Swallowtail is a dark gray she-cat.[3]

History

In the Super Edition Arc

Bramblestar's Storm

When the four Clans gather for their usual Gathering, Blackstar mentions their fallen Clanmates in a tribute. Swallowtail is among the fallen, alongside many of her WindClan allies.

In the Power of Three Arc

The Sight

Swallowkit, along with her two siblings, Thistlekit and Sedgekit, are born into WindClan. Their mother is Gorsetail.

Dark River

Swallowkit, along with her siblings, Thistlekit and Sedgekit, wander into the secret tunnels under WindClan and ThunderClan, while their mother is absent from the nursery. They had followed Heatherpaw to one of her secret meetings with Lionpaw, and that is where the apprentices suspected they headed to. Lionpaw, Hollypaw, Jaypaw, Heatherpaw, and Breezepaw, find that they got trapped behind a boulder while they were exploring when they came to rescue them. Breezepaw is the one who carries her when they make their escape through the underground river.
The kits' disappearance almost causes a WindClan to fight against RiverClan and ThunderClan, until the five apprentices bring them back to WindClan, and the three kits then promised not to tell anybody about the tunnels.

Outcast

Swallowkit does not formally appear in Outcast but is listed in the allegiances.

Eclipse

Swallowkit does not formally appear in Eclipse but is listed in the allegiances.

Long Shadows

She becomes an apprentice and her mentor is Willowclaw. She is the only kit out of her litter to be listed as an apprentice in the allegiances.

Sunrise

Swallowpaw does not formally appear in Sunrise but is listed in the allegiances. Her siblings, Thistlepaw and Sedgepaw, are now apprentices, too.

In the Omen of the Stars Arc

The Fourth Apprentice

Swallowtail does not formally appear in The Fourth Apprentice but is listed in the allegiances. Swallowpaw has become a warrior known as Swallowtail.

Fading Echoes

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

Night Whispers

She asks where Whitetail is and another cat tells Swallowtail that she was using Onestar's den for the night.

Sign of the Moon

When Dovewing accidentally uses her special senses, she ends up seeing WindClan's camp, where Antpelt is dying. Swallowtail is hysterical upon Antpelt's death and is seen screeching and yowling at Kestrelflight, wanting him to help Antpelt in any way. Kestrelflight tries to save Antpelt, but states that he has gone to hunt with his ancestors now and Swallowtail lets out a last, devastated cry. Dovewing then mentions that she remembered seeing her at the Gathering with Antpelt, and assumes that they had been mates.

The Forgotten Warrior

Swallowtail does not formally appear in The Forgotten Warrior but is listed in the allegiances.

The Last Hope

Swallowtail does not formally appear in The Last Hope but is listed in the allegiances.

In the Field Guide Arc

The Ultimate Guide

Although not mentioned by name, Swallowtail and her sisters appear on Heathertail’s page. When three WindClan kits went missing, Onestar assumed that ThunderClan has stolen them. Heatherpaw and Lionpaw guessed that the kits went into the underground tunnels, and went looking for them with Jaypaw and Hollypaw. Torrential rain flooded the tunnels, washing all the cats out into the lake, all narrowly escaping with their lives.

Hollyleaf's Story

Swallowpaw does not formally appear in Hollyleaf's Story but is listed in the allegiances.
