Elegant, determined, and lethal, the Deathly Galeslash inherited the best flying traits from its parent Dragons: the Deadly Nadder and the Stormcutter. Although difficult to train initially, a bond with this breed is a lifetime union. They are deeply loyal, highly protective, and immensely intelligent. Second only to the Night Fury, the Galeslash is a natural leader and powerful warrior. Their intelligence means they use lethal force only as a last resort, and are keen to rely on clever tricks, traps, and intimidation above all else. Not many Vikings are up to the task of standing down this powerful ally to Berk. Like the Nadder, Galeslashes have an adoration for chicken (much to Tuffnut's dislike), are somewhat vain, and fly like the wind itself. Yet they tend to be more serious and calculated, much like the Stormcutter, and as such are recommended to older or more mature trainers.[src]
Hatchling to Adult
The Deathly Galeslash's overall build resembles the Deadly Nadder, with light Stormcutter influence. They have two pairs of wings and three whiskers on each side of their heads, as well as a three-finned tail. As a hybrid, this dragon's scales are a mix between its parental species.
Deathy Galeslashes are able to breathe bright orange magnesium fire, which they inherited from the Deadly Nadder parent. The fire comes out in a tornado-like shape, trait which they inherited from the Stormcutter parent.
Air Current Detection
Hah! Stupid dragon still has a blind spot — OUCH![src]
— Tuffnut, finding out a Galeslash can detect air current
Using their four wings, Deathly Galeslashes are able to detect changes in the air currents. This allows them to use the currents to their advantage in flight.
Did you know that a Galeslash can see a yak's eye from 1000 feet?![src]
The Deathly Galeslash's behavior falls somewhere in between that of each parent; they are intelligent, very active, and playing fetch with them keeps them entertained. They also tend to be aloof and can be intractable if their respect is not earned.
Deathly Galeslashes are so intelligent, that they tend to prefer strategies that confuse their opponents. Some individuals like Copsekeep have even played Maces and Talons.
Incredibly intelligent, yet steely and aloof, the Frigid Galeslash makes training an exercise in patience. They key to befriending this dragon is for the rider wait quietly in the cold nearby, sometimes for hours on end. Eventually, the Galeslash learns to respect the rider, and its heart thaws enough to allow bonding to begin.
Deathly Galeslashes require respect before they decide to submit to a rider, usually through feats of strength or resilience. They are also a bit high maintenance due to their intelligence and activity levels.
The Deathly Galeslash was first introduced in this game, along with many other dragon hybrids. The only way a player can obtain a Deathly Galeslash is by breeding a Deadly Nadder and a Stormcutter in the Breedery.
Legends Evolved uses the earlier name of this hybrid, Deadly Galewind.
