Shadepelt is a very dark gray she-cat.[1]


Shadepaw is Stonefur's apprentice. She is briefly seen on a patrol by Fireheart with her mentor and Silverstream. Stonefur picks up Fireheart's scent and looks around, but Fireheart quickly crawls into some bracken to escape from the patrol. Fireheart hears a splash and sees Silverstream swimming across the river. She tells him that he can come out from the bracken, as Stonefur and Shadepaw have left.

She is briefly seen in the manga fishing with Mosspaw. When her friend slips into the water, Shadepaw laughs at her, saying that Mosspaw should be catching the fish with her claws, not her teeth. Mosspaw irritably climbs out and tells her to be quiet. Shadepaw continues to snicker to herself, though.


She becomes a warrior in A Dangerous Path.

Leopardstar asks Shadepelt to send out hunting patrols before the battle with BloodClan, as they will need all the strength that they can get for the battle. As RiverClan and ShadowClan lead their battle patrols into the clearing, Mistyfoot is seen touching noses with Shadepelt.


She becomes an elder in Midnight.

Shadepelt is seen sitting beside Mothwing in the clearing where Mudfur is, looking at the medicine cat. Leopardstar tells Firestar that Shadepelt and Loudbelly, two of RiverClan's elders, will stay behind in RiverClan's camp, with two of ThunderClan's elders, Frostfur and Speckletail. Leopardstar also tells Firestar that Shadepelt and Loudbelly are too old to travel, and that they wish to stay behind and sit vigil for RiverClan's former medicine cat, Mudfur.
