"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.[8]

Gullswoop is a ShadowClan warrior under Tigerstar's leadership in the lake territories. She was born to Snowbird and Scorchfur as Gullkit along with her siblings Conefoot and Frondwhisker during the reign of the Kin. The family escaped to ThunderClan until returning to ShadowClan, where after the resurrection of Tigerstar, Gullpaw became an apprentice with Grassheart as her mentor, and later, a warrior named 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.
