Trivia

Interesting facts

  • Dovewing had the ability to see and hear places and cats that aren't around her,[1] but this power was revoked after her role in the prophecy had been fulfilled.[2]
  • She has kittypet blood through Cloudtail.[3]
  • She looks just like Ivypool, just missing the white splotches on her pelt.[4]

Author statements

  • Kate said that after the events of The Last Hope, Dovewing chose Bumblestripe as her mate over Tigerheart, as Bumblestripe was the more sensible option, and loving a cat from another Clan wouldn't work out well.[5] Vicky has said that they have broken up due to Dovewing still having feelings for Tigerheart.[6]
    • Kate thinks that Dovewing "just wasn't that into Bumblestripe," and that she only could think about him as a friend.[blog 1]
  • Dovewing is the reincarnation of Dove's Wing.[7] Originally, the authors said the two were not directly connected,[8] however, Vicky has since stated otherwise.[9]
    • Vicky has confirmed that when Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Dovewing die, they will be their own selves, not the cats that they were reincarnated from.[10]
    • Kate also adds that she, Jayfeather, and Lionblaze will go to StarClan when they die, and not the Tribe of Endless Hunting.[blog 2]
  • Kate says that the reason Dovewing likes Tigerstar so much is that "he is naturally everything she wishes she was" as a loyal, kind-hearted, well-meaning warrior and wanting to do her best for the Clan and trying really hard too.[blog 3]
    • Along the same lines, Kate thinks that Dovewing "secretly dreams of being a kittypet, relaxing in front of a warm fire and not having to worry about stuff".[blog 3]
  • Kate prefers Ivypool over Dovewing due to preferring the "slightly sourer sister".[blog 4]

Mistakes

  • There has been some confusion over the color of Dovewing's eyes. Kate has stated on her Facebook page that they are pale gold,[11] but Vicky has stated that she believes them to be blue on her own page.[12] They were originally mentioned as pale gold in The Fourth Apprentice,[13] but they have been called blue[14] until Thunder and Shadow[15] where it switches to green,[16] although she was mentioned with green in The Apprentice's Quest.[17] Kate has also stated her eyes are blue.[blog 5] However, on the official Warriors website, her eyes are listed as green and are most likely the canonical color.[18] Here is a list of all the times her eye color is mentioned:
  • She was mistakenly called Dovepaw twice despite already earning her warrior name.[47][48]
  • She was mistakenly called Dove-wing.[49]
  • She was mistakenly called smoky.[50]
