Death Song

Death Song - School of DragonsBeautiful as a sunrise and as brutal as a Berserker, the Death Song is a notoriously hypnotic species of dragons. It does not breathe fire, but spits a sticky amber-like substance to trap its victims. We encourage any student confronting this Mystery Class dragon to tread lightly, for the Death Song is as wild as a typhoon!

With their vibrant scales, frills, and enchanting call, it’s easy to become entranced by Death Songs, but beware! Beneath this resplendent exterior lies an invasive and cannibalistic species. They use their song to lure dragons to them, only to trap them in an amber cocoon. There are only a few creatures with the ability to face a Death Song unscathed. Thunderdrums are immune to the Death Song's call because they have poor hearing!

When not invading Berk, untamed Death Songs can be found in several locations throughout the archipelago. Melody Island has been infamously renamed to “Death Song Island” because of its infestation of these dragons. They also lurk in the abandoned Ship Graveyard, where they spend their days hunting the giant eels that jump from the ocean’s murky depths.

With a shot limit of 8, an acceleration of 4.2 and a max speed of 8.2, Death Songs are powerful enough to shake the skies! Those brave students who can tame these godlike dragons will gain a loyal friend for life. While training these beautiful and enchanting creatures at the School of Dragons can be dangerous, we know that a well-trained and intuitive Viking such as yourself can rise to the occasion!

The Death Song is perhaps one of the most dangerous dragons that I’ve ever encountered. Behind its enchanting voice and beauty, there lies a creature vicious enough to eat its own kind and possesses the ability to imprison an entire village in the amber it spits out.

I once had the misfortune of encountering this vicious dragon when I was out flying on my Monstrous Nightmare, Blazewing, with my brother on his Thunderdrum, Wingburst. We heard the most enchanting song. Immediately, Blazewing started to fly in the direction of the singing, with me desperately trying to steer him away and that’s when I caught a glimpse of it: the Death Song. Its wings were beautifully colored and patterned, and frills covered its body.

It reared its head back, and out shot a reddish-orange substance from its mouth that encased my dragon and in the blink of an eye, we were falling through the air, my dragon’s wings trapped within the amber. As we plummeted downwards, I shrieked as I saw the shadow of the Death Song hovering overhead. Then, a boom cut through the chaos.

My brother swooped in on Wingburst who caught us with his long Thunderdrum tail and carried us away from the Death Song’s clutches. I looked at my poor dragon encased in amber. At least we were both alive and had avoided becoming the Death Song’s dinner.
