"He realized Thunder wasn't ready to confide in him. He might never be ready. Why should he be? Grief tugged at Clear Sky's heart. He'd let his firstborn son down, and no matter how hard he tried, he could never make up for the precious moons he'd wasted. [...] He had failed with Thunder, but he was determined he would never let his new family down. They would always know that he loved them more than he loved his own life."
— Clear Sky's thoughts on Thunder and his new family in Path of Stars, page 208


Skystar, also known as Clear Sky, is a light gray tom[3] with blue eyes.[3]

Clear Sky was the first leader of SkyClan, originally from in the ancient tribe. He was born to Quiet Rain alongside Gray Wing and has two younger siblings, Jagged Peak and Fluttering Bird. Clear Sky and his mate, Bright Stream, participated on a journey to find a new home; however, after her death, he began to change, growing fearful of losing his loved ones. At their new home, Clear Sky and his own group settled in the forest and fiercely defended his territory. Clear Sky later became mates with Storm, whom later left his camp to have her kits elsewhere. He turned away his own orphaned son, Thunder, out of his fear of losing him, and made enemies with his former friends and family.

During the the Great Battle, Clear Sky killed his own Tribemate, Rainswept Flower, and after the battle, Clear Sky, realizing his own mistakes, promised to work with the other groups, such as assisting them in defeating One Eye and Slash. He retained his fierce devotion to his group, and gained a new family with his mate, Star Flower, and their kits, Tiny Branch, Flower Foot, and Dew Petal. Gray Wing renamed his group SkyClan before he passed, and Clear Sky later received his nine lives and was renamed Skystar, picking Sparrow Fur as his first deputy. Moons later, Skystar is remembered as the first leader to have his territory marked, and guided his Clan from StarClan as they sought the other Clans.

Dawn of the Clans

"Fear is what drove you. Fear is a powerful instinct that only the strongest cat can resist. But now you see there's no need to be afraid. We have shown that death is nothing to fear. It's not the end."
—Storm to Clear Sky realizing the consequences of his actions The First Battle, page 285
Clear Sky is a member of the ancient tribe. He is a brave and bold young tom, and often cajoles his tenacious and kind-headed brother Gray Wing into his mischievous schemes. After receiving a vision, Stoneteller decides to send some of her cats on a journey following the sun trail to find a new home. Clear Sky is eager to participate in this, and he encourages his mate, Bright Stream, to join him. During the journey, Bright Stream is killed by an eagle, and Clear Sky is distraught about the death of her and their unborn kits.
When the group finally reaches their new home, Clear Sky leads a group to live in the forest. At first, he welcomes free passage to and from his group, but quickly grows obsessed with protecting his territory, and he and his cats attack anyone caught trespassing. He allows rogues to join his group, and turns away those too weak to fend for themselves, including his younger brother, Jagged Peak. This behavior only increases after the death of his second mate Storm and two of their kits. Fueled and blinded by his fear of failing to protect those he loves, he turns away his only surviving kit, Thunder, for Gray Wing to raise with the moor cats. The conflict between him and his former Tribemates arrives to a deadly battle at Fourtrees, resulting in Clear Sky killing one of his former Tribemates and almost killing Gray Wing. The battle ends when mysterious spirit cats of their fallen friends appear. Storm opens Clear Sky's eyes to his fear which misguided his actions, and Clear Sky blames himself.
He allows One Eye to join his group, believing he could help him find the Blazing Star the spirit cats spoke of. However, One Eye tricks Clear Sky, banishing him from the camp after commandeering the group. Clear Sky helps the other groups defeat One Eye and his rogues. After allowing Star Flower, One Eye's daughter, to join the group, Thunder warns his father about her sinister intentions. He ignores his son, and becomes smitten with Star Flower, believing he has finally found a worthy mate. Finally tired of his father's refusal to listen to him, Thunder leaves and makes his own camp in the forest.
Quiet Rain, Clear Sky's mother, manages to find her sons in their new home. On her deathbed, the brothers visit their mother and after learning about the Great Battle, Quiet Rain disowns Clear Sky, furious that the son she raised would murder a Tribemate. Star Flower is kidnapped by Slash, a former associate of One Eye, and Clear Sky enlists the help of the other groups to rescue his pregnant mate. Gray Wing rescues Star Flower, and she gives birth to Dew Petal, Flower Foot, and Tiny Branch. When Slash steals Black Ear, one of Gray Wing's kits, Clear Sky rushes across a Thunderpath to save the kit from being hit by a monster. After reuniting the kit with his father, Gray Wing, who is dying, suggests naming the groups into Clans. He names Clear Sky's group SkyClan after their leader's gaze that was always fixed on the horizon.

"If Clear Sky catches you with one of his cats, who knows what he'll do? I've known him for a long time. He's capable of more cruelty than you can imagine. [...] No one has ever managed to guide Clear Sky before."
—Wind Runner to Moth Flight about Clear Sky Moth Flight's Vision, page 334
In Moth Flight's Vision, tensions between WindClan and SkyClan flare when Willow Tail accuses SkyClan of stealing prey.

"Had Skystar, always so proud and stubborn, admitted he was wrong too easily? It would be more like him to cling to his opinion as long as he possibly could."
