"These are your children. Though they were too small to make the journey with SkyClan, and grew up in ThunderClan instead, Spottedpelt and Gorseclaw have chosen to walk these skies with me in honor of their SkyClan ancestors."

Gorseclaw is a broad-shouldered,[3] dark tabby tom with spiky fur[2] and amber eyes.[3]

History

In the Super Edition Arc

Firestar's Quest

When SkyClan is banished from their territory, Birdflight is worried that he and her other kit wouldn't survive their exile. When Kestrelwing, the ThunderClan medicine cat, invites Birdflight and her kits to join ThunderClan, she agrees.
Gorseclaw, now a StarClan warrior, later appears with SkyClan's warrior ancestors during Leafdapple's leader ceremony with Spottedpelt and Birdflight, finally reunited with their father, Cloudstar. Firestar notes that he looked a lot like Tigerstar.

SkyClan's Destiny

Gorseclaw is briefly mentioned when Leafstar sees the ancestors of SkyClan at a Gathering.
Gorseclaw is seen with his family, Cloudstar, Birdflight, and Spottedpelt. Birdflight touches noses with him and his sister.

In the Field Guide Arc

Battles of the Clans

Fawnstep has a vision of SkyClan leaving the forest, and she mentions to Cloudstar that she saw him giving his kits to ThunderClan.

The Ultimate Guide

Although not mentioned by name, it is mentioned on Cloudstar’s and Skywatcher’s page that when SkyClan had to leave the forest to find a new home, Birdflight had to stay behind with their newborn kits’, Spottedkit and Gorsekit.

In the Novellas

Cloudstar's Journey

He is first seen when he and his sister are born to Birdflight and Cloudstar.
When SkyClan are driven out, he and his sister are deemed too young to make the journey to find a new territory. With much protesting, his father Cloudstar eventually agrees to let them stay behind, and he, his sister, and his mother are invited to join ThunderClan by their current medicine cat, Kestrelwing.

Quotes

"Gorseclaw was a broad-shouldered tabby tom with glowing amber eyes; Firestar's belly churned at the likeness to his old enemy, Tigerstar. Birdflight had said the two cats had grown up in Firestar's own Clan. Did that mean that SkyClan's blood ran in ThunderClan? Were Spottedleaf and Tigerstar both descended from Cloudstar?"
—Firestar's thoughts on Gorseclaw Firestar's Quest, pages 496-497
