Leah Lightflames was the daughter of Stonefall Lightflames. She was a beacon of hope and happiness to the otters, and well loved by everyone. She was thought to become the leader of Holt Lightflames after her father, but it never happened.

Aphrodite was playing on the line of being good or evil, and one night, he found Leah gathering hotroot pepper for the Holt's supper. Aphrodite shot an arrow into her spine, wounding her greatly. She managed to stagger back to the Holt with the pepper, though she died soon after.

After Rigel's band got to the Holt, an otter called Narot told the travelers Leah's tale.
