The Dragonet Prophecy

Rowan, along with Cranberry, Cardinal, and Arbutus were the scavengers who fought Tsunami and Starflight in the SkyWing Arena. She was one of the two female scavengers to survive the fight. Cranberry also mentions how great Rowan was in the arena.



Rowan first appears when Leaf is arguing with his parents about where Wren went, occasionally breaking into the conversation. Eventually, she tells him about the Dragonslayer, who she heard about from her friend Grove. Leaf gets excited and wants to become a dragonslayer to avenge Wren, but their parents forbid them from doing so. However, at school, Rowan secretly teaches Leaf what she knows about dragonslaying, as long as Leaf keeps it secret. Eventually, she gets captured by the SkyWings along with Leaf while trying to catch Mushroom. Rowan, however, has been hiding a terrible secret from Leaf - one that has haunted her ever since Wren disappeared. Rowan knows it was not the dragons' fault and that Wren was sacrificed by the dragonmancers. Rowan knows that it was her fault. 


"I think Leaf should know about the Dragonslayer, that's all."
— to her parents (Dragonslayer, page 32)

"Well, if you're really going to slay a dragon one day, you'll probably need to practice a little, first."
— to Leaf (Dragonslayer, page 67)

"I'm going to train you to be a great warrior, [...] but only if you promise not to tell Mother and Father. As far as they know, we're studying for our dragonmancer exams."
— to Leaf (Dragonslayer, page 68)

"Rule number one, [...] Don't shout like a maniac and warn the dragon you're about to attack. I mean, seriously."
— to Leaf (Dragonslayer, page 67)

"But that's not all you'd learn, [...] You could find out all their secrets!"
— to Leaf (Dragonslayer, page 73)

"You wouldn't have to be, [...] Get in there, put your head down and pretend, and learn everything they know-- like what happened to most of their apprentices, and how their visions work, and why they have forbidden anyone to go try to steal treasure? And then tell me everything, and we'll use their knowledge to go kill all the dragons!"
— to Leaf (Dragonslayer, page 67)

"I tried, actually, [...] Last year. They said I failed the tests. But I have a theory it's not about the test scores-- it's about who they trust."
— to Leaf (Dragonslayer, page 67)
