"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.[8]

Cherryfall is a ThunderClan warrior under Bramblestar's leadership in the lake territories. She was born as Cherrykit to Berrynose and Poppyfrost with her brother, Molewhisker. As an apprentice named Cherrypaw, Foxleap was appointed as her mentor, but her training was taken over by Whitewing after he was killed in the Great Battle. She served as a messenger with her brother during the battle. After becoming a warrior, Cherryfall gained Sparkpaw as an apprentice and took part in Alderpaw's journey to find SkyClan.

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 chapter 15
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.

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.
