Spottedleaf was once a young, pretty ThunderClan tortoiseshell she-cat. She was a medicine cat, but despite this, she loved Firestar, who loved her before Sandstorm. Unfortunately, she was murdered by Clawface, a ShadowClan warrior, who was killed by Graystripe in Fire and Ice. The young cat continues to appear in StarClan-based prefaces and in Firestar's dreams. She is on the cover of Into the Wild, facing Bluestar in the long grass.
