NightWingGuideToTheDragonsOfPyrrhia

The cover page of the scroll from The Dragonet Prophecy to The Brightest Night.

A NightWing Guide to the Dragons of Pyrrhia is present at the beginning of every Wings of Fire book except The Lost Continent and is a scroll available to any dragon in Pyrrhia. The dragon drawings are illustrated by Joy Ang.

Before being updated by Starflight, the guide incorrectly stated that Dazzling was the current queen of the RainWings; that the tribe had no natural weapons, that all of the NightWings still had telepathy and precognition, and gave no mention about the animus magic in the royal family of the SeaWings (most likely because the NightWings either did not possess the knowledge or did not want to share it). In Moon Rising, the guide is edited by Starflight, adding details such as the RainWings' venom, Queen Glory being queen of the RainWings and NightWings, and the NightWings' lack of their supposed powers.

Before being updated by Starflight, the guide states which side of the SandWing war each tribe was on/who they were allied with. Only afterwards, it shows which students from which tribes are at Jade Mountain Academy.

This description is updated according to the plot of the series, and therefore is slightly different from the actual guide.

In Darkstalker, the guide showed the same information only updated to the time of the start of the book and also showed the Animus Dragons of each tribe.
