Crookedstar's Promise

Speckletail, Swiftbreeze and he are on a patrol trying to take back Sunningrocks when they meet and RiverClan patrol. Mudfur of RiverClan and Adderfang fight each other alone before both clans fight. Mudfur beats Adderfang and he is helped home by some of his clanmates. This is the reason Mudfur stepped down from his position as a warrior and became a medicine cat apprentice.

Bluestar's Prophecy

Adderfang is a senior warrior of ThunderClan. He and Swiftbreeze have two kits at the beginning of the book, Leopardkit and Patchkit. They later have three more kits, Willowkit, Spottedkit, and Redkit.

He is seen outside the nursery with Leopardkit and Patchkit while Bluekit watches. This makes Bluekit wish that her father would treat her like that and play with her like that.

He later puts his opinion in on how they should fight against WindClan. When Goosefeather gets a sign from StarClan saying they should attack WindClan his idea becomes more supported, especially by Stormtail. Pinestar later mentions that some warriors can go into battle with no fear, he looks at Adderfang as he says this.

Adderfang fills in for Tawnyspots as deputy while he was ill. Later, when Tawnyspots retire Bluefur thinks that either he or Stormtail will be deputy.

After Bluefur loses her kits he asks her gently if she'd like to go on patrol.

Battles of the Clans

When Lionpaw runs away from the battle, Adderfang and his former apprentice Thistleclaw take over.


He may have mentored his own daughter, Willowpelt, even though it is stated over and over that warriors do not mentor their own kits.
