"Without ShadowClan, there can be no ThunderClan, no WindClan, no RiverClan, no SkyClan. Five Clans or none. ShadowClan needs you, Tigerheart. It's not your time to die. You have to go back."
— Spiresight to Tigerheart in Tigerheart's Shadow, page 400

Spiresight is a small[6] and skinny black tom[5] with yellow eyes.[7]

He was first seen as Spire, and was a healer of the guardian cats. As a healer, the other cats often noted that he sometimes had weird dreams. He becomes friends with the former ShadowClan deputy Tigerheart, and accompanies him on his patrol back to ShadowClan, but sacrifices his life to save Pouncekit, and is renamed by Tigerheart to Spiresight in honor of his memory. Spiresight later goes to StarClan and gives Tigerheart one of his nine lives.

"It's not important that I belong. It is important that I make the journey."
—Spire Tigerheart's Shadow, page 300
In Tigerheart's Shadow, Spire is one of the healers for the guardian cats and is often accompanied by Blaze, a young kit whom he looks after. Spire is noted to be rather weird and often draws images in the dirt. As Tigerheart begins to get to know him, Spire informs him that Tigerheart's rightful place is back in ShadowClan, and accompanies the dark tabby on his trek back to ShadowClan, where he leads the patrol with his visions. However, he dies saving Pouncekit, Tigerheart's daughter, and Tigerheart gives him a warrior name in his memory, renaming him Spiresight. Spiresight is later seen in StarClan, and gives Tigerheart one of his nine lives during his leadership ceremony.

Ceremonies

Spiresight's warrior ceremony
Tigerheart: I, Tigerheart, deputy of ShadowClan and leader of this patrol, call upon my warrior ancestors to honor Spire. He never knew the warrior code, and yet he lived by it. He healed the sick and protected the weak. He gave his life to save another. I commend him to you as a warrior of ShadowClan, and from this moment on he will be known as Spiresight, for his visions and his wisdom.
