Spoiler Alert!
This article contains plot details about the upcoming book, The Lost Continent. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.

Pantala, also known as the Lost Continent, is a location a few days flight (or swim) west of Pyrrhia mentioned in the second arc of the Wings of Fire series. At the Maynard book festival, Tui revealed that the map of Pantala also looks like a dragon and is facing Pyrrhia. Before, Pantala was thought to be too far away to fly to, but at the end of Darkness of Dragons, it was revealed that a dragon from Pantala had flown (or swam) to Pyrrhia, proving the theory to be wrong. It is mentioned that Clearsight, as a young dragonet, dreams about exploring and finding it. Ironically, she found the continent after the betrayal of Darkstalker. It has also been confirmed by Tui that the dragons from Pantala will be based off of insects, and this is mentioned by Hope in Darkness of Dragons. Hope tells Moonwatcher to research "the Legend of the Hive." She says it might give her ideas about the missing tribes, which also presented the idea of the Pantalan dragons living in hives rather than tribes. In the epilogue of the tenth book of this series (the second arc), Darkness of DragonsFoeslayer, known afterwards as Hope, showed Moonwatcher Pantala's position on the world, which was apparently on the opposite side on the world of where Pyrrhia was. 

Tribes Edit

As of January 5th, 2018, only one tribe name had been revealed: SilkWings.

Tui Sutherland has revealed that there are only three tribes on Pantala, with one of them thought to be extinct, most likely the new tribe HiveWings. (Due to the “Legend of the Hive.”)

At the Maynard Book Festival two new tribes have been revealed, HiveWings and LeafWings.

History Edit

Darkstalker (Legends) Edit

When Clearsight is at Darkstalker's house, she notices he has a scroll titled "Myths of the Lost Continent". Later, after betraying and imprisoning Darkstalker, Clearsight decides to go and find this lost continent. It is shown in Clearsight's visions to have animals she has never seen before and colorful dragons of unknown tribes, as well as a possibility of a new love and dragonets. Tui confirmed that Clearsight flew there.

Darkness of Dragons Edit

In the epilogue of Darkness of Dragons, Qibli and Moonwatcher find the residence of Jerboa, daughter of the original Jerboa, who was an animus. She shows them a dragon who she is taking care of. Qibli notices that the dragon looks nothing like "normal" dragons. He believes the dragon is a hybrid until he realizes that the mysterious dragon has no features of any of the seven dragon tribes. Jerboa says that this dragon is their first visitor from the Lost Continent.

TriviaEdit

  • Pantala is a genus of dragonflies, matching Pyrrhia being a genus of moth.
  • It has been confirmed by Tui that the Lost Continent is called Pantala by its inhabitants.
  • Pantala, like Pyrrhia, will be in the shape of a dragon.
  • It may be shaped like a new type of dragon, as Pyrrhia is shaped like a western dragon.
  • Tui has also stated that the arrival of Clearsight had a significant effect on the dragons that lived there. This impact is yet unknown. She married a dragon from Pantala called Sunstreak, and because she went to Pantala, we might meet one or more of her descendants.
  • It is shown in Darkstalker (Legends) that Pantala was known to dragons of Pyrrhia back then, but it appears that knowledge surrounding it has been lost over the centuries.
  • Tui has confirmed that Clearsight arriving at Pantala will be the prologue of Book 11, and it will feature new, unheard of tribes.
  • The tribes that inhabit Pantala have the suffix -"Wings" at the end of their names, similar to the Dragons of Pyrrhia.
  • Tui has confirmed that there will be no animus magic on Pantala, due to its extreme prevalence in the second arc.
  • Tui has said the tribes aren't in a good situation and have bad relations amongst themselves, but not necessarily war.
  • The purple-and-grey speckled wing in Burn's collection was from a Pantalan dragon.
  • The Legend of the Hive, a scroll mentioned by Hope in Darkness of Dragons, has something to do with Pantala.
  • The tribes there have queens.
  • Pantala has biomes that we haven't seen on Pyrrhia, such as that of the savannah-like biome seen on the The Lost Continent cover.
  • Tui will release one tribe at a time on the scholastic forums prior to its release date.
  • The Jade Winglet may go to Pantala.
  • Scavengers will probably play a role on Pantala.
  • One or more of the tribes may have four wings, as seen on the cover of The Lost Continent.
    • The SilkWings (or possibly other tribes) having two pairs of wings may be a reference to Pantala's name coming from a genus of dragonflies.
  • The first tribe to be released are the SilkWings which Tui announced on the Scholastic forums on her Q&A with Mike Holmes.
    • Tui also stated that there will be "Three new tribes (more or less)."
  • If the "extinct" tribe is truly extinct, it would be the first tribe to become extinct in the series.
  • Pantala and Pyrrhia could have been a supercontinent and broke off thousands of years ago, before the events of the Scorching.
    • The dragons of Pantala and Pyrrhia could have come from one ancestor while it was a supercontinent, and they evolved over time in a unique biome.
