Soar is a "mask", taking the form of a male SkyWing, and one of the four known forms Chameleon can become. When Scarlet caught him shape shifting, she gave him the choice to either tell her how he did it, or work for her in exchange for treasure. He chose the second option, afraid that if he revealed the scroll he used, she would take it from him. He is the "father" of Peril, and his former mate was Kestrel. Since Chameleon was in the form of Soar when he had Peril with Kestrel, Peril is fully SkyWing, and not any part RainWing. This makes Peril half an artificial SkyWing.
Soar is described as big with amber eyes, warm orange scales, rippling muscles, and huge powerful orange wings. He doesn't bear any scars, which is observed by Peril to be unusual for a dragon under Scarlet's reign (his forms, when switched, lose their injuries therefore he has no scars). He is said to be strong-looking, and has a deeper, stronger voice than Chameleon. He has long horns with golden markings. He is adorned with gold rings on three of his claws, a black necklace with gold spikes studded on, and a snake-like armband with rubies where a snake's eyes would be. He also has a black metal sheath fitted across his chest with a padlock, which was revealed to hold Darkstalker's Talisman scraps in them to shapeshift.
Chameleon's SkyWing shape first appears in Escaping Peril. When Peril waits out by Possibility while Turtle and the rest of his group check on the injured Kinkajou. Peril sees Soar flying to her from a distance, but he abruptly flees when he sees Winter and Foeslayer arrive. After the fight with Winter, and Peril runs away and runs into Soar. Soar confirms to her that she is his daughter, and then leads Peril to Ex-Queen Scarlet. Scarlet then rips off his necklace holding the piece of Darkstalker's Scroll inside, and transforming him back into his RainWing self.
After Peril is brainwashed into obeying Scarlet, Chameleon uses his Soar shape again so the three of them can get into Queen Ruby's Palace without any confusion. Soar, Scarlet and Peril wait in the throne room for Ruby to arrive, and spend the night there. After she comes, Scarlet imprisons her and orders her son, Prince Cliff, on the highest tower in the palace with Soar and Peril guarding it. There, Soar and Peril have a emotional conversation about themselves, and Soar lets her in on the secret about the scroll. After Cliff escapes, Peril and Soar fly after him. Soar witness's the whole scene where Ruby escapes the prison, Peril takes off her necklace and is no longer brainwashed, and Ruby challenges Scarlet to the throne of the SkyWings.
Chameleon stays in his SkyWing shape for the entire Royal Challenge. He spills the beans to Peril that Ruby is enchanted to be a weaker, less strong SkyWing daughter than she originally was, and she couldn't win the fight after Peril threatens him. This fact saves Ruby's life, and kills Queen Scarlet. After Scarlet's death, Soar gives up his scroll to Ruby and is imprisoned. He then transforms into Shapeshifter and steals it back.
Though Peril is his daughter, it is unknown if Soar actually holds any affection for her. Though Soar offered to take away Peril's firescales, he appeared to have only done this on Scarlet's orders. However, when he ran away, he asked Peril to come with him. In Darkness of Dragons, while in his Shapeshifter form, he was furious with her for stealing his scroll but decides to accept an earring that Qibli made.
Soar, as Chameleon (and various other forms), worked as Ex-Queen Scarlet's minion. He doesn't particularly like her, only the fact that she pays him well.
Kestrel was Soar's mate, and together, they had one egg that contained two dragonets, one of which died. He claimed he was not around when Kestrel tried to escape with their dragonets, and had thought that Peril was dead. It is implied that Soar used his position under Scarlet to arrange for Kestrel to be his mate without her knowing.
