In General

  • Actual Pacifist: RainWings don't usually eat meat or harm any living creature. Kinkajou even throws herself in front of Grandeur's venom spray to prevent a sloth from being harmed.
    • May be gaining more Martial Pacifist tendencies now that Glory is Queen and plans to militarize them.
  • Chameleon Camouflage: They can change the color of their scales to blend in with their environment.

  • Emancipated Child: RainWings "don't do parents"; instead, they lay their eggs in a single large clutch, and then then all raise the resulting hatchlings together.
  • Hidden Elf Village: All of them live in a single village in the rainforest, where they have withdrawn from other dragons ever since Grandeur's early reign.
  • Neutral No Longer: They don't end up actually participating in the War of SandWing Succession but they do end up fighting Blister's allies, the NightWings, in a separate conflict.
  • Never Learned to Read: They don't have scrolls. Though Chameleon taught himself to read and Jade Mountain academy means others can now learn.
  • Perfect Pacifist People: See Actual Pacifist above.
  • Poisonous Person: They possess hollow fangs that can shoot a highly corrosive venom.
  • Power of the Sun: Exposure to the sun strengthens them and allows them to spit venom.
  • Advertisement:
  • Prehensile Tail: Their tails are capable of coiling around things to hold them.
  • Surprise Incest: Averted. Although most RainWings grow up never knowing who their family members are, any two dragons can identify if they are related to one another if both spit their venom. If the dragons are related, their venom will react and counter the harmful effects. Glory does this and determines that Jambu is her brother, and that Queen Grandeur is a distant relative.
  • Team Switzerland: They stay out of wars and have been completely neutral for as long as most dragons (who live 150-200 years) remember.
  • Tranquilizer Dart: They use these.
  • Tree Top Town: Live in one, as you would expect from flying rainforest dragons.
  • Veganopia: They only eat fruit, unlike the other carnivorous dragons, and have the most peaceful and Utopian society of the dragons, with no threats until the NightWings.

    Magnificent 

Queen Magnificent

  • Forgetful Jones: She tends to forget almost all of her responsibilities. It's the main reason why she's such an ineffective queen.
  • Head-in-the-Sand Management: She completely ignores how fourteen RainWings have disappeared over the past year, despite Mangrove's efforts. This is why Glory wants to take her place.

    Grandeur 

Queen Grandeur

  • Abdicate the Throne: In favor of Glory, after she finds out that they are actually related.
  • Blue Blood: Descended from the original RainWing ruling family.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Kinkajou notes that she is a bad queen like the others because she almost never answers everyone's petition. However, she turns out to be far more competent then the others, just disillusioned with how the other RainWings have become.
  • Hero of Another Story: She mentions that she once fought in a war where she used her venom and camouflage for fighting, when their territory was invaded. Nothing is ever mentioned about it again, though.
  • Lady of War: She's noted to be very regal and the only one of the RainWing queens who seems like an actual queen. She still looks graceful when she's proving a champion at venom shooting and she actually led her tribe into wars when she was younger.

    Jambu 

Jambu

  • Cover Identity Anomaly: When he and Glory disguise themselves with IceWings to meet Blaze, his admiration of the SandWings' art (real IceWings prefer more subtle colors and art) somewhat ruins his disguise. Fortunately, it is Blaze they're talking to.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish sibling to Glory's responsible sibling.
  • Manchild: He's always excited, treating a scouting mission as a game, for example.

    Mangrove 

Mangrove

  • Determinator: No one will stop him from rescuing Orchid.
  • Grumpy Bear: Is one of the only RainWings who doesn't act happy all of the time.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Rushes ahead of the other dragons into the Sand kingdom because he wants to find Orchid immediately, just when they were thinking of a plan.
  • Only Sane Man: He's the only RainWing who cares about how so many of them are going missing.

    Exquisite 

Exquisite

  • Crazy Sloth Dragon: She is obsessed with sloths above everything else, including her position as queen, so she makes a horrible ruler. In Winter Turning, she appears out of nowhere to attack Winter when he tries to kill a sloth.

    Fruit Bat 

Fruit Bat:

  • Odd Name Out: The other queens of the RainWings are Magnificent, Grandeur, Splendor, Dazzling, and Exquisite. Kinkajou lampshades that her name doesn't fit the pattern.

    Tamarin 

Tamarin

  • Covered in Scars: She has several scars thanks to bumping into tree branches and similar objects due to her blindness. Becomes this fully after being nearly burned to death by a dragonflame cactus bomb.
  • Handy Helper: To Starflight. Kinkajou serves as this to her.
  • Improbable Taxonomy Skills: She's very good at identifying flowers, even though she's blind.
  • The Nose Knows: Identifies flowers very accurately by smelling them.
  • Sixth Ranger: Is the only one of the dragons Glory teams up with in her bid for the RainWing throne that she hasn't already worked with before.

    Handsome 

Handsome

  • Mr. Exposition: His only role is to describe how a challenge for the RainWing throne should be performed.

    Splendor 

    Dazzling 

    Kinkajou 

Kinkajou

"WOULDN'T THAT BE SO AMAZING?"

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: She staunchly protects Moon from Winter's bullying... but is Squee!ing on the inside about how cute he looks.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: She is the youngest and smallest member of Jade Winglet, so the other dragons tend to be protective of her.
  • Badass Adorable: She's an enthusiastic and very young dragon... who is capable of setting up the release of the captured RainWings from the NightWings under their noses because they underestimated her too much, holding her own in a fight against those same NightWings, and going toe-to-toe with Queen Grandeur in venom accuracy {only losing out on distance because RainWings improve on that only with age.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She mostly acts silly and overly excited, so Winter is quite surprised when he finds out that she was one of the dragons captured by the NightWings. He would be even more so if he knew just the role she played in saving the entire RainWing tribe.
    • Taken to full effect in Darkness of Dragons, where Kinkajou realizes that Darkstalker can only be harmed by his own magic. She enchants a strawberry to turn him into a harmless NightWing-RainWing dragonet. It works.
  • Face Your Fears: She is dismayed that being a student at Jade Mountain means she will have to work with a NightWing. By the end of the second series, that NightWing has become her best friend and Kinkajou has taken down the strongest NightWing who ever lived.
  • Fantastic Racism: She grumbles internally about rooming with a NightWing — mostly because the tribe once imprisoned her. Upon realizing that Moon "is hardly a NightWing at all", she feels more confident talking with her.
  • Genki Girl: Enthusiastically converses with Moon, babbling about how great the Academy is and how happy she is to be there. Her dialogue is often rendered in capitals.]
  • Genre Blindness: She thinks that finding the Lost City of Night will instantly make the threat to Jade Mountain, a plan that's unlikeliness is Lampshaded by Turtle.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Of Glory.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Is subtly jealous whenever Moon spends time with another dragon. This is caused by her fear of loneliness.
  • Innocently Insensitive: When Carnelian refuses to introduce herself, Kinkajou jokes about what her name could be and constantly tries to draw her into conversation. Carnelian is insulted by this, having made her desire for privacy perfectly clear.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: She rushes into every dangerous situation, in contrast to Turtle.
  • Motor Mouth: She talks a lot. Especially evident when she's monologuing to a Bound and Gagged Glory.
  • Noble Bigot: The aforementioned racism is limited to stray thoughts and a few well-intentioned comments. She doesn't let either interfere with befriending Moon and making her feel welcome.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: She is the youngest of Jade Winglet and very small, though she can hold her own impressively in a fight.
  • Plucky Girl: She is always optimistic and determined, even when she is captured by the NightWings and hit by Grandeur's venom.
  • Put on a Bus: Is absent from the main party in Escaping Peril due to being attacked and severely injured by Chameleon.
  • Shipper on Deck: She wants Winter and Moon to be together, despite her own crush on him.
  • Smarter Than You Look: She describes herself as smart but annoying, and takes to academic life quite well, even though her personality would not seem to indicate intelligence. And her crush on Winter is just part of the school experience for her, not something she puts too much stake in; she's just as happy about Moon's relationship with Winter.
  • Static Character: Why she wasn't given a book with her point of view like much of the rest of Jade Winglet.
  • Stuffed in the Fridge: Defied: Turtle gives up his stick concealing himself to save her because he feels Kinkajou deserves better than just having this role in the story.
  • Taking the Bullet: Flies in front of Grandeur's venom to save a sloth who accidentally jumps into the target range.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She is at first upset at Moon for not telling her and the others about her visions and mind-reading, leaving her alone for a while. But being the friendly bubbly dragon she is, she doesn't hold it against Moon, and she forgives her as long as Moon promises to tell her and the others of Jade Winglet about her visions from now on.

    Chameleon 

Chameleon

  • Archnemesis Dad: To Peril, being Scarlet's second-in-command.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Hates all other RainWings because of how they treated him before, to the point of trying to kill any on sight.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Gets mentioned off hand in Winter Turning before he is revealed to be so important. Even before that, he appears as Cirrus in a minor role in The Lost Heir.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: Is Scarlet's closest ally after she is deposed, but is aiding her for her own purposes and because the alternative is Scarlet revealing his secret to everyone.
  • Enigmatic Minion: He obeys Scarlet, but his his own secret agenda.
  • Explaining Your Powers to the Enemy: Boasts to the Jade Winglet of all of the powers he gave his NightWing form since they last met.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Goes from an exiled RainWing who can't even change color to one of the most powerful dragons in Pyrrhia.
  • Glorified Sperm Donor: He never even knew Peril was his child, and was only supposed to be part of the breeding program that produced her. Despite this, they get along well and he quickly convinces her to help Queen Scarlet in exchange for getting normal scales.
  • Green and Mean: He is perpetually green because he can't camouflage, and he's a villain.
  • Ironic Name: His name is Chameleon, but he's the only RainWing who can't camouflage.
  • It's All About Me: Peril calls him out on this when he feels hurt that Peril turned Ruby back into Tourmaline because it revealed his secret, despite how it saved Ruby's life.
  • The Insomniac: Is incapable of sleeping for more than a short time, which is theorized to be the reason he doesn't possess camouflage powers.
  • Last Episode, New Character: First appears in the epilogue of Moon Rising. Though he has already showed up as Cirrus in The Lost Heir.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Is Peril's father. When he announces this to her, Peril is not particularly thrilled due to him just turning up and saying so.
  • Meaningful Rename: His name in his NightWing form is Shapeshifter, representing his true powers, in contrast to his original name. Peril points out that his name seems suspiciously perfect, but he argues that most NightWings have meaningful names.
  • The Mole: In his disguise as Cirrus, he is this for Scarlet in the Talons of Peace.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Gives his NightWing form this by Escaping Peril.
  • One-Winged Angel: He augments his already enormous NightWing form to make it nigh-invincible and super-strong.

  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Uses Darkstalker's scroll to do this, allowing him to have a form in every tribe.
  • Who's Laughing Now?: He was bullied and shunned by the other RainWings for his inability to change color, escalating to the point that he got exiled. He is first mentioned (well, at least his RainWing self is) in Winter Turning, where Jambu and Bullfrog discuss what a creepy dragon he was for not being able to sleep and having an ugly, unchanging color. Once he gets Darkstalker's scroll, he uses it to gain great powers and kill any RainWing on sight.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Peril mishears his SkyWing name, Soar, as "Sore". He is quite disappointed when he realizes that SkyWings must have thought his name was Sore all along.

    Coconut 

Coconut

  • Flat Character: Moonwatcher states that he's the only dragon she's ever seen with such one-dimensional thoughts besides Pyrite.
  • Ironic Name: He hates coconuts, which is lampshaded several times.
  • The Ditz: He's pretty much the stereotypical [RainWing] that Glory hates and spends all of his time thinking boring thoughts about food. It doesn't help Glory, Kinkajou, or Moonwatcher's opinion of him.
