Tigerstar was a big brown tabby tom with yellow eyes and really long claws. He is shown here as a young warrior on Sunningrocks. He also had a scar across his nose bridge and a large nick out of his ear as a result of battle. He was noted for being overly ambitious, even to the extent to where he would kill Bluestar, his own Clan leader while he was in ThunderClan. He was also one of the strongest warriors in the Clans, along with Firestar and his son, Hawkfrost. After living as a rogue cat for many moons, Tigerstar became the leader of ShadowClan, whose leader (Nightpelt) and deputy (Cinderfur) had both died of disease from rats. He made Blackfoot his deputy, since Brokenstar had also made him deputy before his exile. During his years of life, several cats died. Some of these are Bluestar, Stonefur, Runningwind, Brindleface, Whitestorm, and even himself when he was gutted by Scourge (a cat he himself brought to the forest!), along with other cats who perished in the battle against BloodClan. Tigerstar was middle-aged when he died-about 45 years of age in human years.
