"The dragonets are coming, whether you like it or not, and they'll choose who the next SandWing queen should be."
— Hvitur to Burn, The Dragonet Prophecy

Hvitur was an adult male IceWing who was introduced in the prologue of The Dragonet Prophecy. He was a member of the Talons of Peace and was supposed to be one of the guardians of the dragonets. He was killed by Burn during his escape from Scarlet's palace with the prophesied SkyWing egg and was the first dragon in Wings of Fire shown to be murdered, as well as the first dragon in the series to appear.

Appearance

Hvitur had moon-pale,[1] cold silver scales,[1] silver wings,[1] blue eyes,[1] and a long body.[1]

Personality

Hvitur seemed to have a personality similar to Asha's; he believed in the goodness of dragons and had great faith in the prophecy. He disliked violence and saw the war as unnecessary bloodshed. The other guardians may have been planning to rely on Hvitur and Asha to raise the dragonets, with Dune and Kestrel as trainers and Webs as the teacher. If this were the case, it would have been a significant issue when Asha and Hvitur were killed.

While most IceWings are cold, sarcastic, and sometimes snobbish, Hvitur seemed to be an exception, fiercely believing that the dragonets would end the war, thus willing to sacrifice himself for it.

Biography

Pre-Series

Hvitur, Kestrel, Webs, Dune, and Asha, were charged with the task to find and bring the dragonets of destiny's eggs to the caves under the mountain, along with the duty to protect and raise them for the job of fulfilling the prophecy about them that Morrowseer had foretold. Unfortunately, Asha died of her wounds shortly after delivering Clay's egg.

Hvitur was one of the original five guardians meant to protect the dragonets of destiny. Little is known about him, as he is only mentioned in the prologue of The Dragonet Prophecy. He was in the middle of escaping the SkyWing palace when Burn caught and killed him, along with destroying the egg he was supposed to deliver to the cave underneath the mountains.


The Dragonet Prophecy

The Dragonet Prophecy

In the prologue, Hvitur had broken into the SkyWing palace and stolen the prophesied egg. The largest guards pursued him, knowing it was the dragon Scarlet had warned Burn about. He was caught, and Burn had hot chains wrapped around his snout, preventing him from using his frostbreath. Hvitur pleaded for her not to break the SkyWing egg, but as a result, she did.

Burn dramatically dropped the egg over the cliff, pretending that it slipped through her talons, and proceeded to torment him, saying that even if the dragonets did save the world, it would be far too late for him. She shredded Hvitur's wings after the IceWing desperately tried to leap after the egg. She then stabbed him in the back of the skull with her venom-tipped tail before flinging him off the cliff. His screams stopped long before he hit the ground.

Sometime later, Kestrel found Hvitur's corpse at the cliff's bottom, along with a few fragments of the shattered SkyWing egg.


The Jade Mountain Prophecy

Winter Turning

Hvitur was mentioned indirectly while talking with the Talons of Peace when talking about IceWings in the Talons.

Escaping Peril

In the prologue, Queen Scarlet mentioned that an IceWing thief broke into the palace and stole an egg but was killed by Burn. While his name was never mentioned, she was referring to Hvitur.

Trivia

  • The reason his name was Hvitur was that she was saving her favorite names for the characters that survived longer, like Winter.[event 1]
  • Hvitur is the only character in The Dragonet Prophecy not to appear or be mentioned in the graphic novel adaptation.
  • Hvitur was supposedly low in the rankings, as Glacier said that no IceWings were in the Talons of Peace except for some low-ranked dragons.[2]
