"How dare a WindClan cat judge RiverClan after what Onestar did! Cats died when he closed WindClan's borders. He deprived them of herbs that could save them, all because he couldn't face the fact that he'd fathered Darktail."
— Sneezecloud about Onestar in Darkest Night, page 121

Sneezecloud is a gray-and-white tom.[4]

History

In the Power of Three arc

Dark River

Sneezekit and his brother, Mallowkit, are the two young kits of Graymist, a RiverClan queen. When Hollypaw and Lionpaw arrive on the Island for a Gathering, he had become separated from his mother, and wandered the island looking for her. Swallowtail, who had been keeping an eye on Mallowkit, notices Sneezekit looking for his mother, and snatches him up, taking him to safety.
During Hollypaw's stay with RiverClan on the Island, Sneezekit is seen with his mother and brother, who were heading down to the shore of the Island to get a drink from the water.

Sneezecloud is part of a border patrol consisting of himself, Duskfur, and Shimmerpelt.The RiverClan cats confront Jayfeather, Alderheart, Puddleshine, and Kestrelflight, who claim that they need to speak to Mistystar, Mothwing, and Willowshine. The medicine cats tell RiverClan's patrol that they need to deliver a prophecy sent from StarClan to RiverClan's leader and medicine cats. Shimmerpelt tells them that the border surrounding RiverClan is closed, but when Jayfeather asks if it is closed to StarClan too, Sneezecloud looks past the medicine cats, noting that he doesn't see any StarClan cats behind them.
The medicine cats continue to try to convince RiverClan warriors to let them see Mistystar, but without success. Jayfeather states that they must share StarClan's news, but Sneezecloud shows his teeth and answers that if it is important, they will let RiverClan know. Kestrelflight points out that StarClan may have only wanted to share with cats behaving like a real Clan, and Sneezecloud angrily asks how a WindClan cat dare judge RiverClan after cats suffered from Onestar closing his border, all because he couldn't face the fact that he fathered Darktail. Kestrelflight answers that it has nothing to do with Onestar, who is now dead.
