Dovewing is a sleek, pale gray she-cat with green eyes and a torn ear.
Dovewing is a ShadowClan warrior under Tigerstar's leadership in the forest territories, previously a warrior of ThunderClan under Firestar's and Bramblestar's leaderships. Dovekit was born to Whitewing and Birchfall alongside her sister, Ivykit. Jayfeather and Lionblaze realized she was the Third cat in the Kin of Your Kin prophecy, having the ability to see and hear far from her natural limits. As Dovepaw, she was mentored by Lionblaze and went on a journey, making jealously spark between her and Ivypaw. During the journey, she fell for a ShadowClan warrior, Tigerheart, and the two grew close after. When she became a warrior, Dovewing ended her relationship with Tigerheart, but the feelings for him remained. Though she grew close to Bumblestripe, a cat from her own Clan, she didn't feel the same way he felt about her.
After the Great Battle, she lost her powers and was affected the most out of the Three. She became mates with Bumblestripe, but broke up with him later on. When Tigerheart took refuge in ThunderClan due to Darktail's Kin taking over ShadowClan, she grew close to him once more, even becoming pregnant with his kits. After having a dream, Dovewing left ThunderClan to the guardian cats where she gave birth to Shadowkit, Lightkit, and Pouncekit. Eventually, she returned to the lake with Tigerheart and joined ShadowClan to be with him. Following Bramblestar's revival, he was adamant about punishing the codebreakers, and Dovewing was revealed to be one of them. To atone for her mistakes, Dovewing went into self-exile, but she returned to ShadowClan after Tigerstar and Shadowsight brought her back.
