Ezran is the King of Katolis, the son of King Harrow and Queen Sarai, the younger half-brother of Callum, as well as a descendant of the Orphan Queen. Along with Callum, Bait, and Rayla, he returned the Dragon Prince, Azymondias, to his mother, the Dragon Queen Zubeia, to establish peace between the humans and the inhabitants of Xadia.
Ezran is a light brown-skinned child with wide, light blue eyes, a round nose, freckles spotted across his cheeks, and thick eyebrows. On his head grows a fluffy, dark brown afro, which extends mainly upwards and does not grow much further than past his neck. He wears a red, long-sleeved shirt adorned with gold accents, a brown belt with a gold buckle, dark brown trousers, and dark gray and brown boots.
When acting out his role as the new king, he carries a dark red robe with white fur sown into it over his shoulders, as well as the Katolian crown that he inherited from his father.
Ezran is a compassionate boy and a pacifist. He is described as brave and strong by Rayla, which was evident when he risked his life to save the unhatched Azymondias by diving into an icy lake to rescue his egg after Rayla had accidentally dropped it into the water. He is also known to be selfless, as he often puts others before his own needs. Knowing neither Zym nor his kingdom would be safe until the Dragon Prince was returned to Xadia and peace would be established, Ezran decided to go home to take his place as the rightful king to play his part.
According to Corvus, Ezran had already shown more courage, strength, and grace most kings have shown in their lifetime during his short reign. Like his father, he is caring and considerate towards the people of Katolis, not wishing for anyone innocent to fight in a war that can be prevented. However, Ezran is aware that he can not be the king his father was, instead deciding to forge his own path, one that was not determined by the mistakes and history of the past, as his father had wished for him.
Due to being an outcast in his childhood, Ezran generally feels more comfortable around animals, as he finds it easy to see things from their point of view and has developed a certain level of empathy, which allows him to understand their feelings and thoughts.
Ezran tends to be more truthful, trusting, and honest than Callum, which was shown when he wanted to tell their aunt, Amaya, the truth about their quest. He is not bound to prejudice like his father and was quick to put aside any negative claims made about elves by other humans.
Despite all his strengths, Ezran's innocence and kind heart come with a naivety that tends to become dangerous for him. Because of his naive personality, he didn't suspect Soren's aim to kill him in a zip-line he had built, until the suspicions were proven by an illusion cast by Lujanne. He was also willing to give Viren a second chance, although it could have resulted in his death if Soren had not intervened and if Viren would not have turned out to be a decoy.
Quirky and lighthearted, Ezran is an eccentric kid who has always had trouble making friends — with humans, at least. He has an amazing ability to befriend animals, and his best friend is his pet grumpy Glow Toad, Bait. Ezran doesn't quite understand the weight of his crown yet, and spends his princely freedom exploring the darkest, most secret nooks and crannies of Katolis Castle.
Skills and Abilities
Ezran has an affinity with animals and is capable of understanding their feelings and expressions, which is showcased through his relationship with Bait and other creatures, as well as his ability to hear Azymondias' heartbeat when he had not yet hatched. After he hatched, Ezran's affinity expanded into a telepathic connection to the young dragon.
Due to his ability to communicate with animals, Ezran can ride on their backs with ease; from wild Banthers, to Moon Phoenixes, and even dragons. Because of his ability, he also has accurate knowledge about some animals; like when he was able to tell a real spider from a fake one, or appease a Banther.
Due to their strong bond, Ezran has developed a telepathic connection with Azymondias, feeling when the young dragon is worried or scared.
