"You act like this is not your problem. But StarClan has sent this vision to show you that it is! If the Clans don’t stand together to settle this fight, then SkyClan will be driven from the lake."
— Frecklewish to the other medicine cats in The Raging Storm, chapter 13

Frecklewish is a leggy,[11] mottled, light brown tabby she-cat with spotted legs,[1] and pale green eyes.[12]

Frecklewish is a SkyClan medicine cat under Leafstar's leadership in the gorge and lake territories. Formerly a kittypet, Frecklepaw initially trained as warrior apprentice with Ebonyclaw as her mentor; however, after discovering she had a passion for medicine, Frecklepaw became Echosong's apprentice. Followed by earning her full medicine cat name, Frecklewish went missing after Darktail drove SkyClan out of the gorge, but after Hawkwing's patrol found missing Clanmates, she returned to SkyClan as its main medicine cat and finished Fidgetflake's training. She also became a brief mentor to Tree and Rootspring and assisted the rebels against the impostor.

A Vision of Shadows

Frecklewish is one of the many SkyClan cats that had gone missing during SkyClan's exile from the gorge. Noting that SkyClan is without a medicine cat, Hawkwing leads a patrol back to the gorge to look for their missing Clanmates. They find Mintfur, Nettlesplash, their kits, and Fidgetpaw, and learn Frecklewish is trapped in a tall Twoleg nest. They help her escape, and all return to the lake where SkyClan had settled with the other Clans.
When ShadowClan merges with SkyClan, she and Puddleshine argue over different herb techniques. Leafstar has Frecklewish attempt to train Tree, but he doesn't take well to it. StarClan sends a message to the medicine cats about approaching shadows and that SkyClan must be accepted by the other Clans. She trains Fidgetpaw and grants him his full name, Fidgetflake. She and Fidgetflake leave with SkyClan to return to the gorge until they are brought back with the rest of the Clans.

The Broken Code

"But if you leave, nothing will change. The impostor will get stronger. If you stay, you might help us undermine him just enough to win back the Clans."
―Frecklewish to Tree about exposing Bramblestar The Silent Thaw, page 277
When StarClan is silent during a harsh leaf-bare, Frecklewish questions the legitimacy of Shadowpaw's vision of their ancestors wanting them to punish the codebreakers. Upon learning of Bramblestar's impostor, Frecklewish and several other cats plan to overthrow him and reveal the truth. She temporarily mentors Rootpaw when he agrees to train as a medicine cat apprentice due to his powers, but eventually returns to becoming a warrior apprentice.

In SkyClan's Destiny, Frecklepaw is a daylight-warrior and training to be a warrior with Ebonyclaw as her mentor. After a battle with rats, Frecklepaw instinctively treats Leafstar's wound and helps Echosong treat the other injuries. When Echosong expresses her interest in training Frecklepaw, as she has talent and is very passionate, Leafstar wonders if the kittypet would be able to connect with StarClan. Echosong argues with Ebonyclaw and Sharpclaw about Frecklepaw becoming her apprentice, and Leafstar eventually allows it. She later earns her full name, Frecklewish.
In Hawkwing's Journey, Frecklewish treats the injured after raccoons attack the camp, including Echosong. She quickly interrupts a Clan meeting with news that Echosong had another vision telling SkyClan to find the spark that remains. When SkyClan is forced out of the gorge by Darktail and his rogues, Frecklewish is one of the many cats missing. Echosong mentors Fidgetpaw in her place, and SkyClan leaves their home to find the other Clans.

"I really like watching Echosong."
―Frecklepaw SkyClan's Destiny, page 148

Echosong: "I need to think about finding an apprentice."
Leafstar: "You mean Frecklepaw? Can a medicine cat live part of the time with Twolegs?"
Echosong: "I don't know. But Frecklepaw has natural talent, and she enjoys the work. She learns quickly, too."
Leafstar: "Has StarClan sent you any sign about this?"
Echosong: "I don't think I need a sign, when Frecklepaw is perfect for the job."
—Echosong suggesting making Frecklepaw a medicine cat apprentice SkyClan's Destiny, page 162

"I also need to mention Frecklepaw. She worked hard to help Echosong care for the wounded warriors, and she has learned a great deal about herbs and how to treat injuries."
―Leafstar at a Gathering SkyClan's Destiny, pages 174-175

"Shrewtooth has never shown any interest in being a medicine cat. But Frecklepaw obviously wants to change her apprenticeship!"
―Echosong angrily shooting down Leafstar's alternate idea of apprentice SkyClan's Destiny, page 321

"Leafstar couldn't resist a glance at Ebonyclaw, expecting to see the black she-cat looking annoyed. Instead, she caught a resigned eye-roll from Frecklepaw's mentor."
―Ebonyclaw's reaction to Frecklepaw's medicine cat knowledge SkyClan's Destiny, page 408

"Maybe Frecklepaw is meant to be a medicine cat after all."
Leafstar observing Frecklepaw SkyClan's Destiny, page 408

"Then you have to accept the daylight-warriors. They are our Clanmates as much as any cat, and they have equal roles to play. So Frecklepaw will be apprenticed to Echosong, just as she wishes, and we'll offer night training to all cats, not just those based in the gorge."
―Leafstar to Sharpclaw SkyClan's Destiny, page 460

Tree: "I've spent most of my life trying to stay away from Twolegs. They are obsessed with trying to tempt me into their nests with food, but I don't want to live in a Twoleg nest. Twolges are noisy, and they smell weird."
Frecklewish: "I know what you mean. I've just escaped from a Twoleg hive.'"
Tree: "Really? How long were you there?"
Frecklewish: "Moons. Luckily, Violetpaw thought of a way for me to escape."
—Tree and Frecklewish about Twolegs Darkest Night, page 246

"'Suffer'? StarClan has never wanted us to suffer before. They want to help us."
―Frecklewish to Shadowsight about StarClan's message about the codebreakers The Silent Thaw, page 161

Frecklewish: "But Bramblestar is alive. He can't be a ghost."
Tree: "The Bramblestar who came back isn't the real Bramblestar. Some cat is using his body to harm the Clans. The real Bramblestar is a ghost. He can see what's going on, but he can't contact StarClan. I'm the only cat he can talk to."
Frecklewish: "Do you mean the leader of the ThunderClan is an impostor?"
—Frecklewish and Tree about Bramblestar The Silent Thaw, page 229

Cloverfoot: "Do you think Shadowsight is behind this?"
Frecklewish: "He's very young. I was surprised that StarClan put so much trust in him. But if he is involved, I don't think he realizes what he's doing. It's strange that he's the only medicine cat StarClan has shared with all leaf-bare. There might be more to their messages than he thinks. Can you ask him about his vision?"
Cloverfoot: "He's Tigerstar's son. How would it look if the ShadowClan deputy questioned him? ShadowClan is still fragile after Darktail. I don't want to cause doubt. Besides, it might scare him into trying to cover his tracks."
Stemleaf: "So you think he has been up to something?"
Cloverfoot: "I don't think Shadowsight is capable of doing anything dishonest, but he might have made a mistake."
—Cats discussing Bramblestar's behavior and Shadowsight The Silent Thaw, pages 231-232
