"Shadestar, your Clan must be punished. For the next moon, TigerClan shall not be seen in daylight. The light of the sun shall not touch your pelts. You may not speak to cats of other Clans. For one whole moon, you forfeit your Clan's honor. If you stop your raids, you may join the Clans at the next Gathering."

History

In the Field Guide Arc

Secrets of the Clans

Goldenstar is an ancient leader of LionClan.
In the story, "How LeopardClan Won the River," Goldenstar reports that a dangerous wild boar, Rage, that even his best warriors could not kill, is loose in the forest. When the LeopardClan warrior, Fleetfoot, boasts that she could catch it and kill it, he tells her she should do as she says, and agrees that LeopardClan should get the river for a moon if she succeeds.
When everyone has left, he says to Shadestar that they would not have to give up the river, as Fleetfoot does not know about Rage's dangerous mate, Fury, who was even fiercer than her mate, and rarely left her den. However, when both boars are killed, Goldenstar and Shadestar are ashamed of their treachery, and give LeopardClan permisson keep the river permanently.
In "How Snakes Came to the Forest", his warrior, Sunpelt, comes up to him with a tale of how he had been prideful and tried to kill the dangerous serpent Mouthclaw, and how she had tricked him, leading to her dividing into thousands of smaller adders, the size of a cat's tail. Goldenstar is stern, telling Sunpelt he could have been killed, and to never try to outwit a snake because they always outwit them. However, he is pleased with his warrior, because now his Clan won't need to worry about being consumed or killed by Mouthclaw, as the smaller snakes are definitely less dangerous. He later forgives Sunpelt.
In "How TigerClan Got Their Stripes," his only daughter, Petalkit, is taken by Thorntooth, a TigerClan cat, because he is bitter about TigerClan having nothing special on their pelts. Shadestar, knowing that Goldenstar's wrath would be immense, immediately returns Petalkit. Goldenstar and Swiftstar demand TigerClan be punished for Thorntooth's deeds, and as a result of their punishment, the tigers became striped.

Quotes

Goldenstar: "This was a dangerous thing you did. You should know better than to bargain with snakes. They are cunning and will outwit us every time."
Sunpelt: "I know."
Goldenstar: "However, you have done a great service to the forest. These smaller snakes may be dangerous, but none can be as dangerous as Mouthclaw. Now no warrior has to fear of being swallowed or bitten by her deadly fangs."
