History[]

He is an expert on Dragon Land lore and is a great resource for Max, Emmy, Enrique and the dragon friends. He's the teacher at the School in the Sky, and teaches the dragons how to do things like sharpen their claws and fly. He also teaches the dragons to learn some Spanish words by telling them the meaning of each word in English. He also mentions that he came from Mexico in To Fly With Dragons, when Max and Emmy also mention that some of their family members are from Mexico as well. His classroom is full of books, art supplies and surprises, including The Big Storybook - a fantastical almanac of sorts. Quetzal is the dragon the youngsters turn to when they need a grown up but the wise dragon never gives them a total solution. He just leads them to discover, on their own, the right path to take. In the episode "Just For Laughs", he is proven to be ticklish.
