Marshshade is a large, handsome, burly, muscular, dark brown tabby tom with green, almond-shaped eyes, and a pale underbelly, chest, muzzle, and paws.


Marshshade is ambitious, proud, and a tad oblivious, eager to become leader of his Clan and easily manipulated. Despite seeming like an air-head throughout life, he will fight to the death in attempts to defend his honor and reputation. He is confident of his abilities as a warrior, and a bit too cocky at times. Being an influential, powerful cat has earned him the respect of many of his clanmates. After death, he lost some of his weaker characteristics, the welfare of his kits growing to become his one major concern, often threatening Risingfeather in her sleep.


Marshshade is first seen as an influential warrior in WinterClan, most likely to become the next deputy after Stonetooth, the current deputy under the leadership of Maplestar, retired.

His apprentice was Red-eye, and the two were fairly close friends.

He was seduced by Risingfeather, the young medicine cat of his Clan, and the two become mates for a brief period. When she becomes pregnant with his kits, she lures him out of camp.

After discussing the future of the pair, and some brief threats, Risingfeather kills him with a neat blow to the neck.

Later on, Risingfeather gives birth to his kits- Bluekit, Guppykit, and Reedkit.
