A list of my dragons and their backstories (to avoid signature clutter)

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.

The Gronckcicle family

 

 Mountain (Gronckle, f) - a wild dragon from berk, which I trained to help  

 me with some tasks like iron and glass production or building (gronckle

 lava makes great cement). She mostly does her own thing, but enjoys

 living in my boulder class stable. She is also surprisingly fast for her species.

 

 IceCube (Groncicle, m) - I met him as an adolescent dragon on Ice Storm

Island and managed to gain his trust by feeding him and helping him  

 rebuild his nest after a bad storm. He was really helpful during my

 exploration of this freezing land, especially when the temperatures got too

 low for poor Ocean (she much prefers warm weather). He followed me

 back to Berk and stayed after meeting Mountain. He is a strong, brave

 dragon, quite territorial and protective of his family. 

 

 RockMoss (Gronckle - part groncicle? - I think this might be a new species, m) -

 he is Mountains' and IceCubes' dragonlet. He is a very calm and likes nothing more

 than lying in under the shady canopy of a tree.

 

 RoseCrystal (another Gronckcicle hybrid, f) - she is Mountains' and IceCubes'

 second dragonlet. She, unlike her brother, is very active and playful and loves shiny 

 icicles and swimming in the freezing ocean.

The Sunnystone Island wild dragon reserve

  There a many stables carved on this island and close lying islets for wild dragons

  who are in need of a place to rest. Here I, along with the other villagers, help

  wounded dragons, learn the secrets of multiple dragon species, and train dragons

  to live side by side with humans, teaching them things such as not to fire at houses

  or scare farm animals and how to spot and avoid dragon traps. Some dragons

  move on and some, to my great excitement, have chosen to stay permanently.

 

  Thistle (Whispering death, f) - she was probably chased off from her home.

  Despite that, she is a rather affectionate dragon.

  Sprite (Shockjaw, m) – he was probably one of the many new shockjaws brought

  to Berk, who didn’t find an owner – seems unafraid of people.

  Sky (Stormcutter, f) - she stayed on the island after being raised here by her mother.

  Interestingly, she and Sprite have become good friends and can be often seen flying together.

  Lightclaw (Speed stinger, f) - she is part of the speed stinger pack on Ice Storm island.

  She hatched outside of hatching season and had a bit of a limp, so had trouble keeping

  up with her pack. She also appears to have very weak venom compared with other

  speed stingers. She was often left alone and, since I gained the packs' trust, I decided

  to take her in untill she grew stonger. She has now returned to her pack, but she still

  likes to join me on my travels occasionally. She especially likes flying on Oceans back.

  Scrap Metal (Armourwing, m) - he is a very old wise dragon. He enjoys spending his days

  sunning on the warm cliff ledges of Sunnystone Island and playing with baby dragons. 

  I'm not sure why he has not gone to Vanaheim, but maybe armourwings don't go there. 

  He can be quite handy at times as a mobile store of metal.

  Bonfire (Monstrous Nightmare, m) - his egg was found somewhere by Scrap Metal and

  he was brought up by the old dragon. Bonfire is very easygoing and not quite what you'd

  expect a nightmare to be.
