Rusty.


When they finally escape, with the help of Graystripe and several other cats, she stays with ThunderClan temporarily. At first, the Clan is not pleased with having to share their prey with an extra cat, but Firestar explains that she cannot return to her housefolk until they can spare a patrol to escort her. Cody shows sympathy for Ferncloud when her kit dies and tells Leafpaw that she lost a litter too.

When Leafpaw thinks they died, Cody quickly adds that the Twolegs took her kits away, to live in new homes. She helps to nurse Birchkit while Ferncloud grieves over the loss of her daughter, Hollykit, and helps remove splinters from the ShadowClan kits, after their camp is destroyed by monsters.
