"Wild's not the same as savage."
— Amberpaw defending ThunderClan's lifestyle from Minty in Bramblestar's Storm, page 193

Ambermoon is a small,[8] pale ginger she-cat[5] with amber eyes.[9]

Ambermoon was a ThunderClan warrior under Bramblestar's leadership in the lake territories. She was born as Amberkit to Cloudtail and Brightheart alongside her brothers, Snowkit and Dewkit, and had Lilykit and Seedkit as her foster sisters. She was apprenticed to Spiderleg as Amberpaw and later earned her warrior name, Ambermoon. After training her first apprentice, Eaglewing, Ambermoon was killed by an owl.

Omen of the Stars

"Ferncloud's awake!"
―Amberkit when Ferncloud's spirit rises to StarClan The Last Hope, page 327
Amberkit, Snowkit, and Dewkit are born to Brightheart and Cloudtail of ThunderClan. The impending battle against the Dark Forest leads her mother to practice her battle moves, as the fight will likely come to the camp. When Sorreltail dies, Lilykit and Seedkit become her foster sisters.

A Vision of Shadows

"But how? None of us are strong swimmers, and without swimming there's no way to get past that burning tree."
―Ambermoon to Bramblestar before helping RiverClan during the fire River of Fire, page 168
She has gains her warrior name, Ambermoon. Her brother, Snowbush, has a litter of kits with Lilyheart, Larkkit, Leafkit, and Honeykit. Ambermoon, along with her Clanmates, suspect that something is off when Dovewing disappears from the Clan around when Tigerheart leaves ShadowClan. Snowbush dies from an infection from his broken leg, and she attends his vigil, mourning him.
When a fire breaks out in WindClan territory, Ambermoon is part of the rescue patrol that Bramblestar leads to help. They realize the fire is actually in RiverClan territory, and the warrior questions how to help without swimming. The patrol uses a tree branch to make a bridge, allowing RiverClan cats to dash to safety. Later on, Ambermoon has received her first apprentice, Eaglepaw. While on patrol, she tells Alderheart that the silverthorn still in the forest is too big to be moved. She advises that they not catch prey that's been infected by it, as it could poison the Clan.

"Yes, we catch prey for [Briarlight]. What do you take us for? She's our Clanmate! Do you think we wouldn’t help her?"
―Amberpaw defending Briarlight from Minty Bramblestar's Storm, page 193
In Bramblestar's Storm, Amberpaw is an apprentice with the mentor, Spiderleg. She's noted to have an attitude and is very curious. Amberpaw and her mentor go on patrol to the WindClan border, where she falls in the border stream. Spiderleg rescues her, and Bramblestar thinks of how good their pairing was. When the lake floods, the Clan evacuates to the tunnels, and Amberpaw is excited to explore them. Amberpaw develops a cough, and Jayfeather restricts her activity so she can heal. While on patrol, she's attacked by a rook and is rescued by Spiderleg. She is excited when ThunderClan returns to their camp.
In Squirrelflight's Hope, Squirrelflight reflects how Ambermoon was killed by an owl moons prior, and her former apprentice, Eaglewing, often thinks of her death.

Minty: "Oh, wow! That cat has no legs!"
Amberpaw: "Of course she’s got legs. The back ones don't work, that’s all."
Minty: "And she’s still alive? Don’t you have to feed her and stuff?"
Amberpaw: "Yes, we catch prey for her. What do you take us for? She's our Clanmate! Do you think we wouldn’t help her?"

Amberpaw: "I'll be fine, it's just a tickle – […] I don’t what to be stuck in that horrible tunnel. Besides, I think Minty trusts me. […] Come on, we're going to show you the forest. It'll be fun."
Minty: "What if there are foxes and badgers?"
Amberpaw: "There aren't. We cleared them out of the territory. They know better than to come back."

Amberpaw: "I'll never run away!"
