Veilwings are feathered dragonkin native to Ardenweald. No creature in Ardenweald is more respected for its fierce defense of its family or territory than the graceful and dangerous veilwings. They can breathe charged anima at their enemies, either in a cone like how Azerothian dragons breathe fire, or by spitting it out in bolts. The latter allow the Night Fae to effectively use them as anti-air cannons. Veilwing hearts are sources of great magical power and are especially useful in necromantic rituals.
One veilwing, the Sylverian Dreamer, came into existence as the result of a Dalaranian artist on Azeroth dreaming of painting a "beautiful feathered dragon".
