"It's really important that you get this right, Earth. […] Did you do something to offend the land? Is that why it won't talk to you? […] Did you...make dirt in the wrong place, maybe?"
— Ice teasing Earth in Tree's Roots, chapter 1

Ice is a she-cat with green eyes.[2]


In the A Vision of Shadows arc

Thunder and Shadow

In the bonus scene, Tree tells Needlepaw that his mother had left him to fend for himself before he could even hunt and take his sick sister, Ice, though unnamed, with her.

In the The Broken Code arc

Darkness Within

"Sunrise had another littermate besides Tree, called Ice. But she left us to travel with her mate. We miss her, of course, but we're not angry she chose him over us, and if she ever wants to return, we will welcome her without question. You make it sound like loving a tom is betraying your Clan."
―Snow about Ice to Bristlefrost and Needleclaw Darkness Within, page 203
Snow reveals to Rootspring, Bristlefrost, and Needleclaw that Ice found a mate and left the Sisters to be with him, as adult toms are not allowed to live with their group. Snow insists that although they miss Ice, they accepted her decision and would gladly allow her to rejoin if she wanted. However, Needleclaw and Bristlefrost disagree, arguing that the Sisters' rules forced Ice to leave in order to stay with her mate.

In the Novellas

Tree's Roots

Ice is a kit of the Sisters and one of Earth's sisters, along with Sunrise. She and Sunrise tease their brother, albeit in a friendly manner, when he fails to connect with the land as Sister-toms are supposed to. When Earth comes of age, Ice becomes very sick and thus is unable to say goodbye to her brother when he is forced out of the Sisters. The next day, when the Sisters move on, Earth sees them stop to let Ice rest and later keep her in the middle of the group.
Later, Ice, now fully recovered, confronts Earth just outside the Sisters' camp. She is surprised to see him, as their mother told her they propably wouldn't see him again for a long time. Earth reveals that he is lonely, sad and vulnerable with his kin, and wishes to return to the Sisters. Ice sympathizes with her brother's feelings, but insists that he needs to continue his wander and suggests that he search for other Sister-toms. When Earth accuses the Sisters of not knowing or caring about what happens to the toms after they are cast out, Ice insists that they do care, but that sending away toms is tradition that must be upheld. Ultimately, Earth admits that he can't return and Ice bids him farewell, hoping to see her brother again someday.
Ten moons later, Earth, now Tree, tells Pebbleshine a false version of his past, in that his mother left him to get Ice to Twopaws and that she thought they would have a better chance with only herself and Ice.

Bristlefrost: "Ice still had to leave the group to be with her mate. You wouldn't allow her to stay once she'd made her choice."
Needleclaw: "Exactly! There's no real difference between our rule and yours."
Snow: "Except that we don't shame one another for what's in our hearts."
