Lionflame is a blazing golden-ginger tom with long whiskers and amber eyes.
Before this story, he was killed by a Barrenclan warrior as he accidentally slipped him down a gorge, killing him instantly. The Barrenclan was so dull with remorse that he became an elder. Lionflame's spirit came to him and forgave him, and the warrior became a warrior again.
He appears in his sister's dream at the prologue, telling her the prophecy.
