Warriors: The Ultimate GuideEdit

  "As an apprentice Graypaw's boldness and bravery led him to the first Clan cat to approach Rusty the kittypet, who went on to become Firestar. This boldness would lead him into trouble more than once--but it was the same courage and impulsive generosity that moved him and Fireheart to catch food for RiverClan when the river was poisoned, and to travel far beyond the territories to rescue WindClan after they had been chased out by ShadowClan.

  Like Bluestar , Graystripe fell in love with a RiverClan cat: Silverstream, daughter of Crookedstar. Silverstream died giving birth to Graystripe's kits, Stormkit and Featherkit, and when ThunderClan failed to treat these kits with the kindness that Graystripe hoped for, he took them back to their mother's Clan. It tore him apart to leave his clan--and his best friend, Fireheart--but he believed that RiverClan was the only place they'd be truly welcomed. Stormkit and Featherkit thrived, eventually taking the warrior names Stormfur and Feathertail, but Graystripe returned to ThunderClan when he realized his loyalties were not to his kits' Clan, but to his own.

  When Twolegs began to destroy the forest to make way for a new Thunderpath, they set traps for the cats in their way. Graystripe was captured while risking his life to free others, and was taken away to live with Twolegs. Although treated kindly, he never forgot that he was a warrior and always yearned to find the Clan he had lost.

  While imprisoned by Twolegs, he met a kittypet named Millie who loved him enough to travel with him all the way to the lake where the Clans had made new homes. Graystripe was welcomed like a returning hero, but it was Millie's determination that got them out of Twolegplace, and her untiring encouragement that helped Graystripe find his lost Clanmates. Millie quickly learned to hunt for prey and fight as well as any warrior, but she refused to take a warrior name or be ashamed of where she had come from. Because of this, some cats always questioned her loyalty to the warrior code--though never within earshot of Graystripe."


  • Some believe that Graystripe will choose Silverstream over Millie when he goes to StarClan.
  • In The Ultimate Guide, Graystripe is shown with green eyes.
  • It is said that Firestar did not disagree with Graystipe's love for Silverstream because it was against the warrior code, but because he thought he was being replaced.
  • In Cats of the Clans and The Ultimate Guide, Millie is depicted with green eyes.
  • In Long Shadows, Millie catches greencough, despite having previously mentioned to Firestar that she can't get sick.
  • If Millie believes in StarClan, that's where she'll go when she dies. True
  • Some believe that when Graystripe goes to StarClan, he would surely pick Silverstream over Millie.
  • Millie neglected her other kits, because she was desperate to care for Briarlight
  • Millie's reaction to Briarlight's accident is what caused Blossomfall to react how she did.
