This article contains plot details about the upcoming book, Darkness of Dragons. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.
Prince Narwhal is a male IceWing prince and brother to Queen Glacier. A character solely featured in Winter Turning, he is the father of Winter, Icicle, and Hailstorm, as well as the husband to Tundra. Narwhal seems to be trusted with the kingdom, as Queen Glacier put him in charge while she was in the rainforest. He also appears to be quite clever, ambitious, and power-hungry; he seems to know exactly what to do to get what he wants. Not much is known about his appearance, but he was noted to have a long snout and blue eyes.
In a flashback, Narwhal, Tundra, Winter, Icicle, Hailstorm, three attendants, and one of Winter's uncles were all a part of a hunting party for the dining table of Queen Glacier herself. As Winter is distracted during the hunt while a mother polar bear and her cubs are in clear sight, Narwhal wings out of the sky with his wife and brother. When Winter fails to catch the bear, he furiously roars at his son, demanding to know how he could have let the bear get away.
Later, after Winter and Hailstorm return to the Ice Kingdom, he announces that Hailstorm has returned and surprisingly puts Hailstorm at the bottom of the Seventh Circle, and even more surprisingly he puts Winter at the top of the First Circle. This was a well-executed plan that made sure that Hailstorm would perform the Diamond Trial so that either way they would have a dragonet on top in the first circle.
He is mentioned to have caught the plague, and that his condition is worsening, as told to Hailstorm by the IceWing messenger. Tundra, his wife, also caught the plague.
Narwhal is shown with his son Hailstorm and his niece Snowfall demanding that the Jade Mountain Academy staff tell them where Darkstalker is. Winter appears and Narwhal is shown rather shocked that his son is alive, sure he had sent him to his death. The "reunion" does not last long, as NightWing scouts appear and start a fight, killing Narwhal.
Hailstorm and Winter are shown briefly grieving over their father before leaping into battle.

“Ssso. My two sons have returned to me. One I thought could never come back—the other I hoped never would.” – To Winter and Hailstorm.
"Therefore he must be added back into the rankings." - Narwhal during the dragonets ranking ceremony.
"Whichever of you does not return, I know you will accept defeat with honor." - At the start of the Diamond Trial.
- A Narwhal is a medium-sized toothed whale that possesses a large tusk from a protruding canine tooth. It lives in the arctic waters of Greenland, Canada, and Russia.
- Winter said that Narwhal's outward demeanor was pretty much the same whether he was proud or furious.
- Narwhal does not seem to like Winter, as shown by the fact that he tries to eliminate him with the Diamond Trial, and due to how he has failed to get into the First Circle before the events of Winter Turning.
- Prince Arctic also had the same feelings about Darkstalker being his son, however this is only because Arctic went mad from using too much animus power.
- He is one of the five IceWings confirmed to have caught the plague.
