This article contains plot details about the recently released book, Dragonslayer. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.
Ivy, referred to as Holler by Princess Sunny, is a female scavenger and one of the three protagonists of the second Legends book, Dragonslayer, the other two being Leaf and Wren. She is one of two scavengers that Sunny met in the scavenger ruins in The Brightest Night, along with Leaf. She is also the daughter of Heath. She may have a crush on Leaf as she tried to kiss Leaf while he was invisible.
According to The Brightest Night, Ivy has enormous brown eyes, long dark hair that flows from her head down to the middle of her back, and has the same little nose and features as Flower, as well as being smaller than her. She wore what Sunny described as "a fabric" draped around her, which has a pocket that she kept her dreamvisitor in. Sunny describes her as cute and adorable. She also held a dreamvisitor, which was described to be the size of an orange. Sunny noticed that Ivy moved in a quick, confident way.
On the cover of Dragonslayer, Ivy has long dark hair and tan skin. She wears a pink shirt with a brown belt, tan pants, and light brown shoes. She appears to be holding a miniature dreamvisitor attached to a chain in her hands.
While not much of her true personality was known in The Brightest Night due to her being a scavenger instead of a dragon, Ivy appears to be braver than most scavengers, as she yelled at Sunny and also requested rides from her once they befriended each other, although this was later revealed to be Ivy trying to ask Sunny where her aunt Rose (Flower) was. Sunny also mentioned that she moved confidently. More about her personality is revealed in Dragonslayer when she was initially shown to idolize her father, Heath, for his supposed heroism, but as she grew older, she began to fear that Heath may not be as brave and heroic as everybody excluding herself thought he was. This is later proven to be true when Ivy learns that Rose's "death" was partly due to an unrepentant Heath's cowardliness and that it was Ivy's uncle, not Heath, who slaughtered Oasis. Realizing that Heath was nothing but a fraud, Ivy develops resentment towards her father for his cowardliness and lack of remorse for lying about it.
Ivy first appears in Chapter 3 of Dragonslayer. Ivy was very young at this time. She asks her mother, Lark about her father's heroism and Lark responds how he killed Queen Oasis. Later, Ivy mentally notes how Dragonslayer manor was actually created by the women and children but that her father took all the credit.
At Jade Mountain, a scavenger, later revealed to be Ivy, contacted (possibly accidentally) Sunny using a dreamvisitor. Sunny assumed that the only way the scavenger can have gotten the dreamvisitor was by stealing it, and so she traveled to the scavenger ruins in hopes that the rest of the SandWing Treasure would be there.
Upon arrival at the ruins, Sunny climbed onto a tree to survey the area from above and hide until the scavengers came. Eventually, at night, two scavengers emerged from the burnt village; one of them with short, fluffy hair, and a more confident one with longer hair. Sunny approached the scavengers, but was forced to trap them on the remains of a scavenger building due to them not being cooperative and trying to attack her. She gave Ivy the name Holler because she was being very loud, and the other Fluffy because of his fluffy hair.
After Sunny asked for the dreamvisitor, Ivy and Fluffy (Leaf) began to argue, presumably on whether to give it to the dragonet or not. Eventually, Ivy produced the sapphire and gave it to Sunny. Sunny then asked for the rest of the treasure by drawing a pile of it in the dirt with her claw. After watching the two scavengers discuss it for a while, she decided to take Fluffy off of the wall, assuming that he would bring the treasure in return for Ivy. Ivy then demanded a ride from the dragonet, and so Sunny let her onto her back and flew off in search of Fluffy.
After Fluffy gives Sunny a sack full of treasure, Sunny noticed that the Eye of Onyx was not in there, although the Lazulite Dragon was. Sunny questioned the scavengers, but they did not appear to have it. As she was about to leave, Sunny considered keeping Ivy and Fluffy as pets, but eventually decided against it. Ivy asked Sunny for another ride, but Sunny regretfully told them that she had to leave, and flew away with the sack of treasure. Sunny wondered if she would ever see them again.
Sunny mentions her (as Holler) and Leaf (or Fluffy) indirectly when talking to Winter about scavengers and what to do with Bandit.

"Mommy, is Daddy famous? All the people at the party tonight were acting like he's maybe famous." - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"Because he's the boss of everyone, or because he did a Dragonstare a long, long, long time ago?" - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"I thought Uncle Stone Dragonstared too." - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"What does slay mean?" - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"Mommy, I know about hunting. You mean like the way you poke squirrels and rabbits with arrows to get us dinner." - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"Other dragons? Why didn't Daddy Dragonslayer them too?" - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"I want to see a dragon." - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"Why was Uncle Stone yelling at Daddy about running away from the dragons? Did he want Daddy to slayer all of them?" - To her mother in Dragonslayer
"Were the other dragons mad at Daddy? I think maybe slayering a dragon is not very nice. I bet that dragon did not like getting poked until it fell over and couldn't get up again."
"Mommy. Mommy. Mommy, you know how Daffodil has a pet rabbit? Do you think I can have a pet dragon?"
"Miss Laurel, can I ask you a question?"
"Did you hear my dad's speech last night?"
"That everybody has to go, except kids. But Mother brought me anyway." - About what 'mandatory' means.
"I guess it was mostly confusing. I didn't understand what Daddy was saying." - About the meeting
"But Daddy goes to the old village all the time." - When she hears that people aren't allowed to look through the ruins.
"He does! [...] He brings things back! Spoons and horseshoes and other stuff!" - When Miss Laurel doesn't believe her dad goes to the ruins.
"I think Daddy made up a law after Pine went there."
"Wow! [...] Did you carry all of those at the same time?" - About the water buckets.
"No. [...] He just said Pine had to leave and never come back."
"Well, I thought so, [...] but Mrs. Laurel said I must have misunderstood."
"Did you guys know that there's a law saying nobody's allowed to go to the old village?"
"I've never heard of a law like that before."
"But that's all Pine did!" - About The Dragonslayer and Violet's dads going to the old village.
"No, no. He went to the old village. That's why he got banished. Because there's a law that says you can't."
"Maybe I'm wrong, though, [...] Maybe it's a new law."
"But won't you get in trouble ? [...] My parents yell at me when I try to find things out."
"Um... should I leave the cave?"
"What is the club called?"
"My dad's a liar. He let his sister die. And all the people he's banished, and who knows how many hundreds of people in all those villages the dragons destroyed. That's all because of him."- To Daffodil, Stone, and Violet.
