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


In the New Prophecy Arc


Volepaw is listed in the allegiances, and is apprenticed to Blackclaw, although he does not play a large role in the book. He travels with most of RiverClan on the Great Journey. During the book, he and his Clan shelter with the Tribe of Rushing Water on the way to their new home.


Volepaw does not formally appear in Starlight, but is listed in the allegiances.


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. He is one of the first RiverClan cats to be made a warrior at their new home. 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 mentioned in the Gathering when he 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.
