Farsight was a female NightWing, with black scales and black eyes. She was Starflight and Fierceteeth's mother, although they both had different fathers. Her only known mate is Mastermind, although she had one other one, whom she had Fierceteeth's egg with. She died several years before the events of The Dark Secret, while trying to help a SeaWing who had been attacked by two SkyWing soldiers, but was killed in the process. This hints that Starflight's mother was not as stupid as Morrowseer stated, but rather kindhearted and brave, even to the point of risking her own life and her reputation to save a dragon from a different tribe that she did not know.

Morrowseer stated that Starflight's mother had been stupid, and died while trying to help a SeaWing fight off a SkyWing. Morrowseer also claimed that Starflight "didn't get his brains from her," but she might not have been as stupid as Morrowseer thought.
In the prologue, Secretkeeper yelled at Farsight when she was trying to sneak out into the rainforest to watch Moonwatcher, her daughter, hatch, while Farsight was comforting her, having been told that the egg had cracked. Secretkeeper was thinking that Farsight was a very happy and nice dragon and would forgive her.
Farsight was in the hatchery watching Starflight's egg and taking care of it (or as Fierceteeth described it, mooning over it), when Morrowseer came in to take the egg for the prophecy. Farsight didn't want to give the egg to him, so Fierceteeth offered to be taken, but Morrowseer rejected the offer. Fierceteeth was shown to be jealous of how Starflight's egg was getting all the attention.
It is revealed that Farsight had another mate, Fierceteeth's father, who died before Fierceteeth hatched.
"What if something happens to my egg while I'm gone? It's so close to hatching now."
“But… right now? Won’t I get to meet my dragonet? Can’t we let the egg hatch here and give it to the Talons of Peace later? She could grow up with us, and then we could send her to the continent in a few years. Wouldn’t that be better, to raise her like a real NightWing?"
“Fierceteeth, you’re only two years old. You’ll get to the mainland one day. And when your little sibling hatches we’ll have plenty of time together as a family.”
- She faced quite some loathing from Fierceteeth for neglecting her attention and giving it to Starflight's egg.
