Hvitur was a pale moon-silver IceWing with arctic blue eyes, the first dragon to appear in the series, the first guardian seen, and the first IceWing seen, and the first dragon to die in the series. He was killed by Burn when trying to deliver the SkyWing egg.
Kestrel was a large SkyWing with jewel-hard, rust-colored scales with burn scars on her talons from her attempt to save her daughter, Peril, and orange-yellow eyes. She was a former SkyWing soldier serving Queen Scarlet before joining the Talons of Peace. Kestrel was later murdered by Blister and Morrowseer on an island in the Bay of a Thousand Scales. She was the most strict and sometimes cruelest minder. She is also the mother of Peril and an unnamed male dragonet (deceased)
Webs is a blue-green SeaWing that stole Tsunami's egg from the Royal Hatchery, and was forced to flee the Kingdom of the Sea. When Hvitur failed his job to get the SkyWing egg, Webs went to the Rainforest Kingdom to get a RainWing that turned out to be Glory. According to Tsunami in The Lost Heir, he was the kindest and should have "protected them better". He is still alive as of Talons of Power, and is a history teacher at the Jade Mountain Academy.
Dune was a pale gold male maimed SandWing soldier with a missing foreleg and maimed wings, which made him unable to fly, who fled to the Scorpion Den. He was wanted by Thorn for stealing an egg that she hid, which turned out to be Sunny, and was brutally killed by Queen Scarlet upon her initial discovery of the dragonets of destiny.
Asha was a MudWing soldier and Clay's aunt. She was caught in a battle between Blaze and Blister's forces while delivering Clay's egg to the Talons of Peace and died of her wounds shortly after arriving.
The guardians were charged with the kidnapping, protection, upbringing, educating, and all around caring for the dragonets of destiny. They were located in a cave system under a mountain in the Sky Kingdom. Each of the guardians was from a different tribe who no longer paid allegiance to their queens but to the Talons of Peace and Morrowseer, the NightWing who had delivered the prophecy.
The dragonets at times held deep grudges towards their guardians for the strict lectures and confinement within the caves. Webs had been more gentle towards them, Dune rejected Glory but appeared indifferent to the rest, although he cared more for Sunny given her "disabilities". Kestrel was the most despised by the dragonets for her ferocity and bad temper, though this can be attributed to her past.
Clay's egg was purchased by Asha, his aunt, for two or more cows.
Tsunami's egg was stolen from the Royal Hatchery by Webs.

Dune was killed by Queen Scarlet in the process of the dragonets' escape from the caves.
Kestrel was captured by Scarlet and scheduled to be put on trial and executed but was rescued by the dragonets and her daughter, Peril.

Kestrel was found dead by a SeaWing patrol.
