"Very well, kill the other four and bring her."
—Shark, to his SeaWing guard team,about Tsunami and the other Dragonets of Destiny in The Lost Heir (Book 2).

Shark is a male SeaWing and the brother of Queen Coral, and therefore, a prince of The Kingdom of the Sea. His daughter, Moray, could be a possible heir for the throne if none of the queen's daughters could take it. He is seemingly very conniving and untrustworthy, and has a fierce temper. Shark is also the commander of the armies of The Kingdom of the Sea and in charge of the military in the SeaWing Council.

Appearance Edit

Shark has scales a green so dull it is almost grey, like stone where moss has been scraped away[2]. He has tiny bone-pale unblinking eyes under a knobbly protruding forehead, likely the source of his name[2]. His horns twist strangely toward each other[2], and he has no battle scars.


The Lost HeirEdit

Shark stopped Riptide and the Dragonets as they approached the SeaWing Summer Palace. He confirmed that Tsunami was Queen Coral's daughter from the bio-luminescent starburst patterns on the underside of her wings that are shared exclusively in the SeaWing Royal Family. He allowed them through, however, not before trying to have the rest of the Dragonets of Destiny killed for security purposes. Tsunami yelled at him to let them through and states that she is the lost SeaWing princess.

When they entered the Summer Palace, Queen Coral put all the Dragonets except Tsunami in Blister's cave and shows Tsunami around while Shark makes a gesture with his index talon saying, "Not yet. We'll finish it later". With the threat of having a MudWing in their palace, he ordered Clay to be chained to the wall. This caused Clay, along with the others, to almost drown. Glory and Sunny didn't want to leave Clay and they were about to drown. Starflight also stayed with them, but perhaps just to make sure that Sunny was okay.

Tsunami suspected Shark of trying to attack her in the underwater tunnels that lead to the palace. She also suspected he was the one who smashed Queen Coral's eggs. However, Shark wasn't the one responsible for either attack, though he did grant permission for Tortoise to leave her post at the Royal Hatchery to eat an octopus, unknowingly letting one of the eggs inside the hatchery to be demolished. He also states that he thinks that a son should inherit the throne. 

Because Shark ordered Clay to be chained to the floor, he would have been responsible for the deaths of the dragonets if they had drowned in the storm. For this and disobeying her orders (as well as Tsunami's dramatic reveal of what he had done), Queen Coral has him imprisoned in her underwater dungeon with Tsunami's approval, along with another dragon named Lagoon. He was later released either before or during an attack on the Summer Palace by Burn's forces, mostly SkyWings, and led the defense. Afterwards, he fled to the Deep Palace with the rest of the surviving SeaWings.

Talons of PowerEdit

Anemone says she thought about turning him bright pink and making all his teeth fall out. Turtle also remembers him in the flashback. He was on the beach, pacing and glowering at everyone.


Shark is generally assumed to have military-like aspects, expects to be obeyed immediately, and is said to be quite vicious. Tsunami describes him as "creepy." He is shown to be a practical thinker. He suggested at one point that a son should inherit the throne if there are no daughters born to a queen. He tends to be very suspicious, as shown when he ordered the dragonets to be killed on the chance that they might be a threat and that MudWings, one of their enemies, were joining them. But in the end Shark is loyal to Coral, and has shown no actions hinting towards overthrowing his sister. Shark is very fish-like because he is said to never blink. He is very suspicous of the dragonets of destiny.

Trivia Edit

  • Because of Albatross being part IceWing, Shark is of IceWing decent.
  • He is noted to have small, unblinking eyes and horns that curved inward.
  • Queen Coral stated that he is lucky that he is her brother, likely inferring that Coral would have killed Shark a long time ago if they weren't related.
