Dragonmaster:The Legend of Garth of Izar

~Chapter 6: Memories, Dreams, and Night Furies~


“It’s ok to cry Garth, my father was lost towards the end the Dragon War. I know what it’s like to lose someone you love.” Saga put her hand on my shoulder as we sat down on a bench, each of us with a purring zippleback head on our laps.

“Why so serious Garth?”, a voice rang out.

“Val?” I asked. Saga went up to Val and I heard them talking about what happened. Thoughts, what few memories I had of him, and faces were rushing were through my head. My dad, Bjorn the Brave as everyone else knew him, taught me how to hold my feelings at bay. But this typhoon of anguish, sorrow, joy, and euphoria was hard to hold back.


“GET HER! SHE’S THE CURSED ONE!” That scream jolted me out of my daze. My emotions were a still a mess but I willed them aside, It was what dad would have wanted me to do, he was called Bjorn the Brave for a reason. A mob wielding pitchforks, hammers, swords and axes charged towards me, Val and Saga. They were lead by a rider on an orange Whispering Death and it was in attack position.

“Ayre, Dance take out that Whisper!” I roared to the Zippleback. Ayre and Dance quickly complied, purple gas seething from Ayre’s mouth turning into a purple fog. Dance lit the purple gas with a shower of sparks blowing up half the street and knocking out the mob. I saw a hole in the ground and knew the Whisper got away, Ayre & Dance gassed the hole.

“What was that?” I asked to Ayre who was continuing pump gas into the hole, I looked at the other head and found Saga passed out, Dance was nuzzling her to try to wake her up. I saw Kaya running over from the other end of the street.

“Are you guys alright? I saw an explosion of purple gas and knew it was Ayre & Dance”, Kaya gasped for air while Saga woke up.

“Hey what was that?”, a voice shouted as I found Tholme and Sif racing towards us. “Me and Sif were getting ready to go play some beach ball and we saw this massive explosion at the market!” Val explained to Tholme, Sif and Kaya what had happened while I looked around trying to find the Whisper, it was gone.

“Why don’t we go to the beach and relax a bit Garth” Saga smiled, “I think we’ve had enough adventure for one day, and after what happened you could use a break.”

“Ayre and Dance seem to like you Saga, Do you mind spending the night with us?” Kaya asked.

“She doesn’t have a home Kaya” I stated.

“Then she can stay with us until she finds one,” Kaya glared at me, then turned over to Saga, “if that’s ok with you…”

“Saga, and I’d love too.” Saga replied.


We got to the beach and took off our boots. The sy was lit up in shades of red orange, and purple with the fading sunlight reflecting off the few clouds in an otherwise clear sky. Kaya teamed up with Ayre & Dance against Tholme, Sif and Val in beach ball while me and Saga took a walk down the beach so I could settle down.


“So, what was your dad like Garth?” Saga inquired as we walked down the sand. Saga hadn’t told Kaya and Val about what happened on Johann’s ship instead she was waiting for me to tell Kaya the news.

“He was a man who stood up for those who he believed were innocent, caught in the crossfire of a situation. Those who normally couldn’t defend themselves. He was also a voice of reason amongst the Council of Chiefs who took anything he said seriously.” I replied, still teary.


We walked along the sand until we reached the Onyx Beach where we sat on a rather soft rock and continued talking.


“My dad was a good man, he always worked hard and supported our family and taught me that happiness is a state of mind you create. He also loved my mom despite what had happend to him as a boy” Saga started, “But everytime I try to think of my mother my memories turn to dreams hoping she were still alive and what it would be like if she was. Then those dreams turn into nightmares where I can save her but I can’t move a muscle, all I can do is watch as she burns while holding my sister, then I wake up”


Saga had finished and she started crying, one could only feel bad for her. having to survive the Dragon War was hard, hundreds of thousands of Izar’s dragons and vikings died during that war and you’d be hard pressed to find any Izarian that didn’t lose a loved one, there were some that lost too much. Even the normally cheery Fortran and Afferson won’t speak of the Dragon War, it pains them too much.


I spoke up as she kept crying, often the best way to stop crying was to focus on something else, so I spoke, “I have one memory of my dad that I always liked, we would go to the cove on Iyer every weekend and fish for food. Toothless, my dad’s night fury, always dove head first into the water to try and catch the fish, he usually got one or two. while me and my dad always sat on the shore until toothless would come out and the cast our lines in. Normally we caught 12 fish every time we were there. Toothless would always sleep upside down and when I drew in the sand he tried to draw with me using a small tree. I always got mad at him when he stepped on my lines. Then on the way back we would do a lap around Izar as the sun set, it was always breathtaking.”


“How did a Night Fury get the name Toothless?” Saga interrupted curious as ever.

“Well when my dad first met Toothless after Toothless hatched he saw the night fury without teeth and said ‘So you’re toothless, I swear night furies have...’ and in that moment Toothless dove for the fish in my dad’s hand and my dad surprised said “...teeth?” the night fury wouldn’t respond to any other name after that. About 3 years before the Dragon War started Toothless took adult form and we were able to ride him.” I told Saga, as the sun set on the beach I noticed the Orange Whispering Death flying off a sea stack and off to the horizon. I continued, "Toothless was lost to Omega during the Dragon War, with the discovery of his old saddle I can only hope he's still alive."


Suddenly the rock beneath us began to move and two eyes popped out beside us, the rock then flung us toward the water, jumped on me, and licked my face. The rock was actually a sand wraith.


“She likes you”, Saga giggled. “Hi there Luna how are you?”

Saga was petting the sand wraith and playing with it, while it searched for fish in her bag. The sand wraith was grey with black spots, perfect for concealment on Onyx Beach I had to wonder how Saga knew this sand wraith.

Soon it got dark and the stars came out. “GARTH!” a voice rang out through the night, and it could only be one. “Get over here with Saga so we can go home before we lose everyone!”, Kaya yelled. We all mounted Ayre & Dance since Tholme, Sif and Val wanted to stay the night too.

“I heard Fortran and Afferson talking about a field trip recently, I wonder if it’s for us?” Sif whispered.

“I don’t know but it’ll be interesting to find out” I whispered to her in reply.

On the Subject of Hackers

please read this link, it helps to identify the different types of hackers. I have hacked computers, and servers in the past (despite not being the best at code) but I never do it for personal gain. Unfortunately the hackers most people refer to on the internet are crackers so they bring a bad light on the hacking community in general. I only learned to hack code because I needed to in order to hack my microwave and other software in my house.


Don't be a Cracker you ruin it for everyone!
