Sunbeam is a brown-and-white tabby she-cat[6] with amber eyes.[7]

Sunbeam is a ShadowClan warrior under Tigerstar's leadership in the lake territories. Sunkit and her brothers, Spirekit and Hollowkit, were born to Sparrowtail and Berryheart on their trek back to ShadowClan, their parents having fled the Clans during the reign of the Kin. She eventually became an apprentice named Sunpaw under the mentorship of Snaketooth and earned her warrior name, Sunbeam.


In the A Vision of Shadows arc

River of Fire

Sunkit is part of Tigerheart's patrol returning to ShadowClan, alongside Hollowkit, Spirekit, Berryheart, Sparrowtail, Cloverfoot, and Slatefur. Her mother, Berryheart, introduces Violetshine to Sunkit, Hollowkit, and Spirekit, adding that Violetshine may receive one them as her apprentice. Sunkit squeaks that it will be her, bouncing up and down while arguing about who it will be with her brothers. Violetshine is delighted at the kits enthusiasm, but feels guilty that Berryheart doesn't know ShadowClan is gone. When Tigerheart is resurrected as Tigerstar and revives the fallen ShadowClan, Sunkit joins her family and new Clanmates in following Tigerstar to her new home.

The Raging Storm

Alderheart mentions her when he tells Berryheart that Hollowkit should be kept away from his siblings until his cough is better. Berryheart informs the medicine cat that they are already sleeping with Yarrowleaf's kits.

In the Super Editions

Tigerheart's Shadow

Warning: Rippletail's appearances in Tigerheart's Shadow are a mistake as confirmed by Kate Cary and further installments in the canon. Slatefur was meant to be in the patrol traveling with Tigerheart.
Sunkit is born to Berryheart and Sparrowtail, alongside her brothers, Hollowkit and Spirekit. A moon later, Sunkit and her brothers have tried prey for the first time. Growing quickly, they explore further from their nest, but still need to suckle during the night. Sunkit nestles at Berryheart's belly as Tigerheart wonders if the kits are ready to travel back to ShadowClan.
When the older cats discuss how to reach ShadowClan, Berryheart and Sparrowtail tell Sunkit and Spirekit to play with Dovewing's kits. Berryheart nudges her daughter away, and and Dovewing asks Pouncekit to keep them busy. Pouncekit asks if they can listen and Dovewing tells them they may listen but must not interrupt. The kits hurry to Pouncekit, clustering closer together. Tigerheart asks Berryheart if her kits are ready to travel, but their mother points out that they are not even weaned. They consider carrying the kits, but Dovewing suggests waiting a quarter moon, and Berryheart agrees that the kits will be ready then if the weather permits.
Dovewing watches Hollowkit and Sunkit explore beyond the camp wall, with Pouncekit and Lightkit bouncing around them. Tigerheart warns them to hide as an owl appears, and Sunkit stares at him, wide-eyed. When the owl drops Tigerheart from the sky, Sunkit hides behind Berryheart as they check on him.
When Tigerheart joins StarClan, he sees Sunkit with her siblings, along with his own kits, being shielded by Berryheart, Cloverfoot, and Cinnamon from his corpse as Sparrowtail and Rippletail carry it away. Sunkit and the others travel to ShadowClan and are welcomed as the newest members of the Clan.
