"I died a medicine cat. But before that, I was a warrior. I never hesitated to fight for what I know to be right, however hard it seemed. I give you your eighth life and, with it, the courage to trust your instincts. When your heart speaks, listen."

Tallstar's Revenge

"Welcome to StarClan, Heatherstar. I have watched you serve your Clanmates with bravery and loyalty as their deputy, and now I am honored to give you a life as their leader."
—Thrushpelt greeting Heatherstar in StarClan during her ceremony Tallstar's Revenge, page 1
Thrushpelt is seen in StarClan, welcoming Heatherstar during her nine lives ceremony while facing her. He states that he had watched her serve her Clanmates with bravery and loyalty as their deputy and is honored to give her a life as their leader. Heatherstar dips her head and thanks him. Thrushpelt then goes on to explain that he died a medicine cat, but prior to that, he was a warrior. He also adds that he never hesitated to fight for what he knew to be right, however hard it seemed. Thrushpelt then presents Heatherstar her eighth life, with the courage to trust her instincts, and tells her to listen when her heart speaks. He then leans forward and touches his nose to Heatherstar's head, which makes the life pulse through her, and she groans through clenched jaws. Thrushpelt then steps back and glances over his shoulder, calling out to Daisytail.
