"It's okay to be sad. If you ever want to talk about your brother, I'm always here."
— Cherryfall reassuring Stormpaw about Benny in Bramblestar's Storm, page 456

Cherryfall is a ginger she-cat[2] with amber eyes.[9]

Cherryfall is a ThunderClan warrior who has served under Bramblestar's, the impostor's, Lionblaze's, Graystripe's, and Squirrelstar's leaderships in the lake territories. She was born as Cherrykit to Berrynose and Poppyfrost with her brother, Molekit. As an apprentice named Cherrypaw, Foxleap was appointed as her mentor, but her training was taken over by Whitewing after Foxleap was killed in the Great Battle. She served as a messenger with her brother during the battle. After becoming a warrior, Cherryfall gained Sparkpelt as an apprentice and took part in Alderpaw's journey to find SkyClan. During the impostor's reign, her father, Berrynose, was killed in a battle against the impostor. After the impostor's identity was revealed to be Ashfur, Cherryfall advocated to kill his body in hopes of Bramblestar returning.

Omen of the Stars[]

Sandstorm: "You had a big scare. But there's no need to invent mysterious cats coming to the rescue. Brightheart and your mentors did a great job scaring the fox away."
Cherrypaw: "But we're not making it up!"
—Sandstorm to Cherrypaw after a fox attack The Forgotten Warrior, page 62
Cherrykit and her brother Molekit are born to Poppyfrost and Berrynose during a greenleaf drought. She catches whitecough, but recovers and receives her apprentice name, Cherrypaw. During their training, the siblings are attacked by a fox, but are saved by an unknown cat, which the Clan believes to be Sol. Later, she is poisoned after mistaking water hemlock for parsley. In the Great Battle, she and her brother wish to fight, but are assigned instead as messengers.

A Vision of Shadows[]

"I think Sparkpaw is right. Something is . . . off about these cats. I think they're beyond our help. Is all this really what you saw in your dream?"
―Cherryfall to Alderpaw about Darktail's group The Apprentice's Quest, page 206
Cherryfall receives Sparkpaw as an apprentice and is selected to accompany Alderpaw on his quest to find SkyClan, along with Molewhisker, Sparkpaw, Alderpaw, and Sandstorm, but is horrified when a ShadowClan apprentice, Needlepaw, forces herself into the group. She grieves when Sandstorm dies of infection, and after they escape from Darktail, Cherryfall comforts Alderpaw when Molewhisker calls the quest a failure. The journey concluded, Cherryfall swears an oath of secrecy about the existence of SkyClan. When the Kin are defeated, Cherryfall doubts SkyClan's ability to stay at the lake, given the lack of territory. However, she joins Twigbranch's patrol to bring SkyClan back.

The Broken Code[]

Cherryfall: "I don't know why we're wasting time tidying up the camp when there's a more important problem we should be dealing with."
Lionblaze: "You mean Ashfur?"
Cherryfall: "We were supposed to decide what to do with him once we'd consulted the Sisters."
—Cherryfall to Lionblaze about killing Ashfur in Bramblestar's body Darkness Within, page 281
During the impostor's reign of ThunderClan, her father, Berrynose, is killed in a battle against the impostor. When Squirrelflight's status as acting leader is thrown into question following Bramblestar's spirit's continued absence, Cherryfall supports Squirrelflight against Breezepelt. She also sides with Lionblaze about killing Ashfur in Bramblestar's body, arguing that the dark warrior might be plotting something while they sit around without deciding what to do about the former StarClan spirit residing in their former leader's corpse. She later guards Ashfur's prison with Whitewing in ShadowClan's camp, and goes on a patrol to ShadowClan with Squirrelflight, Lionblaze, and Bristlefrost, with Cherryfall again arguing in favor of executing Ashfur and that Bramblestar won't be coming back.

Molepaw: "We're very sorry. What we did was wrong, and we broke the warrior code."
Cherrypaw: "It won't happen again."
Birchfall: "I believe you. Will you patrol with me tomorrow, Cherrypaw?"
Cherrypaw: "It would be an honor to patrol with any of you."
—Molepaw, Cherrypaw and Birchfall Dovewing's Silence, chapter 9
In Dovewing's Silence, Cherrypaw and Molepaw remain distrustful towards the former Dark Forest trainees. The apprentices devise a plan to lead them to a crazed, trapped fox in order to scare them. Though the fox is killed, it injures many, and the apprentices are scolded for their recklessness. Ultimately, Cherrypaw and Molepaw make amends with the Dark Forest trainees.
