"There was nothing we could do."
— Gullswoop to Cinnamontail about Antfur's death in The Silent Thaw, page 127

Gullswoop is a white she-cat.[9]

Gullswoop is a ShadowClan warrior under Tigerstar's leadership in the lake territories. She was born as Gullkit to Snowbird and Scorchfur alongside her littermates, Conekit and Frondkit during the Kin's reign. Her family escaped to ThunderClan until returning to ShadowClan; however, her Clan was annexed to SkyClan. Thereafter, Tigerstar was resurrected, and she became an apprentice as Gullpaw with Grassheart as her mentor, and later earned her warrior name, Gullswoop.


In the A Vision of Shadows arc

Shattered Sky

Puddleshine delivers Snowbird and Scorchfur's kits, Gullkit, Frondkit, and Conekit. As Violetpaw removes ticks from Ratscar and Oakfur, the elders comment on how some young cats don't seem to understand loyalty, wondering what kind of world Snowbird's kits would grow up in.
She is with her littermates and mother in the Kin's nursery when Scorchfur attempts to convince Darktail to give the RiverClan prisoners some food. Violetpaw wills him not to argue with the rogue leader, thinking that his mate would struggle to feed the kits by herself.
As Violetpaw starts sneaking out cats to ThunderClan's territory, Alderheart reflects on how she had brought out Snowbird and her kits the second time, where they had settled into the ThunderClan nursery. Snowbird and her kits appear at the entrance of the nursery when Bramblestar calls a meeting, beginning with how glad he is to see the ShadowClan cats, and the kits, safe and well. At a later meeting to announce the fight to finally drive out the rogues, both Snowbird and Blossomfall come to the entrance of the nursery, all of their kits frisking around their paws.

River of Fire

When Violetshine searches for Yarrowleaf's kits, Flaxkit and Hopkit, she spots Snowbird, sleeping with her kits inside the SkyClan nursery.

The Raging Storm

She is a new apprentice, and her mentor is Grassheart.

In The Broken Code

The Silent Thaw

Gullswoop assists in hauling Antfur's body into the ShadowClan camp after he is killed falling from a tree. She tells Cinnamontail that there was nothing they could have done to save him. Shadowsight later watches Gullswoop, Snaketooth, Yarrowleaf, and Conefoot preparing to leave for the dawn patrol before confronting his father about delivering the message of the codebreakers. When Rootpaw and Tree arrive in ShadowClan to reveal the truth about Bramblestar, Gullswoop leads the two into camp with Blazefire.

Veil of Shadows

Her brother, Conefoot, dies from a skirmish against the impostor. Later on, during a major battle, her sister, Frondwhisker, is killed.
