She is normally colored sky blue. As with all dragons, her color changes to reflect her moods. By the age of sixteen she has also learned to change her color at will. Her eyes have been described as having slit-pupils, like a cat, and are either blue or amber-colored. In the last book which she was described, her body was two feet long, with an additional foot of tail. She can walk on all four legs, or just her hind legs.

Skills and abilities
Skysong is still an infant dragon, and will remain one until she is at least thirty years, therefore her wings are flightless.
She has magical abilities controlled by whistling. Kitten can whistle locks open, and can neaten a person's appearance. During the first decade and half of her life she has also learned greater magics like creating protecting barriers or breaking magical spells. Skysong can, even as an infant, force wyverns to do her will. Another interesting attribute to her is that before Flamewing left Skysong into Daine's care she imbued Daine's name into every inch of Skysong to all; immortals, dragons and gods alike that her new mother is Daine.
She cannot communicate mind-to-mind with Daine because she is too young, but she can speak the dragon language. Still Daine and other close friends like Numair's horse Spots can understand Kitten perfectly well by her gestures and the sounds she makes. While visiting Carthak with her foster parents Kitten meets an ancient opal dragon who gives her a scale which enables Kitten to speak the mind language with Daine, Numair and animals. At that time Kitten is about sixteen years of age. This new ability made Kitten far more advanced than other dragons her age.
Her mother was a dragon named Flamewing, who died as a result of the Siege and Battle of Pirate's Swoop in 449 HE shortly after giving birth to Kitten, and Daine now cares for her. Her other relatives are her grandmother, Wingstar, and her grandfather, Diamondflame. They both live in the Dragonlands. While Kitten has visited her dragon relatives, she lives with Daine, Numair and their children and considers them her family.
Kitten has also a very close bond to Numair's horse, Spots. She understands when he is bored or exasperated by humans who don't understand that he is more intelligent than normal horses due to Daine's influence. This might probably be because Kitten herself feels often similarly.
