"ThunderClan's second leader was a legendary hunter, who learned the ways of the tawny owl to stalk prey by night in silence."
— Description of Owlstar in Secrets of the Clans, page 22

Owlstar is a dark gray[11] tom[9] with large, unblinking,[11] amber eyes.[2]

Owlstar was born as Owl Eyes to Turtle Tail and Tom along with Pebble Heart and Sparrow Fur, and was raised on the moor by his adopted father, Gray Wing. He eventually moved to the forest, where he joined Thunder in forming what would become ThunderClan. He became deputy after the death of Lightning Tail, and upon Thunderstar's death, the second leader of ThunderClan.

Dawn of the Clans

"Though [Gray Wing] had never had his own kits, Pebble Heart, Sparrow Fur, and Owl Eyes had seemed like his, and he still missed them now that they’d left the moor to live among the pines and the oaks. Yet he was proud that they’d followed their instincts and chosen their own homes."
—Gray Wing on his adopted children Path of Stars, page 2
Owl Eyes and his siblings are born to Turtle Tail after she rejoins Tall Shadow's group, previously being a kittypet with their father, Tom. The kits are watched over by their adopted father, Gray Wing, though Owl Eyes frequently gets into trouble, on one occasion sneaking out of camp to hunt. When Tom wishes to see his kits, he is refused by Turtle Tail, but finds the kits even so. Before they are rescued, Turtle Tail is killed on the Thunderpath, leaving Owl Eyes devastated. As the First Battle breaks out shortly after, Owl Eyes wishes to fight, but is barred due to his age.
Upon the news that Tom is in Clear Sky's group, Owl Eyes is shocked at the negative reaction, worrying that it must mean the other cats don't like him either. After Tom is killed by One Eye, he becomes despondent, feeling guilt when Gray Wing disappears after admitting he wasn't his real father. After the group is ordered by the spirit-cats to separate, Owl Eyes and Sparrow Fur join Clear Sky in the forest. However, Owl Eyes eventually decides to follow Thunder when the forest camp splits, and the group is named ThunderClan by Silver Stripe.
