A Guide to the Dragons of Pantala

The cover page of A Guide to the Dragons of Pantala from The Lost Continent.

A Guide to the Dragons of Pantala is present at the beginning of The Lost Continent. There is no definitive evidence of whether it is a book or a scroll. The dragon drawings are illustrated by Joy Ang.




A typical HiveWing by Joy Ang

Red, yellow, and/or orange, but always mixed with some black scales; four wings. 


Vary from dragon to dragon; examples include deadly stingers that can extend from their wrists to stab their enemies; venom in their teeth or claws; a paralyzing toxin that can immobilize their prey; or boiling acid sprayed from a stinger on their tails, and in some cases, the ability to emit a disgusting smell. Those who have been stabbed with a stinger from a dragon who has eaten the Breath of Evil, as mentioned in books 12 and 13, can be mind-controlled by that dragon, like Queen Wasp controls most Hivewings.


Queen Wasp



A typical SilkWing by Joy Ang


SilkWings dragonets are born wingless, but go through a metamorphosis at age six, when they develop four huge wings and silk-spinning abilities; as beautiful and gentle as butterflies, with scales in any color under the sun, except black.


Can spin silk from glands on their wrists to create webs or other woven articles; they can detect vibrations with their antennae to assess threats. Some SilkWings develop a rare ability; flame silk, which is silk on fire instead of normal gray, silver silk.


Queen Wasp (the last SilkWing queen, before the Tree Wars, about fifty years ago, was Queen Monarch)



A typical LeafWing by Joy Ang


Thought to have been wiped out during the Tree Wars with the HiveWings but actually aren’t. This tribe has green and brown scales and wings shaped like leaves.


They can absorb energy from sunlight and are accomplished gardeners; some are rumored to have unusual control over plants.


The last known queen of the LeafWings was Queen Sequoia, about fifty years ago, at the time of the Tree Wars. It was later confirmed in The Poison Jungle that Queen Sequoia is still alive, and has a great-granddaughter, Queen Hazel.


  • The tribes from Pantala all have much thinner legs and bodies than the dragons on Pyrrhia. This probably means that these types of dragons are lighter in weight and are built for agility.
  • it is not known which tribe made this guide, but, presuming that HiveWings are the dominant tribe, it is likely this is a guide for HiveWings.
