Introduction to a dragonet.

A red outline of Muldee.

I am at the first edit of Book 4 of The Wolves of Vimar. It’s called Immortal’s Death. Once it’s gone through this edit, I’ll send it to critique partners to see what they make of it.

It will be some time yet before it’s ready to go to my publisher, though, but I would like to tell you a bit about one of my favourite characters.

This character began as a surprise in Book 1, The Wolf Pack. He helped the group known as Wolf to escape from capture by a band of hobgoblins. Then he disappeared until the end of book 3, making a brief appearance.

However, this character was not going to be left out. He did not want a bit-part, and so in this book he has quite an important role.

Who is he? I hear you ask.

Well, he’s not human, elf or dwarf. In fact he’s a small relative of dragons. He and his like are called dragonets, and he is called Muldee.

A dragonet looks to all intents and purposes like a small dragon. In fact, the members of Wolf though he and his siblings were baby dragons, until he put them right.

Dragonets, unlike real dragons, have iridescent scales. Real dragons have scales of a particular colour, but those of dragonets shimmer in blue, red, green, purple, yellow, white, you name it and you’ll see it there.

They cannot breathe fire or acid or anything else, like real dragons, nor are they magical, but they do have one talent.

Psionics.

Dragonets are telepathic, and also have a slight telekinesis ability. They can send what they call a ‘mindblast’ into the brain of another creature. They use this for capturing their prey, but it is insufficient to kill a large creature. If they want to kill or seriously harm something larger than a cat, a group of them will band together and use a co-ordinated mind blast.

A single dragonet is capable of giving a large creature a very nasty headache, though.

So much for the background. I’m going to leave more about Muldee for another post, probably next week. He’s quite a character. I’m sure you will like him.

  1. I like your ideas about the dragonets! You’ll recall in my book, Dragon Train, that you reviewed a couple of years ago that I featured Blue Dragons but also mentioned smaller ones: Silvers and Golds. Our ideas about the smaller dragons are similar yet different enough to be interesting! I’m sure somewhere in the multiverse, dragons like ours exist. We just have to figure out how to travel to that wonderous land. Looking forward to your new book about dragonets.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, I remember your small dragons. I’d love to go to such a world. Incidentally, my dragons (real ones, not small) aren’t evil as many assume. They are just vain, self-centred, egotistical and lacking in empathy. And think they are owed something by all other creatures.
      This book, Book 4 in the Wolves of Vimar series (called Immortal’s Death), features Muldee, the dragonet, more than he appeared in the others. He has several chapters to himself! I rather like him. Look out for him in next week’s post.
