The Outclaws are a group of dragons led by Queen Thorn, who later becomes the queen of the SandWings at the end of The Brightest Night. They live in the Scorpion Den, even though they have other secret dens scattered around the kingdom. The town is mostly populated by SandWings, but a few SkyWings and IceWings have been seen in the den, where the Outclaws hide from the effects of the war. This is also where Sunny would have grown up, if Dune hadn't tricked Thorn and taken her egg.
The Outclaws are very loyal to Thorn, shown by Qibli and the others who would follow her. Qibli showed to be very protective of their leader and said that there were others behind him who would make Sunny sorry, if she was tricking Thorn.
The Outclaws try to feed all dragonets in the Scorpion Den to prevent starvation. To create peace and order, Thorn took over the oasis and with the water, restored order, and regularly distributed it amongst everyone. The Outclaws also take from the rich and give to the poor. They make sure that the Scorpion Den doesn't dissolve into fighting and blood, as it once was before.
However, it is clear many living in the Scorpion Den do not trust Thorn and the Outclaws, as shown when one mother refused to let them feed her dragonet because she thought that it was just a ploy to recruit dragons for the war, letting it become skinny and frail. Other dragons fear them, as they quickly disappeared at the appearance of Six-Claws.
It is thought that the Outclaws were founded around seven or six years ago, counting from the events in The Brightest Night.

The Brightest NightEdit
Sunny followed Preyhunter, Fierceteeth, and Strongwings, to the Scorpion Den, leading her to the Outclaws. She met up with Six-Claws, who brought her to Thorn, and caught a glimpse of what the life in the city was like on the way.
When Sunny was captured by Addax and sent to Burn's stronghold, the Outclaws came to rescue her. They were fighting a losing battle, and Sunny begged Peril to stop the fight. After doing so, Sunny met up with Thorn and parted ways; Thorn and her Outclaws went back to the Scorpion Den and Sunny first went to Jade Mountain so she could see her father, Stonemover, then to the Rainforest Kingdom, after a short detour.
