"I promise to be the strongest, wisest leader I can be. I will do my best to echo your loyalty to RiverClan and your courage to speak out on our behalf, and I will learn from your mistakes. I know that I don’t need to prove to the other Clans that RiverClan is the strongest or most powerful. I just want my Clanmates to be happy and at peace."

Mistystar is a blue-gray[1] she-cat[2] with thick,[3] dense,[4] sleek fur,[5] a pink nose,[6] and clear,[7] ice[8]-blue eyes.[3]


Mistykit was born to Bluefur and Oakheart in ThunderClan. Her litter-mates were Stonekit and Mosskit, But Bluefur had to give up her kits so she could become deputy. Oakheart took the kits to RiverClan, but on the way there, Mosskit died in the snow.

Oakheart asked Graypool to take care of the two kits and so she did, but also knew that Mistykit and Stonekit were half-bloods, but she kept it to herself until Tigerstar pretended to be Oakheart and then Graypool, who was very old, accidentally gave it out.


Mistyfoot and Stonefur became warriors of RiverClan. She got her apprentice named Featherpaw who was Silverstream's kit. She and Silverstream had been friends when Silverstream was still alive. Stonefur, Mistyfoot’s brother, got Stormpaw, Silvestream's son as his apprentice. Stonefur then became deputy when Leopardstar took leadership. Leopardstar was often visited by Tigerstar of ShadowClan. When Mistyfoot found out that Bluestar was her real mother, she was very angry.

Mistyfoot gave birth to four kits, Pikepaw, Primrosepaw, Perchkit and Reedwhisker. Around that time, Tigerstar formed TigerClan and by then he had found out about who Mistyfoot's real mother was. He had her, Stonefur and their apprentices locked away and guarded. Her brother, Stonefur, was killed by Blackfoot. Blackfoot wanted some revenge too.

Firestar, Graystripe and Ravenpaw came to save them. She, Stormpaw and Featherpaw went to live in ThunderClan. After BloodClan and TigerClan were defeated she went back to RiverClan with the apprentices. Leopardstar had Mistyfoot became deputy since Stonefur had died.


Mistyfoot's apprentice, Featherpaw, became Feathertail. She later got a new apprentice named Dapplepaw who later became Dapplenose. When twolegs were destroying the forest Mistyfoot was captured. When she was freed, she found her way back to RiverClan, where she learned that Hawkfrost has been named deputy in her place. However, Leopardstar quickly renamed her deputy.


She later became leader after Leopardstar died. She is seen by Dovepaw using her powers. Mistystar visits Firestar to tell him about Leopardstar's death, and as she leaves, she accepts Firestar's offer of herbs.

  • Vicky Holmes said that they forgot about Mistystar's kits in later books.[9]
  • Kate Cary said that she'd like to think that two of the four were Graymist and Rippletail. Reedwhisker was later confirmed to be one of her kits in the same chat.[9]
    • It is later revealed that Graymist and Rippletail were not Reedwhisker's littermates, and that the kits Fireheart saves from the river came from a litter consisting of Reedwhisker, Perchkit, Pikepaw, and Primrosepaw.[10]
  • In Mistystar's Omen, Mistystar mentions that she did not know Oakheart to be her father until after Bluestar's death.[10] However, in Forest of Secrets, long before Bluestar's death, Mistyfoot tells Fireheart that Oakheart is her father.[11]
  • Vicky has said that Mistystar has certainly lost some lives, but that they may have not been documented in the books.[12]
