Colored map of Pantala by Mike Schley

Pantala, also known as the Lost Continent by the dragons of Pyrrhia, is one of the two known continents in the Wings of Fire series, the other being Pyrrhia. It takes multiple days of traveling from the west of Pyrrhia to get there. Its existence was hinted at occasionally, before being confirmed at the end of Darkness of Dragons. The Pantalan dragon tribes include SilkWings, HiveWings, LeafWings, and the extinct BeetleWings.

Description

Pantala is a dragon-shaped continent consisting of a grassland and savanna biome primarily. All over the continent are watering holes and rivers which are often dry.[event 1] Pantala also has a rainy season[1] and dry season, with moderate to hot temperatures.[event 2] It is covered with tall grass,[2] though there are occasional sinkholes underfoot.[3]

The most prominent landmarks of Pantala are the Hives, which are connected structures that host most of the continent's SilkWings and HiveWings. It has several landmarks aside from the Hives, including Lake Scorpion, Beetle Lake, Dragonfly Bay, and the Poison Jungle. The jungle is in the top right of the continent, on the 'head' of the continent. Within the Poison Jungle are the Snarling River and the Gullet River, which are where the neck and mouth would be if Pantala was an actual dragon. The whole continent of Pantala was covered in forest and all three tribes of Pantala co-existed in the whole forest peacefully until Queen Wasp took over.[event 3]

Notable Features

The Abyss

The abyss is a pit located underneath Lake Scorpion, which was the location of the brain of the Othermind and was described to have something glowing and green within it. It was described to have been acting strangely "for the first time in years" ever since the Othermind escaped the Poison Jungle. Whispers were mentioned to have been coming from it, reaching the upper caves of Raven's village.[4] Inside the abyss there is a throne room, where the corpses of Freedom and Cottonmouth used to sit before they were defeated. The anomaly has presumably stopped since the Othermind was defeated in The Flames of Hope.

The Hives

The nine Hives are cities[5][6] inhabited by HiveWings and SilkWings, with Wasp Hive being the largest and oldest.[7] The Hives are made out of a paper-thin material called treestuff, which is a particular mixture of wood pulp, clay, and silk that allows light to filter through while being as solid as rock.[8] The Hives are spread out in a wide circle across the continent, with silk bridges connecting them.[5] Each Hive was once ruled by one of Wasp's female relatives (Lady Jewel, Lady Bloodworm, etc.) before Wasp and all of her sisters (except Jewel) were imprisoned.

The Poison Jungle

The Poison Jungle was the last remaining forest on Pantala after the Tree Wars. It was said to be full of dangerous plants and wildlife, which was why the forest was left alone by the Queen Wasp and the HiveWings. Various dangerous plants that were described to be in the jungle are sundews, venus dragon-traps, cobra lilies, waterwheels, and the quarantined Othermind.[9] Further in the jungle are the homes of both LeafWing factions, the PoisonWings and the SapWings. The jungle was destroyed by the end of The Poison Jungle when the breath of evil manipulated Blue into burning the forest with flamesilk.

Lake Scorpion

Lake Scorpion is a large, scorpion-shaped lake located on the "tail" of Pantala, the southern region. It is considered the largest lake on the southern peninsula.[10] The SilkWings from Jewel Hive, along with Lady Jewel and Scarab intended to flee to the lake.[11]

Dragonfly Bay

Dragonfly Bay is a bay located on the east coast of Pantala.

Beetle Lake

Beetle Lake is a large lake located on the "wing" of Pantala, in the western region.

Trivia

  • There is no animus magic on Pantala, due to its extreme prevalence in the second arc.[event 4]
  • Even though there are not meant to be any trees outside of the Poison Jungle during Queen Wasp's rein, there are some on the Dragontail Peninsula.
