"You! When all cats have closed eyes, we gave the gift of sight to the cat who is blind. You see more than most, but look inside, too. See your own strength."

Jayfeather is a mottled,[1] pale[2] gray tabby[3] tom[4] with blind,[5] pale[6] blue eyes like a jay's wing,[7] silky fur,[8] and a scar running down one side.[9]


Jaykit was born in ThunderClan. His mother was Leafpool and his father was Crowfeather, although he, like everyone else, believed that Squirrelflight and Bramblestar were his parents.

He had one sister named Hollykit and one brother named Lionkit. He was born blind but that didn't stop him from becoming an apprentice.


Jaypaw started to train as a warrior but StarClan told him that it was his destiny to become a Medicine Cat. He didn't want to be the Medicine Cat. He knew the ThunderClan territory like he can see.

He discovered that he part of an important prophecy saying that he and two other cats will "Hold the power of the stars in their paws."

He soon dicovered that he could feel other cats emotions and also walk in their dreams and memories. Jaypaw then traveled in the past to the tribe's time and meet Half Moon. Jaypaw soon started to have feelings for her as he led the ancient tribe to the moutains. However, Jaypaw was soon brought back to normal clan time. He soon became a medicine cat. 

Medicine Cat

Jaypaw became a full medicine cat known as Jayfeather.

A couple moons later, Jayfeather discovered that Squirrelflight and Bramblestar were not his parents, but Leafpool and Crowfeather were, making him half-clan.

Leafpool gave up her role on medicine cat, leaving Jayfeather as still medicine cat. Jayfeather's sister, Hollyleaf, soon ran away and disappeared, leaving Jayfeather upset.

He soon realized that there had to be a third cat in the prophecy, but Hollyleaf was gone. He and Lionblaze suspected one of Whitewing kits were the third cat, which was later found out to be Dovekit. Jayfeather once fought Breezepelt by the Moonpool to save a ThunderClan queen, Poppyfrost.

Jayfeather was the first to know about the prophecy by walking in Firestar's dreams. He was one of the three cats from the prophecy.

He also found out that Mothwing didn't believe in StarClan. During his second visit to the ancient tribe, Jayfeather taught the ancient tribe to be like the Tribe of Rushing Water. He soon refused to leave, saying that he wanted to stay with Half Moon, but he was still brought back to the clans.

Jayfeather was then told of a prophecy saying that he and the Three had to find a fourth cat in order to save the clans from the Dark Forest. During The Last Hope, The Dark Forest grew stronger and were ready to attack the clans and StarClan had broken up.

Jayfeather reunited StarClan together and found out that Firestar was the fourth cat. He and the rest of the clans fought The Dark Forest battle, winning. Firestar died though. Jayfeather and the three had saved the clans.


  • Jayfeather was born blind due to birth issues.
  • Jayfeather and the three have lost their powers in Dovewing's Silence.
  • Leafpool thought Jayfeather's blindness was a punishment from StarClan.
