"We heard your warning, and we're not moving."
— Sunrise to Crowfeather in Squirrelflight's Hope, page 321

Sunrise is a long-furred,[5] well-muscled and broad-shouldered,[6] yellow she-cat with wide paws.[7][6]

Sunrise is a Sister. She was born to the Sisters' leader, Moonlight, along with her sister Ice and brother Earth. She remained in the Sisters, and reunited with her brother again. She later fought in the Battle against the Sisters, fighting Harestar and survived.

Squirrelflight's Hope

Sunrise is part of the Sisters, led by Moonlight. She is initially hostile towards Squirrelflight and Leafstar, but warms up to them. Two days later, a ThunderClan-SkyClan patrol comes to rescue their cats. Tree, SkyClan's mediator, recognizes Moonlight as his mother, who abandoned him as a kit per the Sisters' custom, and thus greets her in a hostile manner. Upon seeing Tree, Sunrise gets excited to see him, calling him by his old name, Earth, and Squirrelflight realizes that both Tree and Sunrise have the same pelt shade. However, Sunrise's excitement fades when Tree condemns his mother for abandoning him. Moonlight nonchalantly defends her actions as Sunrise stares down at her paws in guilt.
Later on, Sunrise is part of a patrol with Snow, Hawk, and Tempest. They trespass onto ShadowClan territory, where Strikestone and Stonewing encounter them and try to fight them off. In the scuffle, Sunrise shreds Strikestone's ear, to which Stonewing severely wounds Sunrise's flank in retaliation before escaping with Strikestone. Due to the severity of the wound, Snow has the patrol go to ThunderClan territory to seek help from Squirrelflight. Squirrelflight encounters them while leading a patrol of her own, and decides to get Sunrise the help she needs. Bramblestar, furious that Squirrelflight has brought in strangers to the camp and went behind his back yet again, refuses to give Sunrise the treatment she needs. ThunderClan becomes divided between helping an innocent cat and fueling more fights against the other Clans. Ultimately, Bramblestar sends Jayfeather and Alderheart to the Moonpool to seek guidance from StarClan. Leafpool, however, knows that Sunrise is pressed for time and she needs treatment before the wound gets infected, and manages to convince Bramblestar to at least let her dress the wound to prevent an infection.
At the following Gathering, Tigerstar announces the Sisters' presence near Clan territory, and that they attacked Strikestone and Stonewing, and angrily reveals that Strikestone's wounded ear got infected and couldn't be saved, resulting in Strikestone losing his hearing in that ear. RiverClan and WindClan agree, though ThunderClan lies about the Sisters in their camp, while SkyClan remains neutral. After the Gathering, Bramblestar tells Squirrelflight that the Sisters need to leave ThunderClan's camp before another fight instigates. Squirrelflight runs ahead and tells the four she-cats to leave. Snow, Tempest, and Hawk fear that Sunrise isn't fit enough to travel, but Leafpool assures that they just need to watch over her for the time being and treat her wound. Snow thanks Squirrelflight for her efforts to help Sunrise before departing with her kin.
