"Your Majesty, the facts are clear. You gave an order. Kestrel disobeyed you and fled the kingdom. She has been living under your mountains for the last seven years, aiding and abetting the Talons of Peace, who also refuse to follow Your Majesty's orders. She deserves a long, painful execution. There is no need to drag this trial out."
—Vermilion, doing his duty as persecutor during Kestrel's trial in The Dragonet Prophecy.


Prince Vermilion is a bright red SkyWing prince and the brother of Princess Tourmaline/Queen Ruby, Hawk, two unnamed brothers, and eleven unnamed sisters who were killed off over the years in royal challenges against their now deceased mother Ex-Queen Scarlet. He was the announcer of the SkyWing arena matches and the prosecutor during trials. He is also mentioned in letters in the last pages of Winter Turning and the collector's edition of The Brightest Night, in which Smolder tells him how to care for a pet scavenger. It is likely that he's planning to get one of his own, like Smolder's pet Scavenger Flower, and Winter's pet Scavenger Bandit.

AppearanceEdit

Vermilion's scales are a vibrant red[2], like the hue he was named after, and he has blood-red wings[3].

BiographyEdit

The Dragonet ProphecyEdit

Vermilion, although unnamed at the time, was the announcer for the fight between Horizon and Peril. After that, he announced the fight between Clay and Fjord. Later on, Vermilion stood as the prosecutor during Kestrel's trial. The next day, he announced the battles for his mother's hatching day. Tsunami attempted to attack him before her fight with Gill, although her chains kept her from fightin him.

The Brightest NightEdit

A letter from Smolder to Vermilion about his pet scavenger, Flower, and how to take care for one is featured at the end of the Collector's Edition. The letter explained how to protect your scavenger, as someone would eat it "by accident", to protect your belongings because it would try to make little things out of the cloth, what to feed it and to supply water daily. Smolder ends the letter wanting Vermilion to send him a picture of his when he got it, and comments on the picture Flower drew of him and her.

Winter Turning Edit

The same letter that's featured in the Collector's Edition of The Brightest Night is also at the end of Winter Turning, talking about how to raise a pet scavenger.

Escaping Peril Edit

In this book, Vermilion was shown as a loyal supporter of the new SkyWing queen, Queen Ruby. Scarlet finds him and questions him about what happened since she "left the Kingdom". To her outrage, Vermilion replies that Ruby used almost all the SkyWing treasure to transform the SkyWing Arena into a hospital for dragons that were injured during the war, hiring dragons from all different tribes to teach and assist her healers in helping heal injured dragons. He is also accused of liking Ruby more than Scarlet, which is true and is forced to help Peril (who was under a spell at the time) take Prince Cliff into custody and guard him.

Personality Edit

Vermilion was shown to be a former loyal supporter to Scarlet, but he turned to Ruby and supported her when he realized that she truly was a better SkyWing queen. Vermilion also seems to have quite a lot of interests, from being an announcer in the SkyWing Arena, a prosecutor, and possibly owning a pet scavenger.

TriviaEdit

  • Vermilion is brilliant/scarlet red that comes from the mineral cinnabar.
  • 'Vermillion' is a common spelling mistake, but the correct spelling only has one "l".
  • It was revealed in The Brightest Night Collector's Edition and Winter Turning that Vermilion was considering having a scavenger as a pet like Smolder does.
  • It appears that Vermilion is a much more caring dragon than he appeared in The Dragonet Prophecy, probably made mean by Queen Scarlet. His caring is shown in his appeal and interest in scavengers.
  • Vermillion was Scarlet's first known son.
  • Vermilion has 12 sisters
