"Does it mean Stormfur and Brook? Are they the two pebbles we have to get rid of?"
— Voletooth trying to interpret Mothwing's prophecy at a Gathering in Sunset, page 153

Voletooth is a small brown[7] tabby tom.[8]

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, joining StarClan.


In the The New Prophecy arc


Volepaw is an apprentice assigned to Blackclaw. He travels with most of RiverClan on the Great Journey. Volepaw and his Clan shelter with the Tribe of Rushing Water on the way to their new home.


Leopardstar announces at the Gathering that Volepaw had been made a warrior with the name of Voletooth, and is sitting vigil in the RiverClan camp. Later, he is one of the cats who becomes ill from the tainted water that Mothwing gave him and other cats throughout the four Clans.


Voletooth is present at a Gathering, and speaks up after Mothwing has spoken about her dream. He wonders if Brook and Stormfur are the two strange pebbles featured in Mothwing's dream, and if they must get rid of them.
