Cinderpelt is a ThunderClan medicine cat who at first was training to be a warrior, but got into a trap meant for Bluestar that Tigerclaw created and got her hind leg crippled after being hit my a monster, forced to become to a medicine cat. She was trained by Yellowfang, but her former mentor was Fireheart. Her role becomes more important in the New Prophecy arc. She first appears in Into the Wild when they are suckling from Frostfur and dies in Twilight in the New Prophecy arc defending Sorreltail and her kits; she then becomes reincarnated into Cinderheart.
Cinderpelt was described as a dark grey she-cat with blue eyes and a crippled back leg.
