"We wanted to see if it was true [Brightsky's kits] were dead."
— Skykit to Brambleberry in Crookedstar's Promise, page 285

Skyheart is a pale brown tabby she-cat[5] with green eyes.[7]

Skyheart was a RiverClan warrior under Hailstar's, Crookedstar's and Leopardstar's leaderships in the forest territories. She was born as Skykit to Piketooth and Shimmerpelt along with her brother Blackkit. She gained a foster sibling in Leopardkit after her mother, Brightsky, died soon after kitting. She became an apprentice named Skypaw with Softwing as her mentor and soon earned her warrior name, Skyheart. She later became a queen and mothered a litter of kits.

Crookedstar's Promise

"Skykit was leading the search party. Ottersplash's kits, less than half a moon old, were following her as if she was Clan leader."
―Narrator about Skykit and the others looking for Blackkit Crookedstar's Promise, page 259
Skykit is born to Shimmerpelt and Piketooth. She is depicted to be one of the more adventurous kits, often leading the other kits to play games and attack the older cats. When Brightsky falls ill and three of her kits die, Skykit and Frogkit try to sneak out of camp and to see if Brightsky and the kits were really dead, but Crookedjaw catches them and sends them back, however Brambleberry arrives and sarcastically says that kits never snuck out of camp, reminding the warrior how often he had snuck out as a kit. Skykit says that she believes that StarClan never really let kits die, but Brambleberry gently tells her that StarClan does let kits into its ranks, and that they're happy there.
When Crookedjaw asks if Lakeshine and Shimmerpelt will wonder where Skykit is, she says no, because they're too busy feeding Leopardkit, the only surviving kit of Brightsky and Mudfur. Brambleberry tells her to fetch water for her mother so that she'll be proud of her for helping Brightsky's kit.
She receives her apprentice name, Skypaw, and is apprenticed to Softwing. She is seen running in circles, and Owlfur teases Softwing about her apprentice being a pawful. Later, she receives her warrior name, Skyheart.
When Timberfur organizes patrols, Skyheart hurries from the warriors' den with Reedtail, followed by Blackclaw. She is put on a fishing patrol with Reedtail and Echomist. They are told to head upstream because there had already been a hunting patrol near Sunningrocks.

Mothwing's Secret

Skyheart: "Are you all right? Hawkfrost was pretty rough."
Mothwing: "I'm fine. I'm used to my brother's games."
Skyheart: "Hmm. You were moving kind of slowly."
—Skyheart confronting Mothwing Mothwing's Secret, page chapter 2
Skyheart is a queen caring for a litter of kits. After Hawkfrost initiates a play-fight with his sister, Mothwing, Skyheart moves from watching her kits play to confront the tabby she-cat, asking if she was all right. Mothwing insists she is fine, though the RiverClan queen is skeptical, noting that Mothwing was moving slowly. Mothwing begins to explain that she was tired from patrolling with Mistyfoot, but is interrupted when several warriors enter camp to report that Blackclaw is stuck in the mud.
When Leopardstar calls a Clan meeting to announce Mudfur's discovery of a sign, Skyheart and Dawnflower poke their heads out of the nursery, Skyheart's kits crowding around her legs.
