"You have suffered much and lost much, and yet you still serve your Clanmates, putting their needs before yours, willing to sacrifice all for the sake of your Clan."
Sunstar telling Bluefur why he chose her to be his deputy in Bluestar's Prophecy, page 496

Bluestar is a large,[14] lithe,[15] pale[16] blue-gray she-cat[2] with luminous,[1] ice[17]-blue eyes.[18] She has thick,[19] long,[20] soft,[21] fur and a broad face,[22] head,[23] and shoulders,[24] with a scar that parts the fur across them,[14] and a torn ear.[25] She has a silver-tinted muzzle[2] and a long, sleek[26] tail.[11]

Bluekit is born to Moonflower and Stormtail of ThunderClan, along with her sister Snowkit. As kits, she and Snowkit are curious and frequently get into trouble. Bluekit becomes an apprentice alongside her sister and takes the name Bluepaw. Her mentor is Stonepelt. The medicine cat and Bluepaw's kin, Goosefeather, claims that he saw a bad omen on the vole that was Snowpaw's first catch. He warns Pinestar that ThunderClan must attack WindClan, or they will be destroyed. Pinestar leads his Clan into battle, and Bluepaw and Snowpaw join the patrol to be messengers rather than participating in the fight. Goosefeather also warns ThunderClan to destroy WindClan's medicine supply. When Moonflower attempts to do so, she is killed by the WindClan medicine cat Hawkheart. Bluepaw and Snowpaw witness the whole scene and are left horrified. Bluepaw is especially shaken by her mother's death and falls into a depressed state. Her mentor, Stonepelt, is also badly injured in the battle and he retires to the elder's den. Bluepaw is assigned a new mentor, Sunfall.

Sunfall helps Bluepaw enjoy her apprentice tasks again after she is resentful towards everything and everyone for a period of time. It is after a battle with RiverClan that Goosefeather reveals to Bluepaw a prophecy: she will blaze through the forest like fire, but warns her that water can quench fire. Bluepaw and Snowpaw later become warriors, and she is given the warrior name Bluefur.

Bluefur finds Oakheart at Sunningrocks and attempts to chase him away. After interacting with him, she finds that the RiverClan warrior is always on her mind, and she begins to fall in love with him. She shows disdain towards her sister's choice of mate, Thistleclaw, and is appalled when Snowfur announces she is having his kits. After Snowfur is killed by a Twoleg monster, Bluefur becomes a foster parent to her sister's kit, Whitekit, and provides him with love and emotional support. Bluefur once again becomes estranged from her Clan in her grief. Sunstar gently helps her overcome the loss of her sister, like he did with Moonflower's death.

Although she is aware that she's breaking the warrior code, Bluefur meets with Oakheart in secret. Bluefur later finds out that she's expecting Oakheart's kits and her Clanmate Thrushpelt covers for her, because he is in love with her. She later gives birth to Mistykit, Stonekit, and Mosskit. When Tawnyspots becomes sick and frail, Thistleclaw begins to set his sights on becoming deputy. Goosefeather pushes Bluefur to become deputy instead of Thistleclaw, claiming ThunderClan would be doomed due to Thistleclaw's violent and bloodthirsty nature. Bluefur therefore takes her kits to their father in RiverClan, but the leaf-bare cold is too much for Mosskit, who dies on the journey to RiverClan. Bluefur grieves heavily for her daughter, but gets Mistykit and Stonekit to Oakheart safely. She returns to ThunderClan and announces that a fox took her kits, and she is devastated by their loss. Bluefur is given her first apprentice, Frostpaw.

After giving up her kits, Bluefur is appointed deputy by Sunstar. When he passes, she inherits his role as leader and during her nine lives ceremony, Snowfur tells her that this was her destiny, and that StarClan does not regret picking her to be a leader. She is renamed as Bluestar and appoints Redtail as her deputy, and leads her Clan smoothly, until Spottedleaf reveals a prophecy that fire alone can save ThunderClan.

Heeding Spottedleaf's prophecy, she invites a young kittypet named Rusty to join her Clan, believing his bright orange pelt was what the prophecy was referring to. During this time, Oakheart and Redtail die in a battle against Sunningrocks, and Tigerclaw informs her of this. In her sudden grief, she promotes Lionheart to be her new deputy, and also gives Rusty - now Firepaw - herself as a mentor. When Lionheart dies fighting ShadowClan warriors, she reluctantly makes Tigerclaw deputy, and gives Firepaw his warrior name, Fireheart.

Fireheart grows very close to Bluestar, often helping her with her duties and comforting her. After Tigerclaw tries to kill Bluestar so that he can become leader, she is shaken to her roots, and becomes paranoid and distrusting of every cat. Fireheart takes on several of her responsibilities as well as his own. As her mental health continues to deteriorate, Fireheart slowly slips into the leader position. He encourages her to not lose faith in their warrior ancestors after she curses StarClan.

When Tigerstar tries to lead a pack of dogs to ravage ThunderClan, his plans are discovered and thwarted by the Clan. Bluestar plays an essential role by saving Fireheart from the pack leader and sends herself and the dog plummeting over the edge of the gorge. She is overtaken by the river and drowns. However, she washes up on the shore barely alive and her kits, Mistyfoot and Stonefur, as well as Fireheart come to be with her in her last moments. She reconciles with her kits and tells Fireheart he will become a great leader. She dies and Oakheart comes to take her to StarClan, where they reunite again as mates.


In the Super Editions

Moth Flight's Vision

In the prologue, Bluestar is seen in Moth Flight's dream losing a life after a fight. Firepaw, Graypaw, Ravenpaw, and Tigerclaw, all nameless, are waiting for her. The four ThunderClan cats wait for her to revive and after a while, her tail twitches. She comes back to life and is seen speaking to Firepaw.
In Moth Flight's dream of the Moonstone, she is seen being escorted by Featherwhisker to the cavern. She touches her nose to the Moonstone and goes to sleep. She is then seen receiving her first two lives from the spirit cats.

Crookedstar's Promise

Crookedpaw first sees Bluepaw at a Gathering, where they begin a friendly conversation, but they are often hushed by both Bluepaw and Crookedpaw's Clanmates. Bluepaw at first doesn't know who the tom is, but he introduces himself as Crookedpaw. She's at first startled by the way Crookedpaw's jaw is, but apologizes for staring when Crookedpaw starts to feel down about it. They start to talk. Bluepaw tells him who the medicine cats and leaders were, telling him that Hawkheart killed her mother, and they joke about Stonetooth, ShadowClan's retiring deputy. When a breeze ruffles the cats, Crookedpaw presses his pelt against Bluepaw's, startling her.
ThunderClan and RiverClan have a battle over Sunningrocks. Bluepaw sees Crookedpaw, thinking he's not going to attack, but Crookedpaw makes it clear that they are enemies now, lunges at her, and they end up tumbling down the side of Sunningrocks. Crookedpaw hesitates and Bluepaw swipes at his nose. Not knowing that she is missing her shot, Crookedpaw lunges at her again and this time holds her down. Bluepaw yowls in pain but Crookedpaw refuses to let go. Then Bluepaw's sister, Snowpaw, joins in the battle and fights with Bluepaw against Crookedpaw. Bluepaw and Snowpaw end up winning the fight. She is also seen at a Gathering, scowling when Oakheart jumps onto the Highrock.
Bluepaw and Crookedpaw reunite at a Gathering— Crookedpaw is now Crookedjaw, and Bluepaw is now Bluefur. Bluefur knows jokingly how Crookedjaw got his name, and when Crookedjaw questions her, she tells him that his tail's still straight, due to an earlier joke when they first met each other.
Moons pass, and Crookedjaw is now RiverClan's deputy. Crookedjaw sees her when Bluefur is on the patrol to take Sunningrocks back from RiverClan without a fight. He notices Bluefur and Whitestorm are whispering to each other. Afterward, Ottersplash voices her concerns, noticing that Oakheart was talking with her. Crookedjaw dismisses this, stating that Oakheart was probably asking Bluefur what was going on. When casually asking Oakheart about the patrol, Oakheart doesn't mention talking to Bluefur. Crookedjaw suspects that Oakheart thinks a conversation with a ThunderClan warrior wasn't worth mentioning.
Mapleshade reveals that the two kits apparently found by Graypool are Oakheart's kits, and that of a ThunderClan warrior. The leader Crookedstar questions Oakheart about this, and he admits that they are, in fact, his and Bluefur's kits, and that she gave them up to be ThunderClan deputy, since she couldn't let Thistleclaw take over the position. Crookedstar feels guilty about this, as he knew Thistleclaw was being trained in the Dark Forest, and wonders if he could've told Sunstar, enabling Bluefur to keep her kits.

Bluestar's Prophecy

Bluestar appears in the prologue during the dog pack's attack on ThunderClan where she saves Fireheart from the leader of the Pack by knocking him into the gorge, but she also falls in and nearly drowns. She hears Oakheart teaching her how to swim long enough to get to their kits, Mistyfoot and Stonefur. She apologizes and soon after they forgive her, she dies shortly after talking to Fireheart— who would succeed her and become Firestar.
Bluekit and Snowkit are born to Moonflower and Stormtail. Bluekit finally opens her eyes, after a lot of commotion from Swiftbreeze and Snowkit about why she hasn't. She and Snowkit go out of the nursery for the first time. Bluekit sticks her nose in the fresh kill pile and causes a dead squirrel to fall on her. Two warriors start laughing and commenting they've never seen a fresh kill attack a cat before. Bluekit is embarrassed. They later meet up with Patchkit and Leopardkit. The two older kits show them around the camp and take them to the apprentices' den where they start to talk with Dapplepaw. Not much later, Leopardkit, Patchkit and Dapplepaw start worrying about where the two kits went. Dapplepaw later takes Leopardkit and Patchkit to Sandy Hollow. Bluekit and Snowkit wander off to the warriors den, and wake Stonepelt, who quickly becomes annoyed and complains that they woke him from a well-earned rest. He quickly shoos them out of the warriors' den. Bluekit finds a lichen den shortly after a quarrel with Snowkit, and she goes into it. It appears to be Pinestar, the leader of ThunderClan's, den. Featherwhisker, the medicine cat apprentice, sees Bluekit and calls her out, and brings both her and Snowkit to the elders' den. The two young kits speak to the elders until Larksong comments that Snowkit looks tired.
The next day, Moonflower takes her kits to meet Stormtail, their father. They wait in camp for a long time until he comes back from hunting. He admires his kits, complimenting that they look better with their eyes open. Stormtail, later starts to part from them when he announces that Pinestar wants to share prey with him. Bluekit asks if she can come too, but Stormtail is uncomfortable, saying that kits should stay near the nursery. Stormtail growls that he had heard about the mischief in the warriors' den. He warns his kits not to go in the warrior's den. After this, Snowkit and Bluekit meet Goosefeather, Moonflower's brother and the medicine cat of ThunderClan. The kits know who he is almost immediately. They drift off into conversation until Pinestar tells Moonflower he needs her. Moonflower asks Goosefeather if it's okay if he can manage them for a bit, and he replies that he can do it. Snowkit and Bluekit explore Goosefeather's den. Bluekit eats an unknown herb but quickly spits it out for its vile taste and Snowkit swallows some poppy seeds after Bluekit dares her to. After they are discovered by an angry and worried Moonflower, Goosefeather looks over Snowkit, finds out she only swallowed two and assures Moonflower she will be okay, and just needs to sleep it off, but is still very worried. Moonflower becomes extremely agitated at this, and mutters angrily as she hauls Bluekit and Snowkit back into the nursery. Poppydawn is curious about what happened, so Moonflower explains that Snowkit swallowed a pair of poppy seeds. Poppydawn tells Moonflower that Snowkit will be fine after a rest. Bluekit feels guilty for daring Snowkit to eat them, out of anxiety she asks her mother if Snowkit will die. Moonflower confirms that Snowkit won't die. Later, Pinestar calls a meeting that wakes Bluekit and Snowkit. During this ceremony, Patchkit and Leopardkit are made apprentices. Moons later, Thistlekit, Rosekit, Sweetkit, Lionkit and Goldenkit are born. Bluekit wakes up from a pleasant dream due to the full nursery. In annoyance, she leaves the den and encounters Sunfall. Sunfall suggest Bluekit should climb the ravine with him. She agrees with this. Bluekit once almost fell, but Sunfall catches her, telling her that they should go back, because Bluekit is too small to climb the ravine.
A few moons later, Bluepaw is apprenticed to Stonepelt after WindClan is caught hunting on ThunderClan territory. She asks Stonepelt if they are going hunting, or doing battle practice, or going on a border patrol. Bluepaw is disappointed to find out that instead, she is assigned to fetch moss for the elders' den. Stonepelt shows her how to gather moss by extending her claws to the full length and slicing quickly. Stonepelt tells her that she's practicing useful skills which makes her more confident to complete her task. Bluepaw tells that to Leopardpaw, who teases her. The next day Stonepelt and Sparrowpelt take their apprentices out hunting, and teach Bluepaw and Snowpaw the hunting crouch. On the way back, Bluepaw catches a huge squirrel in one try, which the Clan admires later on. When Goosefeather sees an omen on the vole that was Snowpaw's first catch, he announces to the Clan that unless they attack WindClan, they will be destroyed. Pinestar decides to attack at dawn. He tells Snowpaw and Bluepaw that they will be messengers to find and help injured cats, rather than participate in the fighting, since they haven't learned to fight yet.
On the morning of the raid, Goosefeather announces that he has seen another sign from StarClan: they must destroy WindClan's medicine supply because he found a shred of catmint on the vole's fur, which everyone thinks a piece of catmint just happened to stick to the vole, since it's not exactly clean in the medicine clearing. During the battle, Bluepaw watches uneasily and helps tend to Leopardpaw, who has been injured. Later, in horror, she watches Moonflower, her mother, being attacked and killed by the medicine cat, Hawkheart, who was originally a warrior. Bluepaw want to save her mother, but Swiftbreeze stops her, telling her not to battle without training. Pinestar soon calls the retreat for ThunderClan when he realizes they are losing the battle. Bluepaw runs into the WindClan camp, crouching beside Moonflower. She yells at Moonflower to wake up, but Pinestar tells her that she walks with StarClan now.
Bluepaw falls into a state of depression caused by grief after Moonflower's death, as she has no interest in going on patrols and speaks very little to her Clanmates. Due to the recent battle, her former mentor, Stonepelt, has retired because of a shoulder injury that wouldn't heal properly, and her new mentor is Sunfall, the ThunderClan deputy. Bluepaw gets annoyed by everyone and everything, and acts salty towards everyone. Once she leaves the training fields, she risks her life by staring into a fox's den. Sunfall comes and tells her that she shouldn't risk her life because Snowpaw is just getting over the death of Moonflower and probably can't take it if her sister dies too. Bluepaw is still angry with everything. Sunfall asks her if she misses Moonflower. He also tells Bluepaw that he himself misses the fallen warrior too. Bluepaw is surprised by this. She resents her apprentice tasks, and only after Sunfall talks to her does she begin to notice how everyone is avoiding her. At the next Gathering, Bluepaw meets Crookedpaw, a RiverClan apprentice, for the first time and they become friends. Bluepaw notices that Crookedpaw is a bit big for an apprentice. He later explains he had been somewhat different as a kit and has been apprenticed late. RiverClan announces that Oakheart has been made a warrior. Crookedpaw appears to be Oakheart's brother. Bluepaw begins to act friendly towards her Clanmates again. She just returns to camp when they learn that RiverClan is invading Sunningrocks. At the battle, Bluepaw and Snowpaw work together to fight off Crookedpaw, and soon RiverClan are forced to retreat. However, afterwards Bluepaw is upset because she thought Crookedpaw was her friend.
Goosefeather is treating Bluepaw's wounds from a fox when he suddenly reveals a prophecy to her, saying that like fire, she will blaze through ThunderClan's forest. He warns Bluepaw as well, saying that water can douse fire. Bluepaw is shocked by his words and asks Snowpaw if she think's he's right. Snowpaw doesn't believe Goosefeather and brings the subject of Thistlepaw up again. Bluepaw snaps she doesn't want to have anything to do with Thistlepaw. Not long after, Bluepaw and Snowpaw receive their warrior names, Bluefur and Snowfur. A few days after the Gathering, Pinestar tells Bluefur that he had overlooked part of her training, and that he would be taking her to the Moonstone so that he may speak with StarClan, and she would fulfill her ritual. Once they reach the Moonstone, Bluefur dreams that she is drowning in a fierce current of water.
Not long after their return, Leopardfoot begins to give birth to Pinestar's kits. The next morning, Bluefur finds that she has a horrible bellyache, but recovers soon after. Rosepaw and Sweetpaw are also ill, possibly from a mouse they shared with Bluefur, and while Rosepaw is able to recover, Sweetpaw grows sicker and eventually dies, due to food poisoning. Much to Bluefur's discontent, Snowfur continues to show strong feelings for the new warrior, Thistleclaw, the brother of Rosepaw and Sweetpaw. Pinestar leaves ThunderClan, his mate and kits for a kittypet life.
Bluefur finds the young RiverClan warrior, Oakheart, who is Crookedpaw's brother, sunning himself in ThunderClan territory. Bluefur is enraged and assaults him. He forces her into a stream, and she panics, thinking she is drowning, but Oakheart points out that she can stand on the bottom. Bluefur replies sharply to him and makes him leave. Soon she begins to think about him, even though she repeatedly keeps reminding herself it's against the warrior code to fall in love with Oakheart, a member of a rival Clan. But she can't stay away from him or keep him out of her train of thought.
Rosetail finds her drenched and says she looks fanciful, much like the way Snowfur was mooning over Thistleclaw. Rosetail keeps pestering Bluefur until she snaps at her. Rosetail then tells her that Thrushpelt has had enough time to moon over Bluefur, and she is shocked because she thought of him only as a friend and Clanmate.
Snowfur brings it to Bluefur's attention that she is expecting Thistleclaw's kits. Bluefur pretends she is overjoyed, but really she is devastated at this news. Snowfur is surprised when she gives birth to only one lone kit, who she names Whitekit. Bluefur is surprised at Thistleclaw's kindness to her sister.
Bluefur finds a tuft of dog fur and brings it to the nursery for Whitekit to play with. She then coaxes Snowfur to go on a walk with her. As they walk, Snowfur finds out that Bluefur is mooning over Oakheart. She runs and Bluefur finds her observing ShadowClan warriors hunting in ThunderClan territory. They pursue them across the border and Snowfur runs out onto the Thunderpath. As Snowfur is on the Thunderpath, a monster hits and kills her at impact. Bluefur is even more devastated, similar to her emotions of Moonflower's death, and has trouble telling Whitekit. After Bluefur tells him, Whitekit cannot stay away from his dead mother's corpse. Later, Sunstar has the same kind of talk with Bluefur that he did when Moonflower died. Bluefur starts to avoid Whitekit until the next Gathering, where Oakheart announces traces of Twolegs on RiverClan's land. Rosetail starts to moon over the tom and Bluefur feels uncomfortable about this. Bluefur and Thistleclaw fight frequently over Whitekit later, Thistleclaw gets Tigerpaw to mentor. Bluefur wonders why Sunstar chose him and not her however, she gets to spend more time with Whitekit. Some moons later, Sunstar sends Bluefur and Thistleclaw on a patrol together. Bluefur is not okay with the fact that she has to go alone with Thistleclaw. On the patrol, Thistleclaw detects kittypet scent. Bluefur tells him to leave, because that didn't even smell like a mature cat. Later, Thistleclaw, Tigerpaw and Bluefur go on a patrol. They run into a kittypet kit. Thistleclaw orders Tigerpaw to beat the kit up. Bluefur watches in horror and eventually pushes Tigerpaw away. Thistleclaw is starting to doubt Bluefur's loyalty. She threatens to tell Sunstar if they beat up a kit. Whitekit is later apprenticed to Patchpelt and becomes a warrior, Whitestorm. At the time, Bluefur gains an apprentice, Frostpaw, who becomes Frostfur.
Sunstar decides it is time to reclaim Sunningrocks. He gathers some warriors to go with him to the RiverClan camp, since he does not want a battle. In the beginning, some cats like Thistleclaw are against talking Sunningrocks back and that real warriors fight for their territory. At the RiverClan camp, Sunstar tricks Hailstar into returning the rocks by making it look like a battle would be his fault. The ThunderClan cats are starting to leave, but then Oakheart catches Bluefur's eye. He tells her to meet her because he has strong feelings for her. Bluefur is shocked, because this would be against the warrior code. But she still ends up meeting him after her Clanmates have fallen asleep. During the trip to Fourtrees, Snowfur's spirit appears. Bluefur tells her that she has to do this. Bluefur and Oakheart spend the night together at Fourtrees. After standing in the cold, she doesn't want to just sit there and do nothing, so Bluefur challenges Oakheart to a race to the top of one the four oaks. Oakheart then reveals he can't climb, and Bluefur shows him how to scale a tree. Oakheart the makes a vow to teach Bluefur how to swim. Bluefur has no interest in this, for she fears the water because of Goosefeather's prophecy. The two reach the top of the tree. Bluefur wonders if StarClan is watching them. Oakheart replies that if StarClan can't see them here, they can't see them anywhere. The wind blows and Oakheart becomes anxious. They get back on the ground not long after that. Bluefur calls Oakheart a fish-face multiple times until he playfully attacks her. Later, he confesses how much he loves her and that the only thing that can hurt him, is being apart from her. Bluefur and Oakheart then build a nest in one of the roots of the Great Oaks and sleep side by side.
The next day Bluefur leaves Oakheart and Fourtrees. She is scared that there might be a patrol. She successfully returns to the den and remembers her moments with Oakheart. When she wakes up, she goes on a patrol with Thrushpelt, Goldenflower, and Lionheart. They patrol the kittypet border. Goldenflower, the leader of the patrols wants everyone to go in pairs. She herself goes with her brother Lionheart, leaving Bluefur and Thrushpelt to go together. Thrushpelt compliments her multiple times, but Bluefur finds it all very annoying all of a sudden. Back in the camp, Bluefur is very tired.
Leopardfoot tells Bluefur that it is clear that she is expecting kits after she returned from the gathering. Bluefur is unsure of how to explain it, but Thrushpelt generously offers to say he is the father, because he loves her. Bluefur agrees, not wanting any cat to know that Oakheart is the father. Thistleclaw almost murders Oakheart near Sunningrocks, but Bluefur stops him. She reports Thistleclaw's activity to Sunstar, but he is still sure that Thistleclaw was just being loyal. As Bluefur has her kits, Snowfur appears from StarClan and helps her along; she then gives birth to two daughters and a son— Mistykit, Mosskit, and Stonekit. She doesn't let Thrushpelt name them because she wants her kits to remember the river. As the deputy to Sunstar, Tawnyspots, becomes very sick and must retire soon, Bluefur realizes she must give up her kits so she can become deputy instead of Thistleclaw, who is too violent, and threatens every Clan. She leaves in the middle of the night with her kits and makes them think it's a game, calling it an escape game— they go to Sunningrocks where Oakheart is waiting for their arrival.
The weather then takes a turn for the worse, and Bluefur realizes that her kits won't survive if she doesn't do something. She makes holes in the snow to try to keep her kits warm. As she moves them from hole to hole, Stonekit complains of being tired. Bluefur decides to let her kits sleep and she also dozes off. When Bluefur wakes up, she wakes up her kits. Mosskit doesn't awaken. Bluefur desperately tries to bring her out of it but fails. She hears Snowfur, her deceased sister, telling her to let go of Mosskit. Bluefur looks up to see Mosskit talking to Snowfur with excitement as she goes to StarClan. Bluefur gives her two remaining kits, Stonekit and Mistykit, to Oakheart. This is the last time she talks to Oakheart. She buries Mosskit and tells the Clan that a fox took her kits. She acts devastated, but is even more inside.
She is then chosen to be the new deputy of ThunderClan. When Sunstar dies, she then becomes leader of ThunderClan, and chooses Redtail to be her deputy. Featherwhisker brings her to the Moonstone to receive her nine lives: Pinestar, Larksong, Mumblefoot, Weedwhisker, Sweetpaw, Mosskit, Sunstar, Moonflower, and Snowfur give her these lives. When Mosskit comes to give her mother a life, Bluefur says she's sorry for her death, and Mosskit simply replies that she misses her. After gaining her lives and leader name, Snowfur says StarClan chose her long ago and never regretted their choice, words she keeps in mind for many moons.
Sometime later, Bluestar and Whitestorm see a kittypet named Rusty on a fence, gazing into the forest. Whitestorm remarks, after a close to successful attempt to catch and kill a bird, that it wasn't bad. The kittypet haunts Bluestar's mind, as before, Spottedleaf received a prophecy, saying that fire would save the Clan. Bluestar thinks the kittypet might be the fire that the prophecy speaks of.
After sharing tongues with Brindleface and Lionheart, she goes to the medicine den and admits all her thoughts to Spottedleaf. Spottedleaf simply replies that this is a choice Bluestar made, and that she will support her.
She appears in the manga at the end, making Rusty an apprentice of ThunderClan.

Yellowfang's Secret

She is not mentioned by name, but she is seen by Yellowfang at a Gathering. Yellowfang sees her sitting alone under an arching fern, and is about to go speak to her when the RiverClan cats pour into the clearing, and a tabby tom with a twisted jaw almost knocks her over to approach her.

Firestar's Quest

Bluestar appears as a StarClan cat, telling Firestar about SkyClan, the fifth Clan, when he visits the Moonstone for answers. Firestar is shocked by this revelation, and now knows that StarClan lied about there only ever being four Clans in the forest. Bluestar puts her tail over his shoulder and tells him to worry about ThunderClan. When Firestar asks if it's the will of StarClan to ignore suffering cats like SkyClan, Bluestar says that there are cats who would argue that there should not have been a fifth Clan in the forest at all, because there are four oaks at Fourtrees. This only disgusts Firestar, and he snarls at Bluestar, asking if she's mouse-brained and if SkyClan had to leave just because there weren't enough trees. This leaves Bluestar shocked and dismayed, but Firestar leaves before she can reply. Firestar remains angry for awhile at StarClan for lying to him, but he eventually gets over it.
When Firestar and Sandstorm start their journey, they eventually come to an abandoned Twoleg nest. Sandstorm wants to stay for the night, but Firestar convinces her that they need to continue, even though a raging storm had already begun. When they begin traveling upstream, Firestar looks into the clouds and somehow sees Bluestar's face in the clouds. Her face is pleading, as if trying to tell him something. Firestar starts to yowl a question, but is cut off by a bang of lightning, in which Bluestar's face then disappears. After Firestar and Sandstorm get separated, Firestar realizes that Bluestar was trying to warn them about the dangerous storm.

SkyClan's Destiny

Bluestar is seen in one of Leafstar's dreams along with Snowfur, Spottedleaf, Whitestorm, Cloudstar, and Skywatcher. Spottedleaf introduces Leafstar to Bluestar, saying that she was the leader preceding Firestar.

Bramblestar's Storm

Bluestar interrupts Firestar when he is hunting a squirrel in StarClan. She asks him to walk with her and they discuss Bramblestar's leadership and the hardships of leaf-bare. Firestar wistfully tells his old mentor he thought Spottedleaf would be in StarClan with him, and Bluestar reminds him that Sandstorm would come to StarClan and join him one day.

In The Prophecies Begin arc

Into the Wild

In the prologue, Bluestar is seen in the ThunderClan camp, staring at the night sky. The ThunderClan medicine cat, Spottedleaf, appears next to her and Bluestar asks how the cats from the battle at Sunningrocks are doing, to which Spottedleaf replies that they will all recover. Bluestar tells Spottedleaf she is worried, because ThunderClan hasn't lost a battle in their own territory since she became leader, and also because fewer kits have been born. While they are talking, Spottedleaf receives a message from StarClan: "Fire alone can save our Clan." At first, Bluestar is unsure about this message, but trusts Spottedleaf and her judgment, since she has never been wrong before.
Bluestar is seen with Lionheart when they meet Rusty, a kittypet, for the first time near the Twolegplace. Graypaw had fought the kittypet and is startled when Bluestar offers Rusty a place in ThunderClan. When Rusty accepts this offer, he is brought to the Clan, and after proving himself worthy by fighting Longtail and losing his collar, Bluestar names him Firepaw. She names Lionheart deputy after the death of Redtail. Before Bluestar punishes Firepaw, Firepaw tells Graypaw that Bluestar will probably make him a loner once she's done with him, but Graypaw says that Bluestar is very fair, and would never throw him out, especially since they have such an important ShadowClan cat held prisoner. She tells the Clan that she thinks that ShadowClan has driven out WindClan since their scent is in the WindClan territory. She also tells the Clan that she would take Firepaw as her apprentice. Bluestar ends up punishing Firepaw, for feeding Yellowfang, a rogue, before his Clan, by making him take care of Yellowfang while ThunderClan kept her prisoner. Bluestar tells Firepaw that he should continue his training, after a few days of taking care of Yellowfang, and tells him that she'll make sure one of the queens will take care of her.
Before ThunderClan enters the clearing into the Gathering, Bluestar tells Ravenpaw, Graypaw, and Firepaw to not waste any of their time, and that this is the time to meet their enemies, and learn from them. When Brokenstar demands hunting rights from the other Clans, Bluestar refuses to agree. Later, she, Tigerclaw, Firepaw, Graypaw, and Ravenpaw go to the Moonstone so she can share dreams with StarClan. Once the get there, Bluestar chooses Firepaw to go inside with her and Tigerclaw while the other apprentices wait outside. During their return, they are attacked by rats, and Bluestar loses a life, and tells Tigerclaw that she lost her fifth life. The ShadowClan cats attacked the camp in their absence, and Lionheart was killed in the battle. Bluestar names Tigerclaw the new deputy.
One day in her den, she is battle training Firepaw when she reveals that she had really lost her seventh life in the battle with the rats. Later, when Spottedleaf is killed and Frostfur's kits are taken, Bluestar sends Firepaw to retrieve Yellowfang and to question her. Soon, she sends a patrol led by Whitestorm, telling the warrior that he might meet a friend. They come back, and they revealed that they had the kits and that they drove Brokenstar and his rogues out of ShadowClan. Graypaw and Firepaw tell Bluestar that the timid apprentice Ravenpaw had died in the battle, and as much as she grieves, Bluestar gives the pair their warrior names - Graystripe and Fireheart.

Fire and Ice

Fireheart talks to Bluestar about the Sunningrocks battle and Redtail killing Oakheart, but Bluestar does not think so, and she says that a deputy should not kill another deputy. She also learns that Ravenpaw is living with a loner. At first Fireheart is worried she will be angry and try to make him return, but she says that not every cat is suited to Clan life and that she hopes he is happier with Barley than he was in the forest.
Bluestar makes sure that WindClan is found and returned to their territory by sending Fireheart and Graystripe to go bring them out of exile. She copes with many problems throughout the book, one of them being the possible threat of RiverClan and ShadowClan making an alliance with each other. She also comes down with greencough, which causes her to lose her eighth life. Tigerclaw sets a trap for her by the Thunderpath, hoping that she will die when she tries to bring a message to him. However, Cinderpaw instead falls into the trap.
Later on, it is suspected that RiverClan and ShadowClan are hunting in ThunderClan territory. RiverClan has an excuse unknown by Bluestar, but instead of ShadowClan, it turns out to be Brokenstar, the exiled former leader of ShadowClan, and his band of rogues. Brokenstar and the rogues later attacks the ThunderClan camp, but is defeated and blinded by Yellowfang. Bluestar accepts the newly named Brokentail into the Clan as a prisoner.

Forest of Secrets

Fireheart begins investigating the battle at Sunningrocks when Redtail was killed to find out about Tigerclaw, but in the process, he discovers Bluestar's greatest secret: the RiverClan warriors, Mistyfoot and Stonefur, are her kits.
When Fireheart asks what Bluestar was going to say about Brokentail at the Gathering, she said she would say nothing, because it doesn't concern the other Clans and he is ThunderClan's responsibility now. She tells both Tigerclaw and Fireheart that no one is to say anything about Brokentail or the attack of the rogue cats. However, the other Clans find out about it and declare war, and Bluestar is accused by her warriors of putting the Clan in danger.
When Graystripe and Fireheart come back from Barley's farm to see Ravenpaw, Tigerclaw notices that they are full-fed but bring no fresh-kill, so Bluestar says that they will hunt for the Clan until the next sunrise. She appoints Mousefur and Whitestorm as the mentors of Thornpaw and Brightpaw. Bluestar denies Fireheart's accusations towards Tigerclaw and denies that Mistyfoot and Stonefur have ThunderClan blood. When Fireheart tells about some unknown rogues near Twolegplace, Bluestar tells him that sometimes she thinks he spends too much time there, but orders the patrols to keep a lookout.
Bluestar finally believes Fireheart about Tigerclaw's treachery when Tigerclaw brings the rogue cats to attack ThunderClan. While the other Clan cats are busy fighting them off, Tigerclaw slips into Bluestar's den and attacks, declaring his intent to kill, much to her shock and anger. Tigerclaw nearly kills Bluestar, but is stopped by Fireheart. Bluestar exiles Tigerclaw from ThunderClan and says that if he is caught on their territory again, the warriors can kill him. She makes Fireheart her deputy, which comes much to the Clan's surprise because of his kittypet origins. However, the ceremony is after moonhigh, which is against Clan customs, and many elders think it to be a bad omen.

Rising Storm

Bluestar has become a shell of her former self after Tigerclaw's treachery, leaving most of the management of the Clan to Fireheart, and sometimes forgetting things about what is going on. After learning about Tigerclaw's treachery, she trusts only Fireheart and Whitestorm. Whitestorm tells Fireheart that Brindleface thinks her two kits are ready to be apprentices, and that maybe good news could cheer Bluestar up, but the leader becomes furious at Fireheart when he says that there are no warriors in the camp, making a rule that there should be at least three warriors in the camp at all times. Bluestar announces Fireheart's requests as mentors of Brindleface's kits, Dustpelt mentoring Ashpaw, and Darkstripe mentoring Fernpaw.
When trying to travel to Highstones to speak with StarClan, Bluestar smells RiverClan cats, and Fireheart thinks she's hoping she'll see her kits, Mistyfoot and Stonefur. They are stopped by a WindClan patrol led by Mudclaw on the way to Highstones and forced to return. She begins to think that StarClan does not want her to speak with them.
When Bluestar tells Fireheart to gather all the warriors to come to the Gathering, Fireheart asks who they should take, and Bluestar lists the names easily, leaving out Cloudpaw and including Ashpaw. When Mousefur asks Bluestar what they are going to say about WindClan not allowing her to go to the Moonstone, she tells her that she will say nothing and that WindClan knows what they did wrong. Sandstorm tells Fireheart that Bluestar seemingly changed since Tigerclaw's attack with the rogues, and Fireheart agrees with her, but tells that Bluestar is still the same. When everyone at the Gathering wants to know what happened to Tigerclaw, Bluestar tells them that it is none of their business and that it only concerns ThunderClan.
When the ThunderClan cats find Littlecloud and Whitethroat on ThunderClan territory, Bluestar finds out that Nightstar is sick, despite seeming fine last night at the Gathering. Bluestar agrees with Yellowfang to send the cats back to ShadowClan and instructs Fireheart to do so.
When there is a fire in the forest near ThunderClan's camp, Bluestar helps get the cats out, being more alert than usual. When all of ThunderClan is sheltering with RiverClan, she decides that StarClan has turned their backs on her and declares war against her warrior ancestors.

A Dangerous Path

Bluestar goes through a huge depression, caused by Tigerclaw's treachery and StarClan not helping ThunderClan. She only trusts Whitestorm and Fireheart, and she is told by Fireheart that Tigerclaw, now Tigerstar, is the new leader of ShadowClan. Bluestar has now grown to loathe StarClan, believing that they have betrayed her, especially after Speckletail's deaf kit, Snowkit, is killed by a hawk.
She believes that WindClan is stealing prey from ThunderClan, when in reality the evidence shows that it is a dog, and prepares to launch an attack on them. Fireheart travels to WindClan to set up a peace meeting in an attempt to avert an inter-Clan war. He manages to prevent the battle, but Bluestar is disappointed in him.
When Bluestar leads a patrol past Sunningrocks, they are attacked by a RiverClan patrol. She is attacked by her own kits, Mistyfoot and Stonefur, and Fireheart stops them by revealing to them that Bluestar is their mother. She also allows Graystripe to rejoin ThunderClan after he is banished from RiverClan for warning Fireheart.
She disappears from camp without warning any of her Clan, and travels to Mothermouth to share tongues with StarClan. They warn her of the "pack," saying that "it will bring more death and destruction than the forest has ever seen before."
She portrays her hatred of StarClan to her own Clan by giving only Cloudpaw his warrior name, Cloudtail; she does this because of his belief that StarClan does not exist, and also because she only trusts Fireheart, therefore she thinks his apprentice is the only one that deserves to become a warrior. This causes Swiftpaw and Brightpaw, the two older apprentices who Bluestar has neglected, to travel to Snakerocks in hope of discovering what has been stealing ThunderClan prey, all in attempts to impress Bluestar. They are brutally attacked by dogs, and Swiftpaw dies. Brightpaw barely manages to survive, but with a gruesome scar on her face. Bluestar gives the dying warrior ceremony to Brightpaw, naming her Lostface.
Fireheart comes up with a plan to rid ThunderClan of the Snakerocks menace, which turns out to be a pack of dogs which are fed by Tigerstar. When Tigerstar pins Fireheart down so that the lead dog could catch up to him, Fireheart is saved by Bluestar, who cannons into the lead dog's side, knocking the dog and herself off the side of the gorge and into the river, also giving up her ninth life to save her Clan. During her final conversation with Fireheart, she reveals to him that she helped with defeating the dog pack because she knew StarClan and ThunderClan had not betrayed her. When she saw the Clan working together to drive off the dogs, she realized that none of her Clanmates were traitors, and she could not leave the Clan she loved so much to face the danger alone. She apologises for lying to Mistyfoot and Stonefur, who accept her as their mother and forgive her. She shares tongues with them for the first and last time. She dies naming Fireheart leader, and tells him that when she saw him leading the cats into the gorge, she knew StarClan had not abandoned her. She tells Fireheart that he is the fire that would save the Clan.

The Darkest Hour

Fireheart lets Stonefur and Mistyfoot say goodbye to their mother before they return back to RiverClan. Whitestorm apologizes to Fireheart for not watching Bluestar, claiming that it was his fault that Bluestar had died, but he told Whitestorm there was no need for an apology. Fireheart tells the Clan all about Bluestar and her secret past. Cinderpelt talks about Bluestar during her burial ceremony, and she says that Bluestar was a noble leader. When Fireheart sits next to Bluestar's body, he feels security, like a kit with his mother.
When Fireheart is receiving his nine lives, Bluestar gives Fireheart his ninth and final life, along with the gifts of nobility, certainty, and faith, and his leader name, Firestar. She then gives him the book's main prophecy: "Four will become two, Lion and Tiger will meet in battle, and Blood will rule the forest."
During the battle with BloodClan at Fourtrees, she also explains that his body needs to recover from the loss of his first life before he can rejoin the battle. She tells him that there will always be five Clans in the forest and that she will go back with him in the battle.

In The New Prophecy arc


In the prologue, Bluestar, as a StarClan warrior, chooses the ThunderClan representative to go to the sun-drown-place. She also challenges her mate Oakheart when he chooses Feathertail to go on the journey, and he says asks her if she thinks Feathertail was not mentored well, because Feathertail was mentored by Mistyfoot, Bluestar's kit. When Nightstar chooses Tawnypelt, Bluestar says that she has strength and courage. But when Deadfoot chooses Crowpaw, Bluestar asks him if he wants to make another choice, but he dares any cat to say he's not worthy. When Bluestar asks if StarClan approves of Crowpaw because he is an apprentice, some cats agree, but most of them stay quiet about it.
She later appears to Brambleclaw in a dream, telling him of his fate; he needs to go with three other cats, Tawnypelt, Crowpaw, and Feathertail, to find a new territory for the Clans.


Bluestar is amongst those cats that meet with Midnight in the skies controlled by StarClan over their new territory. Bluestar tells Spottedleaf that they chose the four cats to lead the Clans out of the forest, well. When Oakheart says that trouble comes from Twolegs, Bluestar says that they both know that not just Twolegs cause problems, but also the Clans themselves. She is the first to welcome Midnight, and she tells her that StarClan owes her thanks. She states that every loyal warrior wants what is best for their Clan.
When Yellowfang says she sees dark times ahead, Bluestar asks her what she means. She cautions Spottedleaf against looking too hard for the future of cats because she "of all cats should know that sometimes there is nothing we can do." When Spottedleaf says she would use all the power in StarClan to protect Firestar, Bluestar says that even that wouldn't be enough. She tells Midnight that StarClan is not her place, and that she may meet her once more, but clouded times are coming.


Bluestar is amongst the StarClan warriors at the Moonpool that tell the ThunderClan medicine cat, Cinderpelt, that she will be joining StarClan very soon. Bluestar tells her that she has served her Clan more faithfully than some cats can in their lifetime, and that it might not seem fair if they take her away. When Cinderpelt tells Bluestar there's no need to apologize, she says that there is because of how much her Clan owes her. Nightstar tells Cinderpelt that they wish they could change it, but Bluestar says that some destinies StarClan can't control, no matter how much they want to. When Cinderpelt wants to know when she will die, Bluestar says that she don't even know when, but they will be waiting for her when the time comes. She tells Cinderpelt that the strength of StarClan will be with her and they wouldn't let her face this alone. She says it hurts them all when a young cat has to go to StarClan, and she knows Cinderpelt would have continued serving her Clan for many more seasons. Bluestar tells Cinderpelt before she goes that they will always be with her. Later on, during a badger attack on ThunderClan, Cinderpelt dies defending the nursery and Sorreltail, who is giving birth to her first litter of kits.


Bluestar, Yellowfang, and Lionheart tell the new ThunderClan medicine cat, Leafpool, that she will walk a path that few medicine cats have walked before. Leafpool asks Bluestar about three bright stars that she sees very often in the sky, but does not recognize, but Bluestar ignores her. When Leafpool asks her if she had a prophecy for her, Bluestar tells that her life was going to twist in ways hidden to her. Bluestar informs her that these stars are of cats she has not met yet, but will shape her future when she does meet them. She tells Leafpool that StarClan will always be with her, and that her path will vanish into shadow, but they will be with her every pawstep of the way. When Leafpool visits the Moonpool, Bluestar welcomes her as the new medicine cat of ThunderClan. Leafpool searches for Cinderpelt, but when she asks Bluestar where she is, Bluestar is fading away, along with the other StarClan cats.

In the Power of Three arc

The Sight

When Leafpool appears at the Moonpool, Bluestar welcomes her, and tells her that they had a feeling she would come. Bluestar asks Leafpool if she came with good news, and she says that Graystripe was back.
When Tallstar says that Firestar would choose the warrior that knows the Clan best, Bluestar says that would be a tough decision, one that no other leader has decided before. Lionheart tells Bluestar that they should have seen that Graystripe was still alive, and told Leafpool, but Bluestar says that he was too far away for them to see him. She tells Leafpool that Brambleclaw has done well as deputy, and that Firestar would had been foolish if he had gone without a deputy. Bluestar gives Leafpool a message to tell Firestar on the matter of Graystripe or Brambleclaw being ThunderClan's deputy. She says that Firestar needs to use his head, not his heart, in his decision. With help of Jaypaw deciphering, Firestar chooses Brambleclaw to remain the deputy of ThunderClan.


Bluestar is seen talking to Whitestorm, Spottedleaf, and Yellowfang about the prophecy of Jaypaw, Hollypaw, and Lionpaw. Spottedleaf asks Whitestorm if Bluestar was with him, and he said she was a minute ago. Then, Bluestar enters telling them all that she would've came sooner if Tallstar wasn't fretting and had stopped her. She tells them all that Tallstar was worrying over Hollypaw, Lionpaw, and Jaypaw, and that the prophecy has gotten under his pelt like a tick. Bluestar starts arguing with Yellowfang over whether to tell Hollypaw, Lionpaw, and Jaypaw the truth. Bluestar thinks it should be kept a secret, but Yellowfang thinks they should tell them. After a while, Bluestar starts to leave and tells Spottedleaf that if she stays any longer that her and Yellowfang will argue. Bluestar says that she understands Yellowfang's fears, but for now, they were to keep it a secret. Yellowfang growls under her breath that Bluestar is stubborn.

Long Shadows

Bluestar is seen among StarClan by Jaypaw, furious that greencough might destroy her Clan. She respectively greets Brightspirit when she bursts into the clearing, saying it has been a long time since they've met.


Yellowfang attacks Bluestar, angry that she did not tell the truth to the Clans. Bluestar asks Yellowfang what her problem is and reminds her that she was her leader. When Yellowfang says more blood will be shed on ThunderClan, Bluestar tells her she doesn't know that. After the fight, Bluestar tells her that the damage is done, and it's not her fault. She couldn't believe that Midnight betrayed them, because she thought she was going to watch over the Clans. When Yellowfang asks Bluestar if they were wrong about the Three, she yowls her disagreement and that she didn't want to lie. She thought Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight were good parents, and telling the truth would not have helped, but Yellowfang says that Bluestar had destroyed the Clan she had always tried to protect.

In the Omen of the Stars arc

The Fourth Apprentice

Bluestar joins with three other cats in StarClan to discuss what to do about the one cat in the prophecy. Irritably shaking one of her forepaws, Bluestar asks why they all had to meet at the waterfall, complaining that it was too noisy and too wet. Yellowfang tells her former leader to stop complaining and that she chose the meeting place because it was noisy and wet. Lionheart invites Bluestar to sit by him and she seats herself with a sniff of contempt. Bluestar tells him that if it was dry, she would be a mouse. She asks Yellowfang what she wants. After Yellowfang explains the purpose of the meeting, Bluestar sharply asks if they are certain that they have the right Three this time. When Spottedleaf says that she knows that they are the Three and that they had the same dream the night the One was born, Bluestar says that she may be right, but so much has gone on that some things change. She is against Yellowfang regarding the plan of sending the One a sign to tell her that she is part of the prophecy. Lionheart interrupts her by telling her that she needs to have faith in the cats. She tells them that they had thought Hollyleaf was good and loyal, but that she had turned out the opposite in the end.
When Feathertail enters, Bluestar asks her what she is doing, and demands if she is spying on them. When Yellowfang says in the end, kits would go their own way to Feathertail, Bluestar says all cats do it. As Lionheart returns to conversation focus, Bluestar says that the One was already strong and clever, even without knowing a special power. After Lionheart mentions that if StarClan had meddled more, Hollyleaf might not have been lost, Bluestar's neck fur bristles as she tells the cats that the Clans had to live their own lives. She is outvoted by the other cats about sending the sign, and then asks Yellowfang who she will send it to out of Jayfeather and Lionblaze. Yellowfang responds that she will not send it to either one of them, but send it to the third cat.

Night Whispers

Bluestar is seen in the prologue. She is conversing with Yellowfang, Sagewhisker, Fernshade, Lionheart, Mudfur, Oakheart and Mudclaw about the battle between ThunderClan and ShadowClan. She reminds the cats that it is not the Clans' battling that they should be worrying about, but the Dark Forest, and says that Tigerstar has never understood anything but violence.

The Forgotten Warrior

When Jayfeather tries to sneak up on Ashfur, Bluestar leaps down from a branch above him, saying that she doesn't think that's a good idea. Jayfeather explains his reasoning for wanting to talk to him, and Bluestar remarks that he's kept the secrets about the murderer of Ashfur. Jayfeather retorts that she's his sister. Bluestar rests her tail on his shoulders, saying he won't learn anything from talking to Ashfur. He knows who killed him, and it is not StarClan's place to judge him. If he found his way to StarClan, he deserves to be here. Jayfeather shakes his head, saying he doesn't understand, but Bluestar wisely states that some things are beyond understanding. Jayfeather finally says that he doesn't know if Hollyleaf deserves to be back, and Bluestar replies that it is not his decision. Hollyleaf and Ashfur paid a high price for what they did. Perhaps justice has now been served.

The Last Hope

Bluestar is seen in the prologue, being warmly greeted by Half Moon. When she settles herself and Spottedleaf beside the four Ancients, Bluestar curls her tail over paws, and solemnly says that they have come to prepare for the end. When Owl Feather narrows her eyes and suspiciously asked if they would believe what the Ancients would say, Spottedleaf jumps to Bluestar's defense, arguing that her leader had always believed, but others needed convincing. Eyes glistening, Bluestar says that the Clans would make their own choices and that there was nothing more she could do. When Slant leans closer and asks Bluestar if the prophecies helped, Bluestar glances at her medicine cat, agreeing that they did and Spottedleaf had recognized the flaming star that led her to Firestar. As Slant asks if the Clans would fight alone in the final battle, Bluestar's tail thrashed, vowing that she would die a tenth time to defend ThunderClan.
Bluestar is seen in StarClan, eating a vole in the shade of a wilting juniper. She looks up in surprise when she sees Jayfeather, Whitestorm, Goosefeather, and Sunstar, and asks where they're going. Jayfeather simply replies, for her to wait and see. Bluestar pushes past Sunstar later in the united StarClan, correcting him by saying, now there are four in the prophecy. Bluestar also states that they aren't the only cats guided by a prophecy, and mentions the fire will save the Clan prophecy. After Mosskit asks Jayfeather why he took them to the terrible Dark Forest cats, Bluestar comforts the kit by reminding her that they have to know the enemy. When Jayfeather demands StarClan to fight together, Bluestar reasons that they can't fight such cruelty while divided.
After Firestar is killed, Brambleclaw sees Bluestar under thorns, and beckons her out. Bluestar comes out with Redtail, Silverstream, Brindleface, Swiftpaw, and Yellowfang following. Runningwind and Lionheart join them. Bluestar steps forward, stating that Spottedleaf isn't with StarClan, but gave Firestar a life for love. Bluestar continues, meowing that she gave him a life for nobility, even though he was born with more nobility than any warrior she ever knew. Bluestar talks about the two prophecies Firestar takes part in, and says that he left ThunderClan in the paws of a new leader. She tells Brambleclaw if he has half the courage and loyalty of Firestar, he'll be a fine leader of ThunderClan.

The Rise of Scourge

Bluefur, then a young warrior, is on a patrol made up of herself, Thistleclaw, and his apprentice Tigerpaw. They discover a kittypet on ThunderClan territory, and Thistleclaw thinks that he should be chased out, but Bluefur defends him, saying that he is only a kit. Thistleclaw says that Bluefur is being soft on him because he is a kittypet, then asks his apprentice, Tigerpaw, what he thinks, and Tigerpaw says that the kittypet should be taught a lesson. He almost kills the kit on Thistleclaw's orders before being stopped by Bluefur, who says that a cat doesn't need to kill to win a battle.

In the Ravenpaw's Path arc

Shattered Peace

When Ravenpaw goes to the Moonstone with Barley, Bluestar appears in a dream to Ravenpaw, along with Whitestorm and Spottedleaf. She tells Ravenpaw that it was good to see him. When Ravenpaw tells her that he thought they forgot about him, she tells him never, and that they have seen that Barley and him are in trouble. Bluestar tells Ravenpaw that they have as much right to live on the farm as much as the Clans live in the forest, because the farm is his and Barley's home. Ravenpaw says that he doesn't deserve ThunderClan's loyalty because he was no longer a Clan cat, Bluestar tells him that he may not be a Clan cat, but that he has their friendship and that is a loyalty that never dies. Finally, she wishes him luck to find ThunderClan.

In the Graystripe's Adventure arc

The Lost Warrior

Bluestar is seen during Graystipe's delirium, calling out his name.

In the Field Guides

Secrets of the Clans

Bluestar is seen as a warrior in "Snowfur Speaks: A Sad, Cold Death" where she has given birth to her kits, Mosskit, Stonekit, and Mistykit. As Snowfur watches, Mosskit is too cold and weak, and she dies. When Bluefur tries to nudge her, she doesn't move. Snowfur promises that she would take care of Mosskit for Bluefur. It was revealed that Whitestorm is Bluestar's nephew, explaining the great affection between them. It is revealed that Bluestar's mother was Moonflower, her mentor was Stonepelt, and she was a mentor to Frostfur and Runningwind, as well as Firestar.
She also appears in the story, "Bluepaw Speaks: My First Sight of Fourtrees." Her first Gathering is only two days after her apprentice ceremony, and her mother proudly accompanies her. She says that the moon is as bright and round as her mother's eyes. She says that there were four oaks at each of the four corners of the clearing, and the clearing was full of cats murmuring and meowing, their fur silver in the moonlight. In the center of the clearing was The Great Rock, looking like to stick straight out of the ground. Bluepaw quotes that one day, she would be the leader of ThunderClan, and she would stand on top of The Great Rock.

Cats of the Clans

Rock questions Bluestar's decision to bring Firestar into the Clan, asking whether Bluestar was blinded by the color of Firestar's pelt, knowing he fulfilled the prophecy that fire would save ThunderClan. He also says that StarClan wanted Firestar as much as Bluestar did. Rock says that Bluestar was a great leader, and the price of it is even bigger than she dreamed, giving up her kits so she could become deputy instead of Thistleclaw, who would have made the forest run with blood. He tells Mosskit that she should be proud of her mother, for her loyalty to her Clan.
Rock says that Bluestar mentored Firestar well, and trained him to be a wise and confident warrior, and she saw that Firestar was a savior as soon as the sun hit his flame-colored pelt, seeming like a gift from StarClan, who gave Spottedleaf the prophecy that fire would save the Clan. Rock also states that it is too easy to think that Bluestar went mad during the last moons of her life, after losing her kits, her mate, her kin, and betrayed by her seemingly loyal deputy; but one must remember that she died protecting her Clan, giving up her last life valiantly and making peace with her surviving kits before dying.
When Rock is talking about Yellowfang, Bluestar is briefly mentioned, saying Yellowfang persuaded her to let Brokenstar live in the ThunderClan camp. She is also mentioned in Cinderpelt's section, when Rock tells the kits that StarClan did not plan for Cinderpelt to be struck on the Thunderpath instead of Bluestar. Rock also mentions Bluestar when talking about Tallstar. He tells them how she tried to lead ThunderClan into battle against WindClan over a belief of stolen prey. Luckily, Tallstar believed Firestar's warning that Bluestar was mistaken and refused to fight. Rock also says that it was partly thanks to Onewhisker that Tallstar agreed not to fight against Bluestar. Rock mentions that Crookedstar knew who Mistystar and Stonefur's mother was the moment Oakheart came to him with a tale of finding two kits lost in the snow, because it was obvious who their mother was from the color of their fur and the scent that clung to them.
As Rock lists the deaths that Tigerstar caused, Bluestar is on the list.

Battles of the Clans

Bluestar is mentioned in "Dustpaw Speaks: Shadows in the Forest," when Tigerclaw sends Ravenpaw back to the camp to tell Bluestar about the invading ShadowClan warriors and fetch reinforcements. During Dustpaw's plan of a double Lightning Strike to make the invaders think the whole Clan has them surrounded, Longtail calls out to Bluestar to make it seem as if she was present, when she wasn't.

The Ultimate Guide

Bluestar introduces ThunderClan, describing their territory and the hunting attributes of all ThunderClan warriors. She tells of their ancestry and how they got their battle skills from their ancestors. She says that they are the Clan that holds the warrior code most dear and that follows it more closely. She goes on to describe how ThunderClan and RiverClan both fought constantly over Sunningrocks back in the old forest. Bluestar ends the introduction by telling the reader that some cats that are not Clanborn may learn the ways of a Clan, but that won't change the way they think.
Bluestar has her own page. Proud and committed, her life wasn't always easy. Her mother, Moonflower, and her sister, Snowfur, were both killed, and Bluestar grieved. She fell in love with Oakheart, whose kits she ended up bearing after leaving him. In order to become ThunderClan deputy instead of the dangerous warrior Thistleclaw, she gave her kits up to Oakheart, and let her Clan believe the kits were taken by a badger, and she later became leader. Goosefeather gave her the prophecy: "You will blaze through the forest like fire; only water can destroy you." Bluestar looked to Rusty while Tigerclaw continued searching for revenge on ThunderClan. Bluestar gave her ninth life to lead the dog pack over the gorge. Stonefur and Mistyfoot found her, and they forgave her before she died.
On Pinestar's page, Bluestar is mentioned twice: once that she was born while Pinestar still led ThunderClan, and the other time that her mother, Moonflower, was killed in a WindClan raid. She is once again brought up on Goosefeather and Featherwhisker's page. Goosefeather was interested in her. He interpreted a burning branch that fell between Bluepaw and a fox as a prophecy, though Bluepaw refused to believe him. He later encouraged her to become deputy instead of Thistleclaw, and by having her do so, set his Clan's future. She was glad to have Featherwhisker by her side as her medicine cat.
She is said to have met Rusty on Firestar's page, and he later became her deputy after uncovering Tigerclaw's plan to kill her. Bluestar is also mentioned on Spottedleaf's section, where it says that Spottedleaf saw the same qualities in Firepaw as she did. Graystripe's profile mentions that he had fallen in love with a RiverClan warrior, like Bluestar once had.
Bluestar has many more minor mentions. On Yellowfang's page, it briefly says that Bluestar punished Firepaw for giving a piece of fresh-kill to Yellowfang, as it was against the warrior code, and that Yellowfang got her to let Brokenstar shelter in ThunderClan. It is told on Cinderpelt's page that the StarClan cats who warned Cinderpelt of her death were led by Bluestar.
Bluestar appears during Brambleclaw's leader ceremony. She gives him his third life with the gift of clear judgement of character. She solemnly states how she didn't always possess it herself, apparently referring to how she failed to anticipate Tigerstar's betrayal, to which Brambelclaw reminds her that she found Firestar, reassuring her. On Tigerstar's page, she is said to have made him her deputy, though she was watching Rusty more closely. He tried to lure her to the Thunderpath, but Cinderpaw was unfortunate enough to go instead. She had held Brokenstar in ThunderClan's camp. Though she does not appear, she is mentioned during Tigerclaw's leader ceremony to have made Tigerclaw her deputy because she saw him as a good future leader. On Onestar's section, it is told that Onewhisker got Bluestar to call off her accusations against WindClan of prey-stealing. On Crookedstar's page, it mentions that Oakheart fell in love with Bluefur and compromised his loyalty to RiverClan. This is also mentioned on Mapleshade's page.
Bluestar plays a major part on Oakheart's profile. He was fascinated by her, and looked for her during Gatherings, despite Crookedstar's warnings. The two met at Fourtrees, where Bluefur taught him to climb, and Oakheart knew he had fallen in love with her forever, even though they knew that one night together was all they could have. Later, Bluefur told him she was expecting his kits, and he tried to plan a future in which they would both either be in RiverClan or ThunderClan, but she insisted that she raise them alone in ThunderClan. She brought the kits to him so she could become deputy.
She is next spoke of on Mistystar and Stonefur's page. She had mothered the two and took them to RiverClan so she could become deputy. She later told them that she was their mother, and died next to them after falling into the gorge. In SkyClan's introduction, Cloudstar says that Bluestar had sent Firestar to restore his Clan. Bluestar is last said to have made Tigerclaw deputy on Ravenpaw and Barley's profile.

In the Short stories and plays

The Elders' Concern

None of the ThunderClan elders agree with Bluestar's naming Fireheart deputy, especially because he was a former kittypet, and the deputy ceremony took place after the time allotted by the warrior code. Halftail suggests that Bluestar has stopped caring what StarClan thinks, which is partly true. Smallear growls in response that he will never forgive Bluestar for what she has done.

In the Novellas

Pinestar's Choice

Bluepaw watches in horror as Hawkheart attacks and kills her mother. She wails as the WindClan medicine cat tosses Moonflower to the ground. Pinestar notes that she had only been made an apprentice two sunrises ago, and now she's battling, watching her mother die. Bluepaw stumbles to her mother's body and tries to wake the still she-cat up. Pinestar pads over to her, and Bluepaw asks why she won't wake up. He tells her that Moonflower is dead, and the apprentice protests, claiming that warriors aren't supposed to kill one another.
Hawkheart pads up to her and growls that she had tried to destroy the medicine supply. Bluepaw mews that they were supposed to do it because StarClan told them too. She asks Pinestar for confirmation that it was StarClan's will, as Goosefeather said. Hawkheart huffs, questioning that they actually believed Goosefeather, to which Bluepaw asks Pinestar what he meant.
The apprentice turns back to her dead mother, attempting to wake her up again, saying this was a mistake and that she didn't have to be dead. Swiftbreeze gently pulls Bluepaw away.
Later, Bluepaw and Snowpaw are seen carefully dividing a squirrel between the two of them. Pinestar notes that they had been brave during the battle where their mother died, and deserved to be made warriors.
When Leopardfoot is kitting, Bluefur looks at Pinestar as if he had grown an extra head when he says that he doesn't want to go into the nursery with her. Featherwhisker sends Bluefur to get herbs for him. After Bluefur returns, Pinestar says they should eat, as starving themselves won't make the kits come any quicker, to which the blue-gray she-cat glares at him.

Bluefur is seen scolding Whitepaw when he plays with feathers on a thrush with Spottedkit, stating they should be used for the elders' nests. Thistleclaw steps up, saying the game was his idea. Bluefur mutters he should know better too and snatches the thrush away. Tigerpaw bounds up to show Thistleclaw their latest battle move. Bluefur is shocked, as the move is very advanced for a young apprentice. She criticizes Thistleclaw's teaching methods, remarking Tigerpaw only cared about fighting and that there was more to that in being a warrior. Thistleclaw responds he'll teach him everything he needs, though his claws slid out as if he wants to attack her. Bluefur eyes him coolly before she pads away.
Spottedpaw sees Bluefur on a patrol with Thistleclaw and Tigerpaw when they encounter a tiny black kit. She watches from the brush as Bluefur defends the kittypet against Thisteclaw and Tigerpaw, pulling Tigerpaw off the helpless kit so it can get away. Bluefur turns on Thistleclaw, threatening to report him to Sunstar. Thistleclaw growls they were only defending their borders and continues on with Tigerpaw. Bluefur stares after, fur bristling with rage.
Bluefur intervenes when Spottedpaw is fussing over Stormtail. She sides with her father who insists he's fine and they leave for a patrol. Bluefur is renewing a scent marker as Spottedpaw appears again, looking for Stormtail. The patrol find him by a holly bush, too weak to move. Bluefur and Speckletail support him as they take him to Featherwhisker. Bluefur is seen lying beside Stormtail in the medicine cats' den, comforting him.
Spottedpaw approaches her afterwards, angry that she didn't listen to her about Stormtail. Bluefur is startled, then retorts she wasn't a medicine cat so she had no reason to listen to her and leaves.

Tigerclaw's Fury

Bluestar asks Tigerclaw if he has anything to say in his defence. Tigerclaw throws abuse at her, saying that he would have made ThunderClan better. In response to her former deputy, Bluestar asks him to consider about how many cats would've died because of that. Bluestar exiles him right on the spot, allowing no more argument and recruiting. Tigerclaw insults Bluestar mentally, thinking that she is weak, and foolish. A voice inside Tigerclaw’s head says Thistleclaw would have clotted his ears for being defeated by Fireheart and a star-crazed cat. Tigerclaw thinks that he wouldn’t have taken on the leader of ThunderClan, and everything would be different if he didn’t let Bluestar become leader. Tigerclaw also remembers the cats that swore to fight beside him until he killed Bluestar. He also thinks it is RiverClan’s interest to keep Bluestar leader of ThunderClan since she is weak. He also asks how dare Bluestar drive him out as he won her many battles, defended and hunted for the Clan. In the end, she treated him worse than a fox ridden with lice. The voice inside his head taunts to not let Fireheart and Bluestar catch him. Tigerclaw thinks Bluestar would find the weakest elder and give them fresh-kill if she finds any.
Blackfoot mentions Fireheart, and Tigerclaw hisses he has no right to speak to Bluestar as if he has Clan-blood. He is determined Bluestar is weaker than ever, and weakening her Clan by putting faith in Fireheart. He claims to his rogues he chose to leave as Bluestar listens to Fireheart move than anyone else. It’s also mentioned Fireheart overpowered him in Bluestar’s den. He remembers Bluestar’s order to leave as he faces ThunderClan territory. A fire takes hold of ThunderClan and Tigerclaw goes to investigate. Frostfur nudges Bluestar up a path that leads out of camp. She stumbles as she half-runs, caught in the crowd of fleeing Clan cats. Tigerclaw sees Fireheart in charge and wonders if Bluestar has made him deputy. After the fire is out, Tigerclaw wonders if Bluestar has brought her Clan back to their camp. When Tigerclaw is finally made leader, he thinks he needs to be ready to meet Bluestar. She will be forced to see him as equals as he stands at the head of a Clan that could challenge her own.

Leafpool's Wish

As Leafpool dreams, Bluestar calls for her to come out as she, Yellowfang and Lionheart have been waiting for her. Lionheart introduces himself, stating he was with Bluestar when Firestar came to the forest. Bluestar beckons Leafpool to come, and leads her into a forest, where three stars shine in the sky. Leafpool asks Bluestar what they are, but Bluestar only walks into a clearing and gestures Leafpool to sit down. Leafpool asks if she has a prophecy, and Bluestar says not really. She explains they wanted to tell her that her path will twist in different directions she cannot see yet. She explains there are cats she will soon meet that will shape her future. Bluestar mews whatever happens, they will always be with Leafpool, her eyes glittering with kindness and concern. Leafpool asks if she can tell more, but Bluestar tells that StarClan can’t see everything, her path vanishes into shadow but she promises they’ll be there every step of the way. Leafpool is comforted by Bluestar’s word, and is given the confidence she can face her future. Half a moon later, Leafpool figures out what the three StarClan cats meant.

Mistystar's Omen

Mistyfoot briefly thinks of Bluestar in passing, as Mistyfoot thinks back to when it was discovered Bluestar was her and Stonefur's mother. She thinks of how he was killed when it was discovered they were half-Clan. Leopardstar says she never deserved Mistyfoot's forgiveness for it. Mistyfoot also thinks of how she stayed with Bluestar as she died, just as she did with Leopardstar.
Bluestar later appears during Mistyfoot's leadership ceremony. She tell Mistyfoot how much she missed her. She gives Mistyfoot a life of choosing what's right, despite how hard it may be. Mistyfoot tell her that she knows Bluestar only tried to do what was right. Bluestar thanks her and leaves so Mistyfoot can get her next life.

Ravenpaw's Farewell

Ravenpaw remembers Bluestar in her time as leader of ThunderClan, seeing her jump onto a highrock to call for a Clan Meeting. At the Whispering Cave, Ravenpaw sees Bluestar alongside Whitestorm and Lionheart. Bluestar dips her head in respect and says they are honored to see him again. Ravenpaw goes to stand, but Bluestar urges him to stay down. Ravenpaw is offered a full warrior name but he refuses politely. Bluestar nods, saying she figured he would feel that way.
Bluestar traces her paw along a stone, guessing he knows his life is ending soon and offers him a place in StarClan, mentioning he would be welcome. Ravenpaw refuses again, wanting to stay with Barley even after death. When Rileypaw and Bellapaw become apprentices, Ravenpaw remembers his own apprentice ceremony and hearing Bluestar say his apprentice name for the first time.

Bluefur: "Enough, Thistleclaw! You've taught him a lesson. I'm sure he won't come back here again. Let him go."
Thistleclaw: "Traitor! You're a coward and a fool! I've never seen you once defend our borders. What kind of warrior are you? Do you know that RiverClan warrior?"
Bluefur: "He's called Oakheart. I've seen him at Gatherings."
Thistleclaw: "I didn't ask you if you knew who he was, I asked if you knew him. Better than the warrior code allows."
Bluefur: "Of course not."
Thistleclaw: "We need more patrols. It's too easy to invade. Too many invaders. Only fear will keep them out. We must mark the borders with the blood of our enemies."
—Thistleclaw confronting Bluefur Bluestar's Prophecy, page 459

Spottedpaw: "Thistleclaw can't be that important to you! You have three other lives to think about now!"
Bluefur: "I love them so much. But I love my Clan, too. I could never wish they hadn't been born, but why now? What if my Clan needs me more than they do?"
—Bluefur contemplating giving up her kits Spottedleaf's Heart, page Chapter 10

"Love can lead a cat so far astray that it becomes too late to turn back."
—Bluefur Spottedleaf's Heart, page Chapter 10

"I can't be what I want to be. I need to be as strong as fire. I need to save my Clan. It is for the best. I hope they know that they have been loved. Even if they don't remember me, I hope they'll know that."
—Bluefur to Oakheart Bluestar's Prophecy, page 475

"Oh, my precious kits. I'll always come back."
—Bluefur to her kits Bluestar's Prophecy, page 481

Bluefur: "What about me? I have ambition."
Sunstar: "Only to serve your Clan. That is why I choose you. You have suffered much and lost much, and yet you still serve your Clanmates, putting their needs before yours, willing to sacrifice all for the sake of your Clan."
Bluefur: "My Clan is all I have now. I will give every breath in my body to serve it."
—Sunstar telling Bluefur why he chose her to be deputy Bluestar's Prophecy, page 496

"But Fireheart was not sure he understood at all. His mind was whirling. On one paw he could picture the young warrior. Bluefur; fiercely ambitious, determined to do what was best for her Clan, even if it meant unimaginable sacrifices. On the other, he saw a mother grieving for the kits she had abandoned so long ago. And what was probably more real to him than either; the gifted leader who had done what she felt was best and borne the pain of it alone."
—Fireheart's thoughts about Bluestar Forest of Secrets, page 235

"StarClan cares for every cat in the forest, from the blind, helpless kit to the oldest elder lying in the sun. We watch over them. We send omens and dreams to the medicine cats. But the storm was no doing of ours. Scourge and Tigerstar wade through blood to power because that is their nature. We watch, but we do not interfere. If we did, would you truly be free? Firestar, you and every cat have the choice of whether or not to follow the warrior code. You are not playthings of StarClan."
—Bluestar to Firestar about StarClan not ruling the forest The Darkest Hour, page 263

"And I will die a tenth time to defend ThunderClan!"
—Bluestar vowing to fight the Dark Forest The Last Hope, page 4

"Cats can learn to follow the warrior code, but they cannot always learn to have the compassion and courage that comes from faith."
—Bluestar introducing ThunderClan The Ultimate Guide, page 3

Thank you for raising Whitestorm. It was easier to leave him, knowing he had you. Use all your nine lives for your Clan. We will be with you at every step. If you need us, we will come. You were chosen long ago, and StarClan has never regretted its choice.
