Banana is a RainWing guard who was briefly mentioned in Winter Turning when Queen Glory mistook Heliconia for a dragon named Banana. It is unknown whether Glory had mistaken Heliconia for an actual RainWing or if it was just another name she made up at the time.
Glory stopped and tilted her head at the branches. "Banana?"
Winter frowned. "No, thank you."
But as he spoke, he noticed a shimmering in the air around the branch, and then all at once there was a dragon sitting there in a rather hideous shade of pink that Winter had never seen before.
"Actually, it's Heliconia, your majesty," said the RainWing. "But good guess."
(This is an excerpt from the book)
- A banana is a long curved fruit that grows in clusters and has soft pulpy flesh and yellow skin when ripe.
- It is also the tropical and subtropical treelike plant that bears this fruit. It has very large leaves and resembles a palm, but lacks a woody trunk.
- There are more than 1000 varieties of bananas, which are separated into 50 groups.
- Bananas can be green, yellow, red, brown or purple when ripe.
- Banana never makes a formal appearance in the book, only being mentioned.
- Banana may be one of Queen Glory's secret guards, perhaps confused with Heliconia.
- It is unknown if Banana even exists.
