"It would be a good way to prove to your Clanmates that you're more interested in helping them than in wandering off on your own private missions. A mother who's so worried about taking care of her kits would want to set them a good example."
Bramblestar's impostor threatening Flamepaw in The Silent Thaw, page 198


Flamepaw is a black tom[1] with amber eyes.[3]

Flamepaw is a ThunderClan apprentice under the impostor's, Squirrelflight's, Lionblaze's, and Graystripe's leaderships in the lake territories with Lilyheart as his mentor. Flamekit was born to Sparkpelt and Larksong, along with Finchkit and Flickerkit, the latter of which was stillborn. Moments after his birth, Larksong died, and he and Finchkit were fostered by Sorrelstripe while Sparkpelt recovered from her depression. He later became an apprentice, Flamepaw. His mother and sister were exiled by Bramblestar's impostor, but they returned under Squirrelflight's temporary leadership.

History

In The Broken Code

Lost Stars

Flamekit briefly appears along with his sister Finchkit when Sparkpelt and Sorrelstripe come out of the nursery to listen to the Clan meeting. Later, Flamekit and Finchkit tumble around while being watched by Sorrelstripe as their mother speaks with the Clan deputy, Squirrelflight. When Bramblestar's body is brought to camp, he and Finchkit are noted to be staring at it with sadness, along with Baykit and Myrtlekit.

The Silent Thaw

Flamepaw is now an apprentice and his mentor is Lilyheart. Flamepaw and his sister nose around the camp wall, sniffing for signs of prey while their mentors murmur quietly from a distance. He follows along with Finchpaw, Lilyheart and Cinderheart when the gray tabby warrior takes them to follow on Mousewhisker and Baypaw for training. He eats with his mentor and Thriftear.
Later on, the tom helps Bristlefrost repair the warriors den. He finds the hole in the roof, calling down to Bristlefrost as he patches it up with threaded bracken. Flamepaw remains tending to the den when Bristlefrost is beckoned by Bramblestar to have a chat. Bramblestar furiously scolds Sparkpelt for attempting to find Lionblaze, and Flamepaw shivers in horror as Sparkpelt pleads not to be banished because her kits are still apprentices. Bramblestar orders Sparkpelt to fetch catmint near the abandoned Twoleg nest and indirectly threatens Flamepaw.

Darkness Within

Flamepaw and Myrtlepaw emerge from the apprentices' den to observe Thornclaw challenging Lionblaze about ThunderClan's leadership. Thornclaw points out that many of the Clan's leaders and deputies have been Firestar's kin, and he questions if Lionblaze will make Sparkpelt or Flamepaw his deputy. Thornclaw glares at Flamepaw, who shrinks in discomfort and leans closer to Myrtlepaw, and Lionblaze growls at the warrior. Later, Alderheart suggests that if Bristlefrost is bored, she can help Flamepaw and Baypaw to clear out the elders' bedding.

The Place of No Stars

When Graystripe returns from his wander, he orders the apprentices to take the remaining prey off the fresh-kill pile to the elders.

A Light in the Mist

Larksong asks Bristlefrost how his kits are doing, and she replies they are doing well.

In the Super Editions

Squirrelflight's Hope

Flamekit is the secondborn of Sparkpelt and Larksong, with his sister Finchkit and his brother Flickerkit. Flamekit's brother is stillborn and Larksong dies just as the siblings are born. With the death of her mate and son, Sparkpelt is unable to look after Flamekit or Finchkit because she is in a deep depression, and the two siblings are given to Sorrelstripe to be looked after.
Bramblestar and Squirrelflight, Flamekit's and Finchkit's grandparents, find peace looking over the two siblings as Sparkpelt struggles with her depression, and Squirrelflight begins to realize that she is enjoying looking after her grandchildren over having another litter with Bramblestar. Daisy begins to worry that the siblings won't see Sparkpelt as their mother anymore and instead turn to herself or Sorrelstripe because of Sparkpelt's refusal to interact with her kits.
When Squirrelflight returns from StarClan, she convinces Sparkpelt to spend time with her kits after learning that Larksong and Flickerkit would be watching over them from StarClan. When Squirrelflight and Sparkpelt go to see the two kits, Flamekit is excited to see his grandmother and initially doesn't believe that Sparkpelt wants to interact with them, but his mother soon begins to develop a proper relationship with her children, while Flamekit and Finchkit are happy that their mother wants to spend time with them.

Graystripe's Vow

When Thornclaw angrily points out the Clan's nepotism with leadership roles and Firestar's bloodline, he rhetorically yowls if Flamepaw or Sparkpelt will be named deputy next, glaring at Flamepaw.

In the Novellas

Spotfur's Rebellion

When Spotfur and Stemleaf discuss Bramblestar's strange behavior with Thriftear, Spotfur notices Flamepaw and Finchpaw out of earshot, changing out the elders' bedding. Later, she sees Flamepaw pulling a tick from Cloudtail.

Daisy's Kin

Daisy notes that Flamepaw had grown up so much, wondering when his warrior ceremony would be. Mousewhisker credits her with taking part in raising the young apprentice. A while later, she spots Flamepaw taking prey from the fresh-kill pile with his sister.
