Hikaru is a winterborn Sunland dragon, raised by Rashard.



Hikaru's is described as having black winter scales[1], silver spring scales[2], and burnished gray summer scales[3]. He has "large serpent eyes of luminous gold"[4] as well as huge, swan-like wings, which remain black despite what color his scales become with the seasons[2]. His mane and horns, too, remain silver no matter what color his scales.


Hikaru is very curious about the world, wanting to know everything. He often asks Shard questions. He is also seen as being naive by other non-winterborn dragons.


Hikaru is Shard's nest-son and wingbrother, as well as the current chronicler.


In The Summer King Chronicles ArcEdit

Skyfire Edit

While Hikaru does not appear in Skyfire, his egg does. Amaratsu gave his egg to Shard for safe keeping, hoping that her son would bring the Sunland dragons back into the world.

By the Silver WindEdit

Hikaru comes to the Silver Isles after finding the truth about the wyrms. He guides Maja's band home to the Silver Isles, taking a faster route.

He reveals to Shard and his firends later on that the wyrms are after Sverin because the Sunland Dragons from long ago enslaved them to hunt Kajar due to the fact he also red.

He later left the Silver Isles and returned with his mate Natsumi and his dragon kit.

Trivia Edit
