"Will Sparkpelt be joining us soon?"
— Flickerkit to Larksong in Squirrelflight's Hope, page 360

Flickerkit is an orange-and-black tom.[2]

Flickerkit was born stillborn to Larksong and Sparkpelt of ThunderClan, with his littermates, Finchkit and Flamekit. Larksong died soon after, and the two went to StarClan together. There, Larksong named his son Flickerkit, a name that he and Sparkpelt had planned to give one of their kits. Together, Flickerkit and his father watch over their family from StarClan.

Squirrelflight's Hope

"ThunderClan has lost two brave warriors, for I know Larksong's kit would have followed in his father's paw steps. Larksong was always kind to his Clanmates and loyal to his Clan. May StarClan welcome him with open hearts. He can never be a father to his kits here, but his memory will live on in them and in the hearts of the cats he's left behind. We will miss him and the kit we never had the chance to know."
—Bramblestar at Larksong's and Flickerkit's vigil Squirrelflight's Hope, page 263
He is the last of his littermates to be born to Sparkpelt and Larksong. After Sparkpelt finishes giving birth, Larksong dies beside his new family, and Squirrelflight, the kits' grandmother, realizes that the last kit was a stillborn. They take away Larksong's and the kit's body for a vigil. At the vigil, Bramblestar, Flickerkit's grandfather, says that he believes the stillborn would have followed in his father's paw steps and become an honorable and great warrior. Bramblestar helps dig the grave for Larksong and the kit, and the Clan mourns for the kit and Larksong. The loss of her son and mate sends Sparkpelt into a depression and stops her from interacting with her surviving kits, Flamekit and Finchkit.
When Squirrelflight visits the Sisters, she mentions that her daughter's mate and son had died, to which Moonlight apologizes for her loss, and offers to do a ceremony to help the kit find his way. Blossomfall believes it to be nonsense, but Moonlight explains that since the kit had died, he wouldn't know where to go and the ceremony would help him find his way to StarClan. The Sisters perform a ceremony, much to the chagrin of Blossomfall and Cherryfall, but Squirrelflight and Leafpool take interest in it. Afterward, Moonlight describes the kit's pelt color, which she certainly wouldn't have known, and also describes Larksong beside his son.
When Squirrelflight and Leafpool enter StarClan, they are greeted by many cats throughout their life. Larksong, who is showing them around, introduces them to the kit, revealing he has named him Flickerkit, and Flickerkit is happily playing with Dandelionkit and Juniperkit, Squirrelflight's deceased kits. Squirrelflight realizes she must tell Sparkpelt that her mate and son are safe in StarClan. When Squirrelflight decides to leave StarClan, she bids goodbye to Larksong and Flickerkit. When she returns to ThunderClan, Squirrelflight talks to Sparkpelt as her daughter is still extremely depressed, mentioning Larksong and Flickerkit. Sparkpelt doubts her mother, believing her to be lying so she would feel better, but when Squirrelflight mentions Flickerkit's name, Sparkpelt explains that it was a name that she and Larksong chose between each other, and no other cat knew. Squirrelflight explains that her mate and son would want her to be happy. This uplifts Sparkpelt, and she decides to spend more time with Flamekit and Finchkit.
