Snowtuft is an antagonist in Erin Hunter's Warriors book series. He was a ShadowClan warrior. He is a major character in The Place of No Stars.
Snowtuft is seen in the Dark Forest training when Spottedleaf and Jayfeather visit. He is in the middle of a battle training session with several other Dark Forest cats, monitored by Hawkfrost. Snowtuft is watching the training session with his eyes half closed until Hawkfrost calls Snowtuft to come foward. He creeps wariy towards Hawkfrost as he calls him, and Hawkfrost asks if he is ready to learn. Snowtuft replies yes and that is why he is there. Hawkfrost calls Shredtail to come over as well. When he comes Hawkfrost grabs Snowtuft and throughs him in the air, exposing his belly, and Shredtail is ordered to tear it open. While Spottedleaf and Jayfeather leave in horror they can hear Snowtuft howling in agony.
Hawkfrost introduces Snowtuft to Ivypaw, a ThunderClan apprentice and one of the Dark Forest's visiters, under the mentor of Hawkfrost. The white tom is later told to work with Hollowpaw, who complains about the water in the Dark Forest. Snowtuft just shoves the RiverClan apprentice in, taking no regard for his complaints.
In the next book, he is seen hiding among the bushes instead of training, which Mapleshade punishes him for.
Snowtuft is later seen heading for a meeting held exclusively for Dark Forest senior warriors. He and Hawkfrost have a chat and Snowtuft asks if any Clan cats will be hanging around the training rock. The dark brown tabby tells him no, that Brokenstar will make sure their aren't. He later participates in the Great Battle, obviously fighting for the Dark Forest, and helps Thistleclaw try to kill Ivypool while Hawkfrost kills Hollyleaf. However, Ivypool gets the upper hand and bites Snowtuft's neck, sending him fleeing. This would be Snowtuft's last appearance for many seasons, until he is encountered by Shadowsight.
After Shadowsight dreams his way into The Place of No Stars, he encounters a skinny white tom who pins him to the ground. The medicine cat is initially hostile to the white warrior, but the two warm up to one another upon realizing they're both ShadowClan.
Snowtuft is a small, thin, distorted, white tom cat with a long scar snaking from his belly to the tip of his ear. He looks slightly faded.
Although Snowtuft is a Dark Forest warrior, he doesn't seem as eager to chase blood as some of the other Dark Forest warriors. This is shown when he watches Hawkfrost's training session with half-closed eyes, implying boredom. He also tried to hide from the training at one point, which got him punished by Mapleshade. However, this doesn't stop him from being violent and seemingly sadistic, as he helps Thistleclaw attempt to murder Ivypool slowly and painfully.
However, in the years following the Dark Forest's defeat, Snowtuft became solitary, confining himself to a corner of the Dark Forest. Strangely he has been shown as slightly friendly to visitors. He appeared to regret fighting on the side of the Dark Forest cats, getting agitated when Shadowsight brought up the subject and refusing to talk about it. Interestingly, it is said that the Dark Forest itself can turn a good cat bad. However, despite spending years there, Snowtuft got a desire to redeem himself. Unlike other Dark Forest warriors such as Silverhawk, Mapleshade, and Darkstripe, Snowtuft had no desire to get involved in Ashfur's evil plans, and even helped Rootspring and Shadowsight free Bramblestar and Squirrelflight.
Despite being shown as cowardly in Omen of The Stars, and even being called such on at least one occasion, Snowtuft risks his very existence to trick Ashfur so that Bramblestar and Rootspring can rescue Squirrelflight, and even tackles the gray-flecked tom to get him away from Rootspring, despite being well aware of Ashfur's abilities, showing true bravery.
