"Tawnyspots, ThunderClan thanks you for your loyalty and your courage. You have served your Clan well, and we hope that your days in the elders' den are peaceful. Your stories and wisdom will still have a place in the Clan, and we will still continue to learn from you."

History

In the Super Edition Arc

Tallstar's Revenge

Tawnyspots does not formally appear in Tallstar's Revenge but is listed in the allegiances.

Yellowfang's Secret

Tawnyspots does not formally appear in Yellowfang's Secret but is listed in the allegiances.

Crookedstar's Promise

Tawnyspots does not formally appear in this book. However, he is mentioned by Crookedstar, when the leader says that he had heard rumors of Tawnyspots dying.

Bluestar's Prophecy


When Bluekit and Snowkit venture out of the nursery with their mother Moonflower, she points out Tawnyspots in a group of warriors. Bluekit decides he'd be harder to make out in a battle because of his pale gray tabby fur, but she could remember the tufts of fur that stuck up on his ears.
He is seen at Leopardpaw and Patchpaw's apprentice ceremony, sitting next to Sparrowpelt.
Tawnyspots, while sharing prey with the elders, comes up with the idea to weave thick, waxy leaves found near the ShadowClan border through the elders' den so that it won't flood and the elders won't complain. Rosepaw, Smallear, Sweetpaw, Sparrowpelt, Snowpaw, Adderfang, and Thistlepaw come with him to collect the leaves.
Later, after the battle with RiverClan over Sunningrocks, Tawnyspots boasts that he had Ottersplash in a grip so tight that she had to beg him to let her go.
Tawnyspots is made deputy by Sunstar after Pinestar leaves the Clan to become a kittypet. He lectures Bluefur on how she's moping around camp, not doing anything, because of Snowfur's death. He then tells her that she's going to the Gathering that night. He soon falls ill, and Adderfang stands in as temporary deputy. He later is healed by Featherwhisker's treatment. When Goosefeather talks to Bluefur, he remarks that Tawnyspots will not die yet. Tawnyspots' sickness is recurring, and grows worse as time passes. Smallear and Dappletail say that they can't even get a wink of sleep with Tawnyspots padding back and forth to go to the dirtplace.
Eventually it renders him so weak that he must step down from the position of deputy and become an elder. There are two warriors that have a good chance at succeeding him - Bluefur and Thistleclaw. He ends up being succeeded by Bluefur, much to the anger of Thistleclaw.
It is said that Tawnyspots died of his sickness, and it was a slow and painful death.

In the Original Arc

Forest of Secrets

Tawnyspots does not formally appear, but is mentioned when Bluestar explains to Fireheart that Tawnyspots decided to retire, so she had to give up her kits to become deputy. If she hadn't, Thistleclaw would've taken Tawnyspots' position as deputy and drowned the forest in blood.

In the Omen of the Stars Arc

The Last Hope

When Jayfeather and the other medicine cats gather StarClan, Tawnyspots is seen tagging along with the ThunderClan party.

In the Novellas

Goosefeather's Curse

Tawnykit is mentioned to be born along with his siblings, Dapplekit and Thrushkit, to his mother Rainfur. Cloudberry deals with the births on her own as she doesn't want Goosefeather to have visions of the kit's futures. During a great starvation, Cloudberry shares worms with Rainfur and her kits to eat. After Harepounce's death, Rainfur takes in Specklekit and Whitekit as her kits’ foster siblings. She suckles all five kits and she and all the kits survive despite the hunger. Rainfur brings out all the kits to watch a Warrior Ceremony.

Trivia

  • It was revealed by Vicky that his mate was Willowpelt, and she bore his kit, Darkstripe.[10] However, Willowpelt was still a new apprentice when Tawnyspots began getting sick.[11]
  • The painful lump in his stomach may have been a cancerous tumor.[12]
  • He's named after the pale brown spots he had on his belly after birth.[13]
  • He has WindClan blood, because his grandfather, Eaglestorm, is a WindClan cat.
