Smoky is hostile towards the Clan cats, but Whitetail tells the Clans to calm down. She asks if they cannot scent the kits, adding Smoky is just defending them. Brambleclaw smells and notes she is right, kits live at the barn. Daisy explains that Floss gave birth to the kits the previous day. Firestar promises they will not hurt the kits and Smoky snaps to make sure they don't.

Daisy asks Floss where her kits are, noting she recently gave birth to them and they had gone. She states their eyes were still closed and couldn't walk. Floss explains the Nofurs take the kits after they are born, they took the litter's half-siblings too. Floss wonders if the kits are taken because the Nofurs believe three cats in a barn is enough or other barns needs cats. Daisy asks if she will ever see the kits again. Floss explains one moment they are there and the next they are gone. She refuses to let on her grief for losing the kits.

Daisy leaves the barn, explaining to a ThunderClan patrol that when Floss’ kits were born, the Nofurs took them away. Squirrelflight asks why they were taken and Daisy replies no one knows. They were too young, eyes weren’t even open. Cloudtail expresses anger for the Nofur’s actions with the kits. Daisy adds that Floss will never see the kits again. Cloudtail explains to ThunderClan that Daisy will not want to return to the barn, as Floss’s kits were taken away.

Two Intruders

"The dead cats were ShadowClan’s warriors, and their own Clanmates will want to honor them on their journey to StarClan."
— Firestar justifying bringing the ShadowClan cats' bodies to their Clan in Twilight, page 12


Two Intruders
Description: Two cats[11]
Rank(s): ShadowClan warrior[11]
Appearances: Starlight, Twilight


As Leafpool guards ThunderClan camp at the top of the hollow, she hears cats quickly approaching in the trees. She believes it's a ThunderClan patrol, but recognizes the warriors' ShadowClan scent in the wind. The warriors break out of the undergrowth and hurtle straight for Leafpool. They barge into the medicine cat and Leafpool tries to warn them, but panicked yowls split the air as the intruders crash past the ThunderClan cat and fall into the hollow and all the way down into ThunderClan camp. Leafpool hisses her help to Crowfeather, just in case movement sends her falling after the ShadowClan warriors. Crowfeather rescues Leafpool and then asks Cloudtail what happened to the ShadowClan warriors. Brightheart responded they died as they broke their necks. Brightheart tells Cloudtail to return to camp and hope they do not have anymore unexpected visitors. Leafpool notes she was nearly killed by ShadowClan cats attacking ThunderClan camp, but actually felt elated.

Three sunrises later, Firestar announces that the two ShadowClan cats' bodies are still lying outside ThunderClan camp. They must be returned to their Clan. Squirrelflight notes that during the battle, two fleeing ShadowClan warriors hurtled into the hollow from the highest point, breaking their necks when they fell into the clearing. Cloudtail asks if ShadowClan would want them as they were helping Mudclaw. Firestar replies two cats were ShadowClan warriors so their own Clanmates will want to honor them as they journey to StarClan. He declares a patrol has to take their bodies to the ShadowClan border. Thornclaw volunteers to take the cats' bodies, and Firestar selects Brackenfur, Dustpelt and Cloudtail to also take them. Squirrelflight realizes this must be dangerous as Blackstar could blame ThunderClan for the warriors' deaths and use it as an excuse to attack. Firestar orders the patrol to take the ShadowClan warriors' bodies to the border by the dead tree, find a patrol and report how they died. The patrol heads out of the thorn tunnel, the ShadowClan cats' bodies lying just outside. They are hidden in a dense patch of brambles where they are protected from foxes or other carrion eaters. Later, Cinderpelt asks Leafpool if she was hurt when the ShadowClan warriors chased her. Leafpool says no. She recalls the night when the ShadowClan cats' chased her into the undergrowth at the top of the hollow and plunged into the hollow to their deaths. Leafpool almost fell with them. She spots Dustpelt and assumes the patrol that took the warriors' bodies to ShadowClan must have returned safely. They report they met a patrol who's warriors took their two Clanmates' bodies away to be buried.

Tree's mother

"One day my mother brought a mouse back to the den. It was injured, but not dead. She told me how to kill it. So I killed it, and when I did, she said "You're grown now'. The next morning, when I woke, she was gone. My sister was too."
— Tree about his mother leaving him in Thunder and Shadow, Bonus Scene, page 17


Description: She-cat[12]
Rank(s): Loner queen[13]
Appearances: Thunder and Shadow, Darkest Night, The Raging Storm


When Needlepaw asks Tree if he ever had something like a home, Tree explains his mother created a deep den in an abandoned fox den beneath a bramble bush. He explains she cared for him and her daughter when they were kits. Needlepaw asks if his mother named him, as he previously said he named himself. The ShadowClan apprentice explains that his mother must have named him when he was born. Tree replies if she did name him, he has forgotten it. Needlepaw asks what happened to his mother and Tree explains how his mother brought an injured but live mouse to their den and instructed her son to kill it. When he did, she declared he is grown up now. The next morning, she and her daughter was gone. Needlepaw is shocked she left her son and asks why. Tree guesses she believed he would be fine. Needlepaw is still confused, pointing out she took her daughter but not him. Tree explains his sister was always sick, so guessed his mother took her somewhere where she would be safe. He speculates she took her to find a home where she could be a kittypet, as Twolegs sometimes helped sick kits. Needlepaw asks why she didn't take Tree too and the loner assumed she didn't want her her son to become a kittypet as she always stated Twolegs are unpredictable, sometimes they care for kits, sometimes they kill them. She might have decided to take the risk with her sick - and likely dying - daughter. Needlepaw asks what happened to the den his mother made and he explains a bigger tom drove him away. Tree takes Needlepaw home and Needlepaw tries to explain if he tells Rowanstar about his mother and sister and everything he faced after she left, he would let him join. Tree refuses however.

Tree runs into the SkyClan patrol returning from rescuing left behind Clanmates. Hawkwing questions Tree and he explains his mother left him the moment he was old enough to hunt. Later, he mentions again but to Twigbranch about how his mother left him when he was a kit. Twigbranch comments it must have been hard and Tree says he guesses it was, explaining it happened many moons ago.
