Find a few quotes that really illustrate Dovepaw's personality. The first quote illustrates her personality, but the second one isn't very clear as to how it relates to her, since in the quote it's just her Spiderleg asking what the brown animals are. Needs a warrior portrait. Night Whispers needs to be shortened. A lot.

Gold eyes? Dovewing has been stated with blue eyes much more than she has gold. She is only mentioned with gold eyes twice, but has been described as blue eyed four times, in the alleginces of FE, NW and SOTM and on page 49 of FE. I believe that her eye colour should be changed to blue, not gold. Whoever agrees, speak up. IloveDovepaw 21:39, November 11, 2011 (UTC)IloveDovepaw
She was mentioned with gold eyes first so therefore we keep it like that. We've had this discussion too many times, and it all goes up to this. We stick with what was mentioned first, it doesn't matter how many times the other option has been mentioned. --Splook it's a long way down. 21:45, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, she was mentioned first with green eyes in Sunrise. But, honestly, the color of her eyes we're using was decided on by some senior users and isn't going to change unless Vicky tells us otherwise. Shelly For a limited time only 21:56, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
As I've said before, it's just an eye color and doesn't really matter. IloveDovepaw, I've told you this before, so there's no reason at all to bring this up again. It's been decided that the eye color on her article is gold, not blue. — Jayce ( ) 21:58, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with blue eyes, she is mentioned in the alligiances of all the books I've read. I think her eyes should be blue! Ouka-noir 23:23, November 25, 2011 (UTC)
I like blue eyes.. it does not really matter but i mostly hear blue? Maybe her eye color changes? Idk?Squirrelkit 22:58, December 5, 2011 (UTC) Squirrelkit
The erins confirmed in I think the 6th or th chat that Dovewing had gold eyes. Wavestripes 01:39, February 19, 2012 (UTC)
I believe that is in her trivia section. User:A Cat Named Cheshire/Sig
She is shown with green eyes in The Ultimente Guide. Emberstar11 leader of Echoclan 05:33, June 1, 2015 (UTC)
Shouldn't a trivia be that she has SkyClan blood. Because her great-great-grandfather, Patchpelt was littermates with Spottedleaf so in a distant way she has SkyClan blood as does Ivypool.
Who took off the part about Bumblestripe's name being "uncool" and stuff?
That is partly true about her. It seems she has some Skyclan blood, its possible to make it into a trivia22.214.171.124 23:02, May 15, 2013 (UTC)Silverwater
I'm not sure, but I watched a Youtube vid about warrior cat facts and it said that Ashfur was their real father but after his death Whitewing decided that its was best to name Birchfall as her their father. Applesky (talk) 02:46, March 20, 2016 (UTC)
Those weren't actually facts, they were headcanons, meaning that they could possibly be true, in the person's perspective, but have not been confirmed. For example, Ravenpaw and Barley being gay is a headcanon (though it's almost canon if the word of Vicki counts for anything). Dovewing66 (talk) 04:29, March 20, 2016 (UTC)Dovewing66
A new development in the blue/gold case
Alright, I know most of you are tired of this conversation, but a new bit of information has popped up that I believe to be relevant. Vicky has commented on her opinion of the color of Dovewing's eyes here. Her simple statement of "I thought they were blue", while not outright confirming the color, does give more strength to the argument as she is the creator of the series.
This isn't an argument about pixels, by the way. It's an argument about providing the facts as well as we can.
Anyway, Vicky's statement contradict's Kate's. By that note, we must throw both statements into question, and must rely on a source that should have trumped their confused statements in any case: the books.
On all but two occasions, Dovewing has been described with blue eyes. Once, right when she was born, they were green. Then they were, one time, pale gold. Ever since, they have been blue and nothing else that I can find.
I agree that the statement by vicky, while not open-and-shut in the wording, is enough to throw Kate's statement of Gold into doubt. I belive, given the contradiction of the authors on this one, that the text source is where we need to go for proof. Our accuracy is thrown into doubt by being inaccurate over something like a major character's eyecolor. Kate's statement is in doubt and directly contradicted by both another Erin (however weakly) and the content of the books. I supported "first appearance + kate" prior to this, but for the first time in the history if this point there's now "Book data + vicky". I'll side with the books over any Erin anyday. Den/CoSC 15:21, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
I swear I've seen them gold more than once. But don't take my word for it. They're stated as blue in the allegiances ever since always, but I've seen them gold in context quite a bit. So...I have no idea.
If the dispute between eye colours is a completely dead not-gonna-get-us-anywhere sorta thing, you should take out her eye colour. Because they're always either going to be blue or gold, and since no one at all really knows, not even the Erins for sure, I don't think it's a fact that you should put on here :/ But don't listen to me, whatever you want to decide to do. Moumantai! :3 22:52, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
I don't think so, honestly. We should have descriptions as complete as possible, and at this point if the authors can't agree on it, we just need to go with the most used description, that being unmistakably blue. Shelly For a limited time only 16:27, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
I agree. Dovewing's eyes are mostly said to be blue. I have only seen them as different 2 other times. Sunleaf+Pinewhisker 22:06, February 14, 2012 (UTC)
Gold in TFA allegiances?
It says Dovewing has blue eyes in the alligences of The Fourth Apprentice, not gold.IloveDovepaw 03:17, March 20, 2012 (UTC)IloveDovepaw
She has gold on the cover. User:WooWoo/Sig 03:26, March 20, 2012 (UTC)
You're both wrong. =_= Her eyes are green on the cover and not mentioned in the allgiances. She's mentioned with gold eyes around her introduction in the book. Shelly For a limited time only 03:31, March 20, 2012 (UTC)
Yah. Isn't Dovewing on the cover of The Fourth Apprentice? She has green eyes there not gold!-Crowfeather44 April 9 2012
In the history of Dovewing in The Last Hope it says she started crying when Tigerheart walked away. Though I went back to that page and she never criedCrowfeather44 21:02, April 9, 2012 (UTC)
Where does it say Bumblestripe was her mate? Sure it was mentioned a couple times in TFW but after that nothing really happened. Plus, have we all forgotten about Tigerheart? She went back to meeting him in TLH, so is Bumblestripe officialy Dovewing's "Mate"TheBoss2 19:47, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
Shouldn't that be added to her tree?Lionheart 1717 02:03, May 24, 2012 (UTC)
Um. I just realized there isn't a citation/reference that says Bumblestripe and Dovewing were mates. Can someone put it up? I would, but I don't know the link. Thanks! Blizzardfoot*May StarClan light you path!* 03:46, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
Shouldn't Tigerheart be considered a mate of Dovewing's, even if it's former? Both of them were warriors when they started meeting again in The Last Hope, even if it was brief. It's not like she was too young to have a mate. I believe he should be considered her former mate because of The Last Hope. What do you guys think? Romance Girl (talk)
Its true that they met, but that does not mean that they were really mates. You may think of them as a couple, but they just like each other126.96.36.199 23:05, May 15, 2013 (UTC)Silverwater
I think that they should be considered mates. I mean they snuck out at night to see each other and Dovewing herself basically confirms that they're mates with this quote to Ivypool in Fading Echoes, Chapter 10, "Dovepaw backed away. 'Don't say that! He likes me, not you! Have you been following him? Find your own mate! Leave him alone!'"Cinderleaf (talk) 06:29, January 1, 2015 (UTC)
- They weren't mates. Dovewing has only had one official mate, and that's Bumblestripe. She was an apprentice when she said that, for one, and two, she was snapping out during an argument or something with her sister. — Jayce ( 06:34, 1/1/2015 )
Dovewing's Eye Colour
In context, Kate is taking the word of another person rather than actually confirming it for herself. Not to mention that Victoria Holmes has also confirmed Dovewing's eye color as well as all the cited evidence in the books that contradicts something or another. If you dispute the eye color, I suggest you take it to the talk page of Project Characters to change it. But understand that we kept with the color of pale gold as it is the first mention of eye color I believe as well as frequently mentioned. Atelda insert vague subtext here 22:05, October 8, 2013 (UTC)
Pale gold was the first mentioned, but they've been blue at every point since, so blue is the most frequently mentioned. And Flameore, just because Kate said they were blue doesn't mean they are. After all, Vicki confirmed they were blue. Dovewing66 (talk) 08:05, April 18, 2014 (UTC)Dovewing66
She was first mentioned with green eyes, and in both official pictures her, on the cover of The Fourth Apprentice and in The Ultimate Guide, she has green eyes. The blue and gold eye colors are FALSE. (Iamdovewing123 (talk) 13:44, April 18, 2014 (UTC)) 8:44 a.m. April 18, 2014
I'm confused because you guys state she has blue eyes while the ultimate guide protrays her with green eyes. Are you sure your not mixing her up with Ivypool, since she has blue eyes?Flamestrike Of ThunderClan (talk) 23:24, November 3, 2014 (UTC)
In this case, we take author word over a book. Vicky said blue eyes, so that's what we go with. We can't change that based on the number of times it's mentioned... and even then, I'm pretty confident that blue eyes is mentioned the most frequently. — Jayce ( 11:20, 8/13/2016 )
What I Like/Hate About DoveWing
- She broke up with Tigerheart
- She became Bumblestripe's mate.
- Her powers are sort of OP
- She stopped seeing Tigerheart in The Last Hope because she knew that the upcoming battle was more important.
- She was defensive to Ivypool, thinking that she was going to steal away Tigerheart.
- She uses her powers to check on Tigerheart, although doing the same for her clan.
- She met up with Tigerheart
Okay, first, you said she was a mary Sue and then went on to point out that she broke the warrior code- but a Mary Sure is acharacter that doesn't do anything wrong. Get your meaning rights before you say that about a character.
Second, this talk page is here to discuss possible edits and things that need to be fixed, not for posting your own personal opinoin of the chacater. Could you please post your opinoins on your page or something? Dovewing66 (talk) 04:36, July 28, 2015 (UTC)Dovewing66 (I really need a new name my God XD)
So, I know it's been discussed numerous times before, but I think the issue of Dovewing's eye-colour needs to be re-addressed. This is because the last mention of her eye-colour on the talk page was over a year ago and many things have happened since then, including but not limited to what looks like a switch to green eyes in the recent books. As stated in the trivia, "[Dovewing's eyes] were originally mentioned as pale gold in The Fourth Apprentice but they have been called blue until Thunder and Shadow, where it switches to green ever since." I think this alone is concrete evidence that Dovewing's eye-colour has been decided to be green but the proof doesn't stop there; all three official illustrations of Dovewing depict her as having green eyes, including the new, re-done cover of The Fourth Apprentice. If somehow you are still sceptical, then I have one more piece of evidence that builds on my original point: not only was Dovewing described as having green eyes in Tigerheart's Shadow, but she is mentioned with them a shocking 25 times! In conclusion, it is clear as glass that, despite Dovewing having blue eyes in previous books, Dovewing's eye-colour have certainly been changed to green. On the contrary, I'm not going to change what it says in her description since that's not my decision to make but I hope some more experienced member of the Warriors Wiki community will decide to act on this. (Note: please don't get mad at me for writing this. I'm not trying to start a flame war but I was confused because Dovewing's Charart shows blue eyes yet her description says green. I'm just trying to get an official opinion on the matter. All and any help is greatly appreciated.)--iRainbowXxFeatherbreeze 19:26, November 26, 2017 (UTC)
I think dovewing has green eyes. Her eyes are green on the cover on the fourth apprentice and she is mentioned to have green eyes also in fading echos, night whispers, sign of the moon, the apprentices quest, shattered sky,darkest night, and many times in tigerheart’s shadow. The books when her eyes appeared blue were the forgotten warrior, the last hope, and thunder in shadow. Her eyes are mentioned gold only twice. Dovewing having blue eyes is mentioned quite a few times, but she is mostly mentioned with green eyes.--Xivyleafx (talk) 16:42, January 21, 2018 (UTC)
