"Cloverfoot will be ShadowClan's deputy now. Like Juniperclaw, she once turned her back on the Clans...But I believe that, like Juniperclaw, she is ready to serve her Clan honestly and in good faith."
Tigerstar announcing the new deputy in The Raging Storm, chapter 25

Cloverfoot is a gray tabby she-cat.[1]

She is born to Snowbird and Scorchfur, along with her littermates Berryheart and Rippletail, and will later be the aunt to Needlepaw, the future daughter of Berryheart. When her niece sparks a rebellion with ShadowClan's apprentices, Cloverfoot agrees with them, and eventually leaves with Berryheart and her younger sister Beepaw to join Darktail's group, and eventually becomes part of the Kin with the majority of ShadowClan. However, she realizes her mistake upon seeing Darktail's true nature, and escapes along with Slatefur, where they are reunited with Sparrowtail and Berryheart, and the four make a new home inside a disheveled Twoleg nest. They are eventually found by Tigerheart and Spire, and she joins their patrol back to the lake territories. Along the way, she becomes the aunt to Hollowkit, Spirekit and Sunkit. She witnesses Tigerheart's death, and eventually reaches Clan territory, and she is reunited with the rest of her family. Cloverfoot is witness to Tigerheart's resurrection to become Tigerstar, and she rejoins ShadowClan with the rest of her Clanmates.

Following her rejoining ShadowClan, she is among the hardest to rebuild her Clan and forms a friendship with Alderheart when he helps heal Puddleshine. When Juniperclaw is demoted of his deputy role, Tigerstar chooses to promote her to be his new deputy, claiming that while she turned her back on ShadowClan, he believes that she will serve him and ShadowClan with honesty and good faith.

History

Tigerheart's Shadow

After Tigerheart finds Slatefur and Berryheart, the white tom mentions Cloverfoot and Sparrowtail. He exclaims that they're with them. Tigerheart questions Slatefur, breath caught in his throat, and Slatefur nods. He informs the loner that the two cats are hunting. Shortly after, Cloverfoot returns with Sparrowtail, carrying a rabbit, but he drops it upon seeing Tigerheart and his small group of cats. Cloverfoot agrees with Slatefur that they should talk somewhere warmer, suggesting that they go back to their abandoned Twoleg den. When Spire insists that they come with them to the Clans, Cloverfoot and the others look alarmed. Cloverfoot uneasily explains that they've stayed away from the lake because they weren't sure whether ShadowClan would accept after they had betrayed them for the rogues and fought against the Clans.
Doubtful that he can trust them, Tigerheart meets Cloverfoot's gaze and asks if she and the other three would ever join the rogues again. Cloverfoot's eyes flash in alarm at the question, while Sparrowtail and Berryheart press together. Slatefur lifts his chin and replies with a firm no for all four cats. He explains that they chose to join Darktail because they thought he was strong, but they've realized how wrong they were, and they will spend the rest of their lives making it up to ShadowClan, if they agree to take them back in. Tigerheart reponds by saying that ShadowClan might not have any choice, as they lost so many warriors during Darktail's reign. He admits that he left ShadowClan to give Rowanstar a chance to lead. Shocked, Slatefur asks why, since he was Rowanstar's son and his strongest ally. Tigerheart explains that he was undermining his father, and he couldn't stay in ShadowClan since Rowanstar needed to regain his leadership. Sparrowtail, obviously not wanting to dwell on the past, asks Tigerheart where his camp is, since Tigerheart has kits with him. Blaze asks if the four cats were coming back to the Clans with them, and Tigerheart turns to the four loners, and asks if they are. The four exchange glances. Eventually, Slatefur looks at Tigerheart, and confirms that they are ready to go home.
While the journeying cats are travelling alongside the Silverpath, a Thundersnake is heard, and Tigerheart orders Cloverfoot, Ant, Slatefur and Cinnamon to get off the tracks. However, Lightkit does not hear him, and is nearly killed until Spire intervenes. Spire eventually mutters that they need to leave the Silverpath. which causes Cloverfoot to ask why the Thundersnake was going so fast. Blaze says they need to leave the Silverpath, repeating Spire, and Cloverfoot retorts that Tigerheart said it led to The lake. Blaze mews that they'll have to find another way. After some debate, Spire convinces the cats to leave and follow him.
Some time later, Cloverfoot calls out to Tigerheart, asking him to tell Spire to slow down, as Berryheart cannot keep up. Tigerheart agrees, and leaves the gray tabby with her sister and the rest of the other cats. Berryheart manages to catch her breath, and follows up with Cloverfoot close by her. Dovewing explains that the kits are tired, to which Pouncekit declares they are not. Tigerheart asks his daughter if she wants a badger ride, to which she eagerly agrees to. Cloverfoot offers to carry Lightkit, allowing the young kit to scramble onto her back. After travelling more, the cats encounter Twolegs on boats, and Cloverfoot asks what they are, alarmed. Tigerheart eventually deduces to crossing the bridge, and sends Cloverfoot and Slatefur across to ensure it's safety, and the two make it across by squeezing through a fence. However, the bridge begins to lift to allow boats to pass, and when Spire falls saving Pouncekit, Cloverfoot streams to the edge with Tigerheart, Blaze, Slatefur and Cinnamon to try and find him, but to no avail. Cloverfoot and Cinnamon scurry alongside the bridge's edge, trying to find the black tom. Left without a healer, Cloverfoot suggests going back to the Silverpath, but Ant rebukes that it would take too long. Cloverfoot snorts that they could be walking for moons without a guide. The travelers eventually concede to contine on, and make camp shortly thereafter.
Tigerheart decides to give Spire an honorary warrior name, and announces his decision to do so. Cloverfoot frowns at him, asking how. Tigerheart argues that he died honorably for them and deserves it. Cloverfoot reminds him that Spire was dead, and it could not be done properly. Sparrowtail mews that Tigerheart is not a leader, to which Dovewing hisses that he is the leader of the patrol. Berryheart asks how they can honor some cat who never knew ShadowClan nor was a ShadowClan warrior. Cloverfoot steps in, and says that Spire knew all of them, and by protecting Tigerheart's kits, he had done more for ShadowClan in the past few moons then any of them have. Tigerheart, grateful that someone understands, looks at Cloverfoot, to which she says that she thinks he deserves a warrior name. Tigerheart decides to name him Spiresight, and Cloverfoot sits vigil for her fallen friend with the rest of the cats. During this time, Berryheart begins to kit, and Cloverfoot helps prepare for it with Cinnamon. When it is over, Cloverfoot becomes the aunt to Hollowkit, Sunkit and Spirekit. A moon later, Blaze brings in a fat squirrel, to which Cloverfoot tells him that they don't need any more prey, and Tigerhearet hushes her, since Berryheart is feeding three kits. When Dovewing explains that Shadowkit has had a dream, Cloverfoot sits beside Ant and Cinnamon, anticipating the reveal. When Shadowkit explains it, she doubts that a kit can lead them home, though some debate is had, the older cats decide to leave in a quarter moon when Berryheart's kits are old enough.
Cloverfoot heads out with Sparrowtail when they chose to leave, intent on finding prey with Slatefur and Ant. Soon after, Tigerheart saves Hollowkit from an owl, and suffers critical internal injuries, and Cloverfoot clusters around him with Ant, Blaze, Slatefur and Sparrowtail, obviously worried for his well being. Dovewing frantically asks Cinnamon if she can cure Tigerheart, and Blaze responds that they never had to treat injuries like Tigerheart has. Cloverfoot tries to assure everyone that the dark tabby tom is just shaken up, and to let him rest, but Tigerheart detects the lie in her mew, and knows he is going to die. As the cats try and move Tigerheart, Cloverfoot reminds them that the dying tom said no more then a two day walk is needed to get back to the Lake. Dovewing announces they are going to leave now in that case, and Sparrowtail tells her that her mate cannot walk that distance, and Cloverfoot says that he will if they help him. Though the cats do their best to get Tigerheart back to Clan territory, he succumbs to his injuries, much to everyone's horror. Tigerheart, in StarClan, sees Berryheart, Cinnamon and Cloverfoot shielding the six kits from his corpse, being carried by Slatefur and Sparrowtail.
When Tigerheart is resurrected as Tigerstar, Puddleshine tells him that Cloverfoot, Slatefur and the others carried him home, and Tigerstar soon sees the she-cat sitting with the fellow cats she had traveled back with. Upon seeing him, Cloverfoot explains that when they got to Clan territory, it was Puddleshine's idea to get him to the Moonpool. She listens to her new leader's speech, and rejoins ShadowClan with her family once more.
Cloverfoot appears in the manga. The gray tabby comes across Berryheart and her mate, Sparrowtail, in an abandoned Twoleg den. Berryheart joyfully greets her and Slatefur. Eventually, however, reality comes back and Cloverfoot expresses shame over their decision to join Darktail, asking why they even supported him to begin with. Slatefur states that they merely went along with him when he said he was the strongest, but Cloverfoot counters that because of their naivety ShadowClan is now gone. She asks how ShadowClan can forgive them now, and Berryheart reassures her that soon StarClan will guide them home.

In the A Vision of Shadows arc

The Apprentice's Quest

Cloverfoot does not formally appear in The Apprentice's Quest, but is listed in the allegiances.

Thunder and Shadow

Cloverfoot is part of a ShadowClan patrol alongside Tigerheart and Rippletail. Rippletail asks if ThunderClan lets out kits at night to help with medicine cat duties, and Cloverfoot pads around them, asking if that was a bit dangerous.
She later defects from ShadowClan to become one of Darktail's rogues, as well as Beepaw and Berryheart. She goes out hunting for prey, and Needletail hopes she and Roach have ended up getting a better catch than them. She's in the camp when they return, standing beside a plump rabbit and a thrush, and sniffs that it didn't take long to get when Sleekwhisker is surprised to see her.
After Darktail and his cats come into ShadowClan's camp to take over, Violetpaw sees her beside Needletail and Sleekwhisker.

Shattered Sky

Cloverfoot is seen in the line of rogues that are preparing to attack RiverClan and take over the territory. Later, when Lionblaze, Alderheart, Ivypool, and Sparkpelt try to sneak the elders, Ratscar, and Oakfur, away from Darktail's territory, Cloverfoot and Nettle are mentioned to be hunting.

Darkest Night

Cloverfoot is mentioned by Rowanstar, alongside his other missing Clanmates. While Rowanstar is unsure of where they have gone, many are shocked that they have not returned to their ShadowClan kin.
When Leafpool reveals that Tree, a special visitor, is able to raise the spirits of ShadowClan's fallen, ShadowClan learns more about Cloverfoot's residence. Puddleshine asks Lioneye, Mistcloud, and Dawnpelt if they know where Cloverfoot is. They reply that if Cloverfoot is not among the fallen cats present or in StarClan, then it is likely that she is still alive.

River of Fire

Cloverfoot is one of the four ShadowClan warriors that are at the Moonpool when Alderheart and Voletshine arrive to check that Tigerheart is actually dead. As the sun fades and the first stars and moon begin to appear in the sky, she whispers that whatever happems, it will be good to back to the ShadowClan camp as it never stopped feeling like her home.
Violetshine miserably puts in that ShadowClan no longer exists and had joined SkyClan, causing the former ShadowClan warriors to stare at her in horror with bristling fur. They ask about what happened to Rowanstar and ShadowClan and so Violetshine explains; Cloverfoot asks if they all joined SkyClan, her eyes wide and pleading like she doesn't want to believe it. Cloverfoot then witnesses Tigerheart come back as Tigerstar, and chants his new name along with the former ShadowClan cats. Tawnypelt pushes her way past Cloverfoot and Slatefur to see Tigerstar, overjoyed at the sight of her son. Cloverfoot then rejoins ShadowClan with the rest of the former ShadowClan cats.
Alderheart later mentions her to Fuzzball, trying to tell Cloverfoot's brother Buster a message; that Darktail is dead, ShadowClan is okay, and his littermates Cloverfoot and Berryheart have returned to the Clan.

The Raging Storm

Cloverfoot is spotted by Tree and Violetshine, happily hunting by herself in the undergrowth. Tree tells her that he told Hawkwing that the best prey lives close to the lake, but the SkyClan deputy told him that in newleaf, prey is good everywhere, and Violetshine realizes he is trying to catch Cloverfoot's attention. Violetshine says that it's better in greenleaf, and Cloverfoot, annoyed, asks if they need to speak so loudly as she's trying to hunt. Tree and Violetshine apologize, but Cloverfoot bristles her fur, to which Tree ignores, and says that since SkyClan territory is so prey-rich, their apprentices will grow faster then nettles. Cloverfoot rebukes that ShadowClan is well fed too. Tree, pretending to be intrigued, asks how ShadowClan is faring since the fall. Cloverfoot's fur flattens, and says they've reinforced the camp wall and the camp is better then ever. Tree says that Tigerstar must be a good leader, to which Cloverfoot puffs out her chest, and affirms he is a great leader. Tree asks if he is tougher then Rowanclaw, and Cloverfoot confirms he is, as Tigerstar is keeping all his cats fed and battle ready so ShadowClan can be stronger in the future.
Tree sympathetically blinks that it's good considering all that ShadowClan has been through, and Cloverfoot shrugs, saying it feels right. Tree presses on, saying that Hawkwing claimed strong borders make strong neighbors. Violetshine mews that it's hard to stray across a well-marked border. Cloverfoot, tipping her head suspiciously, mutters she guesses so. Tree, realizing Cloverfoot's suspicions, switches the subject, asking how Blazepaw, Antpaw and Cinnamonpaw are faring in ShadowClan. Cloverfoot replies they love it, especially Blazepaw, admitting that it was like the young tom was born to be a warrior, her eyes shining as she speaks. Violetshine asks if it's hard for them to detect the border scents, and Cloverfoot, now beginning to clue into Tree and Violetshine's true motives, says the three seem to do okay. Tree attempts to assure her that he almost crossed the SkyClan/ShadowClan border if not for Violetshine, and Cloverfoot, distrust in her gaze, backs away, meowing that she promised that she would find a shrew for Blazepaw, and disappears into the undergrowth.
She and Scorchfur guard the entrance to the medicine cat den in ShadowClan's camp while Alderheart works on trying to save Puddleshine, whispering to one another, and Alderheart notes that Tigerstar ordered the daughter and father to guard the den day and night, and Scorchfur and Cloverfoot promised to not leave. Alderheart begins separating dried old herbs from fresh ones, and Cloverfoot thrusts her head in, demanding to know what he was doing. Alderheart evenly says he is separating herbs, and Cloverfoot asks if he isn't destroying Puddleshine's stocks. Alderheart asks why he would, since he is a medicine cat and Puddleshine is a friend of his. Scorchfur asks if everything is alright, and Cloverfoot grunts that she is watching Alderheart sort herbs. After a few moments of awkward silence, he tells the she-cat that she needs more thyme.
Cloverfoot asks how she is supposed to know what the herb looks like, and Alderheart pushes a dried stalk of thyme towards her, remarking that the scent is unmistakable. He adds that they'll need watermint, borage, and nettles. He asks if she knows what nettles are, and Cloverfoot snaps that of course she does. Stonewing comes into the den, asking if Alderheart can help him with a thorn in his paw. Cloverfoot asks why he can't get it out himself, and Stonewing shudders that it's in deep. Alderheart says he can, eyeing Cloverfoot warily. After he helps Stonewing, Cloverfoot mutters that Alderheart might as well take over his duties. Scorchfur then hollers in, explaining that Berryheart is outside with Hollowkit, who has a fever. Cloverfoot asks if it's safe to have the queen and kit in the den, and Alderheart, stunned, asks if Cloverfoot really thinks he would harm a kit. Cloverfoot nods to Puddleshine, asking if he is contagious. Alderheart says he is not, and Cloverfoot lets her sister and nephew into the medicine den. As Alderheart gives Berryheart some tansy for her son, he sees Cloverfoot and Berryheart exchange a glance, before Cloverfoot's gaze flickers to him, and he is surprised to see respect in her eyes, and he nods a thanks to her before continuing sorting herbs.
Yarrowleaf bursts through the medicine den some time after, as Scorchfur, Cloverfoot and Alderheart had dozed off. Startled by her younger sister, Cloverfoot lurches forward, asking whats wrong. Yarrowleaf asks Alderheart to come to the nursery, as something is wrong with Shadowkit. Alderheart gathers his medicine and dashes off with Yarrowleaf to the nursery, and Alderheart realizes Shadowkit is having a seizure. He notices Cloverfoot peering into the nursery, and asks her to fetch the thyme he mentioned earlier. Cloverfoot nods, her eyes wide with concern, and dashes off to fetch the medicine. She quickly returns, and gives Alderheart the medicine. As he prepares to give it to Shadowkit, Tigerstar stops him, sniffing the leaves suspiciously. Dovewing asks her mate if he doesn't trust Alderheart, and Cloverfoot steps forward, telling her leader that he can trust him, as he helped both Hollowkit and Stonewing, and knows the ThunderClan medicine cat only wants to help. Tigerstar is unconvinced by his warrior's words, and Alderheart decides to ignore the leader and help Shadowkit. Afterwards, Shadowkit recovers, and Tigerstar orders Cloverfoot to check on the other kits. She dips her head and pads off in response to her leader's command.
After Shadowkit recovers, he helps Alderheart in the medicine den. Puddleshine awakens, and notes that some herbs are too fresh to be of his stores. Alderheart explains that Cloverfoot gathered them, and Puddleshine tells him that it wasn't like her to help out with medicine cat duties, asking if Tigerstar made her do it. Alderheart tells him that she actually volunteered, and Puddleshine, content, tells his friend that he's made himself popular.
At a gathering, Cloverfoot is seen flanking behind Juniperclaw with Scorchfur and Stonewing. During the gathering, Alderheart says they must put an end to conflict, and Cloverfoot speaks out that they must protect their borders.
Alderheart returns to ShadowClan, and he is met by Cloverfoot, Berryheart and Juniperclaw. The gray tabby asks what he is doing on their territory, and Alderheart explains that he was there to check on Puddleshine's wounds. Cloverfoot says that he is doing great, while Juniperclaw says that Puddleshine can take care of his own wounds, Alderheart rebukes that some wounds are hard to reach. Cloverfoot and Berryheart look at Juniperclaw, expecting his answer. Juniperclaw mutters that he might as well go ahead. Alderheart mews his thanks, and runs off, knowing that the three cats were staring at him. She is mentioned by Shadowkit, who says that the gray warrior enjoys helping Puddleshine, and even got Scorchfur to help her out as well.
Bramblestar and Alderheart come to ShadowClan, she is seen sharing a mouse with her father, wanting to speak about the possibility of Juniperclaw poisoning SkyClan's fresh-kill. Bramblestar reveals to ShadowClan that Juniperclaw was spotted taking deathberry seeds from the medicine den, and was seen putting them into SkyClan's fresh-kill. Upon hearing this, Cloverfoot stops eating her mouse, and is utterly horrified when Juniperclaw admits to sneaking in and poisoning SkyClan's prey.
At the following Gathering, Tigerstar announces Juniperclaw's death, and reveals that he has chosen Cloverfoot to succeed him. He explains that while she did turn her back on her Clan, he believes, that like Juniperclaw, Cloverfoot is ready to serve ShadowClan with honesty and good faith. Scorchfur begins the chant for her name, and he is followed by Snowbird, and then the rest of the Clans. Cloverfoot puffs out her chest proudly as her name is chanted, and meets eyes with Alderheart, her eyes reflecting the moonlight, proud of her new promotion.

Slatefur: "We believed him. That's all. He said he was the strongest, and we went along."
Cloverfoot: "And now ShadowClan is gone because of it. Because of him...because of us."
Slatefur: "Well, stupid mistakes or not...Berryheart, I thought we'd never see you again. I'm so glad you're all right!"
Berryheart: "That's the trouble, [Slatefur]. I'm not all right. None of us are. But we can be. StarClan will guide us. We just...we can't give up. As long as we don't give up, sooner or later...StarClan will guide us home."

Cloverfoot: "What about him? You fed him deathberries."
Alderheart: "To cure him. Do you seriously think I’d try to kill your medicine cat?"
Cloverfoot: "If we lose him, the whole of ShadowClan will suffer."
