"Emberkit may have been spared of future suffering. We live in the wild. Life is tough. Maybe it's best only the strongest kits survive."
Gray Wing's attempt to comfort Wind Runner over Emberkit in The First Battle, page 195

Emberkit is a brown-and-white tabby[blog 1] tom-kit[4] with a white underbelly[blog 1] and feather-soft fur.[2]

  • Emberkit's name being a single word compared to the two-word names of the Tribe cats was a mistake on Kate's part. She believes that due to dying so young, it was hard to give him a name, and thought she was thinking of dying embers when she named him.[blog 2]
  • If he were still alive, Kate thinks he would have been called Ember Heart and likes the idea of the -kit suffix tradition originating from his name.[blog 3]


  • He is mistakenly shown without white on the family tree.[7][8]
