Lionheart

"No! I will not lie for you! You might not want to be our leader anymore, but you could at least be brave enough to tell the Clan yourself. They deserve to know the truth, that you are leaving to become a kittypet."

—Lionpaw getting angry at Pinestar Code of the Clans, page 148

Lionheart is a pale[1] golden-brown tabby tom[2] with green eyes,[3] thick,[4] tufty fur,[5] and thicker fur around his neck.[4]

Kit

Lionkit was born with Goldenkit to Speckletail and Smallear. They were born in ThunderClan. Lionkit got his name since he sported a lionlike mane around his neck.

He and Goldenkit were born four moons after Bluekit and Snowkit. He and his sister grew into apprentices.

Apprentice

Pinestar was leader at the time, and he gave Lionpaw the mentor Swiftbreeze. Goldenpaw got her mentor named Dappletail. Lionpaw was a clever and smart cat who was also very curious. One day he followed Pinestar to see where he was going and saw him with a Twoleg.

He saw Pinestar taking food from the Twoleg. Lionpaw talked to his leader but Pinestar wasn't too angry and Lionpaw kept his secret. Pinestar decided to leave the Clan to go live as a kittypet.

He told Lionpaw to tell Sunfall that he would have named him Lionheart. Sunfall became ThunderClan's leader and gained the name Sunstar. Like Pinestar had wished, Sunstar gave Lionpaw the warrior name of Lionheart.

Warrior

Lionheart became a warrior. For a few moons he had no apprentices. He went on patrols and hunted for the Clan. Soon, Lionheart got his first apprentice named Graypaw. Sunstar died and Bluestar, formerly Bluefur, became leader and named Redtail deputy.

Lionheart accompanied Bluestar on a patrol and they saw a kittypet named Rusty, Bluestar asked if he wanted to join the Clan and gave him time to think about it. The next day Lionheart and Whitestorm went to get him and Rusty kept up.

Deputy

Rusty is named Firepaw and Lionheart and Tigerclaw both share training duties over him and their own apprentice. After Redtail died, Bluestar named Lionheart deputy. Ravenpaw seemed relieved that she didn't make Tigerclaw deputy.

The mentors took their apprentices around the territory. At Graypaw, Ravenpaw and Firepaw's first Gathering, Lionheart tells them abour the legendary Clans of the old days, LionClan, TigerClan and LeopardClan.

Littlepaw joined in the coversation and Lionheart thinks he is small for being six moons. When ShadowClan attacked ThunderClan, Lionheart died bravely in battle. Bluestar then had to name Tigerclaw as his successor.

StarClan

Lionheart appears as one of the StarClan members who gives Fireheart one of his nine lives. He was the first cat and he gave Fireheart the life of courage like a lion. He also appears during the Last Hope Battle fighting beside Firestar.

Trivia

  • Although Sunfall was Lionheart's mentor in Secrets of the Clans,[6] his mentor in Bluestar's Prophecy was Swiftbreeze.[7]
  • In The Elders' Concern, Lionheart was said to be the deputy before Firestar, even though Tigerstar became deputy after Lionheart died.[8]
  • In The Last Hope, it is said that he gave Firestar a life of justice,[9] when he really gave him a life of courage,[10] and Redtail gave him justice.[10]
  • Vicky has said on more than one occasion about the possibility of Lionheart fathering Frostfur's kits,[11][12] and at least once that Lionheart never fathered kits.[13] Although the latter comment has been proven false, as Lionheart is in fact the father of Cinderpelt, Brackenfur, Thornclaw, and Brightheart.[14]
  • Vicky has also said that Smallear may in fact be Lionheart and Goldenflower's father,[15] and this was later proven to be true.[16]
