Physical Description[edit]

Rainwings are large, colorful dragons that spit acid. If that wasn't frightening enough, they also have a habit of changing their scale's colors to either match their emotions or their environment, making them very powerful assassins, being able to melt them without a trace and attack from nowhere right out in the open in broad daylight.


In the past, RainWings were ruled by the RainWing royal family, but since all of Queen Grandeur's heirs were deemed unworthy of the throne, Grandeur merged her eggs with those of the tribe in hopes of finding a leader in spirit rather than blood. Grandeur's solution proved to be rather unsuccessful, as although Grandeur did eventually find volunteers, they were lazy, unsuccessful, and often selfish in their reigns. Grandeur decided that it would be the best for the tribe if each new ruler, including herself, was only to reign for one month at a time. Queen Glory is currently the ruler of the RainWing Kingdom.


RainWings tend to be pacifists who typically don't rush into fights, as shown when the NightWings captured them and experimented on their venom, although they likely have not always been this way. Instead of having a palace, like most tribes, the RainWing queen resides in an ordinary-sized hut usually decorated with flowers that other dragons can visit her in. They will line up and wait when they want to talk to the queen about something. Although RainWings are peaceful dragons, there could have been a time where RainWings were at war with another tribe, due to Grandeur hinting to Glory that she remembers when they used their camouflage to hide from enemies. In Darkstalker (Legends), Queen Lagoon said, "If we find another animus in the tribe, that would make us twice as powerful, which would be quite useful given how the MudWings and RainWings have been behaving lately.", implying that they once weren't the lazy, happy tribe they are considered to be now, although Queen Glory and some other RainWings have proven that not all current RainWings are as lazy as they seem. Queen Glory is queen of the RainWings and the NightWings.
