Ferncloud is a lightly-framed,[1] pale gray she-cat with darker flecks and pale green eyes.[2]

Kit

Fernkit was born in ThunderClan to Brindleface and an unknown father. Her brother was Ashpaw. They weren't mentioned much as kits. Fernkit had two litter-mates that died of Greencough, and her foster brother was Cloudkit.

Apprentice

Fernpaw's first mentor was Darkstripe. When the dog pack attacked the camp, Fernpaw and Ashpaw were sent to distract the dogs because they were the fastest runners. Ashpaw became Dustpelt's apprentice but it was clear that she likes her brother's mentor.

After Darkstripe was kicked out of ThunderClan, Fernpaw's new mentor became Longtail, however Dustpelt had asked to mentor her. Firestar responded that he already had Ashpaw, and that he would be too soft on Fernpaw. So he made Longtail be her mentor since he had no apprentice since Swiftpaw.

Queen

Ferncloud became a warrior and soon, she and Dustpelt became mates. They had five currently dead kits Hollykit, Larchkit, Shrewpaw, Icecloud, and Foxleap. Her surviving kits are Spiderleg, and Birchfall. Shrewpaw was run over by a monster. Hollykit and Larchkit starved.

Foxleap died of his wounds from the great battle. Icecloud died of a deadly outbreak of greencough, along with Hazeltail and Toadstep. Ferncloud dies in The Last Hope, when Brokenstar kills her.

Trivia

  • In the family tree on the official Warriors site, it states that Whitestorm is the mate to Brindleface, and father to Ashfur and Ferncloud.[3] This tree was however confirmed not to be canon, and therefore it's unconfirmed whether he truly has any relation to them.[4]
    • However, on Vicky's Facebook page, she says that Whitestorm could actually be their father.[5]
  • Vicky also said that she thinks Runningwind is Ferncloud and Ashfur's father.[6]
  • Vicky revealed that Ferncloud's death was the result of fan complaints. Ferncloud was placed into battle, due to Vicky believing that she was capable of fighting just as well as any warrior. Her fierce protection of young Clan cats is what put her in the thick of battle, in the defense of the nursery.[7]
