"Yeah, can’t we even atone somehow?"
— Harelight to Mistystar after he and Icewing are exiled in Veil of Shadows, page 287

Harelight is a white tom.[4]

Harelight was a RiverClan warrior under Mistystar's leadership in the lake territories, though he is taking refuge in ShadowClan. Harekit was born to Lakeheart and Lizardtail alongside his littermates, Softpelt, Dappletuft, and Gorseclaw. He became an apprentice as Harepaw and earned his warrior name, Harelight. After he fought against RiverClan and Bramblestar's impostor in a battle between the Clans, Mistystar exiled Harelight and Icewing from the Clan for disobeying her orders, but Tigerstar gave them sanctuary in ShadowClan.

The Raging Storm

"Plumpaw and Eaglepaw think SkyClan should have stayed. So do Dapplepaw and Harepaw in RiverClan. It's only the leaders who want them gone."
—Flypaw about the apprentices' opinion on SkyClan The Raging Storm, page chapter 17
On the way to the Gathering, Flypaw mentions that she hopes Harepaw and Dapplepaw will attend so she can show off her battle moves. When they arrive, Harepaw and the ThunderClan apprentice talk while Snappaw and Dapplepaw practice crouches nearby. After SkyClan leaves the lake, several cats want to bring them back because of StarClan's will. Flypaw mentions that Harepaw and Dapplepaw think they should have stayed.

In The Broken Code arc

Veil of Shadows

"I believed that you were loyal RiverClan warriors. Yet in the battle I saw you fighting against your Clan. You disobeyed my orders. Even now that I know the false Bramblestar was evil, I must send you into exile."
—Mistystar to Harelight and Icewing Veil of Shadows, page 286
Harelight and Icewing join the rebels wishing to overthrow Bramblestar's impostor. After Dappletuft is killed during a failed attempt on the impostor's life, Mistystar has Dappletuft buried like a rogue without a vigil. Harelight and his kin quietly mourn during a Gathering. During the deadly battle between the Clans, Harelight and Icewing fight against the impostor and RiverClan, and Harelight's sister, Softpelt, is killed. As a result, Mistystar banishes them for being disloyal to RiverClan. Despite Mothwing's and Leafstar's objections, Mistystar remains firm on her decision. Tigerstar criticizes Mistystar for her choice and welcomes the exiles into ShadowClan.
