Icewing is a pure white she-cat with blue eyes.[1]

Queen

She is first mentioned as a heavily pregnant queen. Icewing is seen at a Gathering, with Willowpaw fussing over her.

Later, after Icewing has her kits, she is seen when Hollypaw is in the RiverClan camp, listening to Mothwing telling her to keep one of her kits away from pine needles. In Dovewing's Silence, she moves back into the nursery.

The Clan leaders organize a meeting to discuss what to do with the former Dark Forest trainees. Icewing arrives at this meeting with Mistystar and Mothwing. Mistystar defends her warrior, insisting that Icewing knows her loyalty was tested and she failed. She has learned from this, and there’s no doubt now.

Mistystar says that Icewing has always been a good warrior and she’d like to give her a chance. The leaders agree that the former trainees will swear a new oath of loyalty to their own Clans, and they all head to their own camps to do so.

Warrior

In The Fourth Apprentice, she returns to her warrior duties.

After Mistyfoot announces the death of Leopardstar, she asks for a hunting patrol, and decides to take Icewing - but only if she feels like it. Icewing sniffs and states that of course she feels like it, saying that she was sick of being stuck in camp for three sunrises, so she would be more than ready.

Mistyfoot purrs with amusement, saying that she deserves all the rest she can get after traveling to the beavers' dam- which is actually a mistake, because Petalfur and Rippletail traveled to the dam, not Icewing. Mistyfoot adds that if she wants to go hunting, she can, as they'll be grateful for her sharp eyes.

Later, when Reedwhisker is briskly sorting out patrols, he wants to take his own patrol into the marshes and calls over Icewing and Pebblefoot after letting Mistystar tag along. When they are searching the ground, Icewing suddenly hisses as she sees a vole come out from some grass. She pounces milliseconds too late and the vole has a chance to scramble away from her while she trips on a muddy rut as well. Mistystar sees the vole coming towards her, and she traps the vole, killing it. Mistystar tells Icewing it was a group effort, and the white cat nods, out of breath.

After Mothwing argues with Mistystar about Hollowpaw and Rushpaw's whereabouts, Icewing is chosen, with Grasspelt and Mintfur, to join Mistystar's patrol to go upstream. Icewing asks if she wants them to set border marks, but Mistystar tells the cats not to, since they are just looking for food. When they set out, it is mentioned that Mistystar has to messily claw her way through the land, while Icewing fares better, since she is lighter and is able to leap well.

After Grasspelt hisses that there are kittypets, Icewing warns the patrol that there might be less prey thanks to them. Suddenly, Grasspelt hisses for them to follow him, and they do so to find a nest of mice. After Mistystar praises him, Grasspelt mews it can't replace a lake of fish; Icewing points out that it is a start.

Icewing and a few other Clan cats are training in the Dark Forest with Hawkfrost. When Ivypool sees her, she wonders why she was training in the Dark Forest, because she had seemed to be nice at Gatherings and looked friendly. When Hawkfrost asks a question, Icewing raises her tail and is the one to give the correct answer.

Icewing is seen in the Dark Forest with Beetlewhisker and Hollowflight when Brokenstar warns the Clan cats to be ready for the final signal.

When Ivypool questions Brokenstar under her breath in the Dark Forest, Icewing asks if she doubted Brokenstar's decisions.

At a Gathering, she nods to Ivypool. Lionblaze sees this and concludes that Icewing must be training in the Dark Forest.

She is seen suggesting that in the battle, they should scare the cats and then scar them. Beetlewhisker congratulates his Clanmate on this remark.

When Mothwing tells Jayfeather that some RiverClan cats are being argumentive, Icewing is one of the cats mentioned along with Hollowflight and Beetlewhisker.

When Dovewing sends out her special senses, she repeats Icewing's words to the Clan leaders and medicine cats. Icewing says that she'd rather train in her own Clan than in the Dark Forest. The leaders ask Dovewing who was the traitor, but Dovewing does not tell them it is Icewing when she sees her white pelt.

Later, when Dovewing is spying on the Dark Forest with her powers, she hears Icewing. She is telling the other cats training there to not let Tigerstar see that they're afraid, or else they'll never see their home again. Mapleshade asks why they aren't cheering for their leader, to which Icewing steadily responds that they are planning their strategy for the battle, though Mapleshade is not convinced.
