History

In the Super Edition Arc

Bramblestar's Storm

At the Gathering, Blackstar mentions that Applefur was one of the ShadowClan cats slain in the battle against the Dark Forest
When the cats who had died in the Great Battle appear as StarClan cats in front of Bramblestar at a Gathering, Applefur is one of the cats noted to be among them.

In the New Prophecy Arc

Dawn

Applekit is one of Tallpoppy's three young kits, the other two being Marshkit and Toadkit.
She flees from the ShadowClan camp, which is being destroyed by Twolegs, with her mother and siblings. Later, during the Great Journey, Applekit and her brothers make friends with Birchkit, a ThunderClan kit. Her mother, Tallpoppy, also seems to be getting along well with Ferncloud, Birchkit's mother.

Starlight

When the Clans find new territory, Tallpoppy helps to guide her kits down the steep slope to come up beside the lake. Cloudtail and Brightheart dart forward and each grab a kit in their jaws.
Later, Applekit and her brothers are seen play-fighting with Birchkit. As the day wears on, Ferncloud tells her son to sleep, for they are going to visit the hollow tomorrow. Birchkit asks his mother if Applekit and her brothers can come along, but Tallpoppy explains that they belong to a different Clan. Birchkit whines that it's unfair, and all four kits cluster together, claiming that they will never split up. Ferncloud tells Birchkit not to be silly, and that he will see them at Gatherings when he is an apprentice. When the kits are forced to split up, Applekit darts forward and touches noses with the young ThunderClan kit while their mothers look sadly at one another.

In the Power of Three Arc

Outcast

When reminded of the mountains, Birchfall proclaims that he wants to go back, since The Great Journey had been so much fun. He reminds his Clanmates that he had three good friends: Applekit, Marshkit, and Toadkit. But Berrynose reminds him that he can no longer be friends with the ShadowClan cats, and Birchfall remains silent. Later, when the journeying cats are in the mountains, Brambleclaw skirts a huge clump of bracken, and comments that Applekit had fallen here, and had been picked up by Ferncloud.

In the Omen of the Stars Arc

The Fourth Apprentice

Applefur does not formally appear in The Fourth Apprentice but is listed in the allegiances.

Fading Echoes

Applefur does not formally appear in Fading Echoes but is listed in the allegiances.

Night Whispers

Applefur is in the ShadowClan camp when some of the warriors are discussing ways to improve their battle tactics against ThunderClan. She suggests that they look up so they can move out of the way before the ThunderClan warriors can jump down on them. Later, she is seen on a border patrol with Smokefoot when they find Tigerheart, Ivypaw, and Dovepaw at the border. Applefur and Smokefoot challenge Ivypaw as to why she was out "hunting" at that strange time. The three ShadowClan warriors then take Ivypaw back to their camp.

Sign of the Moon

She is seen training in the Place of No Stars with her Clanmates, Tigerheart and Ratscar.

The Forgotten Warrior

Applefur is seen as a kit on the Great Journey when Jayfeather leads Cinderheart into Cinderpelt's memories. Applekit bounces up to Cinderpelt and complains that she has burrs in her fur. Cinderpelt tells her that she'll help her untangle them when they stop, and until then, to watch where she's putting her paws. Applekit thanks her and charges off toward her littermates.

The Last Hope

Applefur is first seen in the Dark Forest when she tells Hawkfrost that Blossomfall and Birchfall want to fight Dark Forest warriors. She says that warriors don't kill when Mapleshade says that they need to work on their killing blow. She says she thought the Dark Forest had sought her out. When Ivypool says there might be more traitors like Sol, she says the next time a rogue tries to drive the Clans apart, she'll stand beside ThunderClan, not against them. Ivypool notices her melting away with Hollowflight and Redwillow.
Applefur is later seen training in the Dark Forest with Ivypool when Beetlewhisker tries to escape. She tells him not to leave because he has friends there. Brokenstar says he will kill her first if they try to go against the Place of No Stars. She stays with the fear of being killed, but when they're told to attack WindClan, Ivypool reminds her that a warrior will die to protect his or her Clan. Applefur is ashamed and says her life would be a small price to pay considering what she's done, but Ivypool says that there is no time for that and they must fight at the moment. Applefur then dashes off to fight.

In the Field Guide Arc

Secrets of the Clans

Quotes

Ferncloud: "It's time you got some sleep, little one. We have a long journey ahead of us tomorrow."
Birchkit: "Can Toadkit and Applekit and Marshkit come too?"
Tallpoppy: "No, we belong to ShadowClan. We'll have our own territory now."
Birchkit: "But that's not fair! If they can't come, I don't want to go."
—Birchkit saying goodbye to Applekit, Marshkit, and Toadkit Starlight, page 109


Longtail: "I'd love to go back to the mountains. I know I couldn't see where the Tribe lived, but I could feel the wide, open spaces and the wind in my fur, and all the scents the wind carried from far away."
Birchfall: "I'd like to go back, too! The Great Journey was fun! I had three good friends in ShadowClan: Toadkit, Applekit, and Marshkit. I wonder how they are now."
Berrynose: "Who cares? ShadowClan cats can't be your friends anymore. Have you forgotten how you nearly got your fur clawed off on the border?"
—Birchfall remembering his friends Outcast, pages 111-112
