"There is you, and there is still hope. You must fight for your Clan, Rowanstar."
— Beenose to Rowanstar in Darkest Night, page 301

Beenose is a sleek-furred,[9] plump white she-cat with black ears.[10]

Beenose was the daughter of Snowbird and Scorchfur, born along with her littermates Yarrowleaf and Bluebellkit. Along with the other ShadowClan apprentices, she scorned the warrior code and StarClan, defecting to join Darktail after Rowanstar's leadership proved ineffective during the Yellowcough Plague. However, she attempted to escape after witnessing the cruelty of the Kin but was discovered and drowned by Darktail. Her spirit left to join StarClan after she and the other fallen ShadowClan cats were summoned from the lake by Tree.

A Vision of Shadows

"I don't see the older cats earning any respect. All they do is hunt and sleep."
—Beepaw about the Clan elders Thunder and Shadow, page chapter 8
Beepaw is a ShadowClan apprentice under the mentorship of Dawnpelt. At a Gathering, she introduces herelf to Sparkpaw and Alderpaw of ThunderClan; however, she and the other ShadowClan apprentices startle them with their disrespect of the other Clans and disbelief in StarClan. When rebellion stirs among ShadowClan's apprentices, Beepaw harshly criticizes the need to respect elders, exclaiming that ShadowClan cats say what they want. While she does not initially defect to Darktail's group with Needlepaw, Juniperpaw, and Sleekpaw, she eventually leaves with her older sisters, Berryheart and Cloverfoot. During her time with them, the newly renamed Beenose catches yellowcough, and vanishes during the reign of the Kin. Her mother frantically explains that she had convinced Beenose and Berryheart to escape to ThunderClan, but they had never arrived.
When Tree summons the spirits of the fallen ShadowClan cats from the lake, Beenose is among them, reuiniting with her father, Scorchfur. She explains that because her missing sisters, Yarrowleaf and Berryheart, are not among them, they must be alive, further demanding that Tawnypelt and Rowanstar save ShadowClan. Her spirit then leaves to join StarClan.
