Going Into Detail (History)Edit
Brackenfur, a golden brown tabby tom, is a ThunderClan warrior first introduced in Fire and Ice as an apprentice, Brackenpaw. He is the son of Frostfur and the littermate of Cinderpelt, and together they trained as apprentices under Firestar and Graystripe.Firestar often took over his training when Graystripe left the camp to meet with Silverstream even though meeting with cats outside one's own Clan is against the warrior code, upon becoming a warrior in Forest of Secrets.
He was considered by Firestar to become ThunderClan's deputy in Sunset, but was not chosen due to a sign from StarClan, making Brambleclaw deputy instead. He is greatly respected and liked throughout the Clan, and additionally is an excellent fighter, which allows him to be present in most battles.
In the New Prophecy series, Brackenfur takes Sorreltail as a mate, and has four kits with her: Molepaw (who dies of disease between The New Prophecy and Power of Three series), Poppyfrost, Honeyfern (who later dies in Sunrise by being bitten by a snake), and Cinderheart, later revealed to be the reincarnation of Cinderpelt, his sister. This obviously confuses certain family relationships. He is grandfather to Cherrykit and Molekit (Poppyfrost's kits). Brackenfur has no apprentice currently but has mentored Tawnypelt (before she left ThunderClan to go to ShadowClan), Whitewing, and Hollyleaf. He also trained Tigerpaw of ShadowClan for a while when Tawnypelt and her kits left ShadowClan for ThunderClan in Long Shadows.
