For everyone who read Power of Three, they know about hollyleaf. How she ruined Leapool and Squirrelflights lives. She wanted to follow the code,but being the daughter of the Med. cat and half clan drove her mad.
After finding out her father was Crowfeather, a WindClan warrior, Hollyleaf snaps. Obsessed as she was with the warrior code, she could not stand being both a medicine cat's kit and half-Clan. At the Gathering she revealed the truth about her heritage, screeching her hate for the cats who gave birth to her and Squirrelflight, who lied to her and her littermates. She is shocked by the blatant disapproval the other cats show for her revelation, believing that she had done the right thing. Leafpool, ashamed of what she had done, steps down as the ThunderClan medicine cat. Hollyleaf leaves the Gathering and returns to ThunderClan. Hollyleaf then finds Leafpool's deathberries and prepares to force the medicine cat to eat them when Leafpool says she has already lost everything, and that it would be worse for her if she stayed alive. Hollyleaf hesitates, then lets Leafpool live.
Hollyleaf decides to leave the Clans, because she couldn't stand being a half-Clan cat and a medicine cat's kit, and she is spotted running for the tunnels. Lionblaze and Jayfeather follow her to try and stop her, but Hollyleaf does not listen. She then admits that she was the one who killed Ashfur. Jayfeather reaches into her memories, and he realizes exactly how she killed Ashfur. Just as she enters the the tunnels to leave the Clans, the tunnel entrance collapses. It is unknown if she was truly killed in the collapse.
Hollyleaf: "You think you know me. And my brothers, Lionblaze and Jayfeather of ThunderClan. You think you know us, but everything you have been told about us is a lie! We are not the kits of Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight."
Brambleclaw: "What? Squirrelflight, why is she talking such nonsense?"
Squirrelflight: "I'm sorry, Brambleclaw, but it's true. I'm not their mother, and you are not their father."
Brambleclaw: "Then who is?"
Squirrelflight: "Tell them, Hollyleaf. I kept the secret for seasons; I'm not going to reveal it now."
Hollyleaf: "Coward! I'm not afraid of the truth! Leafpool is our mother, and
Crowfeather - yes, Crowfeather of WindClan - is our father. These cats were so ashamed of us that they gave us away and lied to every single one of you to hide the fact that they had broken the warrior code. And it's all her fault. How can the Clans survive when there are cowards and liars at the very heart of them?"
