Moodswing was not always a dragon. Nor was she in the Universe of Wings of Fire.
She began as a scavenger, in Scrollmaker's simulation. She noticed something... strange. When she asked her father about string theory, and learned about quantum physics, she thought that maybe they were living in a simulation.
She was also a huge Wings of Fire nerd.
She had a realization, a revelation, if you will.
She realised that she was living in Scrollmaker's simulation.
Scrollmaker had enchanted the world to have no animus magic except for her necklace. What Scrollmaker didn't know was that animus magic was the thing preventing quantum paradoxes, keeping the Universe in order. This is why the Wings of Fire Universe doesn't have quantum paradoxes.
Moodswing (I'm not telling you my real name but it isn't Moodswing so I'm using that) went to a convention that Tui (or Scrollmaker) was signing books at.
She went on a stage, stole a mic, and announced her theory. Scrollmaker (Tui) smiled, and said that Moodswing had figured it out. She pointed at Moodswing and replaced her conciousness with someone who didn't know. She erased the memory of everyone who had heard and/or saw and continued signing books as if nothing had happened.
Now, Moodswing's original conciousness was going to encarnate as Pomegranate the RainWing, but she had almost revealed Scrollmaker's secret. She needed to be punished.
Moodswing's original personality had three main parts that it changed to and from: A happy, joking nerd, a grumpy, angry rageaholic, and a philosophical , intellegent smart guy.
So, every time her mood changes, she changes to the following:
- Passionfruit, a joking, nerdy, lazy-ish RainWing that thinks she's funnier than she is
- Falcon, a grumpy, irritable SkyWing who yells at everything that inconvieniences her in any way
- Philosophy, wise, calm, philosophical NightWing with an average of 50 tabs open in her head at one time
She cannot control it, and it gets in the way of all of her relationships. She hatched as Pomegranate, because that's what she was originally going to be. However, she is not a tribeless dragon because she is always either a RainWing, SkyWing, or NightWing.
