Flareadons are eagle-sized pterodactyl-like creatures. They are gold with fire-resistant fur and are fairly uncommon. Flareadons usually live near volcanoes for they require fire to maintain a normal body temperature, and what elves would consider a normal temperature would be deadly to a flareadon. This creature is part of the gorgodon hybrid used by Lady Gisela to guard Nightfall.
A female flareadon that lives at Havenfield. Gildie arrived at Havenfield in Book 1: Keeper, surrounded in flame by Sophie. It was discovered that the Black Swan most likely led her there for Sophie to find, and to later get help from to bottle Everblaze (the flame, not the book) in the first book. Her feathers were scorched but later healed.
