"Stop that! Your brother is too young to be an apprentice, and so are you."
Featherstorm to Volekit in Yellowfang's Secret, page 452

Volepaw is a tiny brown[4] tom.[5]

Volepaw was a ShadowClan apprentice under Brokenstar’s leadership in the forest territories. He was born as Volekit to Blizzardwing and Featherstorm along with his littermates, Mosskit and Dawnkit. During Brokenstar's tyranny, Volepaw was apprenticed to Brokenstar himself much too early, and died young of an infected wound.

Yellowfang's Secret

Volekit is born to Featherstorm and Blizzardwing, along with his siblings Mosskit and Dawnkit.
When his brother, Mosskit, is apprenticed to Brokenstar at less than three moons of age, Volekit is jealous and complains to his new leader that he wants to be an apprentice as well. Brokenstar promises him that when he's the same size as his brother, he can be apprenticed to Clawface. The kit, excited, tries to make himself look bigger, but is stopped by his horrified mother.
When Fernshade is kitting, Volekit tries to see what's going on, but is sent away to play with Mosspaw by Yellowfang. When Mosspaw is killed during training, Brokenstar takes on Volekit as his apprentice, telling Clawface that he owes it to Mosspaw to apprentice his brother, even though Volekit and his littermates are too young to be apprenticed. Volepaw is mentioned in Yellowfang's thoughts to have died soon after of an infected wound when Brokenstar begins forcing the apprentices to battle rats during their training.
