    Blue 

Blue

Narrates The Lost Continent. A young, empathetic, and idealistic SilkWing, though naïve. He is the heart of the group.


  • Actual Pacifist: He HATES violence and death, and prefers a peaceful situation if possible.
  • Blue Is Heroic: His primary colors are blue and purple, and he's one of the protagonists and a very nice dragon.
  • Children Are Innocent: He’s more of a young teenager age, but he's still very ignorant and passive.
  • Constantly Curious: One of the traits he shares with Cricket. He is very curious about the world and the dragons that live in it, trying to imagine what their lives and thoughts are like. He even does this to the dragons he’s close to, like Luna.
  • The Empath: A non-psychic version. Blue has an incredible empathy for everyone around him and likes to spend time "becoming" other dragons, imagining their lives. Because of this, he doesn't perceive the HiveWings as Always Chaotic Evil like many other SilkWings do.
  • Foil: Blue and Clay have a lot in common in terms of personality and using peace rather than violence to solve their problems, the difference is Clay is the huge and muscular Gentle Giant, and Blue is the small Pretty Boy.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Like his father Admiral, he's optimistic and ignorant(though not fully) of the prejudice that they face. They're also both flamesilks.
  • Has Two Mommies: He and Luna are half-siblings who were raised together by their two different mothers. It's implied, though not directly stated, that they fell in love with each other after mating with Blue and Luna's father.
  • The Heart: He serves as this, as the nicest, most empathetic member of the group.
  • Insists on Paying: A non-royalty/leader example: when he, Cricket, and Sundew have to steal expensive disguises to remain undetected in the Glitterbazaar, he worries about how the people selling the clothing will be affected by losing so much money and insists on paying with his own silk, even if it risks them being discovered.
  • Nice Guy: Blue is compassionate, selfless, kind, moralistic, empathetic, optimistic, courageous, encouraging, and always tries to see the good in others. Now does that remind you of someone in the series???
  • Pretty Boy: Cricket describes Blue as the most glorious and beautiful SilkWing she'd ever seen, and is quite handsome. Cricket also thinks his face and wings are handsome.
  • The Team Benefactor: The LeafWings are interested in him due to the possibility of him having flamesilk, which would give them the supplies to set anything they wanted on fire.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: He’s an optimistic and empathetic dragon who lives in a tyranny and is treated as a second-class citizen (though he doesn’t realize it).

    Cricket 

Cricket

Narrates The Hive Queen. Cricket is bright and curious, and asks a lot of questions. She is one of the few HiveWings who is immune to Queen Wasp's mind control.

  • Bookworm: Loves to read books.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Her ability to find hiding places, which she developed in order to hide form the other HiveWings while they were mind controlled, turns out to be very helpful when the whole tribe is trying to capture her and her friends.
  • Constantly Curious: One of the traits she shares with Blue. She is always asking questions and is very interested in science.
  • Curiosity Causes Conversion: When she first meets Blue, she is an Innocent Bigot motivated by a mix of genuine compassion and somewhat condescending curiosity about the strange dragon. Actually getting to know Blue and finding out how badly the SilkWings are treated by their society makes her become a genuine convert to their cause.
  • Curiosity Killed the Cast: Her curiosity leads her to tread into increasingly dangerous territory trying to discover answers about her mind control immunity, as Katydid points out furiously.
  • Determinator: She won't give up on trying to save the HiveWings from their mind control, or on trying to find out the truth.
  • The Idealist: Believes that at least some of the HiveWings will join them if they can be freed from their mind control, while Sundew believes that freeing them is impossible and they would all be horrible regardless.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: She is fascinated by the "reading monkeys" and wants to study them.
  • Immune to Mind Control: She is one of the few HiveWings who cannot be mind-controlled by Queen Wasp.
  • Innocent Bigot: Though overall a good dragon, she starts out having somewhat bigoted views about SilkWings and never questioning some of the more problematic aspects of her society's treatment of them. She gradually grows out of this.
  • Manifesto-Making Malcontent: She writes pamphlets about how everyone is being lied to about the contents of the book of Clearsight and distributes them throughout Jewel hive.
  • Science Hero: She is interested in science, and sometimes uses this knowledge to help her friends, like when she uses a drug she was studying on plants in order to cure Swordtail's paralysis.
  • Smart Dragons Wear Glasses: She wears glasses and is a very intelligent dragon.
  • Token Heroic Orc: Her immunity to mind control makes her this for the HiveWings by default when Wasp is controlling them. She is quick to point out that, while most HiveWings are oppressing the SilkWings even when they are not being controlled, they aren't all bad and she shouldn't be considered the "only good one" in any other context.
  • You Are a Credit to Your Race: Sundew considers her the only good HiveWing, and refuses to believe that Cricket's example could show that other HiveWings are like her as well.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Agreeing to help steal the Book Of Clearsight means that she will never be able to return to her home and her normal life again.

    Sundew 

Sundew

Narrates The Poison Jungle. A fierce dragon who was born and raised to be the savior of the PoisonWings by killing Queen Wasp and getting revenge on the HiveWings.
  • Adopt the Dog: When burning down Wasp's greenhouse, she stops to make sure a HiveWing guard she's knocked out from is dragged away from the flames and saved. Cricket realizes that Sundew would have never made such an effort to save a HiveWing before they met.
  • Badass Gay: She's gay, and is a very fierce fighter who can control plants and animals to her will.
  • Butch Lesbian: She's lesbian and is quite masculine.
  • Child Hater: She hates dragonets, though Bumblebee ends up growing on her eventually.
  • The Chosen One: Her strong leafspeak means she is considered this by her faction of the LeafWings, destined to save them from the HiveWings.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Though not really evil, she is fine most of her life with outright genocide of the HiveWings without concern for civilian or SilkWing casualties, but even she is horrified by Nettle's suggestion of how Hawthorn should have just poisoned Queen Wasp during their peace meeting.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She gets angry very easily (at other dragons, the world, even random frogs). A lot of her Character Development centers around not blindly getting angry at everything but learning to use her anger to her advantage.
  • Hidden Depths: She’s a much kinder dragon than she actually seems to be.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's fierce, short-tempered, gets angry easily, and outright hates the HiveWings and SilkWings with a few exceptions. However, deep down, she's a good dragon who constantly doubts herself and has a kind, vulnerable side that she very rarely shows.
  • Licked by the Dog: Bumblebee absolutely adores her, and attempts to clamber all over her whenever Sundew has to hold her. Initially, Sundew resents this. However, she becomes very fond of her.
  • Master Poisoner: She is an expert on poisonous animals and plants and carries various kinds in pouches to use on missions.
  • Military Brat: She's the daughter of Belladonna, the first-in-command of the PoisonWings.
  • Mundane Utility: Uses her powers for, among many other more practical uses, grow flowers all around the field where she and Willow meet as a romantic gesture.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: First, she gets seen by the whole of Wasp Hive in book 1, leading to Wasp now knowing that the LeafWings are still alive and deciding to launch a genocidal campaign against them. Then she unwittingly uses her powers to grow the Breath of Evil after being tricked into thinking it was a cure to the Breath of Evil, leading to most of the continent getting controlled by it.
  • Not Good with People: Type 2: she is great at communing with plants and unfriendly and angry towards other dragons.
  • Odd Name Out: Her parents, Belladonna and Hemlock, are named after poisonous plants. Sundew is named after a carnivorous one.
  • Secret Relationship: With Willow, due to them being from separate sections of the tribe who hate each other as well as how Sundew is supposed to marry someone else.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: She met Willow by incessantly pursuing a frog that annoyed her all the way into the SapWing village, way past where most dragons would just let it go.
  • The Team Benefactor: She's the only one of the main group who has an army to back her up if she needs to, plus the resources (like various poisonous insects and plants) to win a fight. Without her, they would just be an ineffectual Ragtag Bunch of Misfits.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: She hates the HiveWings for what they did to her tribe, and the SilkWings for agreeing with them. However, she is slowly learning to forgive and realize that it is not the current HiveWings who are at fault.
  • Tyke-Bomb: Her parents specifically got together because they had the most powerful leafspeak and so hers would be even greater, and she was born and raised to be the linchpin in the LeafWings' plan to destroy the HiveWings.
  • Unwitting Pawn: The Breath of Evil, while controlling Hawthorn tricks her into using her powers to grow it.

    Swordtail 

Swordtail

A rebellious, outspoken SilkWing with a hatred for HiveWings. He's also Luna's Love Interest.

  • Butt-Monkey: He often gets mocked and singled out as the least important or useful of the group, despite his insistence otherwise. Then in The Poison Jungle he recklessly wanders into a venus dragontrap.
  • The Champion: For Luna. He's very determined to protect her once she goes missing.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Sundew. They resent each other at first, but they realize that they are Not So Different and become more tolerant of each other. Swordtail is one of the first members of the group that Sundew warms up to.
    • His friendship with Blue could certainly also count.
  • Large Ham: He's always somewhat like this, but taken Up to Eleven temporarily when Cricket uses a stimulant drug to cure his paralysis.

    Bumblebee 

Bumblebee

An orphaned dragonet who Cricket takes pity on. She hatches in The Hive Queen.
  • Big Eater: As a baby dragon, she's constantly hungry.
  • Cheerful Child: Unfazed by everything and always happy.
  • Happily Adopted: Adopted by Cricket before even hatching, and clearly adores her odd surrogate family.
  • Maternity Crisis: Of a sort. Bumblebee hatches at the worst possible time, while the protagonists are fugitives on the run.
  • Meaningful Name: She is named after her black-and-yellow striped pattern, which resembles a bumblebee.
  • Tag Along Kid: Ends up participating in much of Sundew's adventures, mostly because there's nowhere for her to stay.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She loves mangoes.
