During Runaway, she admits that she brought Foeslayer along on the diplomatic trip to the Ice Kingdom so that she would fall in love with Prince Arctic and have his dragonets, bringing animus powers to the NightWings. This shows that she thinks lowly of Foeslayer, saying that she would be the only NightWing "stupid" enough to do it since she knew that her daughter would be the kind of dragon to betray their tribe, and that she is generally cruel and manipulative when it comes to the future of the Nightwing tribe.
Prudence is also mentioned in Darkstalker (Legends), although not by name, when Darkstalker reveals to his family that he is an animus. Foeslayer, after that announcement, shakes her head and says that her mother (Prudence) would be pleased.
In Runaway, Prudence is one of the four dragons, including her daughter, who went on the diplomatic trip to the Ice Kingdom.
Prudence attempts to take off Foeslayer's animus enchanted diamond earring, but Prince Arctic quickly makes up an excuse, telling her that it's a diplomatic gift that would be rude to decline.
She is, at one point, "frozen" by Prince Arctic with his enchanted dagger and then unfrozen. She agrees to escape with Arctic and Foeslayer from the IceWings along with Starclaws and Discretion after being threatened by Arctic.

"Foeslayer, you are driving me mad. Either sit in a corner and read or help me pack. If I hear your claws squeaking back and forth on the ice one more time, I'll remove them and give them to the library as quills."
"Of course I knew. Why do you think I brought you in the first place? You're the only NightWing in the tribe who would do something this idiotic, and I had a feeling you'd catch the prince's eye. But I didn't think he was as big an idiot as you are. I thought he had some loyalty to his tribe. Some sense of right and wrong. Young dragons are so useless. All I can say is you'd better have dragonets fast, Foeslayer. As many as possible, so our tribe can inherit animus magic and make this whole disaster worthwhile."
- Prudence means the quality of being prudent, or acting with or showing care towards and thought for the future.
- Prudence is technically the reason the NightWings have animus magic, because in Runaway, it is explained that she wanted Foeslayer to fall in love with Arctic so that the NightWings would get animus magic.
