would name them all for those the gods have taken. The green one shall
be Rhaegal, for my valiant brother who died on the green banks of the
Trident. The cream-and-gold I call Viserion. Viserys was cruel and weak
and frightened, yet he was my brother still. His dragon will do what he
could not… The black is Drogon.”
The Blood of the Dragon. The phrase “blood of the dragon” refers to the Valyrian descent of the Targaryens, and more specifically to the fact that they were one of the forty dragonlord families of Valyria. Typical Targaryen features remain strongly of the typical Valyrian features: pale skin, silver, platinum, or gold hair and eyes in a variety of shades of purple, violet, or light blue.
