"There aren't enough cats left in ShadowClan to patrol our borders. If we join SkyClan, at least we can train our apprentices so that they can become better warriors than we have."
— Stonewing about joining SkyClan in Darkest Night, page 268

Stonewing is a white tom[3] with a kinked tail,[9] and dark blue eyes.[10]

Stonewing is a warrior of ShadowClan under Rowanstar's, briefly Leafstar's, and Tigerstar's leaderships in the lake territories. He mentored Juniperclaw, which sparked doubts in other Clans given that Stonewing was a new warrior. He also became mates with Grassheart and she gave birth to his kits: Whorlkit, Snakekit, and Flowerkit. He was disappointed in Juniperpaw when he opted to join Darktail, and when the tyrant took over ShadowClan from Rowanstar, Stonewing joined him, becoming part of Darktail's group. However, he rejoined ShadowClan when Darktail was killed.

He struggled to support ShadowClan, and reluctantly agreed with the annexation of ShadowClan to SkyClan, but rejoined ShadowClan under Tigerstar, who revitalized the Clan. Stonewing gained another apprentice, Antfur, and later, Tigerstar's daughter Lightleap.

A Vision of Shadows

Stonewing: "How could you embarrass me like this? Haven't I been a good mentor to you? I've taught you everything you know."
Juniperpaw: "Cats are born knowing how to hunt and fight. Why do I need you telling me what I already know?"
Stonewing (to Rowanstar): "I warned you the apprentices were getting too big for their pelts."
—Stonewing and Juniperpaw arguing before Stonewing talks to Rowanstar Thunder and Shadow, page 144
Stonewing is a brand new warrior of ShadowClan, now mentoring Juniperpaw. The other Clans voice doubt over his and Wasptail's ability to mentor cats due to their age, but Rowanstar and ShadowClan defend them. He later becomes mates with Grassheart and fathers Whorlkit, Flowerkit, and Snakekit. When Needlepaw sparks a rebellion within ShadowClan, Stonewing is appalled that Juniperpaw agrees with her, and loses his apprentice when Juniperpaw leaves to join Darktail. During the yellowcough plague, he is constantly forced to go on patrols to compensate for the sick cats, and eventually opts to join Darktail with the majority of ShadowClan after losing faith in Rowanstar.
After the Kin is driven out, Rowanstar loses faith in his leadership and annexes ShadowClan into SkyClan, something Stonewing reluctantly supports for the betterment of their kits. However, he rejoins ShadowClan when Tigerheart is resurrected as Tigerstar and is given Antpaw as an apprentice.

Tigerheart: "Of course [Rowanstar] was firm. Why wouldn't he be?"
Stonewing: "He's not exactly decisive these days."
Tigerheart: "How dare you?"

Snowbird: "I guess having [SkyClan's] next rabbit sounds reasonable."
Stonewing: "I suppose it shows respect."

"He thought of the injured she-cat, and of Scorchfur, whose pelt was still slicked with ointment to soothe his injuries, and of Dovewing's torn ear and the kink in Stonewing's tail. Antfur had been buried three days ago, and the Clan was still in mourning. He had to share his vision about the codebreakers. It was the only way to protect his Clan from StarClan's anger."
—Shadowsight's thoughts on ShadowClan's injuries The Silent Thaw, pages 159-160
