Dawnstar is described as a glossy black she-cat with bright yellow eyes and thin fur. Her paws are small and delicate, while her body is lean and compact with the hardness that comes from being a warrior. However, Dawnstar's eyes are old because of the fact she watched her whole clan be destroyed.
Sire: Snowclaw (thought to be dead)
Dame: ?? (deceased)
Siblings: Smokehaze, Dusktail (deceased)
Mate: Runningstream (deceased)
She was the leader of NightClan, and the deputy of the same clan under Marshstar until he died of blackcough just three moons after she became deputy. She had a mate at the time, Runningstream, and would never have any kits with him. Up until recently, Dawnstar was the leader, but now is a rogue living on her own and trying to survive the loneliness.
