"Emberkit may have been spared of future suffering. We live in the wild. Life is tough. Maybe it's best only the strongest kits survive."

Emberkit is a brown-and-white tabby[1] tom[2] with white underbelly[3] and feather-soft fur.[4]

StarClan Resident

He died one day after his birth, and was buried outside a of a hollow. Now, Turtle Tail takes care of him in StarClan.


  • Emberkit's name being a single word compared to the two-word names of the Tribe cats was a mistake on Kate's part. She believes that due to dying so young, it was hard to give him a name, and thought she was thinking of dying embers when she named him.[5]
    • Despite the fact that he was named before the creation of the Clans, he had a name that would be suitable for a Clan cat.[4]
  • If he were still alive, Kate thinks he would have been called Ember Heart.[6]
