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

Voletooth was a RiverClan elder who previously served as a 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 after.

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.

―Voletooth trying to interpret Mothwing's prophecy at a Gathering Sunset, page 153

"I must have angered StarClan. Why else would so many bees come after me at once?"
―Voletooth after he's stung by bees Mothwing's Secret, chapter 6
When Mudfur collapses, Mothwing calls for help and Blackclaw, Swallowtail, and Volepaw arrive. Mothwing snaps at them to fetch Leopardstar, and Volepaw doubles back to fetch the Clan leader. Moons later, Voletooth is stung by a swarm of bees, and Blackclaw and Swallowtail support him to Mothwing's den. While Willowpaw fetches herbs, Voletooth believes StarClan is angry at him and sorrowfully pleads for Mothwing to tell StarClan he's sorry. Mothwing, who doesn't believe in StarClan, panics until Willowpaw steps in and assures Voletooth she'll speak to them. During the Great Battle, Voletooth appears as a StarClan spirit to fight against the Dark Forest.
