Leafshine is a she-cat with glossy fur.
In the Super Edition Arc
- When the tunnelers are disappointed that none of Mistmouse's kits were chosen to be trained as tunnelers, Heatherstar informs them that she understands, but reminds them that Leafshine's death was still fresh in their memories. Tallkit recalls that he had heard Palebird and Brackenwing talk about Leafshine, who died in the same cave-in that crippled their fellow Clanmate, Lilywhisker.
- After Heatherstar decides to stop letting any Clanmates train as tunnelers again, Hickorynose supports her, saying that he did not want his kits to die like Leafshine or Sandgorse.
- Kate thinks of Leafshine as a dark brown striped tabby with white paws and pale blue eyes.
