|"Can you please tell them whatever it is I did to deserve this, I'm sorry? [...] Yes, but it would make me feel better if a cat who talks to StarClan directly could pass along my message. Please?"|
|— Voletooth pleading Mothwing to speak to StarClan after he's stung by a swarm of bees in Mothwing's Secret, chapter 6|
Voletooth was a RiverClan warrior under Leopardstar's leadership in the lake territories. As an apprentice, Volepaw was mentored by Blackclaw and partook in the Great Journey. He soon earned his warrior name, Voletooth. After training an apprentice, Minnowtail, Voletooth retired to the elders' den. He died from starvation and thirst during a drought, and joined StarClan.
