|"Every Clan must help!"|
|— Lizardtail about SkyClan's plight in The Raging Storm, page 318|
Lizardtail is a light brown tom.
Lizardtail is a RiverClan warrior under Mistystar's leadership in the lake territories. As an apprentice, Lizardpaw was mentored by Reedwhisker following the Great Battle. After earning his warrior name, Lizardtail gained an apprentice of his own, Foxnose. He also fathered Lakeheart's kits, Harelight, Softpelt, Gorseclaw and Dappletuft. Lizardtail was sent on a patrol to bring SkyClan back to the lake and mentored Fogpaw.
In the A Vision of Shadows arc
- He is now a warrior by the name of Lizardtail and mentor to Foxpaw. His mate, Lakeheart, has also given birth to his kits, Harekit, Softkit, Gorsekit and Dapplekit.
- Lizardtail's apprentice, Foxpaw, has become a warrior named Foxnose.
- During a large storm, cats from all Clans volunteer to try and convince SkyClan to return, so that it might stop. Lizardtail goes with his Clanmates Willowshine and Icewing as they follow the trail back to the gorge. The patrol comes across an overflowing stream, and they debate how to cross it. Willowshine notes that even RiverClan cats likely wouldn't be able to swim through, glancing at her Clanmates.
- The patrol finds a tree that spans the length of the stream, and crosses over that. Lizardtail follows Hootwhisker across, and the others follow behind them. He and his Clanmates keep trekking for the rest of the day with those from the other Clans, then find shelter in a cave. They continue to follow SkyClan's trail, and catch up to the Clan and rescue them from the floodwater. As they work, Lizardtail and Hootwhisker get swept away in the water as their bridge collapses. The pair manage to haul themselves out of the water and onto rocks. Willowshine rescues Lizardtail and Hootwhisker, and once out of the water they shiver on the bank to get warm.
- At the next Gathering, Lizardtail is part of RiverClan's patrol. He calls out that every Clan must help SkyClan by giving up some territory.
In The Broken Code arc
- Lizardtail is now mentor to Fogpaw.
- After his son, Dappletuft, dies while trying to usurp Bramblestar's impostor, Mistystar announces at a Gathering that RiverClan buried Dappletuft like a rogue without a vigil. Lizardtail and his kits huddle together and mourn silently for their loss. Later, his daughter, Softpelt, dies in a battle between the Clans and his son, Harelight, is banished from RiverClan.
In the Novellas
