Hopekit

"I tried as long as I could, licking and licking her, but her breathing only got shallower and shallower, until finally it stopped altogether. [...] I buried my nose in her fur, feeling grief crash down on me. It was a clear sign from StarClan. These kits should never have been born."

Hopekit is a she-kit[1] with an unknown description.

Kit

Yellowfang gives birth to three kits in the hollow of a dead tree, two she-kits and a tom. The other she-kit was born dead. While the tom lets out an angry wail when his mother touches him, Hopekit only whimpers quietly and moves her paws slightly.

StarClan

Yellowfang continues to lick the she-kit, but her breathing continues to get shallower until she too dies. Yellowfang buries her two dead daughters deep in the ground, so no fox, badger, or cat would ever find them.

At the half-moon gathering of the medicine cats, Silverflame comes to Yellowfang. Yellowfang asks if she knew about the kits and Silverflame replies that she did, on the night Yellowfang was made a medicine cat, three kits appeared behind her. As Silverflame is about to leave, Yellowfang asks about her daughters and looks around, finally spotting them. She tries to run towards them, but her legs are useless and she soon wakes up back at the Moonstone.
