Driptail is a very long-haired, stocky, muscular, agile, short-legged, sleek, wise, dark blue-gray she-cat with a long, droopy tail and intense amber eyes.
She is the deputy of DuskClan.
Later, Brokenmist mentions her as her mentor, and says that "she could shred all of them", indicating she is a good fighter.
Later, her son, Tinyleap's mate, Petalbreeze, gives birth to her three grandkits, Soarkit, Duskkit, and Crookedkit. Duskkit, however, dies shortly after he is born.
They are later named Soarpaw and Crookedpaw.
During the Tawny/Dawn fight, Driptail, Palesong, Rainfall, and Tinyleap come to help them fight.
Soarpaw and Crookedpaw later are named Soarflight and Crookedtail for their bravery in the battle.
After Ironstar dies and Thrushbeak becomes Thrushstar, Driptail is named deputy. She is suprised at this, but overjoyed.
- She is part rogue, for her father, Crusher, is a former rogue.
- Her grandkits are half-clan, being Dawn/Dusk mixed.
- She doesn't know that Crookedtail and Soarflight are her grandkits, or that Tinyleap has a mate.
- Her mother died defending her.
