"All your training isn’t a waste if you can use it for the good of your Clan. And maybe one day you’ll find the right mate. You’re a young cat; there’s no rush. Meanwhile, your Clan needs you."
— Rosepetal to Bristlefrost in Lost Stars, page 170-171

Rosepetal is a lithe,[9] dark cream she-cat[1] with amber eyes.[10]

Rosepetal is a ThunderClan warrior that has served under Firestar and Bramblestar's leaderships in the lake territories. She is born as Rosekit to Daisy and Spiderleg, with her brother Toadkit. While she and Toadkit enjoy themselves as kits, Spiderleg is awkward and does not know how to act around them, leaving them without much of a father figure. She is later given Squirrelflight as her mentor, and becomes Rosepetal. She is later given her first apprentice of Molewhisker, and participates in the Great Battle. She is soon granted her second apprentice of Fernsong, and later, Larksong. After surviving a sickness, Rosepetal is given her fourth apprentice, Stemleaf, and then later on, Bristlefrost, having grown wiser with each mentorship.

Power of Three

"I want to see the kits!"
—Rosekit as Millie is kitting Eclipse, page 155
Rosekit, along with her brother Toadkit, are born to Daisy and Spiderleg. Spiderleg is generally awkward around his kits and does not interact with them as much as Daisy would like him to. Rosekit befriends Bumblekit, Blossomkit and Briarkit when they are born. She is one of the many cats who catches greencough and Honeyfern promises Daisy she'll look after Rosekit.

Omen of the Stars

"She's a skilled and swift fighter, and I know she'll pass her training on to you."
—Firestar to Molepaw about Rosepetal The Forgotten Warrior, page 50
Having completed her warrior training under Squirrelflight, Rosepetal is introduced as one of ThunderClan's youngest warriors. When a tree falls on ThunderClan's camp, Firestar orders her to crawl through the tree branches to retrieve Jayfeather's herbs since she is slim like her father. She participates in the battle against ShadowClan and successfully overcomes Snowbird. Dovewing believes Rosepetal likes Foxleap since she was always backing him up, though nothing becomes of this crush. Later on, she is given her first apprentice of Molepaw, her half-nephew, and defends him from a fox. When Dovewing snaps at Bumblestripe, Rosepetal encourages her to try being nicer to him. She participates in the Great Battle, and is sent to help RiverClan with Foxleap and Toadstep.

A Vision of Shadows

"Pay no attention to [Jayfeather]. We’re all really pleased for you, Twigpaw."
—Rosepetal to Twigbranch after hearing she will become a warrior River of Fire, page 233
Rosepetal is revealed to have mentored Fernsong, and her father, Spiderleg, has died due to greencough. She helps fight against Darktail's band of rogues when they attack WindClan. She becomes the mentor to Larksong, and questions if Twigkit was really part of the prophecy. After Larksong becomes a warrior, Rosepetal mentors her fourth apprentice, Stempaw. She falls sick to an unnamed sickness that swept through the Clans, but survives and is pleased when Twigpaw announces she will become a warrior.

The Broken Code

"We help cats in trouble, no matter what their Clan,"
—Rosepetal to Eaglewing Lost Stars, page 31
Now mentoring Bristlepaw, Rosepetal is shown to be a calm, collected, and wise mentor. When Bristlefrost becomes depressed after Stemleaf rejects her, the former confides in Rosepetal. Rosepetal explains to her former apprentice that she experienced what she feeling once, but that she was young and should focus on being a warrior, as there's plenty of time in her life.

—Rosepetal Bramblestar's Storm, page 309
In Bramblestar's Storm, Rosepetal's half-sister, Hazeltail, and brother, Toadstep, have died due to greencough. During the flooding, Squirrelflight comforts her as they climb up the cliffs surrounding the camp. She objects to aiding ShadowClan, and participates in the battle against the badgers. Rosepetal aids in restoring the camp, and it is also implied she has feelings for Bumblestripe in conversation with Blossomfall. In the manga, Bramblestar gives her Fernpaw as an apprentice.
