Velika Azure-wing is the Queen of the dragons, she is a bit cold to Creel at first but in time she warms up and the two become friends.


Velika is a azure blue with silver horns. Creel once said Velika had an elegance of form and movement.


Velika is a regal but caring queen. She takes a while to trust humans because her friend, King Milun the First, betrayed her by taking the scales from her breast and using them to make slippers to control all the dragons. She does not appear in the book series until the end of the first book. 


Velika is Shardas the Gold's mate, with the two of them being the ruling couple. She has eight dragonlets, one of which is female, who is firstborn and heir to her mother's legacy. Velika is descended from the first dragon who came out of the first fires.
