|"Warriors don't attack medicine cats. And even if they did, it's worth the risk. Saving cats is why I became a medicine cat, and now I have to do this to save Mosspelt."|
|— Willowshine to Mothwing about finding more watermint in River of Fire, Bonus Scene, page 21|
She is born to Mosspelt as Willowkit, and almost immediately finds passion for learning and using herbs. She helps Mothwing during the time when several RiverClan cats became sick after drinking tainted water. Upon being made an apprentice she becomes Mothwing’s apprentice, known as Willowpaw. Leafpool also mentors Willowpaw in the ways of their warrior ancestors, as Mothwing does not believe in StarClan. When Hollypaw becomes a medicine cat apprentice, she quickly becomes friends with her. Willowpaw eventually earns her full medicine cat name, Willowshine. When Mistystar announces that RiverClan won’t be interacting with any other Clans for some time following Darktail's terrible reign, Willowshine and her mentor aren’t allowed to go to the Moonpool or speak with the other medicine cats. However, Willowshine has a vision about a six toed cat, and she goes to Alderheart to help her with the vision.
