I love Tui’s characters -- you all know this -- and I love how thoughtful she is when she develops them.


As we learn more about, say, Clearsight in TLC, or Darkstalker in Darkstalker, or even just about the dragonets of destiny as time goes on, there are all sort of tidbits about them scattered throughout the series.


Is there something we learned about a particular character, or about their backstory, that you found especially surprising or interesting?


This thread will definitely have spoilers, so mark them and tread carefully if you haven’t read all the books!

hmm.. there were a lot of really surprising things to me. I was pretty surprised about MudWing mothers not caring about their eggs, and (SPOILERS FOR TLC) I was also kind of shocked to learn that Queen Wasp could just take away your mate like nothing ever happened?? 

Also, (MORE SPOILERS FOR TLC) I was pretty surprised that Admiral didn't really talk about Blue and Luna's mothers. I kind of want to dig deeper into his backstory and his childhood and see if the policies were different when he discovered he was a flamesilk.

Hmm, my fav would have to be Turtle's backstory. How he discovered his powers and such! So cool! Fathom was intresting too.

I think i was a bit surprised when Morrowseer told Feirceteeth's mother he would've much preferred SecretKeeper to have the dragonet of destiny. 

 

 

THEN i realised that was his mate. That was interesting, MORROWSEER BEING MOON's Father?! That's a case of extreme different family members.

Learning about everyone's parents has always been a surprise, and gave insight on how they became the dragons they were.  I think the most interesting of all of these, however, is Peril's father.

 

Chameleon was a SkyWing when Kestrel hatched Peril.  However, he still had a RainWing's brain and a RainWing's personality.  This means that Peril is 100% SkyWing in physical appearance, but half RainWing in mind and personality!

 

And if you look at her character, this is completely consistent with how she behaves.  She's always aloof and scatterbrained and spontaneous, just like a typical RainWing.

I think it's really surprising that Peril's dad is an evil RainWing who can't change his scales, a servant of Queen Scarlett (like herself), Webs's would-be-murderer, some rich lazy "MudWing traitor," and an evil NightWing who hates RainWings! I also think... you know... Qibli's family, and Moonwatcher's dad... like... Morrowseer? No way!

Something I had hoped would be revealed (but I'm not sure if it will be) was the identity of Glory's parents. Since parents are an important part of character development it would be cool to see their personalities. I know we got Grandeur, but still...

 

A minor thing in Darkstalker was that RainWings traded with other tribes often, which I'd guess they closed up when the war or the NightWing's plan begun. I can totally imagine each dragon trying to be flashier and attract more attention to their wares, lol.

 

In TLC Sundew has a ton of pouches full of useful, and mainly herbal/enviromental stuff, and I kinda wondered where LeafWings actually live, since I'm pretty sure you can't find bullet ants underground. (I'm not certain on that, if not the bullet ants then that smoking branch she used at the temple) That means they most likely live in the Poison Jungle and not underground like I first thought (and many others, I'll assume) If they don't live in the jungle they'll at least visit.

 

I agree that Onyx's backstory was really cool, I didn't see her parentage coming! Tbh I thought she was an animus at first. I actually thought Jerboa was Onyx in TOP (for some reason, they have totally different personalities)

I think Sunny definitely has an interesting backstory!!! First of all, she's HALF NIGHTWING??? Second of all, her father was AN ANIMUS!!!???? And third of all, NOW SHE'S A SANDWING PRINCESS!!!!!?????????

 

I found it just a little ehh that all the female dragonets of prophecy turned out to be princesses, but at least Glory is a queen. . .

I was surprised that it was Sora trying to kill Icicle, which she was doing because Icicle killed Crane. But they keep using the word murder which i think is wrong because it happened during the war, the dictionary explanation of murder i found said: the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.

 

Spoilers for TLC

I think there must be some history between Cricket and Lady Scarab, maybe they are related somehow? her mother was never mentioned, she only mentioned Katydid and her father not caring where she was.hmm. could explain why Cricket is immune to mind control because then she would be related to Wasp and have some version of the mind control gene that makes her immune, or maybe even have the power to control minds! would that make Cricket the next Hivewing queen?

Probably Sunny being half Nightwing, I never knew hybrids existed until then so that was a nice surprise, the prophecy being fake is also pretty surprising for me.
