A train hurtles past, throwing steam in the eyes of unfortunate dragons too close to the tracks. The train is a shiny black, looking brand new at a glance. A closer look, if possible, reveals stains along the wheels and pistons, betraying that this train is not, in fact, new to the Ashfall Waste. On the front of the engine, emblazoned in a fiery orange, are the numbers 812. Along the side, in a matching flame colour, the name “ASCHEFALL”.

In the cab, a tundra can be seen leaning on a shovel, keeping an eye on the fire that powers the engine. This is Flamme, one of the two founders of the service. Although a tundra with plenty of fur to match, being born to the Fire flight his fur has a quality of fireproofing; what looks like singed fur is actually the soot he can never be quite bothered to clear off. He’s never been seen outside of the cab, and theories run rampant that he even sleeps there. Maybe be does.

=== Kohle ===
 
Perched on top of the engine, screeching down at Flamme (who shrugs it off with no apparent care), is a mirror. This is Kohle, the second founder of the service. Also born to the Fire flight, she is one of the few dragons that can safely perch up there without getting burnt. She is also one of the few dragons permitted up there in the first place, as the conductor of the service. Nothing happens without her say-so, and she is fiercely protective of her pack.

=== [[Klinge (The Ashfall Express)|Klinge]] ===
 
At first glance the spiral is easily missed, hidden behind the furred bulk of Flamme and mostly coiled up near the fire. This is Klinge, and he is the driver of the Ashfall Express. His head is the only part visible, sticking out of the cab and facing forwards with a large grin on his face. A dragon born to a small Wind clan of bandits, he has a sense for adventure and enjoys finding new routes. No-one knows the railway lines better than him.
 
 
=== [[Schwert (The Ashfall Express)|Schwert]] ===
 
You don't see her, not until it's too late. The bright colours of the Banescale should make her stand out, especially against the dark greys and glowing ambers of the Ashfall Waste, but Schwert strikes from the sky like a viper - fast, and impossible to avoid. Her job is simple; stop thieves and pirates from making a profit from her train's cargo. There's a reason the service has a reputation for security.
 
 
=== [[Schild (The Ashfall Express)|Schild]] ===
 
Danger is everywhere in the Ashfall Wastes. Clearly, there is no better way to defend against it than to use a Banescale, which the Ashfall Express has whole-heartedly committed to. Alongside his twin, Schild perches atop the train - anywhere along her engine and carriages, wherever he feels like. Observant dragons and beastfolk may discern that there is no clear pattern to his roosting. A predictable guard is a failure of a guard.
