Lightfeather is a small white mare, with white feathers. She has a white mane and tail. Her tail is ringlet.
Lightfeather is a sweet and kind mare, with a sensitive nature (in a good way).
Lightfeather is good and well cared mother to Star. She even was able to give up her life to save him.
- Lightfeather is Star's dam, and died shortly after her colt was born.
- Her dam was killed by a bear.
- Her herd of origin is Snow Herd, and she is Icewing's filly, meaning Icewing is Star's grandsire.
- She's Frostfire's half-sister, as they both had the same sire, Iceriver.
- When Star was born dead, she nursed him back to life by rubbing his chest and biting his ear really hard.
- Lightfeather whispered secrets into Star's ears, which helps him later throughout the books. Star often recalls her voice in his ears, repeating her secret, "Heal them."
- The stories about Lightfeather are Morningleaf's favorites.
- When she was with foal, she was abandoned by the herds and was forced to migrate by herself through a thunderstorm.
