Fernstripe is a gray tabby she-cat.[3]

Fernstripe is a WindClan warrior under Harestar's leadership in the lake territories. She was apprenticed as Fernpaw to Crowfeather and later earned her warrior name, Fernstripe.


In the A Vision of Shadows arc

The Apprentice's Quest

Fernpaw is introduced as an apprentice of WindClan being mentored by Crowfeather.

Thunder and Shadow

In the ShadowClan camp, when several of the apprentices protest about their Clan, Sleekpaw notes that they are now only being peaceful, and Juniperpaw agrees that even WindClan doesn't respect them anymore. He recalls how, at the last Gathering, Fernpaw called them a bunch of frog-eaters, but how in the old days apprentices from other Clans wouldn't dare speak to ShadowClan apprentices like that.
At another Gathering, the ThunderClan and RiverClan apprentices enthusiastically greet each other, but Fernpaw and Brindlepaw, the WindClan apprentices, eye them eagerly yet don't move from their mentors' sides.
During another Gathering, Cypresspaw, a RiverClan apprentice at her first Gathering, shifts closer to her sister, Wavepaw, as Brindlepaw and Fernpaw pad toward them. She breathes that she didn't think there would be so many cats, but her sister reminds her of the truce.

Darkest Night

Fernpaw, along with her denmates, Brindlepaw and Smokepaw, are present at a Gathering. Alderheart notes how quiet and shy the gray tabby is, saying that usually the apprentices are bouncy and wanting to chat with the other apprentices. This time, however, Fernpaw stays close to her mentor and doesn't say anything.

River of Fire

She is now a warrior with the name Fernstripe.
