Fritillary has lime-green stripes across his scales.
Fritillary is shown to be very mean and irritable, wishing that everyone hated the world as much as he did. He is also described as never missing the chance to join in a fight and strongly disliking everyone else, a feeling described as mutual. He often started arguments with other flamesilks, and most of them hate him. Blue describes Fritillary as having an everlasting bad temper.
The Lost Continent Prophecy
Fritillary argued with Admiral and the other flamesilks often. When Blue first arrived at the flamesilk factory and met his father, Admiral, Fritillary shouted rude things about Blue to Admiral which started a fight between them.
Later, when Blue visited all of the flamesilks, everybody was said to warn him away from Fritillary. Blue suspected that Fritillary must dislike living in the flamesilk factory due to his bad temper.
Blue saw Fritillary, along with Danaid and Pierid, in a nightmare, all of them yelling at each other. When he woke up and saw Luna emerge from her cocoon, Fritillary yelled at Admiral that he would give her three days until she found out that Admiral was the most annoying.
Fritillary was also one of the ten screaming flamesilks in the massive shouting commotion Danaid caused in order to help Blue escape. Fritillary was seen yelling at Admiral that his dragonets were boring, which made both Admiral and Danaid shout back at him that they were not.

- "Better than your millipedian claw-waving folderol! […] Are you poisoning his ears with your stupid ideas already? Did you tell him the queen chews up all your letters and spits them out? Because they're the dumbest things she's ever read?"

- "Your brains are a pile of bananas! Your dragonets are boring!"
