Childhood Edit

"'Wait! She's been poisoned!' Scarkit yowled, dashing towards the ThunderClan Deputy."
- Scarkit explaining to Twilightpelt that Bolta had poisoned Dewclaw

Greykit (Scarstripe) was born in ShadowClan to Shadowheart and Midnaclaw during Redstar's leadership. He was brother to Northkit, his white furred sister. Five moons after his birth, Bengal attacked ShadowClan, killing Northkit. Twiliclaw escaped with Greykit, but not until Bengal claws Greykit down his back, leaving deep gashes that would eventually become his stripe-like Scars. Redstar re-named Greykit to Scarkit, and that was when the adventurous kit decided to leave ShadowClan.
Scarkit travelled west, until he came across the recently attacked ThunderClan camp. He witnessed Bolta, one of Bengal's followers, forcing Dewclaw, the deputy to eat Deathberries. After they had left, Scarkit saved Dewclaw's life by feeding her Yarrow just moments before she would have died. Fernstar, the leader of ThunderClan at the time, had died, and in a dream from StarClan, Lightningstrike, the Medicine Cat, announced that Twilightpelt was to become the next leader. As he had saved Dewclaw's life, Scarkit was invited to go to the Moonpool with Twilightpelt and Dewclaw.
After Twilightpelt had recieved his nine lives, Scarkit was brought back to the camp and was invited into ThunderClan. As he was now six moons old, Lightningstrike decided that the new kit was to be his apprentice, and Scarkit once again travelled to the Moonpool to become Scarpaw, Lightningstrike's apprentice.
After six moons of training, Scarpaw recieved his Medicine Cat name, Scarstripe.
