Hollowspring is a black tom.
Hollowspring is a ShadowClan warrior that has served under Tigerstar's leadership in the lake territories. Hollowkit and his littermates Spirekit and Sunkit were born to Berryheart and Sparrowtail. While journeying back to ShadowClan, Hollowkit was nearly taken by an owl but was saved by Tigerheart, though resulting in Tigerheart's death. Hollowkit joined ShadowClan with his family. He became an apprentice named Hollowpaw with Grassheart as his mentor. He later earned his warrior name of Hollowspring.
In the A Vision of Shadows arc
- Hollowkit is with his parents and littermates when Violetshine greets Berryheart, she notices Berryheart's kits, and their mother introduces them to Violetshine, adding that one of them may be her apprentice, which causes the littermates to fight over who receives her as a mentor.
- Berryheart explains that while going back to ShadowClan, an owl came and attempted to take Hollowkit, and Tigerheart managed to free Hollowkit but resulted in the owl dropping Tigerheart, and caused the dark tabby to suffer massive internal injuries. Violetshine then notices that Hollowkit has multiple clumps of fur missing and a healing scratch on his shoulder. Berryheart continues, saying that despite their attempts to get him to Puddleshine, Tigerheart succumbed to his injuries.
- Hollowkit and his littermates are present when Tigerheart is resurrected as Tigerstar, and follows his family to the now revived ShadowClan.
- While Alderheart is in the ShadowClan camp treating Puddleshine, he hears Berryheart hurrying toward him. She says that Hollowkit has a cough and is worried for his life. Alderheart examines him and tells the queen it's not serious. He gives Berryheart some tansy for the kit and advises her to keep him away from his siblings. The queen tells him Sunkit and Spirekit are sleeping with Yarrowleaf's kits, and Alderheart tells Berryheart that's fine.
- Hollowpaw has earned his warrior name of Hollowspring.
In the Super Editions
- The young tom, Spirekit, and Sunkit are now one moon old. The kits have tasted their first prey, and are now exploring around. Despite their growth, Hollowkit and his siblings still suckle from their mother.
- Sometime after, Hollowkit and his brother, Spirekit, stalk Lightkit and Pouncekit, with Tigerheart wondering if the kits are old enough to travel yet. The kits tussle and Hollowkit pounces at Pouncekit. The tom-kit rears and hooks his tiny claws into the gray kit's shoulder, so she flops down dramatically with a wail. Hollowkit stands triumphantly on Pouncekit's flank.
- Tigerheart drops a mouse, and the kits rush over. Lightkit sniffs at the prey, and Hollowkit and Spirekit hurry over. Spirekit complains, and his brother wrinkles his nose. At dusk, the tom-kit is seen exploring beyond the camp wall with Sunkit, and Dovewing sees the kits as they sniff at some roots. An owl swoops overhead the distracted kits, and Tigerheart orders them to hide. Before he can move, the owl dives for Hollowkit, its talons reaching out to grab him. Dovewing and Tigerheart manage to fight the owl off, but Tigerheart is seriously wounded. As his mate screeches with Berryheart, the kits mewl in terror.
- When Tigerheart dies and joins StarClan, he sees Hollowkit with his brother and sister, along with his own kits, being shielded by Berryheart, Cloverfoot, and Cinnamon from his corpse, as it is being carried by Sparrowtail and Rippletail.
- While his companion, Cinnamon, checks his legs, Hollowkit, and his siblings hide behind their mother. Berryheart thanks Tigerheart for saving Hollowkit, and he remembers how light-weighted the tom was as he saved him. He and the other cats return to ShadowClan and are accepted with joy.
In the Novellas
- He is mentioned by his mother Berryheart to Dovewing, asking if she thinks Hollowkit is coming down with a cold. Dovewing dismisses it and says he is fine, which irritates Tawnypelt, who wonders if Dovewing even cares if a kit is sick.
- He is later seen by Tawnypelt, playing with the other kits while Berryheart and Cloverfoot watch over them.
