Since I should probably collect them all in one place instead of scattered through my homethread

 

I'mma start w/ the ones from my current homethread:

 

nightwing eyes "glow" in the dark cat-style

 

pure white or blue-white scales are more common amongst noble icewings, with patterns and other colors being more common in lower-born dragons.

 

icewings are rather historically-oriented, and as such are the only tribe to still give dragonets names from their old language, hence names like hvitur, alba, changbai.

pyrrhian food headcanons:

 

mudwings: similar to irl cajun food. it's generally very spicy, features a lot of rice and seafood, usually dishes that can be left on the fire all day and that feed large groups. maybe pancakes too. cows. sweeter than other tribes' food.

 

sandwings: ??? we know sandwings can go with very little food. lizards, camels, antelope, and cactus fruit are probably common, usually roasted on the spot or eaten raw. flavorful spices are used often; they've dominated the spice trade since the fall of the night kingdom.

 

seawings: uncooked seafood of all kinds. tropical fruits and vegetables are also eaten, and sometimes made into drinks. 

 

skywings: anything you can catch in the mountains, and also herds of goats and sheep used for meat and dairy. they don't keep cows because cows and mountains don't mix. they eat the second-least plant matter of any tribe. most things are cooked on the spot, except for special occasions, but they do eat cheese and yogurt.

 

rainwings: maybe they had a cuisine once but now they pretty clearly don't. once upon a time it was kind of mexican-ish, though.

 

icewings: seals, whales, caribou, fish. reindeer are possibly kept? they eat the least plant matter of any tribe, and never cook anything. rich but mild-flavored; many icewings can't stand flavorful mud and sand cooking.

 

nightwings: their cuisine has vanished, but once was very middle-eastern. lots of spices, goat and cow meat + milk. lots of proper cooking.

mudwings tend to engage in play behaviors for a lot more of their lives than other dragons. they're also more touchy-feely, but only with their siblings.

mudwings and icewings are more developed when they hatch than the other tribes. all dragons except silkwings, though, are much more capable as newborns than most mammals.

guide to the dragons of pyrrhia: sandwings have "pale gold or white scales the color of desert sand." that means that white-scaled sandwings are probably fairly common. and yet they seem to be considered kind of rare by the fandom.

mudwings, like cats, can have multiple fathers in a single clutch. as such, a sibling group can have more color variation than you might expect.

the pyrrhian tribes all have different names for the moons, hence the reason none of them have official names in the series--easier to just call them "the three moons" and avoid the cultural misunderstanding. the pantalans, with their more unified culture, refer to them by the ancient silkwing names: pyrophoris, lampyris, and motyxia (or possibly phrixothrix).

mudwings' biological camoflauge is augmented by the fact that in their native habitat, they're covered in mud 90% of the time. their natural colors are rarely seen, except on special occasions.

the tribes can be told apart, if you pay attention, by how their tails are shaped, moved, and held.

 

rainwings: longer than any other tribe's, prehensile, typically held curled up like a chameleon

 

sandwings: barbed, typically held curled up like a scorpion's, more flexible than any other tribe's

 

seawings: broad and flat, move side to side more than up/down

 

skywings: pointed, often held straight out, move side to side more than up/down, limited range of movement compared with the other tribes

 

mudwings: thick, with a squarish cross-section (rather than rounded like most tribes), frequently (but not always) held dragging on the ground instead of in the air

 

nightwings: triangular cross-section, frequently held dragging on the ground, but generally thinner than a mudwing's

 

icewings: long, narrow to a whip-thin point (no spikes on most of them, who knows where joy ang even got that), held with equal frequency on the ground and in the air; deceptively strong

 

silkwings: long, not as strong as most tribes', typically held dragging on the ground

 

hivewings: similar to a silkwing's but shorter, held a little off the ground, may have a stinger

 

leafwings: they've got that leaf thingy, idk. also: fairly long

i assume the part of the brain that controls a silkwing's wings exists before metamorphosis but is dormant, because growing brain tissue is hard (iirc), but if this is the case, is there a silkwing disorder where that part of the brain is activated early, essentially giving them phantom limb syndrome?

What if a dragon's home region within a kingdom could be identified by scale patterns? Example: IceWings living near the Sand Kingdom have darker scales while those living at the top of the Ice Kingdom are usually very shiny white

sandwings are most active at dusk and dawn. it is not uncommon to find them awake during the night, either, during the summer.

 

nightwings evolved as nocturnal to deal with the heat of their desert kingdom, which can reach temperatures hotter even than the sand kingdom during the day.

Great headcanons! I agree with the Sandwing sleep patterns.


Leafwings have green blood, due to high amounts biliverdin, in order to deal with the dangerous mosquitoes of Pantalan forests. Or they have chlorophyll likes plants. (Seriously, I will be sad if this isn't true)

@Oncilla Going off 'the tribes have different names for the moons' this creates a whole slew of possible hilarious and adorable nicknames for Moon. Or, consider a Silkwing that has triplets with vaguely moon-like markings naming them Pyrophoris, Lampyris, and Motyxia after the moons (with the three nicknaming eachother Pyro, Lampy, and Motyx, respectively).

And the 'dark-colored tail barb is considered attractive' thing might also apply to Hivewings and Rainwings, Hivewings having dark colors around their wrists, tail tips, and possibly jaws, and Rainwings having a seemingly permanent dark purple/blue/black stain near their jaws, regardless of what color they turn.
