"Why do you need StarClan to decide?"
— Dewnose questioning Bramblestar in Squirrelflight's Hope, page 132

Dewnose is a gray-and-white[3] tom[6] with amber eyes.[7]

Dewnose is a ThunderClan warrior who has served under Bramblestar's, the impostor's, Squirrelflight's, Lionblaze's, and Graystripe's leaderships in the lake territories. He was born as Dewkit to Cloudtail and Brightheart as part of their second litter, with his littermates Amberkit and Snowkit. He was later apprenticed to his older sister Whitewing as Dewpaw, and helped out his Clan during the Great Storm. He later became a warrior named Dewnose and mentor to Thriftear, as well as fathering Baykit and Myrtlekit with Sorrelstripe.

Omen of the Stars

Amberkit: "Why is Ferncloud asleep?"
Dewkit: "She's tired after all the fighting, silly. Dustpelt will wake her up."
—Amberkit and Dewkit after Ferncloud is killed The Last Hope, page 318
He is born to Cloudtail and Brightheart along with his siblings, Snowkit and Amberkit. The kits are their parents' second litter, with their older sibling being Whitewing. Dewkit and his littermates are born shortly before the Great Battle, and Brightheart, Daisy and Ferncloud protect them in the nursery. After Sorreltail dies, Lilykit and Seedkit become his foster sisters.

A Vision of Shadows

"I thought you two were meant to be helping us."
―Dewnose annoyed with Sparkpelt and Larksong Darkest Night, page 72
He is now a warrior named Dewnose, and his brother, Snowbush, has a litter of kits with Lilyheart: Larkkit, Leafkit and Honeykit. His patrol discovers Violetpaw escaping from the Kin with a plan to free the RiverClan prisoners. When she asks about Twigpaw, Dewnose comforts her when he reveals the Clan believes she has died. After Snowbush dies, Dewnose attends his vigil with the rest of his family. Twigpaw returns to rejoin ThunderClan from SkyClan, and Dewnose is among the many to doubt her loyalty.

The Broken Code

Bramblestar's impostor: "You're training him well, Dewtail."
Dewnose: "Dewnose. I'm called Dewnose."
Bramblestar's impostor: "Of course you are. I knew that."
—The impostor getting Dewnose's name wrong The Silent Thaw, page 24
Dewnose is now mentoring Thriftpaw, and his kits later become apprentices. After Thriftear becomes a warrior, Bramblestar's impostor gets Dewnose's name wrong when addressing him, referring to him as "Dewtail". Dewnose corrects him, which the impostor snaps at him afterwards. Dewnose, along with Lionblaze and Rosepetal, are convinced by Bristlefrost to thank StarClan out loud to honor the warrior code.

"We killed the traitor! ThunderClan is safe!"
―Dewkit playing with Molepaw Dovewing's Silence, page chapter 9

Whitewing: "Can you remember all the names?"
Dewpaw: "I think so. This one is for Mousefur… She was an elder, but she fought so bravely! And this one is for Hollyleaf. She had been away for a while, but she came back in time to help us when the Dark Forest attacked. And this is for Foxleap, who died of his wounds afterward… This one is for Ferncloud. She was killed by Brokenstar when she was defending the kits in the nursery. And this is Sorreltail. She hid her wounds because she wanted to take care of the kits, but she died just when we thought we had won. She was the bravest of all."
Whitewing: "And the big mark right at the top? Do you know who that stands for?"
Dewpaw: "That's our leader, Firestar. He was the best cat in the whole forest, and he gave up his last life to save us!"
—Dewpaw reciting the names of the fallen Bramblestar's Storm, page 19
