The owl-like Cloudjumper has been Valka's companion of choice for flying and rescuing other dragons over the last twenty years. Cloudjumper's pride, confidence, and large size lead him to think of himself as the top dragon in Valka's mountain fortress, second only to the Bewilderbeast, who is the king of all dragons in the nest.
Due to their two decades of experience together, Cloudjumper and Valka share a wordless shorthand when flying. Whereas other dragon riders need to call out commands to turn or shoot, Cloudjumper instinctively knows when Valka wants him to move or attack, adding to their combined mystique and prowess in battle.

Like all Stormcutters, Cloudjumper features a second set of hidden wings. When all four wings are deployed in an X-formation, there is no dragon in the sky more maneuverable and precise than Cloudjumper!
While fearsome looking at first glance, Cloudjumper's fore-talons can actually be quite nimble and delicate when the occasion calls for skill over savagery. These sharp, hooked pincers at the tips of Cloudjumper's wings are dexterous enough to gingerly pick the lock of a dragon trap -- or strong enough to tear apart one of Drago's war machines!
