Winger is a blue dragon with ear-like appendages on his head and darker blue spines on the lower portion of his tail. He has a cream colored underbelly and wings, and a long tail with horizontally oriented fins on the end. He also has slightly darker blue striping on the top side of his wings, lower legs, and lower tail. The tips of his head appendages are darker shaded as well. Winger has bright, canary yellow eyes.
|“||I don't like backing down or giving up, especially when I know I'm right. [src]||”|
Winger is a kind, bold, and compassionate young dragon, very close to his friends and adoptive siblings, and especially to his adoptive brother Dak. He is also more responsible than the others (apart from Leyla and Summer) and has displayed the qualities of a good leader, calling on his fellow Rescue Riders to action when there's trouble and can be quite wise, as he once said that being brave isn't being fearless but doing what needs to be done even if one is afraid.
He still has a young and immature side, evident by his daredevil flying and often challenging others to a race (even though he always wins), but he tends to be somewhat more careful than his adoptive brother Dak. He also exhibits competitiveness as he does not like to back down or give up, but will when it is appropriate.
Winger also proves himself to be extremely duty bound to his work as a rescue rider as the others commented that he doesn't know how to take a break and relax.
Abilities, Talents, and Skills
Speed: As a Swiftwing, Winger is the fastest flier of all the Rescue Riders and potentially most species of dragons.
Firepower: Winger can launch up to three Power Blasts of energy before he needs to recharge, and lately he achieved his strongest ability, the Mega Blast, which is far more powerful and something achieved only by adult Swiftwings. Like his flight capabilities, Winger has the strongest firepower of the all the Rescue Riders as his single power blast was able to knock a practice target into the ocean as Winger mentioned he tried to hold back in "Charged Up".
Strength: Despite being young, Winger has proven himself to be really strong as he was able to lift Magnus' Mechno Dragon albeit barely with extra weight of Axel from falling into a volcano.
Intelligence: As a Strike Class dragon, Winger has proven himself to be extremely smart. At some point, he learned how to write poetry and claimed to enjoy it. He also has a great memory, as he remembered exactly how many times Dak fell off his back. He is also an excellent dancer.
|Main article: Dak and Winger's Relationship|
Dak is Winger's adoptive brother, rider, and his best friend. They're almost always together and enjoy going on daring flights and performing breathtaking aerial tricks and stunts. They get along perfectly and tend to be on the same page in any situation though Winger is somewhat more careful and more responsible than Dak.
Leyla is Winger's adoptive sister, and they are close in their own way. Winger respects and admires Leyla's knowledge of dragons and counts on her making plans when he and Dak aren't being reckless.
Summer is Winger's friend and fellow Rescue Rider. She is something of a sisterly figure to him in a relationship very similar to the one shared between Dak and Leyla.
In "Heavy Metal" when Magnus, Dak, Leyla, Winger, and Summer get stuck and Leyla was able to get out to call for help, Winger and Summer argue at first, but then Summer admits that it was her fault, and Winger does the same thing. The two apologized to each other and gave each other a high five with their wings.
Burple is Winger's friend and teammate. He looks out for Burple and does his best to encourage him whenever Burple is feeling down.
Aggro is Winger's friend and newest teammate. They started off on the wrong foot due to a misunderstanding but once it was cleared up, he and the rest of the Rescue Riders welcomed her to join them though it took a little bit before they managed to work well together as Aggro was new to the team.
Cutter is Winger's friend and teammate, and he tends to help keep Cutter's antics from becoming a problem. Still, they work well together and are good friends. Winger encouraged Cutter to become the leader of their team, while the Rescue Riders were searching for the Golden Dragon.
Winger gets along well with Chief Duggard, and enjoys giving him flights on his back from time to time.
