"You [...] This is all your fault. Your earrings. Your fine words. Your stupid dragonet."
—Prickle to Smolder, Darkness of Dragons


Prickle is an adult female SandWing who appears in the prologue of Darkness of Dragons and Prisoners. She is Palm's identical twin sister, and was taken to Queen Oasis' prison after being mistaken for Palm.

Appearance

Prickle has patterns of light brown scales freckled across her paler yellow scales, much like her sister. Compared to Palm, she looks more lean and weathered because of living on her own in the desert for two years. She wears earrings made of fire opal that were originally Palm's, but her sister gave them to her for being allowed to stay in her hut for one night while fleeing from the guards.[1] 

Personality

When Thorn and Qibli visited the dungeons, Prickle is shown to be insane and aggressive. Thorn mentioned that she had tried to release Prickle, but she'd attacked every guard that entered her cell, even managing to stab two guards with her tail barb before Thorn gave up. Before her imprisonment in Queen Oasis's dungeon, she was seen as snappy and grumpy, and a bit vindictive, but relatively sane compared to her mental state following twenty years of false imprisonment.

Biography

The Jade Mountain Prophecy

Darkness of Dragons
In the prologue, Palm appears at the door of Prickle's hut after being chased by a fraction of the SandWing army, where Prickle asks Palm why she should let her in. After a quick discussion, Palm reluctantly gives her earrings to Prickle, saying that Smolder gave them to her. This brings up a discussion about Smolder, Prickle disliking him and Palm defending him. During their talk, the soldiers chasing Palm break into Prickle's hut. They take Prickle away, thinking that she was Palm because she was wearing her earrings. One soldier, by the name of Agave, recognizes that the soldiers captured the wrong dragon, but says nothing as the soldier was a former friend of Palm. While Smolder and Onyx are hiding from the sandstorm that Qibli caused, after the attempted assassination of Queen Thorn, Prickle begins screaming at them from her cell about her innocence and her plans of vengeance against Palm. Thorn explains that they would have freed her, but approaching the cell ends in injuries for her soldiers, so they decided to leave her. She was likely starved many times in the past by Burn's negligence of prisoners.

Winglets

Prisoners
When Fierceteeth is trying to get Saguaro to hear her story, she mentions a "gibbering mad SandWing a few cages down who never shuts up". The SandWing she is referring to is Prickle. This was confirmed in Darkness of Dragons.

Relationships

Palm

Prickle despised Palm ever since her false imprisonment. She said that Palm "stole" her identity and it was her romance with Smolder that led her there. Even before her imprisonment, Prickle and Palm didn't seem to be on the best terms, although this may have been due to Prickle's cold and reserved attitude as she was going to help her sister escape the palace guards (even if it was just to gain Palm's fire opal earrings).

Smolder

Smolder was the dragon who gave Palm her fire opal earrings, which were used to help Palm trick the guards into arresting her twin. Prickle despises him due to his love for Palm, which led to her imprisonment. Even after all her years in Queen Oasis' dungeons, Prickle still recognized him as the dragon who had ruined her life.

Quotes

"Oh, by the circle of snakes, [...] I told you to stay away from that prince. You should have left the palace with me when he first started mooning around the kitchens. I knew he'd get you killed sooner or later, and probably me too if I didn't clear out."
— to Palm, about Smolder (Darkness of Dragons, prologue)

"I didn't bring a prince or a secret potential heir to the throne into my hideout."
— to Palm, about Smolder (Darkness of Dragons, prologue)

"Smolder's probably already dead, [...] You'll never be able to go back to the palace. If Oasis doesn't get you, one of her daughters will."
— to Palm (Darkness of Dragons, prologue)

"For LIES! I'M NOT HER! THE QUEEN NEVER CAME! NO ONE EVER CAME! NO ONE SEES ME! SHE STOLE MY FACE! SHE THREW MY FACE INTO THE FIRE! I'M NOT HER!"

"You, [...] This is all your fault. Your earrings. Your fine words. Your stupid dragonet."
