"This one that I'm eating?"
—Bigtail to Anemone in the Prey Center, Moon Rising

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


It is hinted from his argument with Anemone that he has a strong personality. Bigtail is also shown to have been somewhat selfish, wanting to keep the fish for himself. However, this may be due to the lack of food back on the NightWing Island, to which he appreciates food.

Qibli described him as being "fairly unfriendly" in Moon Rising.

Moon Rising

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 started on how 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 that 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.

Later, Bigtail was killed in the History Cave by the explosion set off by Sora. Bigtail died of his burns when the Dragonflame cactus exploded, along with Carnelian in the Jade Winglet.

Qibli thinks of Bigtail while remembering Pike's clawmates. Later, he also notes that dragonflame cactus is what killed Bigtail when it is found in Cobra's bag.


"But... I'm eating this one."
— to Pike, after the SeaWing told him to give his fish to Anemone (Moon Rising, page 110)


  • Moon mentioned that Bigtail's parents disliked her mother, and tried to keep out of her way.
