|— Snowpaw about ShadowClan in Bramblestar's Storm, page 326|
Snowbush was a ThunderClan warrior under Bramblestar's leadership in the lake territories. He was born as Snowkit to Cloudtail and Brightheart alongside Dewkit and Amberkit. As an apprentice, Snowpaw was mentored by Ivypool, and later earned his warrior name, Snowbush. He sired Lilyheart's kits, Larkkit, Leafkit, and Honeykit. When a mudslide savaged ThunderClan's camp, Snowbush's leg broke and he died from the infection, ascending to StarClan.

- Snowkit is born to Cloudtail and Brightheart along with his siblings, Dewkit and Amberkit. The kits are their parents' second litter, with their older sister being Whitewing. He and his littermates are born shortly before the Great Battle, and Brightheart, Daisy and Ferncloud protect them in the nursery. After Sorreltail dies, Lilykit and Seedkit become his foster sisters.
- He is now a warrior named Snowbush, and he and Lilyheart now have a litter of kits, Larkkit, Leafkit and Honeykit. His mate fosters Twigkit, though Snowbush rarely interacts with her. When a mudslide occurs in ThunderClan's camp, a rock crushes Snowbush's leg. Despite Alderheart's best attempts, the injury becomes infected and Snowbush dies. Lilyheart verbally lashes out at Alderheart in her grief, and the Clan holds a vigil.
- In Bramblestar's Storm, during the Great Storm, he is now an apprentice named Snowpaw with Ivypool as his mentor. He and his siblings constantly wrestle and get into trouble. When ThunderClan evacuates to the tunnels, Snowpaw is terrified of getting lost, and survives a mild mudslide while playing with his brother. He participates in the battle against the kittypets and later the battle against the badgers. He also befriends Stormpaw, a former kittypet.
