SeaWings, also known as sea dragons or ocean dragons to humans, are a Pyrrhian tribe of dragons that currently reside in the Kingdom of the Sea. They are currently ruled by Queen Coral, and typically speak both Aquatic and Dragon.

The SeaWings were allied with Blister during the War of SandWing Succession until the bombing of the Summer Palace, which caused them to flee to the Deep Palace. They were previously allied with the MudWings until the assassination of Commander Tempest. In the time of Darkstalker, they had an Island Palace for diplomatic meetings and parties with dragons from other tribes, which was abandoned after the Royal SeaWing Massacre.

Description

SeaWings are considered short in height[1] and have long, compact bodies with short legs. They have curved horns, a slender, curved snout, and two barbels on the underside of their jaw. Their tongues can be forked or unforked. They have webbed spines along the backs of their necks to the tips of their tails, as well as on their chests. SeaWings have webbed talons with hooked claws, as well as long, powerful tails. They have gills on the sides of their necks that allow them to breathe underwater.[2]

The royal SeaWing pattern of glowing stripes as shown on Tsunami in The Lost Heir (graphic novel)

SeaWings commonly have scale colors in the ranges of blues and greens, including indigo,[3] green-gray,[4] blue-gray,[5] and blue-green.[6] Although rare, dragons may have pink[7] or yellow-green scales and/or webbing membranes.[8] Black spiraling patterns, like those shown in Nautilus, may also be present. In the sunlight, their scales may look like glossy emeralds and sapphires.[9] SeaWings usually have eyes that are some shade of blue or green.

SeaWings have glowing stripes along their faces, bodies, and wings. Members of the royal family have glowing spiral and starburst markings on the undersides of their wings, while most non-royal SeaWings have smaller starbursts and no spiral patterns.[10]

SeaWing eggs are green or blue, have striped or swirl-like patterns,[11] and are kept underwater in warm hatcheries,[12] as warmth (especially right before hatching) is important.[13] They are heavy, particularly soon before they hatch.[14]

Diet

SeaWings mainly eat raw fish and other aquatic creatures such as whales, octopi, turtles, and sea snails,[15] while lower class SeaWings eat eels, though this is stated insultingly.[16] SeaWings may also prepare soup,[17] stew, and roasted seagull, usually for guests from other tribes.[17][18]

In the time of Darkstalker, royal SeaWings prepared coconut rice, tuna rolls, macadamia treats, and a mango-lime drink.[19] Humpback stated that many years prior, dragons in his timeline ate scavenger sashimi every afternoon.[20] Fathom mentioned that SeaWings sometimes consume sharks, though dragonets are taught to be careful of them until they are full-grown.[21]

Coral has forbidden the consumption of dolphins because she believes that they might be distantly related to dragons.[22]

Abilities

SeaWings have gills, exceptional night vision,[23] and powerful tails. They are able to breathe and see underwater and use their tails, wings, and webbed talons to swim.[24][25] Their claws are curved like fishhooks,[26] and their tails can be used to batter opponents or create huge waves.[27] SeaWings often ride currents to travel the ocean faster,[28] and they prefer to alternate swimming and flying when traveling long distances.[29] Physical wounds, such as burns, can be healed by ocean water.[30]

The bioluminescent stripes on a SeaWing's body are used to converse underwater,[31] as well as to attract partners.[32] They can control when the stripes on their bodies glow, and can light up each one individually. Different combinations of stripes indicate different words in Aquatic.

Gill dehydrated and unstable from The Dragonet Prophecy (graphic novel), by Mike Holmes

SeaWings can be driven mad if dehydrated from water.[33] Dehydrated SeaWings appear insane and have barely any consciousness to what they do in the period.

Animus magic

Animus magic is present in the SeaWing royal bloodline.[34] There are no rules on how much magic a SeaWing can use, and animus dragons are often controlled closely by the queen of the tribe.[35][36] Animus magic was the origin of the Royal SeaWing Massacre, after which an unsuccessful attempt was made to wipe animus magic from the tribe's bloodline and make its use illegal in the Kingdom of the Sea.[37]

Society

SeaWings are regarded as intelligent and artistic.[citation needed] They also historically used boats.[38] Citizen duties include kitchen work and enlistment in the army.[39]

Coral is a writer whose scrolls are required reading in SeaWing schools, even those that are not of the best quality.[40] Guards have been shown to salute to her,[41] and most of her subjects regard her as a good queen.[42]


The Summer Palace, before its destruction, utilized an advance guard. It was a troop consisted of at least fifteen soldiers, whose duty was to keep intruders away from the palace.[43]

In modern Pyrrhia, most SeaWing citizens appear well fed, well rested, and content.[44] The queen utilizes a Council consisted of selected Council members and members of the royal SeaWing family. The Council has frequent meetings.[45]

Names

SeaWings may be named after sea-related objects or wildlife, examples being Nautilus, Anemone, Orca, Shark, Snail, and Turtle. They may also have names related to shades of aquamarine colors such as Cerulean and Indigo. Some share the names of gemstones, such as Sapphire. They may also have names relating to aquatic anatomies, like Fin, Gill, and Webs, or naturally-occurring oceanic phenomenons, such as Current, Tsunami, Typhoon, Riptide, and Whirlpool.
