Talon is a broad, thick-furred golden tom with many scars and yellow eyes.
During the battle, he and Fernstar fight, and when Fernstar reveals that she is his sister, he denies it. This causes Fernstar to fly into rage and kill him. After his death, a she-cat named Shred addresses herself as his mate and angrily attacks Fernstar. She is so upset that her fighting skills abandon her and Fernstar flicks her away easily.
