"Don't ever try to fight BloodClan again. We always win."
— Bone to Barley about BloodClan in Secrets of the Clans, page 143

Bone is a massive black-and-white tom[1] with green eyes.[5]

Bone was the deputy of BloodClan under Scourge's leadership. He was one of the first to seek out help from Scourge in Twolegplace after trouble with a dog. Following the other's toms actions, Bone became a follower of Scourge, eventually becoming his second in command.

He fought in the battle against BloodClan, against the unified Clans. After killing Whitestorm, Bone himself is killed by a mob of apprentices in retaliation for his action against the Clans.

The Prophecies Begin

Tigerstar: "My name is Tigerstar. I've come from the forest to speak with your leader."
Bone: "What do you want with him?"
Tigerstar: "I'll discuss that with your leader, not with his border patrol."
Boulder: "Scourge needs to hear this ... It could be to every cat's advantage."
—Bone, Boulder, and Tigerstar The Darkest Hour, page 4

He participates in the Great Battle and kills Whitestorm, only to be confronted by Firestar and Graystripe. However, before they do anything, he himself is attacked by Bramblepaw, Ashpaw, Featherpaw, Stormpaw, and Tawnypaw, who all manage to kill him once he gives up on the fight against them.

Killed victims

This list shows the victims Bone has killed:


"Bone caught me a few times with an extra mouse in my teeth. When he snarled at me, I would give him both mice and tell him they were an offering for Scourge. He liked that, although he must have known I was lying, just as I knew that those mice would disappear into his own mouth the moment I walked away."
—Barley's thoughts about Bone Secrets of the Clans, page 139
"No cat could have doubted Bone's loyalty to his cruel leader, and perhaps it is a tragedy that he never had the chance to live the life of a true Clan warrior."
—Narrator's thoughts on Bone and his loyalty The Ultimate Guide, page 198
