"But … I'm eating this one."
— Bigtail to Anemone in the Prey Center, Moon Rising

Bigtail was a male NightWing dragonet who was introduced in Moon Rising. He attended Jade Mountain Academy in the Gold Winglet. He was killed by the dragonflame cactus explosion that took place in the History Cave inside Jade Mountain.

Appearance

Bigtail had black scales.[1]

Personality

Bigtail seemed to be somewhat selfish, as he wanted to keep a fish for himself rather than sharing it with Anemone.[2] When Moonwatcher realized she needed to talk to another NightWing, she noted Bigtail wouldn't be any help.[3] Qibli described him as being "fairly unfriendly."[4]

Biography

The Jade Mountain Prophecy

Moon Rising

Bigtail was first mentioned when Moon brainstormed NightWing suspects of the telepath in her mind. She mentioned that they had not met before, due to Bigtail's parents hating Secretkeeper and keeping him away from her.

While eating in the prey center, Anemone requested the fish that Bigtail was eating, claiming that it was her favorite type of fish. Bigtail refused to give it to her, resulting in an argument with Pike, one of Anemone's SeaWing followers and secret guard. Pike stated that Anemone was the SeaWing princess, but Clay split the two up, saying that whoever got the food from the prey center first could have it, but they would review the rules if that didn't work. Tsunami then told Anemone to come hunting with her, which she reluctantly agreed to. As a result, Bigtail kept the rest of the fish to himself.

Later, Bigtail was killed in the History Cave by the explosion set off by Sora's dragonflame cactus bomb. Bigtail and Carnelian died when the dragonflame cactus exploded.

Darkness of Dragons

Qibli thought of Bigtail while remembering Pike's clawmates. Later, he also noted that a dragonflame cactus killed Bigtail when he found one in Cobra's bag.
