|"Her dreams belonged to StarClan now. Every hair in her pelt, every beat of her heart, every breath belonged to them."|
|— Moth Flight on being a medicine cat in Moth Flight's Vision, page 479|
Moth Flight was the first medicine cat of WindClan who discovered the Moonstone. She was born to Wind Runner and Gorse Fur along with her siblings:Dust Muzzle, Emberkit, and Morning Whisker. She became mates with SkyClan's medicine cat, Micah, but he died before the birth of their four kits: Blue Whisker, Bubbling Stream, Honey Pelt and Spider Paw. Moth Flight struggled to find balance between motherhood and her duties to her Clan, and decided to give the kits up, splitting them up so each Clan had one kit. Thereafter, she established the rule that no medicine cat could have a mate or kits.

- "The Clans need more than leadership and strength; they need nurture and care. But it must come from within. We can't guide their paws in everything. That is why we have chosen you to be the first medicine cat."

- Moth Flight helps mentor Acorn Fur, Micah's successor, and tries in vain to save Clear Sky's son, Tiny Branch. Tensions between WindClan and SkyClan climax when Clear Sky keeps Moth Flight prisoner. The two Clans fight and Wind Runner is gravely injured. Moth Flight, guided by the moth, takes Wind Runner to the Moonstone where she receives her nine lives and is named Windstar. Moth Flight realizes she cannot be a mother and tend to her Clan simultaneously, and gives up her kits to each Clan, bringing the five Clans closer together by the bond of heritage, like the five petals on a star flower. In the manga, she helps Blue Whisker give birth, but follows her moth to join StarClan.
- In Tallstar's Revenge, Mothflight confronts Heatherstar after her leadership ceremony, and warns about a warrior who will leave his Clan in order to understand where his heart truly lies.

Moth Flight felt that Yellowfang had already atoned for her crimes by the time she reached StarClan.[blog 3]
