Official descriptions[]


This plain blue egg almost seems to float.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It never seems to touch the ground.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It never seems to touch the ground.

And look! Its wings have grown larger! It must be close to maturing.


Skystrider Dragons are known for almost never leaving the air as they have no other means of defense if attacked. The main exception to this rule is when they nest in the branches of ancient trees to sleep. This airborne tendency can make raising and keeping Skystrider Dragons an extra challenge. Males have a row of poisonous spines along their backs while females have a venomous bite. Skystrider Dragons mostly prey on birds and flying insects, leading their presence to be welcomed by farmers who often leave out treats hoping to lure a group nearby.

Additional Information[]

It’s an intentional dimorphic difference just like the spikes where it splits under the first wing and goes over the back. There should perhaps be a second split leading to the other side but it looked weirdly straight during production.

Glad the change helped clear up the confusion. Fun fact I originally wanted to call them Skywalker, but I figured Disney might not be too happy. Plus Skystrider sounds cooler.
