"You did what you could. They have our land now, which is what you wanted. I just hope it brings the peace they're looking for."
— Tempest doubting the Clans will have peace in Squirrelflight's Hope, page 408

Tempest is a long-furred,[6] well-muscled and broad-shouldered,[7] tabby she-cat with wide paws.[3][7]

Tempest is a Sister under the leadership of Moonlight, and mother to Stone and Grass. Tempest developed respect for Squirrelflight and Leafstar when they were held prisoner in the Sister’s camp during the group's stay in the lake territories for a couple days. During the Clan cats’ stay, Tempest’s sons came of age and were sent away by the Sisters to wander the land. When Sunrise was badly injured by Stonewing in a border skirmish with ShadowClan, Tempest, Snow, and Hawk brought Sunrise to ThunderClan to ask Squirrelflight if their medicine cat could treat her. Unfortunately, Bramblestar refused to treat Sunrise, and Tempest, Snow, and Hawk were not allowed to talk or go to their campmate while in ThunderClan’s camp. Sunrise, Tempest, Snow and Hawk were sent back to the Sisters with barely more than a couple herbs from Leafpool. Later, Tempest fought the Clans in a battle that killed Moonlight. SkyClan agreed to shelter Moonlight’s young and newly orphaned kits, and Snow and Tempest stayed with Squirrel, Leaf, and Moon in SkyClan to help look after them. After the kits were old enough to travel, Tempest left the lake with the rest of the Sisters.

Squirrelflight's Hope

Tempest is a member of a group of cats called the Sisters. This primarily all-female group is lead by Moonlight, a large gray she-cat. Squirrelflight and Leafstar, two Clan cats, are staying with them, and Moonlight introduces them to Tempest, who brings them prey and treats them like campmates. Tempest brings Leafstar and Squirrelflight two mice to eat, and settles herself down between Stone and Grass, her two kits. Moonlight remarks that Stone reminds her of Tempest's old mate, and Stone's father, to which Tempest replies that Stone is just young.
Tempest is the cat who shows Leafstar and Squirrelflight to their nests for the remainder of their time with the Sisters. Upon hearing that Snow is hostile towards Leafstar, Tempest apologizes on her behalf, saying that Snow is distrustful of new cats and that the white she-cat is only worried about her campmates. Tempest assigns Snow to guard Leafstar and Squirrelflight, but offers to assist the two she-cats should they need anything further.
Later, Tempest is seen helping her children, Stone and Grass, to dig a large hole in the ground. Squirrelflight assumes that she and the others are building another den for the Sisters, so she offers to help. Moonlight accepts the help, and sends Snow and Creek to fetch more vines to reinforce the den. Squirrelflight notices sadness in Tempest's gaze as she watches Stone and Grass disappear around the back of the den, and Squirrelflight wonders how the she-cat raised the two kits on her own. Moonlight is shocked, saying that Tempest didn't raise the kits by herself and that she had the sisters to help. Squirrelflight is shocked and confused, but Moonlight goes on to explain that the Sisters prefer not to have toms around, and that Tempest could have stayed with her mate if she wanted to, but chose not to. Moonlight says that Grass and Stone are old enough to leave them, and Squirrelflight wonders if Tempest will miss them. Moonlight says she will at first, but there will soon be new kits to take care of, referencing her own unborn kits.

Tree's Roots

After coming back from trying to talk to the land, Earth sees Tempest and Furze just back from a hunting patrol, and carrying fat voles as they pad over to the prey-hole. Later that night, She says farewell with the rest of The Sisters at Snail and Chestnut's ceremony.
When a storm rolls in after saying goodbye to the toms, Earth searches desperately for Stream, stumbling into a bush that he thinks may be the same one Tempest and Furze had been sleeping in. Two days later, every cat has scrapes and bruises, with Tempest having a sprained leg after pulling Ice from mud.
Moons later, in the middle of a fight against rogues, Earth tries to remember battle moves that Tempest and Snow had taught him.
