* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: [=ShadowClan=] treated her like this in her kithood, as they were very wary and uncertain about whether she was special or could be trusted. [[spoiler:They warmed up after she came back from the rogues.]]

rogues.
* AntiVillain: Technically, being a member of the Kin, she's an enemy of the Clans. But she only stays because she wants to feel accepted, is one of the nicest cats there, and helps the other Clans drive Darktail out the moment they ask because she doesn't agree with the way things are run. She's a villain by nothing more than ''association''.

* NotSoDifferent: From Darktail. [[spoiler:Both have been abandoned by a parental figure (his father, her mother) and felt unwanted by those around her.
