"I know you do care. And I know you won't let your Clanmates down. You must go on hunting and fighting and living for your Clan."
— Stormtail to Bluefur after Snowfur's death in Bluestar's Prophecy, page 357

Stormtail is a dark[8] blue-gray tom with blue eyes.[3]

Stormtail was a warrior of ThunderClan in the forest territories under the leaderships of Doestar, Pinestar, and Sunstar. He was the mate of Moonflower and the father of Bluestar and Snowfur, though he held a distant relationship with his kits. As Stormpaw, he was mentored by Rooktail and quickly gained interest in Moonflower, then Moonkit, much to the displeasure of her brother, Goosefeather. However, as a warrior Stormtail was noted to be a highly respected member of his Clan.

"Bluepaw stared at her father, amazed. Was he proud of her? Had he been keeping an eye on her training after all? She longed for him to say more, but he turned his head and began washing his flank."
—Bluepaw's reaction to her father's praise Bluestar's Prophecy, page chapter 12
In Bluestar's Prophecy, he becomes the father to Bluekit and Snowkit. When Goosefeather interprets an omen of a WindClan threat, Stormtail pushes for battle. However, Moonflower is killed in the resulting raid, and Stormtail is unaware due to his preoccupation with Dappletail. While distant with his kits, he occasionally praises Bluefur and comforts her after Snowfur is killed on the Thunderpath. He becomes mentor to Brindlepaw, and moons later, is said to have died when the Clan ran out of prey.


Goosefeather: "Wait, it's not my fault the badger attacked me. It was Stormtail—"
Moonpaw: "Really? You're going to blame Stormtail for this? Who do you think found the patrol and told them what was happening?"
—Moonpaw revealing that Stormtail helped Goosefeather Goosefeather's Curse, page chapter 7
In Goosefeather's Curse, Stormpaw trains under the mentorship of Rooktail. He is admired by Moonkit, while her brother Goosekit is visibly afraid of him. Particularly, Goosekit has a vision of the apprentice abandoning him to be killed by a badger. Moons later, Stormtail rushes past Goosefeather warning him of a badger, though the medicine cat interprets this as him leading the badger to kill him.
In Spottedleaf's Heart, Stormtail falls seriously ill with a thirsting sickness, but attempts to deny his condition until he is found collapsed on the ground by Spottedpaw. Featherwhisker is able to treat him enough for the warrior to continue his duties.

Stormtail: "Not allowed in the fighting, eh? Next time, perhaps."
Moonflower: "This is going to be a dangerous battle. We've never attacked a Clan's camp before. We'll be fighting the whole Clan in a place they know and we don't."
Stormtail: "But we'll have the element of surprise, and we'll be fighting at close quarters."
Moonflower: "That's what worries me."
Stormtail: "Up close, WindClan's nimbleness will count for nothing. ThunderClan strength will have the advantage."
Moonflower: "I suppose."
Stormtail: "Don't worry, this is a battle we'll win."

Bluefur: "I can’t lose Snowfur as well as Moonflower. Why did they both have to die?"
Stormtail: "Only StarClan knows that."
Bluefur: "Then StarClan is stupid and cruel!"
Stormtail: "Life must go on. You have other Clanmates."
Bluefur: "Not like them. They were kin!"
Stormtail: "Your Clan depends on you as much as Snowfur and Moonflower did. More so."
Bluefur: "I don't care!"
Stormtail: "I know you do care. And I know you won't let your Clanmates down. You must go on hunting and fighting and living for your Clan."
