Bluestar is a blue-gray she-cat, sometimes described as dark gray. She has blue eyes and was once the leader of ThunderClan. Her kits include Mistystar and among the dead, Mosskit and Stonefur. She mentored Firepaw when he came into the Clan, and when he was her deputy she died protecting him from the dog pack. When Firestar got his nine lives, she gave him nobility, certainty, and faith. She is featured on Into the Wild's cover, facing Spottedleaf, and a younger version of her was featured on the cover of Bluestar's Prophecy, which was a Super Edition about her rise to power released in summer 2009.
