"I did it! I did what my vision told me and I brought the Clans together!"
— Shadowkit in The Raging Storm, page 314

Shadowkit is a dark[5] gray tabby tom with wide, dark stripes along his flanks.[2]

He is born as Shadowkit to Dovewing and Tigerheart, alongside his two sisters, Pouncekit and Lightkit. Dovewing had given birth to Shadowkit at the guardian cats' territory, and is taken care of by them. Later when Dovewing and Tigerheart, gaining the name Tigerstar, both take Shadowkit and his siblings back to the Clans, Dovewing tells him all about the Clans, and Shadowkit is seemingly intrigued.

He is much more perceptive to the Clans than his siblings, and has a seemingly strong connection with StarClan. He has visions that predict the future, and has a kinship to the path of medicine. When Alderheart stays in ShadowClan to heal Puddleshine, Shadowkit grows very close with Alderheart, and becomes extremely intrigued with medicine, vowing to become a medicine cat.

When he has a vision of himself drowning, Alderheart assumes that he's seeing his death. However, this turns out to be false as when his vision comes true, it's him throwing himself into the flooding lake, in which Juniperclaw and Violetshine save him, redeeming Juniperclaw and reuniting the Clans together.

History

In the Super Editions

Tigerheart's Shadow

Shadowkit and his littermates, Pouncekit and Lightkit, were born one moon early in the abandoned Twoleg den of the guardian cats. The only son of Dovewing and Tigerheart, the gray tom-kit was named after his father's clan and Spire's claim that he would "see into the shadows."
Later, Tigerheart brings a thrush to Dovewing and the kits and the gray she-cat gently laps Shadowkit so he wakes up. The tom-kit suspiciously asks if there were any scraps before slowly sinking into the bird. He looks thoughtful as he chews.
He is seen chasing his littermates around as Lightkit asks why there is more nests in the den. When Tigerheart starts to explain what a medicine cat is, Shadowkit skids to a halt along with Pouncekit. As his father starts to explain the lake territories, the dark gray tom-kit shivers, saying that its dark in the forest.
Dovewing comes back from a hunting party and Shadowkit races to meet her along with his littermates to see if she has any food. Later, the kits are outside with their father and Shadowkit asks for a "bodger" ride, to which Tigerheart responds it's a badger ride.

River of Fire

Shadowkit first appears, although unnamed, by Violetshine when she sees Dovewing in the group of ShadowClan cats. Dovewing reveals his name, along with his sisters', to Violetshine.
When discussing Tigerheart's death. Shadowkit speaks up, saying that his father is not dead. Violetshine thinks to herself that the gray tom was too young to understand, but he continues, saying that he had a dream where he was playing with Tigerheart, and he knew that it was a true dream. Dovewing strokes her tail down her son's side, and Violetshine notices he has dark stripes, just like his father. Violetshine asks why he thinks that, and Shadowkit replies that he just does. Shadowkit goes on to say that he had a dream of being in the former ShadowClan camp, and he was playing moss-ball with Lightkit, Pouncekit, and Tigerheart. Berryheart speaks up, saying that the kit had never been the former camp, causing Violetshine to wonder if Shadowkit had received a vision.
He appears, although unnamed, when his father returns as Tigerstar. Shadowkit goes with his mother to ThunderClan on her last visit there. Then Dovewing returns to ThunderClan, and he is introduced to his grandparents, Whitewing and Birchfall. Soon after, he meets his aunt, Ivypool and her kits. He later is seen going back to ShadowClan with his mother, and the cats who are ordered to accompany them, his grandparents and Fernsong.

Quotes

"This one will see into the shadows."
—Spire's thoughts on Shadowkit Tigerheart's Shadow, page 360


"I dreamed it. I dreamed about the Twolegplace Spiresight said was at the end of the Thunderpath, and then I saw beyond. There was a valley with birch trees edging a small stretch of water and then a hill rising to the moorland."
—Shadowkit Tigerheart's Shadow, page 378


Shadowkit: "I had a dream. I was playing with my father, in a place not far from here, and I know it was a true dream."
Violetshine: "What makes you think so, little one?"
Shadowkit: "I just do. We were in this big hollow, with boulders and bushes at the top and pine trees all around. Their branches hung really low. At the bottom of the hollow there were ferns and bramble thickets, and I lived in one of them with Dovewing and Pouncekit and Lightkit. We all played mossball with Tigerheart."
—Shadowkit and Violetshine River of Fire, pages 254-255
"Yes. That's why I had the dream. I knew it while I was dreaming. It was to show you the way home."
—Shadowkit Tigerheart's Shadow, page 379
