Fjord was an adult male IceWing who was introduced in The Dragonet Prophecy. Before being imprisoned by Scarlet, he fought for Blaze during the War of SandWing Succession. He was killed by Glory's venom during combat with Clay in the SkyWing Arena.
Fjord had pale, glacier-blue scales the color of sky reflected in snow, slightly darker blue eyes, and silvery, strangely tough wings, as well as a long tail, sharp claws, and icicle-sharp teeth. He was a head taller than Clay, but appeared older and scarier. A long claw scratch ran down his neck, with dried blood coating the scales surrounding it.
Fjord appeared to be intent on surviving the arena and did not hesitate to attack his opponents, even Clay, who was a dragonet at the time. As he is determined to survive, he also chooses to play fairly, wanting Clay to stop talking or else they will both die. Fjord won two arena battles with only one injury, suggesting he was a skilled fighter, like many other IceWings.
The Dragonet Prophecy
|The Dragonet Prophecy|
Clay first tried to reason with Fjord when they were thrown into the arena together, which agitated the IceWing. Fjord was very intent on winning the fight because that would mean he would be set free. Clay then reluctantly fought him, surprising him with SkyWing tactics he had learned from Kestrel under the mountain. Starflight tried to tell Clay about the IceWing's freezing frostbreath by pointing to his mouth and jumping around. Clay only got the message just in time right before Fjord exhaled the frostbreath and barely hit Clay's wing - he said: "Fjord was definitely doing something with his mouth - and it wasn't smiling."
Clay then spurted fire in Fjord's face, causing him to shriek in agony. After Clay rolled under him and slashed his belly, Fjord yelled at him that he did not fight like a MudWing. Clay briefly wondered whether Kestrel would say he fought like a SkyWing. Eventually, Fjord pinned Clay to the ground and was about to kill him when Tsunami flung herself off of her spire, causing a diversion (dragging off many prisoners) and distracting Fjord momentarily. The act could have killed Tsunami and many prisoners. Most of the dragons in the arena were either flying towards her or staring in her direction.Distracted by the diversion, there was enough time for Glory to spit venom into the IceWing's already-scratched-and-scarred neck, face, and eye, which led to his extremely painful death since RainWing venom kills a dragon faster if it lands in the eyes or enters the bloodstream. Also because of the distraction, Clay was the only one who saw Glory's venom, so all the SkyWings, MudWings, and SandWings watching thought that Clay had killed Fjord instead.
|The Hidden Kingdom|
|When Glory was disguised as an IceWing to get into Blaze's fortress, she somewhat modeled Fjord, the prisoner she secretly killed in the arena who was pitted against Clay. Clay winced when he saw the IceWing disguise, and Glory guessed Clay knew who she based her colors on. When Glory taught Jambu how to change into an IceWing disguise, she has him imitate her imitating Fjord before she had him alter it. Jambu was very impressed with the pretty IceWing scales.|

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