Dragons are creatures with nearly unlimited life spans. They can survive for long periods of time, and no one has found a dragon that has died of old age. Adolescence is usually marked by the growth of a hatchling’s wings, although not all breeds of dragons grow wings and some breeds have other traits that indicate the beginning of maturation. Once they hit adolescence, hatchlings change quickly, maturing to their full forms in only 2 years.
Dragons don’t communicate with each other verbally, but they will growl to scare off predators and frighten prey. Young dragons will emit an extremely high-pitched squeal when they are frightened. To communicate, they use telepathy with each other and to speak to other creatures.
White dragons are pacifists and specialize in extremely strong healing magic. The only limit of this magic is that it can’t bring back the dead. They only eat plants and never kill living things.
Sadler is the true healer of the clan. He has taken young Gloswen under his wing and is grooming her to take over for him one day. He believes that with the proper training she will one day be an even more competent healer than he is. Sadler is often the one that other clan members turn to for guidance, as he is both kind and caring. He shows no favoritism among his fellow clan members, and treats them all with equal amounts of respect and love.
