This page contains the trivia for Cinderpelt.


Interesting facts

  • Her niece, Cinderheart, is named after her.[1]
  • In the Warriors App, it says that Cinderpelt had always loved Firestar from the moment she was made his apprentice, and she never stopped dreaming about what might have happened with Firestar if things had been different.[2]
  • Cinderpelt was reincarnated as Cinderheart.[3]
    • However, it can be noted that, because Cinderpelt's spirit was able to leave Cinderheart's body without Cinderheart dying in The Last Hope,[4] it appears that it is more likely that Cinderpelt was not, in fact, reincarnated, but was simply possessing Cinderheart, as the two do not share the same spirit.[5]
  • Cinderpelt, along with Brackenfur, was apprenticed before she was six moons old.[6]
  • Her gray pelt is described as embers from an old fire.[7]
