*Snowflake's Limited Hopeless Deathtrails!*
I have created a new dragon with the help of Chameishida's awesome Dragon Generator! Also special thanks to Huntress of Storms for coming up with the name.
Funny and cool names this dragon species could have had: Twilight Wraith, Goldenfrill Starwing, Shiningfrill Daggertail, Goldtusk, Signalfrill, Frozen Flare, Whiskered Whiptail, Ruthless Thicktusk, and Billowing Goldspine
Without further ado introducing the....
The Hopeless Deathtrail
Fire Type: Billowing Icy Smoke (Hoarfrost)
Features: Bright colorful but dark body, two tusks in the front, whiskers, frills on side of head, head appendages, and large fins on back
Abilities: Tracking, signaling, and keeping warm
Size: 30 feet tall
Ability to Train Level: Expert Trainers Only
Time of day: Daytime only
Behavior Traits: Ruthless and cunning doesn't camoflague due to the fact that it tries to be intimidating and scare everything off. This is a dragon that isn't scared to fight and usually starts a fight with anything. It was once reported that the Hopeless Deathtrail had fought its own reflection in the water! They hunt in packs like wolves and use their colorful frills to signal the pack to close in. Different colors mean different things like: red means attack, blue means stand down, green means take off, and purple means use Hoarfrost.
Fighting style: When on land they will run and charge at opponents with their tusks and razor sharp wing claws. Their tails also can swing around in a whip-like manner stunning their opponents. Also their fire type they use to cause confusion and to paralyze them with the iciness of the smoke.
Hatchlings: Usually are born without their mother and stay partially in their eggs until they reach the Shortwing age when they grow out the rest of their fins and are able to protect themselves more effectively. They use the eggs as a source of nutrients and protection against the elements. Their eggs can be many colors even mimicking other dragon eggs as another defense mechanism. They are less aggressive than the adults and waddle around like ducks hauling their shells wherever they go.
Flaws: They can't see in the dark like other dragons but they can use their scales like flashlights or their whiskers to help see but this makes them an easier target at night. They are also easily distracted and forgetful.

hoarfrost, also known as horror, lived on outcast island. the outcasts were always afraid of him, always looking over their shoulder to see if he lurked in the shadows. when the outcasts were again attacked by this elusive dragon, they finally begged berk to rid them of the beast. pearl garmadon, a dragon trainer in training, was sent to rid the outcasts of what they called, the chilling horror. when pearl found him though, she found he was not visous or evil, but depressed and lonley. his mate had long ago been killed by the outcasts, and ever since then, he has been terrorizing them for what they had done. pearl, after earning his trust (which was NOT easy to do) was trained and brought back to the school where he now lives with Jewels, Sparky, and the rest of pearls adopted dragon family. has a secret crush on Jewels, pearls night fury.

Backstory: "Yeah Thunderclap, thanks for letting me go into blizzard territory with an ice dragon." Fireren grumbled as she trecked through the snow with a Shivertooth, Frostdagger, at her side. Frostdagger snorted as if laughing and breathed a Snow blast in front of Fireren, some of the sleet hit her. In retaliation Fireren punched the Shivertooth's shoulder, "Thanks pal, that helps a lot." As she hiked through the deep snow wished they could fly and get to the cave faster, but even below the forest of towering fir and pine snow managed to fall thickly. Fireren had to watch out for clumps falling off of branches. She could only imagine what flying would be like at a reasonable altitude.
As if mocking her slow pace Frostdagger bounded ahead through the Snow, scattering powder in his wake, looking back micheviously at Fireren when he stopped to wait for her. Fireren scowled at the Dragon as she caught up, but she smirked only faming annoyance. She reached into her satchel and grabbed some dragon nip and tossed it to him, he joyfully snapped it out of the air. "Watch it Frosty." She smiled, but her smile faded when she noticed some tracks in the Snow, facing east from where they were heading. Fireren jogged over to the tracks and knelt down beside them, pulling out her field copy of the Book of Dragons from her satchel. Trotting over to her, Frostdagger sniffed the tracks, and gave a soft growl. Fireren flipped through to the section on markes, scratches, and footprints. "Lets see hmm..." She scanned the tracks "Not fourfooted or snakelike, wyvern probably, but not a wing walker, not a Nadder either..." She searched a bit more, finally finding its match. "Ah ha, here we go, the Hopeless Deathtrail. Highly aggressive, melee fighters, difficult to train."
She grinned at Frostdagger. "I'd like to meet one. How bout' you?" Frostdagger snorted and violently shook his head, Fireren laughed. "Oh come on, our mission is to document the dragons here. Not every day you find a dragon like this." The Shivertooth followed reluctantly as Fireren began following the tracks. They followed them for quite a while, deeper into the forest. They took a turn towards the north towards the mountains. Finally, the tracks abruptly halted in a clear area with less trees "Dang, it must have flown off." She stomped the ground as she noticed darkness settling, "and we haven't even reached the cave." She muttered in concern. Hurriedly, she Frostdagger collected firewood and Fireren set up camp and started a fire. She tossed Frostdagger a few fish from her pack, eating some of her rations and treating herself to some of the mead.
Finally she retired to her tent, but just as she was closing her eyes, a mighty roar resounded through the forest, and the sounds of Dragons growling and fighting boomed outside. Fireren scrambled out of her tent and saw by the moonlight the form of Frostdagger, standing off to a huge dragon with a glowing belly, a Hopeless Deathtrail. The dragon roared and changed at her Shivertooth with its tusks, Frostdagger leaped out of the way and toar into the attacker with his claws, making lightning fast strikes with his wings and tail. The Deathtrail roared in fury and whipped it's tail around with tremendous strength, hurling Frostdagger against a tree. Is leveled its head and prepared to charge at Frostdagger and gore him with its tusks, "No!" Fireren yelled, she sprinted in front of Frostdagger as the Deathtrail began to change. It roared and sustained its devastating run, sprinting straight towards her. Fireren closed her eyes as it closed in.
Just before she was impailed by its tusks the dragon stopped, inches from her face. Fireren opened her eyes and saw the Deathtrail staring confused from her to Frostdagger, who rose to this feet and got behind Fireren, snarling at the Deathtrail. Fireren held up her hand to quiet the Shivertooth as she reached into her satchel and offered the Deathtrail some dragon nip. Now it looked really confused, it snorted, blowing the dragon nip out of her hand before it turned tail and sprinted into the forest. Fireren turned to the Shivertooth anxiously, "Frost, you okay?" Frostdagger shook himself, he was fine, only a moderate gash from the Deathtrail's tail, but it could have easily been much worse.
She looked after where the Deathtrail had run, and saw drops of blood along its trail, Frostdagger had wounded it. She grabbed her spear which was sitting against a tree and jogged along its trail, she turned to and called to Frostdagger, "You coming?" Frostdagger rumbled in exasperation and trotted after her. They followed the trail until they came to a cave, lit inside by a light green glow. "Must be it's nest." Fireren muttered, grabbing her jar of yarrow power from her bag. The Deathtrail stuck its head out out if the cave and growled at them. Fireren could make out bleeding gashes on its neck and body.
She walked slowly towards the Deathtrail, holding out a bunch of Dragon nip towards it. It growled and walked cautiously towards her. Grasping her jar with her other hand, she popped the lid off with her thumb and walked towards the Deathtrail's wounded side, planning to apply the powder to stop the bleeding. As she walked closer the Deathtrail roared aggressively and whipped it's tail up, ready to strike. Thinking fast, Fireren jerked the jar causing the powder to fly through the air spread across the wounded side of the dragon. The Deathtrail roared furiously and as Fireren sprinted towards Frostdagger, it slammed its tail in the ground where she had been. She dove behind a tree just before the Deathtrail let out a billowing stream of hoarfrost at her. She tucked her arms to her sides behind the tree as the frost coated the front bark like icy spears. She jumped out from behind the tree and Frostdagger jumped in front of her, growling defensively. The Deathtrail roared at both of them and charged another shot.
But then it turned and looked at its wounded side, the yarrow powder had stopped the bleeding. It looked at Fireren, who walked through the snow towards the Deathtrail slowly, again offering it dragon nip with one hand, her other outstretched. Frostdagger padded towards the Deathtrail and rumbled amicably. Fireren stopped just in front of the dragon and offered it a hand, it snorted, and bypassed her hand giving her a hard nuzzle, knocking her back a bit and blowing the Dragon nip out of her hand. She laughed and scratched its chin, and the Deathtrail rumbled contentedly. "Well Frost," Fireren said, "I think we found you an ice buddy."

Yennefer groaned as she threw her map on the ground.
“ ‘C’mon Yen, go look for the pack of Hopeless Deathtrails, it will be fun, just you, Kelpie and the good old mother nature, a little adventuring never hurts, right?’” Yen said with a mockingly voice. That’s what the school’s Headmaster had told her two days ago.
“Pft, nonsense, I can’t believe I agreed to this” She said and crossed her arms.
Kelpie, her Flightmare, made a laughter like noise and returned to her bucket of algae.
“You too, Kelpie? Great I’m cold, I’m hungry and my own dragon mocks me” She said and threw her arm in the air in defeat.
“You know, Kelpie, I think we should go home, there’s nothing on this censored island, we’ve been here for 2 days, Kelpie, 2 day, and what have we found about the Deathtrails?...Nothing, one big nothing!” Yen said angrily.
The dragon seemed to understand that her rider was having a tough time and she rested her head on Yen’s lap, purring like a kitty.
Yen sighed and started petting Kelpie’s head.
“What should we do girl? I don’t want to spend another half an hour looking for something that will never show up …and on the other hand I really want to see one of those magnificent beasts”
Kelpie stood up and went to Yen’s satchel and started sniffing inside it as if she was looking for something specific, after about a half a minute she pulled out the book of dragons and handed it to Yen.
“Alright then let’s see what we actually do know about these dragons” Yen said as she opened the book of dragons and started searching for the right page.
“Alright, here it is, so, we know that these dragons are pack hunters, their features, and that they are highly aggressive, so we need to be extra careful” She said as she handed the book back to her Flightmare.
“Now let’s get some food girl, we’ll look for them later” Yen said as she stood up, mounted Kelpie and flew towards the camp she had built next to the river.
From up in the air the island actually seemed very beautiful it was all covered in snow, and without a snow storm going on it was strangely calm and peaceful.
Soon Kelpie landed and Yen hopped of the saddle and went to check on the fish traps she had putted around the shallow part of the river. Not that she didn’t bought fish with herself, but if she was going to tame and study a Deathtrail she could have used some of the local fish, that the dragon is usually hunting. The island itself was a whole new place for her it was a bit like Ice Storm Island, but with much more trees and a lack of caves. The only ones she had spotted for now were one high up in the mountain and one on the coast, one of the caves was way too small for a Deathtrail to live in, but the other one seemed perfect for a pack den, she still wondered why there were no dragons in it at all.
After checking up on the traps and storing all fishes in her basket with the other fish, Yen sat next to the campfire and started drawing random swirls in the dirt, it helped her think better and relaxed her at the same time. Just then a loud roar interrupted her thoughts and alarmed Kelpie.
“C’mon girl, this might be our only chance of finding a Deathtrail” Yen said and hopped on Kelpie’s back. They flew in the direction the roar had come from. When they landed Yen saw a huge grey dragon all covered in scars fighting a typhoomerang, the typhoomerang was much bigger than the grey dragon, but the dragon was not backing up, it was actually intimidating the typhoomerang. The dragon was a deep shade of grey, expect its belly and spine they were a bright shade of red …wait a minute this description matched the one in the book of dragons perfectly. Yen smiled, happy that she finally had found the dragons she was looking for. The Hopeless Deathtrail roared again, its mighty roar shaking the ground. It stopped shooting at the dragon with its hoarfrost breath and landed. With a final roar it charged at the typhoomerang and hit him in the left leg. The typhoomerang roared in pain and flew off. Yennefer was fascinated by the Deathtrail’s fighting skills. But why was it alone. It should have been fighting with its pack. That’s when Yen noticed all the dragon hunter’s arrows on the ground. Then it hit her. That’s why she couldn't’t find the pack of the Hopeless Deathtrails, all of them were captured, expect the one that was fighting with the typhoomerang, she moved a bit to the left and hid behind one big rock. Yen gasped at put a hand over her mouth. Her eyes filled with sadness and horror. There were a few dragon hunter corpses laying on the ground all of them teared apart, it was hard to even recognize them as human. Then next to them were two Deathtrail corpses. The grey one must have done this to them. No creature would have done this in battle. It massacred them after the battle. The grey dragon, must have been to only one to survive. Seeing the fierce dragon in actin Yen figured out that the other dragons must have been knocked out with dragon root. They would have fought to the death otherwise.
“Kelpie we need to get out of here” Yen whispered and started walking backwards.
Walking back, she stepped on one of the arrows and it broke. The Deathtrail turned its head in her direction. She shivered, her whole body was like it was paralyzed by Flightmare mist.
The dragon gritted its teeth and roared at her.
Yen mounted Kelpie and they flew off, the dragon chasing closely behind them.
The dragon was fast, but Kelpie was smaller and more maneuverable, she kept dodging its fire blasts.
“We can’t keep this up forever” Yen said and started thinking of a plan.
“The cave!” She yelled after a few seconds and started flying towards one of the caves she found yesterday. The one that was way too small for the Deathtrail to fit in.
The entrance was blocked with two pine trees. They must have fallen, through the snow storm yesterday. Yen sighed, knowing she had no other choice, but to crash in the cave. It was risky, but it was either that, or the dragon chasing them.
“I have a plan …and you’re not going to like it” Yen said to her dragon.
Kelpie gave her a questioning look.
“We have to crash into the trees to enter the cave”
Kelpie growled in disapproval.
“Look it’s either this…”She said pointing to the cave.
“…or that” She said this time pointing to the Deathtrail.
Kelpie rolled her eyes and dived for the cave. Deathtrail followed.
Yen braced herself for the impact. They crashed through the trees and landed roughly in the cave. The Hopeless Deathtrail however was too big to enter, it growled in frustration and after a few tries to enter the cave, it gave up and flew off.
“We did it!” Yen said and tried to stand up. Then she cried in pain. Kelpie made a worried noise and ran over to her rider, examining her leg. It had a large cut, and was bleeding.
“Oh, don’t worry, girl, it’s just a small wound” Yen said and took out the emergency kit from her satchel.
She took out the bandage and started wrapping it around the wound. When she was done, she tried to stand up again. This time she made it, but it was still hard for her to put all her weight on it. Kelpie helped her and started nuzzling her snout, in Yen’s hand.
“Thanks, girl. Now let head back to the camp” She said as they started walking towards the exit.
After a short ride they were already in camp. Yen sat next to the fire and took out the book of dragons.
“Alright, except the wound on my leg, I think toady was a successes. Humph, what do you think, Kelpie?” Yen asked.
Kelpie nodded and laid next to her rider.
“Alright let’s sum up what we learned today. First, they must be very territorial, that’s why we didn’t saw any other dragon specie, expect the typhoomerang today. Second, I think I found out why the cave, that was a perfect pack den, was empty. It wasn’t only the hunters, did you saw how hard it was for the dragon to spot us in the cave, it had a perfect view from the entrance, but it wasn’t acting like if it knew where we were, it kept scanning the area. So I think it doesn’t have night vision.” Yen said.
“And according to the book, this one must be a male” She added.
The next day the dragon landed on the other side of the river. It didn’t seemed to mind the rider and dragon’s presence. Yen examine d it more carefully this time, last time she couldn't’t get a good look. This time she noticed that the dragon’s left leg was slightly bleeding. It must have got hut in the fight with the other dragon yesterday. She slowly started walking towards it. The dragon noticed this and started growling, this time it sounded a bit more like a warning.
“Hey, it’s ok, I just want to help you” Yen said quietly, it wasn’t like she had no reason to be afraid of the Deathtrail. She took a step back and the dragon stopped growling.
She tossed him a fish and the dragon gave her a questioning look, before it ate it.
She kept feeding it fish every day, and after a week the dragon was finally getting used to it. He didn’t growl anymore, well sure if Yen got to close it wound start growling quietly, but that was it. It never attacked her.
“You know Kelpie, we should have been back in Berk, the Headmaster must be worried, I want you to go to Berk and give him this, and it’s a letter telling him of why we were gone”
Kelpie nodded and nudged her rider.
“No, you are going alone, I’ll stay here” Yen said.
Kelpie shock her head and grunted.
“I’ll be fine, and after you deliver the letter you’ll come back here”
Kelpie nuzzled her snout in Yen’s hand.
“I know, I’ll miss you too” Yen said and hugged her dragon.
Kelpie slowly pulled back. After a last glance at her rider she flew up towards Berk.
Yen started walking toward the Deathtrail. His leg was healing, but without any medical attention it could have got infected. She knew she needed a way to get close enough, and take care of the wound.
She sighed as she grabbed the basket with fish and continued on her way to the Deathtrail.
When he noticed her coming he stood up from his seeping position and sat down.
“Hey, boy, look what I have here for you” Yen said and pushed the basket towards the dragon.
The dragon gladly took the basket in its gasp and started eating. Yen smiled and started walking around it until she was right next to his leg.
She slowly started walking closer to him. The dragon gave her a strange look, but instead of growling it continued with its breakfast. Seeing this as the perfect opportunity to take care of the wound. She took a deep breath and touched his wounded leg gently. The dragon’s body tensed a bit, but soon relaxed into the touch.
“That’s it, good boy, now just let me take care of this for you” Yen smiled and took out her medic kit.
After she was done she gave the dragon one last pet and started walking away. However before she could get far enough, she felt a cold breath against the back of her neck. When she turned around she saw the Deathtrail. Its eyes were not angry, they were relaxed and kind. She gently petted its snout and felt the dragon purr against it.
“You’re not that scary after all, huh?” She asked as she continued to pet the dragon’s head.
“You need a name you know?”
“How ‘bout … Cahir? It means warrior”
The dragon nodded its head and roared in agreement.

I was hunting one morning with my dragon Spike (Boneknapper) when out of no where we heard a loud roar
"Spike did you hear that?" I asked Spike. Spike looked to the left where the roar had came from "Let's go see" I said as i came out of my hiding spot, then put my bow on my back then mounted on Spike "Let's not fly, ok" I said as Spike grunted in agreement then he started walking deep in to the woods, the deeper we went the darker and creepy it got "We'll be fine. Its not like something is going to pop out of no where....." I said but i was cut short when bats came flying from a tree *Scream* as i try to get them off of me thanks to Spike running away we were able to escape the bats "Those bats are not so friendy" I said then once again we heard the roar and this time it was close, Spike stopped and started to back up "Come on Spike we got this far" I said as i slide off of him and walked to where the roar was.
We came into a clearing and at first we didn't see anything but then this unknown dragon came into the clearing running then came to a quick stop, when i look his leg was snagged by a Dragons Hunter trap "Poor dragon" I muttered as i slowly walk out into the clearing. The dragon looked at me and growled furiously at me as he showed his teeth "Easy boy, easy" I said as i walk closer then the dragon charged me "SPIKE!" I screamed as i start running, Spike came to my rescue and charged at the dragon and slammed the dragon on its side making the dragon fall on its side... Spike give a loud roar at the dragons "STOP!" I yelled at Spike to stop "Your going to make him more afraid and if you do that the more he will be agresstive" I exclaimed to Spike then Spike took one more look and backed off. I walked to the dragon slowly Spike was there with me just in case, i made my way to the dragons leg and took out my knife *Roar* The dragon stood up quickly and swiped at me, lucky i ducked and ran behind Spike.
I remember i had a fish in my bag so i climbed Spike and got my bag and took out the fish then i slide back down
I walked slowly to the dragon once again "Easy, easy... here's a fishy" I said as i drop the fish in front of it
The dragon bent forward slowly sniffed it then ate it, i got three more fish from my bag and dropped it in front of it this slowly made my way to his left leg... i took out my knive and i started slowly cutting the trap. After a few seconds the trap snapped *Snapped Sound* The looked at his leg then at me "Ok, easy now... your free" I said nervously then the dragon turns and faces me "Um Spike?" I called but i realize now that he knew something at that moment. The dragon bents down his head, looking at me with his eyes, i picked up my hand and slowly
(To Be Continued) Sorry i stopped, i got tired. Hope its enough if not then i'll continue it tomorrow :)
