In the Power of Three SeriesEdit

The SightEdit

Hollykit is born to Leafpool and Crowfeather, along with her brothers Jaykit and Lionkit. Squirrelflight takes care of them, since Leafpool is a medicine cat, and so is forbidden to have kits. ThunderClan and Brambleclaw, Squirrelflight's mate, think they're her and Brambleclaw's.
When Brambleclaw sends out a patrol, Hollykit and her brothers ask if they could come. Brambleclaw lets them "guard the camp" while he was away instead. Hollykit and Lionkit are very excited on this task, But Jaykit tells them that Brambleclaw was just trying to make them busy.
The three kits make a plan to find the fox cub's den, and sneak out through the tunnels. They are almost spotted by Brook and Stormfur, but aren't for they ran to hide into a bush. The kits reach the Sky Oak and find the Fox Den, and begin to make a plan. Lionkit suggests that they would raid in through the entrance. The fox cubs seem to be bigger then the kits expected, and almost kill them. Jaykit flees from the den but falls into the hollow. While he was being nursed, Leafpool, ThunderClan's Medicine Cat, tries to convince Hollykit to be her apprentice.
Later, Hollykit becomes apprenticed to Leafpool, taking on the name Hollypaw. However, Hollypaw does not function as a Medicine Cat Apprentice that well. When assigned herbs to go and collect, she came back with the wrong ones. Treating wounds makes her squeamish, and she doubts her true skills.
Soon, Leafpool beings to teach Hollypaw battle moves. She is excellent at them, dedicated to the Warrior Code. She believes Firestar should've chosen Graystripe as deputy.
A battle erupts when Hollypaw is out collecting herbs. She fights off a warrior named Smokefoot with Graystripe. When the battle ends, she is excitedly checking cats for wounds, but Birchfall said that she fought like a warrior.
After the fight, Hollypaw wanted to be a warrior apprentice instead of a Medicine Cat apprentice, and Brackenfur becomes her new mentor.
During the Daylight Gathering, Hollypaw wins against Heatherpaw, a WindClan apprentice, in a fighting competition. Heatherpaw complements on Hollypaw's fighting skills. Firestar then lets Hollypaw pick the first prey from the fresh-kill pile.
She and Squirrelflight both feel happy and praise Jaypaw for saving Breezepaw and Lionpaw when the fell while racing.
