Gingerfur is a ginger-brown tom with a white patch on his hind leg
Gingerfur's mate, Yellowpool, gave birth to a single tomkit in greenleaf. Gingerfur names him Brownkit. Later, Brownkit catches a bad cough. The medicine cats try their best to help him, but every herb that they give to the kit seems to make him worse.
Eventually, Brownkit dies in his sleep. Gingerfur and Yellowpool are devastated. Gingerfur was especially sad because his mate said she didn't want anymore kits because she didn't want to see them die, and Gingerfur had wanted to mentor Brownkit. He buried his son himself, because he felt it was his fault that Brownkit had died, although he hadn't known that the kit had snuck off into the forest at night, which could have given him the cough.
Later, Yellowpool becomes pregnant again. Gingerfur is very proud and happy, although he is understanding to his mate when she worries about the unborn kits.
He is very proud of his son, Tatterpaw when he gets to be an apprentice, before his siblings. He is surprised when Pansyfur says that all Yellowpool and Gingerfur's kits should have been made apprentices at the time, but later agrees, when Flowerkit moans about it.
Gingerfur sits with his mate, Yellowpool, as their kits, Flowerpaw, Cedarpaw, Falconpaw and Mothpaw are apprenticed. He glances nervously at Pansyfur, as he sees that she has not been chosen to mentor one of his kits. He notes that she looks very displeased. When the ceremony is over, he tells his kits that he is very proud of them.
He helps Yellowpool to move back into the Warriors' den, and tells her that he is glad that all their kits are apprentices' now, because he can finally rest properly.
His son, Tatterfall is made a warrior, before the other kits, he is very proud of him.
Cedarpaw asks Gingerfur if she could be deputy, after her brother, and Gingerfur purrs and says his daughter 'can do anything if she tries'.
Both he and Yellowpool join the Elder's Den after a while, complaining of aching joints.
