"I won't leave them."
— Flight to Swoop about her kits in Outcast, page 292

Flight of Startled Heron, more commonly known as Flight, is a brown tabby she-cat.[1]


In The New Prophecy arc


Flight of Startled Heron does not formally appear in Dawn, but is listed in the allegiances. She is a kit-mother in the Tribe of Rushing Water when the Clans briefly visit the Tribe while on their way to their new home.

In the Power of Three arc


She is seen talking with another kit-mother, Swoop of Chestnut Hawk. They are discussing what would happen to their kits if the Tribe moved. Flight is very nervous, saying she would never abandon her kits, but is soothed by Swoop. Talon then tells Flight and Swoop to choose to fight, for he says, that the Tribe will protect all of the kit-mothers and their kits.

Three unnamed kits:[3] Status unknown


Flight: "Swoop, what should we do? I can’t fight while I’m suckling my kits. But they can’t flee; their eyes are barely open! And I won’t leave them.”"
Swoop: "“Don’t worry, Flight. No cat expects you to abandon your kits. I won’t leave mine, either."
Talon: "Choose to fight. That way, the Tribe will protect you as it protects all kit-mothers and their litters."
