"But I guess I used to quarrel with Honeyfern and Molepaw when they were alive."
Cinderheart to Lionblaze in Fading Echoes, page 235

Molepaw is a large,[2] black[5] tom[2] with light gray parts.[5]

He is born as Molekit, the son of Sorreltail and Brackenfur, along with his siblings. Cinderpelt dies to protect the litter from the badgers, but Leafpool arrives to finish helping Sorreltail give birth.

Between the books Sunrise and The Sight, his name becomes Molepaw, but he dies due to a greencough. His nephew, Molewhisker is named after him.

History

In The New Prophecy arc

Twilight

Molekit, along with his siblings, Cinderkit, Poppykit, and Honeykit, are born to Sorreltail and Brackenfur of ThunderClan. Although Cinderpelt, ThunderClan's medicine cat, dies to protect them during a badger attack on their camp, Leafpool arrives at the right time and helps Sorreltail safely deliver her kits.
After the badger attack, Leafpool mentions to Brackenfur that he has four healthy kits. At the mention of this, Brackenfur curls his tail in delight, and he dashes off into the nursery to see them.

Sunset

Molekit is introduced as one of Sorreltail's four kits. His mother remarks that he is the only tom, and he is said to be the biggest of her litter. He, along with his littermates, are given their names in this book.

In the Power of Three arc

The Sight

While reflecting upon the harshness of the recent leaf-bare, it is mentioned that the season brought not only hunger, but death as well. Molepaw is said to have died of a cough that had not responded to Leafpool's herbs, and that Rainwhisker, one of his uncles, had been killed by a falling branch during a storm.

Eclipse

When his sisters, Honeypaw and Poppypaw, get ready for their warrior ceremony, Sorreltail sadly remarks that her son, Molekit, should have been there as well, receiving his warrior name.

Sunrise

When Honeyfern is bitten by a snake, Sorreltail mournfully yowls that she can't lose another kit, after losing Molekit when he was so young.

In the Omen of the Stars arc

Fading Echoes

While Lionblaze and Cinderheart are talking about how Ivypaw and Dovepaw have fallen out, Cinderheart sadly reflects on the times where she used to argue with Molepaw and Honeyfern, while they were alive.

In the Novellas

Leafpool's Wish

Molekit, along with his siblings, Honeykit, Cinderkit, and Poppykit, are seen playing with each other. Sorreltail, his mother, tells Molekit and the other kits not to bother the older warriors, and Honeykit replies that she and Molekit are practicing running.

Trivia

Interesting facts

Author statements

  • Kate imagines him to be black with a pale gray muzzle and paws.[9]

  • Molepaw was mistakenly listed as the dead kit of Smoky and Daisy on the Warriors Family Tree.[12]
    • This was later changed on the new official site's tree.[5]
