"So from then on, the bigwings takes care of all the others. Some of them can be pretty bossy or too weak, but we got a good one. I mean, you would have been a good one too, I'm sure…"
— Pheasant to Clay, The Dragonet Prophecy

Pheasant is an adult female MudWing who was introduced The Dragonet Prophecy. She currently resides in the Mud Kingdom and is doing some work for Queen Moorhen.


Pheasant has brown scales[1] with a paler orange underbelly and brown eyes.[2]


As a MudWing, Pheasant is loyal to her sibs, especially towards her bigwings. She especially praises Reed, calling him a good bigwings and thanking him for leading them during battle. She appears knowledgable, being the only one in her troop who have practiced her reading.


Pheasant hatched along with Reed, Sora, Marsh, Crane, and Umber. She was raised with Reed, who was filling in as bigwings due to Clay's absence, as his egg was sold by Cattail to the Talons of Peace for at least two cows in order to fulfill the Dragonet Prophecy.
