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.
Vulture is a male SandWing that appears in Darkness of Dragons. He is the grandfather to Qibli, Rattlesnake, and Sirocco, and father to Cobra. He is the leader of the Talons of Power, a cult who wants to overthrow Queen Thorn. The Talons of Power have been setting bombs off across Pyrrhia, and he blames the MudWings, bribing a MudWing named Bog to lie for him and say his tribe did it.
Vulture has pale yellow scales, with dragon skull tattoos all over his body, making him look like a leopard from a distance. He has a hooked snout, likely a source of his name, and his black eyes look like holes and have gold rings in them like the Eye of Onyx itself. His barb, talons, and claws are dipped in gold leaf, and he wears several accessories, including enormous black and gold spider-shaped earrings, a black cape lined with gold, and draped gold chains all along his wings.
Vulture appears in Darkness of Dragons, working with Onyx. He keeps Ostrich as a hostage so him and Onyx can get to Six-Claws, Thorn's highest ranking general, then overthrow Thorn herself. He imprisons Qibli, Cobra, Winter, and Ostrich together, then tries to force Qibli to write down all of Thorn's secrets on a scroll. Qibli stalls, and the four of them escape.
Later, Vulture bombs the SandWing Stronghold, and steals the Eye of Onyx. However, Queen Thorn has the real one, and the Eye he stole was fake. When Qibli summons a sandstorm with Princess Anemone's weather bracelets, he disappears from the stronghold.
- In Darkness of Dragons, he says "Great snakes", which is a famous expression Tintin used.
