"Sorry! I know I talk too much but I just want to be the best apprentice. I'm so glad you're my mentor. You're the strongest cat in RiverClan, except Rippleclaw, but he's old—not an elder or anything—but you're younger and you remember what it's like to be a 'paw."
— Sedgepaw to Crookedjaw in Crookedstar's Promise, page 343-344

Sedgecreek is a brown tabby[4] she-cat.[1]

Sedgecreek was a warrior of RiverClan under Hailstar’s and Crookedstar’s leaderships in the forest territories. She was born as Sedgekit to Ottersplash and Timberfur along with her brothers, Loudkit and Reedkit. She was apprenticed to Crookedjaw as Sedgepaw, and later earned her warrior name, Sedgecreek.

Crookedstar's Promise

Sedgekit is born to Timberfur and Ottersplash, along with her littermates, Loudkit and Reedkit. She receives her apprentice name, Sedgepaw, and her mentor, Crookedjaw. She seems very enthusiastic and talks a lot. Crookedjaw mentions that he wishes that he had been that eager with his former mentor, Cedarpelt. When they get ready to take the new apprentices out, Beetlenose boasts about how his apprentice, Reedpaw, would be the best warrior the Clans have ever seen, and he asks Crookedjaw if Sedgepaw would ever become a warrior. Crookedjaw says that he was simply going to train Sedgepaw the best he can.
Crookedjaw, Oakheart, and Beetlenose tour the territory with their apprentices. Hitting Crookedjaw with a flurry of questions, Sedgepaw is shown to be cheerful, eager, and full of energy. Later on, while she is training alone, Sedgepaw is able to land on a finch and kill it after other attempts have failed. Soon after, she is seen sitting in the apprentice's den, staring at the finch to see who will choose it as it is her first catch. After Crookedjaw is chosen by Hailstar to be the new deputy, she is excited to be the deputy's apprentice.
After moons of training, Sedgepaw becomes a warrior. Her warrior name is Sedgecreek, while her littermates, Loudpaw and Reedpaw, become Loudbelly and Reedtail. She is mentioned to be eager of proving that she is worthy of her full name when ThunderClan warriors cross the stepping stones.
Sedgecreek takes part of the patrol that goes to collect dry bedding. On the way, they encounter a Twoleg barn, where rats appear and battle the bedding patrol. Her leg gets injured by a rat. Crookedjaw sees this and fusses over her, but Brambleberry pushes him away and asks for cobwebs. Rippleclaw and Timberfur go to gather them, but Owlfur's news of Hailstar distracts them and when he dies, she grieves with the rest of the Clan.
