"We have to keep up our strength. There is still sickness in the air; no more cats must die. There is no need for them to spend all day looking at these fallen warriors. Keep them busy, but battle training would not be appropriate, I think."

Flowerstar is a ginger-and-white she-cat.[1]


She is first seen as Flowerstem, and is the first to find her leader-to-be, Brightwhisker, dead. Upon seeing this she goes to get the medicine cat, Redscar. She mourns Brightwhisker's death with her sister, Mossfire.

After Jumpfoot and Mossfire fight to the death, each wanting to be leader, Flowerstem alone is strong, even though she had just seen her sister killed. She comforts the Clan, weaving among them and offering advice.

She arranges a hunting patrol for the apprentices, stating that battle training would not be appropriate then. She also offers Redscar help with anything he needs with herbs and helping Clanmates.

Snowstar appears in a vision to Redscar, saying that he needs to choose a new leader, and that the new cat would have to choose a deputy at once. He suggests a law to the warrior code: deputies must be replaced by moonhigh, so a leader would never be left alone for more than half a day, due to the incident earlier.

Afterwards, when Snowstar asks Redscar who he'd chose as Clan leader, Redscar says Flowerstem, because she had watched her sister die before her eyes, but her only thoughts were to make her Clan feel safe again and keep them busy before that night's vigil. Snowstar agrees with Redscar's choice.

The Clan accepts Redscar's choice because of a prophecy Redscar created himself. The prophecy was a snowdrop flower's stem laying on the ground in camp.


When she is asked to become leader by Redscar, looking dazed, she says that she will be the best she can be, in honor of her sister's and Jumpfoot's memory.


Flowerstar is present at Tigerclaw's leadership ceremony, and is one of the cats who gives the ShadowClan cat a life, this one for placing his faith in StarClan, and letting them guide him when all seems lost.

She explains who she is, and how, like Tigerclaw, she had not been the deputy of ShadowClan when she assumed leadership of her Clan. She goes on to say that her medicine cat, Redscar, was the one who gave ShadowClan a sign from StarClan that predicted Flowerstar as leader— although Redscar later admits that he faked that sign, as ShadowClan needed a leader, so he gave them one.
