"We can't trust them! Let WindClan set one paw over our border, and they'll be taking our prey as well as our water."
— Blackclaw to Leopardstar at a Gathering in Midnight, page 47

Blackclaw is a lean,[14] smoky-black tom.[2]

Blackkit is born to Shimmerpelt and Piketooth of RiverClan, along with his sister, Skykit. After the death of Brightsky, Blackkit gains her sole surviving kit, Leopardkit as an adopted sister. With the rest of RiverClan, he spoils her out of pity. Soon, he is appointed as an apprentice, called Blackpaw, gaining the RiverClan leader, Hailstar as his mentor. Then he becomes known as Blackclaw, proving to be a head-strong and aggressive warrior. He goes on the Great Journey.

At some point, he becomes mates with Mistyfoot and father to Reedwhisker, Pikepaw, Primrosepaw, and Perchkit. For unknown reasons, only Reedwhisker survives to warriorhood. Blackclaw thinks Hawkfrost is the rightful Deputy when he briefly appointed, so helps spread false rumors about the current deputy, Mistyfoot. After Hawkfrost's death, Blackclaw continued to serve a simple loyal warrior, eventually retiring to become an elder. After a drought at the Lake Territories, Blackclaw dies of thirst and hunger alongside few of his Clanmates. He goes to StarClan.
