"Not anymore. My place is in the gorge from now on. My family needs me, and this is where I belong. The Clan united against those rogues. We proved that no cat is going to leave the gorge, not until StarClan calls them. If the future of SkyClan is here, so is mine."
— Billystorm about deciding to live in the gorge in After the Flood, page 86

Billystorm is a ginger-and-white tom[1] with leaf-green eyes[7] and a broad face.[8]

Billystorm, also a kittypet named Billy, was a daylight-warrior of SkyClan. He initially mentored Snookpaw, and later, Pebblepaw. Billystorm becomes mates with Leafstar, and after the birth of their kits, Firekit, Stormkit, and Harrykit, he decides to forgo his kittypet lifestyle and become a permanent member of the Clan. He frequently consoles and advises Leafstar when trouble approaches, and participates on a journey to find ThunderClan. He is killed by badgers, however, and his abrupt death remains a hard topic for Leafstar thereafter.

"I have no more to lose than any of my Clanmates. We all have something precious that we risk losing every time we fight."
—Billystorm to Leafstar SkyClan's Destiny, page 419
In SkyClan's Destiny, Billystorm is a daylight-warrior: a warrior who participates in the Clan during the day, but returns to his Twolegs at night. Leafstar's addition of the daylight-warriors is a subject of oppose, particularly with the other warriors. Nonetheless, Leafstar grants him an apprentice, Snookpaw, another daylight-warrior. Regardless of his Clanmates' begrudges, Billystorm is a loyal and dutiful warrior of SkyClan, and even participates on a short journey to help Stick and his cats in a far away Twolegplace. He opens Leafstar's eyes to kittypets, and the two grow close, despite Echosong's initial concerns about Leafstar's duties as Clan leader if she chooses to have kits.
In Hawkwing's Journey, his kits are now warriors, and Billystorm continues to console and advise Leafstar. He mentors another apprentice, Pebblepaw, and is chosen to lead a patrol to find ThunderClan. Billystorm is killed by badgers, and the group decides to bury him where he'd fallen and abort the mission. Her mate's death effects Leafstar hard, and his death remained a difficult subject for sometime.

SkyClan and the Stranger

"Don't worry. We'll rebuild the dens. SkyClan will survive."
—Billystorm comforting Leafstar after the flood Beyond the Code, page 89
Billystorm becomes mates with Leafstar, and is shown as a doting and loving father to their kits: Firekit, Stormkit, and Harrykit. He becomes frantic when his mate and kits are taken by an elderly Twoleg, and assists with the rescue. After the gorge floods, Billystorm considers taking his kits to stay with his Twoleg. When Leafstar discovers this, she banishes him temporarily from SkyClan. After Sol kidnaps his kits, Billystorm decides to remain in SkyClan permanently, choosing to put his new family first.

Trivia

Mistakes

  • He has been mistakenly described with amber eyes several times.[9][10][11]
  • In The Ultimate Guide, it is mistakenly said that Billystorm decided to stay in the gorge and become a full SkyClan warrior after rescuing his kits from the elderly Twoleg's den.[12] In the manga, After the Flood, he decides to stay after SkyClan finds that Sol was hiding the kits, which happened a while after rescuing the kits from the Twoleg.[13]

Quotes

Leafstar: "Don't you miss being outside, under all this sky, with the wind and the scent of trees in your fur?"
Billystorm: "Yes. But I get to feel it every day when I come here. It's not a hardship for me to be in my Twolegs' nest. I love my housefolk, and they love me."
—After escaping Snookpaw's owners nest SkyClan's Destiny, page chapter 18


"I thought I meant something to you more than just a Clanmate. But you won't let yourself get close to me because you think I'm just a kittypet, don't you?"
—Billystorm to Leafstar SkyClan's Destiny, page 327


Billystorm: "Why? Because I'm half kittypet? But I'm half warrior, too. And when I'm here, I'm all warrior. As one of your warriors, I wish to help these cats."
Leafstar: "What about your housefolk?"
Billystorm: "You mean if I don't come back? I have no more to lose than any of my Clanmates. We all have something precious that we risk losing every time we fight."
—Billystorm arguing that he should be allowed to go on the trip to the Twolegplace SkyClan's Destiny, page 419

"I'm a loyal SkyClan warrior, Leafstar. But I'm a father, too. And I can't leave my kits in danger. Besides...I've heard what some of the other cats are saying. Soon, there might not be a Clan to be loyal to."
—Billystorm when Leafstar confronts him After the Flood, page 37


Leafstar: "Billystorm...I truly am sorry about this..."
Billystorm: "Have I said I blame you?"
Leafstar: "No. But you said they wouldn't be safe in the gorge and you were right."
Billystorm: "Look, Leafstar...maybe it's...maybe they wandered off because they were trying to find me. Because I...you know. Stopped coming around. This could all be my fault."
Leafstar: "No, it's mine...I'm the one who told you to leave."
Billystorm: "But I'm their father! That shouldn't have stopped me from seeing them!"
