Cross Breeding Info

There needs to be some sort of clean up of the information on the cross breeding that resulted in the Longwing. The enteries for Sharpspitter, Ironwing and Honneur-d'Or don't seem to fit together with the Longwing entry. In fact I've just realised there isn't an entry for Ironwing, though the breed is referenced in a couple of places. --Andrew 04:19, 8 February 2007 (PST)

Code Discrepancies

At the top, where the dragon breed information should be, is instead a series of coding in what appears to be German or some similar language. This is also present on the Imperial and Regal Copper pages. I'd fix it myself, but I don't know how. Wyldefyre 15:02, 3 May 2010 (PDT)


In "Empire of Ivory," when Temeraire crashes into the sandpit that is the Longwing quarantine, Laurence says there are "half-a-dozen" Longwings there. I think that this must be all the Longwings in England (though perhaps not in Gibraltar or further away coverts), and it is after Conterrenis is said to have died, so that means we know of four (Excidium and Lily for certain, and probably Mortiferus and Gentius since he could still spray in Victory of Eagles) but there are two more unaccounted for. Perhaps other breeding ground dragons? Or simply formation leaders we haven't heard of? All in all, it doesn't seem that the Longwing population is much more than the Celestials. -- Strangerface 12:37, 22 August 2010 (PDT)

Dunno. I got the impression that Gentius had been in the Breeding Grounds for a while, but I'm probably wrong. However, if we consider that Gentius had three children, including Excidium, they could also be included (if they have survived this long). Plus, there are also the unknown dragons who are parents to Lily, but these could be one of the aforementioned dragons. Almaron 14:46, 22 August 2010 (PDT)
There could be an unknown number of Longwing eggs waiting to hatch-- Harcourt mentioned that Lily had not been expected to hatch "for another five years at the earliest", suggesting a truly prodigious incubation period. But on a related note, I'd been wondering why we see so few British female crew members as possible candidates for future Longwing dragonets; in fact, I can't recall any besides Emily Roland. --Wombat1138 14:53, 22 August 2010 (PDT)
