Here are some screenshots I've taken of a few of my dragons. I'll probably add more at some point, these are just the ones I have right now.

This was actually my first one that I ever took. Zeke is on the lookout for any enemy ships.


This one is also in my sig. I just happen to really like it cuz he looks like he's about to dive bomb the heck out of someone/thing XD.

(Quite a few of these are in mid-dive pics)

Me: "Huh. We can take a short-cut through here."

Ginrei: *shakes her head as if to toss something off* "Rowrrrr"

Me: "Easy, girl. What's wrong?"

Me: *glances over shoulder with a look of shock* Wait; what in the--?! Did we just go through a mountain side?!?"



Probably should have moved the camera a tad more to the right but oh well. At least I got the cursor out of the way this time.


Ororo acting as a sentry at The Edge.

(In case any of you are curious, I named her Ororo because that is Storm's real name from X-Men. Her appearance is also based off Storm.)

This isn't actually the shot I was trying to get but she dove too fast and I couldn't see where we were going so this is the best I could get. ^^;


Dear SoD Team..., please...




.....Thank you. m(_ _)m

I was bored so...

Here's some more screenies ^^

^This is Denali at Impossible Island. See any resemblence? XP^

^Katana preparing to charge the warship.^

^Revai is patrolling the forest for Titans.^

I wanted to name him Levi after my favorite character on Attack on Titan but it wouldn't let me X[

Lightning checking the Ship Graveyard to make sure no hunters are lurking about. Watch it; he may be a Titanwing, but he's still mighty young - can't control his lightning too well just yet. ;p

Neara: "GRROAAARRR" ("What are YOU looking at?!")

I think Hookfang got too close or something... Neara does NOT like him... like at all...

Just chilling by the mountain stream at the Training Grounds with Scorpio. ^^

I was so happy that I was allowed to name him Scorpio ^^ Had my heart set on it since the first time I saw a pic of a Triple Stryke.

Stella keeping watch at the School while staying nice and Zen. ;)

Stella wasn't allowed so her name is actually StellaAntares after the brightest star in the Scorpio constellation (Antares) often nicknamed the "Heart of the Scorpion." I thought it was befitting.

Shinigami inspecting the camera. Just look at that ear to ear smile. Isn't he just precious? XD

Oh how I love Flying in Autumn!

Nice Screenshots! Just one thing you night want to know is, with dragon names it's not who gets to it first, it's if the name is allowed.
With Viking names, you have to have a unique name, and it has to be allowed.

With dragon names it just has to be allowed. For example, my friend xXSadieKaneXx has a Triple Stryke (I believe) named xXNovaXx. (The game doesn't allow the name "Nova") And later I fell in love with the Marvel superhero Nova and named my Stormcutter xXNovaXx as well. (Stormcutter because of Nova's helmet. Plus, Nova can fly, and the Stormcutter has always seemed to be a much more airborne dragon than others.)


I'm Avalon Azouf, but please call me Ava! My dragon, Sam, and I are just your everyday troublemakers who managed to get themselves kicked out of the School of Dragons for reasons darker then I'd prefer to say here. 

No biggie, right...?

Huh... did not know that...

Oh... Good to know... don't get why the names Levi, Nova, Zero (which is the name I wanted to give to Zeke) and Stella wouldn't be allowed... really doesn't make sense to be but thanks for letting me know that. In Revai's case I was trying to make it like the way the name Levi is spelled in Japanese but I made a boo-boo. It should be Rivai with an i instead of an e but oh well.

Well, I don't get why Nova isn't allowed, but Levi is an actual name, and they don't want kids giving out their real names. Same with Zero. Naming your dragons numbers (same thing in chat btw) could be used to tell people your address or phone number, and they don't want that.

Dragon Profiles

These are for my OC dragons (I have quite a few), starting with...

Neara, my 1st dragon

Picture taken @ Titan Island

Don't be fooled by her wild appearance. Neara is what one might call... polished. She has a rather strong personality and isn't shy about expressing her feelings towards those she dislikes, dragons and humans alike. Her least favorite of either being Hookfang. He made a very negative first impression on her before she was a titanwing, which resulted in him being grounded for a week due to a wing injury. As fierce as she is proper, Neara is a dragon you do not want to cross unless you want an excuse to get some new clothes because the ones you were wearing were singed beyond repair. In spite of all this, if she recognizes you as a friend, she will defend you to her last breath. Though the number of dragon's Shamira has tamed/raised has grown, Neara remains one of her most trustworthy and reliable dragons.

Defining traits: somewhat haughty, dedicated, fierce, wise

Zeke, Shamira's Go-To Dragon

Picture taken @ Hobblegrunt Island

While normally not considered an especially fast dragon, the Sand Wraith is by no means a slow-poke and with its ability to use camoflage, it makes the ideal recon dragon. Shamira resuced Zeke as an egg while sabotaging a dragon hunter operation. She had inteneded to return him to his parents but the egg hatched before she could. She decided to raise the dragon and train him herself. His similar physique to the Night Fury and unique abilities would make a very valuable addition to her team. While fun loving as a youngster, Zeke really grew into his own as an adult. He took his training extremely seriously and enjoyed the thrill of chasing after anything that could outpace him, but that's not to say he was impatient. Shamira had made certain that Zeke was able to spend time with other Sand Wraiths so that his natural skills would develop properly. Zeke is arguably one of Shamira's most well trained dragons, faster and more agile than most of his own kind, at times he can be a bit of a show off, but he isn't arrogant. He takes himself and his training very seriously and he and Shamira have been known to overpower Hiccup and Toothless (only after he became a titanwing) thanks to their respective tough training regimens. His behavior often seems more like that of a strike class dragon than his fellow tidal class dragons.

Definig traits: competitive, loyal, proud, cunning, serious

Ororo, the "Gatekeeper"

Picture taken @ Hobblegrunt Island

Ororo was given to Shamira as a gift from Valka because she was impressed with the former's abilities to understand and gain the trust of various dragons. A regular "workhorse" er... work-dragon, Ororo is exceptionally hard working. She stands guard whenever Shamira is either resting or is absent from the island where most of her dragons live. Ororo takes full advantage of her wide field of vision and ability to turn her head almost 360° to make sure no enemies sneak up on her... flock? pack? Well, whatever word  you use to describe a group of dragons, Ororo is very protective of the people and dragons she considers to be part of hers. She is very intelligent and is the only dragon other than Zeke and Neara that is able to lead Shamira's dragons.

Defining Traits: protective, quick-witted, intelligent, occasionally bossy, hard working

Ginrei, the "Wolf"

Picture taken @ Icestorm Island

Back in her homeland, Shamira and her people have lived alongside wolves for centuries and she herself has two lupine companions - Tomochi and his younger sister Ginrei. When this Woolly Howl hatched, her appearance bore a strong resemblance to the latter of the two, so Shamira decided to give her the same name as her beloved companion. Ginrei's personality is similarly wolf-like. She has a playful streak and loves to "play-hunt," much to the chagrin of the animals on the island that she pretends to be hunting. However, Ginrei knows when play time is over and it's time to be serious. A strike class dragon to her core, she is one fearsome dragon when the situation calls for it and is equally as cunning as a wolf. Even without Shamira's commands to guide her, Ginrei is able to find ways to evade and effectively attack any enemy that comes against those she sees as being members of her "pack." Despite her playfullness being an incompatible trait to him, she and Zeke get along very well and often spar with and race each other. Ginrei is also very good at using her pattern to her advantage like camoflage when she is on the hunt.

Defining traits: playful, clever, protective, equally gentle and fierce

Moirana, the Enigma

Picture taken @ Berk

Moirana's personality is truly unique and enigmatic. She marches to the beat of her own drum. The only time she doesn't is when Shamira gives her a comand. This is because as a hatchling Shamira saved Moirana from some frightened villagers when she and her mother had gotten too close to their homes (not Berk). Moirana has felt that she owes Shamira her life since then but, other than Shamira, Moirana very seldom lets any other humans get close to her, partly because her mother did not survive the injuries she sustained while protection Moirana. Not the most social dragon of the bunch, the two dragons Moirana gets along with best are Neara and Ororo. Shamira sometimes collects and uses Moirana's mist to paralyze dragon hunters when she's rescuing dragons and sabotaging their operations.

Defining traits: quiet, fearless, non-social, fiercely loyal to a select few

Dragon Profiles cont.


@ Ship Graveyard

Another dragon Shamira rescued as an egg from dragon hunters, Katana was named after the type of swords that Shamira prefers. After she first saw the blades, she was awe-struck by their exquisite design and named Katana after the beautiful swords. Katanan's personality is a reflection of Shamira's - tough, loyal and witty. Normally Katana is fairly "chill" and mild-mannered, but she can be temperamental at times. Brave and even a little reckless, Katana isn't one to shy away from a fight when one comes calling, but she never starts one. When it comes to her "relationship" with Revai, she is not at all afraid to put him in his place when he steps out of bounds. Despite this, she can often be seen acting what one might call "bashful" around him. The two of them work well together as a team and are to be feared if you come against them or, heaven forbid, try to come between them.

Defining traits: temperamental, brave, intelligent, likes to tease but knows when to be serious


@ Hobblegrunt Island

Foget what I said about Katana being temperamental, Revai is the king of it. His behavior can switch from hot to cold in the blink of an eye. He's not at all afraid to show "tough love" to anyone, especially those who have earned some respect. Loyal and stubborn to a fault, if you've earned this extremely cautious dragon's trust and respect, short of a major betrayal on your part, you will have it forever. Even more serious than Zeke or Ororo, Revai has a very "no nonsense" personality, at least on the surface. Similar to his mate, he is one to mess with his comrades' heads for the heck of it, especially the really gullible ones. You probably won't ever hear him "laugh" but if you know him well, you can just tell when he's getting a kick out of something. In terms of both their personality and combat style, Revai and Katana mesh really well together. Not only that but, perhaps because he was raised by human hand from birth, Revai doesn't act the way a typical male Razorwhip does around his offspring. Quite the opposite in fact - he's just as protective of them as a mother Razorwhip.

Defining traits: stubborn, extrememly cautious and tempermental, deadly serious but likes to mess with others' heads for the fun of it, protective


@ Mudraker Island

A true "tsundere" Scorpio is known for being rather crass. To call him mild-tempered by any standard would be a lie. Scorpio is cold and blunt, not the least bit afraid to let anyone and everyone know exactly what he thinks of them. Despite all this, he does have a much gentler side that he keeps hidden. It really only comes out whenever Stella is around. Her presence tends to file off his rough edges a bit, though he still isn't what one would call amiable. He is extremely protective of Stella. Anyone or anything that wants to get close to her must first go through him, especially other male Triple Strykes. He's not normally a team player, but when a situation calls for it, Scorpio isn't entirely opposed to asking for help.

Defining traits: abrasive, brusque, fiercely protective, keeps his kind side buried deep


@ Mudraker Island

Though she is generally calm and even-tempered, Stella is by no means a "damsel" type of lady. Fully capable of defending herself from most threats, she sometimes butts heads with Scorpio about his protectiveness. Though she feels strong affection for him, she's just as shy about actually showing it as he is (with the exception of his expressing it through his protectiveness that is). Stella's color pattern is extremely unique compared to other Triple Strykes and very eye catching. Unfortunately for any suitors that may try to come her way, she only has eyes for Scorpio and he won't let any of them get near her anyway. Just as stubborn as her counterpart, Stella is not afraid to show Scorpio her displeasure if he ever does something that she either doesn't like or feels is crossing any sort of line. She can be a bit scatter-brained and clumsy at times but that certainly doesn't make her weak.

Defining traits: stubborn, clumsy, strong-hearted, inquisitive

Dragon Profiles final


@ Melody Island

Named for her "siren" like song, Sirena is one of the more wild dragons Shamira has tamed. Since she was raised around the others from a hatchling, Sirena sees the other dragons as part of her "pack" and doesn't try to attack them. Shamira uses Sirena's song to lure dragons away from any areas that dragon hunters are known to be close to in order to keep them safe and she can also use her songs to help restless dragons get a peaceful sleep. Shamira also has Sirena use her amber breath in much the same way as Moirana's mist - paralyzing the hunters while she sets the dragons they've captured free as well as using it to disable the hunter's ships. Sirena is very playful and sometimes likes to use her songs to play pranks on other dragons, much to their chagrin. Sirena gets along well with most of the other female dragons, but because they are both playful she gets along best with Ginrei.

Defining traits: prankster, wily, distrusting of strangers, easily bored


@ Helheims Gate

His name may be cliché, but Lightning doesn't seem to mind it. In terms of age he is still a juvenile, but don't let his age fool you; he's just as powerful as you would expect a Skrill, titan or otherwise, to be. Wild as a squall and short-tempered, he gets disciplined more often than most of the other dragons for going "off the reservation." Despite his wild temperament, Lightning is quick to listen when Shamira gives him a command. True to his class, Lightning is cunning and plenty able to handle himself in a fight even if Shamira isn't guiding him. He and Zeke get along well and work well as a team, in spite of their opposing personalities.

Defining traits: indipendent, hard-headed, cunning, ferocious


@ Armorwing Island

This gentle giant is pretty docile for a Singetail, at least as long as Shamira is around. He injuried one of his wings while trying to protect his mother from dragon hunters and would have been sold to the highest bidder had Shamira not come along and released him. Setting his mother free from the control of the dragon riding hunters is one of Shamira's on-going goals. Scorch is quick to come to any dragon's defense and is very eager to learn as one of the youngest dragons and one of the few that Shamira didn't raise from an egg. Ororo and Neara both tend to take special care looking after Scorch and he gets along well with both of them. Despite his young age, Scorch isn't very playful and had put Sirena in her place more than once.

Defining traits: peaceful, caring, strong-willed, fierce when the situation calls for it


@ Icestorm Island

"The Great One," that's what a foreign merchant called a mountain from his homeland while trying to sell a painting of it at a market in Shamira's homeland. When she first met Denali, he reminded Shamira so much of that painting that she chose to name him after the mountain in it. She first met the Eruptodon when she needed his help to stop an eruption on an island near where Shamira had been staying. Denali took a liking to her and has stayed close ever since. Though fairly young for and Eruptodon, Denali is the oldest of all Shamira's dragons and likes to share wisdom with the younger dragons.

Defining traits: wise, gentle, proud, strong
