Skywing Dragons spend most of their lives flying in the air. They hunt from the air, diving at prey from above, and land only to rest. They are some of the fastest fliers, capable of extremely high speeds. The webbing at the end of the tail acts as a rudder, allowing them to easily change direction during flight.
The firstborn son of She Who Loves Silence and She Who Holds a Thousand Souls, this is the first skywing to be properly named in the weyr. He Who Is Above The Spirits is a bit unusual for his breed, in that he spends a good quarter of his days curled up near his mother, on the ground. He helps her arrange the broken eggshells and shattered scales of the dead so that their spirits are at peace. During his time in the sky, He Who Is Above The Spirits keeps one eye out for approaching humans bringing more unfortunate dragons for his mother's merciful blessing. He knows that someday, it will be his duty to become the Watcher of the Dead.
