The Wyvern has a new admirer in the form of the Connecticut Sun WNBA mascot, Blaze. The mascot became enamored with QCC’s mythical, winged dragon when he saw the Wyvern’s photo, and immediately felt a kindred spirit to the college’s well-known mascot. The unique design of the Wyvern costume drew praise and questions from it's admirer.

Blaze is the well-loved mascot of the Connecticut Sun WNBA. Known for his joy-filled dances at WNBA games, as well as his affinity for sunflower seeds (often handing them out to referees during the games), Blaze has become a fixture to the Connecticut Sun fans, as the Wyvern has to QCC.

Blaze may just find a great friend in the Wyvern. The two mascots have much in common, with a love for basketball and their community topping the list. While currently the pandemic is keeping these two future friends apart, rest-assured when COVID-19 restrictions lift, the Connecticut Sun WNBA mascot hopes to blaze a trail to QCC for a visit. QCC and the Wyvern cannot wait!
