Foxleap is a reddish tabby tom.
Foxleap was first introduced as a kit, Foxkit, in The Sight. He is the son of Ferncloud and Dustpelt and the littermate of Icekit as well as the brother of Shrewpaw, Hollykit, Larchkit, Spiderleg, and Birchfall. He becomes an apprentice in Outcast, and is mentored by Squirrelflight, but due to Squirrelflight's temporary departure to the Tribe of Rushing Water during the book, he is mentored by Sorreltail for a while. Sandstorm also takes over as his mentor for Squirrelflight when she becomes ill in Long Shadows. It is said that he wishes his warrior name to be Foxcatcher. Foxleap is nephew to Ashfur, grandson to Brindleface, kin to Cinderpelt, Thornclaw, Brackenfur, Brightheart, Honeyfern, Poppyfrost, Molepaw, Cinderheart and Whitewing. He's also uncle to Dovewing, Ivypool, Rosepetal and Toadstep.
