Pheasant has brown scales with a paler orange underbelly and brown eyes.
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.
Near the end of the book, Clay made his way back to the Mud Kingdom. His siblings encountered him and were overjoyed to find him. They helped him make peace with himself about attacking the other dragonets' eggs, and, despite their protests, unwillingly let him go. Pheasant stated that maybe Clay was their bigwings, which he biologically is.
In the prologue, the IceWings attack, and Pheasant comes to Sora's rescue. The troop escapes, and Pheasant said she had gained interest in and started to read about the prophecy after they found out Clay was part of it, being the "wings of the earth." In the end, she hoped that Clay would end the war soon.
Pheasant and her siblings are seen when Sunny and Clay go to the Mud Kingdom to send a message to Burn through Moorhen. Pheasant is wary to go along with the MudWings' planned attack on the IceWings to drive them out.
