Grandmother(s): Brightheart, Frostfur (great-grandmother)
Dovewing, a fluffy pale gray she-cat whose eye colour has been alternately described as blue, golden, and green, is the daughter of Whitewing and Birchfall, and sister of Ivypool. She was born at the end of Sunrise and it is mentioned that either she or her sister is the third cat of the prophecy, as Hollyleaf wasn't really part of the prophecy. Her mentor is Lionblaze. The cat on the front of The Fourth Apprentice is Dovewing. In The Fourth Apprentice, it is revealed that her power is the ability to hear and see things that are very far away. Dovepaw is later found to be the third cat of the prophecy. Even though Dovepaw is excited about being the third cat in the prophecy, she hates to hide the secret from her clanmates. In Night Whispers, Dovepaw ends up telling Ivypaw why she has such good senses; Ivypaw forgives her. When she asks Jayfeather why she has to keep the secret from every cat, he asks her if she even wants to be special. She says yes, even if she doesn't.
It is also rumored that Dovepaw may have a small crush on Tigerheart of ShadowClan. This is confirmed in Night Whispers, when the two of them admitted their feelings for each other. They began meeting on the ShadowClan-ThunderClan border by night, and at one point Dovepaw mentioned to Tigerheart that ThunderClan had some catmint, a herb which could cure ShadowClan's sick medicine cat Littlecloud but which was supposed to be a secret. Tigerheart told ShadowClan this information, and at one point Ivypaw was captured to get the catmint. In the Sign of the Moon, Dovepaw earns her warrior name Dovewing.
Dovewing is also granddaughter to Cloudtail and Brightheart (Whitewing's parents) and Dustpelt and Ferncloud (Birchfall's parents), great-granddaughter to Princess (Cloudtail's mother), Frostfur (Brightheart's mother), Brindleface (Ferncloud's mother) and kin to Leafpool, Squirrelflight (Firestar's daughters), Jayfeather, Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, Sorreltail, Honeyfern, Molepaw, Cinderheart and Poppyfrost. During her warrior assessment, Icecloud falls through the tunnels that supposedly buried Hollyleaf. Dovewing then rescues her, leading Jayfeather and Lionblaze to the fact that Hollyleaf might not be dead. Dovewing is the reincarnation of Dove's Wing, an ancient cat.
