Continuing Characters from Fourth Wing in Iron Flame
Violet Sorrengail is our 21 years old female protagonist. In Fourth Wing she became a powerful character by bonding two dragons, Tairn and Andarna and developing a powerful lightening signet. In Iron Flame, Violet develops her second signet. She continues her relationship with Xaden and discovers an incredible secret about her dragon, Andarna. She is fierce and loyal and at her core, a protector.
Xaden Riorson is a 24-year-old newly graduated lieutenant from Basgiath War College and the heir apparent of Aretia. Xaden is our male protagonist and a complicated characters. He continues to aid Poromiel in fighting venin and his ultimate goal is protect Violet at all cost. We discover that Xaden has a second signet, he is an inntinnsic as well as a shadow wielder.
General Lilith Sorrengail is Violet’s mother. She is a Rider and resides within the Basgiath War College. Lilith did everything to protect her children and even sacrificed herself to ensure her children will survive at all cost.
Mr Sorrengail is Violet’d father. He was a Scribe and trained Violet all her life to be a Scribe just like him. Mr Sorrengail died of heart failure. Not much more is known of Mr Sorrengail in Iron Flame.
Mira Sorrengail is Violet’s older sister. Mira is a Captain in Iron Flame and an accomplished Rider. Mira decides to turn against Navarre and fight for the people, thus fighting against the common enemy: dark wielders.
Dain Aetos was Violet’s best friend. In Iron Flame, Dain becomes the Fourth Wing Wingleader, replacing Xaden Riorson. He is confused as to why Violet is actively avoiding him after the Battle of Resson. He redeems himself by saving Violet and choosing to fight against the common enemy: venin.
Rhiannon Matthias is a second year in the Riders Quadrant and Violet’s best friend. Rhiannon becomes the Squad Leader and develops her summoning signet. She is patient and kind towards Violet and is a loyal friend in times of need.
Colonel Aetos is Dain Aetos’s father and a close advisor to Lilith Sorrengail, Violet’s mother. In Iron Flame we learn that he is actually a villain who not only knows about venin but works with them. He tasked venin within Basgiath to attempt to kill Violet and others who partook in the Battle of Resson.
Syrena is a gryphon flier who fought bravely at Resson, alongside Violet and Xaden. We find out in Iron Flame that she is Catriona’s older sister and a prominent figure in Poromiel, second in line for the throne.

Signets in Iron Flame
We already know quite a lot about signets. Also, our main characters have their signets known but as we introduce new characters, we’re still finding out what they can do. In a new twist, we learn that Xaden Riorson has in fact two signets and that Violet’s second signet also manifested, although we don’t know officially what it is.
