"Joining the Dark Forest was the biggest mistake I could have made. I... I'm not sure I can forgive myself."
— Blossomfall to Dovewing about joining the Dark Forest in Dovewing's Silence, chapter 8

Blossomfall is a long and thick-furred[12] tortoiseshell-and-white she-cat with petal-shaped white patches.[1]

Blossomfall is a ThunderClan warrior that has served under Firestar's, Bramblestar's, the impostor's, and Squirrelflight's leaderships in the lake territories. She was born as Blossomkit to Millie and Graystripe along with her siblings; Briarkit and Bumblekit. She became apprenticed as Blossompaw, under the mentorship of Hazeltail. When a beech tree crushed Briarpaw's spine, Blossompaw was visibly jealous of the attention Briarpaw received from their mother. Even when she became a warrior named Blossomfall, she felt particularly neglected by her mother, and the dark thoughts she had on the matter led her to train in the Dark Forest, where she gained attention. There, she was trained by Brokenstar, Hawkfrost, and eventually Ivypool.

During the battle against the Dark Forest, Blossomfall was convinced by Ivypool that their loyalty should stay with the Clans. Blossomfall, feeling horrible, fought for ThunderClan and was eventually forgiven by the rest of the Clans for training in the Dark Forest. Later, she mentored Hollytuft and gave birth to Thornclaw's kits, Stemkit, Plumkit, Eaglekit and Shellkit. Later on, she, along with several ThunderClan cats, were exiled by Bramblestar's impostor after they stood up to him, but returned when Squirrelflight became ThunderClan's acting leader.

Power of Three

"You should have named Blossomkit Squealkit, because that’s all she does!"

Omen of the Stars

"This is just the way it is now. I’d better get used to it. At least I get noticed in the Dark Forest."
—Blossomfall to Ivypool Sign of the Moon, page 255
Blossompaw is now an apprentice, Hazeltail being her mentor. During her final assessment, Blossompaw is paired to hunt with Ivypaw, and passes, along with her siblings. She and her family worry over Briarpaw, after a tree falls and cripples her. She eventually has her warrior ceremony and is named Blossomfall. Millie becomes absorbed with Briarlight, and gives her other two kits less attention, ultimately seeming to not care for them as much. Blossomfall feels neglected by her mother and her jealousy grows, leading her into the clutches of the Dark Forest, where she begins training and receives attention. She later confesses this to Ivypool when they get lost in the tunnels, and states she feels guilty and deserves the Dark Forest. During the Great Battle, Ivypool convinces Blossomfall and the other trainees to turn against the Place of No Stars and fight for the Clans.

A Vision of Shadows

Blossomfall has become mates with Thornclaw and they have four kits, Eaglekit, Shellkit, Stemkit, and Plumkit. As Briarlight is dying, Blossomfall and the rest of her kin are with her. During her vigil, Blossomfall says she hopes her kits will inherit some of their aunt's optimism and determination. Her kits are later made into apprentices and Blossomfall returns to her warrior duties.

The Broken Code

Her kits have since become warriors. She objects to the impostor's new rule of having leaders eat first, citing that they have always fed the queens and elders before anyone else. After Graystripe exposes the impostor to the rest of ThunderClan, Blossomfall joins him, Bumblestripe, and several others in being exiled from ThunderClan, but ultimately rejoin after Squirrelflight becomes ThunderClan's acting leader.

Blossomfall: "Why should they? We won. What else should we be doing?"
Ivypaw: "We should be learning how we could have fought better."
Blossomfall: "But we won!"

"I don't know how loners and rogues manage on their own, do you, Dovewing?"
—Blossomfall on being a warrior Sign of the Moon, page 82

"No. A good cat wouldn't be jealous of an injured littermate. So that's why I've ended up in the Dark Forest. I'm not stupid. I know it's where cats go if they're not allowed into StarClan. But I guess I won't get into StarClan either, because I hate my sister for being injured. So the Dark Forest is where I fit in, and I'm getting good training, better than anything we get here."
—Blossomfall explaining to Ivypool Sign of the Moon, page 246

"Whatever. This is the way it is now. I'd better get used to it. At least I get noticed in the Dark Forest."

  1. It is unclear if Blossomfall mentored Hollytuft, or if it is a mistake. While Bramblestar's Storm states that Hollytuft's mentor was Cloudtail, The Apprentice's Quest states that Hollytuft was trained by Blossomfall. Hollytuft is listed under both cats due to not knowing which is the error and which is canon.
