"All of SkyClan needs to believe that we have a future. If this isn't the right lake, then we have to believe we will find the right one, where the other Clans live. If we don't find it soon, surely StarClan will send us a sign..."
— Blossomheart to Hawkwing in Hawkwing's Journey, page 325

Blossomheart is a fluffy[8] ginger-and-white she-cat.[1]

Blossomheart is a SkyClan warrior under Leafstar's leadership in the gorge and the lake territories. She was one of four kits born to Sharpclaw and Cherrytail, along with Cloudmist, Hawkwing and Duskpaw. As an apprentice, Blossompaw was mentored by Bouncefire and she grieved for Duskpaw's death. She earned her warrior name, Blossomheart and fought for SkyClan when Darktail and his rogues exiled them.

Cherrytail and Cloudmist decided to stay with Barley at his farm. Blossomheart and Hawkwing confided in one another during SkyClan's journey to find ThunderClan. SkyClan settled in their new home at the lake, and Blossomheart is made the mentor to Finpaw. While Twigpaw and Finpaw defected to ThunderClan, Blossomheart was given her second apprentice of Pigeonpaw and later Turtlepaw.

A Vision of Shadows

Hawkwing: "You can't live for the past and hide from the future."
Blossomheart: "Your Clan needs you. We need you."
—Hawkwing and Blossomheart to Cherrytail and Cloudmist Darkest Night, page chapter 9
Upon arriving to the lake, Blossomheart is introduced to her nieces Twigpaw and Violetpaw, and both of them are happy about meeting their aunt and father, Hawkwing. She joins Hawkwing's patrol to find missing SkyClan cats and is happy when they encounter Cloudmist and Cherrytail. She and Hawkwing convince them to return to SkyClan, having found the other Clans. However, Blossomheart's apprentice, Finpaw, leaves SkyClan to be with Twigpaw in ThunderClan, and is instead given Pigeonpaw as an apprentice.

The Broken Code

"Most mentors are like that. You should have heard Blossomheart when I first became her apprentice. I thought I would never do anything right!"
―Turtlepaw about Blossomheart Lost Stars, page 95
Pigeonpaw has now become a warrior, Pigeonfoot, and Blossomheart has been given Turtlepaw as her third apprentice. After Turtlecrawl becomes a warrior, Blossomheart participates in a secret meeting between the Clans about Bramblestar's behavior. She expresses her concerns that Leafstar never changed after she lost a life, and learns of the impostor.

Blossomheart: "Do you think we'll ever find Barley? We've been traveling for days and days. I didn't get the impression that it took Barley that long to get to us when he and Ravenpaw brought Bellaleaf and Rileypool to SkyClan."
Hawkwing: "You may be right. Rileypool and Bellaleaf were very young when they made the journey. I wonder if they really remember the way."
Blossomheart: "Well, they know to follow the river. That's easy enough. But I don't think Barley lives on the riverbank. So at some point we have to leave it, and maybe Bellaleaf and Rileypool don't remember where. We could have already come too far."
—Blossomheart and Hawkwing expressing doubt about the journey to find Barley Hawkwing's Journey, page 269
In Hawkwing's Journey, she is a SkyClan apprentice under Bouncefire and Hawkpaw's sister, and the two get along better than Hawkpaw does with Duskpaw or Cloudpaw. When her other littermates go out with Pebblepaw to eat Twoleg food, she disagrees and stays with Hawkpaw. However, when Duskpaw dies, she grieves for him and feels bad that he is no longer with her, Hawkwing, or Cloudmist to become a warrior. When SkyClan is forced out of the gorge, she and Hawkwing stick together, and learn of Sharpclaw's death. Cloudmist and their mother, Cherrytail, decide to stay with Barley, Hawkwing and Blossomheart try to convince them otherwise, but to avail. During the journey, she and Hawkwing often confide in one another, and she expresses doubt that SkyClan could ever find a home again. She is later made the mentor to Finpaw.

Blossomheart is a sensible,[17] courageous, and skillful she-cat.[18] She is bright, brave,[19] and eager to do new things, always trying to stay optimistic through hard times.[20]



"Hawkwing, that was good advice you gave Curlypaw. I’ve noticed you’ve not been yourself lately. Of course, you have good reasons, but you can’t live your whole life like that. You have to believe what you told Curlypaw, too. You’ve got your whole life ahead of you, you know?"
―Blossomheart confronting Hawkwing Hawkwing's Journey, page 324
When their patrol was attacked by a swarm of badgers, Hawkwing fought viciously to defend his sister, determined not to lose another littermate.[21] The siblings reminisced about the gorge together on their journey to the lake after being driven out by Darktail, and her brother's romance with Pebbleshine amused her.[22] When Hawkwing became depressed after his mate's death, Blossomheart worried heavily for her brother, especially when he refused to eat, and encouraged him to recover from the loss.[23] Later, as Blossomheart became terribly ill, Hawkwing stayed by his sister's side, terrified to lose the only littermate he had left.[24]

Cherrytail, Sharpclaw, Cloudmist, and Duskpaw

"I’m so glad we’re all together again. Hawkwing and I have been so worried."
―Blossomheart to Cherrytail and Cloudmist after SkyClan is driven from the gorge Hawkwing's Journey, page 223
Blossomheart has a good relationship with her family and likes to spend time with them. As an apprentice, she chose not to take part in Duskpaw and Cloudpaw's plans to steal Twoleg food,[17] though she misses her brother after this behavior caused his death, and wishes he could have lived to become a warrior.[25] When Cherrytail and Cloudmist decided to stay at Barley's farm rather than follow SkyClan in search of the other Clans, Blossomheart was distraught, and insisted to her mother that she and her siblings still needed her.[22] Her relationship with her father, Sharpclaw, is mostly unknown, but Blossomheart was saddened by his death and comforted Hawkwing when he blamed their father's death on himself.[26]


"Hawkwing felt especially sorry for Pebblepaw, who stumbled along in a daze, as if she was overwhelmed by mourning and her sense of guilt. Blossomheart padded alongside her, silently offering her sympathy and support."
―Blossomheart supporting Pebblepaw Hawkwing's Journey, page 88
Blossomheart and Pebbleshine were close friends who trained together as apprentices. They bonded together on their journey to find the other Clans, though when Darktail's directions lead the patrol into a mess of badger dens and Pebblepaw's mentor, Billystorm, was killed, Blossomheart helped her friend grieve.[21] When Pebblepaw stopped eating after his death, Blossomheart encouraged her to push past her grief in order to take care of herself.[27] When Pebbleshine, pregnant with Hawkwing's kits, devised a plan to steal chickens from a Twoleg monster, Blossomheart urged her to be careful, and yowled in horror as she was taken away, never to be seen again.[28]



"And I found the longest stick! Blossompaw helped me carry it."
―Bella about Blossompaw Ravenpaw's Farewell, page chapter 10

Blossomheart: "Ooh, look! That cloud up there — it looks just like cat with a long curly tail!"
Hawkwing: "I don’t see why you’re in such high spirits. Not after everything that’s happened."
—Blossomheart being criticized by her brother Hawkwing's Journey, page chapter 5

"Look, Hawkwing. I brought you this shrew [...] Hawkwing! You haven’t eaten for days. You can’t go on like this. Please . . ."
―Blossomheart to Hawkwing after Pebbleshine is taken Hawkwing's Journey, page chapter 26

Leafstar: "I see! A leaf with five points—and including SkyClan, there are five Clans! We are on the right track. StarClan wants us to find the Clans."
Blossomheart: "That's all very well, but that's what we already thought they meant. And it doesn't tell us exactly what to do."
—Leafstar and Blossomheart discussing one of Echosong's visions Hawkwing's Journey, page 420
