"Everything she did seemed to reawaken his sense of loss. But as a mother of kits, she could only think of what was best for the vulnerable newborns."
This article contains major spoilers for the recently released, Daisy's Kin. Please proceed at your own discretion.
"I am no warrior, but I am a ThunderClan cat. I stay in the nursery rather than hunt and fight because that is what I do best. I care for our young as though they were my own. This is my gift to the Clan, but I do it in my own chosen name."
— Daisy deciding to keep her own name at her warrior ceremony in Dark River, page 87


Daisy is a broad-backed,[3] long-furred, cream she-cat[1] with pale blue eyes,[4] fluffy tail,[5] and soft fur.[6]

Daisy is a ThunderClan nursery queen under Firestar's, Bramblestar's, the impostor's, Squirrelflight's, and Lionblaze's leaderships in the lake territories. She was a loner who lived in the horseplace alongside her mate, Smoky, and other barnmate, Floss. Fearing that the Nofurs would take away her kits, Berry, Mouse, and Hazel, Daisy sought shelter in ThunderClan, where Firestar offered her and her kits a permanent stay. Though she grew close to Cloudtail, she respected his relationship with Brightheart, and befriended her. After the recent badger attack and Berrykit's tail injury, Daisy doubted her kits' safety in the forest and brought them back to the horseplace; however, she was persuaded to return, as her kits wanted to be warriors.

Daisy settled into Clan life, and she became Spiderleg's mate, having two kits, Rosekit and Toadkit. However, her relationship with Spiderleg didn't last long, and the two broke up after their kits were born. Even after her kits grew up, Daisy remained a permanent queen in the nursery, helping new mothers taking care of their kits, and still offered a lot for the Clan. She participated in the Great Battle, and later began to question her place in ThunderClan after the deaths of almost all her kits and the reign of Ashfur, but found purpose in assisting Smoky and raising Coriander and Little Daisy, realizing that despite her losses, she was still loved and valued in ThunderClan.

"It's too easy to forget what she does for our kits in the nursery, he thought. He remembered Ferncloud's words when she gave him one of his nine lives. She had warned him never to underestimate the cats who provided the Clan with its new members, and helped to raise them. And she was right. Daisy deserves as much honor and respect as any warrior."

He also states that he has never known how to mourn his kits properly, as he has only learned that two of his kits had died that day, blaming Daisy for it.[13] Later, Daisy manages to convince Smoky to take the kits to SkyClan, but they are intercepted on the way by the Sisters, who offer refuge and milk for Smoky's kits.[14] The pair then take the kits to the horseplace, where Daisy's Clanmates come to visit her.[15] Smoky realizes that her Clanmates truly miss her, and the pair talk about their feelings for one another.

Quotes

Firestar: "That's enough. Sheathe your claws. There'll be no fighting here."
Daisy: "Thank you for standing up for us. I couldn't help hearing what you were saying. I didn't intend to join anyone when I left home. I only wanted to save my kits from whatever happened to Floss's litter. If it's a problem having us here, we'll leave as soon as my kits are strong enough to travel."
Cloudtail: "It's not a problem."
—Daisy after she first arrives Twilight, page 142


"Her eyes, fixed on Cloudtail, were huge with sorrow. Understanding struck Brambleclaw like a flash of lightning. She was in love with the white warrior! And she must know that there would never be any cat for him but Brightheart. He let out a purr of sympathy. Perhaps Daisy was right to leave. It must hurt to see Cloudtail every day and know he would never be more than a friend."
―Brambleclaw's narration Sunset, page 192

"The reason I left...well, it was only partly because of the danger out here. I've been worried about the kits since the badger attack, but I'm their mother-I'd worry about them wherever they were. Mostly it was because I-I don't have any cat in the Clan that I'm close to. Not like you and Cloudtail."
―Daisy to Brightheart Sunset, page 207


"Every kit is different, and every kit deserves to know its father. You're missing out, Spiderleg, and if you're not careful it will be too late, and your kits won't know who you are!"
―Daisy to Spiderleg Long Shadows, page 235


"Come on, then, Sorreltail. Ferncloud and I have made you a really comfortable nest in the nursery."
―Daisy when Sorreltail is ordered to stay in the nursery The Forgotten Warrior, page 119


"We can fight, too, if we have to. We'll guard Sorreltail and the kits."
―Daisy before ThunderClan goes into battle with WindClan The Forgotten Warrior, page 306


"Replaced Floss? How can any cat replace Floss?"
―Daisy upset about Coriander being Floss' replacement Bramblestar's Storm, page 67


Daisy: "What do you think you're doing? If that's how you treat the bedding, you don't deserve to have any."
Snowpaw: "It's all wet and yucky anyway."
Daisy: "You ungrateful little furball! If you're so miserable here, feel free to go back and sleep in your den!"
Snowpaw: "Sorry."
—Daisy in a rare loss of her temper Bramblestar's Storm, page 146


"Daisy, it seemed, had gone to help Smoky with his new kits while Bristlefrost had been away fetching the Sisters. She hoped it was just to help Smoky, and not because Daisy, too, was thinking about leaving ThunderClan for good. With Spotfur's kits coming, Bristlefrost would feel better knowing that the cat who'd help raise generations of ThunderClan kits would still be around."
―Bristlefrost thinking about Daisy Darkness Within, page 279
