Stormcloud; A Dragon Associated with Aegon the Younger

Stormcloud was a young male dragon who got close to Prince Aegon the Younger.

When Prince Aegon Targaryen was born, a dragon egg was placed in his cradle. The egg hatched into the dragon Stormcloud. Nine-year-old Aegon had yet to mount his young dragon at the beginning of the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.

Prince Jacaerys Velaryon decided that his half-brothers Aegon and Viserys Targaryen should be sent to Pentos for care by the Prince of Pentos during the civil war. The young princes got on the Pentoshi cog Gay Abandon at Dragonstone in late 129 AC.

And Viserys took his dragon egg with him. Aegon took Stormcloud with him. Ships flying the flags of the Three Daughters seized the cog and her accompanying ships in the Gullet. By taking off on his first trip, Aegon could get away by flying away.

Prince Aegon made it to Dragonstone while desperately holding on to his dragon’s neck. Stormcloud was badly hurt as he ran away. When he got to Dragonstone, he had stubs of arrows stuck in his belly and a scorpion bolt through his neck. Within an hour, Stormcloud had died. He hissed as his wounds spewed black, hot blood. Aegon would never fly again after the death of Stormcloud.
