"She'd learned that her apprentice worked better when they were in an unusual part of the forest. Fresh stimulation seemed to keep her focused, and so, whenever she could, Twigbranch challenged Flypaw with tricky battle moves or prey that was hard to catch."
Twigbranch about Flypaw in The Raging Storm, chapter 17

Flywhisker is a striped gray tabby she-cat.[2]

Flywhisker is a ThunderClan warrior who has served under Bramblestar's, the impostor's, and Squirrelflight's leaderships in the lake territories. She was born to Cinderheart and Lionblaze as Flykit along with her siblings, Snapkit and Spotkit, and had three older sibings: Fernsong, Hollytuft, and Sorrelstripe. She was renamed Flypaw and apprenticed to Twigbranch, though the pair struggled to work together and communicate. Afterwards, she earned her warrior name of Flywhisker.

History

In the A Vision of Shadows arc

River of Fire

Twigpaw makes the journey back to ThunderClan with Finpaw, and Sparkpelt leads them to the camp. When the two young cats enter, Twigpaw sees her old Clanmates again, her gaze passing over Cinderheart and Blossomfall. As they sit at the nursery's entrance, their kits frisk around their paws, playing joyfully.
A short time later, sickness begins to fall on ThunderClan. Alderheart is worried about Flykit and her siblings, since they have started venturing out of the nursery. He recalls how keen they are to explore, but imagines what strength they might need to ward off sickness.
As the medicine cats herd cats to the nursery, Alderheart sees Cinderheart with her kits, Blossomfall, and Ivypool. Blossomfall tells Briarlight, her sister, who Leafpool had moved to the nursery, that the kits can help with her exercises, and they hurtle themselves at the brown she-cat excitedly. Daisy stops them with her tail, and the small cats scramble over her; the cream she-cat warns them to be gentle.
A storm breaks out overhead ThunderClan's camp, with rain and lightning. Alderheart swiftly goes to the nursery, and as he enters, the ginger tabby gazes at Cinderheart, sheltering Snapkit, Flykit, and Spotkit from the cold. Blossomfall asks where they should go, and Alderheart suggests the elders' den, since Graystripe and Millie will be happy to see kits. The medicine cat sends the two queens with their kits to the warmer den, and races away back to the medicine den.
Alderheart wonders what might happen if the current raging sickness gets passed on to Cinderheart or Blossomfall's litters, but the queen spends the night with Flykit and her siblings in the elders' den. Alderheart ends up heading back to the nursery, having remembered Ivypool giving birth, and meets the silver-and-white she-cat's litter fondly. After a quick checkup, the young tom moves on to Cinderheart and her kits.
He notes that Flykit, Snapkit, and Spotkit are much older and bigger than Thriftkit, Bristlekit, and Flipkit. Cinderheart begs Alderheart not to disturb her sleeping son and daughters, as, according to the queen, they don't sleep much. Despite this, the gray she-cat strokes her resting kits affectionately, adding that she wouldn't want them any other way. Daisy says that Cinderheart's kits will be apprenticed quickly, and Alderheart agrees. Later, Dovewing comes back to the Clans with Tigerstar and visits ThunderClan's camp. Alderheart tells the gray she-cat the news about Cinderheart and Ivypool's new litters, and she listens eagerly.

The Raging Storm

Flypaw is now an apprentice with Twigbranch as her mentor. She is clearing twigs littering the training clearing, complaining about the work. Flypaw asks why Spotpaw and Stempaw can't help and points out that Plumpaw is stronger than her and would be better at dragging sticks. Twigbranch tells her that Plumpaw is hunting with her mentor and littermates, and Flypaw wonders why they can’t hunt. Her mentor answers that she doesn't know enough hunting moves, to which Flypaw says she’d know some if Twigbranch would let her train instead of clearing sticks. Twigbranch answers that Bramblestar asked them to do it, and comments how her littermate Snappaw isn’t complaining.
Snappaw drops the stick he was helping Finleap move, mewing he wants to be the strongest apprentice in ThunderClan. Flypaw scowls, telling him to not get too strong or else he’ll be clearing every branch in the forest. She brightens when Finleap suggests battle training and crouches, sticking her hindquarters in the air, lashing her tail, and bares her teeth. Snappaw rushes to join her and they hiss at each other. Twigbranch leads Flypaw away to see how she does in an ambush. Flypaw gets distracted and pushed over multiple times, making Twigbranch snap.
Flypaw defends herself and believes Twigbranch is making it difficult on purpose because she wants her to fail. They try again, and Twigbranch is more gentle this time. Finleap praises Flypaw and calls her a natural, making her brighten. Twigbranch says there’s no such thing as a natural and skill comes from work and training. Flypaw gives a stinging comment, mewing that she must be very skilled, since she trained for moons, which makes Twigbranch snap, saying she must learn respect. Finleap and Twigbranch discuss Flypaw in private, while Flypaw and Snappaw finish clearing the sticks. Then they go check the ShadowClan border, where they find Puddleshine trapped beneath silverthorn, and Flypaw and Snappaw are sent to fetch help from camp.
