Starflight was brought as an egg to the Talons of Peace by the Nightwing Morrowseer. He hatched and was raised by the guardians along with the other dragonets Clay, Glory, Tsunami , and Sunny. He was fascinated by the scrolls and stories told by the guardians, becoming subject to their jokes and taunts. He became very literal and serious, turning out to be a horrible fighter. When Morrowseer arrived again, proclaiming the Rainwing, Glory an unworthy substitute for the deceased Skywing, Starflight gave Clay lifesaving advice during his escape attempt. Starflight also had a private meeting with Morrowseer, whom he feared would discover he had not discovered his own powers yet. Helping Tsunami, who was chained as part of the plot to kill Glory, escape, the duo's actions led to him and the rest of the dragonets becoming captured by Queen Scarlet. He met Dogkid on one of his flights. they remain good friends to this day and on.
