Hey all, I'm back with another fun bird fact!  The Elephant Bird went extinct sometime around the 1600s or earlier.  It was, at the time, the world's largest bird, with a weight of 770-1,100 pounds, and believed to have been more than 9.8 feet tall. The egg weighed around 22 pounds, and the voulme was about 160 times greater than that of a chicken egg.

About Me (in real life):

 

. Name: Emily. I've also been called Ember and Bird Girl as nicknames by people I know.

 

. Gender: Female

 

. State: California

 

. Age: Old enough to know betterXD. A woman never reveals her age. Wait, or is that weight? Yeah, it's weight, but I'm still not telling my age. Let's just say I've been out of high school for a while.

 

Birthday: February 1 (Aquarius power!)

 

. Hair Color: Blonde ( though most of my SoD vikings as well as Raineir my OC have some shade of brown)

 

. Favorite color(s): Purple and green

 

. Favorite Gemstone: Amethyst.  It is my birthstone, after all.  Plus, it's purple/violet!

 

. Favorite movie(s): How to Train Your Dragon, definitely. Also, probably Pirates of the Caribbean (the first one) would be my favorite live action.

 

. Favorite TV shows: Dreamworks Dragons, Top Gear (until the 23rd season), Hawaii 5-0 (not really anymore, it totally went downhill for me the most recent seasons), Modern Family, Lone Star Law, Gilligan's Island (60s show, my dad watched it when he was younger and introduced it to me), Avatar: The Last Airbender

 

 

Favorite food(s): CHOCOLATE, anything Reeses, and my mom's spaghetti

 

. Pets: A cat, two Scottie dogs, and two chickens (both hens)

 

. Favorite animal: Oh, where do I start? I'll do top 5 in no particular order: domestic cat, birds, elephant, sea turtle, domestic dog, and dragons. Oh, that was six. It's hard choosing just five!

 

Hobbies: Birding, birdwatching, exploring the outdoors, HTTYD, and doodling random stuff

 

Superhero alias: Might as well, since I created one for myself back in high school. Peregrine, able to fly at fast speeds, has super strength (raptor talons have a STRONG grip), hawk-like vision, and can talk to animals, mostly birds.

 

Fun facts about me: I have a huge passion for nature, especially birds.  I'm not afraid to touch or hold bugs, insects, amphibians, and reptiles, including snakes.

 

Hogwarts House (according to Pottermore): HUFFLEPUFF!

 

 

About me (in SoD)

 

. I joined SoD on: March 5, 2017.  I created my forum account on January 27, 2018.

 

. Main Viking(s): nakataGreenThumbs and Seerboldraven

 

. Main Dragon(s): nakataGreenThumbs: Lightning the Shockjaw, Skyhopper the Titan Deadly Nadder, and Claw the Sand Wraith. Seerboldraven: Flash the Titan Skrill and Silvermist the Flightmare

 

. Clan: xXHunters mighty clanXx

 

Trophies: 157. So far, all my trophies are from racing, which, for me, took many races. I've gotten a lot better, but I'm in no way the best.

 

. Main Dragon for Racing: My Sand Wraith, Claw. Sand Wraiths may not have Toothless' speed or acceleration rate, or the speed of dragons like the Skrill and Razorwhip, but they have a very good top speed at 8.8, and they have a better acceleration and turn rate. This, in my opinon, makes them one of the best racing dragons.  For my second main viking, Seerboldraven, it's Silvermist the Flightmare. Not quite as good acceleration and turn rate as the Sand Wraith, but the speed is the same (8.8), and the turn rate is still good for a race.

 

Main Dragon for Battle: My Whispering Death, Thorntail. I also use my Changewing, Ghost. For Seerboldraven, it's Whisper the Whispering Death.

 

My code: EZEPJ4, just in case you want to be friends but can't find me in-game.

 

Random Fact I just came up with: If dragons were birds, let's face it: the Night Fury would either be a Peregrine Falcon because both are really fast, or a Barn Owl because both are stealthy and have a hair-raising screech.

 

I am fully against Hacking in SoD!

Here's the story about how my OC viking Raineir met her dragon:

 Berk was not an easy place to live. It was cold, it snowed there most of the year, finding food was not always an easy task, and, yes, it was cold. Oh, and the almost constant dragon raids didn't help matters either. To Berk's vikings, it was either kill or be killed, no other option. Well, except for one viking girl. Much like Berk's heir, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, Raineir Feralsome was considered an "odd one out." Except, instead of wanting to prove herself by killing a dragon like Hiccup, she didn't like to kill. She thought there had to be another way like Valka, Hiccup's 'dead' mother. One day, Raineir was exploring the forest in Raven Point. She liked to explore the land of Berk, learning about its geographical features. Seemingly out of nowhere, a screech of pain rang out. Alarmed, Raineir ran towards the source of the noise. Coming upon a cove (yes, THAT cove), she looked down and saw a small group of what appeared to be hunters, since they were holding spears and bows and arrows. They were surrounding what looked like a Skrill. The poor dragon was in bad shape. There were wounds on its sides, and had trouble fighting the hunters off in her weakened state. Raineir quickly climbed down and made herself known. "Hey!" She shouted, "step away from the Skrill, and none of you will get hurt!" She drew her sword and moved in front of the dragon. The leader stared at her, then laughed. "You?" He said, "a mere girl willing to fight to defend a beast?" She didn't flinch, only glaring more fiercly at him. Making up her mind, she charged at him, sword ready, not to kill, but to possibly knock him and his goonies out. As she was about to do so, a a small bolt of lightning came from... the sword? The lightning hit one of the hunters, instantly knocking him out. Surprised, Raineir looked at her sword in shock, then glared at the leader again. Not wanting to become the next target, he and the rest of his goonies ran away fast. Once they were gone, she turned towards the Skrill, taking medical supplies out of her satchel. The Skrill looked at her in shock, obviously surprised to witness a human protecting a dragon. Raineir put her hand out. The Skrill seemed hesitant, but then she put her snout gently on the girl's outstretched hand. Raineir set to work on cleaning and bandaging the dragon's wounds. She decided to name her dragon Flash. Flash, once fully healed, let Raineir become her rider. Because Raineir had saved Flash, Flash would never stop protecting her from any threat. They're more than just friends; they're family, and will always be loyal to each other, no matter what. This story happened about a month or so before Hiccup discovered Toothless.

 

Here's how Raineir met Scout:

Raineir was having a pretty good day. Hiccup woke up from his coma a few days ago and was getting used to his prosthetic, and the war between the dragons and Berkians was finally over. She went to go get some fish for Flash's dinner, and aside from nearly tripping over Fungus, Mildew's sheep, and listening to Mildew complain about that, not much happened with that. Upon arriving home, she set the basket of fish in front of Flash (Flash stayed with Raineir and sometimes slept in Raineir's room instead of the stables) who promptly started eating happily. Raineir heard a tiny squeak come from somewhere. Confused, she looked around for the location and source of the noise. It sounded like a Terrible Terror. Flash suddenly stopped eating and growled at her fish basket. "Flash, what-," Raineir peered inside and out flew a pink and yellow Terrible Terror with reddish brown horns and back spines. Flash roared in alarm and growled at the intruder. "Whoa! Calm down, girl. It's just a little Terrible Terror," Raineir tried to calm her down. She held her hand to the little dragon, who looked defensive. "Hey, it's ok, little guy." the terror growled at that. "Oh, I'm sorry! You're a girl, then." Happily, the dragon nudged Raineir's hand. "I think I'll name you... Scout! What do you think, do you like that name?" Scout squeaked happily at that. Soon enough, Flash warmed up to the little newcomer, though was still sometimes annoyed by the little dragon's antics and 'singing.' Raineir soon trained Scout to search/scout out objects with hand signals. Her new friend warmed up to Raineir's parents and fellow dragon riders/friends pretty quickly (Snotlout is an on and off case).

 

How Raineir met Claw:

It was a fairly stormy day on Berk, with rain coming down in plentiful amounts, though luckily no thunder or lightning. Raineir was riding Flash on their evening flight, despite the weather. They landed in the cove, when a loud roar was heard. It sounded like a roar of distress. "Deja Vu," Raineir said. This was what happened right before she found Flash. She climbed back on Flash and they flew into the forest, towards the source of the roar. In a large clearing was a purple... Sand Wraith? It was a Sand Wraith! The poor guy looked lost and confused, so naturally Raineir wanted to help. Cautiously and slowly, she walked up to the dragon. The Sand Wraith turned around and noticed her standing a few feet away from him. Alarmed, he got ready to attack if necessary. He growled loudly at her. Flash got into her attacking position as well, ready to defend her sister if needed. Raineir calmed Flash down. "It's ok, don't worry, girl. I got this." Flash calmed down, though she still looked wary. Surprised at the bond between a dragon and a human, the Sand Wraith seemed to calm down a little as well, though still a bit defensive. Raineir then noticed the scars on the dragon's right side, as well as the fact that the left wing looked broken. She slowly held her hand out to him. "Hey there, boy. You must have had a tough time with humans, huh? I can help you with that wing of yours, if you let me. I won't hurt you. I promise." The Sand Wraith seemed hesitant, but then he slowly pressed his snout into Raineir's palm. "Ok, I'm going to need help getting you back. I'm going to let out a call, so don't be startled when I do, ok?" The dragon nodded. Raineir let out a Night Fury call. Soon, Hiccup arrived on Toothless, and together with Raineir and Flash, they created a large sling which the two dragons carried the Sand Wraith to the village in. The dragon was hostile to the other villagers, but Raineir calmed him down. Gothi was able to fix and bandage his wing. Unfortunately, even when fully healed, Claw, as he was now named, would always fly abnormally, though he was forever grateful to the viking girl who helped him.

 

How Raineir met Earthgrinder the Whispering Death:

On the little-known, forested island of Rock Pine (I just came up with that), there were few dragons. One of them was a Titan Whispering Death. He lived in the tunnels he dug deep below the land's surface. His name was Earthgrinder. Earthgrinder's tunnels were dug deep in the forest, and for good reason. Now although very few humans have come to Rock Pine in the past, Earthgrinder was still very cautious. From past experiences, he knew what humans were capable of. He was searching for food one day, when he heard a ruckus going on. It sounded like distressed dragons and... humans! Growling, Earthgrinder readied himself for the intruders. Out of seemingly nowhere, 6 or 7 dragon hunters emerged, looking for more dragons. Having captured the island's other dragons, they turned their attention to Earthgrinder. Wanting a rare, uniquely colored dragon, they charged at him. Earthgrinder fired at them and dodged their weapons, flying away from Rock Pine. He went searching for another island to live, and came upon Dragon's Edge. Not noticing the built structures, Earthgrinder went to the forest and dug tunnels to live in. The next day, he heard... human voices! He shot out the tunnel and prepared to attack those on his island. He saw 7... teenagers, it looked like. And were those dragons protecting them? One of them, girl with dark brown hair and violet eyes (Raineir), with a Skrill next to her, came up to him slowly and cautiously, putting her hand out gently. Earthgrinder wasn't sure what to think. After a few moments, he decided they were good and pressed his snout into her palm. Since meeting these young humans, Earthgrinder soon became used to living with them and their dragons, especially the girl, the first human to show him kindness.

 

 

 

 

About Raineir

 

Full Name: Raineir Feralsome

 

Age: 19-20 (by the time of How to Train Your Dragon 2)

 

Gender: Female

 

Height: Shorter than the average female. 5 ft, 2 in.

 

Hair Color: Dark brown, tied into two semi-long braids in the back. In HTTYD 3, she now has wavy, shoulder length dark brown hair, which now has a purple streak on the right side.

 

Eye Color: Violet

 

Wears: Long sleeve gray dress, dark green leggings, brown fur boots, and two belts, one around the waist and one cross body style in which she keeps her sword. She also wears a necklace with a silver pendant of a Skrill. In HTTYD 3, Raineir now wears a short sleeve gray and purple top, gray leggings, Skrill-inspired skirt, Skrill boots, Skrill arm bracers, and metal shoulder guards. She still wears the waist belt, but instead of just one cross-body belt, she has two that cross over each other. She also still has the Skrill necklace.

 

Dragons: A Skrill named Flash. Flash looks like a regular Skrill, but has noticeable scars on her sides from when she was wounded by dragon hunters, about a month or so before Hiccup met Toothless. Flash, in an act of graditude, accepted Raineir as her rider and life-long partner. Like Hiccup and Toothless, Raineir and Flash proved that friends aren't just limited to the same species. Flash's personality is a little different from the average Skrill, though being one, she can have a bit of an attitude, and like Toothless, can be sarcastic and snarky. Nevertheless, Flash is a very loyal partner to Raineir. She is very affectionate towards her human sister (Raineir) and other humans and dragons she trusts. She and Raineir are very much like siblings. Raineir also later befriends a Terrible Terror she names Scout, who she taught to "scout" out people, dragons, and objects using hand signals. Scout is very friendly and playful, though not afraid to fight if her friends are threatened. Sometime between Mildew's betrayal of Berk and the war between the Berkian, Outcasts, and Berserkers, Raineir found and helped Claw, a Sand Wraith lost and confused in the forests of Berk.

 

Other Dragons: In addition to her three main dragons, Raineir has also trained many others: Earthgrinder a titan Whispering Death, Silvermist a light violet Flightmare, Fireflower a violet Monstrous Nightmare, Lightning a violet and green Shockjaw, Fireball a Gronckle, Bluebird a Deadly Nadder, and many others.

 

Main weapon: Electro, her trusty Gronckle Iron sword. Upon meeting Flash for the first time, Raineir defended her from dragon hunters, and discovered that her sword has the ability to shoot out lightning bolts.

 

Personality: In the first movie (if she were in it), she was much like Hiccup, though not as awkward (sorry, Hiccup). She and Hiccup are still very similar to one another. Raineir is intelligent, sometimes sarcastic, and very witty. Like Astrid, she is fully willing to fiercely defend her friends. She is a very kind and good-hearted person, always ready to help out her friends and family, though not afraid to call them out when they get out of line. She doesn't like to kill unless it's absolutely necessary. Raineir, like Hiccup, likes to consider herself a peacemaker.

 

Unofficial, Official Title: The Lightning Rider

 

Fun fact about Raineir: For an unknown reason, Raineir has an immunity to lightning, and eletrical shocks don't hurt or affect her negatively in any way. She may have been born this way, or maybe she gained it early on in her life, both probably foreshadowing her becoming a Skrill rider.

Coming from a land where dragons have been

hunted to near-extinction, I set out to find one

of these magnificent creatures I have only read

about. 

After much wandering about and even witnessing 

some from a distance, I met a trader who told

stories of islands much further north where 

dragons flew free and riders rose on their backs

into the skies. I managed to convince him of my

genuine non-malicious interest and he agreed to

take me there.

 

 

  This is how I arrived on Berk and, after a trial period, the island chief Hiccup allowed me to 

  join the Dragon Training Academy. There I raised my very own deadly  nadder, Ocean. 

No automatic alt text available.

 

  Since then I have built a base on Sunnystone Island, 

  a tiny volcanic island in the South of the Archipelago 

  and even formed my own clan - 

  "The Sunwing Voyagers".  

  Now I travel far and wide, gathering knowledge, 

  trading a bit here and there and having adventures.  

 

 

 

 

My dragons: my exploration team

 (the dragons who regularly follow me in my exploits)

  Ocean (Deadly Nadder, f) – my first dragon and travel companion.

  I share a special bond with her, as I raised her from an egg and spent many a day 

  with only her for company. She is brave, loyal, curious and very intelligent, 

  often getting bored from inaction. Ocean is very comfortable around humans, 

  but sometimes dislikes sharing my attention with unfamiliar dragons. 

  She did, however, turn out to be surprisingly good with dragonlets. 

  She is a very steady and reliable flyer but does not much enjoy anything competitive.

 

  Viridi (Changewing, f) – the first addition to my exploration team.

  A trader whom I was helping out temporarily had a large and precious

  gem on his ship. I tried to convince him time and time again that he had  

  been duped and the bazaar merchant sold him a dragon egg, but he

  refused to believe me… until it hatched. I offered to take the dragonlet

  off his hands for a good supply of changewing acid once it grew up, and

  the trader was all too happy to get rid of the rather destructive and

  constantly disappearing little creature. As I was the first thing it saw

  when it hatched, the small changewing was eager to stay with me.

  Viridi was my most challenging dragon because it’s very hard to train

  something you can’t see half the time. Being a social creature, she accepted

  Ocean and me as part of her family and joined us on our many adventures.

  She is a quiet, careful, patient and observant dragon, who prefers to avoid

  human habitations and is very helpful in the exploration of the wild.

 

  Moonshine (Razorwhip, f) - Moonshine was picked up by Ocean, probably

  from some shipwreck, as she was completely covered in seaweed. She was 

  still very tiny and Ocean brought her up, becoming a sort of mother figure to her.

  Moonshine is a very happy and energetic dragon: she is in constant movement

  and always wants to play. She lacks any concept of seriousness or caution, so it

  can be quite difficult to have her around on journies, but definitely entertaining.

  At first Ocean was the only one who could get Moonshine under control,

  but after a lot of work, she started listening to me too (most of the time).

 

  Panthera (Death Song, f) - I found Panthera as an adolescent dragon, wary and

  underfed, on the outskirts of Melody Island. After some investigation, I found that 

  this was because her voice was a few tones lower that usual: the other Death Songs 

  drove her away, attacking her at any chance they got, and she could not hunt as her

  song lacked the usual attractive power, forcing her to feed on any fish she was 

  able to catch in the ocean - something Deathsongs just aren't good at. This, however,

  gave me an opportunity to train this magnifiscent dragon, since she had not aquired

  the natural viciousness towards other dragons. Panthera responded very well

  to being fed chicken and boar and had learned to get along with Ocean, Viridi and

  Moonshine (though she largely just ignores them). She turned out to be very lazy,

  always prefering to lay in the sun or in front of the campfire and has been very

  helpful in building and guarding camp during my expeditions. She has a creative

  streak and appears to enjoy singing along with me and seeing her amber made

  into various tools and trinkets.

  

 A list of other dragons I know can be found here.

 

 

My clan: The Sunwing Voyagers

 

We are a clan of peaceful travellers, artists, scholars and traders. Our success is determined by skill and patience. Adventures await!

 

We fly to the edges of the archipelago and far beyond, expanding our horizons and exploring new lands. We are talented, creative and resourceful and we are ready to help any new friends we meet. The Sunwing Voyagers are a peaceful clan and we prefer to settle any conflicts with diplomacy rather than violence. We love dragons and we are always ready to learn new things, using our extensive knowledge of their ways to aid people and dragons to peacefully coexist and help each other.

Woah

Cool! I’ve never heard of that bird, even though my whole life is centred around animals XD It looks awesome; they should make a Pokémon that looks like that! (If there is, please tell me about it!) 

It looks really cool though! Well done on finding out about it and thanks for sharing! :)

I have a younger sister, and a few pets: a funny tuxedo cat, 4 adorable goldfishies, a fluffy budgie, and a beautiful Dachshund.  I’m pretty optimistic and I grew up watching HTTYD :)

 

Ash and Skyfire's story

Skyfire first met Ash after she attacked a Triple Stryke for her, getting with her wing broken in the process. It was night, so Skyfire had quite a surprise after she heard her low bellow in the darkness. When she lit her torch, heart still beating from the event, Ash was there, untamed and unknown. The Sand Wraith came as an exotic species for Berk, and during the time of dragon hunting, every Viking had to kill a dragon to prove themselves worthy of honour and respect. However the dragon breed seemed impure. Night Fury-like. The Black Night Wraith would definitely place the teenager on a higher status. However, in the gentle orange light, the girl looked at the hybrid dragon, and saw a young creature trying to survive. She could relate. After all, she had just saved her from certain death. Within a second, the dagger tore through the rope. The dragon stood up and roared in pain. She then fell back in agony. 

Skyfire then ran over to get some ropes from her bag, and used her axe to cut down some low-hanging branches. Out of them she made a frame, and placed them on the dragon's wing. Ash did not hesitate. It seemed as if she did have some human contact in the past, but still kept her unbroken spirit with pride. 

Over the weeks, her flight improved. Skyfire documented the progress in pages for the Book of Dragons, but wrote in a manner that suggested that these magnificent creatures are just misunderstood. Furthermore, her pages contributed to the changed Book of Dragons, after the infamous event of the Chief's Son and his Night Fury defeating the Red Death. Afterwards, Skyfire began new studies of dragons, of their real nature, and brought Ash to Berk. The two have been inseparable ever since, and were grateful for the changes Berk went through in their new era, with dragons protecting and safeguarding the citizens. And the citizens safeguarding them.

 

 

ULTRA the Razorwhip ~

Ultra is no ordinary razorwhip. Due to her black scales, she has adapted completely to living in the high, mysterious mountains. She is called Berk's top stealth dragon during night searches. Even though Ultra is very dark and secretive, she can be as playful as a hatchling when at home. 

As an actual hatchling, Ultra was raised by Speed Stingers who found her in a forest after her mother’s pack of female razorwhips fought with two cannibalistic males seeking the newborns. She was raised to think she was merely a Speed Stinger with useless wings, until an unexpected event led her away from her grounded siblings.

"Do NOT let them escape!" *lets dragons escape*

Yeah, no problem! There totally should be a pokemon based on it, that would be cool!
