Real Name: Petalwing
Search for 'Petalwing' on Amazon

Petalwing is a Preserver: a bugsized creature with green, impenetrable skin, butterfly wings and the ability to spin "wrapstuff," a spiderweb-like substance used for cocoons.

Petalwing is a preserver - one of the carefree, fairylike creatures that arrived on the World of Two Moons with the original High Ones. Petalwing lives under the grand illusion that "highthings" (i.e., elves) cannot live without it, and must be watched over and protected. Petalwing is the closest thing that the Preservers have to a leader and was the first Preserver to have significant interactions with the Wolfriders. Winnowill saw Petalwing as a threat to her dominion over the Gliders and tried to imprison it. Later, Dewshine was able to release Petalwing, who immediately fulfilled Winnowill's prophecy by bringing Lord Voll out of his lethargy by its mere appearance. Petalwing led Lord Voll to the High Ones' Palace, and unwittingly to his own death. After the Elf-Troll War, Petalwing unlocked the door to the Chamber of the Scroll of Colors inside the Palace, so that Timmain could reveal to her descendants their origins and history. Cutter considered Petalwing to be a major annoyance; unperturbed, Petalwing accompanied Cutter and the other "highthings" on many adventures - always thinking that it knew what was best for them.
