Crane was a female MudWing dragonet who was introduced in The Dragonet Prophecy. She was a member of Clay's sib group and a soldier in Moorhen's army. She was killed by Icicle during a battle between the IceWings and the MudWings.
The Dragonet Prophecy
Crane was killed in a battle between the IceWings and the MudWings at the Mud Kingdom's border, which took place two days before Clay and Glory reached the area, leaving Clay to wonder how many of his siblings would still be alive when the war ended. She was killed the same day Clay battled Fjord in the SkyWing arena.
While patrolling the borders of the Mud Kingdom, Reed wondered if Crane would have still been alive if Clay had been their bigwings instead of him. Reed doesn't like to think about the battle, as it makes him feel as if "a huge pit has opened up inside of him that he just wants to fall into." He feels terrible about it and doesn't want it to be true.
The Jade Mountain Prophecy
Icicle was Sora's clawmate at Jade Mountain Academy. Crane was mentioned when Sora asked Kinkajou to leave so she could apologize to Tamarin alone, who was seen crying when Moonwatcher, Qibli, and Umber came rushing in. When Moon read Sora's mind, a flashback was seen where Crane had saved Sora from an IceWing, who turned out to be Icicle, smiling at Sora as she screamed for her murdered sister. Because of Crane's death, Sora had tried to kill Icicle to get revenge. However, she failed both times — once with a dragonflame cactus and the other with a stalactite on the roof of the prey center. One murder attempt accidentally killed Carnelian and Bigtail, and severely injured Tamarin.
