Official Description

"Watch the skies, Vikings! These diminutive dive-bombers retreat to their larger dragon cousin's wings when they feel overpowered!
The Small Shadow might hunt in packs, but it's still a fearsome foe in 1-on-1 combat. It's agile, intelligent, and unerring in aim.

Small Shadows are medium-sized dragons with iridescent blue and purple scales and wings, as well as light undersides. They have rounded heads, triangular fin-like spines on their backs and tails, with long, black claws on their feet.

Titan Wing

The Titan Small Shadow is extremely brightly coloured, with almost all colours of a rainbow. It is mostly red, but sports orange scales and its scales recede to a yellow, green and blue shade towards its legs, edges of its wings and rear. Its claws are bigger. It has more triangular spikes on the tail. It now has small spikes on its back legs.


Small Shadows are pack hunters that are highly intelligent. One dragon pretends to be injured to attract any potential victims while the rest wait to ambush. They have formed a symbiotic relationship with the much larger Shadow Wing. The Small Shadows serve the Shadow Wing, and the Shadow Wing protects the Small Shadows in return.
