"Of course I am. Who knew that infiltrating the Talons of Peace would be so useful? I never thought I'd get the chance to follow an idiot SeaWing back to the secret palace we've been searching for all this time. [...] Plus, bonus dragonets of destiny. I am so getting a promotion."
— Crocodile to Webs, The Lost Heir

Crocodile was an adult female MudWing who was introduced in The Lost Heir. Although she was thought to be a member of the Talons of Peace, she served under Burn as a spy and revealed the location of the Summer Palace to the SkyWings. She was killed by Glory's venom during the bombing of the Summer Palace.

Appearance

Crocodile was large,[1] with brown scales[2] and wings.[1] Her wings were creased with soot, and she had a horrible scar pulling down one corner of her mouth into a strange grimace.[1]

Personality

Crocodile was shown to be manipulative and deceptive. She was also a skilled liar, since she managed to convince Webs that Queen Coral had a change of heart and was merciful.

Biography

The Dragonet Prophecy

The Lost Heir

Crocodile was one of the newest members of the Talons of Peace, who confronted Webs about the missing dragonets. She saved him from being mauled by Cirrus by fighting him, as well as other Talons of Peace members to gain his trust in the prologue of the book. Once Webs was safe, Crocodile suggested that he should go back to the Kingdom of the Sea, where Coral would presumably forgive him, and how it might be the only way for him to be safe.

She later appeared at Queen Coral's prison, where it was revealed that she was actually a Talons of Peace infiltrator and an ally of Burn's army by leading the SkyWings and MudWings to the Summer Palace. Crocodile knew where to go because she secretly followed Webs back to the Summer Palace. Before she could do anything, however, Glory spat venom into her eyes. Crocodile presumably died, but her body was mentioned to be never found. The army of SkyWings and MudWings that Crocodile brought destroyed the Summer Palace.

The Hidden Kingdom

Crocodile is mentioned by Starflight after Sunny says Webs still mumbled in his sleep about leading the SkyWings to the Summer Palace, which Starflight responds to saying it wasn't his fault and he didn't know Crocodile was following him. It leads Glory to think about how she used her RainWing venom on Crocodile, and remembering the flash of fear on the MudWing's face.

The Dark Secret

When Mastermind showed Starflight his RainWing venom studies, Starflight thought back to the dragons he'd seen it kill, Crocodile and Fjord.
