Reed

Reed is a brown MudWing with golden amber eyes and is one of Clay's younger brothers, slightly smaller than him. He is the second-eldest of Cattail's seven dragonets. After his first battle, he claimed "He wasn't the bigwings he wanted to be" and seemingly tries hard to protect his brothers and sisters, but has become uncertain of himself after learning Clay was alive and well. He often wonders what Clay would do in some situations. He wonders if Clay should've beven the bigwings instead of him.

Biography

Pre-Series

Reed hatched along with Sora, Pheasant, Umber, Crane, and Marsh. Clay had been sold to the Talons of Peace in exchange for two or more cows, which left Reed compelled to take over as the Bigwings of the group. Over time, the remaining siblings grew to respect him, thinking him to be the true BigWings.

The Dragonet Prophecy

When Clay returned, Reed and the other siblings began to tell him about the MudWing traditions and helped him make peace with himself. The others, including Reed, wanted Clay to stay, but Clay said that he needed to fulfill the prophecy. They all wanted Clay to stay and even Reed offered Clay his job of becoming their bigwings, but Clay declined the offer, as he knew that Reed would be a better bigwings than he would as Reed's siblings trusted him more. Therefore he left with Glory after their short meeting. Reed was described as looking shocked and relieved at the same time. Reluctantly, Reed and his siblings let Clay go.

The Dark Secret

After meeting Clay, Reed is left wondering whether the older dragonet could have done a better job protecting the group. He starts to believe that Clay could have saved Crane, and that the others would prefer him instead. His low self-esteem makes him worried and sometimes distracted.

He and his siblings also participated in a losing battle against the IceWings, in which they retreated. They then debated on joining the Talons of Peace.

The Brightest Night

Reed and his siblings are seen when Sunny and Clay go to the MudWings to send a message to Burn. Reed is wary to go along with the MudWings' planned attack on the IceWings, and he worries that he will lose his only family.

In the epilogue, Clay suggests that Reed and his siblings attend the Jade Mountain Academy school.

"And as long as the SeaWings are still in hiding, she can focus all her energy on the Ice Kingdom. On destroying them."--Reed thinking of Clay fulfilling the prophecy along with the other Dragonets of Destiny
