"I'm coming with you. I'll miss my Twolegs, but, well, I'm a SkyClan cat!"
— Macgyver making the choice to stay with SkyClan in Hawkwing's Journey, page 237

Macgyver is a slender,[6] thick-furred,[7] black-and-white tom.[1]

Macgyver is a SkyClan warrior under Leafstar's leadership in the gorge and the lake territories. He was originally a kittypet, but joined SkyClan as a daylight warrior. After SkyClan's exile from the gorge by Darktail, Macgyver chose to follow his Clan and become a full warrior. Because of his loyalty, he was appointed mentor to Dewspring.

A Vision of Shadows

"What if they’re already strong? This could be the first sign that they’re a threat. Are you going to ignore it?"
―Macgyver to Leafstar about the revived ShadowClan The Raging Storm, page chapter 2
Macgyver arrives in the lake territories along with the rest of SkyClan; he helps build their new camp and continues training Dewpaw. After ShadowClan is merged into SkyClan, he takes part in the battle for the stolen kits. However, when Rowanclaw is killed in the battle and Tigerstar revives ShadowClan, Macgyver is wary of their hostility towards SkyClan. He is enthusiastic about returning to the gorge when Leafstar announces they are leaving, but when they are rescued by Twigbranch's patrol, SkyClan returns to the lake.

"I think you did the right thing about Harveymoon and Macgyver. Being part of SkyClan means that they have to respect the warrior code—and you—above anything else. If they don't show respect, then they don't deserve to be here."
―Billystorm to Leafstar about Harveymoon and Macgyver SkyClan's Destiny, page 104
In SkyClan's Destiny, Macgyver is a new daylight warrior, along with Harveymoon. The two are often scolded for not taking their duties seriously, and on one occasion, are banished from camp until the next full moon. However, they are eager to participate upon their return.
In Hawkwing's Journey, Macgyver searches for his Clanmates after they are driven from the gorge by Darktail. He insists on following them, being the only daylight warrior to choose SkyClan over their Twolegs. He discovers a campsite near a lake where they settle for two moons, and he defends the territory when SkyClan discusses moving on. When Parsleyseed announces he is becoming a kittypet, Macgyver attempts to dissuade him, citing his own life as a kittypet. After leaving, he becomes sick with fever, but recovers and is given Dewpaw as an apprentice.
