"It's too late! You clearly think I'm a waste of space. Why else would you have thrown me out of the forest? And now that I'm beginning to prove myself, you need Gray Wing to tell you what I've done. Will I ever be good enough?"
— Jagged Peak confronting Clear Sky in Thunder Rising, pages 161-162

Jagged Peak is a small gray tabby tom with blue eyes,[9] and a twisted, limp hind leg.[10]

Jagged Peak is the son of Quiet Rain in the Ancient Tribe. After his sister's death, Jagged Peak follows the group following the sun trail, and later chooses to live with his older brother, Clear Sky in the forest. However, his brother exiles him after Jagged Peak breaks his leg. He initially believes he is incapable of becoming a contributing member of the group until Holly teaches him otherwise. She gives birth to his kits, Storm Pelt, Dew Nose and Eagle Feather, and the family decides to live in the pine forest with Tall Shadow and later in WindClan.

Dawn of the Clans

"What if what? You can't protect them forever. You can't protect any cat forever, Gray Wing, no matter how hard you try to. That's a lesson I must learn, too."
—Jagged Peak to Gray Wing The Blazing Star, page 100
Jagged Peak and Fluttering Bird are members of the apart of the Ancient Tribe, and Quiet Rain's second litter. Their older brothers are Gray Wing and Clear Sky. He is outspoken, courageous and brash, and much stronger than Fluttering Bird. He mourns for his sister's death and sneaks out of the cave to follow the group following the sun trail. Gray Wing is sent to follow him and the two later meet up with the rest of the group. They arrive at their new home and Jagged Peak decides to live in the forest with Clear Sky.
While on a hunting patrol with his brothers, Jagged Peak breaks his leg falling from a tree and Clear Sky outcasts him from the group for failing to contribute. In Tall Shadow's group, Cloud Spots develops exercises for him, but Jagged Peak doubts his value to the group. He spends time with Turtle Tail's and Wind Runner's kits and watches over them during the Great Battle.
Holly, a newcomer, pushes Jagged Peak to overcome his disability, and trains him for the battle against One Eye. Holly is soon expecting his kits. She falls ill to the sickness, and while searching for the blazing star, Clear Sky apologies to Jagged Peak for sending him away. Holly recovers and she gives birth to Storm Pelt, Eagle Feather, and Dew Nose. When the group decides to split up again, Jagged Peak and Holly decide to move to the pine forest where their kits will be safer from the snow.
Quiet Rain and Sun Shadow arrive from the mountains and his mother his horrified to see Jagged Peak's lame leg and his kits' poor behavior. Holly defends her mate, and Jagged Peak and his brothers spend time with Quiet Rain before she dies. He visits Gray Wing after his kits are born, and Gray Wing reflects how grateful he is for his younger brother. After they rescue Black Ear from Slash, Jagged Peak stays by his brother's side as he dies.

Quotes

"We'll be okay. We have each other now! And did you see how I fought off that eagle? You'd have been chickfeed if it wasn't for me!"
—Jagged Peak about journeying with Gray Wing and the eagle The Sun Trail, page 73


Clear Sky: "I'm sorry Jagged Peak is hurt, but the good of the group is what's important. Every cat has to contribute, or none of us will survive. I gave Jagged Peak time to recover, but it doesn't look like he'll ever be able to hunt again."
Gray Wing: "But he's family!"
Clear Sky: "That's exactly why I had to be tough with him. The other cats won't trust me if they think I'll make exceptions to the rules for my own kin."
—Clear Sky and Gray Wing after Clear Sky turns Jagged Peak away from his group The Sun Trail, page 286


Clear Sky: "And you? What have you done to prove yourself? Well, you survived. That's as much as you can do now."
Jagged Peak: "Actually, I was responsible for looking after the camp and the cats who-"
Clear Sky: "So you stayed behind where it was safe."
Gray Wing: "Jagged Peak is being really useful, injured leg or no injured leg. He protected the cats who stayed in the hollow. In case you didn't notice, he did an excellent job of welcoming your cats into our camp. We need him, Clear Sky."
Clear Sky: "I'm sorry. I take back what I said."
Jagged Peak: "It's too late! You clearly think I'm a waste of space. Why else would you have thrown me out into the forest? And now that I'm beginning to prove myself, you need Gray Wing to tell you what I've done. Will I ever be good enough?"
—Clear Sky and Jagged Peak Thunder Rising, page 162

Thunder: "I'm sorry I interfered. I just don't think we should be-"
Jagged Peak: "Who cares what you think? I've lived more moons than you. I came from the mountains with your father."
Thunder: "I was here when those kits were born!"
Jagged Peak: "But you left, didn't you?"
Thunder: "I wanted to live with my father! What's wrong with that?"
Jagged Peak: "Clear Sky didn't want you, did he? Just like he didn't want me! He kicked you out too!"
Thunder: "Clear Sky didn't kick me out. I left."
Jagged Peak: "You left?"
Thunder: "I don't agree with Clear Sky."
Jagged Peak: "So Clear Sky didn't make you leave."
Thunder: "I came back to help my old friends!"
Jagged Peak: "And we're supposed to be grateful?"
Thunder: "No! I just-"
Jagged Peak: "You wander from moor to forest and back again, depending how you feel. Those kits-those kits were born here. They belong here and if I want to teach them how to defend what's theirs, then they should be allowed to learn!"
—Jagged Peak and Thunder arguing The First Battle, pages 47-48


Gray Wing: "Sparrow Fur-my kit-went off to find Tom the kittypet, and Owl Eyes said you gave her permission!"
Jagged Peak: "Yes, I did. Is there a problem?"
Gray Wing: "A problem? You let her go? She's just a kit!"
Jagged Peak: "I'm sorry, I thought it would be okay. After all, he is their father. And she's not a tiny kit anymore."
Gray Wing: "They have no mother now. I'm all they have, I must protect her."
Jagged Peak: "That's true. But the kits are nearly grown. They aren't helpless any more. They're old enough to make their own decisions, and all three of them wanted to train with Tom."
Gray Wing: "But what if... what if..."
Jagged Peak: "What if what? You can't protect them forever. You can't protect any cat forever, Gray Wing, no matter how hard you try to. That's a lesson I must learn, too."

Holly: "But you're going because StarClan ordered you to, not Wind Runner. Are you a WindClan cat or a StarClan cat?"
—Jagged Peak and Holly confronting Moth Flight Moth Flight's Vision, page chapter 18


Holly: "Will her kits be our Clanmates too? Even though they carry SkyClan blood?"
Jagged Peak: "And farm-cat blood."
