"You know how I feel about you, Bluefur. I'd do my best to make you happy, I promise. And I'll love your kits as though they were my own."
— Thrushpelt to Bluefur in Bluestar's Prophecy, page 456

Thrushpelt is a sandy-gray tom with a white flash on his chest[4] and bright[7] green eyes.[4]

Thrushpelt was a warrior of ThunderClan under Pinestar's and Sunstar's leaderships in the forest territories. He was born as Thrushkit to Rainfur and Windflight just before the onset of ThunderClan's Great Hunger along with his siblings, Tawnyspots and Dappletail. As a warrior, Thrushpelt fell in love with his Clanmate, Bluefur, though she did not reciprocate his feelings. Even so, he took on the role of her kits' father when she gave birth to Mistykit, Stonekit, and Mosskit.
