|"I know what it's like to lose kits, Oakheart. I wouldn't wish that kind of grief on any cat."|
|— Graypool to Oakheart sadly remembering her lost kits in Forest of Secrets, page 4|
Graypool is a dark gray she-cat with yellow eyes.
Graypool was a RiverClan warrior under Hailstar's and Crookedstar's leaderships in the forest territories. Graykit was born to Fallowtail of RiverClan and Reedfeather of WindClan alongside her sister, Willowkit. Reedfeather claimed the right to his kits as their father and took them to live with him in WindClan, but Hailstar stole them back. Graypaw was apprenticed to Brightsky; however when Brightsky died during her kitting, Graypaw had Piketooth as a mentor. After receiving her warrior name, Graypool became mates with Rippleclaw, and together they had three kits, Morningkit, Splashkit, and Swankit, but all three soon died shortly after birth. Graypool adopted Mistykit and Stonekit when Oakheart brought them to RiverClan and later retired to the elders' den when she began to lose her memory.
Tigerstar, ShadowClan's leader, ran into her at Fourtrees, where she mistook him for Oakheart. She revealed the secret of the ThunderClan kits she adopted, but realized that she wasn't talking to Oakheart when Tigerstar pushed for more information. Graypool slipped trying to get away and hit her head on a rock, dying instantly. Fireheart discovered her and alerted her death to Graystripe and Mistyfoot who mourned her back in RiverClan's camp. After her death, Graypool ascended to StarClan and gave Mistystar one of her nine lives.
