A very young knotted-dragon hatchling. He has a thick blue hide streaked with blood-red stripes.
Horus expects everything to be done for him and is fat, lazy and cowardly, but is basically good-hearted.
He is lost in the Deep Dark Woods and looking for a way home. He keeps the human girl Nib to “have as a snack on the way", but in reality, he is too scared to eat her (or to be without her).
