"Your name may be tiny but your spirit is not. One day the name of Tinycloud will be honored by your Clanmates, and all the Clanmates to come."
Leafstar to Tinycloud at her warrior ceremony in SkyClan's Destiny, page 22

Tinycloud is a small,[9] slight-framed, white she-cat[10] with deep blue eyes[9] and thick, smooth fur.[11]

Tinycloud is a SkyClan warrior under Leafstar's leadership in the gorge and lake territories. She was born a rogue as Tiny to Clover alongside her brothers, Rock and Bounce, later being renamed Tinykit. She was apprenticed as Tinypaw to Sparrowpelt, and despite not liking her name after becoming a warrior, Tinycloud still served her Clan. She became mates with Sparrowpelt and had two kits, Pebbleshine and Parsleyseed; however, when SkyClan was driven from the gorge, she lost both of her kits. Before the journey, Tinycloud mentored Bellaleaf, and upon arriving at the lake, she had another litter of kits, Quailkit, Sunnykit, and Pigeonkit.

A Vision of Shadows

"Once my kits are born, the Clan will seem more like its old self."
―Tinycloud to her Clanmates reminiscing over the gorge Darkest Night, page 48
Tinycloud is heavily pregnant with Sparrowpelt's kits when SkyClan reaches the lake. Once they find an area to settle and make camp in, Tinycloud makes a nest in the nursery. Her kits are overdue and the medicine cats worry there will be complications. In the end, Tinycloud gives birth to Sunnykit, Pigeonkit, and Quailkit, the first SkyClan kits born beside the lake. She is often seen with her kits, and when they become apprentices, Tinycloud returns to her warrior duties. After a conflict with ShadowClan, SkyClan leaves the lake to return to the gorge. On their journey, Sunnypaw gets trapped in mud, and Tinycloud helps free her with the assistance of her Clanmates. Later, SkyClan returns to the lake, and Tinycloud joins them on the journey back.

"Tinycloud! I'm not tiny anymore. I thought I'd be big enough to have a different name."
―Tinycloud during her warrior ceremony SkyClan's Destiny, page 22
In Firestar's Quest, Tiny is a rogue kit living in a small den with her siblings, Rock and Bounce, and their mother, Clover. After being saved from a fox by some cats, Clover joins the newly reformed Clan with her kits, and they are given proper Clan names. Tinykit and her siblings hear voices and see shiny cats in the Whispering Cave, which the Clan learns is their contact with their ancestors. Later, Tinykit is made an apprentice and given the name Tinypaw, with Sparrowpelt being her mentor.
In SkyClan's Destiny, along with her siblings, Tinypaw becomes a warrior, now known as Tinycloud. She is at first disappointed with her name, thinking she was big enough now to have a different one; however, she is lightened up by Leafstar. She sits vigil with her brothers throughout the night. Tinycloud is dispirited to be assigned to help Echosong often and later confronts her leader about it, wishing to do warrior duties instead of helping the medicine cat. Tinycloud is seen helping in a battle against rats, blocking their tunnel entrances with her Clanmates. After the battle, she fetches herbs for Echosong to treat the wounded.
In Hawkwing's Journey, after her daughter Pebblepaw is caught in a fire, Tinycloud and Sparrowpelt try comforting her. She fights against Darktail's rogues, but the Clan is forced to retreat and leave the gorge. Before they begin their journey to find ThunderClan, Tinycloud's kits become warriors named Parlseyseed and Pebbleshine, along with her apprentice, Bellaleaf. While on their journey, Pebbleshine is taken by Twolegs, and while staying beside a lake, Parlseyseed leaves the Clan to live as a kittypet. Leafstar decides that they must leave the lake to find the Clans, and Tinycloud is shown to be excited at the idea of finding them.

Leafstar: I, Leafstar, leader of SkyClan, call upon my warrior ancestors to look down upon these three apprentices.

Bouncepaw, Rockpaw, & Tinypaw: I do.
