I always envisioned Thorn and Murtagh as good people who had no choice but to make the best of an incredibly difficult situation. I put them through far more than anyone else in the Inheritance Cycle—from forced treason and betrayal, to torture and oaths of fealty given under duress—and yet in the end, they were still able to make the right decision. To me, that is true heroism. As complex and flawed as Thorn and Murtagh are, they held true to who and what they are, and that, I think, is what makes them so special.
When considering how to draw Thorn’s eye, I knew it was important to capture the intensity of his gaze, as well as the spiky—or, ahem, the thorny—nature of his character. Although he’s essentially good, this is a dragon who loves lighting dandelion puffballs on fire and watching them burn. Hopefully you’ll feel the drawing does him justice.

p.p.s. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to ship our items outside of the US or Canada. Our deepest apologies to fans everywhere—you matter and this decision was not made lightly. Due to a combination of Covid-related supply shortages as well as mail carrier delays and mistakes, we’ve been experiencing an unprecedented number of issues and losses when shipping overseas. This is in addition to new trade regulations further complicating matters. For example, as of December 2022, the European Union requires small business owners to accept returns and pay for return shipping without reason. This is in addition to the EU VAT tax laws that were enacted in July 2021, which have also created expense and difficulty. Additionally, Germany is also requiring small business owners to register and pay for packaging recycling. To make our products affordable for fans, we operate on a tight margin of profit and simply cannot absorb the costs associated with these new regulations and general complications. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
