Pine That Clings to Rock, more commonly known as Pine, is a light brown tom.[1]


In the Omen of the Stars Arc

Sign of the Moon

Pine is first seen in the prologue with his mother, Brook, and his sister, Lark. Brook asks him why he doesn't try to jump high like his sister, and that when he became a prey-hunter, he would need to be able to jump high to catch prey. He says he'd rather be a cave-guard than a prey-hunter like his mother, but his mother knows that Stoneteller wouldn't allow it. Pine's father, Stormfur, also a prey-hunter, returns from patrol, and comes to see his kits. Brook tells him that Pine doesn't want to be a prey-hunter, and Stormfur says that there's no reason why he has to, but Brook quiets him, telling him that Stoneteller was within earshot and could hear.
He and his sister Lark sneak up on Jayfeather, the medicine cat visiting from ThunderClan. Pine reassures Lark that Jayfeather is blind, and wouldn't be able to see them sneaking up on him. However, Jayfeather has good senses and hears them talking, so when they reach him, he scares them away, asking them if they were looking for something. They are seen running back to their mother, who comforts them saying they only surprised Jayfeather. Pine says that Jayfeather was a weird and scary blind cat.
When the patrols are going out, Pine and Lark don't want Brook to leave them, but she then tells them the elders will look after them. First, Talon tells them the story of Sharptooth. Talon then entices them with a game and then starts to explain the rules. Both Pine and Lark think they will win, until Bird quietly comes up and tells them that it takes skill and patience. It's a hunting game, where they have to catch a feather.

The Ultimate Guide

It is mentioned on Stormfur's and Brook Where Small Fish Swim's page that when Stormfur decided to join the Tribe, Brook became his mate and later gave birth to his kits—Lark That Sings At Dawn and Pine That Clings To Rock.

Lark: "We've been hunting. I caught three eagles!"
Pine: "Didn't. I killed one, or it would have flown away with you!"
—Brook and her two kits talking about their abilities Sign of the Moon, page 4

"I saw them stalking you. They could do with a few lessons in respect. It's hard for them. They're strong and active, but they're not allowed outside the cave at all until they become to-be's."
—Screech to Jayfeather about Pine and Lark Sign of the Moon, page 175
