Lightleap is a ShadowClan warrior under her father's leadership in the lake territories. She was born as Lightkit to Tigerheart and Dovewing during their stay with the guardian cats along with her siblings, Pouncekit and Shadowkit. She joined ShadowClan when her mother chose to follow Tigerheart back to the Clans. As an apprentice, Lightpaw was mentored by Stonewing, and she later earned her warrior name, Lightleap.
