The Forgotten Warrior

Larkpaw and Crouchpaw are announced as new WindClan apprentices at a Gathering. Only WindClan cheers for them, as Onestar had been arguing with Firestar earlier about ThunderClan cats crossing the WindClan border, which causes the other Clans to be angry with them. Ivypool thinks about how sad it is that Onestar ruined their special moment to be presented in front of all the Clans.

The Last Hope

The WindClan she-cat is mentioned by Mousewhisker when he and Birchfall report that they've arranged to meet Sunstrike, Harespring, and herself at the border. She is seen with Harespring and Sunstrike, waiting to meet the ThunderClan cats, when they are caught by a different ThunderClan patrol consisting of Foxleap, Graystripe, and Brackenfur, who accuse them of passing onto ThunderClan territory.

She and her Clanmates accompany the ThunderClan patrol and collect the herbs together. They pass the horseplace and are frightened by a horse kit and scatter. After they regroup, Larkwing is limping from where she set her paw down on a sharp pebble. When they reach the border stream, she and Hootwhisker keep watch on RiverClan's territory while Twigpaw collects watermint.
