Vermithor once belonged to King Jahaerys, Rhaenrya’s great-grandfather and King Viserys’ predecessor. He hasn’t had a rider since Jaehaerys’ death and has instead remained in his lair on Dragonstone.

Tyraxes, Moondancer, Sunfyre, Dreamfyre and Silverwing were dragons that were mentioned in the series but not yet shown, proving their existence and possible future appearance. Daemon confirmed during the finale of House of the Dragon that there are three more unclaimed dragons who reside on Dragonstone. These dragons are The Cannibal, Grey Ghost, and Sheepstealer. One more unclaimed dragon is also hinted to be Silverwing.
