This page contains the trivia for Cinderpelt.


Interesting facts

  • Her niece, Cinderheart, is named after her.[1]
  • In an Erin Hunter chat, Vicky Holmes revealed that Cinderpelt had always been in love with Firestar, but Firestar had never known.[2] This is again stated in the Warriors App, saying 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.[3]
  • Cinderpelt was reincarnated as Cinderheart.[4]
    • However, it can be noted that, because Cinderpelt's spirit was able to leave Cinderheart's body without Cinderheart dying in The Last Hope,[5] 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.[6]
  • Cinderpelt, along with Brackenfur, was apprenticed before she was six moons old.[7]

Author statements

  • On Vicky's Facebook page she has noted that Cinderpelt's prologue in Twilight is very personal to her.[8]
  • Kate has said that the Erins left Cinderpelt's reincarnation of Cinderheart blurry on purpose to let readers use their own imaginations to "fill in the gaps".[9]
  • When asked if Littlecloud loved Cinderpelt when he was sick, Vicky answered that she doesn't think he ever loved her because she was much older than him, but that he was always very fond of her, like an older sister.[10]


  • She was mistakenly described as a pale gray tabby,[11] pale gray,[12] and depicted as white with stripes on her head.[13]
  • She was mistakenly called by her apprentice name, Cinderpaw, even though her name was Cinderpelt,[14][15] and she has been mistakenly shown as Cinderpelt even though she had not earned her full medicine cat name yet.[16]
