"You're obsessed with Clan loyalty. If you could see beyond your nose, you'd realize...there's a lot more to life than what we've got in one little Clan. Graystripe is a great and worthy warrior. If the warrior code can't deal with this...then maybe the warrior code needs to change. I know you're worried because you love me. And I love you too. I'll always be your daughter. But you have to let me choose my own future."
— Silverstream to Crookedstar in Crookedstar's Promise, page 495

Silverstream is a silver[4]-and-black[6] tabby she-cat[4] with blue eyes.[7]

Silverstream was a RiverClan queen under Crookedstar's leadership in the forest territories. Silverkit was born to Crookedstar and Willowbreeze alongside her sisters, Minnowkit and Willowkit, though she was the only kit to survive after her mother and sisters died due to greencough. Sunfish took her in as if she were her own, and she gained two foster siblings, Vixenkit and Grasskit. After becoming a warrior, Silverstream fell in love with a ThunderClan warrior, Graystripe, after she saved him from drowning in an icy river. The two often met in secret, much to Mistyfoot and Fireheart's displeasure; however, Silverstream died of blood loss during the birth of their kits, Stormfur and Feathertail, which devastated Graystripe. She ascended to StarClan and gave Firestar one of his nine lives. She soon reunited with Feathertail after her daughter risked her life to save the Tribe. Silverstream was proud when Graystripe found a new mate, Millie, and reunited with him during the battle against the Dark Forest.

The Prophecies Begin

"I can't stop seeing him. I love him."
—Silverstream to Fireheart about Graystripe Fire and Ice, page 163
Silverstream rescues Graystripe when he accidentally falls into the river, and the two begin meeting in secret, having fallen in love. During a battle, Graystripe's friend Fireheart refuses to attack Silverstream, causing Tigerclaw to suspect he is a traitor. Despite Mistyfoot and Fireheart pressuring them to stop meeting, they are soon expecting kits, and Silverstream is confident that the kits will be accepted as her father is Clan leader. However, the kits come early, and Silverstream does not survive. RiverClan demands ThunderClan give them kits, and Graystripe prevents a battle by allowing this, but he joins RiverClan to raise them. Moons later, Silverstream appears in StarClan, giving Firestar one of his nine lives, the gift of loyalty and to know what is right.

The New Prophecy

"Don't you know? I am your mother, Silverstream. And as for what you must do — Stormfur, remember that a question can have many answers..."

Silverstream visits Stormfur in his dreams, encouraging him to return to the Tribe and to fulfill their prophecy. She mourns for her daughter's death and guides her to StarClan. Leafpaw spots her and Feathertail watching Crowfeather's warrior ceremony, and later at the Moonpool.

"Silverstream was a feisty, headstrong young cat who could bend her father to her will with little effort. But her impulsive nature was tempered by gentleness inherited from her mother, and she was loved by all her Clanmates. Silverstream was a RiverClan warrior through and through, with freshwater running through her veins, and she never intended to fall in love with a ThunderClan warrior."
—Narrator describing Silverstream The Ultimate Guide, page 123


"It is hard to know if Silverstream would have been happy to live in ThunderClan, closed in beneath trees and out of sight and sound of her beloved river. But if love could give her courage to break the warrior code, it might have given her a chance of happiness with Graystripe."
—Narrator The Ultimate Guide, page 123
