"He knew that Brindleface’s fourth kit had died soon after it was born, and she seemed to love the remaining kits even more fiercely now."
Fireheart about Elderkit's death in Fire and Ice, page 112-113

Elderkit is a tiny,[3] dark gray[1] tom.[3]

History

In The Prophecies Begin arc

Into the Wild

It is mentioned that Brindleface fights bitterly against ShadowClan's attack to protect her unborn kits.
Elderkit is born to Brindleface and Whitestorm of ThunderClan alongside Tulipkit, his other brother and sister. Graypaw tells Firepaw this, declaring to go see them. Whitestorm asks the apprentices if they are coming to see the new kits as they approach the nursery. Firepaw tells Graypaw to go see the kits first and he talks to Yellowfang. The apprentice asks the she-cat if she'll see Brindleface's new kits but the cat refuses. Firepaw declares he is seeing them anyway and it must be a good sign having new kits in the camp.
Bluestar asks Firepaw if he has come to see the new kits, referring to them as ThunderClan's newest warriors. Firepaw is suprised by her tiredness, thinking that the kits are supposed to be good news for the Clan. Firepaw replies he has and Bluestar tells him to see her when he has finished seeing the kits.
Graypaw remarks the kits are really cute before Firepaw sees them. They are warmly huddled in a nest, and it's noted that one is a tiny dark gray tom. All kits' eyes are tight shut and they squirm and mewl against their mother. Brindleface is looking proudly at her kits, declaring they are strong and healthy. Firepaw agrees that the Clan is lucky to have them and remarks he was just talking about them with Yellowfang.
Firepaw comments to Bluestar that the kits are lovely. Bluestar notes although they are lovely, they're more mouths to feed before dismissing her words.

Fire and Ice

It is noted that Elderkit died not long after he was born, causing Brindleface to love his siblings even more fiercely.

Trivia

Interesting facts

  • It can be deduced that Elderkit is Brindleface's kit who dies at the start of Fire and Ice as it is mentioned that Brindleface's three remaining kits are flecked or speckled.[4] Elderkit is the only kit not mentioned to be flecked or speckled,[3] thus he is the kit that passed away.[4]
