Molepaw is a black[1] tom[2] with pale gray paws and muzzle.[3]


Molekit, along with his siblings, Cinderkit, Poppykit, and Honeykit, are born to Sorreltail and Brackenfur of ThunderClan. Although Cinderpelt, ThunderClan's medicine cat, dies to protect them during a badger attack on their camp, Leafpool arrives at the right time and helps Sorreltail safely deliver her kits.

After the badger attack, Leafpool mentions to Brackenfur that he has four healthy kits. At the mention of this, Brackenfur curls his tail in delight, and he dashes off into the nursery to see them.

His mother remarks that he is the only tom, and he is said to be the biggest of her litter.


In The Sight, he becomes an apprentice.

While reflecting upon the harshness of the recent leaf-bare, it is mentioned that the season brought not only hunger, but death as well.


Molepaw is said to have died of a cough that had not responded to Leafpool's herbs, and that Rainwhisker, one of his uncles, had been killed by a falling branch during a storm.

When his sisters, Honeypaw and Poppypaw, get ready for their warrior ceremony, Sorreltail sadly remarks that her son, Molepaw, should have been there as well, receiving his warrior name.

When Honeyfern is bitten by a snake, Sorreltail mournfully yowls that she can't lose another kit, after losing Molepaw when he was so young.

While Lionblaze and Cinderheart are talking about how Ivypaw and Dovepaw have fallen out, Cinderheart sadly reflects on the times where she used to argue with Molepaw and Honeyfern, while they were alive.
