|"Fox dung to all that! I don't want to be a SkyClan cat! I've always been ShadowClan, and I always will be."|
|— Slatefur after hearing of ShadowClan's annexation in River of Fire, page 256|
Slatefur is a sleek, gray tom.
He is born as Slatekit to Pinenose and Spikefur, along with his littermates Lionkit, Birchkit and Puddlekit, and gains Violetkit as a foster sibling. He becomes Slatepaw, with an unspecified mentor, and joins The Kin when Darktail takes over, granting himself the name of Slatefur.
He rejoins ShadowClan along with the rest of his Clanmates. Tigerstar grants Slatefur his first apprentice, Frondpaw.

- Coming Soon
In the A Vision of Shadows arc
- It is noted by Violetkit that Slatekit and his siblings have moved into their own nests in the nursery. Slatekit and the others argue that they are almost apprentices and much too old to share their mother's nest. With her chin over the edge of her and Pinenose's nest, Violetkit watches the cats of the nursery sleeping around her. Slatekit stirs slightly in his sleep, but he doesn't wake up, and Violetkit wonders if he and his siblings ever feel that they don't belong.
- Slatefur is mentioned by Rowanstar, alongside his other missing Clanmates. While Rowanstar is unsure of where they have gone, many are shocked that they have not returned to their ShadowClan kin.
- When Leafpool reveals that Tree, a loner, is able to raise the spirits of ShadowClan's fallen, ShadowClan learns more about Slatefur's residence. Puddleshine asks Lioneye, Mistcloud, and Dawnpelt if they know where Slatefur is. They reply that if Slatefur is not among the fallen cats present or in StarClan, then it is likely that he is still alive.
- Slatefur is one of the four ShadowClan warriors that are at the Moonpool when Violetshine, Alderheart, and others arrive to check on Tigerheart. Violetshine breathes out their names, exclaiming that everyone thought they were dead.
- As the night crawls on, Cloverfoot murmurs that it'll be good to go back to ShadowClan, which prompts Violetshine to explain miserably that ShadowClan doesn't exist anymore. After she informs them of everything that had happened since they ran away, making Slatefur loudly declare that he doesn't want to be a SkyClan cat, and he's always been ShadowClan and always will be. His loud tone catches the attention of Leafstar and Hawkwing, who look at him in annoyance. Slatefur witnesses Tigerheart become resurrected as Tigerstar, and listens to Tigerstar's speech. Although Slatefur is silent, he joins his Clanmates in cheering his new name. Afterwards, Leafstar tells him to take his Clan home. He calls to his cats to follow him, and ShadowClan follows him as he heads down the moorland.
- Slatefur does not formally appear in The Raging Storm, but is listed in the allegiances. He does however, gain his first apprentice, Frondpaw.
In The Broken Code arc
- Slatefur does not formally appear in Lost Stars, but is listed in the allegiances. However, Frondpaw has now become a warrior named Frondwhisker.
In the Novellas
- Tawnypelt spots him sharpening his claws against a rock in ShadowClan's camp, and recalls to when he and many other cats betrayed ShadowClan for Darktail. Later, Cloverfoot asks him if he recalls when they, along with Sparrowtail and Berryheart, slept away from each other during their stay in the twoleg den, noting that she misses it. Before Slatefur can respond, Tawnypelt spits an insult at Cloverfoot.
- When Tawnypelt tries to sneak away with Shadowkit, Tigerstar finds her and stops her. Slatefur comes out of the warriors den, his eyes wide in shock at the deputy. He watches the confrontation between Tigerstar and Tawnypelt before heading back to his nest afterwards.
- He was mistakenly said to have died of yellowcough.
- Despite not being in the patrol back to ShadowClan in Tigerheart's Shadow, he replaces Rippletail in the aforementioned patrol in River of Fire, while Rippletail appears as a kittypet named Buster.
