Thistleclaw

"You know what your problem is, Bluefur? You're soft. Soft on warriors from other Clans and soft on kittypets. I saw you talking to Oakheart at the Gathering. Do you care about your Clan at all?"

—Thistleclaw quarreling with Bluefur Bluestar's Prophecy, page 379

Thistleclaw is a spiky-furred,[1] dark[2] gray-and-white[1] tabby[2] tom with gray patches mottling his white face,[3] white shoulders, sharp[3] amber eyes,[4] long, yellow teeth,[5] and a long tail.[3]

Kit

Thistlekit was born to Windflight and Poppydawn on ThunderClan. His littermates were Rosekit and Sweetkit. Snowkit and Bluekit became apprentices before him, which angered him.

Apprentice

Not much is known except that Snowpaw took a liking to him and often trained with him.

Warrior

He earned his warrior name some time after. He took Snowfur as a mate. Bluefur was not happy with Snowfur's choice of mate. After his mate, Snowfur, died on the Thunderpath, he blamed Bluefur for her death. He was with Whitekit, his son, there was a prophecy meaning that Whitekit should stay away from him, and after that, Bluefur takes Whitekit off him.

He was given Tigerpaw as his apprentice. Later, he finds Tiny and Tigerpaw attacks him. He later attacks Oakheart. Bluefur attacks Thistleclaw, but since she is pregnant, she is weaker than Thistleclaw and because of this, Thistleclaw defeats her easily. He then doubts that Bluefur has loyalty to the Clan for defending Oakheart. Oakheart takes this chance while they are talking and escapes.

Some time when Bluefur was leader, he is slayed by a RiverClan patrol. He went to StarClan. Unfortunately, when Bluestar died, she chased Thistleclaw out, thus ending up in the Dark Forest.
