Can Drogon survive if Dany dies




Drogon (in the original: Drogon) is the wildest, largest and most difficult to tame dragon of Daenerys Targaryen. He was also the first of their dragons to spit fire and hunt.

In the series

Features & appearance

Drogon's scales are almost entirely black, but his leather wings are red-black in color. His back crest is also red.

It is named after Daenerys' late husband, Khal Drogo. It also seems that Daenerys loves him the best of her dragons; she is often seen caressing him.

season 1

Daenerys received three dragon eggs as a gift from Magister Illyrio Mopatis on the occasion of her wedding to Khal Drogo.[1] She kept the eggs in a chest and kept them to herself.[2] While trying to steal her, Viserys Targaryen was stopped by Ser Jorah Mormont.[3]

Drogon and his brothers Viserion and Rhaegal hatch at the stake that Daenerys Targaryen built for her late husband KhalDrogo, who lost his life to the betrayal of the witch Mirri Maz Duur. After Daenerys placed the dragon eggs next to the khal and tied Mirri Maz Duur to the stake, she finally got into the fire herself. The sacrifice of fire and blood allowed the dragon eggs to hatch, which had previously been petrified for years.[4]

After Daenerys rises unscathed from the ashes the next morning after the funeral, Drogon climbs on her shoulder and utters a powerful scream, heralding the return of the dragons.[4]

season 2

On the way with the Khalasar, Daenerys tries to feed Drogon, but he does not accept the meat. However, she later succeeds in teaching him to roast some raw meat with flames, whereupon he eats it.[5][6]

Drogon and his brothers are stolen from Xaro Xhoan Daxo's house. Through Pyat Pree, Daenerys learns that he stole her and brought her to the House of the Immortals, where she is supposed to come for her. Daenerys rushes there and is chained, but Drogon and his brothers kill Pyat Pree, whereupon the chains crumble to dust.[7][8][9]

season 3

Drogon and his brothers have already grown visibly. The dragons hunt fish during a boat trip.[10]

In the slave bay, Daenerys talks to Kraznys mo Nakloz, who wants to sell her the Immaculate if she gives him Drogon. Against the opposition of her advisors, Daenerys agrees.[11]

When the deal is carried out, Nakloz complains that Drogon does not want to obey him. Daenerys replies that dragons don't obey anyone. Finally their plan works: the Immaculate kill most of the slave traders, Drogon also actively helps and burns Kraznys mo Nakloz first and foremost. Then they leave Astapor, with Drogon and his brothers flying over the army.[12]

While negotiating with the Masters of Yunkai, Drogon and his brothers are presented in Daenerys' tent. Drogon growls at the Master when he gets too close to Daenerys. Later, two slaves present Daenerys with a gold chest as a bribe. As they talk, Daenerys tosses a piece of meat at Viserion, and Drogon tries to steal it from him. As they quarrel during the trial, Drogon growls again at the Master as he threatens to become Daenerys. Since the master feels threatened, he wants to go with the gold. But when the slaves want to pick up the chest, Drogon growls and hisses at them, so that they disappear without them.[13]

Season 4

Daenerys on the way to Meereen, she camps with her army on the coast of Slave Bay and watches her dragons as they hunt. When Drogon argues with his brothers over a dead sheep, Daenerys tries to calm him down, but is startled when Drogon yells at them and shows his teeth. Jorah Mormont points out to Daenerys that the dragons cannot be tamed, not even by their mother.[14]

In fact, there are incidents; After Daenerys has become Queen of Meereen, a farmer brings her the remains of some dead goats from his herd and explains that her dragon has stolen them. Dany asks for forgiveness and assures him that he will be paid three times the price for the goats. However, she does nothing to tame Drogon.[15]

Only when another farmer brings her a charred corpse - this time that of a person, his three-year-old daughter - Daenerys draws the consequences. She catches Viserion and Rhaegal and takes them to the catacombs of Meereen, where she chains the two with heavy hearts and locks them up; the entrance is sealed with a large stone. But Drogon is currently not to be found, although he was actually to blame for the death of the child.[16]

Season 5

Drogon is seen flying in the sky of Essos a few times. Among other things, this has the consequence that Tyrion and Jorah do not notice that they are surrounded by stone people, which in turn leads to Jorah being infected with the gray scales.[17]

When Daenerys reopens the battle pits, the harpy's sons attack her and other nobles. Drogon rushes over to protect her and flies away with her, leaving her in a place unknown to her. He is exhausted from the wounds of the fight against the sons of the harpy, which is why Daenerys goes in search of food and shelter and is surrounded by Dothraki warriors.[18][19]

Season 6

Drogon initially disappears after Daenerys is captured by the Dothraki. However, after she has united the Khalasars and is on the way to Mereen, they meet again in the desert. Daenerys rides him again, this time to impress the Dothraki and to bind them to them for good. From his back she gives a speech to the Dothraki riders and explains that she will make them all her blood riders and that she will ask more of them than any khal before.[20]

On Drogon, Daenerys then flies to Mereen, while Daario Naharis leads the Dothraki by land. Arrived in Meereen, Drogon lands on the great pyramid and initially disappears again after he has dropped Daenerys.[21]

When the masters besieging Mereen meet with Daenerys to negotiate surrender, Drogon flies over the gathering, lands on the roof of a nearby building, and jumps down next to his mother. With this he then flies over the armada of the masters and destroys on Daenerys order together with his brothers, who have freed themselves, one of the catapult ships in the second siege of Meereen. The Armada then surrenders.[22] Together with Rhaegal and Viserion, he flies over the huge fleet when they accompany Daenerys and their huge army on the way from Meereen to Westeros.[23]

Season 7

The three dragons, including Drogon, accompany Daenerys' fleet on the crossing to Westeros. When they reach the island of Drachenstein on the edge of the Black Water Bay, the dragons circle around the fortress.[24]

Drogon flies over the long staircase to Drachenstein Castle when Tyrion Lannister, Missandei and some Dothraki accompany Jon Schnee and Ser Davos Seewert to their meeting with Daenerys. Davos and Jon go down, frightened. Tyrion helps them up and they continue down the path to the throne room while the dragons continue to circle the fortress. Some time later, Jon and Daenerys meet privately at the entrance to the fortress and they watch the dragons.[25]

Daenerys Targaryen flies to the mainland on Drogon's back, accompanied by the Dothraki, as she is forced to intervene in the war through the loss of her allies. Drogon rages in a battle against Lannister soldiers, including Bronn and Jaime Lannister. He kills some of the soldiers present and helps break the formation of the soldiers so that the Dothraki warriors can attack. On Jaime's order, Bronn tries to kill Drogon with Qyburn's ballista and hits at the approach of Drogon's wing. Drogon then destroys the ballista with a jet of fire. Jaime then rides a spear towards the distracted Drogon. Daenerys Targaryen stands next to Drogon and pulls the ballista arrow from Drogon's shoulder. Drogon sprays a jet of fire at Jaime, but Bronn can barely knock Jaime out of the line of fire. The two then sink into the water.

When Daenerys Targaryen flies back to Dragon Stone, Jon Snow is standing on a cliff and sees Daenerys' arrival. Drogon lands in front of him and yells at him. But suddenly he seems to know or recognize something. He becomes calm and looks down at Jon. This courageously opposes the whole thing. He takes off his glove and holds out his hand to Drogon, which Daenerys, sitting on his back, watches anxiously at first. However, to Daenerys' surprise, Jon lets Drogon touch and stroke her.[26]

When Daenerys learns from Gendry what a hopeless situation Jon and the others are in, she decides to come to their aid with Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal against the advice of Tyrion. When she found Jon and the others on the other side of the wall, Drogon and his brothers kill countless revenants. Through the flaming walls they create with their fiery breath, they can hold back most of the undead army. However, Drogon has to watch as his brother Viserion is killed by an ice spear thrown by the Night King. You'll have to take off without Jon as a second spear will be pointed at Drogon. Drogon is able to dodge this, with Jorah Mormont almost falling off the dragon's back. Drogon and Rhaegal fly to Eastwatch and have to leave Jon and Viserion behind.[27]

Later, Daenerys and her two remaining dragons, Drogon and Rhaegal, set off for the negotiations of King's Landing. She appears when all the other negotiating partners have been around for some time, riding Drogon in the dragon's pit. When the faction around Queen Cersei saw the dragon, many responded with astonishment because of its size. After dropping Daenerys off, he gets up again and circles around the venue with Rhaegal.[28]

Season 8

After Daenerys traveled to Winterfell, Drogon and Rhaegal settled in the open terrain near the castle. Dothraki feed them, but notice that the dragons are consuming less food every day. As a result, Daenerys and Jon Schnee pay the dragons a visit. While Daenerys rides Drogon, Rhaegal accepts Jon as his rider. Together they fly over the plains of the north.[29]

During the battle against the Night King and his entourage, Daenerys rides Drogon and attacks the ranks of the undead from the air. In a blizzard conjured up by the White Walkers, the dragons get lost and collide. They only find their way back through the trench that Melisandre ignited. While Rhaegal lands on the wall, Drogon continues to spew fire into the army of revenants.

Daenerys rushes to the aid of Jon on Drogon, who is surrounded by the newly awakened undead of the Night King and allows him an escape route. An attempt to destroy the Night King with dragon fire fails. Drogon then lands and is quickly attacked by dozens of the undead. The dragon's desperate attempts to shake off the revenants end in Daenerys falling off his back as well. Drogon then fled, strewn with many undead. He only returns to her later, after the battle is over, when Daenerys mourns the fallen Jorah Mormont.[30]

Drogon flies to Drachenstein with Rhaegal after the cremation of the dead at the Battle of Winterfell is complete. He is ridden by Daenerys when they get into the ambush that Cersei has prepared for them. Rhaegal is killed by three well-aimed scorpion shots. In a rage, Daenerys flies with Drogon towards Euron's fleet, which Drogon already has in his sights with his scorpion. At the last moment Daenerys decides and Drogon just manages to avoid the bolts of the scorpions. During the conversation with Cersei, Drogon is also present and rests well behind Daenerys' forces to be out of the range of the scorpions.[31]

Varys is sentenced to death for betraying Daenerys and is executed by Drogon's dragon fire. In the Battle of King's Landing, Drogon and Daenerys destroy the Iron Fleet. Euron, who fails to hit the last of the dragons, jumps into Black Water Bay to avoid certain death. When there is not much left of the Iron Fleet, the mother dragon and her last remaining child set out to destroy the scorpions on the walls. Again, countless shots miss the dragon, who manages to destroy all the scorpions on the walls and also to blow up the gate with his fire, whereby the immaculate, the Dothraki and the army of the north get into the city. Drogon's goal is then the remains of the Golden Company before he turns to the Lannister army in the city.

When the army rings the bells, Drogon lands on a wall. Daenerys overlooks the city from his back before deciding to continue attacking despite the surrender. Daenerys and Drogon kill thousands of innocents and destroy the Red Keep, as well as almost all of King's Landing, where they also catch people from their own ranks. The dragon doesn't seem to stop until nothing seems to be left of King's Landing.[32]

During Daenerys' victory speech, the dragon is also present and applauds her with an occasional roar. Later, Drogon guards the entrance to the throne room, where he rests and is gradually covered by ashes and fallen stones. When Jon Schnee wants to talk to Daenerys, Drogon shakes off the ashes, checks Jon suspiciously and then lets him see Daenerys in the throne room.

After Daenerys was murdered by Jon, Drogon's wailing roar can be heard echoing through the throne room before the dragon lands in a hole in the ruined walls of the Red Keep and nudges his mother's motionless body. When she doesn't move, the dragon stares at Jon with hatred, knowing what he's done.

For a moment it seems as if Drogon wants to put a quick end to Jon with his flame breath, but then instead he melts the iron throne with his flame, picks up Daenerys' lifeless body with his claw and flies out of town.

At the small council meeting, Bran asks when Drogon was last seen. The answer was that he flew east, to the general relief of those present. Bran then leaves the session to "find the dragon personally".[33]
