The Eternal Torch is a magical torch that turns any place into a fiery paradise that's a perfect home for dragons. Its magic made the former Blazing Palisades one such place. For this reason, the Torch is a valued treasure of the Dragons of Enchancia. Everburn the Elder Dragon made his home inside the cavern in which the Torch is kept.
The Torch first appears in "The Secret Library: Tale of the Eternal Torch". The Dragons of Enchancia and Princess Sofia fight to keep the Torch safe from the Sea Serpents of Enchancia, but thanks to Prince James, whom Sofia accidentally brought along, they fail and the Sea Serpents take the torch off of its pedestal and put the Forever Fountain in its place which turns the Blazing Palisades into the Watery Palisades. Sofia and James put the Torch back on its pedestal in a way that merges the Torch's magic with that of the Fountain. This magical merger transforms the Palisades into the Misty Palisades, which is half-Blazing Palisades at the top and half-Watery Palisades at the bottom. This new isle enables both Dragons and Sea Serpents to live in peace.
The Eternal Torch is the second magical object in the series that harnesses the power of one of the four elements. The first was the Mermaid Comb of Merroway Cove.
