This page contains Stemleaf's personality and relationships. It contains conjecture due to being based off of general novel themes, and all statements must be sourced.

Personality

Stemleaf is a friendly, strong, and capable warrior, respected by his Clanmates.[1] He is not afraid to speak up against Bramblestar’s methods for dealing with codebreakers.[2]

Relationships

Bristlefrost

"You don't get it, do you? There's more at stake here than whether we're allowed to talk to each other. Stomething is very wrong. I always thought you were a good cat. Soon we're going to have to make choices. I just hope you'll be ready to make the right ones."
—Stemleaf warning Bristlefrost The Silent Thaw, page 118
As an apprentice, Bristlefrost is smitten with Stemleaf, and wants to become a warrior as quickly as possible so they could be mates.[3] However, Stemleaf rejects her in favor of Spotfur.[4] After this, Bristlefrost is sometimes irritated at their displays of affection,[5] but knows that her crush on him was immature.[5] Stemleaf’s respect for Bristlefrost is strained when she snitches on Spotfur crossing the border to Bramblestar's impostor, getting her punished. Unsure if it was personally motived, Stemleaf warns Bristlefrost to be careful about which side she's on. [6]

Spotfur

"I don't think so. Actually, I...I like another cat.""
—Stemleaf to Bristlefrost Lost Stars, page 141
Stemleaf is affectionate toward Spotfur.[7] In Lost Stars, when Bristlefrost confesses her feelings to him, he admits that he had always seen her as like another littermate, and wants to be Spotfur’s mate instead.[4] He is dismayed when Spotfur is punished for accidentally crossing the WindClan border by having no one talk to her for a quarter moon.[8] He talks to her anyway,[9] and both cats attend the secret meeting of cats who disapprove of Bramblestar’s methods for dealing with codebreakers.[2]
