Brambleclaw is a big, brown tabby tom with amber eyes and the son of Tigerstar. He is ThunderClan's current deputy, and Tawnypelt's (ShadowClan warrior) brother. He is Lionblaze, Jayfeather, Tigerheart, Flametail and Dawnpelt's uncle. He is sometimes ambitious and worries a lot. Some consider him to be untrustworthy because of his father, but his mother, Goldenflower, rejected this way of thinking. He is also Sandstorm's half-brother, making his mate, Squirrelflight, his half-niece. In the last book [clarification needed] he will become leader.
