Shattered Sky

Violetpaw encounters him during the fight between the Kin and RiverClan. She bursts through the undergrowth and comes face to face with him, aiming a blow at his ears. He ducks, causing her claws to miss him, then rises on his paws in an attempt to get her ears with both his forepaws. Violetpaw hurtles forward at his exposed belly, raking her claws across it and causing him to back off with his jaws gaping in a gasp of pain.

Darkest Night

As Twigpaw is with her father, Hawkwing, and her sister, Violetpaw, she hears an angry yowl split the air. Emerging from the medicine den, Twigpaw sees Owlnose facing Cloudtail, staring angrily at him. Owlnose demands to know what Mosspelt can eat, despite the fresh-kill pile still having plenty of mice, voles, and the rabbit Cherryfall had caught. Cloudtail responds that there is still enough for her to eat and he doesn't understand why the RiverClan tom is making such a fuss. Still glaring at the white tom, the warrior asks if he had forgotten the warrior code, and that the weakest cats get to eat first. He glares around at the other cats eating their prey, his glare seeming to silence the other Clans as he demands to know why their elders get to eat before RiverClan's. Graystripe pricks his ears and inquires if some cat has gone hungry, to which Owlnose states that Mosspelt has.
Graystripe explains that Mosspelt had been asleep and even a RiverClan cat cannot eat while doing so, meowing that there isn't anything worse than being woken from a nap. Owlnose retorts that going hungry is worse, so Millie sits up and says that the RiverClan elder can share with them, beckoning the tortoiseshell cat with her tail towards the thrush. As she does so, her pelt prickling self-consciously, the RiverClan warrior's fur bristles as he hisses if all they get is ThunderClan's leftovers now. Molewhisker retorts that if Owlnose spent more time hunting and less time complaining, there'd be enough food for everyone. Lakeheart and Brackenpelt end up joining their Clanmate in glaring at Molewhisker.
His leader, Mistystar, returns with a patrol before she notices the malcontent in the camp and wants to know what is happening. Bramblestar says it is merely a disagreement and nothing to worry about, so Mistystar looks at the quarreling RiverClan cats, and meows that she hopes they are being respectful since ThunderClan has been kind to them.

River of Fire

Jayclaw asks Willowshine for some herbs, due to many scratches lacing his pelt. She asks what happened, causing him to duck his head in embarassment. The gray tom replies that it was Owlnose, and Willowshine disbelievingly asks if it really was him. Still not looking at her, Jayclaw explains that they had a sort of discussion over his nest in the warriors' den, because his brother had scattered moss and bracken all over the place when he stood on it. Willowshine rolls her eyes and asks if they're kits in response, so Jayclaw apologizes.
While she's retreiving the herbs, she wonders what could've made Jayclaw and Owlnose fight each other over something so trivial, since they're both reasonable toms. After treating his wounds, the gray tabby then tells Mothwing about the conflict between the two brothers, and that she treated his wounds with marigold. Mothwing comments that they already have enough trouble while Willowshine supposes she had better talk to Owlnose too.
Later, Willowshine returns to her den, seeing the sick cats moaning in pain. She says that she was going to go check on Owlnose, but will go look for watermint instead. Mothwing nods, saying she'll take care of the tom instead.

Owlnose: "What is Mosspelt supposed to eat?"
Cloudtail: "There's more than enough left for Mosspelt. I don't know why you're making a fuss."
Owlnose: "Have you forgotten the warrior code? The weakest cats eat first. Why do your elders eat while ours goes hungry?"
Graystripe: "Has some cat gone hungry?"
Owlnose: "Mosspelt."
Graystripe: "She was asleep. Even RiverClan cats can't eat in their sleep, and I didn't want to wake her. There's nothing worse than being woken from a nap."
Owlnose: "Going hungry is worse."
Millie: "Mosspelt can share with us."
Owlnose: "So all we get is ThunderClan leftovers now?"
Molewhisker: "Perhaps if you spend more time hunting and less time complaining, there'd be enough for everyone."
