"Silverstream was a feisty, headstrong young cat who could bend her father to her will with little effort. But her impulsive nature was tempered by gentleness inherited from her mother, and she was loved by all her Clanmates. Silverstream was a RiverClan warrior through and through, with freshwater running through her veins, and she never intended to fall in love with a ThunderClan warrior."

—Narrator describing Silverstream in The Ultimate Guide, page 123

Silverstream is a soft[1] and thick-furred,[2] light[3] silver-gray[4]-and-black[5] tabby she-cat[2] with bright blue eyes.[1]


Silverstream was born in RiverClan. Her mother was Willowbreeze, and her father was Crookedstar. She had two sisters, Willowkit and Minnowkit. Her mother died of greencough and her two sisters, Willowkit and Minnowkit also died shortly after.

Only Silverkit escapes the horrid sickness alive. Crookedstar stays away from her to not grow close to her, fearing she will die like her mother and littermates. Silverkit is frightened by Crookedstar's fight with Oakheart. Silverkit's foster mother was Sunfish.


Silverstream was a warrior of RiverClan. She is first seen saving Graystripe when he fell in the river, saying it was only because RiverClan didn't want dead cats polluting their streams. Graystripe looks back at her several times on his way home with Fireheart and Cinderpaw.

Silverstream starts secretly meeting Graystripe, despite the warnings given to her by Mistyfoot, her father, and Fireheart. During a battle between RiverClan and ShadowClan against WindClan, Silverstream accidentally attacks Fireheart.

Fireheart lets her go without clawing her. Silverstream later gets Mistyfoot and Graypool to tell Fireheart about the battle at Sunningrocks. Silverstream notices the river rising, and reports this to Crookedstar. When the camp starts to flood, she and Mistyfoot rescue kits.

When Fireheart and Graystripe come to camp with two of Mistyfoot's kits, she feels proud of Graystripe. Later, she tells Graystripe she's going to have his kits.


Crookedstar spots her meeting Graystripe, and he tells her it's against the code. She tells him then the code should be changed and leaves. A moon later, she starts kitting at Sunningrocks. It goes horribly wrong, and she starts bleeding while Fireheart fetches Cinderpaw.

Cinderpaw saves the two kits, but Silverstream tells Graystripe she loves him and to take good care of their kits, then dies right after. Silverstream died because when she gave birth she lost too much blood. Graystripe buries her near the river, saying she would have liked that.

StarClan Resident

On the border between StarClan and the Place of No Stars, she tells Crookedstar to take care of her kits before vanishing. Silverstream granted Firestar a life of loyalty. Firestar asks if she has a message for Graystripe. She sadly looks at him with more pain and love than any message could explain. She, along with other StarClan members, help them fight BloodClan.

In Firestar's Quest, she appears to him in a dream and gives him a fish. He tells her his concerns of SkyClan, and she reminds him of his life, for loyalty to what he thought was right, even if it was against the warrior code. When the chosen cats are journeying home, she tells Stormfur in a dream to go back to the tribe. When Feathertail dies, Silverstream tells him not to grieve her long and goes up to StarClan with her.

She visits the kidnapped Graystripe in a dream, and encourages him to leave and take Millie with him. She and Feathertail greet Leafpool as a new medicine cat. Jaypaw sees Silverstream when Millie has her kits, and Graystripe is happy she cares for Millie and the kits.

When Yellowfang and Jayfeather are heading toward the Dark Forest, she briefly asks Yellowfang where Feathertail is. When the cats who gave Firestar his nine lives enter after the battle, Graystripe calls to her and she tells him she will wait for him.
