Firepaw is a red-brown tom with ginger patches along his back, tail and face, and white patches along his legs, paws, belly, chest, and muzzle. He has long, curved claws, which accommodate good for climbing, and a thick tail for good balance. He has unusual bright, yellow-green eyes and a deep black nose. Firepaw was born as a loner, with two siblings, Sweet and Haru. His parents were concerned; no one in their families had the same brown, ginger and white fur as him, and his eyes were unheard of. Feeling conflicted, he left his family, and soon found BlossomClan.
