Personality and traits

Gray Wing

Gray Wing was fond of Turtle Tail, and he enjoyed being around her bouncy and bubbly attitude. She didn’t notice his love and considered him a good friend, and Gray Wing was dismayed when she went to live in Twolegplace.[2] However, she comes back and she and Gray Wing spend more time together, and seem to grow close.[3] Turtle Tail is a soothing presence for Gray Wing, and she comforts him when he is worried. But before anything can develop, Turtle Tail is killed on the Thunderpath, and Gray Wing is devastated. Turtle Tail later visits Gray Wing from StarClan.[4]


Bumble was one of Turtle Tail’s closest friends, and she gives up life among the mountain cats to live with her in Twolegplace.[2] However, after Tom starts to bully both she-cats, Bumble leaves, but Turtle Tail stays, which makes Bumble feel betrayed. Bumble is killed on Clear Sky’s territory shortly afterward.[3]
