This article contains plot details about the recently released book, Darkness of Dragons. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.
The winglets are not to be confused with the Wings of Fire: Winglets, which are short e-books in the series.
Jade Mountain Academy was founded by the Dragonets of Destiny after the War of the SandWing Succession. It is an inter-tribal school located in the tallest mountain in Pyrrhia, Jade Mountain, in the southern half of the Claws of the Clouds Mountains in the Sky Kingdom. The Academy is divided into five winglets: the Jade Winglet, the Gold Winglet, the Silver Winglet, the Copper Winglet, and the Quartz Winglet, each containing a dragonet from each of the seven dragon tribes. Groups of two or three dragonets from a winglet share a cave, making them clawmates. Stonemover, Sunny's father, lives in a cave deep in the mountain, slowly turning to stone.

The Founders and Staff Edit
Clay is the prey area overseer, nurse, and teacher of Herbs and Healing.
Tsunami is head of school.
Starflight is the librarian.
Sunny is the main founder.
Webs is the history teacher.
Fatespeaker is Starflight's assistant.
The Library Edit
The entrance, as described by Moonwatcher, starts off as a side corridor lined with hanging scrolls. Many of them have quotes on the such as "Knowledge is a flame in the darkness" and "The claws of war are no match for the wings of wisdom." At the end, a room full of iridescent green sunlight is present. Scrolls were everywhere, in cubbyholes on the walls, racks, and cylinders around the cave. Every corner had a spot to curl up and read in, sometimes a rock ledge, sometimes a pile of mosses and sometimes carpets. Sunlight came down from skylights in the roof and filtered through leaves covering the windows. There's a circular wooden desk labeled 'LIBRARIAN' in the center where Starflight manages the scrolls.
The Prey Center Edit
The prey center, which Clay set up, was often described as chaotic. This is because students were everywhere catching prey or eating. This was one of the main places where Moonwatcher's head hurt the most but luckily Darkstalker taught her how to stop this. Moon meets Winter and Qibli for the first time there after Qibli released Winter's pet scavenger, Bandit, that many dragons tried to catch and eat.
Taught by Webs, this class is meant to teach indepth the history of Pyrrhia to attending students. The class is structured in units, with the first unit being The Scorching and going chronologically throughout history afterward. The next known unit is 500 years after the Scorching, which is described as a rather chaotic time period.
Herbs and Healing Edit
Suggested by Peregrine and Tamarin, this class, taught by Clay, is meant to teach the basics of healing to students. The class is shown to outline dragon anatomy to students as a basis for learning proper technique, and presumably teaches some botany as "herbs" is in the title.
While not an official class, there is a music cave which dragonets visit as a part of their schedule to learn to play different instruments from across Pyrrhia through their own intuition.
Though the official name of this class isn't well known, nor is it known if this class even still exists, homeroom is lead by Tsunami and is meant as a sort of bonding area for the dragonets within a Winglet to become closer.
- Jade Mountain Academy is the first known school where dragons of all tribes are taught together.
- It currently houses most of the dragonets of destiny.
- Books six through ten focus on the Jade Winglet.
- Anemone, Turtle, Onyx, Icicle, and Winter are the only known royal figures in the winglets.
