"The training they give us is good. It gives us a chance to make the Clan even stronger. I thought I'd learned all I could, but now I see there are ways to be even more powerful in battle for my Clan."

Birchfall is a light brown[1] tabby tom[2] with amber eyes[3] and glossy fur.[4]


Birchkit was born in ThunderClan. His mother was Ferncloud and his father was Dustpelt. He had two litter-mates, Hollykit and Larchkit. Out of his two other litter-mates, he was the most adventurous. Later, his sister, Larchkit, died of starvation when the Twolegs invaded the Forest Territories, and even later, his other sister, Hollykit died as well.

Birchkit was next seen by Ferncloud, frozen and cold. Firestar promised that Birchkit would not die, and he kept that promise. Cody helped Ferncloud take care of the kit when she was too weak to. When the Clans actually leave on the Great Journey, he often played with Tallpoppy's kits and even the Tribe's kits.


Birchpaw then had his ceremony to be an apprentice. Whitepaw was the only apprentice at that time, and she happily taught him how to be an apprentice. His mentor was Ashfur, and he and Whitepaw grew very close together.

Whitepaw even waited on Birchpaw to be ready so they could have their warrior ceremonies together. This is what probably led them to be mates.


Birchfall was made a warrior along with Whitewing. He was seen many times with Berrynose, and was known to act rashly. He often acted like Berrynose and attacked other Clans without permission. Whitewing was pronounced to have kits, and soon, had two daughters, Ivypool and Dovewing, fathered by Birchfall.
