Pheasant is a young adult female MudWing and one of the six siblings of Clay, as well as the third-hatched dragonet of Cattail, and Asha's niece. Her father is still unknown, although he is known to be deceased. She never attended Jade Mountain Academy, although some of her siblings, Sora, Umber, and Marsh, did.
She has dark brown scales on her back and lighter brown scales on her stomach and sides.
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 during battle. Pheasant might still be mourning the loss of Crane, as MudWing siblings form a close bond with each other.
She and Sora are the only MudWings in the group to practice 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.|

"Well, it doesn't matter. What matters is we survived another battle, thanks to Reed."

"That's not a normal MudWing name."- To Glory
