Crookedstar is a glossy[1] and thick-furred,[2] light brown[3] tabby tom[4] with a pale brown belly[5] and legs,[6] a nick in his ear,[7] green eyes, and a twisted jaw.[4]

Kit

He was born alongside his brother, Oakkit. His parents were Rainflower and Shellheart. One day, Stormkit wandered out of his camp with his brother, and spotted an "intruder", which would end up being ThunderClan's slightly insane medicine cat, Goosefeather

The two taunted the medicine cat, until he turned on them and started to pursue. Stormkit, in a vain attempt to escape, launched himself into the river, where he was struck in the jaw by a jutting rock.

That is the time where Mapleshade, a deceased she-cat, first appears to Stormkit/Crookedkit.

After reasurring Stormkit that it was not his time to die, Stormkit was lifted out of the water by the RiverClan warrior, Mudfur.

After a long and strenous revocery process, Stormkit finally made it out of the medicine den, yet his jaw had not completely healed, as it was lopsided and disfigured. Rainflower, now disgusted with her kit and his appearance, requested that his name be changed to the name "Crookedkit."

This then spurred an argument between Shellheart and Rainflower, who would then split up as mates. Stormkit's name in the end was changed to Crookedkit, and his apprenticeship delayed.

Throughout this time, Crookedkit snapped, and he fled from RiverClan, to a farm around the borders of RiverClan. Here, he met Fleck, a cat that that stayed primarily to a barn, and after befriending the tom, he ended up learning how to hunt mice and rabbits.

Later on, he meets Fleck's sister Mitzi, and her kits, Magpie, Mist, Soot, and Pepper. Shortly after however, Crookedkit realizes that his heart lay with RiverClan, and he departs from the barn.

Apprentice

After returning to RiverClan, he has to wait much longer than an average cat has to to be apprenticed. Time passes in an uneventful fashion throughout his apprenticeship, except that Crookedpaw starts training with Mapleshade, a cat he believes is a StarClan warrior.

Warrior

Crookedpaw is thus named Crookedjaw, for obvious reasons.

Around this time, Hailstar launches an attack on WindClan for the return of two kits, Willowkit and Graykit, who had been born from a RiverClan queen, Fallowtail, and WindClan's deputy, Reedfeather.

The raid turns out to be successful, yet it almost ends in disaster when Reedfeather almost drowns in pursuit of his kits.

Leader

Crookedstar was leader of RiverClan in the first book.

His first deputy was Timberfur, then Oakheart who was killed. He agreed to allow ShadowClan to hunt in RiverClan territory since RiverClan warriors only hunted in the river not on the land.

He later did not want WindClan to return but agreed to bring them back since the forest needed four Clans. Then his daughter Silverstream fell in love with Graystripe. She did not tell him this.

He lead an attack on WindClan with the help of ShadowClan, but ThunderClan helped WindClan drive them off. A flood drove the Clan out of their camp, and Fireheart and Graystripe helped hunt for food for the Clan. After Silverstream died, Crookedstar wanted his grandchildren, and so, Graystripe and his two kits joined RiverClan.

Crookedstar died of greencough, and age. His deputy, Leopardfur, became leader after him. Crookedstar went to StarClan along with his daughter.
