Author statements

  • Although she was originally part of the Three, Vicky couldn't think of a power for her, so the third cat in the prophecy was changed to Dovewing.[2][10]
    • Vicky also adds that Hollyleaf's realization that she is less special than her littermates and her dedication to the warrior code proved to be a rich storyline.[10]
  • Kate thinks that Ashfur forgave Hollyleaf for killing him once she joined StarClan.[11] This is contradicted by Vicky, who says they probably never forgave each other and avoid each other in StarClan.[12]
    • However, in Squirrelflight's Hope, Hollyleaf is shown to bear no ill feelings toward Ashfur, stating that she thinks he has changed and what occurred seems less important as time goes on.[13]
  • Hollyleaf and Fallen Leaves did love one another,[14] and if they met in StarClan, they would have been mates.[15] This is contradicted by Vicky, who says the two cats are not mates.[16][17]
    • However, the official family tree has them listed as mates, indicating they are in fact a couple.[18]


  • Hollyleaf is shown with amber eyes in The Ultimate Guide.[19]
  • She is mistakenly said to have solely discovered the truth about Leafpool and Crowfeather being her parents,[20] even though Jayfeather figured it out by himself.[21][22]
