The Dragonets of Destiny were dragonets (young dragons), chosen by a prophecy to end the War of SandWing Succession. As stated by the Dragonet Prophecy, they all hatched together on the brightest night. However, in the end of The Dark Secret, the dragonets learn that the prophecy was fake, invented by the NightWing named Morrowseer as a plot to gain power and to take over the Rainforest Kingdom. The prophecy called for a MudWing, a SkyWing, a SeaWing, a NightWing, and a SandWing. However, the guardians failed to retrieve the SkyWing egg and lost the IceWing guardian, Hvitur, in the process because of Burn. Webs was convinced that the prophecy needed five dragonets, so he went to the Rainforest Kingdom and stole a RainWing egg, who were completely unaware that they were missing an egg or that there was a prophecy at all. There was no IceWing egg due to the constant grudge the NightWings and IceWings hold against each other. The real five were almost replaced by the backup five "False Dragonets", due to Morrowseer having his plans crumble, but the original dragonets were able to fulfill their own "destiny".
Clay was the MudWing dragonet of destiny, he is shown to be loyal and kind and treats his friends like he would to his group of siblings. On the brightest night while they were hatching, Clay had natural MudWing bigwing instincts to help other eggs in the clutch hatch. This was misinterpreted as an attack on the other eggs, and this was a story Kestrel used this against him in battle training, saying that he was a monster as a hatchling, in hopes that she could bring out this "inner monster" to improve Clay's capability in battle. The prophecy called for a MudWing egg "the color of dragon blood", blood eggs are known to produce dragons that are fire resistant, and Clay is one of them. A fire-scales SkyWing named Peril is in love with him, and In Darkness of Dragons, it is shown Clay might return these feelings. Clay is the protagonist of The Dragonet Prophecy.
Tsunami was the 'SeaWing egg of deepest blue'. She sometimes appears to be the leader of the dragonets, being fierce, bold, and loyal. She has exceptional battle skills and tends to bicker with her friends. She is the daughter of Queen Coral and is therefore a princess. She is the protagonist of The Lost Heir. Tsunami is the oldest living daughter of Queen Coral, with two little sisters, Anemone and Auklet, and thirty-two brothers, including Turtle. She is the first SeaWing princess not to be born in the royal hatchery. She seems to have a crush on Riptide, who is the current leader of the Talons of Peace. It seems Riptide returns these feelings.
When Burn tossed the prophesized SkyWing dragonet's egg off a cliff, Webs stole Glory's egg from the Rainforest Kingdom, insisting that the prophecy must have five dragonets. She is bullied and abused by two of the three guardians, due to the popular belief that RainWings were much lazier than any other dragon tribe. Glory later became the queen of the NightWings and RainWings. She is in a romantic relationship with Deathbringer, a former NightWing assassin. She discovers that Jambu is her brother after deciding that he is "the most useless dragon I've ever met", and becomes queen when she challenges the current queens (at the time), and discovers that Ex-Queen Grandeur is her relative. She is smart, beautiful (according to Deathbringer and others), brave, hardworking and most unlike the rest of her tribe. Glory is the protagonist of The Hidden Kingdom.
Starflight is the NightWing dragonet of the prophecy, he is shown to have a lot of book-smarts but very little combat skills. If he had hatched under the moons during the brightest night then he would have had mind reading and be able to see the future. However, he hatched beneath the mountain, with the other dragonets, away from the moons depriving him of those powers. Though at first he had a crush on Sunny, Starflight now appears to be approaching a relationship with the False NightWing Dragonet of Destiny named Fatespeaker. He often had dreams about the NightWing Queen calling him "useless" and "not a real NightWing", as Morrowseer stated before dying or going missing in the Night Kingdom's volcanic explosion. Also, in the same explosion, Starflight was blinded and is now having trouble with not being able to see. Starflight is the protagonist of The Dark Secret.
Sunny was the SandWing dragonet of the prophecy. Unlike other SandWings, Sunny is golden, with green-grey eyes, and no poisonous tail barb. The reason for these abnormalities is that Sunny's father Stonemover is a NightWing. She is shown to be optimistic and kind, and most of the other dragonets think if her as a little sister since she hatched last. She is the daughter of Queen Thorn and Stonemover, making her a princess, a hybrid, and having a possibility of passing on animus powers to any children she may have due to Stonemover being an animus. Sunny is the protagonist of The Brightest Night. Sunny was the dragon that thought of the plan to make Burn, Blaze, and Blister come together. Blister gave Burn a dragonbite viper. Burn was bitten instanty by the second one. Blister was murdered by the Eye of Onyx. Blaze accepted Thorn as the new queen.
- All of the female dragonets of destiny are royal.
- Glory is not part of the original prophecy as she is a RainWing, but she helped end the war anyway.
- Sunny is the only hybrid of the Dragonets of Destiny.
- They are also the founders of Jade Mountain Academy
- None of the dragonets are named after living things, unless you count Glory as (possibly) being named after the flower, Morning Glory.
